It's here, the Anthrocon 2013 Fursuit Parade Group Photo:

The full photo is 1,300 fursuiters.

Need a bigger version of the photo? Here is a 10,000 pixel wide version!

The full-size version is linked right here! It is large enough to break some browsers, so be warned.

Tis photo is courtesy of Kreggan/Kyreeth and Warphammer, who have also been nice enough to make the photo (and their other photos available for non-commercial use if you are in them.

Enjoy!

Is 1,300 the exact count?  Also, what was the Guinness count (considering that there were likely some in the group that didn't qualify under their standards)?

1300 was the exact count, according to Closing Ceremonies.  We won't knoe the Guinness count for a few weeks, since the GBoWR will take that long to verify their count.  (Again, according to Closing Ceremonies.)  I'm certain that number will be announced here, once Anthrocon's Board is informed.

The GWR count is coming, they must examine things closely and make sure of 100% accuracy.

Thanks for the hard work on that! I do notice the left side isn't as clear which must been a struggle but still great.

You're essentially looking at an error of 'projection' - that corner gets stretched more in order to make the whole thing square. This can be reduced one of two ways: Reduce the resolution or make the whole thing look like a funhouse mirror. I have some additional ideas to reduce it next year, the best one may well be to go to a narrower format now that we have more resolution to play with.

Yea I was looking further into the detail and noticed that. No worries. I am sure there is a good solution.

Great photo.  Looking through it all I have only been able to find 3 people in there that I would question as to why they were in the photo because there isn't anything really furry/fursuit related about their costume.  I found the Stig in there again (he's about six rows back and just to the left of where KP is standing) who didn't have anything even remotely furry related about his costume.  Also say someone in the very back row almost directly straight back from the stig who looks like they were just wearing ears and a little face makeup.  The third one was beetlejuice in there just to the left of the Stig who didn't have anything furry related with his costume.  Like I said those are the only three I could find that I would really question.  Still quite an improvement from last year's photo.

Is there a fursuit character named "Waldo", by chance?

Who's the tan-and-black bunny next to the wheelchair-bound sky-blue fox in the front row on the left side of the pic?  A Dementia furry wants to know.

I see in the photo that it appears this beetlejuice "non-furry" has a GWR Red ribbon/tag attached to his con' badge.


 


I assumed only fursuiters that conform to the GWR rules for the record attempt were to get them....will this cause a problem for the GWR attempt?

That is a as-yet unofficial count. We are still waiting on certification.

That count seems kind of small, to be quite honest. I don't find it believable that there were 138 non-eligible individuals in the photograph.

What you don't see is feetpaws. I know one in our group that did not get a band for the GWR attempt. They are in there.

I'm the Beetlejuice.

I was actually originally attending because I was the handler for my good friend Kellster (the black and rainbow kitten next to me). However, when she said that I was her handler, Uncle Kage decided to count me as well since I was cosplaying. Will I matter in the original count? Whoooooo knows. But I promise I wasn't intentionally trying to infiltrate the parade.

And well, technically, you were covered head-to-toe in a themed suit.

The doors were closed at 2:00pm to Hall A for the fursuit photograph and no more were allowed in. It is possible for whoever was late was able to join in the parade after and the 1300 count was the total as the fursuiters passed by whoever was doing the counting.

Some people were not counted for dumb reasons. Sutch as my friend had a boken foot and was in a cast so he could only fit one foot paw on. He was not counted.

Actually, I saw your friend go by and slapped a number on his back. I figured that the cast counted as "part of an integrated costume" -- he was cosplaying as a furry who had a broken leg.

Would've been more fun if we could have fit the Cone of Shame on him to complete the image, but...

I hate to point it out but, there are two guys not even in fursuits in the picture. One is in a Bettle Juice with incomplet makup and the second is just in an all white jumpsuit with a full face helment, you can clearly see his face through the glass.
