Well Unfortunately Anime Blues Con is over thus the after con depression has set in. We say Many cosplayers who had wonderful outfits got to see Deadpool again up to his normal hijinks. Artist alley was a huge hit for us so was the lack of sleep on Friday night and Saturday Night ( only got about 3 - 4 hours sleep if im lucky ) while working on bead art for people. Got to sit down with good friends at Benyhana's and enjoy a WONDERFUL MEAL on Saturday. I do think that will become a ABC tradition for us. We made at least 52 - 54% increased sales this year with the added Square reader for cards and being able to make items in perler beads for the table! We did have some competition this year by another bead work crew sadly they were for less than kind for people who came to their table. We got a look at their bead art they used in our opinion really crappy ironing you could breathe hard on their work and it would break. Other than that they lost a lot of business when people would by a couple key chains from them then come to our table and see much better done items for over 60% less than what they were charged. So if they come back next year they better have stepped up their game or like this year they will be stepped on it seems ;)
Voice actor wise we got to meet Steven Blum and he signed FF7-Advent Children Complete , and Cowboy Bebop Remix Perfect set. Steven was very down to earth and nice especially after he herd my service dog's name is Sephiroth ( Yes THAT sephiroth ). Next was Wendee Lee who has done MANY items in Anime she nearly was tackled by my SD when she invited him close to be petted. when that was over she signed Cowboy Bebop for me and Akira Collector set for a friend of ours. Then last was Chris Patton he signed 2 times on my Full Metal Panic! series being the actor who voice SGT. Souske Sagara.
Complaint side of things our table and the print artist across from us were put in a pretty crappy location with the cafe doors hitting his and our tables or customers who are browsing. Other than that only complaint I would have was a certain staff member stealing stuff from a friend of ours Dr. Turnbolt , riding his case when his chosen performance is allowed by the hotel and was allowed last year , but to top it off a staff member threatened to attack him....that was just WRONG.
