"Suspiciously Wealthy Furries"

The joke that a lot of furries are successful and have money to piss away on frivolous furry gear, art, and the like can be very true, but what if this just isn't the case?

Maybe you've heard of the infamous story of the $20,000 furry commission? If you haven't, this video sets a good example as to one of the many ways furries spend that prove some truly don't appreciate the value of money:

From the ridiculously rich to greedy grifters, there's a plethora of poor financial decisions made by furries on the daily. Here, @One Sick Puppy & I will highlight furries who are stupid enough to trash their cash but don't make enough lols to warrant their own threads.



Allow me to start with some obscure drama that can be described as,

"Around Troons, You Lose"

Our story here starts with an Awareness Post by one drawnbydemi as follows:

Now who was this "she" who was trusted with rent money and spent it all on "herself"?

Now what did this scalie spend the stolen funds on? Well, not rent - but we can take a few guesses:

The financial fuck-up here was trusting a furry (and troon, no less) with monetary responsibility instead of a normal functioning person.

This is just one of many small stories of furry thievery, with many more stories out there begging to be found.



Shifting gears, recall the last screenshot in the "Luxuries" Spoiler?

This is a nice segway to a community that I get most my lulz, drama and horror from;

Babyfurs

Think of it this way, these fuckers base their entire sense of pleasure, sometimes even their sexuality on diapers. These diapers, a majority of the time are single-use, disposable and expensive. To your average businessman, this is great! A consumer base in a niche area that believe they rely on a single-use product in order to get pleasure - almost parallel to cigarettes.

Rough calculations of ~$110/40 is $2.75 per, and with the possibility of multiple diapers used in a day this is a financial black hole, all for the sake of the coom. Don't forget there's expensive custom-made clothes and gear to follow.
This makes for the perfect consoomer:

Allow me to highlight an exceptional individual who is somewhat prominent in the niche community who, despite their lack of formal employment in favor of freelance artistry, lives an expensive fetish-driven lifestyle that he realistically could not afford if not for those around him.

(Powerword: Antonio L Casale), if you couldn't tell by the name is an MtF troon by way of AGP:

Now first, let's see how hard the life of this artist is:

To his credit, his form of income is through glass blowing - specifically making & selling marijuana paraphernalia. Unfortunately this business he runs is not registered with the state, so he likely files his taxes and gets health insurance through his wife. The above "Starving Artist" spoiler highlights just how reliable income is for this "business".

Antonio's wife Malissa "Lufftet Ayolf" Mensendick appears to have an office job, though her occupation is unknown.
Proof of Name: Myspace is linked to her FA.

Sounds like a hard life, doesn't it? I sure hope Antonio is doing everything he can to help him, his partner and other housemates so he can slow down on the grifting...

As you can see with the massive amount of weed, diapers & gear Antonio possesses, I highly doubt that he could ever afford this much by himself. So what does he do? He relies on everyone around him to pay for his fetishistic, marijuana-dependent and lifelong patient lifestyle so he can blow glass, get high and go to furry conventions - a financial fuck-up on him and everyone who supports his lifestyle.



Moving on, @One Sick Puppy has provided this lovely segment on:

Stupidly Spendy YCHs

Unfortunately the submission was removed and no one with brains saved it while logged in so the only archives was of a 404 page. I only have these pictures.

The YCH in question.

I know left YCH was bought but I can't seem to find the finished product and who bought it, meaning it was either scrubbed from the internet or never uploaded.

Archive of a commission journal post where he mentions the price of bodyshot to 2 characters, raging from
  • $3600 bodyshot
  • $5000 one character illustration
  • $6980 two characters illustration

Another YCH that's currently ongoing, just look at those super reasonable and sane prices.

JRVanEsbroek, another mentally ill furry artist, paid for 2 slots on this.

This abomination of an OC with a radioactive looking dick and obnoxious color pattern. The guy spent $1325 on this.
1655699407084.png

Thank you, @One Sick Puppy , very cool! I would consider these to be financial fuck-ups due to the absolutely inflated price. $7500, let alone $1325, is far too much to spend on art that an artist who is lesser-known but just as skilled could do just as good a job on for a fraction of the price! I suppose just like in reality, the brand (artist) and its popularity make up a big piece of the price tag.



For our last bit of the financial fiascos, get ready to see a frenzy of:

Fursuits

From e-begging to the fursuit marketplace itself, there's always something outrageous around the corner.

To start, searching "fursuit" in GoFundMe renders some rather pathetic results:

Fursuits, as any furry will tell you, are a tricky thing. Many furs can tell you of suitmakers taking money and running, or clients receiving a suit of quality that wasn't what they paid for. Buying a fursuit oftentimes is a gamble and/or financial risk should the maker disappear, have lesser skill than advertised, or the owner takes poor care of their suit to the point where it grows mold or permanently stinks.

In closing, furries are very creative in the art of blowing their bucks on a number of things in a number of ways! This thread invites its readers to share what they see/have seen in the fandom where big, small and/or interesting monetary Ls have been taken.

A thread for Furry Consoomers? You have my attention!

A suggestion I'd make is include stuff on actual sex toys. Furries spend huge amounts of money on things like Bad Dragon dildos and then wonder why they don't have enough money to pay rent or vet bills.

1655741947119.png


Fun Fact: Some furries have to take out insurance for these things. That's how much they're financially worth.

That's what our thread is for - any way furries blow or mismanage money, we're here for it. We also love to see examples of e-beggers burning money on non-essentials like art, gear, toys - the sky's the limit!

I'd be intrested to know what the total spent on the picture you provided totals out to, but I'm afraid that I'll be put on a watchlist with the terms I'd need to search for such things :lol:

Furries and cash tend to clash.
The fact that there's people who spend this much on YCH's, let alone, sign up for "12 month payment plans" on a furry pic is ridiculous.

And there's people who actually defend this shit lol

I can’t imagine spending more money on a piece of art or fursuit than fucking rent.

Also lmfao at $1325 dude’s entire defense being “I’m good at saving money.” Bitch you literally just threw over a thousand dollars away, that’s the exact opposite of saving.

From eyeballing the picture and weaponizing autism I'd say they've spent an awful lot. The cat in the corner of the picture looks to be around about the same height as a lot of them. I'm going to assume the cat is about 9-10 inches tall, which is the average height for a cat - which means that a lot of those toys are huge by furry standards.

Knowing the price of silicone I imagine most of them are about $100 - $150 each. There are roughly 13 rows consisting of 16-18 toys each. So there's roughly 208 - 234 toys, which means this person has roughly spent $20,800 to $35,100 on stuff to put in their butt instead of investing said money into something worthwhile.

It's funny how that $1325 feels like a small amount compared to Miles-DF's work.

Spending that much money on porn is probably one of the worst things you can consoom just because of how little time you spend using it. At least with things like games you can play them and have fun for a while. On the other hand, you'll jerk off to your porn commissions a few times (at best) and then it'll just collect metaphorical dust on your hard drive.

Max from the Korps thread is one of the first people that comes to mind when I think of art consoomers.
For anyone out of the loop, he's a fat 30-something-year-old tranny and Peter Griffin lookalike who got groomed a couple of years ago by another tranny. Unsurprisingly, he's also a massive coomer who is constantly buying art of his big-titted fursona.

idek what happened to those fucked-up arms

These nearly $400 worth of commissions were posted on Twitter in only the past WEEK.
This doesn't even account for Patreon subscriptions or commissions that are still in progress (some of which are without a doubt more expensive).

You could buy a new BMW with that money, holy fuck.
When your community is mostly comprised of commie troons, did you really think these mutants would understand even the basics behind how to handle money?

These are the same mfs who spend thousands on menial shit and then say capitalism is failing them.
It’s literally the dril tweet:
Food $200
Data $150
Rent $800
Furry Porn $3,600
Utility $150
someone who is good at the economy please help me budget this. my family is dying

Speaking of the need to chase that coonsooming coom, here's a few gems that highlight the madness that is findom in the fandom- something the working person will never understand.

First, in response to the $1325 commission, allow me to share a YCH that had its top bid at $1605 - ironically enough about findom.

How people get off to financial instability, especially in The States where a missed paycheck can throw a wrench in the gears of financial security is a mystery to me.

Also, enjoy this tone-deaf tweet:
1655747415612.png
S / A

See, how the word "deserve" is used here is an enigma to me. "The poor deserve to throw their money away for sexual pleasure?" A big chunk of furries are absolutely delusional when it comes to what they believe they "deserve." I know that I do not deserve anything, as nothing in this world is guaranteed. When people like this say they "deserve" things such as shelter & food, it's often implied that there's no expectation it should be earned via contributing to the society that provides it. To these people life is something that should only be enjoyed, with actual effort to provide positive change to their community replaced by virtue signaling, thinking that is more than satisfactory.

I know that like most threads, this one will find its way outside of the farms. When it does, some of the degenerates mentioned here will find it and feel they need to respond. If we're lucky, they'll come here and go on a huge, embarrassing tangent to try to justify their actions. More likely than not they'll stay on their social network hugbox and rant there. When they do, be sure to archive the coping and seething at how they justify their actions.

Make no mistake, I am not telling anyone what they should do with their money. Just because you spend it and you can justify it to yourself doesn't mean you're immune to outside criticism as to how foolish you look everyone else. Like my buddy @Loona puts it,
you'll jerk off to your porn commissions a few times (at best) and then it'll just collect metaphorical dust on your hard drive.

I sincerely hope it does leave PG. It ties in very nicely to things like the Closed Species and Awful Fursuit threads and potentially seeing a babyfur troon come here and throw a literal tantrum trying to justify spending thousands on diapers alone would be hilarious. Also doing math trying to figure out how much money furries spend is a horrifyingly fun game. Take my thread watch.

You did good, @Roxanne Wolf and @One Sick Puppy, you did good. :drink:

I've been saying that for years.
"We have to dismantle capitalism to save lives!"
"What do you mean it's unreasonable to sell an adoptable for $500+?!"

These people will create a character and sell it immediately. This community takes copyright theft or copycats incredibly seriously, so they're depriving someone of the chance of creating that character on their own just to charge exorbitant amounts of money for the character. Yet they will say they aren't capitalists.

From what I believe is still the record, it's a $50,000 fursuit from Zuri Studios (Twitter | Zuristudios.info)
The auction started on May 24, 2021 on the dealers den, and lasted a week (May 29).

This auction was just for a commission slot. Some artist will post their queue so you can see how many people are ahead of you. So it's very possible that it would still be years before you get a final product.

During the last day, there was a bidding war which rose the price from $25k up too the closing price of $50k. I can no longer find the listing on dealers den, but there is a tweet that captured some screenshots.

There will come a time people argue over fursuits like they were Giorgio Armani.

But not even they charge that much.
