Everfree NW (Everfree Northwest) is a My Little Pony convention held in Bellevue, Washington, from the 13th to 15th of August 2021. Chris intended to go, however, the con banned him from attending in the wake of leaked conversations in which Chris admitted to having incestuous relations with his mother.[1]

Funding

Hey, everyone. I’m just about good to go for @EverfreeNW, but I need a few extra bits to make sure I eat well over the weekend, support the artists, and all other details, please.

In June 2021, Null announced on the Kiwi Farms that Chris was planning to take the approximately 41-hour drive to attend the convention.[3] Null, however, had arranged for Chris to take a plane flight instead, with funding for the trip and additional expenses being provided to GoFundMe in exchange for Chris having to complete commissioned artwork and video requests for the contributors.

On 9 July 2021 Null started the GoFundMe fundraiser with a goal of $1,000 with the plan that any extra funds would go towards any emergency expenses. The page featured a video Chris uploaded to promote the campaign as well as a couple of paragraphs outlining how the money would be spent and details about the reward commissions. [4]

The fundraiser surpassed its initial goal of $1,000 within 6 hours of the campaign starting and managed to reach a total of $5,085 on 13 July 2021 before it was closed for further donations.[5]

Chris released the first public shout-out video, Paid Shout Out to Lifeguard Hermit, on 9 July 2021, followed by Chris Chan's shoutout to JoSona6 on 14 July, which was released for public viewing by its requester.

On 30 July 2021, following the leak of audio of Chris admitting to incest, Everfree revoked Chris's ticket and issued a statement on twitter about their commitment to safety, which although not naming Chris, heavily implied their awareness of the incident. [6] On 31 July 2021, Null posted an update to the GoFundMe page stating he would be returning all of the donations and that the GoFundMe page was in-part a test to see if Chris could handle completing commissions, with the hope that it be a way for Chris to reach financial stability in the future.

Cosplay

On 11 July 2021, Chris would post to Twitter stating that he would be hoping to cosplay as CPU Blue Heart during the convention. He would also state that he would be willing to pay a costume designer for the cosplay to be assembled, implying that money from the initial $1,000 fundraiser would be used to pay for it. The cosplay would include the one-piece torso outfit, shin guards, and the Commodore Wings.[7]

Chris would state a day later on Twitter that he had supposedly found a person willing to design some parts of the cosplay, however, that he was also still in need of someone to design the one-piece torso outfit.[8]

The problem, of course, lies in the fact that quality cosplay outfits usually take a while to make, and that they are even more difficult to create when they are made remotely, away from the person who would need to be fitted into the uniform. Given that Chris has regularly stretched the truth about his obesity problem, and the short notice that the outfit would be made on, the results would likely be far from ideal.
