Good times at ConnectiCon 2010

Hi sticky pals! I’m now more or less recovered from the very good time I had at ConnectiCon in Hartford, CT last weekend. The con is mostly focused on anime, cosplay, gaming, webcomics, and other crazy stuff, so there were a TON of people having a very good time, and often more than half the crowd was in costume. Some of my favorites were the steampunk outfits, zombies, and Silent Hill costumes, although almost everyone wearing anime ears was totally adorable. There were so many cool people there in general. Good vibes all around.

I was a webcomics guest at the event and had a table in the artists colony. I was giving out free sticky comics postcards, which I ran out of early on Saturday, and selling sticky comics merchandise. We launched two new items last week before the con: The Steampunk Mr. Peanut t-shirt and the new Brass Goggles Neckerchief, both of which are kinda steampunky things that we designed and screeenprinted ourselves. I sold a lot of merchandise and am almost out of Jellyfish tees and tote bags now. It was badass meeting so many other people who love jellyfish. (Not being stung by jellyfish, just their mysterious jelly ways.)

One of the best things about ConnectiCon is how much fun the webcomics people have there. I got to hang out (and drink beer in rather large quantities) with a lot of great webcomics people. Here is a list that took me many hours of sobriety to remember:

I spent most of my time during the con at the Sticky Comics table meeting people and selling swag, but I also got to break away for a few minutes to attend the webcomics charity action, where I auctioned off a few things and raised $90 for charity! Yay. I also got to see the first bout of the Super Art Fight, which totally rocked. If you ever get a chance to go to one, do it.

ConnectiCon staff is awesome. We had a particularly badass time with Nick and Andy. You guys are the best. And lastly, honorable mention for most interesting table visitor goes to The General of the Wandering Legion, a steampunk comedy video series. Holy brass goggles, Batman.
