The Convention: Furlandia
The Place: Sheraton Hotel Portland Airport
The dates: May 22-24, 2015
Furlandia is a furry convention now in its third year. Both My Kaiju Hello Kitty ,and Chococat plush were my companions.
Friday and Saturday: Not much in the way of panels I wanted to attend except for my own Beyond the Fur con and Fury and Anime. I did go to part of Repo: The Genetic Opera out of morbid curiosity but it did not show much media. Still I was very tired Friday to where I feel asleep in my car after parking at home. Saturday after my traditional fuel-up breakfast at Home town Buffet. I headed back and did contribute to the Have you come out as Furry panel? I did a lot of socializing and enjoyed having the Joker of the True Joker Show at our convention. It was nice talking to him at dinner, getting know a person new to furry fandom, but like me goes to many of the local conventions.
Sunday: Not much to do except try my hand at Star Fox and the closing ceremony. I did bought a book and an art poster.
The good having a local fur con, having being blessed by the Jokers attendance and the hotel service was outstanding.
The bad: again I felt the quantity of panels were sparse. It a bigger problem than Furlandia, in which deserves a separate blog post. Second a pirate theme and Furlandia did not invite PDX Yar? Finally perhaps because of a lack of evening events the con seemed to petered out around 8:00pm each night I only seen a small number at the dances.
Even with its faults, I still enjoyed Furlandia and hope for a better 2016.
