There were two great articles about Furry fans in the news recently:

  • January 29, 2010: Furry Characters Come To Life in the Payson Roundup is an article about enterprising teenage fursuit designer Deanna Biesemeyer. She donated her skills to create Woody, the mascot for a local food drive. More of her work can be seen at SkyPro Fursuits.

Many thanks to Orion Sandstorrm for finding these!

Pointing out the positive press furries get is a thankless job, but someone’s gotta do it. So I guess I will.

Rocky Mountain Fur Con got mentioned not once but twice in the news last month.

On another note, LatinVixen’s video featuring a bunch of fursuiters dancing around an Escalade (I assume at MFF last year) made it onto BoingBoing, The Directory Of Wonderful Things.

And this just in, a brief mention of furries at Walt Disney World. The Orlando theme park has added costumed characters to promote the movie Ratatouille, which opens in theaters June 29th.
