Califur 8 - The Roaring Twenties - June 1-3, 2012

www.califur.com/2012

June 1-3, 2012 at the Irvine Mariott
Irvine, California

Rocky Mountain Fur Con 2012 was going to be my first con, but I'm planning on going to Califur now. (Still planning on going to RMFC) I don't know what to expect, aside from 600-900 attendees and three days of fursuits, furries, and fun.

Who else plans on making this con?

I'm going. :) I haven't decided if I'm going to stay at the Irvine Marriott, If I can't find someone to share a room with
I'll probably end up staying at a Motel 6.

Last year I ghosted a couple days. Hopefully this year provided I have a job and get time off for it I will be going. No room though I'll just drive unless I am living in San Diego.

Coming off FurIdaho, I'm pretty stoked about Califur now. It'll be a much different experience and I'll have a new set of furries I'd like to meet. I'm going to see about booking the hotel tomorrow. I'm commissioning my badge for it now. Whoo! nine and a half weeks to go!

Wow, I feel PCD and I haven't even gone to a con. I really wish I could go, but I won't be able to make it. Have fun for me though. Someday, I will arrive at a con!

I paid close attention to the MFF thread on this site last year and felt that feeling of missing out. I'm probably gonna be bummed I'm not doing Anthrocon...this year...

I'd be fine with just going to a small fur con, but Anthrocon is definitely on my bucket list. It's probably more fun if you go with a RL friend. Have you done that yet, Grizztof? I may go with a friend when I finally do go to one.

Registered for Calfur! Will be rooming with the Grizztof. Should be there on Thursday night, staying for the whole weekend. Can't wait to get a bunch of suit time. Hope to see a few old friends, as well as make some new friends. :)

New friends, especially a roommate. We need one more for our "quiet, non-party" room.

Saturday night at Calfur!. Hanging out with Grizztof, and a few furs. Also helped Grizz make his duct tape dummy for his fursuit! :o

I missed it. After the fursuit parade, had some high quality pictures taken, then had to reset in the room, and the pool. :) That's the thing with cons, no matter how much I try, I always miss something! :D

Been home for a few hours now, another con in the books. It was fun and awesome, plenty of suit time, and it was great meeting a bunch of new furs. One thing I noticed, there were a large number of greymuzzles. This con has roots that go way back. It was a bit more laid back from RMFC, MFF. Many people come to this one to see old friends. There seemed to be plenty of room meetups (there were no room parties, nope, none.  ;) ) Knowing only a hand full of attendees, and I don't go around looking for room meets, so I spent a bunch of time with Grizztof, and a few others I already knew. Sunday was kind of quiet, but as I had a few days to run around in suit, I got dragged into hanging with some of the suiters that were left. 8) The Cabaret show was a bit "spicy, adult only" but I thought it was fun. Some of the acts were good, a few were great, many were OK. I really would like to see a show where more performers actually did the singing, kind of like a "Furries Got Talent" There is plenty of talent in the fandom. People, not in suit, lip syncing, fake instrument playing is a bit boring.

Grizz was a great room mate, I'd recommend him for anyone wanting a non rowdy room share. It was also fun to cover him in duck tape!

Over all, I would go again, but it will be a "drive by" con. I won't likely plan on going again, it will just have to happen.
