Sunday Fun Day: Happy Days 47-60

I'm a week behind. I keep meaning to blog, but I haven't had the interest. Still, y'know. It's best that I get back on the horse and try to get back in the habit of daily blogging. Any who... Happy day photos from the past two weeks!

I apologize for the messy jumble of photographs. Not the best collection I've ever made, organization-wise, but whatever the case, they depict many happy moments!

Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo

This past weekend was the 2014 Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo. This year was four days of excitement, fun, fandom, and all of the good stuff that I look forward to every year. I ended up doing really well. 

This was my booth on Sunday (pirate themed), with Wendel having a great time. 

I got lots of great stuff.

And the whole weekend ended with me being the proud owner of a katana (twas a gift. It's not a good sword, but it's a katana, and I'm delighted by it). 

Now, I'm still really tired (we slept until almost noon), so this blog post isn't terribly exciting or motivated. However, I had promised that I was going to do a blog about what booths and people I was excited about. I fell through on that (sad. Sorry.), so now I am going to link to different artists and people that I met, and what I found most exciting.

Akumu Ink- T-shirts with cool designs. They're one of my all time favourite t-shirt companies. I grabbed their 'Dead Riding Hood' ladies tee.
Ragnaroth- 3D Printed items. I am the proud owner of one of their 3D Printed Fluttershy figures.
Elle Is A Monster- Portraits, buttons, and other bits of magic. She had these fantastic fandom themed floral crowns, and I grabbed one of her 'Ravenstag' floral crowns (pictured in the photo of me with my katana). 
Wasted Talent- Web comic by Angela Melick. I purchased a sketch from her (she drew my face!). 
Cute Glass- Amazing glass work. We traded items. My Game of Thrones hood went to a proud home, and I gave home to an amazing glass fox pendant. It's so cute! Not to mention the fact that the artists are some of the nicest people I've ever met.
Story of the Door- Beautiful art. She designed these fantastic knitted scarves, and man, are they cuddly and warm. 
Camilla D'Errico- She is probably the biggest name artist that I talked to and purchased art from. I decided to go with two small postcard sized prints, because otherwise I would have bought all of her art. It's so beautiful, and she seems like such a lovely person. 

There are probably way more people to check out... but that's all that I can think of for right now. I can't wait for next year! This year was unbelievable and surprising. Thank you to everyone who came out, enjoyed my work, and visited my booth!

Sunday Fun Day: Happy Days 40-46

Last week of school! Happy days! And one really bad day... but other than that, a good week! By the way, happy Easter everyone! Have a beautiful day. Sparkle sparkle sparkle.

Lots of selfies this week... Sorry about that... actually, kidding! I'm not sorry. I don't need to apologize. The last photo is my happy face, and I shouldn't feel any remorse for showing that off! Any who...

The Comic Expo is in just a few days. It's going to be crazy. I still need to finish some things, and on Wednesday I have to go into school to drop off my grad piece and go to a grad meeting. Not really excited about that... but such is life. I think I'm just less stoked because the comic expo starts on Thursday, so I feel like I have better things to work on. Ah well! I'm excited. Yesterday I played around with display on one of our tables. Good news is, the comic expo tables are two feet longer than the table I was playing around with. Good news... otherwise I wouldn't have enough room for everything! Tomorrow I make a quick run to Staples and the dollar store (if they're open... Otherwise I'll go on Tuesday) to pick up binder sleeves and safety pins and stuff. So much to do! So little time! Butterflies with combat boots stomping around in my stomach and flapping their wings! Aaaauuugghh!!! Squeeeee... I am really excited. I think it'll be a good year. Soon I'll be posting about what I'll definitely be seeing at the Expo, and who I intend to meet. Akumu Ink and R.L.Stine are going to be there, and both of those entities are exciting!
