So! To ease my sadness, here is the secret suit that I teased + the two “made in 48-hours” suits I had planned to bring to the convention!
A Grumpy Tropical Tiger, a Sweet Koala, and a cute lil’ Cinnamon Roll Sheep.
The tiger will be up for sale/auction eventually as a light partial. The koala might go up for sale/auction as a halfsuit. The sheep needs some work done + maybe some horns added and
might go up for sale/auction as an idk yet.
Gauging a bit of interest here, so I hope you all like them, cuz you might have the chance to bid on them soon! :)
Woo, the final results of my badge pre-orders I took during November! Had a blast working on these and delivering them at Midwest Furfest last weekend. Big huge thank you to everyone who commissioned me! I will try to do pre-orders before every convention I attend.
I’ve talked with an extremely wide range of people over the years, including a lot of out-and-proud racists. A few weeks ago, I had the displeasure of witnessing the coldest, most hateful words of my life.
For context, I was working a detail as security hired by the venue at a small comic convention (not to be confused with the convention’s own security). I was walking the convention floor, being visible and enjoying being paid overtime to attend a comic convention. I stopped to chat with various vendors, let them know I was there, checking if they had concerns and being cordial.
One vendor, with a kind of generic stuff booth, was a bit dubious about the amount of security. I said, as a way of justifying the need for security, that a few years ago, a furry convention had been subject to a poison gas attack that put a large number of people in the hospital. He asked if it killed anybody. I said no, but it could have. He said that it was a shame that nobody died and I turned and walked away, because there’s nothing you can say on the clock in response to that.
I’ve had people say to my face that they don’t believe in anti-furry sentiment. I’m not saying that furries are The Most Disadvantaged™ or something, but for fucks sake, don’t try to tell me that vicious, violent anti-furry sentiment doesn’t exist.
