Hi, I'm Paprika. This year I got my first fullsuit at age 16. This year I'll be wearing her to two conventions; an anime con and a fur con, both in Texas. However I'm scared. I've heard stories about some people being a little too touchy, about asking weird things and such. And even being online (furry amino and Facebook, both of which paprika is my icon ). People cannot tell I'm a minor unless I specify, I've been offered pictures and been asked to participate in "special" roleplays (all of which I have declined too). But through a screen it's easy to say "no". People can't touch you without your permission online, and such. The thing is, when I'm suiting, you can't tell I'm a minor. I'm scared that when I'm dancing, or making friends. Someone is going to touch me in a weird way, or I'll be asked to strange room parties or the such. I've been in the fandom since I was ten. I understand that there's just some creepers in the world. However is there anyway I can prevent it. Is there anyway I can make sure I don't feel too uncomfortable. My brother who is 26 will be my handler for the day portion of the anime con, of which I won't be wearing paprika very much, and at night during the rave, both my parents will be my handlers while I'm in suit. And while at the fur con, my parents will be my handlers for the duration of the convention. But still, is there any way to make sure I'm safe? I feel like I'm blowing things out of proportion, or worrying too much. Heck, maybe I've just been listening to too many convention horror stories. The furry fandom has been my second home for so long, I've meant so many wonderful friends in it, but I just want to try and make sure one creeper doesn't get too friendly. I'm not very experienced with public suiting. I've only taken paps out once to get photos. Any and all advice is really appreciated. I just want to have a fun time.
