Description:
For mascot cosplayers who do anime, videogame, movie, etc type mascot costumes.
~ This community is for those who make cosplay mascots/ fursuits/ costumes.
Ones from anime/ manga/ videogames/ movies/ etc.

~ Please stick to cosplay related mascot posts only. This isn't a place to post progress on original fursuits.

~ Posts on your progress, questions on where to buy materials/ how to make certain parts of a mascot, looking for tutorials, and things similar are perfectly fine to be posted.

~ No flaming.

~ Multiple posting is allowed, but try to limit it so it's not a small update each day. Big updates are welcome. Every inch of progress can get annoying though.

~ Auctions / For sale/ Looking for posts are allowed, just don't ask more than once a week for the same thing. Or post your ads for sale more than once a week.

Thank you. :]
