I spent this weekend at Central Canada Comic Con with my brother. I sold my books, he sold his art, and the con was relatively kind to both of us.
We dressed as Spinelli & TJ from Recess. The costumes were well received.
We arrived at the venue about 12:00 to start setting up. We had dropped off our supplies the night before. Setup didn’t take long, so we went for a delicious lunch. At 2pm, the convention started.
Business was slower on Friday, but that was only to be expected. We sold a couple of things, and had plenty of fun taking turns wandering the floor.
At the end of the day I won the 50-50 draw, which was a delightful surprise and funded more purchases than I would have been able to make otherwise.
My brother bought me super secret birthday present (more secret than the one I picked Friday!) and I found the best thing ever for my dad for Christmas. This year I also made a point of buying indie books, because I’m an indie author and I want to help my fellows.
Saturday was the longest day and by the end we were toast, but we had a blast.
I was on a panel at noon on Sunday, my first time ever. It was fun! I was with extremely talented company and I felt outclassed, but I was so grateful to have been invited. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.
There were so many good costumes (as always). Lots of laughs, some money, and good company. Overall I’d say it was a success.
