Posted this to FA and didn't realize that I forgot to post in here! Whoops
Redoing this from the FC meme I did earlier this year. Once again I'm always kind of amazed at all the permutations of this meme that grew out of the "Official Anthrocon Journal" I did so many years ago. Just something for my own communication but it got picked up by so many people and now memes like this seem to be the standard for pre-convention posts. It's a weird feeling!
Grand Sierra Resort
Not sure what day I'll be getting in, but we live in driving distance so we're usually there for the whole con if we can be.
Means of transportation
Cassio's green box of a car!
Who do you hang out with?
Hoping to get some time in with Takumori, Latte and wolfwithdances, maybe some other locals as well, plus any further-away friends who may be coming! Always looking for new friends too :>
Polyamorous (Cassio and Hailbop and a few play partners).
How old are you?
How tall are you?
Are you an Artist?
For a living!
Do you have an artist table?
Newp. Applied but didn't get in.
Do you take commissions?
Generally yes, but I am currently closed and only taking comms in weekly streams. Also I would not accept money for a commission at a convention if I did not have a table to do so at, cause that's bad!
Do you do trades?
Are you a Fursuiter?
If I get invited, maybe!
Do you drink?
Can I buy you a drink?
Do you smoke?
Are you attending any panels?
I honestly haven't looked at the schedule yet! I may, if I see any that interest me.
Stage or public performance?
How do I identify myself to you?
Introduce yourself and tell me who you are! Maybe describe your FA or WZL icon if you comment regularly and your name doesn't seem to ring a bell.
Rules of engagement (physical contact)?
Always ask first.
How can I find you?
Look for my costumes (Mettmut the jackal, a WildGasmasks black-and-red jackal mask in dapper clothing and big boots; Charcoal the caiman, a black-and-pink-and-yellow crocodilian partial by Takumori/Scaleworx; may also be in Ikani's Canterbury, the plush armadillo by Suit-A-Dile - if it's me, he'll be wearing a brightly colored bandana around his neck), or just look for me around the con or outside smoking: short, fat, DFAB, orangish (or black, if I get it dyed in time) mohawk, dark green glasses with peacock feathers on the arms, leather cuff on one wrist and text tattoo on the other, ear and lip piercings, probably wearing a shirt with some sort of gender commentary on it or brightly colored nonsense (or a big black or grey hoodie). Typically have CassioBunny in tow and he's easier to spot than me: 6'7" ginger DMAB person with a fuzzy mohawk, ear piercings, probably nerdy shirt.
Can I talk to you?
You sure can!
Can I give you lots of money?
Sure! If you want something in return we'd better discuss it first, though.
Can I give you stuff?
As long as it's not poison!
Can I hug or snuggle with you?
Probably not, but it doesn't hurt to ask.
Can I come to dinner with you?
As long as everyone else going is okay with it too! Just ask first!
Can I hang out with you?
Probably! Ask first in case I'm busy.
Can I take your picture?
Ask first! Unless I'm in costume in which case just go for it.
How do I know if you're not looking to socialize (angry, busy or upset)?
If I'm not actively in tears or telling you 'Sorry, I'm busy right now, I gotta go', I'm probably good to socialize.
A weird mix of shy/anxious and loud/outgoing. I'm pretty good at meshing well with most groups, and I like helping people. I tend to be pretty no-nonsense when something needs taking care of, but other than that I'm generally fun-loving, silly, talkative, and friendly. May occasionally be seen looking twitchy/nervous, quiet, spaced-out, etc if I'm having a bad time. If I seem like I'm not doing great feel free to check on me, but be aware that I have a pretty severe tremor at times from a combination of anxiety and Lithium, so if I seem okay but I'm shaking badly don't be concerned.
Draw fun things. Meet fun people. Costume a lot! Avoid the really drunk people. Might gamble a teensy bit for funsies. Do some bowling! Try and get out to the go-karts this year (never managed it before). Attend the Fursuit Festival. Maybe do some kink stuff. Possibly stick my head in a dance, maybe in costume also. Spend time with friends! Generally, just have a good time.
Are you going? If so, do this meme and link me, or just lemme know your plans! I wanna be really social this con so being able to say hi to people is a good first step! I'm also happy to exchange phone numbers with people I already know well (mutually) to arrange hang-out time. Whee!
