(Press Release) This is not your typical convention. FurryPinas 2018 is something that is unique and something that you should make sure that you attend. The event which is a celebration of everything Furry in fandom, hobby and pop culture is happening on May 19-20 at the SMX Convention Center in Mall of Asia, Pasay City.
We would like to give you a brief FurryPinas 2018 walkthrough so that you will know what to expect. Remember that this event is the first in South East Asia and the biggest in the Philippines.
Ever wonder what the furry hobby is? Furries, in brief, are any animal characters which have been given a human-like personality. The hobby can be in the form of arts, literature, games, shows, toys, and many more. It is not a dog show nor is it a scientific convention but in fact a pop culture convention for the love of furries.
The Great Furry Cosplay Contest. This is the first time in the Philippines that a cosplay competition is focusing on characters which are furries. 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 Dragon Ball, Kurama from Naruto or even one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Special Guests. Catch some of cool guests like Bapogichi from Buhay Kolehiyo and Pocari Roo, an Australian furry fan and full-time YouTuber with over 100 videos on her channel and over 50,000 subscribers
