Things I think we should start at concerts.  “Convention badges.” 

The furry fandom has these.  A drawing of your “fursona” and your name, so people know who you are.

We should do that for SPG concerts too.  Art of your fanbot/Kazoolander/character, and their name/your URL so that internet people can know who you are right away.  Would make finding people much easier, and show off our characters.

Also a great way to show off great art.  We have so many AMAZING artists in this fandom, it’d be cool to see more art at live shows.

oh this is the one i should have reblogged

I like what you're saying with the convention badges, but I don't /fully/ understand what you mean, could you possibly explain more, please? ^_^;; (I'm so sorry, I'm really bad with comprehending things and this sounds cool so I wanna understand it fully) Thank you if you decide to answer this (^_^3)

In the furry fandom, “con badges” are a HUGE business.  Here are some examples:

Aerosocks, I have wanted one of their badges for a while.
Some badges I’ve made.
The first badge I ever commissioned from someone.

When you’re in a fursuit, a lot of people don’t speak.  So it’s hard to tell people your name.  Or since most of the fandom knows each other through the characters we draw, we have a visual when we go to cons to find our favorite artists or friends.

In the SPG fandom, people have a lot of characters.  And it feels like a lot of shyness about asking people for their URL’s and screen names.  So the idea of having our fan bots, or Kazoolanders, or some other character on a badge like this, with our screen names or URL’s or whatever, would be a good way to find our Cav and Tumblr friends without the awkward “So who are you?” problem.

I like this idea, con badges in the spg fandom should be a thing.

ok but a slytherin student from some hoity-toity pureblood family becoming ridiculously infatuated with muggle culture

and they just approach some muggleborn gryffindor who’s immediately on guard and waiting for some kind of insult but then the pureblood pulls a fucking nokia flip phone out of their robes and says “ALRIGHT, HOW DO YOU GET THIS TO WORK. I’VE BEEN PRESSING ON THE BUTTONS FOR THE PAST HOUR AND IT HASN’T DONE ANYTHING”

(it needs to be charged)

excuse u it doesnt work because you’re at hogwarts and muggle technology fritzs out geez

"Don’t put turpentine-soaked rags in a closed container in a warm environment because they’ll self-combust."

That’s…. good to know.
