NordicFuzzCon (abbreviated NFC) is an annual furry convention that takes place in Sweden.[1] Its first iteration was in 2013. It is the largest Scandinavian furry convention and the third-largest in Europe, with 1,149 attendees in 2019;[2] roughly a quarter were Swedish, while another half hailed from Germany, Norway, the UK, Finland, and the Netherlands.[3]

Mausie & Iris[edit]

NordicFuzzCon's mascot is a lovable "raus" (combination of mouse and rat) known as Mausie.[4] Mausie has grayish fur, brown eyes, and has a blue bow tied to his tail. Mausie premièred as a fursuit during the opening ceremony of NordicFuzzCon 2015.[5]

At the NordicFuzzCon 2019 opening ceremony, Iris was introduced to share mascot duties with her cousin, Mausie.[6] Like her cousin, she is also a raus. Iris has brown and beige fur, blue eyes, and has a baby blue bow tied to her tail.

Pictures, reference sheets, and more information about the convention's mascots can be found on the NordicFuzzCon website.

Fursuits - Gotta Catch 'Em All[edit]

In 2017, NordicFuzzCon had Japan as the theme and introduced a game called Fursuits - Gotta Catch 'Em All. The way the game works is that each participating fursuiter gets a code written on their fursuit badge, and all attendees can enter that code into the NordicFuzzCon phone app or website to "capture" the fursuiter. When signing up as a hunter, attendees also chose a team to join. The game features lists of the most active hunters, most caught fursuiters, and the team with the most amount of points.

Conventions[edit]

As of 2021, eight instances of the convention have taken place, plus one online convention. A ninth is announced for 2022.
