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.
