Four new "Friends of Anthrocon" were created for Anthrocon 2019 to represent convention partners to attendees and the public! I continued my position as Anthrocon staff for the fourth year in this ongoing project.
It remains important to me that these mascots express a variety of interests, body types, gender expressions, and so on to illustrate the welcome and open nature of the fandom at its best. The project has now also reached a new stage as we've begun to show the world of the characters together interacting - something we intend to keep doing and building on in the future.
Pearl was created to represent this year's charity, PEARL Parrot Rescue. Pearl is a kind-natured caretaker and loves seeing to the welfare of her smaller counterparts. Anthrocon attendees and events raised $46,440 for this charity with their generous contributions.
Pearl went home with PEARL Parrot Rescue after the convention.
