Another one from Vancoufur. Drawn in pencil, black fineliner pen, black ballpoint pen (as the fineliner ran out partway through), and metallic gel pens.

Con!

VancouFur was loads of fun.

In lieu of a proper summary, some amusing things overhead through the weekend:

I haven't seen Phil all evening. He must be in a room doing things.

They're all waiting for a master. All of them.

You can see the depression in her soul by the way she flourishes her arms.

Your tails don't match. I'm not sure I can deal with that.

Your paws fell off. You're mutating into a human.

Friday done

Yesterday included doughnuts for breakfast before setting out to the con.

We swung through the art show and the dealers den (that is large and actually there are maps on tables as one goes in).

I went to the guests of honour concert largely for Alexander James Adams. Couldn't properly hear most of his Puss In Boots song as the instrument balance in the sound system was far too loud, but I'd enjoyed that one at the last concert of his I was at.

Animals All The Same will appropriately be stuck in my head for days.

Out to dinner post-concert we bumped into a bouncy pink creature who remembered us from Furlandia. I said to her perhaps I should have brought my fish after all.

There are. by the way, coloured and slogan ribbons to stick onto attendance badges so I am indeed ignoring clothes colours. (But keeping an informal tally of Woot shirts.)

Haven't run into GreenReaper as yet but there are things for Flayrah among the dropcards on tables and I belive he is around.

A newsletter from Rainfurrest showed up in my email today. I am side-eyeing their attempt to colour-code attendees.

A quote:
You can help us all celebrate by showing us what the furry fandom really means to you! We have identified some of the biggest topics that furries express within the fandom and have made it fun and easy to identify these topics. With COLOR!

• Artwork - Red
• Costuming - Blue
• Performance - Purple
• Writing - Yellow
• Social - Green
• Gaming - Orange

How about you show us YOUR colors?

Are you a musician or a dancer? Wear a purple shirt and show everyone!


I must be extra sure to pack my striped arm warmers. Enough colours to confuse matters!

Start of art catchup

Despite the very slow start and some continued confusion, I'm enjoying Furlandia.

The panels I've been to have been small but interesting enough. And there is indeed a dealers den which was open on time.

Big chunk of today there's not much on the schedule that excited me, so in a while we are off to Powells. Books!

The Lost Prince is keeping me entertained during downtime.

Morning in Portland

I am drinking tea with soymilk in because that's available.

Schedule somewhere or other said the Dealers Den opens today at ten in the morning, which I believe is totally possible if the dealers get a chance at a settup room. Last night they apparently made an unofficial dealers line.

Meanwhile I have tea and The Lost Prince on Sineala's recommendation.

But am introvert

Around nine o'clock music started being played (loudly) and the room had tables of people, but at this point, finally registered and with a badge, I'd hit social saturation.

We joked that the hours in the registration lineup were the scheduled "mixer" social event.

I made my catfish kiss Mystery Otter's salmon.

Furlandia

All registered for Furlandia, although a little suspicious about how much might actually be happening. There is apparently not going to be an art show.

So that's significantly less hassle to expect at the border, but I like showing my stuff and really like looking at others' art through a con weekend.

Went to the con long enough to register around lunchtime, went into Seattle for lunch, then once back wandered the con at a relaxed pace.

I was checking out the Dealers Den while carrying my fish under my arm. Someone behind a table was all "Why are you carrying a trout... oh, catfish." I said cats have whiskers, catfish have whiskers... natural friends.
