(mostly copy and pasted from my Fa page) |
Well I'm back from anthrocon, a Grand adventure in so many ways, and while it started slow, and BOY do I know a lot of things I can do better/plan better now, it turned out quite nice..
A)Survived the journey, obviously did, first time flying/going to a new city/con and so on, intimidating for sure, but managed.
B)Shirts delivered 8 for 8, what this means I'll explain in the coming days.... and for the folks here its pretty damn obvious i think)
C)Folks met/chatted with((this was the biggest challenge because it is a major weakness of mine to meet people in person), started out slow, but by the end was recognizing folks and saying hi more often, defintely view this as an accomplishment, feel more “Apart” of the group now that i've made it through a con, going to try to make a list at some point, attended two big functions, managed to stay a while even if by the end I just had to leave.. natural shyness can only take so much. Managed to say hi to Severus coil, had known him a long time ago, and of course one of my early idols Strega(Though dind't get to much talking done, was way to shy there, more to work on next year). Admitedly I missed a lot too, from just never running into them, to not knowing they were there(Lucked out on saying hi to Race by surprise though)
D) Souvenirs, minor, just couldn't decide, had limited space and no real solid commission ideas
E)Favorite surprise, I think seeing the fursuit games, done with such panache and good humor
Grand total, 9/10, going to be making my plans to attend next year if at all possible, see all these folks again and hope my memory for looks stays...
Anyhow, plan to be doing a lot of drawings for folks I talked to, a few on the con in general, and explain the shirt stuff too
