Another weekend, another convention.
This time it was one a lot closer to home. DokiDoki is a bi-annual event in Manchester and is one of my favourites. Its small but very enjoyable and I got to hang out with my arty buddies again :)
Unfortunately I didn't get many photos of cosplayers or pictures this time :(
ended up with a lop side display due to missing connectors on my grids. Still all the posters looked nice and full.
Hoping to have new Madam Butterscotch Prints soon yey!! \o/
The event itself was in a large sports hall at Manchester University.
There were tonnes of cool stalls, mostly catering to Anime/Japanese merchandise and artwork.
I ended up buying some swag at the end haha!
I got these adorable narwhal and squid bracelets from a store and for the life of me I can't remember her name. If I manage to find her shop I'll be sure to link it :3
I did manage to get to The Naked Lace Company, who I've met at previous DokiDoki events. They specialise in Sailor Fukus and Sailor Moon gear, so I couldn't resist in helping myself to a Sailor Saturn kit. Got Front and Long Back Bows plus a Collar, all made and ready to use. Means I can finally work on that Sailor Saturn cosplay hahaa!
In the end the event was quiet but very much enjoyable. It was great to hang out with my gals again and met tonnes of new people. Lots of people walked away with more Madam Butterscotch books so it was a great day.
At the very end this awesome band came on started playing songs from Animes. They were really good!
Next event in less than a week!! will be Thought Bubble Festival in Leeds!
This is a big event for me.
Lots of indie comic creators, big comic guests and lots and lots a new comics available over the weekend. Its one of my all time favourite events to attend and no doubt will be a busy weekend for everyone attending.
I'm even more excited as I'll have brand new Madam Butterscotch work to show off so I'm super excited!!! AWW YISS!!
see you soon guys!!!
