Well, it’s really not New Year season anymore….but this past weekend WAS Lunar New Year! Which I’ve, frankly, celebrated since I was a kid. So I’m going to post my resolutions now, for posterity’s sake, because I don’t remember my resolutions for 2017 and I would really like to be able to look back this year and see where I’m at.
It’s been a long summer for sure and yet, it went by in a hot second! Bob and I are spending the fall season “homeless” in Texas, with plans to travel to California, Mexico, probably back to NYC, London??? and maybe even Taiwan again for a minute, so we decided “why have an apartment?” SO I’ve spent the last week or two slowly filling orders (I’m lucky and thankful) while also slowly filling in the shop with new items I came out with during this con season! How exciting!
One thing I’ve noticed that is starting to deeply disturb me is the ATROCIOUS LIGHTING in every artist alley ever. Like, I get it that we’re always in a convention center or hotel, this isn’t really like a shock but it’s starting to bother me. Whose prints look good in this lighting???? Look at me. I look like an alien who has just eaten the blood of an enemy (ie colourpop avenue ultra matte lipstick) (side note: do not recommend that lipstick)
I’m currently getting ready for AnimeFest (my last Artist Alley of the season, as of now) but I also just got back from Mechacon- seriously doing back-to-back conventions is insane. I’m running around like a chicken with its head cut off here trying to scramble together a whole convention’s worth of stock BUT I’LL MANAGE. In the meantime, have some Mechacon feels!
I’ve started my first giveaway thru Tumblr– how exciting! The weather is getting cooler in my new home base of Brooklyn. I wanted to include fun festive things, like a fox mug to go with a plushie leftover from San Japan- I have an unnecessary collection of animal-shaped mugs, so I thought “why not share that love”. This giveaway has got everything you need for a cozy fall tea cocoa party with your new fox friend!
