$3 million sale raises furry auction topic. Now that’s an expensive fursuit!
by Patch O'Furr
Wearing big rugs for animal role-playing takes a lot of devotion and money.
In the above Anthrocon 2014 photo, 1,326 fursuiters broke the world record “Largest parade of people in fur suits,” set at Anthrocon in 2013.
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.
