MixedCandy German Shepherd fursuitIf you thought $1600 for an inflatable husky was excessive, consider this pre-owned MixedCandy German Shepherd, auctioned last week for $7000. [tip: sardognsca/fursuitlounge]

The suit was the subject of a five-way bidding war throughout Saturday before the winner swept in with their last-minute bid.

MixedCandy is well-known for expensive wolves and canines, but this price is more commonly associated with a new custom suit — or rather, two of them.

For 7,000 I could have gotten many horses.

You may be surprised to know this, but there are many furs out there who are VERY successful.

Exactly, I'm always surprised looking over some of the con auction sales and hearing the bidder is a Chief Executive or similar. Makes me imagine a large mansion crammed to the roof with furry art...

Fox's aren't crazy, they're eccentric.

At least, rich foxes. Rich people can get away with a lot.

I hope this doesn't lead to a fursuit bubble.

I hope whoever bought this will be very happy with it!

MixedCandy fursuits are the Bentley's and Aston Martin's of the fursuit world...

He's a beautie! Worth every penny IMO!

That is way too much I make enough to afford but there is no way I would spend 7 grand on a fursuit I paid $1100 for mine from OMG Pineapples about 2yrs ago and they did a fantastic job I am completely satisfied.
