Drying and airing out Suits
« on: 22.08.2008, 19:59:03 »


What about the idea of an common place with hooks and strings and at least one fan where you can hang your fursuits/undersuits to dry them after they have been sweated?

Then we need enough people who have a cold to get suits in and out of there.

Any being with a working olfactorial sense wouldn't go anywhere near that area.

Actually the sweat itself is not what causes the smell, however the bacteria that flourish in such an environment is.
Theoretically if you were to prevent the bacteria from multiplying, it should give little or no smell. ::)

In each one's room, preferably in the bathroom. But NOT on a sprinkler head!

And my intention is to dry and air out the suit fast and well before the germs multiply, there will be certainly more "uargh!!!" if you dont do this.

Of course most fursuiters do this in their rooms, but i think it might work better if we dedicate an edge of the fursuiter area or something similar to this purpose with an more powerful fan and more convenient attachment points to hang the suits on.

Is there something in the bathroom to hang a heavy suit on?
The bars of the shower-curtain are NOT a good idea.

BTW: I have seen clothes hangers for diver-wetsuits with an integrated fan.
Does anyone know where to get some of these (for 220V).
Certainly looks much better then improvising your own with plastic-pipes.

If all works fine, the fursuit loungue will provide head and body drying equipment.

Thanks! I didn't know there was a 220V-version of this one.

I was wondering of there where other models.
I don't trust plastic much with the weight of a sweaty fursuit.

Kimono hangers are perfect for hanging a suit :3

The name 'leopard' may derive from an old notion that leopards were the result of crosses between lions (leo) and panthers (pard).

Thanks for the info. They look quite sturdy.
But they seem to have nothing in common with drying the suit while it hangs.

PS:
I just ordered such a HangAir for about 50eur including shipping and handling.

Hmm, Loko must think of some way to dry his suit quickly too. Propably he will bring his hair-fan to the con. Bit of hot air (from a safe distance) may do the trick.

While you still have time, better shop for a small ventilator or a blow-dryer with a "cold"-setting.
Don't take the chance especially because you need to get the air-flow inside the fursuit. So either you
have no airflow or very hot air. Drying from the outside acomplishes nothing.
