Con Report: Jet City Comic Show 2014

The con season for me ended this year with Jet City Comic Show, November 8th in Tacoma, WA, and while the show has always been a slow one for me, it was still a quieter end to the season than I’d have liked. Oh well!

Con Report: Bellingham Comicon 2014

Right on the heels of Geek Girl Con was Bellingham Comicon on October 18th, a small, one-day affair up near Bellingham, WA, though more accurately, it took place at the Ferndale Events Center in Ferndale, WA.

Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much out of it, especially since the other one-day comic show in the area I’ve done, Jet City Comic Show, has been thus far unimpressive. But hey, overhead was low and I’ll do most shows at least once… And I ended up being totally blown away by how amazing BCC was.

Bellingham Comicon, go!

Con Report: Geek Girl Con 2014

Coming up on my thirteenth convention of the year, and especially after a very busy August and September, con fatigue has been setting in hardcore.

Thankfully, Geek Girl Con — a two-day show, October 11-12, in downtown Seattle — was small and local: something low-stress and low-key after a flurry of busy or out-of-town shows.

Con Report: Rainfurrest 2014

Three days after Rose City Comic Con was Rainfurrest, the furry convention in Seattle, or more accurately, in Seatac, at the Seatac Airport Hilton and Conference Center.

I was hopeful for a busy weekend, especially since RCCC was a bit of a bust. Last year was nice for the most part, but I wasn’t working at capacity on commissions, which make up a vast majority of the business at fur cons. This year went off to a similar start — it’s officially a four-day show, but still not a lot of people show up Thursday. I got my wish pretty quickly once Friday rolled around though…

Con Report: Rose City Comic Con 2014

Rose City Comic Con is a two-day comic convention in Portland, and this year it ran September 20th and 21st. RCCC is partnered with and shares a lot of staff and resources with Emerald City Comic Con, so I figured they’re similarly run and attract a similar crowd.

ECCC 2013 wasn’t a particularly good show for me as a vendor, which is one of the reasons I didn’t attempt RCCC 2013. I went to ECCC 2014 as an attendee (and table helper to my friend Kara) and decided afterwards that I’d rather do so-so as a vendor than feel weird as an attendee (and I always feel weird as an attendee), so I’m on board again to vend at ECCC 2015. RCCC was still iffy for me because of travel reasons, but Laura invited me to join her carpool down for the show and then, as usual, I figured, “I may as well give it a try.”
