Kumoricon Lite Mini Report

Kumoricon Lite was a one-day Min anime convention held at the Lloyds’ Center Double Tree hotel. Unlike 2015, it was held in the main hotel not the sweltering exposition center. I took my smaller travel Hello Kitty because it was a min con deserved a visit by my mini Hello Kitty.

I went out to for breakfast before heading to the convention. The line for pre reg was not bad and I attended the Let talk anime panel. I skipped out to the lip Synch Battle but attended the AMV comedy hour.  My only gripe was some of the comedy AMVs were not appropriate for all age’s event.  I headed out for diner but decided to go back to the hotel and continue my tradition to stay at the convention and talk to people until the kick us out at 11:00pm.

Over all it was a good day.

Furvana 2019 Something is Not Adding Up.

We just got the announcement of Furvana 2019 will be held not at Seattle but  at Ocean Shores  Convention center some 133 miles south of Seattle and 166 miles North of Portland. Ocean Shores is a small resort town. You can look at the convention center to see there not much to look at.

The reason in a twitter post explains why Ocean Shores and not a big city hotel or something on the I-5 corroder near Seattle:

From Twitter. I left out the poster.

To me the explanation comes across as political spin.

One reason a poster to Twitter said, is Furry Fandom  is still tarnish in Seattle, yet this has not stopped Anthro Nw obtaining hotel convention space last year. The only thing tarnish is RAIn.  Now let us remember Rain has been touting Furvana at an open meeting at Furlandia 2018. The Panel describes it as a new Seattle area furcon not mid Washington Coast furcon.  This makes me wonder about the claim Rain is not involved and if Seattle convention space providers will have nothing to do with them.  RAIn has some serious trusts issues that make them hard to find space in Seattle.

Incident at BLFC and the Fandom Loving Response

I was sad about the bullying that Emma had to face. For those who do not know Emma is a 10 year old furry that was harassed by a at the photo shoot at 2018 Biggest Little Fur Con. It was so bad Emma left in tears not wanting to be a furry again. Yes, it was one of the Wal-Mart fursuit head but this is no reason to go down and torment a kid. I am glad to see how the fandom came together and went above and beyond to resolve the issue. The showered her with art and arranged a private photo shoot with her. Some more popular furuiters like Telephone were present.
