So flisters, you may or may not have noticed a lack of any activity from me from about...mid November. The main reason for that being my friend and I were last minute confirmed for a table at the gaming convention Magfest. This of course meant the 5 months I originally had to make my little dolls suddenly became 1.5 and i had to crochet and sew like a mad woman.
All the work paid off in the end though as my friend and I had a kick ass time at the con and each made over 1k selling our geeky crafts. :D We were also interviewed! So if you'd like to see a tired Saturday morning me takling about my stuff then just click on the link here
The most surprising thing for me at the con was just how
popular Doctor Who was with gamers. I sold my 11th Doctor
, 10th Doctor
, 10th Doctor in Blue
, and a plush TARDIS
. Only poor Rose
didn't sell :( Though I gave out lots of business cards to people anxious to see what new Doctor Who dolls I would make, so that's exciting as I love new friends/stalkers. ^_^
Two girls also made my weekend by knowing who/where my Hatter
doll was from and we gushed over Mr. Potts for a good few minutes. :D
This was my first convention where I've been able to talk to people who are buying my dolls and it was really great to see how many people like my little creations, and talk to them about them. As such, I do have about 5 doll commissions to make before I can get started on new ones for my next convention in April (A comic con so lots of superhero dolls coming this way soon), but before then I want to churn out some new chapters for Curious and Curiouser. Poor chapter 11 has been in my head since June and I'd like to reward my faithful readers by writing up maybe another 4-5 chapters to post over the next 2 months so that while I'm working on dolls and things I don't have to worry about trying to write at the same time.
I'd also like to get some chapters written for my DW/Alice crossover New New Wonderland as I really want to get to the second arc as I've FINALLY over the last few months started to figure out how I'd change the plot of Alice. :)
Well, I've got one gaming onesie commission down and one to go before starting my dolls, but I'll be around the interwebs while I work so you should start seeing me around more. ^_^
