Wearing big rugs for animal role-playing takes a lot of devotion and money.
For each fursuit in the photo, allow a generous but in-the-ballpark worth of $2,320.51. It makes the whole crowd worth exactly what someone paid for The Cowardly Lion costume from the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz, worn by Burt Lahr. On 11/25/14, the original Cowardly Lion sold for $3,077,000.
