`Anime North is NOW OVER~! [PART 2 - Dolly Pink's Overall AN Experience]
Hehehe~! Even though I already did one post for Anime North, I thought I might as well make another one since I have some pictures.
As mentioned before... I didn't really enjoy this year's AN and Anime North 2009 is still by far my favorite. There wasn't too many cosplays that caught my eye and I noticed that the traffic within the convention centre wasn't as crazy as the years before. Even the dealer's room seem lacking in traffic as well and it's always suppose to be busy in there.
Despite the small traffic flow in the crafter's corner section, Dolly Pink still had a really eye-catching display and an amazing spot. Even the people that came by the stand agreed by saying, "WOW! Your stand is EPIC!!" and "OMG! This table is sooo CUTE~~~!!!!" I also had one girl come up to me asking to give me 'props' for the display [this wouldn't have been made possible without the help from Gen and Leah, again, thank you ladies!]. Lol~ Although all 50 tables at crafter's corner were filled, there wasn't many tables that had a full display like ours' and the items we had could be spotted 10 feet away because of all the pink mediums we used! If there's one big thing Dolly Pink and Pinkly Ever After had in common, it was our love for the color pink! I was selling mostly accessories that could fit in the categories of fairy-kei and lolita while Pinkly Ever After sold mostly clothes and accessories fitted for the everyday fairy-kei fashionista. I really love Robin's design for Pinku Project's dresses because of the multi-color tiers of ruffles!!! <3 But unfortunately she didn't sell any of those dresses otherwise I would have bought one. ^__^ Robin also did ask me to collaborate with her one day to make matching accessories for her new dresses but for now, the final details are still unknown at this point so please keep a look out for this collaboration in the future to come~!
For all 3 days, I was the one mainly in charge of the table because Robin and Leah had to do a lot of dance recitals with Pinku Project. As a result, it left me with little time to roam around to take pictures of the cosplays and con. Only when the crafter's corner closed for the night did I try to take pictures but most of them turned out blurry... So now I know in the future, that if Dolly Pink is ever going to succeed I need to invest in a new high-tech camera. I am planning to purchase a new dslr so please be patient for now with the blurry pictures...
Anyways, my overall experience this year at Anime North is still positive and although most of the panels I found were uninteresting I still got to meet a lot of interesting people including other members from Pinku Project, other old/new crafters, visual-kei/j-rock fans, lolitas and cosplayers. If I could improve anything for next year it would be anything dealing with my crafter's corner table. I would definately make a more sturdy display, a bigger table sign and more products. Also, I want to try and fit more free time for myself so I can explore the con a bit more. Other than that, I think everything went smoothly.
