Socialize, art, and swap costuming tips and tricks with other furries, fursuit cosplayers, therians, and anthro & feral fursona artists!

Class experience

This class is taught in English.
I am a long-term cosplayer and LARP (live action roleplay) costumer who has created costumes that include animal components such as ears, tails, and hooves, along with cosplays of characters from movies, television, and books for myself and my children. I regularly attend conventions and am familiar with furry cosplayers and culture. I am also the parent of a furry/therian child who loves drawing furry art and creating fursonas. They even drew the banner for this class! Some of my other social clubs (Warriors and LGBTQ+ fandom clubs) tend to attract students who are already furry cosplayers or who are interested in creating fursonas, so I wanted to offer a dedicated space for these learners to discuss their shared interest. The furry community skews heavily towards LGBTQ+; I am a member of the LGBTQ+ community myself and offer several classes for LGBTQ+ learners ages 8-18. 
While I assume that parents enrolling their students in this club are already aware of furry cosplay and culture, I would like to reiterate that furry cosplay is NOT inherently sexual or suggestive in nature. Many wholesome, age-appropriate resources for developing fursonas and creating costumes are available online. Children have always identified with animals (how many of us grew up in the 80s as horse girls?) and furry cosplay provides an opportunity to express that connection to specific animals—both real and fantasy—in a creative and fun way. This class exist specifically to provide a safe, youth-friendly, adult-moderated environment for young furry cosplayers and artists to connect with each other and make new friends. We will occasionally discuss issues of fandom safety, including effective ways to respond to online or in person bullying/harassment relating to the fandom. 

Please note that I do not share recordings for social/non-academic classes.
