Oh deer

I have a tail to tell.

A few days ago, while frock shopping with Lawless, I dropped into Paper Couture in animal form. I believe I was a wolf wearing ~silentsparrow's~ Seraph suit. As soon as I got to the second floor, I heard this:

"...A furry. In couture. I never thought I'd see the day."

I explained that I'm only a weekend -- nay, moonlighting -- furry. I only don the furry outfit if I'm wearing an adorable dolly skirt, because all that cute is simply over-the-top with a dollop of claws and fangs.

"Aww. We don't have a token couture-wearing furry?"

I caved. My furry avatars are going to start appearing in more of these photos, simply because furries are vastly underrepresented on the various fashion feeds. Furries, represent!

Now someone come give me a scritch, these bubbles are seriously smashing my tail.

***Shape, hair, antlers, hooves, skin...: Wingless Emoto's free avatars DSC reindeer 2007 GIFT in emo color (not quite sure what the name of the shop is)
***Necklace: (Second Mirage) cultured necklace
***Tattoo: *EtchD* Sin's Henna tintable tattoo
***Ensemble (corset, skirt, prim skirt): Royal Blue (RB) Eternal-Universe
***Hair ornament: *UnTone* silver chain flower

\o/ yay! Finally a furry on the feeds. I'm a most of the time Neko part time furry. Infact the first blog post I made was in my Kani. I think alot of people don't really understand furries. We can be fashionable too! I own a neko/furry shop, I started making boots and things that were a bit more furry friendly simply because there was a huge hole in sl fashions out there for furries.

I can't wait to see your future posts and will myself be blogging more using my many furs ^-^

Yay! I'm so glad you're posting in furry-form too :D SL has so many options for avatars that it's silly to limit one's self!

Though not a furry myself, I will say that the fur community will see a lot more respect if more of its community starts getting into the couture and fashion world instead of wearing crazy raver and goth clothes.

Is that really the skirt? My first thought was -- wow, sculpties aren't loading. :D I think I just was confused because the bubbles are the same color as your fur is. Still, from the neck up, the most adorable thing I've seen all week.

Auntykuro said...

*grin* Oh yes. Go check out Royal Blue -- nothing is quite as it seems in that shop.

While I don't go as a furry, I sometimes roam the grid as a tiny. Sometimes a little rabbit, or a panda. Definitely not many furries or tinies on the feed T_T

But, I do put on my neko ears and tail as often as my attachment points will let me! XD

Ach! I can think of no better person to start bringing the token couture-wearing furries to life than you. I really like how that skirt looks with your skin!

Auntykuro said...

thanks, hethr! i picked the 'emo' color of reindeer just to match!
