This link will explore the wacky world of full-body costumes, sometimes
referred to as "fursuits." I'll have pictures and descriptions of my
own costume, "Tim Kangaroo," along with other anecdotes, stories and
fun relating to this rather unusual hobby.
But, for now, feel free to explore the following:
A 30-second promotional spot for a KARE-11 Extra report on "furries." The Extra is a 6-minute feature segment broadcast nightly on KARE-TV Channel 11 (Minneapolis) as part of their 10pm Report. The full report was broadcast on 12 February 1997. Yours truly is featured in this promo, both in and out of costume ("During the day, they look like this...").
In early 1993 a controversy erupted over the cartoon mascot of Sally's Saloon, a bar in Minneapolis located near the University of Minnesota. The mascot, the curvacious Sally Chipmunk, was decried as sexist and and an offensive stereotype, and the bar owners eventually had the character re-designed. Below are some rare photographs of the original Sally, "before" and "after" artwork of Sally, and an article about the controversy from the University of Minnesota's newspaper, the Minnesota Daily.
