Everything is over...so far

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 22, 2015, 11:36 PM


Another Anime Revolution has come and gone leaving me moping the loss of my pointed ears.

I have con withdrawl. Again.

This year my friend and I tried our hand in the vendor section. I had both my stores and she had some Lolita stuff she was selling. I am happy for her as she got rid of three out of the five outfits. And not only that;she helped out a gal who loves the fashion, but has a different type of figure. That's what you like to see when something of that nature sells!

I think though, as I'm starting to get known for my plush, that representing two businesses was confusing. So we will go back to the artist alley next year. Saleswise, we didn't do too badly. I wished my True North Tomato did better, but it will have its time. 

 I got to walk around, shop and have lunch with my friend as we watched two Spidermen and two Venoms have their picture taken outside Canada Place.

If you haven't been to Vancouver, Canada Place is right on the water. Go down two blocks and you can see the Olympic Torch. The scenery is fantastic for cosplay shots of all kinds. And the best part? Seeing all these tourists amazed,confused and delighted by all the cosplayers. I had one guy stare at my ears as I was making my way to the convention center. The gal that did my makeup just laughed and said "I think it's too early for your ears right now!"

This year also marked some challenges. I was plagued with wrist pain two weeks up to the con. I couldn't make as much as I wanted, dropping two items that were heavy on the hand sewing. Considering I've another large show for Christmas, I think I made a hard but good choice.

So I can't sew until September, as I'm giving my wrists a rest.

That means it's time to start writing again. Tymr's upset I interrupted his reading time, and Martin was going on a road trip with Kaolin and Scot.

But hey, all good things must end.

I love these two. I follow them on Facebook. This was when Ontario had a massive snowdump. They didn't start thawing out until close to May.
Was that the comment about drawing and flipping the bird?

You're welcome! :evillaugh:

That was the one! My husband thought it was perfect.

I will be sending over a new re-touched version of Martin's birthday picture. I went back to look make sure it was all in order for posting it on Sunday and decided I wasn't happy with how his skin tone turned out. It was just too ... green. Made him look a little sick, and that's *really* not what I had in mind. The new one should be along presently. I'm just sorry I didn't notice it earlier!

Oops.

Thank you; you always take such good care of my boys.I didn't notice anything amiss.But now that I see the change, It looks great! Green=green blood? I guess I don't want my half elf mistaken for a Vulcan! Oh, wait...that's already happened.

Martin actually looks like he got a bit of a tan! No surprise, I guess, since he was on holiday during con season.
And I'm glad your hubby loved the comment. Although, your hand would get sore after a while.

Thank you very much for helping to find a cure for Ndbag's case of being green (and yellow, and striped, of course). ^_~
