One of the more unique attributes of Fur Reality is our immersive storyline. Those of you who are joining us again are already familiar with how it works, but for those of you who are new to it, here’s a quick run down!
Foxifly is an artist and colorist who also works for Ringtail Cafe productions on the comic book “The Confectionaries” and the upcoming comic “Dust”. She specializes in fantasy art and fantastic beasts, but also does humans, vampires and other such creatures. Her fursona is a fox-moth hybrid.
Samuel Conway is a chemist who holds a PH.D from Dartmouth and works in a laboratory in the research triangle area of North Carolina.
He is also known as “Uncle Kage” the Chariman of Anthrocon, the world’s largest furry convention, held annually in Pittsburgh, PA. To his fans, he is an experienced Raconteur who has performed on stage all around the country and even in such far-flung places as Germany, Australia, England and even the Czech Republic.
He has been called, by some, an unofficial spokesperson for the furry fandom since he has dedicated a good deal of time and energy toward dispelling the myths and misconceptions surrounding the world of anthropomorphics.
Alkali is a black-footed ferret and co-host of both Whose Lion is it Anyway and The Dragget Show (with his mate, Xander the Blue). He is known for his distinctive top hat, his sheer volume and for being the chairman of Fur-Squared.

Last year we set ourselves the task of having an animated intro for our opening ceremonies. This year, we’re doing it again! Our gold level attendees get a ton of awesome swag, but one of the more unique items is an appearance in the opening animation. Since this year’s theme is post apocalyptic, you can expect to see your character in a much beloved wastelander/mad max aesthetic!
Gold Level attendees get the animation appearance in addition to the Silver Level poster cameo! At the silver level, you get to show up in the I-Spy style poster. This year’s *burp* theme is *belch* inspired by dimension-hopping science, broh! Gotta get me some of that szechuan sauce.
We will be announcing a cut-off date soon, so make sure you don’t miss out!
Here’s a sneak peek at last year’s I-Spy
