After my roller coaster ride from hospital to work to houses, I was finally able to accomplish 2 of my goals yesterday: actually publish and sell my work at a con. And note that it’s not just any con, it’s a yaoicon! A con that is perfect for me. Although I didn’t get to share much of my shota, …well, maybe there’ll be a ShotaCon next? Then we spend the con afterparties in jail. HEHE
Meatballs Fetichinne: CINNAMON RUBbed with a hint of Dark~Sweet~Soul is a collab group of gay graphic artist, Cinnamon Rub and leather craftsmistress, Jiandra of Dark~Sweet~Soul. We are set to cater to any fetiches/fetishes, that relates to MEAT BALLS! Oh you got the pun! And look at our logo. Do you notice anything? Notice it and I can brand you a pervert.
Yesterday was our first time… and also my very first time to expose myself and my works in public. Consider it our ‘Debut..’ no, ‘Virgin Release’!
Thanks to Dark~Sweet~Soul, and her mighty sales skills, we’ve sold out all our merchandise! This exceeded my expectations. Thank you, BLushCon, for bestowing us these opportunities (with “the Screwballs” getting included in their sold-out BL Anthology), customers, supporters (yay, Philippines!), friends and new friends, and insert whatever dramatic-thank-you-speeches here, as I cannot contain all my feels and gratitude. Oh, and thanks to my doctors too! orz
You think the hospital was my last physical challenge? A few hours before the con, while cutting the Tentacles bookmark, …ziiiip! the blade sliced through my left forefinger. Bright side, I’ve confirmed that the cutter is really sharp and is therefore worth the money!
I know, I know, I’ll take extraaaa good care of myself!
Things I learned yesterday: Most fujoshis are not used to seeing penises, there are a lot of fudanshis too!, I must make business cards next and I have to make my mask smaller!
In any case, this is mostly an aftermath post, to thank everybody and share what happened ‘behind the scenes’. Next will be highlighting the merchandise! I ran out of copies for myself so I’ll have them reprinted first. ^^;
Here’s a link to Dark~Sweet~Soul’s Blush Con report wherein she talked about the con in more detail.
