Over the weekend I exhibited at Supanova in Sydney! This was my first interstate con on my own, but luckily I made some really great friends that helped this poor lil Lushie find her way around.
My adventure started with a 3-ish hour drive to the airport. At 5:30am. I got a shuttle bus from the parking place to the airport and a lovely gentleman offered me his seat! My flight got in a little early, which was very lucky considering I still hadn't figured out how to get to the convention, which started in an hour and a half. Foolish as it was, I decided to get a taxi, simply because I knew it was the easiest way to get where I needed to go. While it was a lil expensive, the taxi driver actually made a wrong turn and decided not to charge me for the last part of the trip! So many nice people already. And so, I made it to the Showgrounds with a little under an hour to go.
With everything going so well for me, I should have known it would end soon. As I walked up to my table, I noticed something was wrong; there was, in fact, no table. The second con in a row they didnt have a table for me! My friend helped me track down someone to find a table for me, and I managed to set up the wall before they found me one - with 5 minutes to go.
Here's me and my No Table.
The first day was great; my booth neighbours were super nice. They even bought me a slushie, and considering I had completely forgotten about food during my travels, the sugar was much appreciated. They eventually insisted I go to dinner with them, so I went with them and another of their friends to a steakhouse in Olympic Park; right near the convention, and luckily, my hotel.
They invited me out again each night, which was much nicer than eating sad McDonalds alone in my hotel room. On the Saturday we went out to Pepper Lunch before going to see Vivid, which is a lightshow all over Sydney. On the way to Vivid we found a cute lil icecream shop that was selling icecream with fairy floss around it! It looked like it was floating on a cloud. One of my friends got one and I decided to try one with mochi.
We didnt really see much of Vivid, but we made our way up to the Opera House. It was super crowded, but the lightshow was pretty amazing ^^ I wish I got some better photos
On the Sunday, the convention came to an end. We were all feeling the post-con-depression, and decided to go for udon and try this place called ChocPot, which was right next to the icecream place from the night before. It was pretty much chocolate heaven <3
Here are all the things I picked up at the convention! I didnt get to leave my table much being on my own, but I think I did pretty well ^^
Here are prints from my Booth Neighbour Sam and Ry-Spirit
And my BTS loot!! Couple of Jimin Prints and some cute stickers ^^
My friend also got me some presents from overseas! Thank you <3
That's about it for this trip! If you came to see me at Supanova, thank you so much ^^ This con was an amazing experience, and its so wonderful meeting you all
Until next time!
