Furnal Equinox summons the 'Wild Magic'
Over 450 registered in the course of three days, and 110 participated in the fursuit parade.
The charity auction raised CA$4,000 for the Mississauga Humane Society, with a commission from South African Guest of Honour ZEN selling for $450. Fellow Canadian Guest of Honour FirestormSix provided fursuit photography and hosted a panel on fursuit care.
The convention enjoyed significant growth in other ways, too — a move to a new wing of the hotel resulted in a larger Dealers Den, the addition of an Artists Alley, and a Zoo space well used for gaming and social time among attendees.
The Games Room was a common haunt with the addition of a vintage Williams pinball table. This year also marked the debut of the "Wolf's Den" for sponsors; a con suite on the 11th floor of the Doubletree that was also used for receptions by other conventions.
