Where Your Money Goes
- Pays FursuitReview.com-related bills.
The site as-is is fairly affordable, and the admin (Bornes) is content to pay it to help serve the fursuiting community.
- Pays contractors.
We look for volunteers whenever possible, but sometimes we need to pay outside help. You help us pay coders, developers, graphic designers, photographers, artists, etc., for content directly related to the FursuitReview website on an as-needed basis. We would also like to pay our volunteers too, occasionally.
- Saves for future updates.
Any money that exceeds our current needs goes into a high-interest bank account saved for future endeavors, including but not limited to site rebuilds/enhancements, business licensing, and associated fees that may arise. This money is saved for FursuitReview specifically and is not used for personal gain.
FursuitReview is a website dedicated to showcasing reviews for fursuits, makers, and other fashion or materials related to the furry community. Previous reviewing groups have existed, but they have all become inactive for one reason or another. FursuitReview tries to fill that void while also offering things previous groups did not. The FursuitReview page on FurAffinity began on 8 August 2015 with the FursuitReview.com website following soon after.
While other review groups focused solely on fursuits, FursuitReview allows reviews of single parts (ears, paws, tails, etc.) and non-fursuit clothing such as Kigurumi. FursuitReview only has one review form, but if your product was made by someone in the furry community and you think you can describe your experience using this form, you are more than welcome to submit your review!
FursuitReview wants the importance of a review to be the fact that it exists. We don’t want you to ask “Should you write a review?” We want you to ALWAYS write a review, no matter how biased you think you will be, how old your item is, or how long you’ve owned it. A review is always relevant. As long as you follow the rules, a review will be accepted. Reviews help everyone in the community, including yourself. If you have the time, write a review!
About the FSR Staff
There are currently only two people behind FursuitReview. The admin, Bornes (FA | Twitter), and a long-time volunteer who goes by Lu and wishes to remain anonymous otherwise.
Bornes is a disabled US Navy veteran who became interested in costuming and later fursuits in 2012. He has owned several fursuits, but has since downsized to only two. He was a long-time follower of fursuit review communities, but after becoming frustrated with their inactivity, decided to make FursuitReview.com. He wishes for consumer awareness surrounding fan-related businesses such as fursuits and art, and as such also participates in the Artists Beware community. Lu is a hobby seamstress and amateur fursuit maker from France.
Bornes does everything related to site maintenance, handles difficult reviews, and answers most messages and questions sent to the Twitter or through the contact form. He is the acting owner and administrator of the site. Lu is an active moderator, currently posting most reviews to the website and social media and handling emails related to review submissions. They also write many of the interactive Twitter posts.
