So, Shutocon has passed. It was a most wonderful time this year and if I can go again next, it will be even better!
Thrusday: Left in the early afternoon and got there late afternoon. Wee. We got set up and I made some friends right away while also getting to say hello to others that were setting up. Slept on the bed that night, wasn't working out for me. There was also Bigby's.
Friday: Was up early enough to get sushi at this placed called Auqi or that's how it looked like it was spelled. It was delicious and then we went to finish setting up. I'm really pleased how it came out, Koyofest it should look even better. Once we were open I found that Friday was actually very busy, had a few commissions and everyone was super awesome. Even the singing voice of Sailormoon stopped by. Eeeeeeee~ Had sushi for dinner which was even more amazing, I ate way too much.
Saturday: Was up early for Bigby's, yum. And I spent over half the day working on commissions. Thankfully we closed at a decent hour and I was able to see the concert which was short, but sweet. Then had dinner at Taco 911 with my friends
who I didn't get to see all year. Then we played FLUXX for 3ish hours, sooo much fun. Had enough time to go to sleep. HA.
Sunday: Up early to pack and get Bigby's (noticing a pattern here), hung out there for quite awhile, then headed back to take all of our stuff down to the car and get settled in for the day, I spent that first hour finishing commissions, it worked out. I got to do several trades over the con as you could see by the image. I got to also say hello to a few more friends that only came for the day, wish I could have seen them longer though. We left after packing up and we ended up being one of the last artists to go. Hit up Bigby's on the way home, because well yes, thank you MI.
Sales were up by a lot! I around doubled what I did last year, so yay for that. Planning on returning next year. Thank you to everyone that stopped by to chat, especially the SM and Weiß fans! And to everyone that bought something from me, it really means a lot to know that other's like my art.
Next up, Koyofest in Flint.
