Furry Weekend Holland 2016

Last weekend I had the pleasure to attend Furry Weekend Holland 2016; a small convention in the lovely Dutch province of Drenthe. After a huge round trip through the Netherlands to pick up supplies, and an Italian dragon (don’t ask) I was finally arrived.

I love to visit conventions that have their own unique thing. Where one has a big fursuit parade, or another might have its sheer size, FWH takes pride in their haute cuisine. And with pride I mean they have something to be proud of! The entire weekend we were delighted by amazing foodstuffs. From delicious hand made teramisu to wraps filled with only the freshest ingredients. I am convinced we all left with at least a few extra pounds.

The fact my sleeping quarters were almost in the kitchen lead to the theory those pesky hyenas were plotting to stuff us meerkats for nefarious intent!

Most of the time I was there, I spent in the ‘basement’ with a bunch of friends. A lot was drawn, and practically the entire weekend we were drawing the silliest of things. It was fun to meet a lot of old friends, and to make new ones!

The general theme of FWH was as Dutch as it can be: Albert Heijn. Including stamp collecting for … yeah for what? Nobody knew! But we did it anyways. While I got 1 whole stamp myself, it was quite fun to see how people were doing everything to get them. Either helping the staff, or going on a treasure hunt through the entire site, since there were quite some stamps hidden!

It has been a day since we left. And I am still feeling bloated. While some might have to recover from those December months. The guests of FWH know better: For them this is the real December.
