FC, Brief Recap [Jan. 30th, 2008|10:26 pm]
Short, short version: Yay!

It was a pretty good year. I was recovering from a cold which meant that I didn't have my usual energy levels; I had to get extra rest and pace myself. It meant I had to skip some events (e.g. masquerade).

On the other paw, the two events I was responsible for went pretty well. We did Iron Artist and this year's secret medium was vases (pronounced "VAH-zen"). Our six artists painted some remarkable vases, especially considering the half hour time limit. I think the show was well received.

The other one was Quite Furry ("Qf"), a little panel quiz show. It was a new and experimental show based on the BBC show Qi which is hardly known in the states. It was in an awkward time slot (Sat 11pm) and I didn't have a chance to really advertise. Nevertheless, we got a spirited little audience of 20-25 furs. The panel (Trey, The Gneech, Genevive Fox, and Mel White after 3 Klingon Revenges) was willing and able to have fun with it. I think everyone had a nice, silly time of it.

It was also great to see so many old (and new) friends. I won't include a litany here; it's a significant fraction of my LJ friends list. You know who you are. And, hey, thanks to all of my friends, if it comes to that.

I debuted a new fursuit at FC, too. Remy from Ratatouille made a number of appearances here and there around the con. People especially liked the touch of having Linguini ride on his head; that was a relatively last-minute idea that I'm glad I could pull off. The highlight of it all was marching near the front of the fursuit parade (364! OMG.) with a bunch of my fellow rats. My rodent soul rejoiced! :D

I didn't have to guess very hard to figure out who that was in the Remy suit! (you predictable rat, you!)

Your suit was awesomely cool, the Linguini riding on top made me laugh more than just a little. It was cool seeing around the con an at the parade.

Yeeeeah, I was already drunk by 11pm Sat night. Though.... that might have made the show more interesting. :D

Part of the panel was drunk... part of the audience was drunk... Yeah, you would've fit right in. :)

Rodent Soul Rejoiced

The highlight of it all was marching near the front of the fursuit parade (364! OMG.) with a bunch of my fellow rats. My rodent soul rejoiced!

Savant will weep with longing when he finally sees this.

Which, given his work schedule, might not be until late March.

And nice to meet you, as well. Wish we'd had a bit more time to chat but, ah well, it's a con.

Timothy loved the trip and really loved the fursuits. Natural born furry. :D
