so I send my niece and sis out for buckram while I stay here and work
cutter table lady "what are you making with this"
"we make costumes and use it for eyes"
"you mean like a fursuit or quadsuit"
*notes crutches
"are you.. Beastcub's... sister.. maybe"
"oh, well then I don't have to ask about the crutches... I am so sorry about what happened"
turns out the gal is a Sac-Anime goer and is making a lion King quadsuit.

Also apparently when a group of fellow students at my nieces school realized she was related to me she became like a celebrity to them o.O

...sometimes feels soooo weird having people know who I am o.O

like the one chick who ran up to be at a fairy fair asking if the head I was wearing, which I had not even debuted online yet, was a beastcub head, and I said yes, and then she asked if I am beastcub, I said yes, and she had a spazzy tizzy fit o.O

and once I was at a ren fair with BC and chatting it up with this one girl who was asking how I made this and that cause she is making one, I get an email 2 days later from her because she was online and saw the suit and had no idea she was talking to beastcub and was all happy she met me...

it is soooo weird sometimes to me when people know me... my life is still what it was when I just made these for fun and had no reputation or following or whatever the heck is it I have, I guess a simple way to put it is I am famous now (though that sounds big headed to me)
.... I often forget I am "famous" o.O and sometimes it weirds me out lol

A few thoughts here:

1. You're being recognized for your style, and that's awesome! Nobody is able to reproduce characters the way you do because you have your own unique look... and that's great!

2. I'm working on my MBA and I've been in digital marketing (websites, social media, etc.) for years, so don't take this the wrong way, but perhaps "Micro-Celebrity" would be a better description? In its simplest terms, a "micro-celebrity" is famous to 15 people, not 1.5 million. Because of the Internet, sites like DA, YouTube, and all other forms social media, this is becoming a common occurrence... I have an acquaintance that dubbed himself a "micro-celebrity" several years ago when podcasting was becoming big, and his following was (and is) approximately the size of yours... and I personally still treat him as a celebrity.

3. The above does not- in any way- negate the fact that you're really talented and worthy of much-deserved attention... It's just an interesting thought I had while reading your post.

4. If I were to ever run into you at a con or faire, I'd definitely geek out, because (micro or not) you're a celebrity to me. :D

Dude! I've dreamt soo many times that I've met you... I would probably die. And then ask you to marry me. And then die again.

People know you here too! :D

When I brought the Gypsy quad to our Renaissance Festival, I had several people ask if it was a Beastcub quad, and then spazz out when I answered yes. XD I had one girl who spazzed actually pet him like he was the greatest thing ever. It was hilarious. A couple of people even said they saw you on YouTube and could not believe the quad was here in front of them. :)

...had that happen to me on the campus of Michigan State, kind of. However in my case, I had just met a group of random Korean international students, and they were mugging and taking pictures of me with their camera.
A random student came by and said "nice suit! You ever to go cons?"
I said "no," and then she asked "Is that a Beastcub suit?"
I said "Why, Yes!"
She answered, "Cool!", then turned and walked off, leaving me to finish up with the other students, before I could ask who she was, and how she knew.

yo're also one of my role models. ive been attempting to research about fursuits since i was 9, all because of you. i think it was your white wolf quad, then i just HAD to start making fursuits. and whattaya know, im 13 and im already making resin heads.
DragonGames Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
you are!!!!!!! youre totally famous! your probably on the top 3 best fursuiters ever! no kidding!
NoveltyAct Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2012  Student General Artist
I'd be like that if I met anyone I follow online. Actually I met a furry at RenFest and was like "OMG I Love your suit, who made it!" and we got in a 20 minute conversation on it. then I found her online as was like "I MET YOU!"

You are 'famous' (quotes) because you are supremely skilled. No quotes.
M0NSTERMUTT Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's because a lot of people have you as a role model (including me) and may not even realize it's you until a later date! Also, your work is very recognizable :3

y, if I ever ran into you I'd fangirl too! XD

I know that feeling... My ex-boyfriend and long time friend Chris is now a local celebrity, and has started to become well known elsewhere for his dubstep and techno. It's weird, cuz people find out I know him, and then flip shit.

And on top of that, I've started to become recognized in my area as 'that model chick Vikki'. People I never talked to or even knew in high school try to rub elbows with me in hopes of knowing someone famous... It gets annoying at times, but it's nice to know my name is out there.

Either way, don't let it go to your head. Chris and I often joke around about how we can only hang with each other and none of our old friends because we're "famous" now. Just keep your humor about it, and remember that you're just as "famous" as you act.

It comes to me as no surprise at all. :)

...Thanks for sewing some of that magic of yours into these awesome, fluffy wearable pieces of art!
DarknessRavyn Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2012
I've had that all of once, but it still felt really wierd.
A friend of mine has become a quite well known suiter in the UK, known as Reskell or :iconlockian:, and because I featured in a couple of her videos she recognised me and got a bit fan-happy.
BritishCosplayer Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
thats because your soo dam cool and easy to get on with
chakuu Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2012
I recently heard that someone had a fan-spazz over me. xD
my friend said she has me in her class and the girl just flipped. hahaha
it's weird, but kinda cool. x3
DawnSentinel Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2012
That's cool. I'd be freaked out if I had that kind of fame. I'm shy and awkward XD

Ummm I have been telling that to you for years so this is not news to me, fyi.

lol Very awesome. I'd love to meet you, too!

Your work gets allot of exposure and with that comes a measure of notoriety.
From what I’ve seen you’re also open and sharing with information on resources for materials which builds reputation with suppliers.
I think maybe more unexpected by you than weird, but it speaks very well of your craft and your works.
xX-Chase-Xx Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Well then x3 Well your fursuits, and quadsuits arre very popular and loved ^^ I am a fan of your suits, I wouldn't doubt that people know you x3 That's kind of funny tho, when fans of your work meet you in person I wouldn't say they would all almost have tizzy fits x3 But they would approach you and ask you these questions x3

It's a wonderful thing to be recognised for the beautiful work you do.. The best thing I see is that you are not arrogant about it, which makes you that much more a better person..
It's funny, but I get a similar, but different reaction. When I run into people (out of costume) and start talking to them about the transportation museum I mascot for, I get asked, "Do you know the mascot? He's so cute and friendly!" I just tell them I know him very well and wink. Some people figure it out.

Hehe I got a little taste of that at my local Anime Nebraskon a week ago. I had a few people, both from DA and from Instagram come up to me, totally spazing, and saying "I know you! I saw you make this!" and then give me a big hug :) It was pretty weird for me too ouo but I liked it :D

It truly is weird being related to u. I just see u as my aunt Lilleah and they freak out when I mention u name. I'm so not use to it

The world is a small place, and it's only getting smaller. Everyone knows everyone somehow. Not to mention, when your as good at what you do as you are, people notice.
