FINALLY! I have been to a comic con!!!! And the largest one on the east coast no less :iconhappytearsplz:
New York Comic Con...What a BLAST! Oh gosh I had a good time, but it was so packed. On Saturday I couldn't even walk around it was so crowded, I just hid behind our booth like a coward xD
I've never seen so many nerds in one place I don't think :giggle:  Me being one of them =P
It was a busy busy weekend, we had to drive 4 hours every day of the con into the city and out because we stayed with friends in New Jersey, so we got in at about 12 AM and got up at 5 AM every day xD That got old really fast and I think by the last day I was hallucinating :XD:

But other than the crazy traffic and lack of sleep, I really had a great time =P I got to meet some of our northern DeviantArt Watchers which was so cool because I never knew if we'd get to a con up north =)

It was certainly something I'll never forget ^_^ In a good way of course =P
In addition to the con, I also got to go to the place in central park where the newest Doctor Who Episode was filmed and nerd out about it. Also visited the Alice in wonderland statue =) We did the site seeing of NY that tourist are required to do on Wednesday, the day before the con. One of my crew had never been so of course we dragged her all over =P

We also got to visit Washington D.C. on our way back home and do the tourist thing again (You know, where you wander around aimlessly until you realize OH CRAP our parking meter is running out in 10 minutes and we're 20 minutes away!! :XD:)

So definitely a trip I would do again! The con was awesome despite being packed to the brim with people and pretty much impossible to walk around at xD I had more fun behind our booth just making jokes and talking to customers than anything =)
The only down side to this con I think was that we had two hats stolen that we know of :iconimseriousplz:
I've never had to worry about that sort of thing at a con before because I've only gone to Anime cons and there weren't half as many people so I don't have to watch people like a hawk :giggle:
It was sad but oh well =/ I mean that sucks but whatcha gonna do!!

So anyways,our next con I really don't know what it will be. We HOPE to be selling at Ichibancon in January in Charlotte, but their disorganization and lack of clear direction is very disheartening -.- We may even be at a con in November in Florida. Who knows. I kind of like the lack of planning, keeps life interesting xD
But anyways, as promised, I will be focusing heavily on new hats and posting some new designs! We've been so busy lately but now that it's getting colder, and the cons are slowing down, it's time for some new hats =D So that's how my weekend went, how about everyone else? Anything cool going on? Any upcoming con plans? =D

They didn't send me because they didn't want to spring for one hotel room for a single girl *GRRRR* But then one of the guys they did send messed up royally, got fired, I had to fix his stuff, I got angry, flipped out, and then got a raise LOL

It was a eventful couple of weeks without even going to an event :)
