Welcome to auditions for AnthroNW’s very first Showcase! If you’ve got a special talent that you’d like to have the chance to show off at tomorrow’s Showcase, this event is a must!

Maybe you’d like to give a damatic reading? Or show us some magic tricks? Or perhaps you’re just really talented on the Ukelele? 

We’d love to see as many of you as possible take part in the showcase — and you don’t need to be in a fursuit to join in!

PLEASE NOTE: If you wish to perform in tomrrow’s showcase, you MUST attend this session unless you have already arranged special dispensation (and auditioned at an earlier time) with Queenie.

Additionally, in order for your act to be considered, it must adhere to the SFW rules of the convention. Acts with NSFW content will not be allowed to perform.

 if your act includes backing music, please bring it with you in MP3 or WAV format on a memory stick clearly labeled! If you have any special requests (like bringing an instrument which requires amplification) please get in touch with Queenie directly at queenie.deerheart@gmail.com

This live model session offers costumed character performer models to draw. Open to artists of all skill levels who just want the life drawing opportunity. The focus is on observation, experimentation, proportional representation, and accurate readings of light and dark. Come on by and use your own techniques. We offer feedback if you want during the hour. Bring your own paper and art supplies!
