Preparing for HeroesCon and subsequently recovering from it kept me super busy, but it was completely worth it!
I’ve gone to HeroesCon for several years; it was actually my first “official” date with Bats. (We also met on a Star Wars forum. Oh yeah, super sexy.) I always have a great time spending money on toys and tee shirts, seeing friends, and generally geeking out. The last two years I’ve brought a doll with me during the day, and actually gotten a few custom orders from it. After the all the positive response both online and off I took the leap and bought an artist table for this year.

I’ve never been a vendor at anything this well attended and never sold at a comic convention period. In the month and a half preceding Heroes, I spent the most of my free time lately basically chained to my sewing machine. I made sixty dolls in a just over month. Yeah, SIXTY. That doesn’t include thirty little plush skulls and twelve Huttlets. I had nightmares about drowning in stuffing and had to climb over dolls to get to my sewing table.

I lucked out with a fairly good spot and a wonderful neighbor. Cassie Hart’s adorable art was a great compliment, although it was really hard to not continually run over there every time I made a sale. I did trade a zombie for an awesome owl pillow. My favorite zombie too, just so you can understand how cool she is. Go visit her website and buy things. Now! (Well finish reading this, then you can go.)
Which lead to probably my favorite picture for the whole weekend, Cobra Commander with his wee minion.

I donated one of my little Lion-O’s to the charity auction held on the first night of the convention. He went for a $100 and apparently was a big hit, yay! Lion-O hung out at the top of plush tower most of the weekend, holding his teeny sword aloft.
