One of the favourite fursuiters of my barista Angus is Dal the Fennec fox. He saw the photos that Boxer the Fox had shot on Flickr from one of the official photo shoots. One shot of Dal and Lord Darius Foxworth stood out. Angus reckons that Dal had hand made his aviator helmet I'm not so sure knowing how much a certain fox spent on a top hat recently. Instead of just chatting about the weather I talk to Angus about furries.
One of the topics that come up is trends in the fandom. One of the trends is that you don't see many semi realistic or realistic fursuits commissioned. They must be out of vogue because the most new fursuits that I saw at FurDU were from Made Fur You and Lazy Lupe. I even mentioned that one of the makers selling realistic partial fursuits had to discount their stock because they had trouble selling them.
