Furry Tauntaun Costume

Apparently nothing is sacred when it comes to Furry culture, because now they've set their sights on Star Wars with this creepy Tauntaun costume.

In other circumstances, this would be a cute mascot costume, but the thought of Furrys getting busy in this bad boy makes me want to ditch my lightsaber for good!

This is a fantastic costume im amazed somebody would make something like this especially for one event
[in this case starfest 2009]
It was made for the sci-fi costume contest there that year.
And not a furry convention or for sexual reasons as you seem to think.

I decided to check out the creators DA home page she dosent really seem to be a furry more of a taxidermist with a few sci-fi fandoms so i think you are safe in not having to imagine some strange sexual actions being pro-formed in this.

Just because a suit belongs to a furry doesn't mean that its owner "gets busy" in it. You might notice that most fursuits (including that one) don't have the facilities built in to the appropriate areas to allow for such a thing. They certainly exist on some suits, but come on, just because you're talking about a bizarre subculture doesn't mean that you shouldn't be mindful of sweeping generalizations.

@theyoshi>> Grow up. Seriously. If you don't like it you don't need to make rude comments. This is not 4chan or SA. Thanks. Also please note the below.

@OP>> This isn't furry. That is a tauntaun, definitely, but it's not anthropomorphic in any way shape or form so it's more the mascot costume you said it'd be cool as.

Also yah, would you have sex in and potentially ruin a suit that starts at about 1 thousand bucks to make?

You don't think that most of the stormtrooper or Darth Vader costumes you see have to be hosed out from time to time? Don't be naive...

Think the title should be changed to just, "Cool Tauntaun Costume"? ;) Maybe Mr. Santos is a little obsessed with the thought of furries and seeing them everywhere... :o

That said, on the furry thing, I would say that 90% of furries are people who just identify more with the cartoon subculture of it than are sexual deviants (and some do feel a spiritual connection to an animal, think Native American). They enjoy the act of dressing up and having a different persona to play out (you know, just like cosplay). These suits they make take a lot of manpower, time, and money. Cleaning and maintenance can be difficult and who wants to ruin their suits with acts that you think they're doing. They definitely don't.

Back to the costume... That is really well done and that person is obviously quite talented. :)

Even if this was a "furry" costume (which as others have said, it doesn't seem to be fandom-specific) the immediate assumption that furries have sex in their costumes is ridiculous. Furries are no different than any other cosplayer; in fact, that's basically what fur suiting is. The main difference being that, instead of dressing up as a character from a tv show, comic, movie, or video game, you're dressing up as a character you designed (usually).

A very, VERY tiny minority of suiters would even consider "getting busy" in their suits, which not only cost thousands of dollars to custom order (since you can't just walk into a store and buy a fur suit like you can with pre-existing pop culture costumes), but they're hot and uncomfortable and difficult to clean. And almost every single fur suit maker voids their warrantees and refuses to do repairs or touch-ups on suits that have been "modified".

I know it's funny to make "furries are perverts" jokes, but come on.... Can we just appreciate that this is a sweet costume without the need to throw 2nd grade level insults at a random geeky fandom, PLEASE?

You all need a sense of humor, can't you tell when somebody is joking around? Are you here for serious content, or fun content? Cause if you're here to read something serious, don't bother checking out my posts. I was joking around, but furrys obviously don't have a sense of humor. Maybe your character has one, and you have to be in costume in order for your sense of humor to exist? If that's the case, put your costume on before reading, and commenting on, articles in the future.
