Q: Where are you staying?
A: The Westin! I don't know how much longer our luck with booking Westin rooms will last, so I'm savoring it while we can.
Q: What day are you getting there and how long are you staying?
A: We arrive Wednesday evening and leave Monday morning.
Q: Who will you be rooming with?
A: My partner Mika!
Q: How are you traveling?
A: Chugga chugga choo choo
Q: What is your gender?
A: Female (she/her)
Q: How tall are you?
Q: What do you look like?
A: Here's my fursuit! I haven't actually decided on what outfits I want to bring, though... aaaaa such indecision! I guess it'll be a surprise to both of us, huh?
You can also keep an eye out for my themed ita bags!
Q: Are there any panels you might be attending?
A: I will be hosting the Cheet & Greet panel on Friday at 10 PM in Room 333 (3rd floor)! Please stop on by, there will be giveaways and fursuiters and all that fun stuff!
In addition, I will be going to the Friendly Feline Furry Fracas, African Species meetup, Instagram meetup, maybe some gender and TF-related panels if my partner wants to see them, and of course I'll be in the Fursuit Parade and hitting up the dances for at least one night!
Q: What about meetups or other events?
A: I'll be on the sunset fursuit cruise on Friday night! I usually attend the Furry Femme Photoshoot on Friday night, but that butts right up against the fursuit cruise and my panel is also scheduled during the middle of it. If people are still around after the Cheet & Greet ends, I might wander over if I'm not too tired. There will be an unofficial enamel pin trading meetup in the Zoo, but I probably won't have time to make it there between getting off the cruise ship and preparing for my panel. There is a LOT scheduled on Friday and I unfortunately won't be able to make it to everything, but I'll do my best!
I have organized a photoshoot for MagpieBones fursuiters on Sunday at 1:30! Looking forward to that!
I will also be attempting to coordinate some filming for Cheetah Chat with special guests.
Oh, yeah - and Thursday is always our sightseeing day! We like to go to the zoo, the cat cafe, do some shopping, that kinda stuff. It helps us get into the swing of things, especially for my partner, who isn't as into the whole convention shebang as I am. (Sorry, dear!)
Q: Where will you be most of the time during the day?
A: Most likely the Dealer's Den/Artist's Alley, at those panels/meets I mentioned earlier, or wandering through conspace.
Q: What/where will you be eating?
A: Winghart's and Emporio are old favorites! When the dining guide is posted, I'll see if there are any new eateries that might pique our interest.
Q: Can I come with you for food/fun/etc.?
A: You're more than welcome to! I may decline if I'm busy, though. Anthrocon is SUCH a hectic convention for me! Your best bet is to catch me on Sunday - I don't have much planned then.
Q: Will you be suiting?
A: Yup! I'll be in the fursuit parade on Saturday and at the Cheet & Greet on Friday for sure, as well as suiting around randomly.
Q: If I see you, how should I get your attention?
A: Yell "Shetani!" or tap me on the shoulder.
Q: What is the best way to find you?
A: Contact me on Twitter (@ShetaniCheetah) or Telegram! I don't give my Telegram out, but you can ask for it. If you're in the AC Telegram chat, you've probably seen me there already!
Q: Do you do free art, trades, or badges? Do you have an artist table?
A: No, sorry! I can't draw. :(
Q: Can I talk to you?
A: Absolutely! I love making new friends! Please don't ever feel shy or hesitant about talking to me, I promise I would love to say hello to you! My fursuit freaks a lot of people out, so I will not really walk up to a stranger and start talking to them out of courtesy. So, if you want to say hi, you gotta come over and let me know! I won't bite ya, I promise. I'm very smol.
Q: Can I take your picture?
A: Absolutely! Just let me know first so I can strike a pose for ya, and for the love of fluff, PLEASE send me the pictures or tag me on social media when you post them! It's no fun to have a bunch of people take pictures of you and never get to see any of them.
(This goes for in-fursuit only, for the record. Do not take pictures of me outside of suit. That's creepy and unnecessary.)
Q: Can I buy you drinks?
A: You can buy me a non-alcoholic beverage in a closed container! I like fruit-flavored drinks, tea, and water.
Q: Can I give you stuff?
A: Sure, just don't expect to get it back >:3
Q: Can I hug or snuggle with you?
A: I'll hardly ever say no to a hug when asked! Snuggles are probably not gonna happen.
Q: Are you nice?
A: Of course!
Q: Will you be going to parties?
A: I was invited to a Lion King room party, but yet again, it's happening during that Friday night timeslot, so I doubt I'll be able to make it. If you know of any other cool, safe parties (that are NOT on Friday night, PLEASE) do let me know!
Q: Will you be performing?
A: No, I'm not talented!
Q: What's your goal for the con this year?
A: Find somewhere to take nice photos (R.I.P. DLCC roof and water feature), have a successful Cheet & Greet, talk to people, and relax!
