What's With This Whole Furry Animal Hoods For Adults Thing?

While we were doing research for our winter accessories story, we came across a shockingly high amount of these fur animal hoods. Coming in all types of pricepoints and species, it seems as if dressing up like a Furry during off-hours is a thing right now... and we're here to put down our feelings about it. If you're under 18, these fur hoods are passable—we're just assuming that Ke$ha's putting something in the Pedialyte. But if you're of a certain age when you can't get away with wearing a tutu out in public anymore, please just say no. We seriously don't understand these. From the back, you look like a Rent-an-Entertainer who forgot the bottom half of her costume. From the front, you look like one of those adults with self-prescribed "Peter Pan" syndrome who wears rainbow socks and eats Pixie Stix at bars. Below, just a sampling of what we found in just a few minutes of research. Get your sadfaces ready.
