    FWA 2013, you going?

    If you haven't heard of it... http://www.furryweekend.com/

    I can't wait for this year's FWA! The Westin is such an awesome hotel, especially since they re-furbished it so its all pretty inside. This will be my second con and I can't wait. I'll be on Artist's Alley a lot doing badges and junk so stop by, I'll have plenty of badges with my dragon so you won't miss me. Or maybe you will I am short.

    Anyways, I was just curious to see if anybody here was going too. :3

    I'll never understand furry conventions. I shall not participate.

    Well one plus side of cons are the hotel rates. Almost half the normal price to stay at a fancy hotel in the middle of Atlanta. <3 Even if you don't really go to the con its still cool to hang out in Atlanta for a few days. Plus the Cheesecake Factory is only one MARTA ride away. XD

    I usually like going to conventions that house celebrities and such. For furry cons, I don't believe any notable figures speak at them (at least that I'm aware of). That and fursuiters. They freak me out.

    That is true, I know there is this one guy that looks strikingly like Skrillex goes. That's about it though. XD The fursuits got me too at first but after awhile I just gave up and accepted it. Even did a con bage for one while I was in Artist Alley. I do understand where you are coming from though. There was this one dude fursuiting/cosplaying Ratchet who freaked me out, His head was too big for his body. >_>

    Yeah. As an artist, I can understand the benefits of attending one of those cons. Best of luck with your table and have fun.



    Be wary of thieves and strap your demos down appropriately.

    Thanks and I will!

    Don't worry, I keep everything under lock and key.

    I'm kinda surprised no one else is going, or said that they were. XD

    I wish I could go to cons in general, but my fear of crowds and general social anxiety is too great.
    FWA sounds fun though.
