It was wonderful to produce this and seeing so many furries come together and learn the moves, was very moving for me. Such an unexpected turn out.
Thank you again to Revit for filming and editing and everyone that made this possible.

*Snugs!*

I had amazing time at Midwest FurFest and I look forward to next year!

As several others have done in the past week, I have uploaded my (mostly-fursuit) photos to the Midwest Furfest Flickr group. Check them out if you'd like!

ALL 321: Full set
MY FAVORITE 45: Best-of set 

I mentioned it on the set pages, but if you are in a photo, please feel free to save and repost it to your gallery of choice; please link back to the original or my FA (wolfwithdances). You can also send me a note/comment/shout if you do repost--I love it when I can capture someone in a photo they like!

Cheers everyone, and hope to see you next year!

That's a wrap!

We want to thank everyone for an amazing convention! Midwest FurFest 2012 is over, and we hope that you had as much fun attending it as we did making it happen.

3,216 furry folks joined us over the course of the weekend, officially making Midwest FurFest the second-largest furry convention in the world (for now, anyway)! We would like to extend special thanks to our 196 Sponsors and 61 Shiny Sponsors whose generous support continues to make Midwest FurFest possible.

We were glad to make this an incredible year for our charity, Felines & Canines, Inc. They received a total of $8,500 including cash and checks in their donation jars (including $1,000 from a single donor!), the Charity Auction, and 2 & Kage's Saturday Performance. An additional $1,950 was raised by the Charity Auction and Charity Poker Tournament. To this, Midwest FurFest was pleased to add an additional donation of $30,000, meaning that Felines & Canines took home a little over $40,500!

This is also notable because, with this donation, the sum of donations to charities by all furry conventions since 1997 has exceeded ONE MILLION DOLLARS!

Do you have feedback about Midwest FurFest 2012? Drop us a line at info@furfest.org. Also, please be sure to visit our Forums and talk about your experiences. Don't forget that you can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook as well!

And now we're going to take a break to rest and recuperate. We'll see you again in 2013 when we can start telling you about Midwest FurFest 2013: The Pirates of Lake Michigan!

Midwest FurFest and the staff of the Art Show would like to thank all of the artists who displayed their work with us and all of the attendees who bid on the art in the show. And a special thanks goes out to those of you who took the time to vote on your favorite art piece. The Art Show Award winners this year are:

Amber Hill/Vantid - Her piece "Sea Wolves" won the "Best In Show" award chosen by you guys, the attendees.
Our Guest of Honor, Jennifer Miller/Nambroth won the "Artists' Choice" award (which was voted on by the artists themselves) with the piece "A Special Kind of Blue".
Kellic Lamphere/Plaguedog's piece "Silver Fox" won the "Chairman's Choice" award.
And Jeff Beedon /D.Bruin won the "Director's Choice" award for his charcoal "Lion Portrait".

All 4 award winners received a plaque for their accomplishment and will also have a rollover basic membership for Midwest FurFest 2013!

In addition, the Art Show Staff also awarded ribbons for "Staff Picks" -- each staff member chose one piece that they felt deserved some special recognition. The winners of the "Staff Picks" were:
Amber Hill/Vantid
Chris Dame
Stephanie Lynn
Ruben Avila
Sandra SanTara
Sarah Clemens
Foxfeather Zenkova
and Rebecca Frey/BushyCat

Congratulations to all of the winners, and thanks once again to all of the artists!

Really?

I really hope my friend's reports from the con are not accurate. Did somebody really pee off a balcony? Are people really leaving USED condoms just laying around the elevators? I didn't get to go this year due to lack of money, and it's sounding like it's a very good thing. Have furries really become such pigs that they would do these kinds of things? I really hope con and hotel staff are doing something about all this. The people doing these things need to not be allowed back to MFF for some time, if ever. That's just sick.
