11:21 am - MLP meet up and sing along

summer_1981
As most of you know FWA is right about the corner and that means that a lot will be going on that weekend.  Among other things, FWA has it's number of attendees that fall under the brony category.   As we all know, 11 year old Michael Morones is in the hospital holding on for his life.   This is all due to bullying because he likes Pinkie Pie and the show.

So what I was planning on doing was thinking of having a meet up where all of us bronies come together and sing songs from the show.  Even further, I most recently started my own video blog series.  One of the areas that I like to cover is all things MLP.  So I thought we could come together and cover

1. The effects of bullying
2.We sing songs
3. Show off artwork
4. Maybe have a talent show

If you are interested, please, please, please...contact me via furry affinity @ Summershy

I feel so horrible! At FWA I had an artist make a badge for me of my dragon/cat, Phineas, and I can't remember that artist's name. The artist had a table in the dealer's den located next to 2 Gryphon (facing the table as a buyer, artist was seated to his left). He actually dragged me over to point out the awesomeness of her art.

Can anyone tell me the artist's name?! I just want to see if they have artwork posted online and watch/stalk them. I really did like the art they had displayed at FWA.

current mood: bouncy

1:52 pm - Head Refurb?

wubscaribou
Does anyone here do refurbs? I don't even know if it's worth the refurb at this point. x.x Cast on a resin base, resin is a bit thin than I think it's supposed to be (but I don't really know resin.) Not properly hinged (I don't even want the jaw to move, but it'd be nice if I could actually get a straw in the mouth,) glued seams, hard nose (I want a soft one) and possibly a slight change to pattern, head has no padding inside either and is slightly uncomfortable to wear (that's probably something I can fix), and is a bit big.

Pretty much what I would need done is all new fur, new nose and someone to either hinge the jaw or make it static but slightly open.

If it's not even worth the refurb, let me know too.

12:56 am - Have you seen this hyena??

lazer_the_hyena
Hey there everyone! I went to FWA (As usual, lol), and got to suit a bit. I know a few people snapped pics (There was someone outside the dance on Saturday I know, and a few other folks.), so I wanted to see if anyone could send those pictures my way.

This is the suit in question: pjresize

Would love any pictures you could dig up, I was wearing different clothes at different times, this was just my pajama time outfit, lol.

FWA 2013

TL:DR Version

Look @ the hilarious "Brine Jr's FWA Adventure" photo collection
(only 46 images, really quick browse)
*Mature audiences 17+ suggestive themes*

2ND BEST FWA for me personally.
BEST FWA as far as amount of parties and EPICness of parties.

the elevator situation wasn't really that bad.

the hotel staff were really nice, although uninformed about what was
going on in the hotel/policies etc, compared to the horrendous staff
AT BOTH versions of the Sheraton FWA was hosted at in the past is was a
breath of fresh air.

~THE NEW HOTEL~

its funny how many trash on this hotel, but SERIOUSLY which of the
previous hotels did you honestly like better ?
the Sheraton with the Stairs of doom ? (tumbles the stairdragon)
don't forget, there were no resturants within walking distance...

the Hilton ? Retarded expensive for mediocre rooms

the "newer" sheraton with 2 towers (north/south) that literally
split the con attendees in half, and had ZERO cell reception
in the con space because it used to be a PARKING GARAGE and is
95% steel and concrete ?

====

this isn't much of a con post (i know) but the REAL journal entry is
on my FA https://www.furaffinity.net/journal/4460850/
gotta give you a warning, its SUPER Long, but it does have a lot
of shout outs =3

enjoy

11:33 am - #FWA2013 Con Report

kovudalion
Well another FWA has come and gone, overall the convention was a good experience and the board/staff/volunteers of FWA have gone out of their way to make the experience a pleasant one. There were a few items that made the weekend less than optimal but I will address these later.

The good, let’s start with the positive:

The Hotel: This is a very nice facility, aside from the elevators and subsequent cascading events from the elevators I find this hotel to be one of the nicest the convention has chosen.

9:53 am - FWA!

violentdragking
Well, we're all home and hopefully rested. I had a great weekend, with just a few comments!

1. The elevator situation. Considering that there's not many rooms on each floor, and a huge amount of floors, I'm not sure how the elevator problem can be dealt with...but my problem is actually with the way people were acting on elevators. I know we furries tend to "furpile" into the elevator with as many people as possible, but I saw many cases where regular folks staying in the hotel would get pushed around and get stuck in a ridiculously full elevator, squashed in the corner. In one instance I even saw a group of guys pushing an elderly woman to the side. Seriously - this is not the way we want people to view our convention! I know we all wanted to get an elevator, but we need to be respectful of the people we're sharing the hotel with.

The worst thing I saw, though, was when I was waiting for an elevator standing next to a fursuiter (who had been there before me, and we'd all been waiting awhile) and when an elevator with space came...two members of con staff pushed past the suiter and said they were tired of waiting. Yeah, we were all tired of waiting - but really? Fursuiters get first priority on elevators, in my opinion, and staff should know better. I don't know who they were - I didn't see their badges or recognize them - but if it was you, know that it was seen and not appreciated. Again, some common decency and elevator etiquette would have made the situation a lot better.

2. The heat! Oh lord, the hotel was overly warm and stuffy. I'm used to being hot in fursuit, but man, I'd get in suit and go down in the elevators, and head straight for the fursuit lounge. I'm not sure what staff can do about that if the hotel isn't willing to cool things off, except perhaps get some large fans to place in con space as well as the headless lounge.

3. Drunken convention goers. I'm not sure what FWA rules are about this, just that I know I saw a lot of extremely drunk and very obnoxious furries - not always late at night, either. I heard firsthand stories of drunks trying to go where they weren't supposed to (hotel staff areas) and then complaining about getting in trouble with security. This is another one of those things where we don't want our convention to look badly to the people sharing the hotel with us...but frankly, I'm sure I'm not the only furry who doesn't appreciate having to deal with drunk idiots in the con spaces. I mean, there's a little bit drunk which isn't a problem, but then there's make a jackass of yourself drunk (no offense to my donkey friends) and I saw a lot of the latter this weekend. Maybe next year I'll just carry around a squirt gun filled with ice water to keep the drunks away...(kidding, kidding, but it's tempting.)

-------------

That being said, I've been going to FWA since 2007 and this was my best one yet! I had a blast, and it was great seeing everyone. I've been trying to look through all the pictures people are putting up, but if you guys have a picture of the kangaroo fursuit with goggles, I'd love to have them.

9:09 am - My FWA Experience

frostcat
Hey everyone in the LJ community. I just wanted to say thank you to the entire staff that worked day and night for making FWA that awesome. Especially for my first time being there.  There were a lot of new furs that I've never met before and the ATL is that awesome.  The arcade room was epic with the arcade tables to select your own games on, plenty of flat screens and computers, DDR replica pads, and an over sized Beatmainia keyboard. It's been a good year that I've last been to a furcon, so it was fun roaming around the hotel and city in suit.  Especially being a part of the fursuit games and getting the St. Patrick's Day parade to stop and get pictures of us.  Talk about role reversal.  And the dances...words can not express really.  Though I've missed Friday's sets, Saturday and Sunday's were incredible.

A Small CritiqueCollapse )

I still appreciate the awesomeness of the FWA staff.  Not to many cons are accepting when it comes to unique raver gear.  My Glowstaff is always the talk of con from "Awesome shiny!" to "URMAGERD WERPON!" FWA are among the few cons that can allow my glowstaff to spin about responsibly during the dance.  For that, this feline's grateful.

My overall experience was definitely something to truly remember.  Especially getting the respectable high fives and fist bumps from other fandoms and hotel staff after prowling around the DragonCon hotels too.  Definitely worth returning to should I get the time and approval. *shakes fist at real life*

As a token for reading my post here are the pictures and videos I've taken while at the con. Somehow Photobucket likes to have the pictures you upload display backwards...meh.

4:20 am - News on Parking Rates??

sleepiesheep
Has anyone heard any news on special rates for the con parking at the Westin?? Haven't heard much. Called the Westin myself and they said nothing has been posted yet about a rate for the con. Just trying to finalize plans and arrange my budget. Would like to at least know if rates are being negotiated with the hotel. Any news would be awesome! :3 Thanks ~KofiSheep

11:33 am - Looking for a ride to FWA

paradiseforlorn
Hey guys!

Due to an unforseen accident with a friend of ours who was our ride we are finding that :IconJTigerclaw: and I are in need of a ride to FWA.[our friend is fine thank goodness! :) ] We live in the Charlotte area [will give addy in Note] We would be going from Thursday to Monday.
We are both suiters, so we'll both have a smallish tote each, a guitar, a small table fan and a few odds and ends i'm sure. But we will try to pack as lightly as possible.
Of course we would pitch in for gas and parking.

So if you, or anyone you know could give a ride to a couple of kitties? That would be Great!

Thanks :)

-Kat

current mood: hopeful
