Deal of the Century

Back in 1988 I was visiting my parents in Chicago when I saw a story about a costume warehouse cleaning out their stock. I went there and found a couple of fursuits for under $10 each. Being a poor grad student and being very self conscious about my inner furry, I only bought 2 costumes. I still kick myself for not buying more.

Yesterday I found out there is a costume store in L.A. going out of business. I found out that there were about 20 fursuits selling for next to nothing. Well, let's just say that I immediately jumped at the chance and will hopefully have them by the weekend.

Now you're saying to yourself, "Sabot! You have 4 fursuits of your own. You just acquired 40 from the Santa Fe Opera, and now you have 20 more! What are you going to do with all of these fursuits?!?"

For those that fit me, I will, of course, use them for gigs. It has always been a goal of mine to have some sort of mascot-for-hire business. In addition, Carol will be doing opera outreach to kids in New Mexico. She mentioned that she could adapt various fairy tales and such for the kids with me in suit. That would be soooo cool!

For those that don't fit me, I will most likely sell them at cons or donate them to the charity auctions like I had mentioned earlier. If I sell them, it will be for $50 or less. I want everyone who wants a fursuit to have one. I finally found something I can be passionate about. I love the fandom and want to return as much to it as I can. I don't want anyone to feel like I did for years that fursuiting was out of reach.

Anyway....I'll post pics when I finally take possession. I'm not sure how I'll get a whole bunch of suits to cons, but I'll figure out a way.
