Sports fans are notoriously devoted. Fursuits are incredibly photogenic. Mascots and fursuiting make a powerful crossover when they meet.
It happens at games when fursuiting fans get noticed for national TV. Sometimes a furry gets to be a mascot with the sweet moves and personalities that seem to spring naturally from our cons. There are even official, high-profile team characters commissioned from fursuit makers.
That’s all covered in the article series continued in the recent Q&A with Uncle Kage and Kodi of Midwest Furfest. It started with 1) The beginning of mascots and fursuiting, 2) Fursuiting crossover with pro sports, and 3) The National Mascot Hall of Fame.
Cornbread Wolf brings the voice of a true furry fan to this story. This isn’t about ordinary furmeets, or a safe way to support teams like everyone else. He stands out in the crowd in a super powerful way by following two passions to the same place. It’s a great example of my favorite thing, Street Fursuiting.
