Rules

The Furlandia Fursuit Dance Competition will have two categories:

  • Full Suit: Contestant's fursuit must cover the entire body, with no skin showing.
  • Partial Suit: Contestant's fursuit must cover the head and hands. The remaining parts of the body must be covered with fursuit parts or articles of clothing. Arms and legs may be covered with either clothing or fursuit arms/legs. If the fursuit covers the entire body, the contestant will be considered a Full Suit contestant.

Each category will have up to ten contestants, for a total maximum of twenty contestants. Submissions into the Dance Competition will be open soon. If positions are still available at the start of Furlandia, contestants may sign up for the remaining positions at Registration.
