Where are the plant-based fursuiters?
Botanical furries? Hello? Show yourselves! I'd love to see some Triffids...
My first casual search turned up this carnivorous beauty. Can you name more? Or could this be a new frontier for novelty anthropomorphic performing?
My original submission was very brief, but apparently made a psychic link to provoke the same question on Tumblr a day later.
Flayrah's benevolent dictator GreenReaper sent me a gentle reminder not to be such a slacker with writing. (Hey, I'm reallllly busy with a new semester starting... I'd love to research more, but I'd prefer to ask for comments.)
GreenReaper: If you had searched Flayrah, you would have found this (includes both a Plante, and a plant):
Video: National Geographic profiles fursuiters on 'Taboo'.
Perhaps Alkane could lead you to more? There are also several Plant-type Pokemon which should be considered.
So far, we have these Botanical furries:
Ois: "a common Australian Eucalyptus Tree"
Thorn: "mostly vines, takes the form of a leaf-nosed fruit bat with grass instead of fur and various floral aspects"
Alkane: "a hybrid of fox, Komodo dragon, and plant"
Potato Otter: "half-potato half-otter"
Terrance Jones: "a hybrid of red fox, fennec fox, and green apple."
Fox/dragon/plant? Potato Otter? This is very silly... but I like it, way better than made-up hybrids of common animals. (Personally, I think they're kinda half-baked.) How about a Parisian potato/dragon who makes his own French fries... eh?
Dressing up like Asparagi is super funny, but let's avoid pee jokes... that would be so wrong. And if you say "Asparagus isn't furry", you've probably never shared a fridge with a slob roommate.
I like my women like I like my asparagus... planted in the ground, and delicious when you dig 'em up. Kidding!! Firm with a pinch of pepper, but a little tender too.
