Vcon 2013 Con Report

Oww sore back from Vcon and being an artist alley vendor for the 3rd time. Sad to say I made a slight loss at this con but I learned alot of things as a vendor like oh wongs of the hotel are quiet at times and we need more foot traffic. It was so quiet on Friday(in particular) and Saturday at certain hours that I was starting to do the waddle dance/circus tricks and today they were empty spots which I thought previously had people. ABANDON SHIP!!.so you can say it was a tactical stint.

My neighbor Karucrafts (https://www.facebook.com/KaruCrafts) aww thanks for being good tablemates and sorry for attempting to juggle your balls....they are so squishy!!!! Points to Vcon for the free Con Scripts. I was able to make my artist alley neighbors happy by doing some pretty button shopping. It was also nice to chat with customers and fellow cosplayers too...even gave a slight good word for my Martian friends (IT's Real!!! they are such things as "Djs from Mars" and they can rock'n rock!!). Awesome outfits this year. Surprised not many cosplayers but exotic mix.

Sold new products along side my signature pixel art and postcard stuff....water colour style buttons and eyeball stickers. Oddly in a different scenario from what I used to at anime conventions...perler beads art are usually the best sellers but this time it was the new eyeball stickers and buttons that were the sellers. People thought they were pretty so I'll keep these in stock for the next artist alley stints. Happy that one of my original design "No Passports!" postcards got sold...Jaroslav the Polish Mermaid. Despite HER name....she is a she and my steampunk style mermaid, also the first image that was formatted for printing purposes with a few bugs. Its marked with my real name in the corner.


 I designed the Engel Dreizehn outfit for a soccer game involving my favorite German soccer star (hence the soccer/Germany flavor) originally and included in the original design plans a parasite-twin brother rendered as a sword or with the wsord cover, an eye. I prefer to use the outfit as my vendor's persona for my own special touch.
