My GOD.

What a good con.

This year was much larger than last, a bigger venue with tons of space for everybody to set up and be comfortable was absolutely welcome and lovely.  I had SUCH a great time meeting, drawing, and talking with dozens upon dozens of people and spending it with my bud :iconjaehthebird:. Each day had so many fun panels run by the excellent moderator Gomaironin who kept things moving well and conversational. Everybody was friendly and nice and I got to meet a bunch of people from the community I hadn't before, such as Canid and Catgirl! Of course I also got to draw TONS, and lots of fun subjects that I will be hopefully posting a compilation of!

Note! If you bought a commission from me, I'd LOVE to get a picture of it scanned! If you don't have one, I THINK I was able to snap most of them, but I'll take whatever you can send me!

Additionally, I sold copies of my comic (Substitute Teaser, and the bonus which will be coming up soon!) and myriads of prints! I was THRILLED how many people bought work, thank you all so much for the support!

ONE PERSON GOT AWAY WITHOUT ME BEING ABLE TO GIVE THEM THEIR PURCHASE! I FOUND YOU LATER BUT YOUR MERCH WAS LOCKED UP IN THE BACK AND I COULDN'T GET IT. I'M SO SORRY, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH WITH ME SO I CAN MAIL IT TO YOU!!!

I do still have a couple physical copies of my comic left and many prints, and soon (once I figure out the shipping costs of various things) I'm going to be offering the chance to buy prints and have them mailed to you! I dunno if there will be an interest in it, but I'll still offer up the opportunity!

After the con, monday was spent with the amazing :icongreyofpta: going around and being a tourist in NY. We saw times square, rockefeller plaza, the nintendo store, central park, the natural history museum and had so many delicious foods while there, it was really an adventure!

Thank you so much to :iconjitenshasw: and Bryan for hosting the event, it was really an amazing feat you pulled it together two years in a row and I hope you'll be able to manage a third with the help of me and other members of the community (I really need to step up my input). I hope you'll all consider joining for it next year, this year had over 150 people in attendance and next year could be even BIGGER!

I wish I could have made it ... I cannot handle crowds, which is the main reason.  :)

I'm sorry to hear it, it was very fun and to be honest not a gigantic crowd. It was fun but people had their space :3

glad you had fun! out of curiosity, has the Nintendo store improved in the last few years? when I went there in '08 or so it was not super impressive (and the much-hyped "history of Nintendo" was like one glass case).
MilkyBody's avatar
I guess so, it was not amazing but it had a lot of fun stuff in it :D

It was great meeting you in person. We have to do it again.
MilkyBody's avatar

I'm glad you had a good time. I hope this con grows as the years go by. No pun intended. ^^ Also it was wonderful to see you. *nuzzles*
MilkyBody's avatar
Haha, ALL puns intended! It was awesome to see you too, I hope you can make the con properly next time!
KSapphire8989's avatar

Would've gone but it's too far and too pricey for me. So unless someone wants to offer me a hotel room for next year I'll miss next year too. :(
MilkyBody's avatar
Haha, I hope you can make it in the future, it really is worth the trip :3
iron-ninja327's avatar
I could afford a plane ticket. It's just a full room is too much. I'd need to room with someone to make the trip financially feasible. I wanna go SO BAD!

Another outstanding year! Always good to chat with you buddy, even though everything was quite the blur.
You did a tremendous job on the Expansion and Inflation panel. I am telling you folks, listening to this guy talk is a treat and worth the SizeCon ticket alone. He is eloquent, thoughtful, and always reverent about the subject matter.

Dawwww...you're being far too kind man! Thank you so much, and it was great to get to chat with you some too! Things definitely moved at a whirlwinds pace this year, hopefully we can get a 3 day con where there's even more time to just chill! :D

Ditto, Mabo was definitely one of the highlights of the inflation/expansion panel. I didn't want to bother him too much at his table because he was constantly drawing, commissions from what I assume, but he was still nice enough to take time to talk to myself, as well as anyone else who came up to talk to him.

Wait, you hung with GreyOfPTA and you didn't have any coffee? O,o!
MilkyBody's avatar
We went for coffee, but I don't drink coffee :P
Loner2000's avatar
Oh? :o

Guessing you drink energy drinks instead? =3
MilkyBody's avatar
nope! Nothing like that
