Saturday July 7th saw my cosplay group and I at Minicomi. Both fortunately and unfortunately we were placed right by centre stage, while we got a lot of people going past our booth it was very loud during announcements.
As far as a cosplay related events go it was great, there were a lot of people walking around dressed. But considering it was supposed to be an artists’ market it was a bit of a flop. The cosplay element was over emphasized and there weren’t a lot of people looking to purchase. Don’t get me wrong, I made more than last year but I still only sold one item and did not cover the cost of the table or travel expenses, and I made less than $2 for every hour I was behind the booth. Still, I suppose it was nice seeing people I know from the cosplay community around.
I myself purchased a pair of welding goggles for a costume and an adorable keychain with a traveller on it from the PS game Journey.
And that is really all I have to say about that.
I will be attending the Summer Festival in Burnaby this July 21st, I'm looking forward to this quite a bit as i really enjoyed it last year.
