Special sneak peak at a new item that’s going to be premiering at Otakon this week! These are the prototypes I made back in December of Crabby the mascot for Otakon. At first they wanted just the red but the blue had such a good reception they were both ordered.

I’m currently working furiously to get the final versions finished and ready to meet new friends this weekend. Please wish me luck and stop by the official Otakon merchandise table in the Dealer’s Room to take one home.

I believe there are still some available at the Otakon Merch booth this year at Otakon. I'm going to be trying to make another small batch to supplement it. There will also be a small version available using the pattern I created but only in red.

Oh how I miss Otakon...I loved going there every year!  The inner harbor is so awesome.  I WISH I could have been there and snagged one of these guys up.  I love the blue one! 
Totally reminds me of summer.  Bein' hot, cosplaying for days and eating yummy foods.

These are just too cute. Do you have any left over? I checked for them Friday and Saturday and no one knew anything about them. I wasn't able to make it to the dealer's room on Sunday due to the concert. There's a thread on the Otakon forums about other people being sad they missed out as well.

Unfortunately due to a bunch of issues eating up time, I'm also on staff, they weren't able to be 100% finished until Sunday. There are plans of a return appearance next year and possibly availability Otakon booths at other conventions though they will be extremely limited at the later.

That's because they showed up Sunday with only about 2 hours for the guys to sell them all. I know because I was literally in line to get my con gear when they pulled the cuties out. In other words, someone messed up somewhere and they showed up 2 days late.

Yea, the screw up was on my part. I had to scramble to finish them up and have them delivered when they were. You would be absolutely shocked how long those legs and claws take to put together.

There's a post on the Otakon forums I just put up explaining the situation a bit better.
