I really want to get a fursiut but I can't seem to find any place in Mexico where they could sell them...
Is there any place where I could get a fursuit in Mexico?

Hi, again, Dairy Cow.
Hmm, good question. I only know 2 furries in Mexico and both are artists but not fursuit makers. Now, you aren't going to find a "fursuit store" in Mexico where you can go in and by one off the rack any more than you can in the USA (although kinda cool idea). You need to commission them, just like anywhere else.
I did a little searching and came across Diego Inclan Soto, who, while his Facebook page says his hometown is in Italy, I think he lives in Mexico and makes fursuits there (https://www.facebook.com/kinredfox/info). I have heard of Kinred Fox (http://www.furaffinity.net/user/kinredfox/), who is in Mexico, as well. And I also found https://www.facebook.com/pages/costume-maker-and-fursuit-maker/117032121712822 with a little digging.
The furry fandom is slowly gaining a clawhold south of the border, and compared to the USA they have a long way to go. But while it may be challenging to find a fursuit maker in Mexico, it is not impossible. Just do some digging as I have done. And, if you need an artist to draw you a character reference sheet, I know a great one in Mexico named Dan the Bear :-3
Oh, and if anyone reading this knows of a great Mexican fursuit maker, please comment below! Thanks!
