hurtfull comments recieved because i went up on stage at FC  
i had a good time at FC and won the judges award with wolf link in the masqurade.... but that got a bit soured which is why i am posting.

some one i know told me some one was calling me a bitch for going on stage with my sister to recieve the award while she was in wolf link and i was in beastcub and some one else called me a pompus show off for the same reason.

i would like to make it clear the staff back stage encouraged me to go up with my sister in the wolf-link quad because SHE CANNOT USE HER HANDS in the costume and wanted me to hold onto the award and at the curtain call i was going to stay back stage but when my sister passed me and i was still standing there one of the "den mothers" told me to stay with her so i did. but it makes me feel really bad to think people believe i am a glory-hound show off because i went up on stage with my sister to receive the award for a costume i had made while in another costume i had made.... i ran into and talked to one of the judges about it and she reassured me that me going up there was perfectly okay and that the people saying stuff like that were out of line but i still feel kind of hurt because i came into the contest very humbled because it was my first time entering and did not expect to even win a prize because i was in the professional category and pitted against other makers who have way more experience than me...

but aside from that tidbit kicking me in the back of the head i had an awsome time.

Don't let what one person dishearten you. You and your sis did good. For a first showing, this just goes to show how good you really are :)

Course you know, this means business will be booming.

furries can be easyly butthurt, dont let those few comments bug you, they're not worth your attention.
Dont forget, half of the drama found chez furs is based on envy, especially in the artistic section.

calling "bitch" directly is totally immature (and really classical butthurt envy). If the person really had a problem he/she should have confronted you with the words "I considered it unfair, why?". Taken aside that is OBVIOUS a quad cant hold things, and this is said from someone who has never seen a quad on more than just pictures.

I hope you will post pictures of the suits here?

Okay, number one, you built the suit so TECHNICALLY you belonged on stage with it anyway! Number two, I'm sure anyone who had a miff would understand better if they realized that your sis' hands weren't exactly in operable form at the time...which SHOULD have been fairly obvious anyway!

Remember the saying, "you can't please everybody all the time"? It's true, so you can't worry about the minority that's inevitably going to complain. By contrast, think of the many, many folks you made smile and laugh!

We're FURRIES, darn it! We go out in public dressed like giant animals! Our entire being is devoted to not caring what people think of doing things our own way, unashamedly...ain't that right? Who's with me!?

Thats just jealuosy on their part I love your work been watching awed for a while now in the background you deserve only praise. I so want to comission you to do a suit for me I just cant decide on what it will be.

wow, another reason why some furries are idiots. I have no idea why that would be a problem and honestly I like that the staff encouraged you to go. who better to help out a quad suit than a suit maker?

Your presence seems not only justified, but necesary, to me. In fact, if I were in your place I would have struck a victory pose. You did well, do not worry about it unduly.
