It’s July – It’s Pittsburgh – That can only mean one thing – THE FURRIES ARE BACK!
You see them everywhere – in the hotel.
Wandering the streets.
Looking cool on the escalator.
Purrrrr (not so sure about the skeleton suit though – didn’t have the nerve to ask).
Where could all these furry people/animals be going?
Cramming into the elevator.
Calling their other furry friends.
Looking out for each other with giant eyes.
Hey lady – a little help with my tail please, I am in a hurry ….
To gather together to get ready for the highlight – The Furry Parade! (to be fair I found this balcony where I could see them gathering and was promptly kicked out as they said it was off limits because furries don’t like to have their photos taken with their heads off 🙂
Kicked out of the overview, we made our way downstairs to find a good spot for the parade. A few furries were still making their way to the hall but still stop for photos.
It is immediately obvious if you are going to dress in a furry animal outfit you want your photo taken – so it is the easiest gathering anywhere to get people/animals/whatever to pose.
And with that the lead furry bangs his symbol and the parade starts.
Strutting their stuff.
High fives from this (fill in the blank – I don’t know)
Some came close by to say hi.
A paw wave was very popular too.
More ‘Ta Da’
Hoping the rose wasn’t for me.
Name that animal.
The band (yes they were playing their instruments in their furry suits).
This couple had matching wing suits. She (?) took a tumble and the crowd went ‘oohh’. When he (?) helped her (?) up they went ‘ahhh’. Fur Suit RomCom.
There were a few ‘non furries’. While this, and other things we did this weekend, were repeats, they are totally worth seeing a second time. And thus began our repeat weekend in the Burgh.
