Much fun and fluffy mayhem. I am exhausted. Have GOT to try and grab a room and do the whole thing next year. I think with a room I'll be more likely to stop and rest (plus can drop stuff off in the room instead of having to cart it with me the whole time).
Got a new tail that matches the suit better than my yarn tail. Have some modifications I want to try and make to the head once I figure out exactly what I need to do - keeps slipping forward until the eye holes are at my nose and I can't see out of it. So right now that is limiting my time in the suit as much as heat, because as soon as I sweat at ALL my vision goes away because mask goes floop and doesn't want to stay up. XD I suspect my forehead is too shallow or something or I don't have enough brow to hold the dang thing, I dunno. Suggestion was made by Holly to see about yoinking the autofit mechanism from a construction hat and seeing if I can attach that to the inside. I'm also pondering counterweights of some kind to attach to the back.
Fox Amoore himself was not, in fact there. His manager said another con booked him first so she's going to try and get him to AnthrOhio next year. But I got 3 of his CDs, 2 of which she said were going out of print so I would want to get them now if at all.
The mask was a HUGE hit. I swear I felt like the belle of the ball in that thing. Everyone loved it. I had to take lots of breaks but I had a blast. Photos coming as soon as I can catch my breath. kitsunehoruri
took a couple of me with my camera and I took some of the cake decorating contest (along with my terrible entry LOL) but other than that I didn't get any as most of the suits I wanted pictures of were walking by as people were taking photos of *me*, or at least when I was in suit with paws that couldn't fumble the camera well, so I kinda missed everybody. LOL I need to start hunting on all my online haunts for mention of AnthrOhio, though, because there were a few groups shots with me and some other folks and I want to collect them all.
On a side note for some reason the headless lounge smelled like waffles toward the end of the day. I assume it was somebody's fursuit de-funking spray but man it smelled like actual waffles.
Now my feet hurt. I had a blast, though, and the positive attention while masked was a bit of an ego boost that I think I needed. Also possibly made some new friends though good lord my head was spinning so much I hope I can remember names. o.o;;
*edit* Oh good one of new frands is already watching. XD Hello to AyalaDeer
who was very kind to my tired ass.
