Anthrocon 2017, June 29-July 2, five new character standees joined the "Friends of Anthrocon" to represent convention partners to attendees and the public! I continued my position as Anthrocon staff in this second stage of the project.
It was important to me that each mascot expressed different interests, body type, gender expression, and so on to illustrate the welcome and open nature of the fandom at its best, so you may notice this reflected in the characters!
The Homewood hotel actually had an existing mascot character they wanted us to use, so we adapted Lewis here to the standee format! How does he play the trombone with a beak? He's very talented.
