Thursday: November, 29th, I left for the convention. I woke up at 4 AM so my father could drive me to the airport. My flight was at 6:20 AM So I ended up at the convention around 7 or 8ish. The first official day was pretty quiet besides the GIANT LINE FOR REGISTRATION! MFF is known as Line-Con due to how long the registration lines were. Thankfully I left really early to get in line and being a sponsor helped quite a bit! I ended up getting my badge within an Hour so I wasn’t too bad for me personally. Many of my friends waited 3 hours+ for their badge. The disorganization of this convention was one of the only downsides of the entire con! I finally arrived to at my room after getting dropped off by the Shuttle. CrazDude and Lalarke was there! I was so glad I finally got to meet Alex! She’s such a sweet heart and I’ve commissioned her a thousand times! She actually did a free badge for me as a Christmas gift and she got an adorable little deer ornament that was super duper dorky! We ended up naming him B.O.I. aka Bambi on ice! I also got to meet our other roommate a bit later! Her name is Entropy and she has bright purple hair and her fursona is a badger and a gazelle.
Saturday: The Third Day was super duper busy! I hung out with so many people and went to a few events! There was even a giant photoshoot for all the deer and other suits at an event called the Menagerie, it was so rad to see all these different fur suits in one giant room! And there were so many awesome photographers who were kind enough to devote their time to photographing our fluffy butts. I ended up meeting Mel the raccoon. She was my photographer for the deer group photo. She’s actually a local to Ohio and it was so rad to talk with her and see the pictures she took during the shoot. One of my friends went to the convention Incognito and they surprised the heck out of me with their spooky disguise. We ended up hanging out and snuck into floor wars before the others were let in, but you didn’t hear that from me haha! We ended up getting some pretty good seats though and it was a blast to watch all these amazing dancers compete. And I even got to meet HanzyPanzy AKA Hanzo, He even recognized me and said “Hey!”. He competed and honestly he was robbed. He did such an amazing job during his routine. I’m so disappointed he lost the first round. I ultimately ended up just hanging out with a bunch of friends and this was also the day I fursuited the most.
Monday: The Fifth Day I woke up at 7 AM and left the hotel at 8 AM. My flight was at 11:25 AM but I really didn’t want to be late and miss it. I ended up being 3 hours early so I just got some Starbucks (Juniper Late) and sat down and waited for my flight to come up. Finally it was time to board and I ended up sitting in the very last seat on the plane. It was super noisy and hot since I was so close to the engine, but I did pay the bare minimum for the seat so I can’t complain. We ended up arriving five minutes early and my father was there to pick me! I was glad to be home, but boy oh boy do I miss my friends and all the amazing people I got to meet during the convention. Here’s a Special thanks to all the people who made this convention so much fun! Thank you!
