Fursuiter & Fursuit Walk Code of Conduct

For All Fursuit Walk Participants

While taking part, you are in public even more than at the venue. You are de-facto ambassadors for LondonFurs, the public face of the community. You actions and conduct on a fursuit walk is even more important than your conduct in the venue.

Fursuiters

  • LondonFurs fursuiting events are strictly family friendly – the walk route goes through one of London's busiest areas where you can expect to interact with people of all age groups. Please make sure your suit is family friendly.
  • In keeping with the above point, no overt bondage equipment is to be worn or used by fursuiters in either the venue or on a walk – collars and leashes are acceptable but anything more extreme is not.
  • Please make sure you, and your suit, are clean. Fursuiting is a sweaty business, so please take appropriate precautions to keep your suit, and yourself, presentable.
  • The organisers will announce on the day when a fursuit walk will be commencing. It is the responsibility of you as a fursuiter to ensure you are suited in time.
  • You are responsible for your own comfort and safety. If you need water on the walk, a handler, etc then please take steps to arrange this. This is not the duty of LondonFurs Staff nor any attendees.

Non-Fursuiters on Fursuit Walk

  • Be aware you’re walking with people with limited senses when in suit. Be considerate.
  • You are even more public than the fursuiters. The public will always remember the funny side of animal costumes but they won’t when it comes to large groups of loud people.
  • Keep the running about, screaming, shouting, swearing and general rowdy behaviour to a minimum. You’re not a football crowd.

Artist and Artists' Corner

  • All artwork of an adult nature must be kept in an opaque folder and not displayed openly at LondonFurs events.
  • Event attendees can be under the age of 18 and should not be viewing this material, as well as others – including non-furry bar staff – who do not wish to see this material.
  • This is by no means a ban on people bringing adult art, just a ban on its public display. However, please refrain from drawing anything in public which falls into the predefined adult bracket.

Please contact the LondonFurs staff if you require clarification on any of the above.

TL;DR

  • Please behave responsibly.
  • Use common sense.
  • Have fun!
