Best Brisbane furry con ever!

It's only the first night and already I can make that claim! ^_^ As promised, I suited up (this was probably the first day I was feeling decent after wasting weeks fighting off a stubborn cold) and entertained some of the furries at the BBQ, but brisdrake took it a step further by taking mistystriker and I for a walk through the market stalls at South Bank. This was my first time ever fursuiting out in public. It was scary, but rewarding. Even though ristin didn't feel up to suiting, I'm glad he was right there by my side. I'm not sure I could have done it without him being there. I'm really grateful to Drake and Foxy for organising RivFur and giving me the courage to do my first ever public fursuiting. And thank you to Misty and Bingo for the awesome name badge!

(Thanks also go out to ozkangaroo for making some last minute mods to the suit and getting it back to me on time.)

EDIT: hendikins has already put up photos from the event on his gallery.

I'm sorry you didn't know, but it hasn't been kept a secret. I've mentioned it from time to time on my LJ and it's been on Brisfurs a lot and I expect on the OzFurry mailing list too.

*coughs* I'm not on the OzFurry mailing list anymore after the "huge" spat that went back and forth years ago (and you need to be part of #ozfurs which I was banned not only from the channel but Furnet altogether) and I tend to try to avoid the Brisfurs LJ community because I have no idea what comments might get flung my way.

Lets just say my past is riddled with stuff thats related to the Australian furries that I don't want to devolge about.

Ever consider simply lurking?

May as well. Might be interesting to keep an eye on whats happening in the local area.

Who knows, people might look at my differently since a few have seen me after several years.

I had no idea there even was a Brisbane furry con ???? I take it this was just recently ? Where was it talked about or advertised ??? I totally would have gone.

I am on furstralia.org and I don't recall it being mentioned on there at all.

Just for the record, no, I'm not on OzFurry either. I gave up on it when it was nothing but flamewars, and I was a founding member. Let's be honest; I don't exactly have my finger on the local furry pulse, so it couldn't have been all that closely guarded a secret. :) I don't know what Furstralia is at all so I can't comment on that, except to point out that the official RivFur website was there.
