So AFO is a no go, by my own choice. A combination of a not very good artist alley experience last year and costs to attend wouldn't be worth it.
AFO's artist alley has gone downhill since from what I remembered a couple years ago. They cram everyone on tiny 3.5ft tables when the average artist in artist alley needs, not wants, NEEDS a whole table to properly display their merchandise to attract more customers. Last year I had to keep half of stuff behind the table because I couldn't display it. It's slightly annoying. And we're forced to buy a 3day pass with purchasing a table. $75.00 and only one badge. Not to mention costs for hotel, and transport to get up to Orlando. Maybe if we were able to get a whole table sure. But why should I spend, $300 (not including the  $75 table fee) to get up to Orlando, to have a 3.5ft table space, have people screaming at me when my 1 single friend tries to keep me company behind the table, as per the rules yada yada. No thanks. -__-; I'm going to have stick with local cons so Mizucon is going to be my next one. And possibly EXPcon because St. Augustine is near and dear to me ;__; and I want to go back. I think that for artist alley if they are going to make us pay for a 3day badge, put us inside the dealers room. And give artist an opportunity to get a whole table. I like AFO as a convention but their artist alley experience each year keeps ruining it for me and the return isn't worth it.


:bulletblue:Mizucon (Miami)
:bulletblue: Expcon??

Was just about to ask about this..guess I should have checked dA sooner.
Stinks that you couldn't make it..I figured it was something along these lines since I didn't see you out there.
Really hate that you couldn't make it. I hope to make it to one of the show's you'll be at down the pike.

Just heard this weekend about Wasabicon in Jacksonville ( [link] ), so we may be doing that, not sure, and we're planning on going to FanDom in Pensacola again this year ( [link] ).

Aw man, I'm was hoping to check out your table at AFO... I'm carpooling with a bunch of people. Any words of advice for me?

Ah! Sorry about your experience with AFO, but in the least you have a few more cons to look forward to. Any chance you can try Shado-con? Like, not really as a AA kind of thing, but con fun?

Shado-con is a con I'm going to try going and from what I've seen has been running for it's third year this year, it's a con in Tampa ^^. From the looks of it on the website it looks interesting- [link] and if not that, there's the final one in Florida Holiday Matsuri.

Look at the bright side; at least you had a choice in the matter.
I was all scheduled to go to Omincon in Brownsville July 6-7 when the day job announced all vacations for July were cancelled. :(
