FFFF

FFFF 2012 -- Tournament Finals

Nearly 5 months of a combined showcase and voting bracket, with 381 matchups and nearly 70K in total votes, and we have our two final fursuits.

It's been a long ride, as it always is, but it's finally here. Both finalists are cute veterans of the tournament, but only one can join the likes of Frazzle, Jäger and Yippee Coyote, Flux, and Bucktown Tiger. And while the decision for this year's Derpiest Husky FFFF Champion rests in you hands, dear voters, don't forget that our other pair of Semifinalists have their own faceoff to determine the dance-off tiebreaker Third Place.

For the final time of this event: good luck to everyone, make sure to play nice, and have fun!
