So on Sunday of Youmacon, about half way into the day, a middle-aged man with a rather miffed looking wife came to our table and was really excited about our art and prices. He wanted us to draw Starfire and Raven from the Teen Titans animu in a fighty energetic pose. We said we could, but there was no way to finish it before the convention ended and we could ship it out.

The three of us discussed it for a while before he turned to his wife and said he needed the money from her. The woman then proceeded to talk to him like a 12 year old child asking him questions like "Are you SURE this is how you want to spend the money? Is this ALL your going to ask for for the rest of the day?" and looking around at our table and us like we where unworthy...

This went on for about 10-15 minutes of her going back and forth with him, he wanted the commission from us badly and was clearly engaged with Brandon and I and really interested in buying from us. The wife was just looking bored and surly the entire time and was making comments like "ARE YOU SURREEEE" and just looked so pissed at us as if Brando and I had done something personally to wrong her.

When she seemed finally ready to give her husband money for the commission she said to us that the defining thing on buying from us was if we could take credit cards and we don't have the machine to do so. So the guy had to take our business cards and left looking disappointed but assuring us he'd get in contact with us.

We haven't heard from him since.

I really wish people like that would understand just how badly they affect our business and can completely destroy us. After the completely awful bank-breaking weekend we had a big commission like that would have been a HUGE help.

Yes. That's a catagory
Personally, I would go with Gothic.

Luna- You know my vote, and I go for classic only because I think it's best to not distract TOO much from the presentation (as sweet and goth might) and give them a view of what a typical just "plain" lolita style would be

Emmers- That woman deserves a box shot...

And another person who bit a horse.

We know some strange people.

But truthfully I don't think I can ride horses again because I am the least assertive person ever, and horses know-- they just KNOW-- as soon as I get near them that they can do whatever the hell they please with me and I'll just be like "okay, nice horse, please try not to kill me but if you do I guess that's okay, oh, all right, we're going over here now, ah I see you've chosen to leave the paddock entirely, how delightful, I have never ridden a horse across a highway before."

Horses are all insane and mostly assholes.

Horses aren't all insane assholes, that's ponies xD Trust me for every naughty horse we have, we have two saints. I could gush forever about forty love but that's another tale.

And horses do try to get away with proverbial murder, they're smart, they know if you're unsure or hesitant with them and they know it means they can be lazy if they're a horse prone to ignoring commands and not a schoolmaster or old horse. That's basically what Jimmy does, he slows down and breaks trot a lot so I have to smack him with the crop more often than I'd like but he's gotten lazy so he needs to be schooled out of vacation mind set.

And as a CHRISTMAS ELF, of all things? Geez. I'd bet that guy has midget porno or something at home if he has THAT kind of a mindset. Ugh.
