Furry Sighting? - RonO's Ramblings

Oct. 22nd, 2009 08:38 pm Furry Sighting?

This evening, I ended up wandering around the nearby mall, Plaza Camino Real, because I decided I needed a different cell phone case. {My phone case jumped off my belt this morning -- fortunately in the car, not the train some other bad place}

As I was leaving, I noticed a couple who'd walked out a minute or so before. But what drew my eye to them was the fact that both were sporting wolf tails. To the best of my recollection, this is the first time I've seen people wearing these kind of tails (or any other kind of tail) when not at least proximate to some sort of a convention.

I am making the assumption that a couple who would sport tails would be considered "furry," but I suspect that at least for some values of "furry" this is a safe assumption.

Wearing wolf tails in public is probably no more of a problem than someone who wears a Star Fleet uniform, or some other kind of garb in public when not at, or going to or from, some sort of an event. The tails are only going to be visible from a few angles, where as a complete costume is visible from most directions.

Generally, that's true. It seems a bit more common among some far east cultures, though, to wear that sort of thing just out of the blue.

Could it be related to an early Halloween party, though, given the time of year?

Some anime fans have been known to wear tails and ears, without necessarily being otherwise connected to the furry culture.

But really, the only other explanation I can think of would be if there's a local school sports connections -- I know none of the pro teams here are wolves, and I don't think any of the college teams are, but I have no idea about the HSs.
