Dragoncon 2019! Thank you to everyone who came by and showed loved and support for my brand. This was the 1st time I got to vend at such a large spot at this convention. To me it was a big deal. A lot of prep work went into designing the booth layout and the production of the all the extra clothing I brought. Worth! I couldn't have done it without my team. Mega Big Thank You to Michelle Gonzalez, CJ Golden, and my lovely boyfriend Alexander Marrone. You guys were my rock!
The highlight of the weekend was when Cherami Leigh (Voice Actress for Sailor Venus) stopped by the booth and bought my Punk Sailor Venus Vest! Ahhh! I couldn't believe it was happening. I felt validated by a sailor scout. She took photos of my work to show the other sailor scouts. My heart was about to jump out of my chest! She said she had considered dressing up as her character and always thought it would be a punk version of her character. It was meant TO BE! Thank you Cherami for supporting Independent Designers!
Big Thank you to Myrlena and Erica! These girls have been following me along for a few years and have continued to support my brand in a big way. Myrlena purchased my logo Crop top and her coordinated
outfit almost brought me to tears. Erica has not only 1, but 2, of my l.e.d. Jellyfish skirts in her collection. She wanted to buy the newest version even before the convention started!
There are so many new people I met during the weekend that were incredibly sweet. One person bought over 10 hats from me! Another guest had me autograph his jewelry purchase. I was floored! So many good things happened. I will be back next year and I can't wait to see everyone again!
