Hyena Agenda

Creator Guest of Honor

I'm Frau Lion and the owner and creator of Hyena Agenda.

Hyena Agenda was founded in 2013 as an artist-owned apparel brand with a goal to of creating fun designs that let people express themselves. Animals, pop culture, and a love for design has inspired our lines of furry-friendly styles recognizable by bold and oversized prints.

I dove into the world of apparel and art because it's something I enjoy doing. At the end of the day, I'm happy creating things that give other people joy. The highlights of my artistic career are the connections people form through Hyena Agenda apparel; it's not uncommon to hear from my patrons how their shirt, stickers, or pins were recognized by people they wouldn't have expected! The fact that others have formed friendships and bonds through something as simple as a graphic on a shirt drives me to keep creating and bringing people with shared interests together.

Alkali Bismuth

Performer Guest of Honor

It was a bright cold day in April, & the clocks were striking thirteen. Laughably, a ferret had been made a guest at Megaplex; they stocked up on libations for the thirsty mustelid. Indeed you heard right, the top hat wearing giant of a ferret has been invited to the very con you are attending! Knowing the convention had asked Alkali to write something about himself, the ferret got to work. Easygoing as he was, Alkali jumped at the chance to put his pen to paper. The sounds of frantic scribbling could be heard as he wrote facts on his very being. "Excellent cook, improve comic, kind of gay, HUGE fan of D&D and LARPing. "Quaint, kind, tall and loud” finished his description that all attendees would see. Unabashed by his description the ferret sat back in his chair, elated to be finished with the arduous task of describing himself. I know what you are asking, "why would Alkali write the story of him writing his entry rather than writing the entry himself"? Lament not my friends, for a true description of Alkali lies in one simple step. All one must do is read the first letter of every sentence.
