FurFright 2008

Headed out friday with tigerman and arrived early afternoon, pretty much just got unpacked and tried to rest a bit while roommates showed up: tiggycat, catmandux and stoneliongrowl. Had an interesting attempt at finding something called the Silver Diner - which we had thought was in walking distance but a half-mile later found that it was a little out of our reach being closed for the past year or so, got some italian instead.

Most of this con was doing non-con things, I just couldn't get into doing any of the panel or other events though it was fun watching the fursuit parade, that was definitely a hi-light; there were so many suits, the numbers had to be near in range with some of the very large cons but fursuit to attendee ratio I'm thinking it may be the highest of all the cons out there right now. I also counted two Jokers, a couple Kruegers, several zombies, a Riddler, a Raoul Duke, a couple ninjas, a ghostbuster, a Beatlejuice, and... possibly some others outside the maybe/maybe not costumes of punk-rockers and goths. One thing I was really hoping for was an art show - which was sadly missing, even if I don't manage to outbid anyone it's always great to see new original artwork from a lot of the great artists out there. The waterpark seemed a bit of a letdown, not sure if anyone actually checked it out but from a distance it had little more than the one slide going for it - the cost and tons and tons of tiny screaming children surrounding the slide was also a demotivating factor.

The con had its moments, I saw a number of people I hadn't seen in awhile - and as mentioned in my previous post, others who I wasn't really sure if they remembered me or on what note we last spoke so in many of those cases I left it in their court whether to approach me and strike up a conversation - in many cases nothing happened. There were a few great parties going on saturday night (and I made it to my first cake-con, not to mention Shy's dessert party - a wonder nobody got diabetes), everyone I hung out with I had fun seeing (not gonna go into the name dropping thing, if I chilled with you for more than three minutes then know I enjoyed seeing you, toss-up if it was the 1-3 minute mark :P ).

But no, between outside things and things at the con, wasn't that great an experience for me :/

Anyways, pictures!
