Photos of Rattus at White Nights!

The wonderful pappasj invited us to a fancy dress party (around the theme of white) she held celebrating the coming of winter. I thought to myself, "What better symbolises the coming of winter than a giant rat?" and decided I should honour the event with the first public showing of Rattus to a non-furry crowd (except for the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, which doesn't count because it was a march rather than a party where people can get up close and personal with Rattus). She was very supportive so I built up my Dutch courage (apologies to my Dutch readers) with a few beers and then crept upstairs so I could reemerge as a six foot tall (including the ears) grey rat. I loved it, I absolutely adored all the attention and the cuddles. I was pleased to be recognised as a rat rather than a mouse. My beer drinking party trick also went down well. It's probably a bigger novelty for non-furries and it was a welcoming, open-minded crowd.

Click here for photos of the event! (You need to scroll about half way down for when Rattus comes on the scene, but there were lots of very clever costumes--the burst condom was my favourite!)

Looks like a fairly open-minded event ... do you think I could have gone in drag?

If you'd come in white--I'm sure you could!

Yeah! I'll pack my white tutu in case I'm ever in Brisbane at the start of your "winter."

Wow, that looks like a fun party :) And yay for rat fursuits! *cuddles!*

  The burst condom costume was a great idea, I have to admit.

Hee! That did look like fun. ^_^ Reminds me how well Red went over when we held a little party in Corinda, back in 2001 - all non-furs, other than myself. But who can't like a red panda? ^_^

Well, ristin comes to mind. Please don't take it personally. He says they're raccoon pretenders.
