Two Questions~!
« on: June 06, 2012, 04:53:28 am »
Apparently, I like asking questions in two  :D! Anyways, this could ~possibly~ be in Convention Talk o.o but, eh. Okay, I'm feeling lazy right now and don't want to go look for myself lol, especially if someone here wants to help with this first question xD!

Uhm, what is the closest Furry Convention that is by Nebraska >_>? I would LOVE to go to a Furry Convention at least once in my lifetime xD but right now even so, I know I can't "travel" outta here...so, maybe if something was really close then I could attend something a bit later.

Second question, I've only been to an Anime Convention lol, this year will be my fourth. The Anime Convention is like just a few miles o.O away from my house, I swea~r! Anyways...What all is there at the Furry Conventions? I mean, I've watched lots of YouTube furry videos and stuffs about the conventions, but I see a lot of Furs just hanging out and Furry parades a lot of the time. Could~ someone fill me in on what type of stuffs there may be there =p? I mean, I know all conventions are different and stuffs like o.o Scifi, fantasy, games, anime, furry...all those xD but still. I'm a big Anime lover, how different is a convention from that? O_O (I know, probably LOTS lol)

Would you like to stalk my DeviantArt
Or YouTube xD?

Moved to Convention forum as the topic is better suited here.

Off the top of my head, I would guess Rocky Mountain Fur Con in Denver, CO. Then there is Midwest Fur Fest in Chicago.

RMFC is a smaller con, hotel is nice, plenty of cheap food in walking distance, nice pool and hot tub. :) Usual fair for a furcon, panels, dealers den, artists alley, parade, fursuit games, dances, lots of wandering around, meeting friends.

MFF is a big con, great hotel, but no pool. Cheap food is not as accessible, but there was a hospitality room last year with free snacks (if you hit it in time  ;) ). I would suggest going at sponsor level or higher. This got me into the brunch with the guest of honor. A fine buffet, (now I'm drooling for smoked salmon!) as well as a bag of swag! It is an awesome con, you get plenty of panels, events hosted by some of the more famous furs in the fandom, big parade. The dealers den is big, and there were several rooms set aside as artists alleys. Another bonus, several Furtopians go to this con! We had an awesome pizza night meetup! 8)

I'd hope to make it to both this year, but then again, I'd go to just about any con if I could. :D
