It's a little late, but here's some Halloween pictures. My husband was hiding in the bushes scaring any trick-or-treaters who walked past. There was also an inflatable Haunted House they could walk through.

Today sucked.

We sold ONE thing, a pair of mini woodburns Brando made and sold for $12 when they where worth at least $20 but he was desperate to make some kind of money.

We had a lot of people liking our stuff and one of the last guys at the booth was awestruck by the woodburns. But no one bought the stuff. So we sat around for 5 hours drawing and trying to get buyers but people just walk past us when we say anything or just compliment us but don't buy.

The folks around us where constantly selling stuff, they where selling mostly trinkets like buttons or plastic bead figures (the flat melted kinda looking stuff) and the people at the booth next to ours commented to one another that they'd already made $100 half way into the evening.

It felt shitty and as we left the parking lot to go home I ended up just breaking down and crying because I felt it was my fault and that my anxiety was getting in the way of me being more friendly and it was my fault we didn't make sales. I didn't even want to go back tomorrow.

I don't know if I should lower my prices or not. People around us charge like..$100 for a single digital print and I am charging $35 for a traditionally colored print or commission. Last year people said my prices where low and I should charge more, so I develop my skills more and get better and charge more but now I am scared that it's too much money. Brando says that people obviously liked my stuff because I was having people coming up and saying they really loved my work, but...but...Y U No Buy.

Downtrodden Emmers is downtrodden.

Fuck u art. Ur not my real dad.

More Halloween pictures!


I threw my outfit together very last minute. I was told I kinda looked like a witch so I found one of the decorations which just happened to be a broom.


Me and Aislynn going trick-or-treating.


Me and Aislynn standing in front of the inflatable Haunted House that later in the night started collapsing in the the middle. Hence the pole holding it up. (I was told it was about 7 years old anyway.)

I hope so.

A lot of people have been concerned that having the artist alley and dealers hall in a different building then the rest of the convention will hurt sales :\ it may have contributed to our crappy sales yesterday. To be honest I didn't see many people buying prints from OTHER vendors either; almost all of the purchases I saw where plush toys or little bobbles.

On a happier note the artist alley is SO MUCH NICER this year. Last year it was just a dim hallway at the hotel where we could hardly move in the little bitty space behind the table. Now it looks like a proper set up in a big ass room with plenty of light and space.

Well, yesterday was fun, but cold. Also, we probably confused or freaked out about a hundred people on the subway while we were doing a photoshoot on one of the platforms (we worked between the trains, but that still meant me standing around in my very eye-catching outfit while waiting. Lucky boyfriend. He just had to take off his Batou eyes and no stares.
