As is my tradition with attending conventions, I tend to work them too. This year, I worked in Operations for Puma and his staff. It was a different experience, and overall I enjoyed being in more of an attendee-facing role at this year's MFF.
As I mentioned in a previous comment, Raptor Red was there, in a new version of his fursuit. He was rather expressive, which is normal for him:
The fursuit parade had 574 fursuiters this year:
On Friday evening, Duncan da Husky and Takaza J. Wolf had a proper civil union done, as those are now legal in Chicago. This was most excellent!
Somewhere in there, kanehusky thought he would be clever and borrow my White Mage hoodie and tail. So I promptly borrow his fursuit head and paws. Then we spent the evening confusing a whole lot of people! We need to do this again sometime.
Then it was back to work, followed by taking even more pictures of fursuiters.
The con ended wherein I had a few drinks on Sunday evening and was followed around by a couple of Germans for a bit:
The rest of my pictures, as usual, can be found on Flickr.
The verdict? A++, would totally back up the con chair in a knife fight.
Next con for me is Furry Connection North in the spring. I hope I'll see all of you there!
