Ceil Fox (pronounced Kyle, let’s settle that once and for all!) is an engineer from Rugby, UK.
He spent 16 years working in the entertainment and special effects industry before moving to the Marine industry in 2010. He is best known for building nitrogen and compressed air cannon for firing everything from footballs to cars, his equipment is still used today on film sets and theme parks.
Ceil is the co-chairman of Scotiacon and the engineering lead for ConFuzzled, he is best known in the fandom for producing the now “world renowned” fursuit lounge equipment used by ConFuzzled and Nordic FuzzCon. In particular the ‘Ceil Spec air blades’, powerful enough to give a fursuiter wings.
Ceil will once again provide the entire Main Stage at JFTW (Ceil: except for the lasers, Yag’s lasers are better than mine!) The backdrops and stage wings were fabricated by Ceil back in 2016 and are bespoke for JFTW.
Ceil is a keen fursuiter that will be actively being a nuisance throughout the convention so look out for the tongue blep and the associated large blue fox! All of the big fluffy characters whose ownership he alleges have been seen en masse so they surely cannot be the same person? He is also a keen collector of inflatable items ranging from advertising items from years gone by to large inflatables of his characters in his collection he’s built up over 30 years.
Ceil will be heavily involved in the running of main stage but will host some panels and is very approachable during downtime, especially if presented with a JD & Diet Coke!
