That was a whole different kind of experience for me.
Finished my first two-day con last night courtesy of Rocky Mountain Con. I made almost double my table back so I think I did pretty okay for a first time. Especially since it was primarily a comic book convention and I had no comic stuff to speak of other than the batman portrait I painted while sitting there. I was just shy of covering product printing costs, but that's to be expected I think since I was starting with nothing. Hopefully I'll make it back at the next con.
I made these Star Wars/Sailor Moon crossover stickers that were more popular than I thought they'd be, especially the Darth Vader Tuxedo Mask. That one sold out halfway through the first day, definitely should have made more. Here is Tonks of Pixie Cosplay showing the sticker off on her sketchbook, w00t!
Turns out this con was a pretty big cosplayer scene, they had loads of contests both days--one of my favorites was a giant lego man and this skeksi. This thing was soooo creepy when it would lung at people, it operated a lot like those animatronic raptor suits you see videos of around the internet, super scary.
All in all it was a pretty good experience. I'm thinking of going to Denver Comic Con in June if they'll let me have a table. I've heard it's gotten really big and pretty competitive, so we'll see if I can even get in. e_e
Also, if you stopped by my table and are reading this, hello! Thank you for coming to check out my gallery, I'd love to hear from you so don't be shy about commenting/shooting me a note/whatever.
