Deanna discovered costuming in 2005 while searching the internet on how to make a gryphon costume for Halloween. She never finished that particular costume but eventually entered the furry community by unveiling her first full costume - 'Springer the Klipspringer' in the summer of 2006. Over the next year, she began adding fursuit commissions to her prexisting art business of 'Beetlecat Originals'; dropping other art projects to the side until, by the beginning of 2007, she was making fursuits exclusively under the furry moniker, 'Beetlecat'. Offering full costumes as well as ears and tails. Gradually she began entering the cosplay arena as well, winning several awards with her Red XIII costume and creating her first quadsuit, Toby the Targ.
