Back from Minicomi 2014. Gads. I didn't realize they did this for four years now. Wow.
We were moved off the UBC Campus into The Olympic Village. While the room was hot, it was a great venue. Right on the water at False Creek, plenty of natural light. Loved it.
Minicomi is my "opening" event, so I always start my convention season traditionally with that. But soon it's going to be my middle show, as of next year there will be two more shows ahead of it.
It felt strange to be going in what with everything going on. But when I went to see my grandma yesterday she asked how my show went and if I did OK.
I loved seeing familiar faces and it was so great to here people asking where I was. "We haven't seen you in along time!" "I thought for sure you'd be at this show!" "Are you going to AR?"
To know that my plushies are missed, wanted and collected is something I can't describe. Well, OK,it's fantastic. There's no other feeling than when someone comes up to you and says someone they know has a onion. and loves it. Or "Someone ran by our table with a tomato and we had to see where it came from." I had a gal in the booth near me, position her tomato on the corner of her booth; she purchased it last year. Talk about cross promotion!
So the last con of the season is Anime Revolution. Be prepared for an onslaught of pics of new things in the works.
Oh, and a contest in late August.
