Pocky stand

I don't know if alot of people remember or care but last year I went to PMX as the pocky lady wearing the pocky stand! People really seemed to get a big kick out of it last year and had really wanted to do it again, but I'm not sure if its worth the effort.

(here is a photo for refrence http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=318104 )

I had really wanted to make a version that would last more then one con, but I don't have the money. I could do my traditonal one con version, but it still money and work and I'm not sure if people are really that intrested in seeing it again.

If I get enough feedback I'll remake it as a request but if not....I'm not sure.

Should I remake it for PMX?

I thought the Pocky stand was really cute and creative when I saw it last year. And from what I saw, people seemed to be liking it a lot. ^^ I read that you even got the stand signed by a guest of honor! Everyone loves Pocky!

As for remaking it, it really depends on you. If you want to spend the money, you could make it a PMX tradition or something. (Or make it a traveling Pocky stand and go to other cons with it or a similar one.) It could also have been a one time only thing. The possibilities are endless.

yeah well I was thinking of I make it again this year it could be a PMX staple.

and I did get it signed by all the anime and manga guests of honor! it was funny! They were like "why pocky?" "because its really popular here in the states!" "Why?"
^_^ Good times

A PMX-only pocky stand would be neat.

The guests asked why Pocky? Why not pocky? *laughs* That must've been fun.

Now if you only when to Marukai before the con, you could get rich. They were having their 50 cent pocky deal and men's pocky for about $1.19...

well I not going to sell it lol

actually I think if I do it this year I'm going to buy a few boxes of pocky so I really can hand some out for free. But if I run out I won't buy any more but I will take donations to keep it going and I'll do somthing nice for people who donate.

ok I think I am going to make a new stand. I really think I'll have to make a few changes in the design tho. I just remembered that Long beach can be rather windy and a costume made out of styrofoam (especally with a big thin sign across the top) probably isn't the best idea,

We shall see. I've already drafted a few changes for the actually presentation and for what the new stand will say, but not sure how I'm going to make it yet

Let just hope I get it done in time this year!

Still trying out how to make it out of wood so I can actually carry it.

But yes...look for me and the pocky goodness!
