Howloween is a Halloween-themed furmeet held in Burnaby, British Columbia (about 9 kilometers east of downtown Vancouver, Canada). There is an associated fursuit-optional bowling event.
Howloween began in 2002 at the home of TJ_Wolf in Burnaby. About 10 people attended the house party, which featured modest events such as pizza and videos.
Howloween 2003 was the first to be held in a formal hotel setting. The event was featured in the CBC television program Culture Shock. Howloween was held at the same hotel in Coquitlam from 2003 to 2006.
In 2004, the meet was extended to two days and moved to the upstairs event area of the hotel. A fursuit of the new mascot - a pink bunny with a hockey mask and chainsaw - was introduced, and the pumpkin carving contest was held for the first time. 2005 introduced the candy table, where furries pooled their money to buy a whole bunch of candy. Attendees who pre-registered this year received a Howloween t-shirt with their membership.
The 14th Howloween
was in 2016, with 319 attending. (more...
Funny Farm is a daily webcomic authored by Ryan Smith (R. Smith) and hosted by Keenspot. The comic details the lives of a group of anthropomorphic animals, who live in a boarding house owned by Ront and Mewn. The author has explained the apparent peculiarity of having humans and anthropomorphic animals coexisting. The main characters are in fact humans just like everyone else. It is merely in the mind of the reader that they appear as animals because this to some extent reflects their personal characteristics.
