HeroesCon 2015 Wrap Up!

HeroesCon 2015 wrap up!

On Friday we had our adorable niece with us. She went to HeroesCon when she was about five and was a bit overwhelmed, but she had a lot of fun this time. (As well as used her cuteness to finagle a plush out of me before heading home.)

There were lots of awesome cosplayers!

There is so much amazing artwork to be had at HeroesCon, so there was no way I was leaving without some. I totally need it because I have so much wall space! That was sarcasm, I have no wall space. I have negative wall space. This did not stop me from buying things, because LOOK!

“B is for Butts” and “Witness Me” are from my HeroesCon neighbor, Cassie Hart Kelly. (Her artwork is as cute as her daughter, who was rampaging about in a teeny dino outfit all weekend.) The “Witness Me” has about ten different nerd references. Aside from the obvious ones, every weapon is from something geeky, from Star Wars to Star Trek to Ninja Turtles. The strangely inspiration print at the top is from Erin Gladstone, who also makes adorable artwork with rude little foxes.

I couldn’t resist these cutie cute stickers from Cara McGee. She also draws punk rock versions of superheroes and makes lovely tea blends inspired by nerdy stuff. (Definitely check it out if you’re a tea drinker.)

My dumb fiance who wasn’t supposed to buy me anything also surprised me with this freaking ADORABLE Nux commission by Irene Strychalski. (Do you get the feeling I like Nux?) Her artwork is so lovely and I LOVE her coloring style.

A good chunk of Sunday was spent with my bestie, who is probably the cutest person. She also makes the cutest things, like the Gunther brooch and Ice King inspired crown she’s wearing here. Check out more of her cute outfits and handmade jewelry.

Plus Babs Tarr liked my Batgirl plush, which makes me dance in a little circle.

Now back to sewing! I’m working on some new smaller items as well as a few new characters in the standard sized plush for DragonCon, Baltimore Comicon, and NC Comicon.

It’s that time of year again, HeroesCon! This was the first convention I went to,  as well as my first official date with my fiancé. (Duh, we’re nerds!) It was also the first convention where I started selling my plush, so it’s pretty special to me. On top of that, HeroesCon is just a really fun show with a great atmosphere. It’s almost exclusively focused on comics and art, something different from most shows where the focus is more on sci-fi or pop culture. Alright, I’m gushing a bit. Check out my Con Plush gallery to see some of what I’ll have available and I hope to see you there!
