I-Con in Des Moines

I know, I should have done this last week, but better late than never, right?

As you might know, I did my first comic con in Des Moines. To be fair to others, many people have suggested over the years that I should do tables at comic cons, and I’ve shied away because I have novels, not a comic, but then at the expo last July I got invited to have a vendor table, so I thought why not. I’m glad I did, I enjoyed it a lot and sold all but one book. I could have sold more had I taken more.

So here’s the day told in pictures!

My set up.

We got there two hours early and it took twenty minutes to set up, so after that we kind of just chilled – literally, we chilled because it was the coldest i-con ever and we were near the door. Hubby had to go to the store to buy me a jacket to wear. While he was gone we watched other vendors setting up.

Though I ran the table, I did get to wander around just a little bit:

I mentioned hubby was there, but the bro came with me, as well, as I put him in charge of getting photos of cosplayers. He did a great job.

Baby was even there!

but alas all good things must end and we had to pack up.

While I’m probably not going to do Demi-con because it is too expensive vs what I can sell, I am looking into Quad-Con and will hopefully get to do this one again next year. If you’re in the area, be sure to come down for a lot of fun!
