With the convention now looming on the horizon, it’s time for us busy workers of the Commerce department to start highlighting some of the fantastic creative types you’ll be able to buy from in our lovely Dealers Den!
The Dealers den is an important part of the convention, and allows you a fantastic opportunity to buy gifts for yourself and others. Whether it’s purchasing furry art, getting a commission or two of your character / persona, or snapping up some ConFuzzled memorabilia, the Den is the place to go for all your shopping needs!
The best news is that with our new venue offering us more space, we’ve got even MORE dealers in the den this year, and that means that even if you’ve been coming to ConFuzzled since the beginning, there are bound to be some new dealers that you’ve not seen in the den before!
This year we’ve asked our Dealers to write their own promotional material for us to include, so in most cases what you see below are their own words on what you can find on their tables this year.
This time around we’re highlighting our Guest of Honour, FunLaser, FarukuCostumes, and SpiritRaptor! Also, don’t forget to read about our Sponsors-only early opening AND the ConFuzzled SALE!!
Our guest of honour is of course the talented Colson - singer, pianist, musical performer, we’re sure he’ll keep you entertained. From our website:
Don’t be alarmed if you find yourself tapping your feet and swaying when the rock and pop themes begin to play from Colson’s guitar, keyboard or voice as this talented performer has two albums to his name, he’s performed live at Feral! 2010 and Midwest FurFest 2011, and his videos have had over a million views on YouTube.
Expect to see and hear him at the many musical events we’ll be running this year including the Music Jam and our other musical workshops.
You’ll also see more of him in the Den, where he’ll be joined by Fox Amoore who works closely with Colson producing backing music for his songs and other musical work. If you’d like to take Colson’s sound home with you (and why wouldn’t you?), then head over to their table armed with cash!
