Should point out for the non-Pokemon-savvy: Absol is a fellow Dark-type Pokemon like Umbreon (the critter I’m cosplaying) is.
I really hope that gal knows how cool she is, no foolin’. I remember when I first moved to the Twin Cities and took in my first few cons, when making a move like that woulda sapped me for days on end.
I am apparently also a “fur fan,” not a furry (albeit a badly misleading one, as seen elsewhere). Though I’ve gotta admit, if I was a furry, I would totally want an anemone fursona, ’cause I’ve never seen anybody do one of those and it would be awesome. Even if I have no idea how I’d hold up my glasses with no recognizable face to speak of.
