Face Hugs are the Best Hugs!

We are big fans of buttons….I mean really. We love making them. We are also huge geeks. Put those two together and you get some really cool wearable fandom things happening.

We have been making several button sets and the first one went up today. A new set will be posted on our Etsy site everyday!

If you have something geeky or a random fandom (heh.) you’d like to see, let us know! We’ll see what we can make happen.

Good Times at the Tucson Comic Con

Last weekend, we had an artist’s alley table at the Tucson Comic Con. Not only did we get to hang out with some really cool people (Yvonne and Rachel at stitchmeupgood.com, Ravyn at crescentcanines.com, Lisa at manaoverdose.etsy.com, Emma at em2astudios.com (Thanks Emma for the sandworm decal!) ) and Daniel and Dawna at steamcrow.com, we saw incredible cosplayers, and met some all round great people!

Mike Olivares and his crew put on a stellar Comic Con! *Insert cartoonish old lady voice here* I remember going to one of the first Tucson Comic Cons and It was 2 ballrooms at at hotel downtown. *end cartoonish old lady voice*

Since then, it has really grown up.

This was the second time I sold my wares at Tucson Comic Con, and the fifth time of attending. I must say that T-town really comes out and supports local artists. It made me happy to see so many families. It’s fun to see several generations of fandom in one place.

All in all it was a really good time! I enjoy seeing peoples’ interpretations of their favorite characters from their favorite fandoms or what have you. There is even a local company that will come to you, take photos and make an action figure of you! Clifton at iconic3d.biz.

After making new pieces to bring to the TCC my studio looks like this:

And to conclude this post, I bring you the singing Yeti:

You will listen, ’cause if the Yeti ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.
