A big shout out to everyone at Nebkon! It was great to see everyone!
I had a great time and was incredibly thankful for the turnout. So many lately just haven't been cutting it for me.... plus various life issues (that are still piling up sadly) have had me pretty depressed. I really needed the positive energy I got, so again, thank you.
I hope all who picked up some items from me enjoy them!
A hint for you with buttons, take a pair of needle nose pliers and pinch the back hook part almost closed so that you have to open it yourself. You'll lose less buttons that way I've discovered, but they can still be removed if you need to wash the bag/hat that they're on, cause lord knows, eventually it'll need it.
As to what's next... Since I don't have any conventions planned until probably March with Naka-Kon, I'm looking for a seasonal part time job to bring in some extra income and maybe get some of the BJDs I've been lusting after for a good long while. I'm also hoping to FINALLY get my Etsy shop up sometime within the month. I'll be getting a lot of product into a physical format (instead of just images from illustrator) in the next week so that I can get photos taken and get things up for sale online. I'll make sure to link you guys to it when I get that ready to go.
Past that... it'll just be signing up for the conventions of the year, which I'm not sure yet which ones I should go back to. I know I definitely want to try A-Kon again, and get back into NDK in Denver, Anime Detour in MN, TnT (mostly because I have a lot of friends in the Tulsa area that I enjoy seeing), and of course, Nebraskon again. Beyond that, we'll just have to see what I can do.
I know I overdid it this year, so I think I'm going to back off of going to so many because it doesn't allow me time to actually make new product in between and thus sales were really sad this second half of the year (up until NebKon). Thankfully I didn't lose money on any of these cons, but it was very close... I can't afford to let that happen again.
Thank you again to everyone who's supported me throughout the years. Here's hoping I can continue to entertain you with my antics and products for a few more years at least.
