Fursona[edit]

Kitsune (2014-Present)[edit]

Yuuki (2014 Design, artwork by Fiuefey)

Yuuki is a 5 tailed Kitsune with gold fur and white tipped highlights, tails, and ears. They are a genderfluid and are comfortable with any pronouns from description. Their standard attire is a dress that draws inspiration from the League of Legends character, Ahri. Their eyes have two distinct colors: Gold and Amethyst, which denote either docile or mischievous behavior. Despite this, Yuuki's personality is generally aloof and friendly.

2015 Redesign[edit]

Yuuki underwent some small cosmetic changes in early 2015, replacing their kimono-inspired dress with capri jeans, a button down sakura shirt, and white lab coat. Their hair was also changed to flow down their back with pigtails tied using small bells. They also were redesigned wearing glasses. They released their 2015 design at Biggest Little Fur Con 2015. They officially renamed their fursona to Yuukari I. Shishome with the release of the design.

In a statement on their FurAffinity journal, they mentioned why they wanted to redesign their fursona. [1]

Then I look at Yuuki as they are now. When I first thought them up their design and character came to mind almost instantly.. it was later on that I decided what exactly in my mind inspired that design. Based on how I felt at the time I made Yuuki in that image. And some of that kind of scares me. I was not in a very clear mindset at the time that I engaged that idea.. I fear that I made a bad decision on how I wanted to perceive myself. Yet over time that perception grew on me until I believed that was the real me until the events between August and November that made my little world come crashing down around me.

Thoughts on conventions and the fandom[edit]

Following Yuuki's first convention in 2013, he made a public statement regarding conventions and the fandom.[2]

   
Yuuki

FAU6 was the first convention i've gone to, and while I was there I think I easily spent well over $250 in the way of gas money, art, and food... and I only spent Friday and Sunday at the convention! ...

..Conventions are something special. It really can show what a group of people who are passionate about similar interests can accomplish for the sake of others. While it normally isn't something that is the main goal when attending conventions, the fact that we go out of our way to raise money for charities in these conventions is just breath taking in it's own stance. Just think about what kind of world we could live in if everyone was happy and willing to help eachother out all the time... we would have less violence, less war, and less hurt... It would be amazing!
