Christine started fursuiting in early May 2012. She received her first partial fursuit of Sparx from a maker in El Paso, Texas who goes by Truffles Tiger. During late 2014 the partial was maliciously destroyed.

In 2015, Christine commissioned an updated version of a Sparx partial from Lazy Lion Creations.

Christine attends events such as raves, anime conventions, furry conventions, and meet-up gatherings in her partial. She has been seen at Texas Furry Fiesta, Midwest Furfest Anthrocon, Rocky Mountain Fur Con, Arizona Fur Con, and other conventions in the United States.

Attire[edit]

Sparx can be seen wearing an electric blue zip-up jacket, black ripped skinny jeans, and an Electric brand hat on one of her ears.

In other instances, Sparx can be seen wearing dresses, skirts, and a beanie of random color on her head.

The current partial has piercings such as chrome lip-rings and white "tunnel" gauges in both outer ears. She also wears a black leather choker collar which has a hollowed out metal lightning bolt around the ring.

Personality[edit]

When in fursuit, Sparx takes on the character of a curious but edgy teenager who just likes to have fun and meet other people who are into the same things she is! Sparx enjoys all of the fundamental things an anthropomorphic dog would enjoy doing such as but not limited to: partying with friends, listening to loud music, doing things she probably should be, getting into trouble, barking, ect..
