Call for Fursuit Track Panels - Anthrocon 2012!
Anthrocon 2012 is upon us! This year, Sharky and I will be working to coordinate the Fursuit Track!
I am looking for panelists to donate some time and skill to go over areas of fursuiting experience they are familiar with!
Below are generic items covered by this track, but ANY idea would be helpful! Please feel free to forward this email to anyone who may be attending the convention who would be interested!
FURSUIT CONSTRUCTION, DESIGNERS, and/or CRAFTSPEOPLE:
To those individuals or companies who are in the business of creating designing or making fursuits, this could be a valuable way to not only reach an audience of like minded individuals who are interested in your craft, but potentially target your skills to a specific audience attentive of what you have to offer! In the past, people have done construction panels, workshops on specific types of design (eg. Electronics), cleaning and maintenance, and even panels on basic sewing technique!
FURSUIT ENTERTAINERS, PERFORMANCE ARTISTS, and/or COSTUMERS
For those costumers who either perform, mascot, or have talent in entertainment; showcasing your abilities will surely allow others the ability to understand the difficulties involved in the performance aspects of costuming. You may be able to help others better hone there craft, and become better performers overall! In prior years, we have had amazing talent showcased from major professional mascots, to independent contractors, to even general techniques on how to manage an audience!
FURSUIT GAMES & FUN!
Fursuiters enjoy showing off and proving a captive audience with entertainment! If you have an idea of an event you would wish to sponsor with your help, please feel free to also contact me as well! We will have many fursuit activities, and it would be awesome to include new ideas to make it even better! In the past, things such as the “Fursuit Dance Competition”, the “Fursuit Games”, and "fursuit charades"!
