Starting with a hi hello how are you? I’m fine thank you. I’ve been really busy with game development, art contributions and management for 2 online games. Both of them are now up and functioning well so all that’s left is managing them. (See Games)
Alright convention blog… Just to sum it up, I only attended local conventions this year due to a super busy schedule so here’s a short blog of the ones I attended this year.
Ai-kon (July 11-13, 2014) – my 4th year here. Quite disappointed that my spot was on the far corner facing back and there weren’t that many people this year too. Only saw a few cosplayers and not so many good ones but good to see the same faces buying some of my other stuff. Thank you Winnipeg~ ^o^ Also shouts to friends from out of town who came to my table showing me the pins they got from me 2-3yrs ago.. some of which I don’t sell anymore so I’m really happy that they still have it. ^__^
Comic & Toy Expo (April 13, 2014) – Just a 1 day convention but it’s worth it. It’s a comic con with only 2 anime artist hahaha. Exposure matters in this kind of small con. An opportunity came actually but it was a miss on my part for not getting the contact info of that company who wanted to hire me for an animation film! Couldn’t follow up since their company name was something I’m not familiar of and that person was in a rush, just took my card so nothing I can do there but wait… but nothing happened. I’ll definitely grab the next opportunity next time even if it means taking their time. LOL.
Wonderland Anime Festival (March 1-2, 2014) – 2 days convention hosted by C4. Their first year hosting anime convention with guests from Sailor Moon voice actors! Originally, I just paid for an autograph from Linda Ballantyne but she suddenly asked me to take a pic with my signed bookmark she’s holding here. Ah, she was really sweet when she came to my table pointing at that bookmark. Glad I got a chance to give it to her before the con was over coz I totally blanked out when she came to my table and missed my chance to offer her a bookmark or even a poster. >v<
Toy & Comic Expo (September 7, 2014) Just a single day con and it went by too fast! Some idle moments but this day was more on talking to local commissioners and kids….. I dunno why but there’s about 4 different group of kids went by my table to chitchat.. lol… just adorable kids talking about Sailor Moon and their toys hahahahaha……. this made me think.. do they know me? They talk like we’ve been talking a lot in the phone or at school…. or maybe they saw me in previous convention and I’m just getting old I forgot about them.. >__< Anyways.. quite a successful con… And the artist area is so spacious my table was 8ft long and behind me was completely bare.. lots of free space to roam around and for my stuff but I’m organize under the table as always.
PS: Thanks to my mom and dad for helping me setup my table.. ^o^
Convention preparations… are always stressful! LOL.. but they’re worth it. (*´◡`)
^ these pins are the new products on my table and they sell with a smile. ( ⌒∇⌒ )
That’s all for now but I’ll keep updating. (more updates in my facebook page)
