Mini-Mini Con 2016

Mini-Mini Con 2016

This past Saturday we attended Mini-Mini Con at the Wonderland of the Americas! We did really well and it was great seeing everyone who stopped by our booth! It looked like everyone was enjoying the little convention. It’s great to see a free event like that do so well and expand further within the mall. We hope that it does even better in the future!

For this convention we had some mystery boxes for sale with various little goodies inside! Each box contained 1 mini print, 2 buttons, 1 shrink charm, and 2 laminated keychains! They sold out within the first two hours we were there, which was very exciting! We’ll probably do more of them at our next con!

Also new to our stock for this con were three holographic Pokemon starter bookmarks, and a set of Osomatsu-san buttons. We were excited to debut these as well!

We received a couple commissions at this convention too. Overall it was really nice for a little one-day con. Thank you to everyone who stopped at our table! We hope to see everyone again at San Japan too!

Mizuumi-con 2016!

Mizuumi-con 2016!

We went to Mizuumi-con 2016 this past weekend. We had a fantastic time and saw a lot of familiar faces. I (Sam) have been going to OLLU’s cons since Zero Day Anime back in 2007. Seeing Mizuumicon now spread to two days was interesting. Saturday was quite busy and there was a lot of energy to the con. We gave away some freebie macaron cat stickers and handed out fliers to anyone wishing to attend Hetalia Day in October. By the end of the day we were out of stickers.

We managed also to sell our new prints from Splatoon and Pokemon, so that was very encouraging! Sunday was, as expected, a bit slower. We got a total of 12 commissions over the weekend, so that was quite fun to do. We also happened to have our table across from voice actor Chuck Huber. We’ve seen him a number of times at other conventions (mostly Realmscon) and have had him sign pictures for us. So this time, we gifted him with a drawing of Austria from Hetalia. He was pretty pleased with it.

We’re quite excited to see where Mizuumi-con will go from here. We plan to try to attend the new con if/when it appears.

Realms Con 11

Realms Con 11

Realms Con took place in Corpus Christi, Texas about two weekends ago. Well, unfortunately as soon as we drove home we had to pack our bags for a Michigan trip and be gone for another week. We also happened to catch a cold and get sick during and after the trip. So as you can see, we’re a little late with the con update!

WE didn’t really have too much in the way of new stuff to sell. In fact, we forgot to bring our banner with the sandwich logo that everyone usually compliments us on. It’s our one memorable thing and I forgot to pack it!! Bannerlessness aside, we did fairly well as commissions were pretty popular at this con! We seem to get a good amount of requests for the postcard sized ones and they’re quick to do, so we’re grateful to get them.

Jam also had enough time to do some special cards and get them signed by the English voice talent at Realms Con! We plan to give these cards out for free during Hetalia Day next weekend. We also gave some freebie buttons to these voice artists. Austria (Chuck Huber), Romano (Ian Sinclair), America and Canada (both played by Eric Vale) were all super kind and signed our cards. We know the fans who get them will treasure them.

So far all that’s coming up for us is Hetalia Day on the 24th of this month. We didn’t want to go to Ikkicon this year, but we will be looking forward to Spring and Summer con sign ups soon!
