First of all, IF YOU WERE INTERESTED IN MY FOUR HORSEMEN SET AND COULDN'T GET A COPY BECAUSE IT WAS SOLD OUT,
shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can arrange to have one sent to you
let me know which size you would like, 4x6 or 8x12.
Seriously, the people who managed to get a set of those...the heavens were smiling upon you! I had no idea that my four horsemen drawings would be such a hit. I would literally be completely sold out of them within a few hours. They were a bestseller! Y'all are just too much
But geez I had such a fun time!
Friday was super slow, but Saturday and Sunday were packed full of action. Did plenty of people watching...HOLY CRAP there were some amazing and really creative outfits there. And people were not afraid to get into character. I saw everything from steampunk Jack Skellington and Sally, Victorian Joker and Harley Quinn, steampunk Day of the Dead, and a guy walking on stilts while playing the bagpipe. Not to mention the countless girls wearing the most gorgeous dresses I have ever seen. That's the thing I really like about the steampunk community. You can tell that people have a real passion for the genre. Pick out anyone from the crowd and inquire them about their outfit...there's almost always a story behind it, on where they got it, whether they made it themselves, or commissioned someone, found it at a garage sale, etc. It felt really nice being a part of such a creative community. Awesome!
And of course, what's a convention without buying cool stuff? I admit, steampunk most certainly ain't cheap, but since I did really well at my booth I decided to spoil myself ^_^ bought a pair of goggles from Steambaby (on etsy www.etsy.com/listing/54607293/…
), this really cool leather garter from Steampunked Out www.steampunkedout.com/ladies_…
, and some artwork from Robyn Kaplan aka The Gorgonist: www.etsy.com/shop/thegorgonist
Be sure to check out her shop, her stuff is beautiful to look at and very affordable :]
This is a picture of my booth, by the way. Day 1 it was looking REALLY boring, so I decided to spice it up a bit. Brought some of my Turkish scarves and draped them over the wire cubes, and hung some of my mosaic hanging lamps as well for a bazaar-type look. It would totally work for next year's Steamcon theme: Around the World! i46.tinypic.com/xmr3pk.jpg
And yes, that is me :]
But anyways, back to the real world now! I'm going to miss seeing people running around in suits, top hats, goggles, and corsets. My next convention will be ECCC in March 2013. See you there!
