This year I will be attending 2 comic cons and I’m pretty excited about it! The first one will be Salt City Comic Con in Syracuse, NY on July 6th & 7th. The second one will be RocCon in Rochester, NY on September 14th & 15th. Salt City, this will be my 3rd year vending at and it’s always fun, last year was a blast and can’t wait for this year! Plus where they have it, we save up the money and stay right at the hotel, which is a Hilton so we get to feel awesome for a weekend staying at that type of hotel lol.
RocCon is a new one that I will be vending at, 2 years ago they asked me why I didn’t apply to their con and said didn’t have the money, they were okay about it. But this year we got the money and I am able to vend there, I’m excited and can’t wait to see how that adventure will go. With RocCon we don’t have to get a hotel because it’s only 45 mins from our house.
I used to do RetroGameCon however, my first year I did really well, but after that I wasn’t doing so well sales wise. So we came to a conclusion that it isn’t worth the money or time to do it anymore. Maybe later down the road I’ll do it again just for the hell of it, but right now I’m not sure. I do miss doing it but, to me I think they put too much things on day 1 so when day 2 arrives there isn’t as much stuff to do or see.
So, on top of the 2 comic cons, I will be doing about 4 local events, which I am really excited about. The one event is here in town, Christmas in Medina, NY which is an all day event. They have activities all day and then a parade of lights that start around 6pm. I was a vendor last year and it was fun and did really well, even if it did rain lol.
