As a general guideline, attendees must be clothed and behave in such a manner that sufficiently complies with applicable laws, and does not bring the convention or venue into disrepute.
Furnal Equinox requests that attendees be discreet with their apparel (fursuits, collars, ears, harnesses, etc) outside of convention hours and in any hotel common spaces.
While these guidelines aim to be comprehensive they are not exhaustive and are subject to change.
Required At All Times
- Attendees must maintain a minimum level of body coverage (t-shirt and shorts, or equivalent);
- Any clothing and/or accessories that overly accentuate, deliberately draw attention to or reveal genitalia;
- Any items that will unduly compromise the mobility or safety of yourself or others such as;
- ‘In use’ restraints (the wearer is bound or restrained)
- Chains (this includes Choke Chains)
- Anything that can restrict breathing (e.g. gags)
- Locks which inhibit normal movement or easy removal of items in the event of an emergency.
Any logos, symbols, flags, or imagery of any kind that is, or appears to be, intended to provoke or spread hate;
- Any apparel that resembles or gives the appearance of military or law enforcement;
- Any culturally appropriated attire, props, fursuits or badges, including but not limited to those that depict racial stereotypes.
From 9pm until the con space closes, guidelines relax a little to allow the following alternative apparel to be worn in convention space.
- Bodysuits (Non-fursuit such as spandex/rubber, and must be opaque)
The following attire is considered appropriate at all hours of the convention:
- Nylon ‘dogsled style’ harnesses
- Cuffs (cannot be used to bind a person)
- Leashes (must be unsecured or held by the wearer only; cannot be dragging on the ground)
- Spandex Costumes (e.g. Spiderman/Deadpool)
- Pup/Pony hoods
