Oh time, how she does fly! Earlier this month I was in the artist alley at LA Cosplay Con, and it was awesome! This was actually my first con ever, and I loved seeing all the awesome cosplays. I am dying to try out one of my own, I just have to figure out what would be awesome and comfortable enough to sit around in at my booth for eight hours. (I would LOVE to be Mystique but I don’t think I could do the all-over blue make-up for that long!)
I also loved meeting the other artists and talking to the attendees. There were so many talented, creative people! My fellow artists were very welcoming and friendly. For a few of them, it was their first con, too. Others had been doing the con track over the last year, and they had some good tips. I had a great time chatting with the attendees, too, and I was amazed at what a wide range of ages and personalities there were.
I originally made these cute poo earrings and charms for Kawaiiland–I was on the fence about doing it, but I figured why not try it out, and people liked them! So I had them at this con, and people were into them there, too! They’re now in the ClayQuarry Etsy shop, too.
I’m looking forward to doing more cons later in the year–many of the upcoming ones have already got their exhibitors’ booths all booked up! I’m excited to experiment, too. The world of cons is a whole new playground…
