Whew, what an awesome time at EQLA! Of course I missed out on a lot of the awesome panels during the daytime, but it was still great heading down and seeing y'all Calibronies.
I did an art trade with
and got a couple of his awesome prints, and got some swag from
as well. I was also vending neighbors with
and met up with Bronycon buddy
, and we managed to sneak in a few good chats during the vending madness.
One thing I really regret was not getting a vending buddy to be a stand-in so I could visit some of the panels and autograph sessions I was hoping to get into...being anchored down to a table can be rough sometimes when you're the only person behind the counter D:
But by far the biggest thing I regret...driving 8 friggin' hours down to LA. I figured I could easily save around 100 or so bucks by four-wheeling it down there instead of flying on standby as usual. In retrospect I'm really not sure the constant boredom and wear-and-tear on my car was worth it. And don't even get me started on LA traffic...man, it's survival of the fittest/angriest on the streets over there. Definitely flying standby next time...looking back, I have no idea what I was thinking XD
I'm really glad to have been able to make this con, earn a few bucks, and catch up with some Equestrian buddies. Next stops are Nightmare Nights in Dallas and Ciderfest in Milwaukee...then taking a massive break from the con scene until BABScon (hoping to get in if I cross my fingers hard enough). Hope those of you who made this one had a great time, and hope to see you at many more
