ComicCon recovery...

Hahaha...

Ok, the whole "keep blogger updated" thing didn't happen, of course... what was I thinking?!?!?! With the whole crafting thing and even more the social calendar of the Hobbitses ...

Ah well, let's try how it works now.

The weekend saw the Edinburgh Comic Con 2016 and I was manning my own stall both days (in the past it was always hubby and his "minions" - i.e. friends of ours - who helped with this stall selling my stuff) with early mornings and lots of standing (broken up with a bit of sitting).

Fab atmosphere at the new venue (EICC) made for real Comic Con feel, lots of space and lots of great Cosplay going on.

Items sold nicely, and the Hobbitses arrived in their costumes and had lots of fun with all the people being dressed up. They LOVED Elsa (they constantly stopped on the way out of the building to shout "goodbye Elsa!!"), the Star Wars props and taking photos with the props and with Green Arrow and Harley Quinn. :) Supergirl being without fear, while Miss Martian was more timid and needed some coaxing (well, she didn't want to have her photo taken with Green Arrow, which is nothing against The Arrow really! ;) ).



Now time out ... but quiet day has turned into bickering kids in living room (I really have to start transforming the big spare bedroom into their play room!!) so definitely NOT quiet!!! :o

We had the 3rd birthday party invite for this month arriving today, and 3 play dates are set up for this week alone! Seriously, the Hobbitses/SuperTwins have a busier social calendar than me!!

More crafty stuff coming along this week, but no more KatsGeekKrafts for the time being (wait... I've got orders for 3-4 kids' t-shirts.... huh!) until June-ish, me thinks. Then leisurely prepping for the Edinburgh Comic & Toy Mart  in November (yeah, because the "leisurely" happened this time round!! ;) ).

Anyway... I suspect I will update the blog a bit more regularly now.

OMG, Kat. We're you at the Edinburgh con last year? We couldn't go at the weekend but I got a fab tardis foldable tote bag last year (it still hangs on my bag) - it's not one of yours, is it?!

Kat said...

Ummm.... well, Lynz... if it was this one ... then yes! ;)

Tardis Bag

I've been selling things at the Con since last year (and the Mart from the year before, started off small with just cards ... then bags and coasters... now kiddy t-shirts as well.. ;) )
