I haven't been publishing updates as often as I'd like, but this doesn't mean I haven't been busy sewing and selling catnip toys! Last weekend I was an exhibitor at OshCon for the first time. OshCon is a tabletop board game convention held right here in my hometown: Oshkosh, Wisconsin. I have attended previously as a gamer, but this year was my first year as a vendor.
There was a great turnout this year, as you can see:
An intense battle of War of the Ring. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want to be responsible for defending the free peoples from the shadow forces on a Saturday.
My table was located in the "artist" room, previously referred to as the "gaming widows" room.
Here are some of the colors available for miniature painting. This brought a lot of people into the room which was great for sales.
Some people hard at work painting their minis.
I never noticed this until Adam start photographing my catnip toy adventures, but I seem to always sew with my mouth open.
Here I am sewing at my booth. I had a "make-your-own catnip toy" thing going on, hence the huge pile of felt. People seemed more interested in buying a toy that was already made than creating their own, though. Every time I sewed a Cthulhu catnip toy I sold it, so I was sewing them all day long.
