Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race features Fursuiters.
I’m told that a minute of air time was recorded during a “furry scurry” in Chicago. (I’m pretty sure I have heard of such an event, but can’t find it at Lake Area Furry Friends.) I hope one day that term replaces “furmeet” for meets that get you out of the house, and maybe involve Street Fursuiting (my favorite thing.)
Cosplay celebrity Jessica Nigri wants to join the Furry side.
Nigri is known as a model/promoter for video games, and interviewer/correspondent at cons. It’s amazing when a subculture grows large enough to have it’s own hired sub-services… when is it no longer “sub” culture? (Imagine if “popufur” actually meant anything to anyone besides furries?) Popularity-wise, I suspect she’s famous-for-being-famous, but I don’t know enough to judge. I just hope this involves interest in what furries actually do. It’s a new item for the next “Celebrifurry” list:
