Not gonna lie when I saw the bird suit I was like “ah, a furry too?” and there was not an ounce of shock.
Ahahahaha! I was kind of waiting for hate…
My furry sona thing is a bird but I want to be an opossum now… Shit.
I actually joined a couple of suiters at MCM London, but they were Fox and Falco, so less weird I guess. ;) I actually spent a day at Anthrocon last year just drawin’ and chillin. I know what you mean about furry baggage though…
Oh, I would say go with either! Dog/wolf suits are done so much, so it’s refreshing to see birds, opossums, and other species.
Haha! I’m not sure how fursuiters are looked upon in England but I know here the Fox and Falco suiters would have had a much nicer time than general furries. Ya’ know, it’s really a bummer that so many people express such disdain for furries. I get a little worried when the word comes up. Last time I tried talking about furries the whole animation department jolted up shouting, “Freaking weirdos. I hate furries.” Got a bit saucy for a minute. Anyway, conventions would be hella more enjoyable without getting tar kicked out of you. XD
Oh woah! You went to Anthrocon? Isn’t that one of the biggest furry conventions in the world, if not the biggest? From what I heard, it’s a pretty amazing convention! You are welcome to tell stories about your experiences there if you want.
The fun Anthrocon stories aren’t actually related to furries… Oddly enough.
Was in Virginia, the boyf decided rather last minute he wanted to go to AC. I book a random hotel just outside of Pittsburg and off we go in his car that probably wasn’t cut out for the drive.
We drove the mountain toll-free roads into the night with windows down because his AC made it sound like the car was about to explode. So we’re racing through these winding, empty roads, and some truck is flashing at us and we’re like wonder what he’s trying to tell us…? Well I don’t even know how to explain, but the road turned into some Mario Kart BS I swear. Some kind of road works, I guess, but no workers around. And there was a waterfall cascading down the fucking road WENT THROUGH? I think some kind of burst pipe… Like, this sounds nuts, and we still don’t fucking know what the hell happened. Doesn’t help I was half asleep. We also hit what we think was a raccoon, and after that his car started to shake violently whilst accelerating… We didn’t think we’d make it home.
We get to Pittsburg and do Anthrocon for a day and just hang out drawing all fucking day. We didn’t pay to go in. We just hung out. It was cool. I didn’t see anything weird or creepy, really. But then I don’t hang around with weirdos.
Next day, coasters OF COURSE. We’d already done Kennywood, the most local park, a previous year, so we went to Lakemont, home of the oldest operating coaster in the USA. It was expectedly shit. Fun was had. Another tick off the list!
