Otakuthon 2014 Con Report

Otakuthon has come and passed. I must admit, this was probably my best experience at this convention thus far. In the past, I've always been part of their artist alley and I noticed that compared to other cons, the sales and overall experience wasn't all that great.  I've also never done much at a con in general, aside from sit at a table for the whole weekend.  This year was very different because my buddy Alice came down and we did all the things. Hosted a workshop, got an autograph, watched a screening, shopped in the dealer's/AA, cosplayed, hung out with friends! I also had a few commission deliveries.

Anime North 2014 Con Report

Another year gone by! This year felt weirdly different because they changed the layout of the TCC.  I think we were actually better placed than the Dealer's Room; people seemed quite confused on where to go.

China Trip 2013

Whoops, I'm posting this like a month late! In my defense, I caught a horrible cold at the tail end of my trip and therefore got back jetlagged and sick. Meanwhile, I had to juggle Christmas-deadline commissions and respond to the 30+ people inquiring about winter commissions. Between fevers and headaches, I got a bit better, but I shot myself in the leg by going out. I then got sick AGAIN (different bug though) since my immune system was probably at an all time low. Once again, I was walking around feverish, having to shop for Christmas gifts and see some friends in town for the holidays. Christmas itself was an unusual ordeal since we had to go to Ottawa early for a funeral.  All in all, it was a hectic month to end a crabby year. Now, onto a quick recap of my trip in China!
