Further Confusion 2007 was a blast, to put it succinctly. It was the first time I'd attended a furry con in its entirety. I did go to Califur last year, but it was only for a few hours on Dead Dog Sunday (no one was even fursuiting at that point) and I didn't know anyone there, so I spent a good portion of my time just kinda wandering -- it was sort of a "testing the waters" experience for me. But FC was TOTALLY different. I knew quite a number of people through Second Life, several of whom I'd already met at SLCC 2006. And the fursuiters and other cosplayers really added a sense of surreality to the convention... I was awed by the amount of work put into many of those costumes, as well as the unique personality each one (the costume AND the player) conveyed. I do wish I could have caught the fursuit parade on Sunday, but the group I was with was late getting back from lunch. :\ Fortunately, there appears to be a plethora of footage (of the parade as well as other FC schtuff) on the ubiquitous YouTube. YAY YOUTUBE.
