Bad hair calls for "KAWAIDESUUU" hats.
So for all of you who are uninformed and live in a hole (and by a hole I mean not West-Canada), Animethon is the annual anime convention held in Edmonton, Alberta. One of the two Anime Conventions I attend (the other being Otafest). I went last year to waddle around and be unconstructive, quite possibly did a crappy sketch or two and sold some prints.
This year was a little different @ Animethon for me, under the constant influence of my girlfriend's nagging we joined up Artist Alley and I managed to sketch a whole wad of people. I also managed to sell a couple of prints, but since it was sort of a last minute thing I didn't manage to get off as many copies as I wanted and sold out fairly quickly. I also forgot to bring my business cards so I doubt my DA will get a lot of bonus visitors T_T
I think I did fairly well this year, selling exactly $795 dollars in prints/sketches. Unfortunately that number doesn't include the 15% reduction from sales that the convention puts on Artist Alley participants (At least it's capped at $60), Hotel prices ($25, it was split between 18 people.), Ink prices ($20 per cartridge, I think I had to buy 4), 8.5x11 photo glossy paper ($35 for a pack of 100 sheets) and food. At least I didn't have to split for gas, kekeke. I hope to sell $1000 worth of prints/sketches next year~
In the cosplay department I sported my Naruto: Shippuden's Uchiha Sasuke outfit again [link] that I was wearing at Otafest. It got quite a few "o0o0os" and "aAaAas", what with those Sharingan contacts and all. I want to post pictures but I always forget to take them and I only wore the outfit for the first day since we slept in too late the second day.
So instead, I went as "L" from Deathnote which only took some eyeliner and a pair of jeans and a white-shirt. The funny part is that I probably ended up being one of the best L's there as well, HARHARHAR.
I was looking forward to attending the Narutimate tournament at Animethon this year, since I whoop so much ass at the game but they were all too busy with Super Smash Melee. I should've gotten a Gamecube just to master that game too >_>
P.S. My girlfriend made an awesome Misa from Deathnote, in fact I can honestly say she was the best one there even if I weren't dating her. 8B
