My Stubborn Sister by LilleahWest My Stubborn Sister by LilleahWest
Despite her recent bone graft operation and disfigured leg... my sister desperately wanted to quadsuit at Sac-Anime. Quadding is one of her favorite con pastimes and Hari/Elden (RIP) loved her Arcanine suit.

The frustration over how her broken leg was keeping her from one of her passions got the best of her... and the result was, well, this picture XD

We wheeled her around to a few locations, she would then stay in one place for a short while on all 4s and we'd wheel her to another spot.

Despite her broken body and all the negative in her life that resulted from the deadly hit and run... my sister is doing her best to be happy and move on, I think Hari would wish for her to move forward and be happy <3

Wow, I can't even imagine the emotional pain of losing so many loved ones at the same time, and having to suffer those physical injuries on top of it... She's truly brave to have been there anyway, and I applaud her (and you for helping her!). She really has a lot of guts, and I hope she can get better soon. Props to you for all the efforts you make for her, you are truly an inspiration also! :heart:
ScottGardener Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013
Kudos to her for persistence! Cosplay in fur is hard enough, but to do it so soon after surgery is dedication!
daniellebritton Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013  Student General Artist
i'm so happy your sister can still do what she loves, and is so strong despite the horrible circumstances she's in. i'm thankful you're there with her, to help her while she's mending both her body & her spirit.
know that we're all out here supporting you both! <33

Wow ... this actually made me cry ;u; Just how much dedication, and love she has for suiting and most definitely Hari. You BOTH have immense dedication and love. I don't even want to imagine how hard everything was in the beginning but WOW you guys are amazing for pulling through, picking yourselves up and creating happiness :'3 I wish you both fun and happy times for the future <3 and hope your sisters health, as well as your health, improves as quickly as possible <3
RainbowDashyMD Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Also I feel like for her wearing that suit was a sort of dedication to Hari :3 So no wonder you couldn't talk her out of it x3

Oh my gosh, this is just AWESOME~ I've been watching some fursuit convention videos on YouTube with your sister's Arcanine quadsuit in it and it would just tear my heart up thinking that she may not be able to do that again for quite a while. But lo and behold, this picture proves me wrong and just makes me smile! It's really touching to know that after such a hard time there is still a source of happiness for you two. Can't wait to see more in the future! C:

It is good to see she is doing much better and getting into her fursuit again. Should have wrapped the Arcanine's leg up in a bandage on her broken leg; would have been cute.

Praying for you all. I know it must be really hard. My hat's off to your sister for being so determined to do what she loves.

I'm so glad she was able to be happy in her suit again, she deserves all of the happiness she can get! Plus, that was really inspirational to read, for her to be in that much pain and still push to do what she loves, she's a truly outstanding person! <3
