The Frozen Oasis
Party Entertainment Planners/Hosts
Frozen Oasis is a group led by Etheras and Soron that holds parties on Friday nights at several conventions around the United States, usually including a dance room with live DJs and a laser light show. In the bar area/party room, frozen golden margaritas and strawberry daiquiris are typically served, however the drinks can and do change to reflect the convention’s theme, as well as non-alcoholic drinks.
The nefarious little white fennec that helped put this convention together, Etheras is a fox driven by pursuit of perfection. This has lead him to question and re-imagine many aspects of what passes for furry cons, and also to drive Soron crazy with nagging demands about every little detail. Etheras (the character) entered the fandom less than a year ago. Before this, Etheras (the person) used the fennec Jaspian as his character. He started the Frozen Oasis Parties alongside Soron in 2006, and since there have been over 25. He is a well-known DJ and music-producer and artist. Etheras is also a proficient fashion and costume designer, and is easily-recognized by his outlandish (and provocative) costumes, that have become a trademark of his at furry cons (Often leaving trails of feathers in his wake).
Soron the Green Archer Panda, AKA: The Booze Bear:
Soron is a giant panda that stands at 6'6" tall and is often seen cloaked in dark green, brown, and black archer's garb from the Renaissance period. His leather armor is embellished with a head of a fennec and has a wolf head on his belt buckle, both tributes to his friends. He totes a green bow and long arrows with green and yellow fletching, leading Soron to also be called "The Green Archer Panda". Soron often tends bar at various room parties including the Frozen Oasis and this has earned him the nickname “The Booze Bear”. This affectionate term was first “coined”, by Soron’s friend Draconis, many years ago.
Ipequey is an inflatable werewolf (read as "harmless") from Austin, TX who has been in the furry fandom since 1996. Ever since his early exposure to the furry community on FurryMuck, he knew he found others that were just like him in more ways than he ever thought would be possible. As a result of the open-arm acceptance from the Furry community, Ip (as he's called by friends) is just as happy to help new furs find their footing both in the fandom and with life.
Eager to give back to the Furry community, you can find him running the Texas Furry Fiesta website & part of the fursuit track, for both TFF and Wild Nights. He also enjoys commissioning art, fursuiting for fun, charity and at furry conventions all over the world. He's also known for keeping the general populous of the fandom intoxicated serving both his home brews and original mixed drinks at conventions. Feel free to introduce yourself to him, he's always up for making new friends.
Outside of furry, you can find him hard at work home brewing beer, listening to all styles of music, hosting bad movie nights and eager to spend time with his friends.
Pacer has been involved in the Furry community since 1998 and has been costuming since then. As the Fursuit Track Lead for Furry Fiesta and Wild Nights, he organizes all the fursuit events for those conventions (with help from some awesome people!). He worked for several years as mascot for a hockey team and also costumed for organizations such as The American Cancer Society, the March of Dimes and Give Kids the World. Pacer has given classes at the Red Cross on how to play their mascot, Ready Dog.
