Zipper is a long-time fur and truly aspiring fursuit maker.  He has been collecting fursuits for some time and in the last couple of years has been trying his hand at making them.  Teaming up with our first year Guest of Honor, Thorgi, to create there very own company FurryTAWZ, have fulfilled a life-long dream.



For over 10 years, the members of the International Anthropomorphic Research Project have been learning about the furry fandom through research, surveys, and experiments. They launched Furscience to share that research with the furry and non-furry world, a positive and fact-based voice that’s not only shaken up a lot of the stereotypes about furries, but helped us learn about ourselves!

Dr. Sharon Roberts and Dr. Courtney “Nuka” Plante will be joining us at ACFI 2020 to share their findings, and maybe play a few rounds of werewolf!
