Fursuit Hugging Booth

Need a hug?

Returning again this year, our Championship Booth outside of the Dealers Den on the 4th Floor will become our very own unique venture: The Fursuit Hugging Booth! This is a chance for some of our fantastically fuzzy friends to show just how huggable they are and help raise money for Leech Lake Legacy, our Charity for this year.

So come on by and get a hug on Friday from 2pm to 3:30pm, Saturday from 11:30am to 1pm or on Sunday from Noon to 1:30pm. And don’t forget to vote for the most huggable fursuiter by donating to the Charity at the booth after you’ve gotten your hug. We’ll have awards and prizes for the fursuiters that manage to raise the most money during their time in the booth!

Want to give hugs?

Did you hear that, my fine fursuiting friends? Awards and prizes to the most huggable fursuiters at our booth this year! You’ll get 15 minutes in the booth to show off your hugging prowess and raise money for our charity. A sign-up sheet for time slots will be in the Fursuit Lounge on the 4th floor.

Rules for those fursuiters wishing to participate:

  1. Fursuiters participating must be attendees over the age of 18 only please.
  2. Soft hugs only please!
  3. You are participating in this activity at your own risk. While we encourage all attendees to wash their paws and will provide sanitizing hand wipes at the booth, the convention is not responsible for any damage your costume might sustain.
  4. In order to provide the best experience for all involved, we request that fursuiters giving hugs have a costume that completely covers their body.
  5. While you are allowed to request (or indicate) that a donation be made, it is not required for those wanting a hug.
  6. This event is intended for fun and to help raise a little extra money for our Charity, silliness is encouraged, but please keep your antics within the confines of the booth.
  7. This is an all ages attraction, so be prepared for kids of all ages.
  8. While we are a very friendly event, please do not hug people until they have approached and indicated it’s OK.
