Hey there everyone, I know this is almost a week late, I've been meaning to write this but I accidentally let time get away from me.
First off I wanted to say that I had a blast at Nightmare Nights, there was a lot of people there, some nice costumes, and some great vendors.
It was my first time being a vendor at a convention(or anywhere else for that matter), and it was certainly interesting.
On the first day of the convention some of the other vendors and I were in a separate room because the main Dealer's Den wasn't big enough to fit all of the vendors, but unfortunately since our room was off to the side not everyone noticed it, and since the room was small not too many people could be in there at one time. So that night the vendors and the convention staff worked out a way for everyone to be happy, so they took the vendors from that room and moved them to the hallways outside of the dealers den, and the main panel room.
Even though most of my time was spent at the table, I did manage to make it to a couple of panels that I wanted to see. What was really shocking though was on the last day I saw Amy Keating Rogers(one of the writers for MLP:FiM) walking through the halls just a few feet from my table, and I wanted to show my appreciation for the amazing work she's done for the show. So I gave her a print of mine that I thought she would like best out of the ones I had. I thanked her for the work she did, and she thanked me for the prints and nice words, then she hugged me(which I did not expect at all).
And then about an hour later I saw Tabitha St. Germain(the voice actress for Rarity, Luna, Granny Smith, Derpy, Photo Finish, other smaller roles) walking through the halls as well, so I grabbed one of my Luna prints and a Rarity print and I gave her those.
I thanked her for work on the show as well, and told her that she does a great job(I was amazed watching her switch quickly between her voices at the VA panel), and after a very brief conversation she hugged me as well(which again was very shocking, I'm not a hugger so they definitely weren't getting the hug vibe from me).
All in all, it was a fun time, and I plan on vending at several conventions next year
! Now I plan on going back to sleep for a month.
P.S. I wanted to thank all of the convention staff for the great job they did, they were really accommodating and understanding about the concerns of the vendors.
I also wanted to thank all of the people who supported me by buying some of my prints, you guys are awesome
