Thanks! :) I guess a folf would be pretty common in the fandom because it is a concept that was made by the fandom. As far as I know, a folf isn't even a real thing. ;)

Furries are just people that use furred animal avatars in 3d chat programs such as IMVU. My wife is one and I also have several furry avatars on IMVU chat. Mostly, they are just people who have an affinity with animals and mimic the animals they they feel a close kinship with, i.e. a fox. There are also "Scalies' who use mostly reptilian avatars. There are also other anthropomorphic avatars in the 3d chat world. Mostly, they are just normal people who love animals.

Its a little more complicated than that, especially for those who started being furries in the 70's and 80's.

I had never heard of furries prior to reading this thread... I must have found it interesting as I read all 11 pages. I can see how your personality would alter a bit in your fursonas. Something about wearing a costume lets you role-play into something different, or let out some parts of your own personality that are otherwise inhibited.

I didn't know people would dress up to go out in public without there being a special occasion for it. Seeing the pictures of Truckerdog at the rail station, I would have assumed that he worked for the train company as a children's entertainer.

Anyway, I think it's cool. I don't think I'll be donning any suits any time soon, but this thread reminded me of that time back in grade school (1980s) where we made our own version of The Wizard of Oz and I played the cowardly lion, wearing a suit that didn't look half as cool as all of yours.

Gosh I am glad there are furries in this community, I only recently started to go deep into the idea of making an sona as for the longest time I just liked some of the cute and soft art.. so I guess now I'm sorta going deeper, and this topic made me a bit happy to see that this community is welcoming!

Oh man, you have no idea how many people think exactly like you do. :D It is kinda funny, though! That's the idea behind it - to look like an actual railway worker. :)
I like trains. 🚂

...and trucks too. 🚛
