Advice/Recommendations For Furry Cons
« on: November 11, 2017, 12:07:04 pm »
Hey, I might be going to my first furry convention this summer. Do you have any advice or recommendations for cons? And yes, I will be fursuiting.
(Iif you have anything that applies to other kinds of cons, please feel free to chat about it here. I go to anime cons regularly and cosplay.)  :pawheart:

That sounds like a lot of fun. I don't quite know what you mean by "recommendations for cons," but I can offer some tips for fursuiting.

-Get a friend or family member to be your handler. They can buy water, answer people's questions (ex. character's name, fursuit maker, etc.), and point out anything you miss.
-Other fursuiters will have trouble seeing, be careful that you don't get in anyone's way.
-If you have squeakers, please don't be playing with them nonstop- you'll drive people mad.
-Remember to eat and drink, you need to keep your energy up.
-If you're in a full suit, wear athletic clothes to help reduce sweat, overheating, and itching (ESPECIALLY SOCKS).

Thank you! This is what I needed to know. I will have family and maybe a friend with me so I will be safe. :) I just meant things like, how to interact with fursuiters or other social things or terminology for suits and cons
