In my early college years, I had attended Katsucon a few times. I kind of missed that world. And I dove right back in this past weekend! I was accepted into the Artist Alley of the convention and I was able to vend Saffron Soleil’s Savories for the very first time at a huge convention! I have some pictures of the cosplay stuff I liked and recognized. (If you see yourself, let me know and I’ll credit you/link to your website/etc! I was very excited to see you!) I cosplayed too. Fairly casual stuff, compared to a lot of other impressive costumes! But it was a pretty interesting weekend, and HUGE learning experience for me. I’m also just so very ticked that many con-goers gave me valentines day cards and candies! It was greatly appreciated and it really brightened my day, especially since I had been sitting at my booth for hours and hours at a time. Big shoutout to Nicole Pisaniello for being my table buddy and all around great friend! I also got some AMAZING art trades this weekend too, From Yumi Lacquers and Non Dairy Confectionery. LOVED their work! I’m so happy to have met the people I’ve met, learn some things, and experience the con with lovely people. Great job everyone! Maybe I’ll see you another year.
(P.S. If you were the Tuxedo Mask in the photo giving my Catbug self a rose, MESSAGE ME! I want to give you a discount to my work because you seriously made my day. I have no idea if anyone will see this message, but I can try!)
