90's pop punk

some shiro headcanons that i finally decided to share

  • his team on pokemon go is valor 
  • even though it wasn’t celebrated that much in japan, he finds halloween to be one of his favorite times of year 
    • minus the fact that at a halloween party no one told him there was alcohol in the punch
    • he threw up on the walls and was taken back to his room 
    • however pictures were taken and word got out to keith (he refuses to let shiro live it down)
  • he doesn’t like to curse but will under stressful situations
    • keith often makes bets with shiro that he will cuss at least once before the day is over 
    • keith usually wins 
  • his favorite type of music is electro swing and late 90′s pop punk
  • his favorite part of the brownie is the corner pieces 
  • since no one else does it, he takes the liberty of embarrassing his brother at least once a day
    • shiro: “hey, keith, remember that one time in middle school when you wore this—”
    • keith: *threatens while shoving him out the room angrily*
  • he is a cat person
    • his family owned a cat named jelly because of the time where it knocked over a jar of jelly landing on shiro
    • this made him hate jelly for a good two (2) years 
  • while he wasn’t a frat boy while in the garrison, he was persuaded by his peers to go to one (1) party 
    • turned out he was pretty good at the kegstand 
    • that historic moment was known among later students who refuse to let him forget
    • “i go to a party ONE time!”

    • he quickly grew up to be the older brother keith would admire

On the Evolution of Fursuits

Has anyone ever wondered how the first fursuits looked like? I know I have. I’m actually quite curious as to how fursuits have evolved over the years.

 Did they simply start out as mascot costumes, where vision was through the mouth? Or did they have through-the-eye vision and tear-duct vision like today’s suit. I’ve read something a few months ago that claimed that 3D/follow-me toony eyes were quite the big deal when they were invented. I wonder what other fursuit feature, that we now take for granted, made a splash when they first appeared in the fandom. Also, if they weren’t present from at the dawn of fursuiting, when did realistic fursuits first made their presence in the fandom?

We see new styles being invented all the time. At first, they seem extremely unique. It can be argued that eventually, these styles become more common as new fursuit makers get inspired from these innovations. Now i’m not saying that any two fursuit makers have identical styles. In the contrary, they are all beautiful works of art, each with their own distinctive characteristics. What I’m saying is that they have similar features and build techniques (balaclava, bucket, resin, etc…). As new styles become popular, others must surely die off. There are a bunch of 80’s and 90’s trends that, while popular at the time, simply make us cringe today. Is the furry fandom an exception to this phenomenon. We can see influences of scene and raves in today’s art and fursuit, but how has 90’s pop-punk and 80’s rise of pop and other pop-culture trend effect the styles? 

I’d like to propose a small study of the evolution of fursuits. I’m going to try to dig through the internet in search of old pictures of fursuit. Unfortunately, many websites and servers that most likely stored this pictures are no longer in use today, and popular websites such as Furaffinity and Weasyl were invented in 2005 and 2011, respectively. This is were I need your help. If anyone has any old pictures or information or stories, or know where I can find such info, please send me a submission or an ask! This would be much appreciated. 

TL;DR: I’m looking for retro fursuit pictures and art!
