With this convention only a few days away, it's high time that I ought to post this meme!
IF you are attending ANW and are looking to meet up with me and where I'll be mingling, then this read is for you! It should prove quite comprehensive, but, if you've additional questions or I didn't cover something here, feel free to Note me!
Anthro Northwest ‘ANW’ – 09NOV-12NOV2017
-Basic Convention Info-
-Where are you staying?
The Renaissance, (main hotel.)
-What day are you getting there?
-How are you traveling?
-How long are you going?
Thursday through Sunday.
-What is the best way to find you?
Just keep an eye out for Sniper or my Sniper hoodie! I’ll be wearing badges for whichever suit I’m in at the time, as well as my Muzafr and Sniper badges at all times, no matter the particular suit I’m in.
This convention, I’ll also be debuting my Quadsuit of Sniper!
If nothing else works and you need to get a hold of me for something, (such as picking up a badge commission or a print,) please note me here or send me a Direct Message on Twitter! ( https://twitter.com/Twilight_Saint )
-If I see you, how should I get your attention?
Shout out any combination of ‘TwilightSaint, Twilight, Saint, Muzafr, Sniper, Desert Dragon, or Chin Dragon!’ I’ll answer to any of the above, haha. You may also shout out the name of the particular fursuit I’m wearing at the time!
If I’m in suit, please get in front of me and into my field of vision so I can see you! While in suit and really performing in character, I tend to move very quickly and may not see you if you’re standing to the side or behind me. You can also tap me on the shoulder! If you’re trying to get my attention and I happen to run off, that only means that I didn’t see you, and is also likely that I’m in a hurry to get to a particular event!
-What do you look like?
Look for all the dragon and Navy paraphernalia, some camo, keffiyeh, and a buzzcut. And a very srs expression. Really, I almost always have my eyebrows scrunched together.
But truly, just look for one of my fursuits! I’m literally going to be fursuiting as much as humanly possible, so finding me by my ‘human form’ will be nearly impossible at this convention, hehe.
-What is your gender?
Bullet Farmer. (Haha, guy.)
-How tall are you?
-Can I talk to you?
Yes! Just forgive the sailor’s mouth.
Friendly reminder that I don’t talk in suit while acting in character, and I prefer not to hold long conversations while in suit due to it being hard to hear you, and I also don’t want to lose my voice by yelling so that you can hear me!
If I do need/want to speak to you while I’m in fursuit, I’ll alert you via hand signals! If you’re trying to talk to me while in suit, just please remember to speak up a bit so I can hear you as clearly as possible.
-Can I touch you?
-Can I buy you drinks?
Sure! Only if it’s sealed or if I’m present while it’s being served.
-Can I give you food?
Chex Mix and sushi and curry, plz!
-Can I give you stuff?
Sure, if you’d like!
-Can I hug or snuggle with you?
Hugs are fine, yes! Please make sure I’ve seen you, though! While in suit, I may not see you since my peripheral vision is blocked. Just move in front of me and wait for me to acknowledge that I see ya.
-Are you nice?
-Can I come with you for food/fun/etc?
If there’s a group going somewhere, then sure!
-Can I take your picture?
In suit, yes please! I loooove looking through con pictures and videos after conventions – such great memories! If you happen to take any, please link them to me!
-Are there any panels you might be attending?
I’ll be attending quite a few, this convention!
I’ll be judging the Dance Competition, judging at the Dance Battle, (Pacific Rim Rumble!) And I shall also be in attendance at the Dutch Angel Dragon meetup.
Sniper will FOR SURE be at the Dance Competition, and you’ll be able to catch me before and after that occurs! I’m hoping to have the Quadsuit out for the DAD meetup, specifically.
I will be performing my Judge’s Showcase dance at the Dance Battle as well. High possibility that I will be there as Sniper, or possibly Sarge! I was planning to debut my Dinodog, Raze, at my Showcase, but following an unfortunate turn of events, it is unlikely that he will arrive in time for my departure to the convention. heart breaks
-Will you be suiting?
As much as humanly possible! The only times I will actually be out of suit will be to check into my room, and leave the vicinity of the convention center to get chow, haha.
-What suit(s) is/are you bringing?
Quite a few babs will be strutting their stuff!
-Sniper, of course!
-Quadsuit of Sniper
-Sarge, the Barkshark
And possibly another suit, or a partial as well! Leyto the collie may join!
-Do you have an artist table?
Nope! Not this time around.
-Do you do art?
Commissions, of course! Unfortunately I ended up very busy following my return from deployment, and thus I am saving up my Badge opening for MFF delivery. But if you run into me and have a question about commissions, just let me know, I’d be more than happy to answer any you may have. (I miiiiiight also do some traditional sketches, time permitting!)
-Where will you be most of the time during the day/s?
Running between panels and dance events, and suiting absolutely everywhere!
-Will you be performing?
Yes, quite a bit! You can catch my Judge’s Showcase dances at both the Dance Competition and the Dance Battles.
-What/where will you be eating?
Anywhere nearby. I like to stay in the immediate vicinity of the con to ensure I don’t miss events. But I sure have a lot of folks I can’t wait to see again and catch up with over a good meal!
To be honest, a bowl of Chex Mix also constitutes a meal for me, personally, as well, haha.
-Will you be going to parties?
If it’s in the company of people I know, then yes.
-What's your goal(s) for the con this year?
I’m so thrilled I’ll be able to attend this convention! So many of my friends are going, and it sounds like it’s going to be jam-packed with fun events! This convention also marks my ‘RTHP’ and return to the convention season, whoohoo! I honestly wasn’t sure if I would be back from deployment to make this con, so this will be great to hit the ground running. And then just in time for MFF, also! 2017 is really flying by, and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again and making the most of these remaining couple of months of the year!
As a result of attending this convention, I'll be missing this #FursuitFriday, oops! Ironic, that the first FF I'd miss would be stateside during a convention, after I went my entire deployment and didn't miss a single one, hehe!
I'll be catching up with a convention recap when I return and unpack! I think that will be really cool to look back on this convention, especially as this marks ANW's first year running.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
