Good day, everyone!
I hope you're all ready for the weekend! And because it's coming up, I just wanted to make a couple of housekeeping announcements to make sure everyone is on the same page.
1) Remember that there is no fursuiting allowed in the hotel's restaurant or pool areas. The hallway running from the main lobby to the parking lot is fine, but please do not wear your suits into the restaurant.
2) Alcoholic beverages of any kind are not permitted in any convention space. This includes all programming rooms, Dealers, the Zoo, the gaming lounge in the basement, and the dances. We ask that if you do get a beverage at the hotel's bar that you consume it there. there are plenty of tables available (and the chairs are really comfy).

Several people have contacted us lately in regards to the big giant picture being made about What The Fur.
The question is usually something akin to "Why isn't <insert name here> in the picture?"
I would just like to state for the record that the picture, though being crafted by an artist who is a member of the WTFur staff, is not a convention-sponsored item.
The picture is a private comission, where the artist was comissioned to draw certain people's characters, and the remainder of the spots in the picture were to be auctioned off.
No one was purposely "left out" of the image, and What The Fur would not ever want to impose rules on a private comission (beyond how the image of our mascot - Bradley - is drawn.
We hope that this clears a few things up!

As furries, most of us love fursuits. To hug them, to scritch them, to interact with them… And, of course, to capture their souls in our magic boxes - errr I mean, take photos of them. It allows us to not only keep memories, but share moments with the fandom that everyone else would normally never be aware of.
Obviously, meets are a great place not just to wear and see fursuits, but to take pictures of them. And, depending on the time of day, taking pictures of them can be fairly easy. The natural light being a natural boon to any photographer.
But what about conventions? Arguably the best place to find fursuiters (let’s face it: the ratio is much higher at conventions) being a convention, you’ll likely have to face different realities and challenges from the outdoor.
Here are a few "soft rules” (no convention that I know of have them ...
