The first Little Island Furcon of 2022 took place May 21, 2022. The online convention programming was hosted over Discord and Twitch and included a Dealer’s Den, panels, VRChat, online multiplayer games, competitions, and mukbang. The theme was Techwear x Urbex. During closing ceremonies, it was announced 300 attendees had participated.
A second online convention was held on December 3, 2022, with the theme of Victorian Murder Mystery. LIFCO created an ARG to fit the theme and build hype for the con, with players deciphering clues hidden on LIFC's website social media posts, and Discord to uncover the identity of the titular murderer. Programming and events were similar to the previous online iteration. There were 220 attendees. At closing ceremonies, it was announced that LIFC plans to hold two annual events, a physical convention in the middle of the year and an online convention in November or December.
Little Island Furcon 2023 was held physically on June 10-11, 2023 at the Resorts World Sentosa Convention Center in Sentosa, Singapore and was themed ‘Swords and Sorcery’ with a bunch of activities as well as a room where furries can hang out, known as the zoo. The guest-of-honour for the 2023 convention was Daza, a fursuit maker based in Indonesia. She appeared at the Dealers Den and the GOH Fireside Talk Panel in the convention.
In the closing ceremony, LIFC Chairman, Scalarius announced that he would be stepping down as Chairman and handing over to Decro to manage the future LIFC conventions.
