FA United / Herndon, VA / 04-06OCT2019 //
-Basic Convention Info-
-Where are you staying?
The main hotel! This will be my first time able to attend FAU. Pretty excited to make it to FA’s flagship convention!
-What day are you getting there?
-How are you traveling?
Wings, then driving partway with some friends!
-How long are you going?
Friday evening through Sunday evening. Hopefully enough time to check out the main activities!
-What is the best way to find you?
Keep an eye out for myself running around in fursuit! Sniper, Raze, Gamma, and Iroh are coming with me! 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 is your gender?
A pissed off old man wizard who is searching the muggle world for his long lost will to live. No sign of it yet…
-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. Please do not anticipate me to speak much while in fursuit and do not take it personally as I assure you it isn’t!
-Can I touch you?
I happily will give hugs and interact while in fursuit! <3 But please only touch/hug me after you’ve gotten my attention and asked and I’ve said yes! I move a lot and quickly while in suit, so it’s easiest to just get in front of or slightly off to the side of wherever my fursuit snout is pointing as that’s the most likely I’ll be able to see ya!
-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?
-Can I give you stuff?
Sure, if you’d like! I appreciate art and trinkets and the 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.
Also please note, (and this goes for almost any fursuiter, really,) if you are hanging onto me or standing up against me and I move to step back, please give me space! This isn’t because you’ve offended me or otherwise, it’s simply because I am VERY HOT and need some space to get air circulating around my body and face while in suit! In cramped quarters next to lots of similarly warm people, the temperature in my fursuit rises very quickly, and the best way for me personally to cool down is to have ample space where I can get airflow around and through my fursuit.
-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.
Again, I must reiterate – while in suit, I have ZERO access to my phone! Yes, that means Telegram, Twitter, and any other sort of social media or messages. If you happen to message me while I’m suiting, (which I do A LOT at conventions,) I will not reply because I don’t have my phone on me! I will see it when I get out of suit. Please be patient! :>
-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!
ALSO, please post any and all photos of other suiters and myself on Furtrack.com!!! It’s the newest, most streamlined photo hosting site where you can tag fursuiters, events, makers, photographers, and more. No more endless scrolling through Twitter and Instagram trying to find where allllll those photos from alllllll those cameras and phones went…FurTrack is there to help photographers and fursuiters alike find each other and share great memories!
-Are there any panels you might be attending?
I’ll be checking in for the Dance Competition as Gamma! Hopefully I’ll also be attending the fursuit photoshoot and the fursuit parade. In general, I’ll also be browsing the Dealers Den and lobby/con areas as a critter, doing critter stuff.
-Will you be suiting?
Until this current body fizzles away in some magic black dust, and I can find the ingredients to create a new body and just continue freaking fursuiting. Only I can fursuit forever…
-What suit(s) is/are you bringing?
Sniper, the Kestrel King, and Raze, your Raptor Boyfriend! Also Iroh, the liger, and Gamma, the striped ‘yeen!
-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 know which fursuit to keep an eye out for if they’d like a photo or to say hi!
-Will you be performing?
Hell yeah, a lot! Other than typical fursuiting absolutely everywhere all the time, (haha,) I’ll be attending the dance-centered events, and possibly the nightly raves 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?
I just hope that everybody’s travel goes safely and smoothly, and that FAU ends up being a good time and maybe an east coast con that I’ll return to!
