Since 2002, Florida’s furry arts and entertainment convention has brought interactive fun and performance to Central and North Florida. The latest edition of the convention, Megaplex XII: Rocking at the Hop, was held on July 26-28, 2013, at the Orlando Airport Marriott, Orlando, Florida.
Megaplex’s mission is to “provide for our membership a celebration of interactive arts and performance, with a primary focus on anthropomorphics and fantasy.” Megaplex’s programming focuses on a variety of arts and performances, from fursuiting, costuming and puppetry, to improvisational art and music. The convention has featured live concerts from professional a cappella groups Toxic Audio and 4:2:Five, musicals “Julie Bunny Must Die!” and “Fosgate: Ferret Loan Officer” by Ned Wilkinson, and more.
The wide range of events at Megaplex traditionally includes performances by the Funday PawPet Show, Uncle Kage’s Story Hour, Mascot Games, improv games, karaoke, stand-up comedy, dances with live DJs, and various panels hosted by our attendees. We hope you will be able to join us this year to check out the excitement!
The convention also offers a Dealers Room and Artist Alley, a game room, and amenities for costumers including a “headless” lounge and photo shoot.
Each year Megaplex raises money to benefit the C.A.R.E. Foundation, whose speakers talk about the local wildlife and abused pets they help rescue, and they usually bring along a few of their animal friends.
We want your feedback on exactly what you want to see at the convention, and we want hear from folks who would like to run said panels and events. Megaplex is ultimately the members’ convention, so help make it the best it can be!
