Meet Elephant, Leopard and Bunny. Each little fur suit-wearing doll is approximately 16 inches tall and part of my latest collection called, “Furries.” They will be on display and for sale at Schmancy Toys in Seattle for the group show, Plush You! which kicks off on October 10th.

According to Wikipedia, The furry fandom is a subculture interested in fictional anthropomorphic animal characters with human personalities and characteristics. Furry fandom is also used to refer to the community of people who gather on the Internet and at furry conventions. role-playing also takes place offline, with petting, hugging and “scritching” (light scratching and grooming) common between friends at social gatherings.Fursuits or furry accessories are sometimes used to enhance the experience.

I thought it would be fun to photograph the “animals” with nature as their backdrop:
