Good morning! Last weekend, my sister and I participated in the Artist Alley at Mechacon 2015 in New Orleans. We were a bit overwhelmed in the Artist Alley as it was quite crowded. Both my sister and I work in industries that do not require much public interaction so being bombarded by thousands of people was a test of our introverted nerves. I think we did well despite that :)
There were so many great cosplayers at the convention. Since we were behind our artist alley table, we weren't able to get many photos.
The My Little Pony cosplayers were amazing. There was someone dressed in a huge Pinkie Pie pony costume while the rest opted for lovely dress cosplays for their favorite characters.
Sorbet Jungle, a Gem bag and two cute book buttons from Natto Soup, a lovely Sailor Scouts bag from Darien Chen, a Mardi Gras lolita king cake brooch from Mintymix, a keychain and cell charm from the anime Gugure! from another table, and a fantasy novel Peace of Evon from Dorothy Tinker.
I can't wait to wear the buttons to work. The Mardi Gras king cake is perfect for next year's Mardi Gras season and the book buttons are adorable for any day.
I also bought two items that will be gifts for Christmas........so I can't show them until later this year :)
From the Dealers' Room, I purchased a copy of Colorworld from Rachel Kelly. Her husband was manning the table and his description of the series was so interesting that I purchased a copy of the book. I also bought a few metal bookmarks from him as well. The only other things I bought from the dealers' room were Japanese snacks from two of the vendors that I hadn't tried before.
All in all, I think we had fun at this year's Mechacon. I think we might participate next year.
Thanks to everyone who came by and supported our table. We had fun chatting with our customers!! I'm so glad that my amigurumis found new homes to live in!
Until next time ^____^
