Hey, I was the Link with the Bombs and Bottle Fairy, and was wondering something.

Maybe I should make a couple of those Bombs and Bottled Fairies for next year and try to sell some, since they received a good lot of comments. Would I have to reserve a table to actually sell ANYTHING even if I would just have 1 thing to sell (like one type of thing, let's say I just get to do the bombs?)

I think I would, but I just wanna know if I have to. Also, would anyone here be interested in buying either? I just ask that as a referrence to see if it would be worth it to actually "mass produce" them for next year. lol.

Also, bomb bags or no? as in, do you think I should make bomb bags and try selling them as well?


Finally, if I do make them in advance and don't end up with a table to sell them, is there a possibility to share a table with someone else? or would I be allowed to sell my goods outside of the dealer's room? (outside of otakuthon "grounds" if needs be)

I doubt you'd be able to sell out side of the dealer's alley but you could always pre-sell them on the net and meet your buyers at otakuthon to give them their stuff? You can always share a table with someone, but for 18$ why not buy yourself half a table? They're pretty small, it'd be enough for a couple of items, but I doubt it'd be enough space to share between two artists.

I haven't seen you at the con, so I don't know what your items look like, you should post 'em on the forums :)

actually, I wasn't at the dealer's room at all, hence the questions I asked. but I can take a picture of the items I got with me.


They're actually the models I'll base myself on, and were the ones I had at the con:

Bottled Fairy: http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm20/AMOE1st/BottleFairy.jpg

Bomb: http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm20/AMOE1st/Bomb.jpg

Bomb Bag: http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm20/AMOE1st/BombBag.jpg


Note that the red cup thingy isn't part of the bomb, it was only to hold the bomb steady, since it's round.
Also, the bomb bag in that picture actually contains 3 of the same bomb from the picture provided.

If you plan on getting an Artist Table, I would suggest having a couple other product more to offer if possible...

By the way, very cool!! 8)

I don't really have more stuff to sell. I know the idea would be to diversify stuff so that I can get more revenue from different people but, yea, I don't have anything else (at least for now) XD
