WTF: A furry convention?
A furry convention (also furry con or fur con) is a formal gathering of members of the furry fandom — people who are interested in the concept of fictional non-human characters with human characteristics. These conventions provide a place for fans to meet, exchange ideas, transact business and engage in entertainmentand recreation centered around this concept. Originating in California, USA during the mid-1980s, there are now over 40 annual furry conventions worldwide, mostly in North America and Europe. The largest furry convention is Anthrocon which is held each year in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
Furry conventions offer a range of volunteer-led programming, usually focusing on anthropomorphic art, crafts, music and literature. Some raise money for charity.Attendees often dress up and wear artistic name badges for identification, though the majority do not bring fursuits. They may also spend money on the work of amateur and professional artists, both directly and at auction.*
I have no idea what this image is supposed to represent I can only assume that it is a furry thing. I still don’t believe that people dress up in Tony the Tiger suits and parade around spewing anthropomorphism. Wiki says that the biggest convention is only a few hours away from me. Maybe I’ll sneak over there and to see it for myself. Where are these people? I’m thinking that they are in the closet and I hope that they never come out. There has to be therapy or medication of some sort available for this syndrome.
