This weekend, I was at Further Confusion 2013 — a furry convention. What was I doing there? Covering the event for Kotaku, of course!

I’m currently working on my report of the event, but for now, here’s a teaser of some of what I saw this weekend. Up above are a couple of fursuiters on the dance floor. Imagine there’s dubstep on the background, if you want.

If nothing else, I can confirm right now: furries know how to throw a damned party and the event was certainly… an experience. Yeah, let’s go with that.


  • Hints about an article you haven’t finished writing yet apparently now count as an article.

    Quick someone tell Luke and Bashcraft.

  • I think Kotaku is now deliberately trying to lose its readers. That’s the only logical explanation for Patricia Hernandez’s presence here.

    I wonder if even 1% of Kotaku readers are furries?

    I’d be very surprised if more than 10% of Kotaku readers were LGBT, which is another topic we get a LOT of articles about here.

    One thing that successful magazines all had in common was that they knew their audiences. Playboy might run a furry article, but you could guarantee it would come with sexy photos of hot female furries who were mostly out of their costumes. That way the article could still appeal to the 99% of Playboy readers who were NOT furries… Can you imagine Sports Illustrated running an article on furries? Unless they had discovered a bunch of pro athletes were furries, none of their readers would care, and more than a few would consider finding a new magazine to read.

    Time for a mass exodus from Kotaku, readers? Surely there must be better options out there.
