|Like the start of the climax of a horror film.|
Ginormous shout out to my manager by the way, for kicking ass on helping me print AND driving to Reno. You are one strong lady and super inspiration to me.
View from the hotel room the first morning. Good morning WW Truck!
Iron Chef had to be my favorite cosplay of the weekend.
This was a commission from a wonderful customer. I enjoyed making it so much, that I think I will make more to sell in the future. I didn’t want to let go of it when I finished. She was so excited when she came to pick it up. She was dressed as Harley, her husband was dressed as Deadpool (and purchased one of my Deadpool ornaments), and their son was Flash, and wanted to know why he didn’t get one. Apparently he already had one at home.
Shit that you find when the convention starts to break down.
Also, a perfect example of how I was feeling as we were doing load-out.
|It of course had to have something to do with a wolf.|
So here I am after an early morning of sewing, a day of selling, an extra long breakdown and load out, dragging ourselves to food, and then finally getting back to our hotel. Typically we can kick butt and work hard and breakdown/load out can be completed in under an hour. This time around, with our double booth, extra merch, etc., it took about two and a half hours. Needless to say, we were both exhausted.
In the end, gambling was eh. It’s like a video game where you only get to hit one button, and no shit blows up. I was also highly disappointed that George Clooney, Matt Damon, and Brad Pitt didn’t stroll in and turn the house upside down. Those Ocean’s movies gave me high expectations.All in all though, I look forward to returning to Reno for another con in the coming years. It was nothing like I expected.
This was our gorgeous view from the car, shortly before I fell asleep.
And this was the not so gorgeous view from the car, shortly after waking up and not knowing where I am and wondering if I’m high because there are dinosaurs outside.
I stumbled half-asleep from the car to take pictures.
