What an absolute BLAST that I had at the Comicsfest yesterday! This had to be the best year yet, and it’s only the second year running. The energy of the environment and from the people was positively outstanding. Everyone got their free comics, got to meet some amazing illustrators and writers, and grabbed some sweet loot.
The size of the crowd was amazing, considering everyone had thought it was going to rain during this event (no rain!). The people I met were amazing at this comicsfest. I had many long talks with multiple people about my craft, sewing in general, and what everyone had done themselves. I felt, in a way, I was inspiring to some people to do the same thing that I had done, and to never quit themselves. The energy of it all only made me want to run laps around the block.
With my parting message, I want to say thank you everyone for their amazing support and smiles. You have been and inspiration to me, and provided a unique happiness from the opportunity of me showing what I have done in my spare time within a matter of months. I woke up at 4a.m. this morning because I was so amped to start planning for the comicsfest of 2017, and other items to create for my Etsy store!
Ahh! Can you believe this fabric exists?! I couldn’t, so I had to grab some of this fabric and make it into awesome wallets to be sure. It has two outer pockets, and a zippered pouch with two inner pockets. It is all held together by a single snap. Did I mention these wallets were freaking amazing?!
These wallets will be featured at the Free Comic Book Day Festival in North Hollywood, this Saturday at 10am-4pm. Can’t make it? Don’t worry! My Etsy store will be full soon!
Second featured item for the Comics fest are these rad Batman clutches! Be prepared to defeat any evil in Gotcham City with this bad boy. Glitter vinyl exterior and quilted yellow fabric as the bat symbol and the interior as well, and held together with a single black snap. Can be used as a sole clutch, or even a makeup bag.
This clutch will be featured at the Free Comic Book Day Festival in North Hollywood, this Saturday at 10am-4pm. Can’t make it? Don’t worry! My Etsy store will be full soon!
First up on the spotlight list is zippered pouches! All are lined, and the outer fabric is vinyl, which will protect the rad fabric. Seriously fun pouches. I use them for my inking pens, but can be used for other things as well (Ladies? Need to have unmentionables in your purse?).
This style of pouch will be featured at the Free Comic Book Day Festival in North Hollywood, this Saturday at 10am-4pm. Can’t make it? Don’t worry! My Etsy store will be full soon!
Ahh!! I can’t believe the second annual Comicsfest that Blastoff Comics is hosting! I could have swore the last one just happened. Regardless of time flying (and partially me not paying enough attention to the calendar…) I still have plenty of things planned, created, imagined and sewed for my booth at this event. My goodness, I cannot be more excited about this.
If you happen to local to Los Angeles this weekend, please give me a visit! But not just for my sake. There will be quite a lot of other handmade sellers there, as well as many many illustrators, writers, and amazing comics, of course.
Wow, what an amazing experience that I just had on the 2nd of May. It was Free Comic Book Day, and I had an incredible opportunity to set my first booth up next to some fantastic illustrators, authors, and comics. That alone was exciting enough; to be amongst creative people. But in no way did it end there. Cosplayers were walking around the crowd, there was a beer garden (Firestone Brewery; amazing beer, by the way), and great food.
And no, that wasn’t the end of it. I got to meet some amazing people at this festival. Every single one of them was kind, generous, thoughtful, and respectful. They all provided great feedback towards what I sewed, my booth itself, and me as a person (got quite a lot of compliments towards my dress…). In no way, would I take anything away from this experience.
Next up: I am now currently adding items to my ETSY STORE!
