So FANEXPO was amazing! jakface came to stay for the week and even though we didn’t get much sleep we still had a ton of fun and laughed our butts off. We did Ladies Night at the Comic Book Lounge, Canadas Wonderland with ktshy and fierywingtips, we had a studio BBQ with gamma-girl and megankearney, we were invited on to an episode of Shanahanigans Live which you can watch here (if you get the chance, please do, it’s hilarious!)
It was my very first time tabling at Fanexpo and my very first sale was the framed Doctor Who triptic so I was very pleased with that! Thursday night we did Fanexpo Kareoke with a huge group of people which was a BLAST and I lost my voice and we didn’t get home until 4am so we only got a couple hours of sleep and then we had to get up and head back into Toronto for day two!
I had a few ‘Get yourself drawn as a Sailor Scout’ commissions but I was very happy to get a couple of comic book commissions, one guy wanted his wife drawn as Power Girl and a Scarlet Witch cosplayer wanted Scarlet Witch and I was very pleased with how they turned out. Friday night we had Ramen with zomgdance and jacob-johnson-art and deenadraws as well as our friend Nicole, and then went home and crashed!
I got to see the awesome theswearingmime and her g/f dressed up as Peggy Carter and Army Steve and holy am I ever a sucker for ladies in uniforms!! theswearingmime also cosplayed Captain Marvel on Thurs. but I didn’t get a picture (check her blog, I’m sure there will be tons!) Oh also we got to see imaicosplay in her amazing Battle Armour Sailor Moon cosplay (my absolute fav of hers!) Sat. night was Spaghetti Factory meet up - there were 14 of us and it was an awesome night of chatting, networking and a whole lot of laughter!
On Sunday the ever awesome Angel came by in his battle Rufio costume which was so amazingly accurate! I had to get a picture of him with the print he bought! I bet even rufiozuko himself would be impressed! XD Thos adorable punk Sailormoon Girls came by a few times over the weekend - if you’ve followed me on tumblr send me a quick message so I know it’s you! Sunday night we packed up, said goodbye to everyone we could and headed back to newmarket for some Swiss Chalet! I drove jakface to the airport that night and just like that it was over.
BUT I’ve rebooked for next year and I’m already pumped about having a full table and hopefully jakface will come and stay again whether for fanexpo or another Toronto con!
I wanted to mention a few other people I saw over the weekend like hopelnicholson keiren-smith tytempleton spartanideal and our table neighbors Alex and Khaiam from smellslikematurity, and Rachel portablecity and Noreen neomonki as well as Andrew from argcomic - you guys are awesome for putting up with our tired and caffeine addled butts! <3
