I didn't buy much at the con. I picked up a copy of the latest "Suburban Jungle" book since my cameo appearance was in it. I picked up a few items in the charity auction which I will give away as gifts. I didn't buy a single piece of artwork nor spend more than a couple of minutes in Artist Alley. I just wasn't in the mood at this con. I hardly went out to eat. The only restaurant I visited was the one in the hotel, the aforementioned Catfish Shack and Rallyburger. That's it.
I fursuited for 5 hours on Friday. That was fun. I nearly killed a couple of people in the musical chairs segment of the fursuit games. I sucked much ass in the hoola hoop pass, but I had a mean serve in fursuit volleyball. I had a part in sonicblu's Masquerade skit. I wore my spandex skunksuit for that. I was a bit self-conscious about doing that since I wasn't sure how a slinkysuit would be on stage. Sonic needed a skunk, however, and so I helped him out. It went over pretty good.
My room parties were pretty lackluster. I still had a case of bitch-beer leftover by Monday. I guess most people preferred the hard stuff that Meras had bought. It was fun to have the (in)famous Fredryk Phox stop by for a drink. I'm not quite sure if he was on anything else *lol*. The Sunday party pretty much moved over to Meras' other room. It was really quite dead all over the hotel by midnight.
So....all-in-all, it was nice to see members of my furry family again, but there were times that I just felt alone and like an outcast. It's nothing new at cons. I usually hit that wall at some point, but it just seemed to be a little more pronounced at this con. I tend to get it more at east coast cons as opposed to west coast. I guess I am more of an honorary SoCal fur. At most times I was able to just curl up with a book for an hour or 2 and then I would be ready to get out there and have fun again.
It was awesome to see tilt_longtail in action. He is one of the best fursuiters out there. I was also amazed at the energy of Santa Fox. I hope I get to meet him at another con. It was also nice to meet a few new furs like evilwolfy, murasadramon, and huscoon.
On a TMI note, this was probably one of the yiffiest cons I have ever been to. I am such a slut, but I hope I put a smile on several people's faces. It was good for me ;o)
