Would you attend Anthrocon?
« on: January 28, 2017, 11:32:59 pm »


So I was thinking today, and started watching Anthrocon 2016 videos and vlogs-Boy does time sure do go by fast!

I remember watching Anthrocon dancing contests back then when I first became a furry, and honestly it's still my goal to attend dance contests if I ever get a fursuit (I love dancing, and feel like I can express myself in a positive fun way)

Obviously, I'd love to go to Anthrocon, it seems so fun and I'd want to make new furry friends outside the online world-Plus it's great to get some fresh air every once in a while! :fox-:P: (Also I'm a sucker for furry merch)

Want do you think about Anthrocon? Would you go?

I would LOVE to go. Doubt I'll be able to go any time soon, though. It looks incredibly fun.

Oh- HECK YEAH!

I live wayyyy out in California so travel would be the hardest part, but honestly I could see myself going within the next few years.

I'd love to go, but I'd have to make it worthwhile! I'd likely only go a couple times in my lifetime, and I'd bring friends and stuff too to make the experience less hectic <X3

I'd LOVE to go, I never got around to watching the 2016 videos but watched a bunch of 2015 and before(yeah con vids are kinda my guilty pleasure o~o) Despite it being so big and me having a fear of crowds and large places it looks so fun! Its a bit of a distance for me and I hate being by myself so I'd only go if my friends or even family go with.
I'd never join a dance comp but that always my favorite videos to watch X3
Love to go with my SO too

Ack, I know... Crowds. But it's a furry convention, with giant fluffy animals to hug! We'll be okay! XD

I really want to go to Anthrocon! I love watching the con vids, they look so fun. I had plans to go last summer (because I was finally 18) but 16 year old me didn't realize that just because you're 18 it doesn't mean you have money or transportation or your parents stop caring where you are lol. I'd like to go in the next couple years though, maybe once I get my fursuit because I'd love to suit there. Pittsburg actually isn't terribly far from me (5-6 hour drive). We drove through it on our way to NYC so it's a definite possibility!

I'm only 16 so I can't exactly go. I have a friend who's friend's cousin planned a trip with a bunch of people going out from SLC Utah to Pittsburg last summer. He said he didn't want to go but afterwards he became a furry xD

I think he's lucky that he's at least been. Although I'm not exactly very comfortable in large crowds and social situations are just a stuttery mess for me personally.

If I DO go to a convention I'll end up going to Califur (my friend will actually be able to go to this once since he'll be with his grandpa over the summer in the same city as it.) Or I'd go to Denver for Rocky Mountain Fur Fest because those are all very close by for me.

Although it'll be a LONG while before I end up going to a convention. Maybe ... 4 years... I tend to take a while with things XD
I'm pretty content with the idea of my only interraction with the furry fandom being online or with some IRL friends.
I mostly found this fandom and became a part of it because I wanted to draw Anthro people XD

Like most others, I'm going to say heck yes. Con videos were what got me into the fandom, everyone just looks like they're having such an amazing time. Of course I'm across the country, but hopefully I'll go 2019 or 2020. I'm planning to save money for transportation, then meet up with a couple east coast friends there.

Heck yeah I would. I'd be happy just to go to a small con. Heck, I just saw my first fursuit in real life when I was at the renaissance fair (a little surprising, but ya know). It's my goal to go to a cool con and meet other furs, and to get my own fursuit someday ;o;

I'm not sure why but for me seeing my first fursuit IRL felt really special. I'm have no idea why, but I'll always remember it.

Seems kinda weird but its kinda the same for me, I saw my first (few)fursuit at an anime convention and it was just so cool and special to me idk why XD I still have pics!

Same here! I was super excited but a little nervous. His fursuit was really cute~
I think I still have a picture of it :3

I'd only go if I had a suit or partial suit honestly
Since I'll obviously be less scared of crowds behind a mask
It seems like a lot of fun
I wouldn't enter any contests
I'd just walk around, watch panels, and just have fun

I remember seeing my first fur suit when I was dragged along to SLC Comic-con 2015.

I had no idea what a furry was at the time and was looking at the suit trying to figure out what game or anime the character was from...
