Furry BlackLight (previously Fursuit BlackLight) is a French furry convention which takes place near Paris.

Both English and French are spoken at the convention, which features such activities as a Dealers Den, fursuit games, and several lounges for fursuits, artists and gamers. Since 2017, attendees can also win a partial fursuit made by Brek Wolf.

History[edit]

The "FursuitBlackLight" was created by Furnace as a day of activities and to welcome Hai, visiting France. The success of this event led it to become a convention and is now called "FurryBlackLight" to encourage everyone to spend time together, even without fursuit.

The first FBL was a one-day Laser Quest and indoor Mini-Golf fursuit event that took place on January 19th at the Universal Circuit[1]. A total of 17 people took part in honor of Hai, a German fur. [2]

2014[edit]

In 2014, the FBL took place twice:

The second edition was at the Universal Circuit of Maurepas on January 19th in an event titled "Revenge", with 27 people attending.[3]

FBL 3 was extended to a two-day event, dates have been changed to coincide with Halloween weekend and All Saints (1-2 November) and it was the first edition to take place in a hotel, the Hotel Premiere Classe.[4] The theme was "Level 3". It had a total of 34 registered attendees, including 14 fursuiters.

2015[edit]

FBL 4 took place on October 31 - November 1[5], and had 66 registered attendees including 28 fursuiters. The theme was "4 Play" and added bowling and video game activities.

2016[edit]

FBL 5 was extended to a three-days event (October 29-31), as was the first to have a dance night.[6] A total of 89 attendees had registered with 41 Fursuiters.[7] The convention was titled: "Give Me Five!".

2017[edit]

FBL 6 (October 27-29[8]) was the first to take place at the Mercure hotel in Maurepas, as well as the first to include a Fursuit Lounge, managed by Orthank and several other rooms directly into the hotel, including a Main Stage.

2018[edit]

This year, to encourage non-fursuit participants to join the convention, the name is changed to "Furry BlackLight"[9]. The event was also extended to a four-days event and took place on November 1-4, 2018[10], in the Mercure Hotel in Maurepas. A special menu was organized with the hotel, and was a great success, which provoked long waits in the dining room, because the hotel teams did not expect it.

A total of 317 attendees registered from 9 different countries, including 129 fursuiters and 55 artists.
