Toronto ComiCon 2013

This was our first time at the Toronto ComiCon with a table in Artist Alley... and the first Con of the year for us. It was pretty awesome! ComiCon isn't as big as Fan Expo but still there were lots people. This is a picture of our table on the first day after setting up. As you can see we upgraded from the sticks and string, to the wire cubes to help hold up some of our prints and bows. I think it makes us look more professional, and I guess we are, since this is our third Con!
We had some time to kill so we walked around a bit. Here are a bunch of other artists setting up.
Lots of other vendors setting up. I love walking around before the big crowds come in...
So a few weeks ago I really got into Kigurumi Pajamas, (Animal pajamas! They`re so cute.) and I searched eBay and found a bunch of them for sale for like $25 - $45, which is awesome and I`ll be ordering mine soon... but they were being sold at ComicCon for $65 - $85, which is crazy! And I saw lots of people walking around with them. I just wanted to run up to all of them and tell them they could have gotten the same one for so much less! Although they did have a bunch of characters I've never seen before...
This is Mike Hogue, we all work together and he was at ComiCon too. He was selling a bunch of prints and pins and promoting his online animated cat comic, Jinx the black cat. Check it out if you have a minute. 
On the second, and last day I realized it would be a super smart idea to get some product photos or customer photos... you know what I mean. Well I only took like three but this one is the only one that turned out.
This is our table on the second day, looks pretty much the same...
Overall, ComiCon was pretty awesome. We had a great time and made lots of sales. I sold a few of my prints and sold out of three types of bows, which was a great feeling. Having the wire cubes worked great for clipping my bows onto, lots more people noticed them. We will totally be getting a table next year or possibly get our own tables. Exciting!
Shout outs; I want to thank our friend Marcus for driving us to and from the Con, to Justin for watching the table on his own while I walked around and to all the people that stopped by to say hello and/or bought something. Thank you so much!

I am so happy about how the weekend went, I want to spread the love by offering 15% off any ad space with the code: HAPPYTIME. :]
