The Anthro World of Furry Costumes (Fourth Edition)

00d114ca37fbc952b584f5b80c3a48b0

Just as the 4th of July dies down over the weekend, the Furries descend onto Pittsburgh for their annual Furfest. Now given that it’s summer, you have to wonder how these people can wear these suits that can weigh as much as 70lbs. And unlike the Disney park costumes, I’m not sure if they contain fans. Nonetheless, these anthropomorphic cosplayers have been a source of endless fascination by many. Though some might resemble humanized versions of their animal, some can come in very bright colors. While some have a sort of mix-and-match critter thing going on. Anyway, for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of furry costumes.

  1. A fox should always show off its furs.
0a6982ebc0dc7a3e7c96cb1e7ba5ac6c

At least I think it’s a fox. Still, their fur has spots on the tail, upper chest, and ears.

2. My, what a handsome pair of horns.

0a28994265c50322d47f54a91a8e673a

Though I think they’re far from the savannah. Yet, they have hooves on their hands and feet.

3. Look, out someone’s green with envy.

000be618bfa2ecb38001bce71ef2c511

This one is green with horns and a white mane. Also, has hooves on their feet. Kind of a mix between a dog and a satyr.

4. Nothing beats spikes, horns, and scales.

0bd568c6de5cecb383eaa478b3a600e3.jpg

Despite that scales are usually seen on reptiles not mammals. Yet, you don’t want to go near this fantasy dog.

5. Guess this dog works for PennDOT.

0d5109a1a2f0342679966aba2b30d753

Because they’re wearing a bright orange vest. And it seems to be writing a citation. Wait a minute.

6. Need a paw?

0ea53ce48c57a9ce1ca59508291489d9

Someone’s willing to lend a hand. Though their ears are rather long.

7. Seems like you’ve run into a punk hyena.

1b50bd2b2ec2290e0ff6acc2c6e75327

This one has red fur on the mane along with some earrings in their ear. Reminds me of a stereotypical drug dealer.

8. Perhaps a skull helmet would suit you.

1c745bfa334fd57996f1486c526cf21c

Well, this one has a skull helmet with horns on it. But it goes well with the stripes on their body.

9. A fuzzy neck can be absolutely fabulous.

2a88efcd36802563d36389f7a2bef116

Yet, I’m not sure the black neck fur goes well with the whole fursuit. But they don’t seem to care.

10. Blue back spikes must always match the fur on top.

2afe1ee199b6c803d11da156f9fe4be5.jpg

And they seem to be on a beach in a palm tree location. So they must be roasting.

11. Sometimes a bright green stripe is all you need to stand out.

2bdf52c0d8ff95d8a32ce2c44a0c121d.jpg

Well, they have more than one neon green stripe. But they seem quite a climber from what I see in this picture.

12. One dog can have a coat of many colors.

2f4e6843db5d59aabd1d0ec376456b27

This one has some rainbow fur on their back. Though they’re sparkling and white up front.

13. We can all use a break now and then.

03c7193917eb9df4139e803fef86744f

This dog has yellow and blue fur. But right now they seem very exhausted. Must be the summer heat.

14. Someone’s getting funky on the dance floor.

3db81b0d5a14cd3484244ea1b67d80b0

Well, they seem more like prancing than dancing. Still, they must be sweating inside that costume.

15. A shark tail can always make a dog look badass.

3ec70daddc8b1c3fff5ef4ce0971b2ae

Sure it doesn’t go well with a dog. But neither do clothes or the color blue.

16. Didn’t know a blue dog could have wings.

3fb02bed0e674ba6cfe6790b3697692b

Actually bats are the only mammals with wings as far as I know. However, don’t hug them.

17. This bunny just wants to listen to music by themselves.

3ff383c01c683addc209d2a61854d452

At least I think they’re a bunny. Sometimes you can’t tell what animal these furries are supposed to be.

18. Never thought I’d see a green dog before.

4abe002a342cbd782a103f108952c309

Wonder what this dog would look in front of a green screen. Then again, you might not be able to see them.

19. This dog’s come well dressed.

4ac5285d0ccb0d0c607143bb2e0fedb9

Seems like they’re dressed for a job interview. Hopefully, it’s for a pet store.

20. Who says dogs can’t be badass?

4c68f7366d30de310f087984617b9770

And yes, they’re on a beach. Let’s hope it’s one in New England or Alaska. So they don’t succumb to heatstroke.

21. We all have our bad hair days.

4e48032af88d748a8debbd131dbe3d1e

Or bad fur days in this furry’s case. Nonetheless, this dog has spots and fuzzy paws.

22. Someone’s waiting at the door.

This leopard is dressed in regular street clothes. Hope they’re not inside an elevator.

23. Sometimes you better put your best tail forward.

4fa487031d507a834b8682a2dd277caa

This dog just wants to strike a pose. Yet, they’re doing no favors being in front of a car.

24. Bet you didn’t see a zebra in a hotel before.

6a26806b9eec3307d4874cf89a72d298

This one has their front legs out on the balcony. Though I don’t think they have the best view.

25. This dog’s pants are totally ripped.

6c7cf103f2445e53e28ca32321237103

Yet, I wouldn’t recommend wearing ripped jeans. Especially if they came that way on the rack.

26. Bet you want to hang out with these cool cats.

7d44943e25f06961a7ba96dc7981cb7e.jpg

On second thought, given the ferociousness of big cats, I’d rather not. They’ll eat me alive.

27. This blue and green dog is eager to meet you.

7f7f0aa0e617ce6acaae1089d88c0131.jpg

They even have a matching bandana around their neck. Yet, their nose and tongue are blue, which should cause some concern.

28. You have to be batty for pink fur.

8aa42c98407819204ff6521f410d411e

You can see their wings. But I’m not sure if I’d run into a bat like them at night.

29. Want to get a load of this cool tiger?

8bed0cec05cadd4c3e7649866c9ac4e6

This one even wears shiny shorts. Then again, I’m not sure what those pants are.

30. You can see this dog from a mile away.

8bf464b920a30fe7022a7e901b53772d

Has 2 striped legs. One has black stripes. The other has yellow stripes.

31. Some dogs are just lone wolves.

Yes, they’re sitting in an adorable pose. And yes, they have pink eyes for extra cuteness.

35. This dog lives for the ice and snow.

23e2694459f9938b8bce55877cbe7c74

Well, at least they won’t be subject to heatstroke. Nor would they need a coat either.

36. This lion might want a bit of privacy.

29be492bc06edc55ad469adf862ea8f7

At least according to how he stands. Though you have to admire that purple mane.

37. My, check the horns on this wolf.

This one’s wearing a ragged dress. Like she’s wandering a dark forest.

42. Even dragons must take a break once in awhile.

48c766ddc75c775b2bb304f6e826b855

Sure they don’t seem like they’re the kind to burn King’s Landing. But piss them off and you’ll live to regret it.

43. This lynx just wants to say hello.

59b990d0407bb98bf50f5c34c5f92bac.jpg

In case you don’t know, these fursuits can cost thousands of dollars. This is among the cheaper ones.

44. I don’t want to know what this lion will do to this gingerbread man.

62dd09b1776ca25fc1d0c997c50d2396

Relax, the gingerbread man is a prop since it’s a plush. But the pose still makes you worry.

45. Want this doe to give you the time of day?

72fa080a39f91982536c2d560e1b63ac

52. You’d call this a hipster bat.

0272bd86014f6fa84b5675429330dad4

Since they’re totally out of the mainstream. Their fur is even in neon colors.

53. Just a couple of wolves in each others arms.

457e679cddc438c029e66c5fb64a160a

Though their den is way nicer than a lot of wolf dens. Despite it still being messy.

54. Hope you can’t get enough yellow and blue fuzz.
