I don't think it requires actual animal fur.

Yeah, it can be either real or faux. However if you have access to real pelts, i'd use them over spending money for something you already have. This hobby isn't cheap, why make it more expensive?

If it's legal under Federal, Country, State, County, Municipal laws and doesnt violate the clubs "gore" caveat, it's fine.

So, even if it were obtained legally 300 years ago, I wouldnt use an ivory tusk from an elephant. But, a squirrel hide you tanned last week is fine.

I honestly have NO idea if that pelt is currently legal, was legal then, is protected because of age etc. To me, at that age, I wouldn't risk it on my costume. being so old and in such good shape as well as being a handed down family item Id keep it safe as an heirloom.

That said, if I were going to have furs on my costume I would use real ones. I dont care how good the fakes are. They never look and feel as good as the real deal.

I wouldnt advertise it beyond having it on the costume. If anyone asked, real or fake, Id tell them it's them this "It's just a costume prop" and either move along or swing the conversation elsewhere.

That would be lying.

I have a whole goat hide, with fur, that I will be using on mine. Haters will hate. Like Falin said, so long as it doesn't break the law and isn't gory, you can do whatever the heck you want, it's YOUR costume. Not theirs.

Really? Alittle white lie hurts no one and avoids the issue so everyone can go about their business.

That's a statement that is completely factual and will most like be inferred as "fake" by the person asking. So, you can "Jedi Mind Trick" them without being dishonest.
