7:30am and waiting for RetroGameCon to start!

This past Saturday (November 14, 2015) I had the pleasure of being a vendor at RetroGameCon. I was contacted beginning of June 2105 by the assistant director, and asked if I was interested in being a vendor for their convention. Well after a few months I decided to sign up. It took not even a week and my application was approved and then my fun began! I had so much to get done, and yet I still felt like I didn’t have enough items for the convention, I sold pillows, coasters, lanyards, dice bags & magnets.

I worked on stuff all the way up until Friday morning, Friday afternoon we were leaving for Syracuse (where the event was). I decided to get a hotel for the whole weekend this way I was already in the area since I had to be there so early in the morning on Saturday. We got to the hotel around 4ish, unpacked and relaxed for about 30 mins then I was able to head over to the building where the convention was being held to set up a day early. T thought it was awesome he got to go help mommy and daddy set up their table. Friday night, I didn’t get much sleep because I was so anxious and nervous. We got up at about 5:30 am and got ready to head over to the convention. We got there at like 7am and there wasn’t much people there yet setting up, and VIP was expected at 9am.

During the convention I seen so many different cosplay people and some of them were awesome and of course there were a few that made you think, wtf? lol. We had set up a TV and played classic Super Mario Bros. cartoon and it was awesome seeing kids get into watching it and hearing adults walk by saying they remember the show. I think I sold about half of everything I had brought with me. I wasn’t too worried about selling a lot, to me it was all about experience. The people there were so nice and awesome, I kept getting told by several people they loved my stuff.

Needless to say, I am definitely going to vendor next year for RetroGameCon, I learned that I need to definitely give myself more time to get stuff done, instead of waiting til the last minute to finish stuff lol. Some people gave suggestions to what to add next year, I’m looking into getting a banner for the shop. Also learned to bring something with me to work on, cause being there for 12 hours does take a tole on you when you have nothing to do lol. It was such an amazing time, I may have not gotten to walk around checking out other vendors, but I still had fun, it’s something I will never forget and hope to soon do this once again.

Happy Halloween!!


Hope you all had a fun/safe Halloween this year! We are all done trick-or-treating and T is in bed just about passed out. He had a great time this year, he even took his favorite bear named Blu with him. Blu had a bag of his own and some people actually gave him candy, I thought it was really nice they did that :-) It really made T’s night when Blu was getting candy as well. 


T & Blu’s matching bags, may look small but they both hold a lot of candy lol

T went as a race car driver this year, after looking at several costumes it’s the one he picked out and was happy with. I then made him a new candy bag, and he asked if I could make one for Blu as well, so he picked out the fabric and I made them matching bags. He freaked out when he seen the bags finished lol.

How was your Halloween this year, did you pass out candy or take children out?

Trying to get ready for RetroGameCon!

giphy (1)

I’ve been trying to get stuff made and ready for RetroGameCon and I still don’t think I’ll be ready in time. I have so much more stuff to get made and life I swear just keeps getting in the way. I’ve been sick, T was sick for a while so that put me out of commission for almost a week. I keep questioning myself, “should I be doing this convention?” Of course D keeps telling me I’ll be fine and I’ll get everything done in time. I just gotta stop procrastinating and get back to work, between me and T being sick I’ve just lost all my sewing mojo :-( I have less than 3 weeks to get everything finished. On November 13, 2015 we head to Syracuse for the convention so I’m already in town for the 14th for convention. So let’s hope fingers crossed I can get everything done in time!

Super excited!!!


So a few months ago I had posted about wanting to be a vendor at a place called RetroGameCon, well guess what….I’m actually going to be a vendor for it this year!

I am beyond excited about being able to be a part of the event. I already put in my application, submitted photos of my work, and got approved. Then I went and paid my vendor fee, so now I am all set on that part. I squealed like a school girl when I got the email that my application was accepted.

The event is being held on November 14, 2015 in Syracuse @ one of the buildings that is located on the NYS fairgrounds property. The place is about 2.5 hours away from me, so I am hoping to get money aside to get a hotel for the weekend, cause I have to be there at like 8am to set up and be ready by 9am for the VIP to have early access.

I have so much stuff to make and get ready and have less that 2 months to complete. I know I can get it done, but I just keep trying to put myself down, why? I don’t know I guess it’s just me. I’m planning on making some pillows, dice bags, magnets and some other stuff. I don’t want to have too much but at the same time have too little. I am nervous and excited about the event coming up. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do and finally get to!

If you’re curious about RetroGameCon click HERE and head over to their site and check it out. It looks like it’s going to be a great time, and so far it looks like I’m going to be a unique vendor. If you do go, come find “KreativeMumma” and check out the geeky inspired items :-)
