Now to a bit after the Fursuit Parade at Motor City Furry Con 2016.
After the parade: Alkali tries valiantly to wrangle the over 200 costumed characters into some kind of order for the mass photograph.
Sometime around this part of the mass photograph I gave up all hope of finding bunny_hugger in the crowd and just started taking snaps and hoping for the best.
Look at that: someone spilled unnaturally-colored rabbits all over the yard. Wearing a full-body costume was the way to stay warm through this shoot.
And I get my first glimpse of bunny_hugger since her walking through the fursuit parade! She's the bunny in the Michigan Squirrel University shirt.
This: this is the face to fall in love with.
Trivia: By the mid-1880s the Singer sewing machine factory in Elizabeth, New Jersey, employed about three thousand workers and produced six to seven thousand machines a week, with a goal of eight thousand.
