Well, ristin and I are back from this year's Mardi Gras (in Australia, when we say "the Mardi Gras" we all know which one we mean) and it was great! Unlike last year, we are pumped about going again next year, which will also be the 30th anniversary of the Mardi Gras. Congrats to Dustan and Loopy (and Tigertim and Bear and many others) for all the hard work they put in. It was because of them that we were able to show off our beloved fursuits and entertain so many people. Riding on a truck made it so much easier to get through the march and the whole thing felt like it went by quicker than last year. The only down side is that we can't get up close and hug members of the audience when we feel like it. Unfortunately, we can't have it both ways because the Mardi Gras has strict rules about not going to and from the floats due to safety concerns.
I know you're all very keen to see photos. I'll post what I can of the Mardi Gras (which is not much) and of Tristram's adventures in Sydney when I'm able to; probably some time this evening but proper photos of our float etc will have to wait for the media furry. I might be able to snaffle some video later for porsupah or anyone else who prefers moving pictures. Negotiations are under way. ^_^
