The Lost and Found List From Furry Weekend Atlanta 2010.

The 2010 Furry Weekend was held at the Hilton in Atlanta. (Much to the surprise, I imagine, of the guests who just happened to book a stay there that weekend). There was a full schedule of activities including classes on fursuit construction, a panel on "Why Anthromorphics?" and, oddly, "DJing 101." There were also sessions of the card game Furoticon, which combines D&D with furry fandom, thus making it the nerdiest game of all time. 

Now, I am down with whatever people want to do sexually.  It's all good, really.  And I'm not trying to judge, even thought one could argue that I totally am judging. But I love exploring fetishes that seem super foreign to me.
This particular fetish is fascinating to me because I so don't get it. Fursuits, to me, are the antithesis of sexy. I mean, the big, goofy cartoon heads, the googley eyes--and surely those suits must smell horrendous. But again that's just me. If the idea of wearing a sexy squirrel costume makes you hot, go to it, man.

And, by the way, if you happened to be at Furry Weekend Atlanta and left something behind, please check this (actual) list from the Lost and Found which includes:
--one white cat tail
--a fursuit eye
--a hacky sack
--a rat
--matted fur
--a bag of knobs

Meanwhile, I will remain fixated on the perplexing questions this list brings up, including:  WTF?...a bag of knobs? Exactly how minuscule is the sub-culture of furries who also play hacky sack? How much matted fur was there to qualify as a "lost and found item" rather than "something to sweep up"?


note: revised in 2016 in attempt to not write such heteronormative CIS BS.  Perhaps successfully, perhaps not.

Egads, lady, they MUST allow alcohol. How else would the less attractive furries find someone to go home with them at the end of the night?

I saw a CSI episode with Furries and found it pretty disturbing. There was a cat fursuit wearing sexy underwear, just seems very wrong to me. But hey if that's what does it for you.

Right!--"Oh, man, I was soooo drunk last night. I woke up with this totally ugly mangy squirrel. But last night, that squirrel seemed smokin' hot!"

Yeah, definitely weird. But then again, imagine what one could do with Mr. Snuffleupagus' trunk! No wonder it was only Big Bird who could see him. That dirty little birdie!!

so, this may I'm having lunch alone in the peachtree center chic fil a, and I see this fox walk by,, then the big bad wolff, then a baby doll punk chick with a long cut tail. I watch csi reruns so I was immediately hip to the haps I found myself smack in the middle of.
Best people watching lunch ever... Besides Dragon Con, because that shit is the ultimate bomb!

Holy hole in a donut...a few weeks ago i was watching a documentary about 'plushies' and that is a whole new kettle of fish...they are kinda realted to furries in the sense that they like having sex with stuffed lock up that teddy bear people...
