There were many things this con did different than other cons. And I will get into that in a moment.
But let me first say that WEREWOLVES ROCK and we have needed a convention for their "needs" for a long time.
You all know I love all monsters. And I have been to events for things like vampires. Vampires get all the attention. They get cons, they get balls. They get more movies than any other creature in the horror genre. They get all the love. And sparkles...
But what about the beasts of the blood moon? Don't we deserve love too?

The con was a lot smaller than I expected. Which was good in some ways, because people got to know each other easier. Bigger cons make it hard to bond with your fellow nerds. Why go to a con if you weren't interested in meeting others? The biggest con I have been to so far is debatably either FanExpo in Canada or Wizard World. I have been to World Horror Convention, but that is for professionals in the industry and has a very different feel from fan cons. Fan cons are supposed to be for the fans. Sometimes they are, but sometimes they are so overwhelming it's hard to enjoy yourself.
So I was just fine with the small, intimate con. I can say I was at the con when it was a wolf pup. I can be proud of meeting all the folks I did and making all the connections I made.

Plus I got to hang with my boss and talk business, which is always a plus. I don't get a chance to go to Portland a lot, so when I can it's a great time.

Now I am going to play with my new bones I got at the con.
