Califur 2015 was full of new beginnings for the Lemonbrat team! For the first time, we unveiled con-exclusive items; two kigurumi fitting the kemono theme for that year. Our “Kawaiizilla” and “Maneki Neko” kigus were a bit hit online, and the Kawaiizilla was given a great home to our Hyena Agenda friends before the dealer’s room even opened Friday morning! Thanks guys! <3
We also picked up a few cute goodies from our new friends Kilcodo and Onelani! Kilcodo had adorable fursuit prop doughnuts on her table this year, as well as these little batties! We couldn’t resist. And we had been after a plush from Onelani for some time, and finally got one! An adorable manatee, straight from the sea.
Another kickoff for us was the start of our premade fursuit partials! We created 2 fursuit heads, with paws and tails to sell at Califur. To our surprise, they also sold before the dealer’s room opened! The couple who purchased them were so excited to put them on, and immediately commissioned art of their new characters, Viral and Hana! <3 We had a small photo-shoot later that day with them and got some great pics!

It’s sad that the convention will no longer be held at the beautiful Irvine Marriott, but there’s an excitement in our team to see the location for next year. Goodbye, yummy melon-infused water!
I don’t even know where to start with the Godtier Hoodie. This gorgeous design has so many details, it’s hard to decide what to focus on! The ear has a tufted inner rim which matches the custom striping around the torso. The tail is extra long so that it can wrap around the front of the hoodie. The hood is also two-toned with a big ruffly mane that extends down to the shoulders. We had so much fun making this one!

Convention season is well underway and we’ve been super busy at the Lemonbrat Studio. Between packing up for shows and finally finishing up our spring cleaning we’ve barely had time to take a breath! Luckily, we’ve slowed down just enough for me to reach out to all you wonderful followers and give you an update on what sort of mischief we’ll be getting up to in July.
First up on our list is Anthrocon in Pittsburgh, PA, July 3rd-6th. This is the biggest fur show of the year and we’re sending Barb and Mike undercover to see what sort of mysteries they can uncover about this year’s theme – Secret Societies. We’re expecting a lot of cryptic handshakes and passwords from everyone who comes by the booth to check out our animal hoodies, tail & ear sets and more. Make sure to announce “The Husky Howls for Cheeseburgers” if you’re interested in getting a custom item based off your own character or fursona!

While Barb and Mike engage in covert ops (which sounds hecka-cool), Matt and Ryan will be representing some hometown pride at Anime Midwest in Rosemont, IL, July 4th-6th. Since 2011, Anime Midwest has been growing and we’re always happy to support another great con in our own backyward! Get your adorable on with all our greatest hits – animal hoodies, tails & ears, rave gear and more!

Wrapping up the month of July is an old favorite of ours, Anime Iowa in Coralville, IA, July 25th-27th! We’ve been going to this radtacular gathering for over 3 years now and we’re chomping at the bit to head out and see all you Hawkeye State natives again! Matt and Ryan will be teaming up to take on this show and you better believe they’re bringing a torrential downpour of cuteness that you are not prepaed for!
