Well well well the convention was awesome. The first day was so overwhelming I couldnt get sleep afterwards because there was so much I saw and my brain was overloaded with the fluffiness and hugs and stuff x)
I saw some pics and vids about fursuiters but seeing so many of them at one place for the first time irl, I couldnt keep my paws to myself and was basically running around hugging them. I admit at first it was a little hard to fit in because I wasnt really active but since I wasnt alone there but with Wupziditaet
it was going somehow. The second day I decided to stay the following days at the Estrel (which EF was taking place in) because the way back to home and other way around was sth that would have shortened my sleep even more. My friend met some French people which told him they spend 200€ at the artists' boths each year, hearing that at first I was gasping but once I have been ther I understood it really well..... Lets say it like that you can easily spend money there. I dont know whether it was because it was the first year within the Estrel but they had quite a few problems causing delays for main stage events all week long, but maybe that was due to having 2071 attendees instate of estimated 1600? Lets say it like that you could see the despair and exhaustiveness at the last day in many faces of Con Ops members, they did a great job and hey we had many conversations within the queue because of the delays ;D
Speaking of delays the Pawpet Show - Keepers Of The Light was delayed so long I dont even know many hours it was, I guess 3-4 hrs. However this delay was worth to be endured, the story was really nice and the effort put into it was tremendous! You know there were little flyers around the place which changed daily and after the show they made sense xD
However however the last night of the convention I was to return home and as I was waiting at the platform I had to suppress the urge to talk to the strangers around me, EF made me feel comfortable just pulling of a conversation with people around me... that was done in 3 days. Even worse was when i was back home and sit in front of my Pc for checking my e-mails and such all of a sudden I felt lonely XD The weeks and months before I didnt gave a crap about it but this all showed me how much I enjoyed those 5 days. Those 5 days were the best of the year so far and there arent many things that can surpass this event. I miss the fursuiters and other fluffs already but now I know what to do next year EF 21!
