MixedCandy, Arend lead Fracas picks

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

Jäger won last year's Fracas

Nominations for the Fandom's Favorite Fursuit Fracas have closed, with 326 fursuit characters proposed for the 2009 event - an 11% increase over 2008.[1] Voting for the knockout tournament will begin once all nominees have been contacted for their permission.[2]

Last year's event ended with a landslide victory by Nevermint's Jäger from One Fur All Studios, who attracted 319 votes in the last round to Greifer's 195 (Tilt Longtail/Jax). In 2007 — the first year in which the tournament was held — Frazzle (Rose Quoll/self-made) beat Sophie Cabra (MixedCandy) in a close 135-122 final.

Many now turn to full-time costume makers for their suits, with professional mascot builders MixedCandy and Arend Studios each responsible for twice the entries of any other individual builder.[3] Still, the top five account for less than 40% of the total, and just over half the nominees were created by builders outside the top ten.

  1. MixedCandy - 41 (12.93%)
  2. Arend Studios - 34 (10.73%)
  3. Furr Happens - 16 (5.05%)
  4. B3Mascots - 14 (4.42%)
  5. One Fur All - 14 (4.42%)
