Since it’s so expensive for me to even get access to a power outlet at the con, I’ll only probably have the video game up for people to play on Sunday to maximize the magnetic force of the Dinnersaurus table. I will be tabling at the Artist Alley. I’m not sure at which table yet, it looks like first come first serve.
I have no idea what to expect from this con — it’s a completely different demographic than the previous 2 cons I went to, which were more focused on superhero-based comics (and this will be for 3 days). At an anime con, however, the demographic is much more open to “kawaii” stuff. But I’m sure I’ll be competing against tons of other kawaii stuff. I’m not trying to sell Dinnersaurus as an anime thing exactly, but more of as an original brand made up of a series of original artwork to be featured in an artist alley.
*shrug* Mamasaurus and Sweetie Dino both have anime-esque eyes, does that count? And the bunny too.
Anyway, basically the only new thing I got for this upcoming con is this huge fleece blanket:
I’m mainly going to use it as a table cloth at the con so that the lower part of it shows up in front of the table like a poster. In my experience, a matte paper poster is really stiff and curls up into itself way too much. Instead of going to sites where they specifically print custom images on felt tablecloths designed for conventions, I just printed a blanket on Zazzle because it cost much less. And it doubles as a blanket!
I will put it up for sale for twice the cost to produce and ship, but I’m not expecting anyone to buy it because if they do, I won’t have a poster hanging off my table anymore 😥 but at least I’ll have the money to just buy another printed blanket for the next con, I guess.
If you happen to be in New York City and you can get into the con, feel free to come by and buy a few Dinnersaurus books and paraphernalia! No shipping costs 😀
Wish me luck at this con!
