Well, I am back from yet another con. And let me tell you Confurence 9 was my best and most favorite con yet. I had an awesome time there! I met lots of old friends and made a lot of new friends. Bought lots of cool art. And I actually sold one of my pieces in the art show. OH YEAH!! And this con was the first time I had my new Fursuit, Wildwolf. Lots seemed to like it a lot. Even tho I did not win anything for it in the Fursuit Contest, I did not care. I made it for fun, and do not really care if I win or not. But don't get me wrong. If I ever do win something for it, I will be happy tho. I am actually making Wildwolf #2 now, since the fur on my Fursuit got worn off at CF9. Oh well, that is what I get for getting cheap fur. Wildwolf #2 will be almost the same, but will have a lot better fur, and the fur will be different color, than the original suit. And I may make a few small adjustments. And I would like to thank my wonderful wolf brother Loopy for inspiring me with his Loopy costume. His costume inspired me to start and finish my fursuit. If it was not for him, Wildwolf would still be a pile of fur in my corner.
I arrived at the Buena Park Hotel on Wed. night with my roommate and good friend Ixbalam. We were traveling for about 12 hours, from the East Coast to the West. It was a tiring trip. At least we had First Class along the way. As soon as we arrived, we met some old friends. I was surprised how many Furs were there that early. I ran into Ysengrin Werewolf and Lance Pope that night too. And we planned to meet the next day at Disneyland, which we did. Then I went out to eat with Ixbalam, and that was about it for Wed.
Thursday was so fun. Ysengrin Werewolf, Lance Pope, Dragon, Smash Greywolf, Ixbalam and me all met at Disneyland, and we took the park by storm. Even tho it was drizzling most of the day, we still all had a wonderful time. We went on a lot of cool rides. I would like to thank Ysengrin Werewolf, Lance Pope, Smash, and Dragon for show me and Ixbalam a good time in Disney. Thanks guys!! I had a wonderful time hanging with you guys. And can't wait to hang with you again in the future! That night I got into my Fursuit for the first time at a con. It was late. Around 11:30 pm. But I had a great time in it.
Friday was a day if buying art in the Dealer's Den for me. That is what I did for most of the day. I went around the Dealer's Den and joined some Sigs. The day went buy fast. That night I got back into Wildwolf and went to the Purple Nurple Dance. I had another great night in my Fursuit. Infact the whole con.. all 5 days I was there were awesome. I had not one thing go wrong at the con. That is why it was the best one yet.
Saturday was cool too. I was really nervous all morning, cause I was in the Fursuit Presentation. I got in my Fursuit a little before the competition and ran around the Dealer's Den. I got the artists going, and got some pics, one with Terrie Smith. Oh and I got interviewed by a Brazilian News Cast. Unfortunately, I will never see that tape. Anyway, I got on stage for the Presentation, and cut it short cause they would not let me get in the audience, so my routine was cut SHORT you could say. Like I was out there for 30 -45 seconds. It was really pitiful. Oh well. I can build up more courage and make it longer at the next con. After the Presentation was over, I went out to the pool for a photo shoot. And got really wet paws there too, with the soaked indoor outdoor carpet. They should have had the photo shoot somewhere more dry. Lots of Fursuiters complained about the wet carpet. After the photo shoot I hoped out of Wildwolf for a bit. I met Kitelcat who was staying with us for the night. He put his stuff in our room, then went off to have fun at the con. Later that night I got into my Fursuit again for the Pool side Fursuit dance. This time I wore my shoes instead of my paws. I did not want to get soaked paws again. I danced the night away. And I was in my Fursuit for a total of 8 hours that day.
Sunday was a rest day for me. I took it easy and just walked around talking to friends. I also put some bids up on Art Show pieces, and got 4 of them. One of them was an original Chester piece by Terrie Smith. But I gave it to Ixbalam for a late Christmas present. I hope he likes it. I also founf out that one of my art pieces in the Art Show sold too. I was really happy that someone liked my art. I bet you can't guess what I did at night again. Yup! Got into Wildwolf again. I love getting into my Fursuit! It is so fun!
You think that is it. No no! I stayed an extra day and night. And on Monday we got a HUGE group together and went to Disney again. Jim Groat was in this group for a little untill we split into smaller groups. I was surprised the Sercurity was not following us with Jim Groat acting his normal funny self. :) Like the "HAIL WALT DISNEY" in front of the Walt Disney and Mickey Statue. Or the marching of15 furs across the park while yelling German words. Jim Groat is great! Oh and Jim.... "I AM NOT A FANBOY!!!" Just thought I would straighten that out. This was another wonderful day. To bad it was the last day. ::Whimper::
Me and Ixbalam got back on the plane home on Tuesday Morning. I was so sad. I will miss all you furs I met and hung out with. You made my con so fun! Thank you so much. ::HUG:: I will miss you Loopy, Ysengrin Werewolf, Smash Greywolf, Dragon, Todfox, Slyfox, Big Bad Wolf, Johny Blanco, Singe, Jim Groat, Lance Pope, Yippie Coyote, Witchcat, Greyfur, Sean Cologne, Kitelcat, Tigercat, Koshaw, Brokken, Furlup, Bladestone, Manawolf, Ginger, Amara, Kagur, all the Fursuiters, and all you other wonderful furs! You knopw who you are. Thanks again for a great con!
