Cats and Dogs, Living Together!
United States
We're a pair of 80's kids that love video games, comic books and fantasy art! Add a dash of anime and you've got a whirlwind of artistic power the world has not yet begun to fathom.
We dabble in almost all mediums of expression to further our goal of becoming great artists; Traditional? Check. Digital? Got it. Costuming? Yups. Sculpture? Getting there! Underwater basket weaving...eeeh...not so much!

o Luminary and I went to the awesome Texas Furry Fiesta and it was a lot of fun! This was our first trip to Texas ever, and our first time at TFF as vendors - so you can imagine how excited we were to visit Texas - not to mention meet up with old friends and get to know some new ones! Here's a Convention Wrapup for TFF - we totally hope to be back in 2015!

Thursday: We pack all our merchandise and our single small suitcase into our super-powerful beast of a Mazda and head on down to the convention. Aside from one 30-minute detour (That took us through Chetopa - which Frisket assumed was 'Chetopia, the Source of all Chets') we arrived somewhat almost on schedule and got to the dealer's room with a little bit of time to spare. Frisket ran into some super awesome furs that were super helpful in securing things to his cart with a ratchet strap - he was so impressed that he vowed to buy one before the next con! We ran into the OzFoxes and were happy to see we were right across the aisle from them - as well as next door to lagarto  lagarto who is always cool to see. Luminary and I vow to get up early and build a hugearfin' booth of awesome in the morning.

Friday: We get up early and head down to the dealer's room. After a bit of building and making of large metal structures, I send Luminary out to take a break and get some breakfast while I pretend to know what I'm doing. After she returned with some tasty cinnamon cakes, we finished the booth barely in time for the waves of happy congoers (as is tradition.) We met so many furs in such a short time! We had no real frame of reference for Texas, having never been there, so the amount of folks we interacted with on the first day alone was tremendous! We caught up with our friends purplepardus  purplepardus and vanblod  vanblod and made plans for dinner.

After the dealer's room closed, we met up with the Moo's and headed for a theme restaurant nearby - finding out it was packed and super busy, Purple totally won the Diplomacy roll and the group headed to the nearby Hooters for wings. We were clearly not their average clientele, and it was our waitress' second day on the job, but I like to think we didn't cause too much of a ruckus. :) After dinner we explored the hotel and were shocked to see an old abandoned discotheque being used as the con suite. Please re-read that last sentence. AN OLD, ABANDONED DISCOTHEQUE. Once it got super late we headed back upstairs to our room to dream of solving mysteries in it.

Saturday: Not such an early day today. Another metric boatload of furs storms the dealer's room and we begin to run out of stuff! The Husky Plushies we love so much begin to disappear, and our walls of tails get some serious gaps - but we held. Luminary left to tromp through the fursuit parade as Rusty the Gnoll, and the fearsome (yet friendly!) gnoll adventurer drew quite a crowd. We finished out the day and went exploring again, this time ending up in the gaming room with vanblod  vanblod and playing the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game after Frisket spent a long time teaching some other furs how to play the Dungeons and Dragons Castle Ravenloft Board Game. much fun was had, monsters were slain, but we ended up having to cut our time short as we needed to be able to function on Sunday.

Sunday: Another boom-pow day in the dealer's room, and once the show was over, we had very little left to pack up! We said our goodbyes to our friends (including Purple, who was sporting a new Cow Hat made by Luminary!) and headed out of Dallas. We stopped at a new Hampton Inn in McAlester, OK for the night - and after many shenanigans (Including the fact that McAlester, OK doesn't exist on a recently updated Garmin; a Taco Bell that killed cars; an orbiting McDonald's that couldn't be accessed by mere mortals, and the Mystery of the Closed Goddamn Hot Tub (Spoiler; the lady behind the counter did it, that lying jerk) we ended up toasting our super fun trip to Dallas, enjoying the peace of the hotel, and journeying on in the morning.

Monday: We arrived home at Hysterical HQ at 5:00pm, the earliest we've ever been home from a con. We unloaded the car, gave our cats big hugs, and settled in to watch Star Trek: TNG on Netflix with some Chinese food. All in all it was an amazing, laugh-a-minute trip, and both Luminary and I would love to go to Dallas again next year. What a fun, great con.

Thanks again to all the folks who stopped by, to everyone who talked with us, and, especially, all the kind words! SO many furs took it upon themselves to compliment Luminary's hard work, and that is so appreciated by both of us. To our friends the con attendees, and especially the always present, super-helpful staff, Thanks for making our TFF experience awesome.

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! ♥

Hello there! I'm the physician that was accompanying the pirate 'roo at the faire. Nice to see you guys here! Wonderful costumes indeed. I have a partial scalesuit that I was going to wear but after some test runs I figured it wouldn't be comfortable to walk around in all day. I'm going to have a go at a second attempt soon, hopefully. But until then parading around as a plague doctor is enough fun. :D

Hello! Nice to meet you, too. Glad you had fun as a plague doctor. :D We were lucky enough that it was cool enough outside that we could wear our costumes longer than we normally could. :)

Yeah, it was rather chilly. I had a hard time keeping warm but I'm sure once I get a proper suit finished I'll be quite alright. XD
