What to expect at FurryPinas 2018?
Ever wonder what a Furry is and what is a Furry Hobby? Furry, in brief, are any animal characters which have been given a human-like personality. It is not a dog show, nor is it a scientific convention but in fact a pop culture convention for the love of furries.
Great Furry Cosplay Contest. This is the first time in the Philippines that a cosplay competition is focusing on characters which are anthropomorphic. What’s even unique is that they give additional points to creativity and unique depictions of said characters, like neko-ified or mecha versions. You can come-in as Beerus from Dragonball, Kurama from Naruto or even one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turles.
Special Guests. Catch some of the cool guests like Bagophochi from Buhal Kolehiyo and Pocari Roo, an Australian furry fan and full-time YouTuber with over 100 videos on her channel and over 50,000 subscribers
Furade. Suit up in your Fursuit and join the first ever Parade of Furries in the Philippines. Get to be with other fursuiters and let others know how fun it is to be one.
Great Finds. We have tons of booths to cater to the hobby. These include merchandise booths and even indie booths. If you are looking for hard to find or personalized items then you might just get it here.
