It has been quite a while since my last post but today I am here to talk about my very exciting weekend at Animecon!
Last weekend was the first time I ever was at a convention as a dealer/ stand holder with Princess Apparel! Together with my partner in crime Charlotte, who made an awesome blog post about it here, we terrorized the dealer room trying to sell everyone adorable items!~
The stand on Saturday! Thanks to Juujube for this pic!
Let me try to put things in chronological order~ I knew I was going to animecon only 2 weeks in advance! This meant that I spend my days from 08:00 till roughly 0:00 behind my sewing machine sewing together bows, collars and more bows! I also spend some time creating things like rings, chokers, necklaces and earrings. Those 2 weeks have been extremely stressful and they reminded me of my graduation, where I hardly slept and only worked and worked and worked. On friday, the morning of the convention I was so done with everything I didn't even want to go anymore ... xD This is me being really honest. But as soon as I was there, building up my stand together with Charlotte who always knows just how to calm me down, I was really happy with the result of my hard work! Unfortunately though, through all the stress I forgot to put my SD card in my camera so I was left with my phone and Charlotte's camera xD Therefore you will see a lot of te same picutres. But pictures I haven't shown are pictures of some of the items in progress!
A bunch of new necklaces
Earrings and Rings. The rings were really popular and some styles sold out!
Seifuku Collars that were really popular as well! People really liked the idea of wearing these over any type of clothing!
And bows, bows, bows!
Okay so the get back on the topic of Animecon, let me show you some of the pictures from the booth! I stole all of these from Charlotte so you've probably seen these allready ^^
So those are the pictures from my booth! I got a lot of positive feedback on how cute it was, and some guys were scared by the huge amounts of pink! XD I had been really nervous on how people would react to the stand and the items I created but the amount of positive reaction was absolutely overwhelming! And this way I want to thank everyone, friends and friendly strangers, once again for coming by to buy stuff or small talk!
I also want to share my looks of the 3 days! I did my best to showcase some of my items so people could have a better idea of how they looked worn. Here is my face x 3! As you can see the looks were quite different. The first day I looked simple because of the stress and the hear, wearing one of the seifuku bows. The second day were were wearing our Yukatas and tried to look really cute to match the stand! I was wearing one of the bling bow necklaces that will soon be online! And the 3rd day we decided for a goth gal look, and I decided to wear the popular gold chained cross choker! These were extreeeemely popular at the convention, and I just ordered a bunch of extra materials to make more and more chokers like these!
And here are some pictures of me and my lovely co-host Charlie ♥ This weekend wouldn't be half as succesfull if she wasn't there to help me out!
All in all I had an amazing weekend, and I'm looking forward to other conventions! I have applied for several other conventions and I hope I will be able to make those even more succesful! All the items that you currently see at the stand, but aren't at the site yet will be added to the store in the following weeks! Do note that most of the items are limited editions, so if you want some before they hit the online store message me at info @ princess-apparel .com!
The next con that's on our list will be Moshi Moshi con! If you haven't bought a ticket yet, please check it out as the pre-sale is only 15 euros! I will do my best to make heaps of new stock, special sales exclusively for the con and I will even try to make some clothing pieces! I hope to see a bunch of you there!
