PHOENIX COMIC CON!

Phew!!! What a crazy amazing awesome busy hectic scary bananas weekend the Phoenix Comic Con was!!!
It’s Thursday and I am still trying to catch my breath…and get a little extra sleep!

I learned a lot about my business this weekend and what kind of people might be interested in my services.
I also am fine tuning how to tell people what I do quickly-
“I’m a portrait photographer!” “I do pinups, like retro style portraits!” “I don’t know, just hire me! I’m broke” Hahahaha.

Mostly, I had an amazing time with my sisters and got to hangout with both of them all weekend (well, Grace didn’t do Thursday night…)
I watched Shannon KICK MAJOR ASS (pardon my french!) and get a ton of commissions and praise and love from everyone, despite our kinda crappy placement across from the huge lego train set which made everyone go “Oh look over there!” and pass right by our booth. I am so proud of her and so impressed by how her artwork continues to grow and get better and better. She’s a badass.

And Taryn came by on Saturday and we had an awesome time getting photos with all the amazing costumes and eating gross overly expensive “Chinese” food.

Even though I lost money (boo!) it might be worth it in the long run since LOTS of people took my card and were interested in my work. I thought I’d sell a lot more pinup paper dolls, and I was surprised that I didn’t sell even one single greeting card! But I did book a shoot on site, and I have lots of girls who might book in the future so who knows!

All I know for sure is I had an awesome time, got to be the Powerpuff Girls with my sisters the last day and despite an alarm and building evacuation right at the end of the convention (no really, like 45 minutes before it was suppose to end on Sunday we ALL had to leave the convention hall) the weekend was freaking awesome!
