It's that time of year again! I am lucky and grateful enough to make it to AC yet again. :) Y'all know what this is about, so without further ado...
Anthrocon – 04JUL-08JUL2019
-Basic Convention Info-
-Where are you staying?
The main hotel, the Westin!
-What day are you getting there?
-How are you traveling?
Wiiiiiiings. Not my stubby, fast wings, but still quick nonetheless! Haha.
-How long are you going?
Thursday through Sunday, departing Monday. A good, solid chunk of time to enjoy the con!
-What is the best way to find you?
Keep an eye out for myself running around in fursuit! I’ll be bringing Sniper, Raze, Ramiel, and Iroh! I’ll be wearing badges for whichever suit I’m in at the time.
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 ) Twitter is the best and quickest way of contact for me as I will receive mobile notifications.
-If I see you, how should I get your attention?
Shout out any combination of ‘TwilightSaint, Twilight, Saint,’ or the name of the 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!
In addition, and if I’m busy at the moment or if you’re simply shy, feel free to approach my friend and handler with me! If you’re looking for a photograph or simply to say hi, my handlers are always amazing, dedicated folks, and will definitely get my attention for you, even if I’m in full raptor mode and killing somebody on the floor, hehe!
-What should I be looking for?
Just keep an eye out for one of my suits! I’ll be fursuiting pretty much at all times during the convention, exception being (what little) sleeping and scarfing down snacks as quickly as I can in my room… If only to make sure I have enough fuel to keep on fursuiting!
-What is your gender?
-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 projecting so that you can hear me. Raspy voice and sore throat is not how I want to spend the second half of my con nor next few days at work. So please, do not anticipate me to speak much while in fursuit.
-Can I touch you?
Due to ongoing issues these days-
-ONLY if I have consented to it.
Fursuiting does NOT equal default consent to whatever you want to do or think you can get away with.
This will be obvious. Even in suit, I will have clearly acknowledged that I have seen you, after which by all means, let’s definitely interact and have fun! I cannot guarantee how excited I will be to rough-house while in suit, however, Please spot my info badge I’ll be wearing at the time!
Otherwise! Hugs, yes! Taps on the shoulder to get my attention, yes! Nose boops, sure thing! (Seriously though, as long as you’re gentle about it.) Tackling me from my blind spot running top speed? No.
-Can I buy you drinks?
Yep! Only if it’s sealed or if I’m present while it’s being served. This also applies to water in the fursuit lounge or backstage at dance auditions/events.
-Can I give you food?
Sniper will dance for Chex Mix. Raze will just beat you up for it.
-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! Please be advised, however, that my schedule at conventions is very dynamic and centered around Dance events! And while I am fursuiting, I have zero access to my phone and thus messages if you’re trying to reach me. While I sure do my best to meet up with folks, sometimes my schedule is very hectic and plans are made last-minute.
-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 or tag me on social media!
-Are there any panels you might be attending?
I’ll be at the Dutch Angel Dragon meet up as Sniper! I’ll also be attending midday Friday Dance Competition and Floor Wars Auditions as Raze. Fingers crossed that I’ll make it to the Floor Wars and Dance Competition Finals! Definitely also planning on hitting up the raves every single night, in varying fursuits.
I’ll also be attending the fursuit parade! I am a total fan of fursuit parades, I just love them, and it honestly bums me out that a lot of conventions have opted away from them. Really looking forward to the legendary AC parade! Especially with the band and how they open it up to the public and city of Pittsburgh too? Hello, that’s awesome!
-Will you be suiting?
Literally until my arms fall out of their sockets.
-What suit(s) is/are you bringing?
Sniper, Raze, Ramiel, and Iroh are all gonna be flying with me!
-Do you have an artist table?
Nope! Wanna Commission me? Keep an eye out for my Journals and Twitter updates instead!
-Where will you be most of the time during the day/s?
Running between panels and dance events, and suiting absolutely everywhere! Evenings will be reserved for chilling, chow, and then the raves. I will do my best to put out a report of my intended movements and fursuit I’ll be running around in prior to going full beast mode! This is so folks can keep an eye out for me when I’m Raptor-ing or Kestrel-ing or Weredog-ing or Lion-ing around!
-Will you be performing?
Hell yeah, a lot! Other than typical fursuiting absolutely everywhere all the time, (haha,) I’ll be at the DutchAD meet, Floor Wars auditions, Dance Comp auditions, and inshallah the dance event finals as well!
-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, so I usually prefer to grab ‘n go snacks in my room. But I sure have a lot of folks I can’t wait to see again and catch up with over a good meal!
-Will you be going to parties?
Nah, I’m not huge into partying! But if I’m invited, I always try and stop by to say hi and visit with folks!
-What's your goal(s) for the con this year?
Hoping that my travels are safe and uneventful, the con is a safe and fun experience, and it helps me get a bit of an energy boost after a pretty bumpy past year. :) And most importantly, being able to see friends I otherwise don’t get to see out of conventions like this one.
Hope to see some awesome folks there! <3 Seriously though, the best way to reach me during the con will be over Twitter and other social media, (except FaceBook - I really dislike Messenger and my notifications move way too quickly to follow comments on posts.) If you're traveling to AC, too, please be safe! I hope your travels go safely and smoothly, no surprises, and that the con is a great one for ya. :D
