Um, given your name, if you wanted a GoT avatar, shouldn't you have gone more with something like this?

I figured I'd give this one a shot for a little while. But aside from cosplaying and various pop culture fandoms, one of my hobbies is fursuiting! Photography and simply having fun as a character are big reasons as to why :) I know the fandom around it seems to carry some false stereotypes, but for me it's always been about harmless costuming fun :D

It does look like a lot of fun, Epicaz! IMHO, it's no different from people who wear other full body cosplays.

How do you keep cool in a suit like that?

That was always my opinion as well. In fact, I had a lot of cosplay ideas that would have been much better suited in this style, if I had the talent to back it up!  ;)


Keeping cool isn't always easy unless it happens to be 40F outside. I always use Heatgear Under Armor with plenty of water breaks, though there are other options such as cooling vests or installed fans. Definitely something you have to build endurance on, but even so... I don't think I could make it for long in a San Diego summer  :P

I recently changed mine to a picture of me.  I'm hoping this isn't a mistake, but I thought I'm already out there on FB and such, and I might as well make it easy for people to know who I am at meet ups.

Before I used photos of wild animals in my yard.  Just cuz I liked them.

I'm sure it won't be a problem at all, after all you're among FoCCI friends and family here. It's great to see a familiar face! :D

Mine is a pic of me that my friend took while we were on the Warner Bros. Studio Tour in Sept. 2015. I had flown out to LA (where she lives) and we were attending a taping of our favorite show, The Big Bang Theory, together. We went on the tour the weekend before the show taping and since it was a Sunday & the studios weren't in use, our guide noticed our Bazinga shirts and took us to the building where they tape the show and let us go in. No pics are allowed inside, but we stopped outside to take pics with the parking spots where the cast/writers park right outside the building where they shoot.

Well, I just read Watchmen for the first time and I really enjoyed it. Rorschach was my favorite character from it and I'm make a Rorschach costume for my first SDCC this year so I thought it was appropriate.  :P

LOL Sort of how I picked my but it was the first one that popped up that I'm a fan of. Then I made this one so you didn't have to change yours :)

Every time this thread pops up, I realize that I've forgotten to change my avatar... Again...  Every time...  :)
