T-shirt orders
fun, laughing, amused
Wanted a Furstivus t-shirt but missed your opportunity to grab one at the convention? You still have a chance to get one.

Email and include your name, mailing address and shirt size (up to 3XL) and we will get back to you with payment instructions (we can take PayPal or any Credit Card).

If you were a Sponsor at the convention but you did not get a shirt, you are still entitled to a free shirt. For everyone else, shirts cost $15 each + $5 shipping.

If you are a sponsor and you already left your information with us at the registration desk in order to receive your shirt, you should receive an email shortly to confirm your shipping info.

Thank you!

Success! Furstivus numbers, shirts & lost and found
fun, laughing, amused
We owe big steaming thanks to everyone who helped or simply came and enjoyed themselves for Furstivus. The con was a complete success thanks to you!

The final numbers:

Attendees: 238 (52 single days, 134 regular, 41 sponsors, 10 "Miracle" sponsors and, as of closing ceremonies, 1 "Big Cheese" sponsor)

The "I demand a recount!" fursuit parade: 45 fursuiters

Grand total raised for Child's Play Charity: $3,243 (more than $13 per person!)

Because the attendance was so much better than anticipated, we ran out of supplies. If you registered as a sponsor or super sponsor and you did not get a Furstivus t-shirt, please send us an email with your name, shirt size and mailing address and we'll ship one out to ya!

We also have a few items left in our Lost & Found, including clothing, gloves & a charger. If you lost something please send us an email with your info and if we have it we'll ship it back to you.

Finally, although there are no plans to continue Furstivus next New Year, we appreciate all the feedback we can get to help us with other cons. If you have any thoughts about how Furstivus ran and how it could have been improved, please don't hesitate to email us!

Happy new year, and have an awesome 2012 everybody!

Registration info

We cannot let you into the convention if you don’t have an ID. If you don’t have an ID and cannot get one in time please contact us now and we will try to work something out.

Happy Holidays from Furstivus :)
fun, laughing, amused
To our friends and families, fuzzies and fuzzettes: Whether you celebrate Festivus, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Yule, something else, a combination thereof or nothing at all, we hope you have the warmest, fuzziest and happiest holidays you can imagine. Please have a peaceful weekend, give lots of hugs, and rest well, so that you're awake, lively and ready to party hard at Furstivus next weekend. :)

Get any interesting holiday gifts? NO!? Gather your unwanted goods and bring 'em to the convention! The charity auction is counting on donations to help raise money for Child's Play, and that useless giant "Angry Birds" plush toy that your brother gave you really ought to go to someone who wants one. Everybody wins!
