As Hannibal would say, “I love it when a plan comes together.” Our second Mezasu mini-con is over, and despite feeling really really tired, I’m feeling pretty good about how the whole thing went. Some things I noticed:
- The old “can’t have fun when you work at a con” rule isn’t that big of a deal when you see everyone having a good time and have the opportunity to occasionally walk around and talk to people.
- I guess it was easier to notice this because this was a smaller event, but serious cosplayers tend to travel in packs…I don’t think I’ve ever just seen just ONE wandering about.
- The art auction was a huge bust, I think we need to do a better job of explaining how it works next time. 😦
- I believe you should always give your all whether 3, 30 or 300 people show up to your gig, which is fortunate for the 3 people that showed up to my podcasting panel.
- I am just not used to hearing my voice amplified; when making announcements or announcing raffle numbers over the PA speakers, I was worried about blowing out the speakers whenever I raised my voice.
- From the “beware of what you wish for” department: we asked, prayed and begged for rain, got it…and a brief power outage.
- Thanks to Madame Jaqueline’s Apothecary, I now know what a ‘bath bomb’ is and does. Freaky.
- I bought an Android mascot figure in a “blind box,” from Bean Pot Toiz but I have yet to actually OPEN it to see which one is in there. The anticipation is eating at me yet I don’t want it to end!!
- Considering how many times I was asked “How did you find this place?” I’m glad that we were able to make people aware of the nice facility and folks at Tripoint.
- At the same time, how can one not notice a building the size of a grocery store with a YMCA and a coffee shop?
- I forgot to pack cough drops and now my voice is a little hoarse. Hopefully it recovers by the time work starts on Monday.
- I don’t want to go back to work on Monday…then again, do I ever?
