Well, FurFright 2008 has come and gone, and what a blast it was!
From a socializing standpoint, this convention was a success. The hotel had an atrium in the center which made for a great gathering point, and since the security desk was also there, I got to bump into a great many people even while on duty. This made the con much more enjoyable as "work" was less like "work".
Random people I chatted with (and some I met for the first time at the con): Shortwave> (Thanks for the glowsticks!), Oryx Gazella, Gray Wolf, Vega (sorry about having a mouth full of Oreos), Petercat, Uncle Kage, Grandma Kage, Grandpa Kage, Finnishfox, Kojac, Canus Lupus, Midori, Creature, Davin Warter, Farraptor (It's not every day when I meet someone for the first time when they're in fursuit), and Tilt Longtail (it was nice meeting you OUT of fursuit!).
Keapano, Raff, and Tamen, it was a pleasure meeting you folks for the first time. I hope you'll be able to make it out to more furry cons.
Fennecus Kitsune, it was also cool meeting you for the first time.
Benji, it was good seeing you again for the first time in what, 3 years?
As I was working security with the Dorsai Irregulars, I got to see some familiar faces there, both DI and non-DI. Steve Simmons, Renegade, and Carol Gobeyn were all present, as were Dave Stein, Xander, Kasi Frost, Furp, Mrianti, ToraCub, and the rest of you.
If you made it this far, then you're probably looking for my full dump of pictures. They can be found on Flickr at http://flickr.com/photos/dmuth/sets/72157608249142588/.
For a final photo, this is Tilt Longtail and Grandma Kage, reenacting a famous picture:
My head asplode.
So anyway, I'm looking forward to next year's FurFright.
I'm also looking forward to Midwest Fur Fest next month. I hope to see everyone there!
