My response to Local Convention COVOD-19 Policy

I have a big announcement  for the rest of 2021 and 2022 and beyond. I will not be attending  any  fan conventions  in 2021 and beyond until Kumoricon, Orycon, RCCC, Anthro Northwest   come to their  senses and stop forcing  unnecessary  medical test or  divulge private  medical information as a  requirement to attend a convention. It is wrong  for those who are and force  others  to surrender their freedom and privacy for three  days of fun deserve nether. I do believe  health  and safety is the issue but the 900 LB ogre call government  Lockdown. There are those who willing to  throw other’s privacy   under the bus to keep the lockdown ogre at bay.

Do not  get me wrong I am centrist  in the  vaccine debate. I am against any government  mandate but  realize for me and other  the vaccine is needed.  I  frown on both  force mandates and the anti-vaccination crowd. I can poke hole in both arguments. Some people  may  not need vaccination while others  it a life saver. I do not believe  the false narrative  of herd immunity. It may not happen We just need to live with COVID-19. Private organization can make  rules regardless how  bad as well of  my choice not to attend.

Foer those who are putting  such restrictions in the name  of protecting immune depressed and people with auto immune condition like me, you are doing us no favor. I must board a bus and max trains  with vaccinated  non-vaccinated I am still here.

I  am willing to help support alternative  and events. The rules will be  just use  common since and that is it.

Some thoughts about Coronavirus and Fan Conventions.

This post is  a response to a question about the future of fan Conventions  in light of  COVID-19.

This is a speculation about the future of conventions if we can control COVID-19. I use my experience as a Sanrio fan.  One option is similar to Hello Kitty Friendship Festival and the recent Hello Kitty Around the World tour. In each case one bought a ticket for a session lasting two to four hours.  Only a fixed amount of tickets was sold per session. The session could have a show, panel, displays and a trip though the dealer’s den.

How to Simulate a Furry Convention at Home

How to Simulate a Furry Convention at Home (CCP Virus Edition)

1- 11 By Acton

 

The inspiration for this came from  a joke how to simulate Navy Shipboard Life at sea. http://www.midwaysailor.com/military/shiplife.html

2020 note I originally wrote this almost  10 years ago. I decided to revise this in the light many con postponed or  canceled because of the of the  Coronavirus

 

  1. Rearrange furniture, in the bedroom place one bed, couch, and TV; this is the hotel room. Designate other areas for panels. Because of Stay at homes will be phones or laptops showing YouTube panels.  The required simulation events are opening and closing ceremonies, one fursuiting 101 panels, and optional furry sexuality panel at night. Be sure to schedule at least six virtual panels. At the start of  the simulation flip the start of panel one with panel six and cancel panel three. Start panel four  15 minutes late and run into the time slotted for panel five.

 

  1. Invite three other friends to join along; one of the friends must not bathe during the simulation weekend. Unless they are your roommates, you may use Zoom or skype.

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.
