This was the best furcon EVAR for me (and my 5th time attending.) I was delighted to be asked to DJ for the Friday night fursuit dance - looking out over the dance floor to see 'suiters and other folks happily bopping around was a huge thrill!
Another first for me was speaking on a panel. (From Your Mom to the Media - talking about the furry subculture with non-participants.) It went really well and we're planning to offer it for next year as well.
Vending at the Bunnywarez table took up most of my days, but it was a lot of fun chatting with people and I especially enjoyed seeing some of our stuff returning to FC with folks who'd bought it previously. I am always grateful for the support our little business receives. We started out just over two years ago, thinking we'd have fun and hopefully make back a bit of what it costs to attend the con - and in the past two years it has grown into a full-time, real business for us. We LOVE what we do and are full of new ideas for the future! Thanks so much for all of your support and encouragement! We literally would not be doing this if it wasn't for FC.
It wouldn't be FC without all the awesome peeps who come out every year. I love catching up with friends and meeting rad new folks. Personally that's probably the best part of all for me. Thanks for all the hugs!
And finally, I have to say: the theme! The Fur East! This was an ENORMOUS thrill to me because I suggested this idea, two years ago in 2006! When it didn't get picked for '07 I figured that was it, wasn't going to happen... and then, W00T! It was AMAZING walking around the con and seeing ideas I'd suggested actually happening (taiko drummers, dragon dancers) as well as fabulous ideas like the fortune cookies which were a total surprise. I'm thinking about what to suggest for next time, but it's gonna be tough topping Fur East.
Thank you all so much for helping me realize these dreams! I can hardly wait to see what the future holds!
