I apologize to everyone for not having updated regularly this month, to be honest the time just got away from me as I was preparing for my very first crafting booth at FAN:doms artist alley. My table was little but cute, I put a lot of work into hand sewing, embroidering and painting every item.
I was both excited and nervous about attending, my major concern was that nobody would like the things I had made, but luckily my best friend, Kaylyn, was by my side so I ended up not feeling worried at all! In fact I spent the whole weekend giggling and chatting with her in between selling. I was very happy that so many of my items sold, I took photos of some customers wearing my crafts.
A cute lolita, Laurie, wearing one of my big macaron rings.
Kristen and her little cupcake ring.
My cute customer, Kacy, show off her rings.
Besides selling things at the convention I also made new friends. The local artists were so fun to be around, my favorites were Kizzy and Miriam & Dee Jay of GenkiGoth Studios. We all wrote little notes back and forth, Miriam even drew me a special picture on the second day of the convention!
Me posing happily with my present. It is now proudly framed in my room.
The cute drawing in question, a lolita zombie! I love how her arm fell off.
When the convention was finally over I was exhausted but glad to have sold so many crafts and met so many wonderful people. Afterwards my new friends and I all went out to Waffle House for a well earned meal, we had hardly eaten at all the whole weekend! I am very pleased with how everything turned out at FAN:dom, I think I'm going to try going to more conventions soon. Keep an eye on my shop tab for details of Her Curious Elegance's upcoming artist alley appearances!
P.s. Check out the video I made of all my items!
