You guys, August is going to be absolutely insane! We have not one, not two, but THREE conventions in a row coming up, and we’re working almost non-stop in the studio to try to build enough stock to carry us through them. I’m pretty sure the only days we have off this month are to help a friend move, and to go to the Worcester Art Museum with my mother-in-law for the Meow Exhibit.
So, without further ado, here are the details on all three!
Last year’s BCC selfie, before it became so unbearably hot that I had to lose the cosplay.
What: Boston Comic Con
When: August 12 – 14
Where: Seaport World Trade Center, Boston, MA
This will be our third year vending at Boston Comic Con, and has historically been our largest and busiest show of the year, so we’re very excited to be kicking off our August madness back at the Seaport World Trade Center!
I may or may not cosplay there this year – large shows often make me want to dress up and join in the fun. But at the same time they’re so crazy busy that taking the time to get all costumed up can feel like an extra burden. And last year it was so hot in the room that I was only able to stand being Loki for half the day, before I was madly pulling the wig off and stripping layers to finish the show in leggings and a t-shirt!
When: August 19 – 21
Where: Mohegan Sun, Uncasville, CT
This will be TerrifiCon’s second year at Mohegan Sun, and it will be our second year vending the event. Last year was incredibly well attended, with dealer’s room aisles that were packed with attendees in fabulous cosplays, and a second floor full of panels and entertainment. Plus the casino setting means that there are tons of food options availble for attendees without ever having to leave the venue!
What: Vermont Comic Con
When: August 27 – 28
Where: Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center, Burlington, VT
Although this is the third year for this convention, it’s the first year Storied Threads will be there. We’ve heard nothing but good reports on the event from attendees and other vendors, and we’re looking forward to heading up to Burlington for the weekend. It’s a great city with a lot of personality, and I’m excited to be bringing Storied Threads to a new audience.
On August 29, I plan to collapse from exhaustion. But I’ll be back up again the next day, getting ready for our autumn shows!
