CONVENTION REPORT WEEEOOOO
Just got home from AWA! It was a lackluster con, but hanging out with people more than made up for it.
and I left on thursday for a ROADDDDD TRIP and before we know it it was over
The convention has 3x the people of anthrocon, but for some reason it just felt.. smaller. There was very little to do in the way of panels and the conspace seemed a bit restricted, so everything was just stuffy and a bit awkward. Most of the panels are anime and stuff and I really don't know shit about anime so I just poked around with our trio most of the time.
BUT THE BEST PART:
Ky and Skag's friends they met for their megaman crew.
(the names I knew them as) ARE PRETTY MUCH THE COOLEST DUDES EVER. I fully anticipated hanging back and not understanding a damn thing they were talking about, but instead we all talked about hilarious stuff and I ended up laughing all weekend. It was really damn sad to say goodbye to them on saturday night. If you two are reading this, YOU MADE OUR CON, JUST SAYIN. And yes i'm speaking for Ky and Badassskag. THEY KNOW.
After they left, I decided to fursuit on sunday. Going to an anime convention in a fursuit gives a lot of mixed reactions (someone thought i was the cookie crisp dog) but a little girl ran up to me and hugged me around the legs as she got a picture taken. I told myself i'd avoid kids when I started fursuiting but AS SOON AS THEY HUG AND HIGHFIVE YOU OH GOD MY HEART JUST MELTED. Otherwise, it was a lot of fun walking around and talking to assorted people.
Anyway I got this adorable bag from the dealer's room and a random grab bag with hilarious hentai figurines that we all assembled intentionally the wrong way.
On the way home we listened to custom music cds we made to pass the time by on the ride home, it was great.
All in all, GOOD TIMES. Thanks if you chatted with me while I was in suit!
