If anyone has any ideas for accessories or bead figures let me know. It would help me out greatly. I have few ideas and things I've made like hello kitty, chococat, and pokeball.

Thanks! I just wish I had more time cause I would of had more variety of things to put out. I just didn't have much time to experiment this year. Though I will have lots of items out.

Hey hey~~~ I was wondering if anyone would buy my swag lmao. This would be my first time purchasing an AA at Animazement. This is what I primarily sell:
http://kaitlynclinkscales.deviantart.co ... y/26144840

And here is the rest of my poke-chibi collection:
http://kaitlynclinkscales.deviantart.co ... y/24441725

Most of them would be prints and keychains, and stickers if I can figure out how to make them lmao. What do you guys think?

I have someone sitting on me freaking out over how cute these are, and I must agree with her. If you have a booth, you will definitely have at least two customers, although I'm pretty sure you'll have a lot more. xD

Thanks guys :) They're made out of shrink plastic. Covered in acrylic spray gloss. Trying to upgrade to resin...we'll see if that happens. Prices are usually $6 for one keychain or 2 for $10. Then cell charms vary on size and all...

Gahh! I want them all! Cubone and Cyndaquil ;_; so cute!

And in my experience, pokemon merch sells really well, and these are so adorable so I don't think you'll have any problem with sales :3

This, especially with so many people cosplaying pokemon you'll probably sell loads of them. XD Is there any way we could request certain ones to be made? (I don't mind paying a little bit extra for one if that's what it would take).

You can totally request :) but to have it moved up on the list, you have to pay $2 extra. You might want to make sure I haven't done it though :3

Alright guys last year I had these;
http://o01101011.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d39bwhk
And was wondering what other sort of pokemon would people want? (I need to redo vaporeon >.<)

Also, would there be interest in Llama badges?

Llama...omg XD Cute!

Also, I wanted to update with something of my own.

I made one of these today as a test dummy, but I've got a bunch more set out to make and make look better.

The next ones will be a little bigger and I'll probably be selling them for around $5.. Any takers?

OMG a llama with a lolli! That is TOO cute!

@ Shizuka yay rice ball! Would they have different expressions on them? It would make an adorable set I would definately spend $5 or $8 on them :)

This would be my first AA with AZ and my third AA in my artistic sub-career. I do a lot of work with macrame, resin and gemstones/pearls. So far my previous two cons have been polar opposites in terms of customer type and profit outcome, AWA and Momo both in Georgia.

As such I'm not sure how the current atmosphere is at AZ, as I went two years ago and a great deal change change in two years, I was looking for veteran insight so I can properly provide for the customer base.
Macrame pieces range from $5 http://puerdemon.deviantart.com/art/Pip ... 0063&qo=22 to $25 http://puerdemon.deviantart.com/art/Sin ... 0063&qo=99
I also do a great deal of bracelet weaving with the macrame as well.

A similar range can be found for my resin work http://puerdemon.deviantart.com/art/Cin ... 3&qo=75and http://puerdemon.deviantart.com/gallery ... 4#/d35z2nj Although much of it is steampunk and I am trying to keep with the "japanese" culture theme.

The same for my pearls and gemstones:
http://puerdemon.deviantart.com/gallery ... 7#/d34u5v3 and http://puerdemon.deviantart.com/art/Che ... 063&qo=111


My biggest concern is that I'm wayyyyy off on what the target audience's interests are. Suggestions? Ideas?
Looky What I Found!
All pieces are designed, researched and made by me. The idea is that this is what you say to your friends after you find something completely awesome that I've made and show it to them once you've purchased it ^_^

Hi, I have never sold at an AA before, but I'm hoping to share a table with someone this year at AZ (since I missed registration).
I would be selling 11x17 prints like this (be warned it's shiny): http://xtsuki-chan.deviantart.com/#/d3c8x1a
And keychains with chibi characters like this (I haven't made them into keychains yet): http://xTsuki-chan.deviantart.com/art/A ... -201855043

Can someone give me pricing advice please? Thanks!

Like many others this will be my first year EVER doing an artist alley table after many years of talking about it. My friend and I have put together our stuff to create a little thing we call "Demonik Creations". I make plushies, my wife helps with clay creations and our dear friend crochets. We have built. Site at www.demonikcreations.weebly.com. Please take a look and give us some feedback! We are uber excited about this and can barely stand to wait for AZ!!
