Hey again! Woo, has it been hectic or what? I swear, the holidays will never start for some people – all the better for you guys! But, what harm to keep you civilised beings waiting? Where’s the furore? The demands to know what my surprise was that I promised so long ago?! Shame on you all! Shaaaaame! Okay, so, crazy here has watched too much Charlie the Unicorn/ Charlie teh Unicron, whichever rocks your boat!
Well, because you are all so patient, I’m going to make you wait a little longer. This post is, in particular, addressing all artists out there. Guys, we are still accepting applicants to the Artist’s Alley for BroCon 2013. We already have quite a selection but if you feel that you have something that you feel would be good for the convention, please contact me, Pauline please find my contact info at the sign off. Yeah, yeah, it comes with the territory.
As for all of our attendees, wow do we have something spectacular for you guys this year – seriously, stop thinking that I’m going to be getting to the surprise so fast! At this year’s Artist’s Alley we have a big line up for you, artists, comics, figurines, weapons, armour, jewellery, crafts… there are just so many and how light my purse is going to feel at the end of it all, not sure about the rest of you!
Okay. So that’s it this time from me, I’ll talk to yo- WHO THREW THAT?!!! Fine, fine… no need to get so violent… Jeesh…
Without further adieu, I would like to proudly announce that this year, Brocon has a new sponsor – Gaia Online. Gaia Online, for those of you who don’t know what it is, is an online anime website where you can create your own avatar, play games, interact with other people, roleplay in different forums, etc. Gaia have graciously given us a few goodies for everybody in the audience and have also given us a few exclusive items which we will be auctioning off in our charity auction.
We are very happy to welcome Gaia to our growing list of Con sponsors and we hope that our relationship will strengthen in the coming years. We would also really love if you would visit their website. Check it out, join in the fun and, if you’re stuck for a friend, then check me out. I’m a long standing member of Gaia and I’d be more than happy to help you out – Sadhbh 0210 .
So that’s the news for now, if you have any questions or queries on Artist Alley or the anime side of the Con, please, never hesitate to send me an e-mail!
Pauline Kenneally over and out.
