postheadericon How to Make a Furry Persona (Fursona)

A Fursona is a representation of yourself in the furry fandom, rather displayed as an animal with human characteristics. This character can be a sort of alter-ego of yourself or a direct representation of yourself combined with that of some species of animal. Fursonas can also be known as one’s soul-self, if one has a personal connection with their furry and feels that he/she truly reflects the inner identity of its maker.

1 Choose a species for your fursona to be. Do your research! Figure out what animals you like most, or what animal you identify with. There are tons of animals out there to choose from, including reptiles of all kinds, avians (birds and anything with feathers), amphibians, horses, goats, skunks, and thousands of other species out there! And don’t be afraid to venture out from the idea of just sticking to a cat or dog. You can even mix animals together, use a fantasy creature, or even make up your own!

2 Think of a design for your fursona, like the coat color and/or markings on it. This can be as natural looking or as crazy as you want it to be. You could have anything from a simple grey-colored wolf to a turquoise phoenix to a yellow komodo dragon with red stripes and a black tail! Your fursona can also have tattoos, piercings, patches of different colored fur/feathers/scales/skin, even extra tails if you’d like!

3 Decide the aspects of your fursona’s personality, such as what they like and dislike, their good character traits and their downfalls. It may be tempting to create a perfect, “badass” character, but a fursona with both positive traits as well as shortcomings is more interesting and can be related to.

4 Think of specific details that you would like this fursona to have. Do they wear clothing? Do they have anything interesting or noteworthy? Does your fursona have feral (animal-like) proportions, or is it more anthro, with human-like proportions?

5 Think of a name for your fursona. This could be your own name or you can pick a name that you find interesting. Stay away from generic names like animal names or variations of them to avoid confusions, as there are already many people around that use such names. It’s always a good idea to google your chosen name to see if there are other furries already claiming them.
