Lengthy blog incoming (then again, when has my blogs not be lengthy at all lmao)
SYDNEY SUPANOVA '14
So I finally have some downtime to write up a report on my shenanigans at Sydnova this year. I didn't trade this time due to not having the funds for it at the time.
Despite the fact about not being able to trade at Sydnova, I still wanted to go as I'd be able to meet up with old friends that I hadn't seen in over a year and we hung out with each other over the duration of the weekend.
Before meeting up with them, I had already made plans to go to the venue with my cousin
and his friend
. Nyan wasn't able to walk around too much so they spent most of their time at the con sitting down, so I decided to wander off on my own. I decided to go to the LoL community Teemo party that was organised by fellow community members but main reason I went was to go meet up with one of the Riot staffs that was also attending as we had being acquainted online through NZ's LoL community, LoLNZ, where I was one of the admins for at the time. He was a pretty cool dude in person, so I got to take a pic of him, holding up two of my LoL fanarts haha.
The photo on the right is me winning the fan art contest. I didn't want to enter but my friends talked me into it. Glad they did haha, because I managed to win the judge category and according to the staff, my prize is a Wacom Cintiq. Not sure entirely, they just said that I won the big
tablet with the screen, so I can only assume that it is indeed the cintiq lol (I was advised that someone would contact me but still nothing. Tried to ask the supanova staff about and they said that they'll look into it for me. Still waiting for them to get back to me >_>)
That didn't happen until the end of Sydnova though. The rest of the time, I spent walking around, saying hi to a few of the artists I knew that had stalls in the artist alleys. Still regretting not trading at Sydnova because it looked like they had a blast having tables but oh well, there's always next year for me. Other than that. I didn't get up to much at Sydnova. Fun weekend was fun!
NEW CLOTHING LINE
Some of you may have noticed through my facebook page. I've started printing t-shirts to sell as well but I didn't have a label for them but thought using my artist name/real name as the name for the label would sound super cheesy (to me anyway lol)
So now, I've decided on a label that I will be using for my current and future fashion designs. QUIRK SOCIETY. Really excited about this as this is all new terrain for me but I'm getting A LOT of support for it so I figured, why not! Here's a sneak peek at what I have in store for everyone! (:
I plan to debut it at the next convention coming up in Sydney that I've already signed up for (will soon talk about it in the next part of this blog) but still sorting out the logistics for it as I'd want to sell two new pieces because I don't have enough funds/time to restock my two previous shirts. Fingers crossed!
SMASH! CON '14
So I'll be sharing a table with the lovely NyanStrike
(be sure to check out her stuff and her youtube
she has awesome artwork). We're still waiting for the organisers to get back to us if the social media, venue map, etc. are ready for us to advertise to our followers but knowing organisers, they'll probably release it a week before the convention lol (Will update this blog once we have received an update about the venue map).
If you're planning to attend, you can still pre-order online tickets
until the 1st of August. And if you have already sussed that out. Be sure to drop by our table and say hi!
If you have any burning questions, just let me know in the comment section. Or for whatever reason, you feel the need to ask me about anything and everything as anonymous lol, you can hit me up on my ask.fm @ ask.fm/goldhedgehog
Until next time!
