Last Saturday I attended Mancstercon, a small event held at Media City Uk in Salford.
It was a kind of last minute decision for me to attend, but with it being so local I couldn't really say no,
I got dressed up and headed over to the event.
Thanks to trams being their usual reliable selves (not really) I arrived with time to set up.
There were no table plans and it was a bit of a free for all - which left a few artists disgruntled. However I was able to pitch my table next to Sophira-Lou
It was a very Quiet event...
I knew the event was going to be small but dead?! was not what I was expecting.
Very few attendees actually came down the dealers area; we ended up christening the event #tradercon because there were more traders than attendees!
However, this could be down to many things.
Manchester Pride and Man City Football game was on the same day. This being paired with Media City being very out of the way for most attendees, the event did suffer.
The staff though were very friendly and apologetic.
And to be fair it was a great day out. I had a awesome time catching up with friends and actually working on new projects.
I decided to pack up early and head off with Rob for some eats.
We went to the Chiquitos at Salford Quays and it was really nice! Food was great and the atmosphere was brilliant,
In the end it was a great day. Had fab bantz with friends and had great food :D
Next Convention will be MCM Scotland Comic Con 26th-27th of September!
Bye for now
