What I Saw and What I Loved

I wasn’t going to put up a posting about TeddyCon 2018, instead opting to thoroughly enjoy reading what other people wrote about it.  But when I got home on Monday night after having been at the convention hotel for the eight days prior, I felt a familiar urge to do something I hadn’t done in more than a week … to write.

The more people write and post about the events they go to, the more those events grow.  Posting about specific activities enjoyed or other recollections of specific moments at a convention give the organizers a bit of information about what was seen as most memorable at the event they put together.

Anyone who plans and implements a convention or similar gathering wants their creation to be memorable and to leave fond thoughts in their attendees’ minds, even days after the convention ends.  And when people write about their fresh memories, it becomes a window that clearly displays what people enjoyed the most.

So, instead of typing a minute by minute recalling of the entire experience, I’ve decided to write about specific moments from TeddyCon 2018 that I found to be personally touching.  It is an impossibility to be a part of every single class, activity, craft, special event and specific happening at TeddyCon as there are always at least six different options of things to do at all points in time.

It goes without saying that I didn’t see everything that went on at TC, every moment in every location.  So, I will write about what I saw and what I loved.

—————————————

TeddyCon 2018 was the second year of a complete hotel takeover offering.  At TC, a complete hotel takeover is inclusive of every square inch of the entire hotel building, up to and including the glass doors of the main entrance as well as the indoor pool.  But it is also inclusive of the courtyard.  And the whole thing truly felt like a village, a magical destination – complete with a restaurant, a watering hole, a swimming hole, sleeping accommodations, shopping, entertainment, night life and the ability to roam about in nothing but a t-shirt and diaper – if so desired … protected and maintained to keep it safe.

And my oh my. The TeddyCon village atmosphere was filled with an energy I had never felt the strength of before while it offered up more than any prior TeddyCon had tendered.

CAPCon 2017

In 2011, the current era of ABDL hotel conventions began.  These weren’t the first of their kind as they followed after so many wonderful predecessors of the past who built the momentum without the enormous aid of internet exposure.

As a close friend of mine has often stated: “A rising tide lifts all ships”.

And that tide has been a tidal wave.

CAPConThough others have emerged since, the ABDL hotel convention that has survived from that year of 2011 is CAPCon, The Chicago AgePlayers Covention.  And 2017 will see their 7th offering.

But things have changed about this convention in so few years.  Whereas, at its inception, tickets would be available up to the start of the convention weekend, a few years in – with a solid month to go before the ever started.

But that kind of available timing no longer exists.

For 2017, and this is the most important point of this posting, so I’m going to put it in bolded and underlined text … TeddyCon 2017 is selling so fast that they will likely be completely sold out before Christmas 2016 … if not sooner than that.

So, if you want a ticket, you need to act quickly and purchase it.  If you are one of those people who, in years past, bought your CAPCon ticket in January or February, the 2017 event will be sold out by then.

If you are interested but still uncertain about CAPCon, here is a list of every posting I have made about it on this website:

Hop onto the FetLife group and read the threads.  Ask people about the event.

These are exciting times, and as these types of conventions begin to sell entire hotels out I would very much like you to be a part of them.

They are eye-opening, exciting, accepting of everyone and filled with more things to do than you could possibly be able to do in a single-weekend.  Some have even been so affected by them to refer to these events as being life-changing for them.

So I leave this exciting and time-sensitive decision in your hands and I hope to see you at CAPCon in 2017.

TeddyCon 2016 – Happily Stuck on YOU

tc-16-handbookSince 2014, every October has included an east coast ABDL convention for the crinkly and ageplay masses, rivaling no other convention – but instead, further enhancing the community we all belong to and love.

TeddyCon 2016 continued that mission in its third year and with an immense amount of help from its attendees and volunteers, grew just a bit more.

Tuesday, October 11th

I arrived at the TeddyCon hotel at the appropriate time of 2:18 pm, almost exactly two days before the event started.  As I approached the front entrance, out walked Mommy Kuri, Little Philly and Razamataz – three devoted individuals who had arrived the evening prior.  And in short order, TeddyCon 2016 – The Hat Trick began.

There was an immediate buzz in the air, helping hands with greater involvement than ever before and the vision clear that not only would there be new things for the TC masses to enjoy this time around but also the trusted favorites to return.  The growth was evident, a result of immense planning and building.  And the energy equaled the preparations.

Setting up the command station in the infamous room 218, I already was taking notice to the greater amount of everything that would make up the third offering of this event.  It was a greater amount of supplies, of helping hands, of attendees and as I would soon learn – of memories.

A “Class” Affair

TeddyConI love the weeks and months that lead up to an ABDL convention as more and more details are added to the planning of the event and then announced.  It’s fun because you get to see the convention forming right in front of you and, in a sense, you become a part of it that way.

Just yesterday, the TeddyCon crew announced the class list for the 4-day 2016 convention.  I list those classes here now.

“Solo Age Play” – Penny Barber

Solo age play can be fun and deeply rewarding to your Little. Come meet with Penny Barber as she leads a discussion in solo age play techniques, activities, and issues. Bring your questions as well as your suggestions!

“Setting Up Online Profiles” – Penny Barber

This class is designed to help you connect online efficiently and meaningfully with other age players and fetishists. Penny Barber, who has been professionally and privately blogging about age play since 2003, will go through the basics of writing your profile, adding pictures, writing that first PM, and making new friends.

“Sploosh / Wet and Messy (WAM) Play with Piggy” – Piggy

Pie throwing is kind of a lost art, and although it may be a rather rudimentary, burlesque humor, there’s something inherently funny about taking a pie in the face, under the right conditions. ~ Johhny Carson Learn about Sploosh/Wet and Messy (WAM) play! From set up, to safety, to delivering the perfect pie in the face, Piggy will walk you through it all.

“Touch: Good, Bad & Other” – Squee

“Welcome to the Sandbox: Age Play 101” – Tisiphone

Welcome to the sandbox! Grab a pail. So, you’ve heard of this thing called age play, but what is it? Littles, middles, ad/dl, bigs, what does it all mean? Where do you fit into the spectrum? This class will be an overview of age play; we’ll talk about what age play is and what it is not. We’ll discuss why people may desire this type of play as well as provide hints for achieving and maintaining the headspace you desire. This class is perfect if you are merely curious or are just starting to explore. This class is interactive, so please bring questions and an open mind.

“Pulling Pigtails” – Tisiphone and MephistophelesXI

Why do Bigs always get to play the role of the big, bad wolf? Well; a little may not be able to be very big, but littles certainly can be bad! Let’s get down and dirty and talk about little on little bullying tactics! Whether you identify as a middle, little, or ab/dl we’ll give you plenty of nasty tricks for your toy bad and use against the other kids! We’ll discuss the potential pitfalls with this type of play, and how to hopefully avoid them. Come out with your questions and we’ll wrap up with a demo!

“The Lonesome Little: Ageplay for Introverts” – MephistophelesXI

Friends! Coloring! Nerf gun wars! Tag, you’re it! – It often feels like playing with other littles is one of the most important parts of the age play experience, yet sometimes, well… people can feel a little overwhelming. But wanting to be alone doesn’t have to be isolating! This class will focus on how being by yourself can enhance your ageplay experience. Not everybody wants to be the life of the party; come let your wallflower flourish.

A “Little” Detective Work – Little Lady Luna

Join Detective Luna and her stuffie sidekick, Deputy Moose, in creating and investigating an imaginary world, playing improve games, and solving mysteries with the TCFTPD (Teddy Con Fairy Tale Police Department). This class will focus on stretching our imaginations, letting go of our day to day worries, supporting each other’s ideas, and having fun playing pretend in a structured adventure. This class will feature active participation from all of its members. Please come ready to play!

And there are more classes to be announced yet!
