Update: September 9th, 2016.
Yesterday, I spent my time having so much fun at Furry Migration 2016, whose theme was ‘Quest for Shiny’ amid a treasure hunt I sadly didn’t take part in. Although it wasn’t as massive as something like Anthrocon in Pittsburgh, the convention is still a ton of fun. After the Opening Ceremonies and a greeting to the Guests of Honor, the convention began with heavy cheer and barking! Oh, and some fursuits :3
With panels such as the basics of fursuiting, advice on writing short stories from Kyell Gold, a panel on the Memoirs of Sunny Dingos’s walkabout in life, a Friday Dance filled with stage smoke and laser, and a let’s play of Outlast, followed by a late-night screening of Disney’s “Zootopia”, the convention will continue to only be much more fun!
Update: September 10th, 2016
Although today was going to be my last day at the convention, I will mention that it really ended with a blast! Starting off with a few panels such as ‘Suiting on a Deeper Level’ for fursuiters and some casual talk in the Dealer’s Den.
However, Saturday’s part of the convention never wholly began without a legendary Fursuit Parade! 😀 Packed with imaginative, innovative and created men, women, and everyone in between, the Parade always highlights how much the furry fandom has to offer. Canine, feline, whatever, you admire how much effort and sweat are put into these wonderful costumes and designed characters.
And you should’ve seen the looks on businessmens’ facees when they came into the lobby of a hotel, probably hoping for a boring and uneventful stay, when they see the following picture 🙂 An acquaintance even told me how this small medical convention above us had a couple of doctors genuinely surprised by the sight of furries after going to panels all about depressing and sad illnesses. Hopefully, this put a smile on their faces? 🙂
After the Fursuit Parade, I visited various things and met unique individuals 🙂 After going to a panel called “History of Furries” on how much science fiction and the Internet shaped the fandom, I visited two panels led by Kyell Gold, one that talked about writing novel called…”How to Write a Novel” and another about the author himself and future projects.
Then, I decided to wander a bit and went to a panel held by Ursula Vernon on publishing both inside and outside the furry fandom. She gave great advice, answered question poignantly, and it makes me curious about reading her “Digger” series someday 🙂 I even got myself a few books at the Dealer’s Den during my stay at Furry Migration, and may review one of them in the future 😉
Well it’s getting late, so good night, and good-bye tomorrow Minneapolis! 🙂
