This is just a bit over the top.

Ok, it's a lot over the top. (And if you really want to know what you're clicking into, it's a man who is transforming himself into a tiger.)

Here's an article with some more details.

Oh, you mean Dennis? He's a pretty nice guy, actually. I've been on a few panels with him at MFF. He does hold rather strong opinions, however, I get some idea of why he's "transformed" himself. It's also funny how after talking with him for a few minutes, I tend to forget that this is unusual. (You know you've been in fandom when ...)

That is very odd. I find him somewhat disturbing to look at. But, hey, around fans he'd probably fit right in. *grin*

Dennis is very well know in Furry Fandom, we see him on the circuit. We had to do escort duty with him one year at Anthrocon, he was drawing quite a crowd, probably after one of his appearences on "Ripley's" or various cable shows.

You see, you learn something new every day.

Couldn't he find work plugging OSX 10.4 or Java 1.5?

The guy's own web site doesn't display anything except "click here to download the plug-in", and I don't download plug-ins from random web sites about strange people.

The article tends to make me think he's several fries short of a happy meal, but I assume it's intended to. The one detail that really makes me think he's a doof, assuming it's accurate, is that it says he makes a point of wearing contact lenses that give the appearance of a slit pupil. Tigers do not have slit pupils, a fact which is obvious to anyone who actually spends time with them.

Speaking as (I trust) the most tiger-obsessed person reading this entry, I have to say that while I would find genuinely transforming into a tiger very interesting, I just don't get the point of this cosmetic stuff.

And there's the idiot who praises
with enthusiastic tones
All centuries but this
And every country but his own.

This guy would make that
...And every species but his own.

sadly, he really is only unusual in the whisker mods - everything else i've seen done before - saw a segment about him on cable... seems like a nice enough guy, just a tad obsessed...
