Now before I start this I want to point out that in the hustle and bustle of everything we lost a couple of business cards. I’d like to show off who made each item that we purchased, but with the loss of the cards I can’t do that for every item. If you believe you made an item that I haven’t attributed a creator/seller to, then send me a line using the form on the right side and give me a link to your site or your etsy page or whatever. We also don’t remember the prices we paid for anything, so…uhh…yeah, sorry on that; next year I’ll take better records on this stuff. Also, each picture (that we remember the makers to) link to their website if available. So if you like what we got, and want one of your own, click the pic to get a lookie-loo at their other stuff for sale.
With that out of way, let’s get to the fun stuff! First off we have this cute little, figuratively speaking because it’s huge, bunny pillow!
And yes, that’s one of the ones we lost the card to. The other one is this nifty cloth bookmark.
We got this nifty faux-flower headband from the folks at Domenica’s Fine Fashions. The picture doesn’t do it justice, it’s a really nifty looking blue fabric flower. They also make medieval outfits, costumes, and all kinds of custom-made outfits. We also bought a lot of stuff from them, we definitely could have blown our entire convention budget on their stall, alone.
On the right hand side of this next one is a star-shaped jar pendant filled with glow-in-the-dark rocks. On the left hand side is a really awesome idea: A circlet made with wig clips so that you can just put them in barrettes (or such I’m no hairdresser and really have no idea what I’m talking about) and not have to mess up your hair, but still keep the circlet in perfect place. It has a turquoise-colored gem in the middle, which looks cool.
Every year it seems like we absolutely have to buy something from the A Case of Random stall. We’ve bought barrettes, ankle jinglies, wrist jinglies, chopsticks, all manner of things from her before. Always happy with our purchases, the wife wanted another rainbow item (you can never have too many rainbow shinies, she claims) so we picked up some more ankle jinglies. I can’t not suggest this fine lass for all your chainmail accessory needs. Did I mention shiny jinglies?
I mentioned buying a sticker of a cop named Dick from the Phoenix Wright series; he’s the dude in the middle, Dick Gumshoe (Itonokogiri Keisuke). On the left we have Loki from the Thor and Avengers movies (and the comics before that) and on the right we have Sailor Jupiter (Lita/Makoto). They are all stickers made by one Lacey Shreffler.
And the last thing we bought is another case of ‘lost card syndrome’, which is a shame because the last time we were at Tekko we bought a bunch of Chinese wall scrolls from them which currently adorn my home office. Anyway, this cute little kitty clutch was perfect since the other day when we went to the theater to see Wicked (which was fantastic, BTW) my wife had trouble carrying her ID and all that fun stuff. You see, my wife’s not a big purse kind of woman, and ladies pants (and dresses, of course) don’t have very deep pockets, if they have pockets at all. So a clutch that she can hang from her wrist is great. This little number was only a few bucks and it has a cute kitty on it. You can’t really go wrong with a cute kitty, right?
And that was everything non food-related that we spent money on this year. All this talking about Tekko has me wanting to go back, already. Hope to see you folks next year!
