Furries gather in Botanic Gardens

Another article in Bundaberg's NewsMail, dated August 13. It's a brief follow-up to Thursday's article about a furmeet organised by the BundyFur group.

IF YOU went down to the Botanic Gardens yesterday you would have got a big surprise.

It was picnic time for Bundaberg's "Furries" - a group of people who enjoy dressing up in animal costumes.

Spokesman Hayden Grant, aka Bingo Fox, said the event even attracted people from Brisbane.

"We also had five new people from Bundaberg come along," he said.

He said the Furries planned to make it a much bigger event next year.

Twenty most expressionless Furry costumes at Rocky Mountain Fur Con

More than 800 people -- most of them dressed in costumes or not adverse to snuggling up to one -- flocked to the DoubleTree Hotel this weekend for Rocky Mountain Fur Con 2012: Furry Apocalypse, an unabashed annual celebration of Furry fandom. But while the anthropomorphic lifestyle offers a lot of costume options for those who are so inclined, it doesn't offer a lot of facial expressions. Photographer Jim Wills stopped by this weekend to capture attendees in various states of joy, anger, sorrow and elation -- none of which you can tell from these photos. Click through for our rundown of the twenty most fixed Furry gazes.
