So for the past 6 months or so (although it feels a lot longer than that) my friend Elizabeth Kolodziej and I have been getting ready for Faerie Con East. I have been wanting to go for YEARS and I finally got the chance to be a vendor. It was expensive, between the table space and the hotel it definitely burned a hole into my budget (which is why I’m going to take a break from conventions and other events for a while) but it was definitely worth the trip. Got a chance to make some amazing friends and got a little bit of magic added to my weekend. So many beautiful costumes and incredibly talented people were there.
I also brought my dearest friend Kristen (aka Megumi Kitten) with me and she did some incredible artwork while we were there.
Got a chance to listen to a little music at the masquerade ball (yes! I got to go to a ball!). Didn’t stay long because Elizabeth and I were so TIRED. But at least we saw everyone dressed up and listened to SJ Tucker (who was amazing by the way). Saw a small parade of Green Men (they gave me an acorn). Green for Health and Green for Wealth. Definitely hanging on to my acorn and taking it with me everywhere.
Sold a bunch of copies of First Frost and Glass Frost which was awesome. 🙂 But I am so happy to be home. I missed my husband, my kids and my house. I don’t sleep well in hotels or strange places. Basically, the only place I can fall asleep is my own bed. LOL
Anyway here are some pictures I took at Faerie Con East!
