Hello, I'm Serenity (actual name is Sarah, I'm 23). Just stumbled across here actually looking for tutorials on building fursuits, I joined a few days ago but haven't had the chance to write a proper introduction. :) Was glad to see a "clean" furry community. I am a Christian, so I hadn't found much else that was really appropriate much less active as far as forums are concerned. This is my character, Serenity. :) I tend to describe her as a wolf/jackalope hybrid, though she is more canine in structure.

As I mentioned I was looking for fursuit tutorials and this was the result of my searchings. :)

I guess a little bit more about myself, interests and stuffs. I like to draw, usually just personal stuff or things for friends. Occasionally I take commissions for logos but only when I have time and need extra cash. :) I work full time as an engineer. I specialize in our CAD work and will be graduating with my degree later this month. I also breed and show purebred rabbits. Winter is down time here though since it gets cold here in MI, at least for showing, so I'll probably be working on pieces for my fursuit during my downtime. :) In the spring though I go to shows about every weekend all over the state, and I'll be swinging over to Wisconsin for my breed nationals. In relation to rabbits I'm our county 4H leader for rabbits and a licensed registrar with the ARBA. I plan to obtain my judges license in the next few years too. At my old church I was an assistant youth leader, but our church had some issues and we hadn't had youth in the last year maybe two. Been going to a new church though which is very nice and very much alive. We've only been going there for the last few months, but I hope to get involved after I'm done with college. :) 

 

Anyway, that's pretty much me in a nutshell. Nice to meet you guys. :)

Another wonderful-sounding addition to this Community. I'm also in Michigan, not far from Rikku. You may note several Michiganders. 

Welcome.

Nice to see others from MI. I tried looking at other places for MI furs, but hadn't had the best luck. One place I "thought" I found was loaded with nasty spam and no active users. :/ I'm on the northeast side of the lower peninsula, so usually at least 2 hours away from any of the cons in our state. But that's living out in the boonies for you I guess. :)

Hello. Welcome! :D

 

Unfortunately, I cannot see your pictures. :( Can you provide an alternative link?

 

Also, you say license? Why do you need a license for a rabbit? I don't understand?

It was my first attempt at a fursuit head. :) Just finished her this last week. Waiting for more fur to add the neck, and hopefully make a tail.

Haha, the license isn't for ownership its the method they use to register rabbits with the American Rabbit Breeders Association. Unlike the AKC, the rabbits have to undergo an examination to see if they pass their breed requirements pedigree information, ect. :)

In 3 years of looking for Michigan people online, I've found only 4 from West Michigan-- 3 in the G.R.-Muskegon area. Everyone else is over in the East side. 

 

As for your pics, the first didn't work on my laptop but does here on my desktop. Very interesting. 

Also for your pics, GREAT JOB!

Thanks! ^_^ I have some buddies who have interest in furs but don't really consider themselves one. Well except one, but she's like 2-3hrs south of me now.

Nah, its not a legal thing at all. More like an accomplishment of sorts, like holding a diploma or certificate for something you worked to accomplish is all. :) I wish to become a rabbit judge some day and the registrars license is basically a stepping stone before I can work on earning my judges license.

Ah, okay. Nice job, she looks amazing! Seems like the fur could use a tad more shaving but that's just me. Don't take my word for anything since I know nothing about fursuit making lol!

Well my brother Cobalt beat me to it lol. I'm G-Root btw. Glad to see another MI fur join the site. I'm on the east side of the state in the Tri-Cities. Within the next few weeks though I will be moving all the way to the West side to be with another brother fur.

 

I hope you find yourself at home here and bring into many of our conversations. BTW I love the pics of your fursuit. Looks really good to be honest.

 

God Bless

I guess you'd call it mechanical engineering, we work with tarp covering systems for semi trucks, grains trucks end ect. I mostly do the CAD work involved though. I work a bit with design but mostly clean up of prints and any updates made to the system that need to be reflected on the CAD level. :-)

Thanks! I'm about 50miles north of Bay City/Saginaw area. Pretty much out in the boonies. But wouldn't have it any other way as cities (mostly the driving) makes me pretty nervous.
