|My friend and I at the convention! Isn't he cute?|
As I let you all know in my last post, I had been gone all last weekend at a convention. Specifically, I was at Megaplex, a furry convention in Orlando, FL. It's a rather small convention, but it was still awesome! I went there mainly to sell my
Badges? Fursonas? What is this madness?
For those of you who are a bit confused with my terminology, basically people will commission someone to draw their character (sometimes known as a "fursona," or a person's furry persona, although I don't personally like the term) as a small laminated piece of art that they can wear around. In the furry online community, people are mostly known as their character, so a badge helps people recognize each other in real life when they only know each other from an online community. I personally like to buy badges of my character because it is art that is specifically of my character, and is usually a reasonable price and size. Most badges are between three to six inches and laminated so they are easy to wear and protected from the hazards of a convention.
So tell me about the fandom?
But isn't furry about-?
|Guess who else showed up? That's right!|
Also, My Little Pony is there.
All in all the convention was awesome, and did a lot to re-spark my desire to become a professional artist!
|Oh so professional!|
