What's a fursuit?

A fursuit is a one-of-a-kind handmade mascot-style animal costume. They are worn for fun at conventions, at home, or out and about wherever face coverings are allowed or with permission from private businesses. They are super fun to wear and perform in! While many people opt for commissioning a fursuit or buying one, making your own is significantly cheaper and teaches you valuable sewing and crafting skills.
