Hello guys!

I'm new here and decided I should post an introduction thread. (i'm just going to go through the questions listed on the stickied post because they are good ones!)

- Do you work or go to school?

I am currently an artist, who is also hoping to go back to school get a masters (or a second degree, depeding on where I go) in illustration or game art (concept art- entertainment design, animation, storyboarding) that type of stuff. Until then (hopefully this fall or spring) I'll be doing temp jobs and a myriad of shows to pay the bills. so that's what I do for money.

What is furry?

Oh, that dreaded question… What to say?   I keep it simple. No one knows what anthropomorphic means. No one wants to hear recursive blathering from some geek about a weird thing. My ‘public’ or ‘general’ response to anyone is: “Furry is anything involving humans with animal characteristics, or animals with human characteristics.”  Simple, done, no confusion, and my answer naturally invites easy follow up questions.

Also, my answer may change depending on who is asking the question (knowing your audience). I know a guy named Bob. One day Bob asked me, what is furby?  I replied, “Bob it’s a secret. Furries drink beer and play games and dress up like animals.”  Bob was satisfied with that answer; and now Bob is cool with furries because of how I answered him.

Hello everybody my name is Fen, and I am not new to the furry fandom.  I have been in the fandom for about 10 years, but never really been active in the community since it was never real large around me.  I had gone to AC '07 and '08, also been to WPAFW '06, '07, and '08.  I do have a partial suit and went under the name Dukat at that time (black bear w/ green hair on top of my head).  I have always enjoyed the fandom and found some amazing people all over.  I am hoping to find some new people to talk to here online and make new friends.

Good day

We have been invited by the Mario Lemieux Foundation to take part in their annual 6.6k Run and Family walk. The purpose of this is to help raise awareness of finding cures for cancer and Austin's Playroom.

We are looking for anyone to register to walk or run or even donate.

The event will take place at the Consol Arena on Oct 4th, try to arrive an hour ahead so you miss the road closures and get parking. (FREE on site)

I have obtained permission to wear the suit if I feel up to taking on the full challenge of the 6.6k. Otherwise I will run it without. You are welcome to bring any level of suit you feel comfortable in, please be advised of the health concerns and bring a camel pack. Yes, there are other people there including a fireman in his full gear who runs it.

Is it possible to have multiple fursonas or make multiple furry characters but not stick to one? I love all animals equally so it's really hard for me to just pick one as my identity. What are others thoughts on this?

Howdy. Since everyone keeps asking me I'll place this here that I'm turning 21 in about 3 weeks. Probably not doing anything special on my actual birthday since it falls on a Sunday this year. But if anyone want to do anything the weekend after I'd be down!

Anyone know of any places up for rent around the city? Preferably 2 bedrooms that are no more than $750 a month. Pittsburgh for anyone who may not know.

This temporary place we're in right now isn't working out as well as we would like, so we need to find something rather quickly.

EDIT: This is for me and my mother to move into to clafify; since we both take the bus to get to work, we can only move out but so far.

I'm not gonna link them one by one and just link to my channel instead since there's quite a few.  But I did a public fursuiting about a month ago with the fursuit I made for myself!

Well, tomorrow I'll be in Philly for a service project, and it requires interactions with live human beings! If you're casually wandering around the area and happen to see Ursinus students handing out anti-animal cruelty flyers, see if you can find me. Maybe I can meet someone!

I'm Hciwnis, a wolf with red eyes and black markings on gray body. I have been a furry since I was fifteen. I find out about the fandom, because people in high school were talking about it, so I looked it up. From that point been a furry, because I liked the group of people. I am a college student currently, studying to be a video game artist. I work at a grocery store (Shoprite) as a lever, as for other hobbies or interests. I free-run, ride my bike to work and play video games. I love to go on adventures seeing new things is awesome. I would love to fursuit, but money.

Hello friends! 

Just a quick reminder, as the event is a little less than three weeks away, I'm once again setting up and hosting a Mini-Golf Meet at Kneiss' Mini-Golf off Babcock Blvd, just passed the McKnight Road overpass in Ross Township, outside of Pittsburgh.  The meet is scheduled for Thursday night, August 6, from 7pm until 9-ish. 

After we've played a round of golf we usually go grab a cool treat at the Dairy Queen just down the road, or some folks drive down to the new Sheetz for more substantial foodage.

I posted more information about the event on the PA Furry Forum's Calendar http://www.pa-furry.org/node/10461/pittsburgh-furry-mini-golf-meet  The meet is Fursuit and Ears and Tails friendly.  It's outdoors, mostly in the shade, and will be open to the general public as well.  The event is weather dependant.

Hi guys!  My name's Zee Wolf and I'm currently living in Maryland right near DC, but in about 5 weeks I'm going to be moving to Pittsburgh for school.  I've been "furry" all my life but only joined the fandom about 4 years ago when I realized that furries weren't the weirdos that others often make us out to be and that I might actually be a good fit in this fandom.

I've been attending Anthrocon since 2012 and just recently came home from AC2015, but this AC was different than all the others for me.  I was a lot more social and make lasting connections with other furries, which was awesome because my goal for 2015 was to make more friends in the fandom.  I also debuted my first fursuit, whose picture you can see in my avatar.

Once I move to Pittsburgh, I'm planning on coming to a bunch of furmeets hosted by this group so that I can get to know more furs!  I look forward to meeting all of you!

Sweatdrop/embarrassed Oh no... I knew this day would come!

After a frantic evening of last minute accoutrements packing, checking and double-checking and surveying and repacking, I finally head up to Ursinus College today. It's just a three week excursion, but I might as well let you guys up there know that I'll be in the Collegeville area (Philly is 20 minutes away). 

I'm not "worried" about the trip, as I've spent time abroad alone (India was amazing, I may tell people about it). This is more of an informative blurb and a way for me to let people know where to find me! August 1st I'll be up in NY, not sure what part of it yet, for a school sponsored day trip. When I have more details I'll try to either update this post or make a new one specifically for that. 

Thanks for reading! Don't be afraid to reply if you're a Philly/Collegeville fur!

Generic smiley face HAI!

I'm totally new to this site, and was actually pointed here by a new friend I made over the weekend! My name is Trexler, and I am going to be spending my life up in Pennsylvania for the next 4 years as I attend college! It was recommended I find out about furry groups or people who would be in the area, so I'll cover where I'm going later. For now though, how I got here!

Ok so, to start, I am from little old Lebanon. Were famous for our gross meat. Thats pretty much the history of Lebanon. Lol, my name is Vicky and im proud to be a furry. Ive been in the fandom for a little over two years, but have been making ocs and stuff pretty much my whole life, i just didnt understand it until a few years back. I have made two fursuits and am working on a third one. I draw a lot but i never seem to get better. Im pretty boring but im a fun person once i get to know you. I wouldnt say im a total nerd, but im not a typical person either. Im in love with biology and specifically the study of mammals. I will be going to HACC starting in the fall and will be taking my gen eds until i know what i want to do. Im 18 and live with my parents (and my 22 year old annoying as shit older brother) so yeah. thats me Tongue

Hey all:

Here is the imgur link to my sorted Anthrocon 2015 gallery. I have taken the time to delete all the dups and bad blurry shots. This leaves a much easier to browse gallery. I just hate it when you see a gallery filled with extras  and junk.

Enjoy.
