Guns 'n' Ratties

Yes, I went to MidFur X and I had a great time! I will share more thoughts later but for me the highlight of the con was getting to perform my very own skit for the first time. I'd been thinking of little else for the past several weeks and I put my all into it. Not all of it worked out quite how I visualised it but overall I'm pretty pleased with it and the audience was very kind. Hopefully a better quality version will show up on YouTube in due course. I'm hoping to take this skit on the road. Next stop: Anthrocon!


It doesn't show up well on this video but at the end Rattus's guitar overheats and starts smoking.

You have some balls to do that. Hope you enjoyed performing it. Though yes, it does appear to need some level of polish.

Glad to read you enjoyed Midfur. Somewhat jealous, must admit.

Aw, so cute! You make a great solo act! *grins*
Instead of a air guitar band, you could form a "hair guitar" band!"
Yeah, you can use that phrase, I gift it to you! :)

I don't have the nutz to perform on stage in front of a live audience!
Great job!!

You definitely get an A for effort!! I think they really loved it, you were pretty awesome.

I've never tried air guitar in a fursuit. That must be a challenge. It's hard to aim for subtle mechanics of actual playing, so any fretboard gestures will do, I guess.

Was the smoking the result of actual effects added to your skit?

Electra and I put a lot of effort into making a Wii guitar issue smoke. We got it, but the end result was not really as much smoke we would have wanted. It was visible to at least some of the audience members, but not enough to show up on the video.

I was looking for photos of MidFur and first looked on their website. You are mentioned there by name, did you know?
"The No Talent Night! Marko the Rat playing air guitar! GOLD!"
I'm still looking for pics, though...

I hadn't seen that. That was very kind. I did find one photo of my performance but I am still on the hunt for more.

I second Jimwolf's opinion. The jacket was a nice touch.
