Massage Therapist Seeking Some Help

If you have gotten massage at Anthrocon in the past several years, you've likely met Amy Thacker. She and her friend Johnny have been coming to AC to set up for massage therapy for a while now, and she's an amazing massage therapist and good friend of mine. Some of you have experienced her skilled and magical hands, been helped and healed by her knowledge of the body. I wanted to let you know about her upcoming office space in Virginia, and share this in case you can help out!
Please go here and voice your opinion.

The poll is to FC, but if there is enough interest there will be train added for other cons.

Secret Society Badges for Anthrocon!


Secret Society Badges with a twist to their design! Mini charms that you can clip to your main badge. You can use these charms ( with your societies name on them ) to tag and add your friends to your secret society by clipping it to their lanyards ( or wherever they fit nicely ). Highly customizable shapes, these initiation charms can be ordered in 4,6,8, or 10 with your badges. Since these are all hand made, it's the highest number we can offer.

To order in time for the Convention, visit this website link: http://identifur.weebly.com/secret-society-badges-w-charms.html
ANTHROCON 2014 is currently seeking submissions of artwork, stories, photography, poetry, and articles for its conbook!

The Anthrocon conbook offers a fantastic forum for artists and writers to showcase their talents to their peers. To make contributing to the conbook easier, a file-uploading site is available. Anthrocon asks for non-exclusive print rights for submitted works. The artist or author may publish the submitted work in any other fashion; previously, at the same time, and after.

While we welcome any submissions of most any nature, please be aware that priority may be given to those works that complements the theme of the convention, "SECRET SOCIETIES." All submissions should be in the 'G' to 'PG-13' rating.

Deadline for submissions is MAY 3, 2014.

For complete information and details, visit http://www.anthrocon.org/conbook

We look forward to hearing from you!



Happy Wolf Day Fire Wolf66

I would like to wish firewolf66 a happy firey wolf day and I do hope you enjoy your wolf day until you howl yourself into another year older.

Charity Auction/Raffle donations needed!

As you may have heard, Anthrocon's selected charity this year is The National Aviary, the nation's only independent indoor nonprofit zoo dedicated to birds. While cash donations made at the convention are great, the majority of funds are raised via donations of artwork and merchandise to our Charity Auction and Charity Raffle. We're looking for popular items and unique craftwork that will make people say, "I want that!"

While we must distribute items between the Raffle and Auction based on available space, time, and perceived and past value, here are some examples of donations that went big in past years...

Great examples for the raffle: Crafts based on hot trends (Harry Potter handmade house scarves - $57); Large amounts of candy (5lb Hershey bar, 9.25lb Nestle Crunch bar - $70); Art bought at prior convention art shows ("Wrath" art by Terrie Smith - $83); Giant, brand new plush of popular characters (Large "Bolt" plush - $107); Merchandise based on popular fiction (Dr. Who's sonic screwdriver - $158)

Great examples for the auction: Fursuit costumes and commissions (Husky fursuit head - $160); Rare convention memorabilia (Full set of all AC t-shirts since 1997 - $200); Professional sculpture (Dragon statue - $225); Unique opportunities (A speaking part in audio version of Diane Duane's "The Last Meow" - $500); Dorsai fursuit tags (Tag #1000 - $1600)

If you have an item you believe would be appropriate and would like to donate, please contact charity-2014(at)anthrocon.org!

If you ever wanted to appear in a comic book, this is your chance!

I'm raising funds to print Volume Two of Last Res0rt, and I'm offering cameos -- they come with badges to make sure I'm drawing your character right, so it's like a huge multi-part commission of your character(s)!

You can pre-order the books too, but this offer for cameos is only running during the kickstarter -- so check it out today!
