Weirdest Conventions ever!
Earlier today, I was researching on the most popular gaming conventions in the world and I came across several pages basically stating the same names and facts over and over again (yawn). Thankfully, I stumbled upon some of the quirkiest and weirdest conventions ever. Here are my top favorites.
Have you ever felt like a tiger or a rabbit and wished to be in their skin? If yes, you will definitely love this convention! Fur-Con or Furry-Con is a gathering of people who dress up in furry animal costumes and behave like the animal they are representing. Be it a cat, raccoon, bear, wolf, etc., you can be any animal you wish to be. What do you think a rabbit sounds like?
To me, swimming with a tail fin and no feet seems ridiculous. But here people of all ages slip into their tails and meet once a year to swim around in an Olympic-sized pool in Cary, North Carolina for Mer Fest to live their childhood dream. If mermaids aren’t your thing, Pirates are welcome too. Aye, aye!
