Deanna "Beetlecat" Petro

Owner & Artist

Hey there! I am Deanna ‘ Beetlecat’ Petro, and I have been creating custom-designed fursuit-styled animal mascot costumes since 2005 and professionally since 2007.

I can be considered to have a strong semi-realistic/idealized-realistic style of fursuit building. I pattern my costumes after real animals; reinterpreting realism in order to create clean, expressive fursuits. My years of costume experience, innovative practices, and personal style make my costumes distinctive and recognizable.

I keep up my site with occasional blog posts. I also am very active on my Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr pages. To receive insider updates, check out the Beetlecat Originals Patreon!
