to my Anthro Northwest haul! While overall a fantastic experience, the Artist Alley suffered from major scheduling conflicts. The patron dinner I was supposed to attend (as part of my registration) began a half-hour after Artist Alley opened; I opted out. The fursuit parade, talent show, charity auction, and closing ceremonies all overlapped our meager three hours per night. And because our room hosted other events throughout the day, we had to set up and break down nightly.
All that said, I wouldn’t trade the journey for anything, and I plan on applying for the Dealers Den next year. Highlights included meeting some of my favorite artists and catching up with acquaintances and old friends. My table neighbors were wonderful, and I hope we can see each other again at future cons! 💕
Huge bonuses: staying overnight at Rain Forest Resort Village with @creelweb
at Lake Quinault before we continued to the Tree of Life / Tree Root Cave, Hoh Rainforest, and Hurricane Ridge as we circled the Olympic peninsula before the con. I even learned how to drive onto a ferry! Catherine offered to help me run my table, and acted as my navigator during our travels. You might be sick of hearing it, Catherine, but thank you. Thank you ever so much. ^__^
Special shoutout to @crazdude
for being genuine, upfront, and compassionate with their critiques and praise. I am thrilled to have met you both! <333 Same goes to @aussieak @keeatah
and Kardi for your company, conversation, and fun! Many thanks again to Farren, Lexicon, Kujura, and Frack for commissioning me.
