I recently got back from Dragon Spice's first official convention as a vendor, Mythicon! It was a first time convention, but I think there was a fairly good turn out. Everyone looked wonderful in their costumes and the artist alley as well as the Vendor room was often buzzing with life and excitement as the con goers stalked the tables for that special something they could not live without.
Despite my tasks as a Vendor, I managed to attend two panels that I enjoyed immensely. The first was hosted by Liam O' Brien and Sam Riegel, both well known and prestigious voice actors in the anime world, amongst other things, who put on a fabulous voice acting audition to show people just what it was like to try out for a role. I was one of the lucky people chosen to show them what I could do. Although, between you and I, dear fans, I think I will leave voice acting to the professionals. XD
I also attended a delightful panel by Grant George, who happens to be one of my favorite voice actors. He is the voice of Vyers and Axel in the Disgaea video game series. I was delighted to meet him. He had stopped at my table and bought a piece of jewelry from me, which thrilled me to the bone. ^^
The cosplay costume contest was also thrilling with a group of dedicated people strutting their stuff to upbeat music in costumes they had made mostly themselves.
So, in conclusion, Mythicon was an event teaming with life, a healthy appreciation of my hand made goods and many people who took one of my cards, anticipating the day my manga is released to the public. I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who purchased a little something from me at the Mythicon. By doing so, you are helping a fledgling company to get on its feet and show the world just what it can do!
We are going to be signing up for the Sands of Anime convention which is coming January of this upcoming year! It is in Cocoa beach and promises to be lots of fun with its promstuck and my pony party! Here is a link to its official website. They have a facebook too! http://sandsofanime.webs.com/
