Infurnity is a Taiwanese furry convention founded and hosted by several passionate animal / furry / fursuit enthusiasts. A furry convention is different from a doujinshi convention or an anime convention – it holds over the weekend, it combines with hotel accommodations, and it heartwarmingly welcomes one third of attendees coming from over 10 different countries all over the world. Furries from any country could share their fluffy interest through furry creation exchange, panel talks, interactive games, fundraising charities, and more to explore.
The term Infurnity came from "infinity", as we hope with our effort in hosting the event, it will help the furry culture grow and extend to infinity in Taiwan. We also hope furry fans of all types (and species!) could enjoy the exciting convention even more in the coming years, through us inviting more diverse activities!
Furry is more of an umbrella term. It can refer to those who shows their love and interest on real animals, or anthropomorphic animal characters from cartoons or animations. It can refer to those who enjoys dressing up and performing in big fuzzy animal costumes called "Fursuits". It can refer to those who lives a lifestyle that blends in animal traits and behaviors. They all fall into the definition of furry fans, or "Furry" for short.
Furry can also be used as an adjective. It relates to artworks and creations of anthropomorphic animals that are made by "Furries". Such as furry artworks and furry conventions.
The community that consist of furry fans and furry creations is called "Furry Fandom". Furries in the furry fandom celebrates their love of anthropomorphic animals through furry forums, furry websites, furmeets, and furry conventions.
