It wouldn't be a furry con without hordes of costumed characters energizing the hallways!
Having a costume is by no means a requirement to enjoy Megaplex, but you are certainly welcome to wear yours. As with many other conventions, Fursuiting (performing in a fursuit, or a homemade character costume) has become a major part of the fun and atmosphere at Megaplex.
We have a Fursuit Lounge (a.k.a. the Headless Lounge), open to all fursuiters to take a break, cool off and chat with other costumers. The fursuit lounge has cold water, fans, towels, and more to help keep performers comfortable, and a "head tree" to cool and dry your fursuit head. The lounge will be open for the duration of the convention. Hours will be posted with the convention schedule.
We also have a professional photo studio run by Furshoot.com for everybody who'd like to have some high quality pics of their costumes! As with the fursuit lounge, the photo suite is open all weekend long. Hours will be posted with the convention schedule.
Important Tips For Fursuiters
Fursuiting in Orlando in Summer is no sunbath. Be prepared for heat. Drink lots of water and take breaks!
The convention and the hotel take no responsibility for anything left in the fursuit lounge. Never leave any valuables in the lounge.
If you need to change in and out of your underclothes, please use a restroom or a private hotel room. Do not use the fursuit lounge - it is part of a public meeting area.
Your costume must not violate the code of conduct.
With the exception of our traditional Thursday night fursuit-friendly bowling outing, for your own well-being we recommend against going anywhere off the hotel's property in a costume that covers your face, without written permission from the property's owner.
Being in fursuit does not exempt you from any of the policies laid out in our Attendee Code of Conduct. Please be respectful to other attendees and staff while performing.
