ABDL Events, Conventions and more – All Year Round

et TeddyConCAPCon  CampCrucible US Littles   & More!

This is a very exciting posting to make, for many reasons.  Listed below are ABDL events, gatherings, parties and convention.  And it’s very encouraging to see so many, popping up out of the woodwork.  Gone are the days of sparse communications and remote parties.  Now, you have opportunities around every corner, inviting you to attend and waiting for you.


I’m certain there are some events that I’ve missed.  In fact, I hope I missed some because that would mean there’s even more out there.  But just with what’s listed here, you can find something very “Diaper-ish” to attend that will fit your comfort level, road trip limits, budget, age, preference, darkness levels (a.k.a. Butt Whoopin’), innocent levels and how far away you can be from Turkey Hill Iced Tea without losing your mind!

Okay, that last one mainly pertains to me, but the fact remains that diapered bottoms are travelin’ everywhere!

Hold on, everybody.  Here we go:

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.

The Con is now open

tc-16-handbookBy the time you read this posting, TeddyCon 2016 will have opened its doors and welcomed in the masses of ABDLers, age players, dreamers and believers.

Throughout this weekend, please check out the TeddyCon Group on FetLife for updates, memorable quotes and more.

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

“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.

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

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

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

Congratulations are in order!

CAPConJust a quick note to congratulate The Chicago AgePlayers Convention on selling out for the third year straight!

CAPCon

When they launched their first campaign back in 2011, 60 people attended.  Now, five years later, they are five times as large … if not more.

CAPConAnd this goes to show that, not only do the attendees enjoy the event, but they continue to return every year – bringing more and more ABDLers with them. 

CAPConThe word has spread that CAPCon is a very good time.  And I can hardly wait for the day when CAPCon sells out an entire hotel.  To the best of my knowledge, it will be the first and only single-fetish event to do so.

CAPConCongratulations, CAPCon.  I’ll see you in March.

Blessings,

What a Great Six-Pack Looks Like

I remember attending CAPCon 2012. It was actually CAPCon #2. And from their first convention to that second one, their attendance had doubled. There were 90 or so people there. And at the time, it was the largest gathering of ABDLers I had ever seen at a single-fetish event. (Yes, I had seen more than 90 ABDLers at FetFest 2011, but that was a multi-fetish event.)

CAPCon 2013 held the same number of attendees as the convention had chosen to focus in a particular direction. But the same con space and the same atmosphere brought different classes, different experiences and even a podcast recording.

CAPCon 2014 not only shot the attendance over 200, but it actually sold out for the first time. A new hotel and con space as well as new classes and a growing-trend of room parties had made the convention an established annual event that wasn’t to be missed.

CAPCon 2015 sold out again, pushing the numbers very close to 300 and was now held in the biggest convention space I had ever seen. The room was enormous with very high ceilings and a magnanimous way of making everyone feel small – a feeling nobody complained about.  😉

I would give anything to go back and experience the first CAPCon in 2011, just to witness the foundations being laid for the proven GrandDaddy of the common era. But if I had done that, I might not have been as enchanted as I was at CAPCon 2012.

Pennsylvania is moving ever-closer to allowing alcohol to be sold everywhere. Unlike most every other state, the only place you can buy any alcohol at all is at a beer distributor or a state liquor store. What this means is: In PA, you will find no alcohol at grocery stores or Wal-Marts or gas stations. Any time I visit friends in other states, I’m still blown out of the water by the beer section at stores there.

But recently, certain grocery stores in PA have been licensed to have “beer cafes” on the premises. In short explanation, you are allowed to go into this section of the grocery store and make a personalized six-pack out of the beers that are offered.

This may seem minute to most, but it’s a major step in the right direction for Pennsylvania. And what an enchanting way to usher in the inevitable. You can make a sample six-pack.

Six PackThis year, CAPCon turns six. (Can you see where I’m headed with this analogy? 😉) I’ve often wondered what a CAPCon six-pack would look like. And if following true to CAPCon form, I guess it would have to be similar with each offering while still being unique each time around.

That first year of CAPCon will always remain a mystery to me because I wasn’t there. But what is established fact at this point is that CAPCon 2011 had to display an environment that was all-encompassing, all-inviting and all-consuming. If it hadn’t been like that, there never would’ve been a franchise created.

And much like a personalized variety six-pack, you can start with any particular bottle and enjoy them all. Similarly, there is no need to have every attended any CAPCon at all in order to enjoy the sixth one this year.

But time is of the essence and March 18th will be here in the blink of an eye.

Will you be at CAPCon 2016?

If so, come up and say hello to me because any six-pack that is worth having is worth sharing with friends.

It’s time to pull the trigger and to decide.  The event is, once again, about to sell out.  And when the tickets are gone … they’re gone.
