I'm a little dismayed that folks were that aggressive to you! I'm sorry I wasn't around to see it. Staff needs to be looking out for this kind of harassment, I think. It must be frustrating to not be able to tell them off.
I've enjoyed watching your fursuit evolve over the years.
It's looking awesome.
A Furry panel would be a great idea! I follow a couple of fursuit makers on DeviantArt, and making these things truly is a skilled craft. People need to know that there's a whole lot more to fursuits than the junk that they read on the Internet.
