So adorable!
Both of you!

Sorry 'bout being so self-focused at con! How are you recovering? I am having major culture shock! All the love! <3!!

it was great to see your beautiful smiling face (and awesome mask and costume!) around the con.

we're recovering pretty well... no con crud! (Jovino might be getting a bit of a cold but some of our friends were absolutely felled by the crud.)

I had a flash of insight while discussing the whole "I'm all sticky and no one will let me wash my hands" incident, and realized that the "little girl" thing I like to do could also be explored through furry (DURRR, YA THINK?) so that's exciting.

I joined a babyfur lj community and have been getting some really nice replies to my intro post. next year I want to offer a story hour in the cubhouse, and I also plan on bringing some of my coloring books, and some crayons to share. wheee!

we're really having to hit the ground running to get ready for wondercon at the end of Feb so that's pretty all consuming too.

Wondercon is awesome! You guys will have a booth there?? HOW COOL!!!!1!! I am so glad Bunnywarez is on the planet!! M and Jovino, WHOO HOO!
Oh, how interesting that the horrid spillage-incident could give you a new positive idea! And I am somewhat horrified that the consuite and such were so anal aboutt heir bathrooms!
I have mixed feelings about the babyfur fandom's purported practices. I totally understand the delight of the unconditional caring and love that are sought and given in the babyfur community, and the ability to FINALLY let yourself say what you want and need without being blocked by societal shame-makers wagging their fingers. It's awesome about how welcoming and agreeable and nice so many of the folks are, per your entry. The carebear room you showed a pic of was DARLING and SO creative and sweet! Someone (Sabot?) just totally made a welcoming, playful environment for people, just awesome.
And you having a story time sounds FANTASTIC! I'd love to come hear you read! What a treat!
For "babyfur" I can understand the draw of feeling you're being totally taken care of and can relinquish all responsibility. I'm just grossed out by poop and voluntary diaper-usage and sexplay with people acting like babies.(Strange that I am much more comfortable regarding sexplay with people acting like animals-it's fun!) I can see the parallels between babyfur and plain bondage, like the giving up of all control and just totally trusting someone else, and being ABLE to, and that part's really attractive. And I know when it comes down to it, People, and who they are, and how open their hearts are, and how they treat others are really the things that matter.
What do you think? Are babyfur parties friendly for everyone? Or just totally awesome, talented, gorgeous bunnies?

yes! we are vending at wondercon!! kinda scary, but super exciting. I'm hoping that pirates and ninjas will do well there.

later at a party I spoke to Bos'n (this year's consuite head and former party floor head) about the "no public bathroom in the con suite" and he was super apologetic, and said that he thought consuite should let people use that bathroom... or at least wash their hands. so I doubt this is going to be an issue in the future. and it really did show me who my friends are!

I think the babyfurs are really friendly and sweet. people are all like "OMG DIAPERS" but whatever. some of them wear 'em, some of them don't. if someone wants to wear a diaper I really do not care! for me, it's not a sexual thing (as a little girl, that's not really age-appropriate - but on the other hand, I'm not really a little girl! so even if it did go that way, what's the harm?) the aspects of the "little kid" thing *I* enjoy are things like coloring books, kids movies, plushies, playing "let's pretend" and forgetting about my responsibilities for a while. oh, and the foofy dresses!

it's kinda like, there is a difference between how things like bdsm, or burning man, or babyfurs look and what it's really like. mostly what it's really like is *fun* - at least, that's why I do what I do. I'm sure there are "diaper parties" but just like all the other yiffy stuff, it's private, invite only, behind closed doors. so, whatever. I'm too old for diapers (and to young to change them!) but I like to color and read stories to the littler kids. and you know if I bring shrinkydinks and a toaster oven they will LUFF me! ;-)

if you want, next year I'll bring you to the cubhouse and introduce you to some of my friends!
