Furpocalypse 2018 Con Journal by acinonyxjubatusrex

Surprise! I had not intended on attending this convention at all (like, ever), but I won a ticket in a contest. Can't say no to free!

I have no time to make a video so you get text instead! Whoo!

Q: Where are you staying?
A: Quality Inn, which is across the street from the con hotel. I don't like mushrooms that much.

Q: What day are you getting there and how long are you staying?
A: I gotta be a responsible adult and bring home that $mad chedda$ so I'm only going to be there Saturday and Sunday! (Maybe Friday night, depending on how tired I am and if I can grab ahold of my badge in time to hit the dance.)

Q: Who will you be rooming with?
A: Four strangers from the internet, in true furry fashion. I haven't done this since my anime con days. Here's hoping it doesn't bite me in the booty!

Q: How are you traveling?
A: Vroom vroom beep beep

Q: What is your gender?
A: Female (she/her)

Q: How tall are you?
A: 5'1"

Q: What do you look like?
A: Here's my suit, though I won't look exactly like that since I will be wearing a SURPRISE COSTUME! oooOOoOoOOOoooohh!
Out of suit, uh, I guess look for some Shetani badges?

Q: Are there any panels you might be attending?
A: I will be at the Pin Trading panel on Saturday night! Come trade Disney pins and stuff with me! I will also be in the Fursuit Parade. Anything else, I'll just be playing by ear.

Q: What about meetups or other events?
A: I'm not aware of any other extracurriculars going on that would be relevant to my interests. Furpoc seems more of a party con from what I've heard, so maybe I'll go to a couple of those. I sure wish they had trick-or-treating more days than just Friday!

Q: Where will you be most of the time during the day?
A: Most likely the Dealer's Den/Artist's Alley, or at those panels/meets I mentioned earlier.

Q: What/where will you be eating?
A: No idea, it's my first year at this convention!

Q: Can I come with you for food/fun/etc.?
A: You're more than welcome to! If you're a local I will probably defer to your food judgement (see above).

Q: Will you be suiting?
A: Yup! I'll be in the fursuit group photo/parade on Saturday, as well as suiting around randomly. Keep an eye out for my costume!

Q: If I see you, how should I get your attention?
A: Yell "Shetani!" or tap me on the shoulder.

Q: What is the best way to find you?
A: Contact me on Twitter (@ShetaniCheetah) or Telegram! I don't give my Telegram out, but you can ask for it.

Q: Do you do free art, trades, or badges? Do you have an artist table?
A: No, sorry! I can't draw. :(

Q: Can I talk to you?
A: Absolutely! I love making new friends!

Q: Can I take your picture?
A: PLEASE DO! I will be flying solo this con, so I won't have a handler to take photos of me. I'll have to rely on everyone else to capture those great Furpoc memories! For this reason, PLEASE PLEASE tag me in any pictures or videos you share on social media, or send them to me directly! I'm counting on you!

Q: Can I buy you drinks?
A: You can buy me a non-alcoholic beverage in a closed container! I like fruit-flavored drinks, tea, and water.

Q: Can I give you stuff?
A: Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat!

Q: Can I hug or snuggle with you?
A: I'll hardly ever say no to a hug when asked! Snuggles are probably not gonna happen.

Q: Are you nice?
A: Of course!

Q: Will you be going to parties?
A: I really don't think so, unless I'm invited to one.

Q: Will you be performing?
A: No, I'm not talented!

Q: What's your goal for the con this year?
A: Have fun, be safe, get candy!

    Furpoc 2016's the only con I've ever been to. Was a lot of fun. Keep an eye out for the ferret twins, Oreo and Skittles. They will overwhelm you with cuteness.

    As for eats:
    Ted's: http://www.tedsrestaurant.com/meriden-location.html
    The Cromwell Diner: https://www.cromwelldiner.com/

    Ate at one or the other pretty much all weekend. The Mac n' Cheese at the Cromwell is amazing.

      Ooh, thanks for the recs! I love mac and cheese, and diners are often a pretty thrifty food option to boot.

        Ted's may be the more "thrifty," as Cromwell's a bit of a "fancy" diner. But three cheese mac might be worth it.
