My First Furry Convention (Confuzzled 2011)
Hello everyone I thought that I would share with you some photo and bits and pieces I got from the Confuzzled Furry Convention of 2011. Now some of you may be wondering what a Furry convention is, or even in fact what is a furry. Well let me enlighten you alittle. A furry or fur as some of us call for short is a large and varied sub-culture, all of which like Anthropomorphic characters. These are Animals that have in them human characteristics, you know some yourself even such as Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Sonic the Hedgehog etc. The list is endless. Most furs also have one or two Animals they feel they really connect with and sometimes make a "Fursona" which is an identity they give themselves based on the animal(s) they like. For me I have a few, of which I will go into later. But regardless this growing sub-culture is as varied as there are different species of animals (including fantasy ones like Dragons etc) becuase the fandom is so broad and varied Calling someone a furry is like calling someone a "Sports Fan" it doesn't identify the sport the person is interested in, at what level or even what teams or individuals they support. Similarly a furry could only be a costume performer with no interest in Cartoons or Art, or even an artist who doesn't have a keen interest in costuming. Overall its best to judge individually on each person in the fandom as there interests could be completely different from the other, some are shy, or some will not speak in costume as they are doing a preformance piece. Reguardless I myself and, most others will happy share with you what they like if people are genuinely wanting to find out more.
