The big event for me, however, was Saturday in Old Town when we were asked by the City to perform. It was great fun! We had 8 suiters working the crowd and just about an equal number of handlers keeping us all safe. We entertained for about 2 hours and then it was off to Fur Central for a furmeet. We ended up with just over 40 in attendance. What a day!
A few classic moments for me while fursuiting Old Town included jumping up in "stage" when a dance troupe was trying to teach little kids the moves from "Thriller." I thought I heard, "We should get one of the mascots up here." That was all the incentive I needed! It was time to ham it up (and not step on any of the little kids who were now mesmerized by the dancing bear). The other great moment was when I became a plushie. The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Company has a large stuffed bear on a bench outside of their store. I sat right next to it and remained as motionless as possible. It didn't take long before someone walked up and started poking me to see if I was another plushie. When I growled and jumped at them, they let out a wonderful scream. This happened a few times. *lol* And now...pics!
