*RECAP* Designer-Con 2012: A whole slew of photos and a HUGE thank you!!!

It's already been 5 days since Designer-Con 2012 has wrapped up and boy do I miss it! One of the many things that I do every year is think that I can get away from the booth to take photos and do "regular" con coverage... and seeing as we did giveaways every other hour this year unlike every hour in the past years, I thought I could swing this... I was wrong! I pretty much had very little time to make it around to any booths, and for those of you running booths know what I am talking about... so I have finally come to terms with this and the photos and recap for the convention will just have to suffice. That being said, we were sent photos from both Rich Martin and Lee Joseph to use... and above and below are awesome pictures that capture the vibe of this con! I had a FANTASTIC time, and I would say that all of the artists that were represented at our booth would feel the same way.

The convention was the biggest it has ever been... a constant flow of traffic, and ton of sales... which is a must for our scene to keep moving on, one thing that we had hoped for last year is that in the future for this convention, it moves towards a preview night or into two full days... well, we got our wish and next year, D-Con is 2 days... so start lining up those exclusives!!! Just like the past years, we had giveaways at 10am, 1pm, 4pm, and 6pm and we handed out some AMAZING stuff this year donated by so many awesome companies including Happy Panda Toys • Brutherford Industries • Tenacious Toys • Plaseebo • Mighty Jaxx • Rotofugi • Kuso Vinyl • Kidrobot • Round5 • Clutter • TYO Toys • LIFT • DKE • TRAMPT • La Muerta • Tomenosuke • Blamo • Art Attack Toys • Super7 • Vannen Watches • Dragatomi • Gunnzo •Mintyfresh • 3D Retro • Monster workshop • This Is Vinyl • Urban Rascal • MAQET • Artransmitte Frozen Empire • Time Bandits • DeKorner • Fugitive Toys • ESC Toys • Frombies • Urban Toyfare • TOYKIO • MINDZAI • Freak Store • Sticky Ricks • October Toys • Toy Break • Karmaloop • Blend Buttons • AOI TOYS • Uncle Studios • Ratedrad • TsurtPaisley Fawn and many others... and all the people who stuck around till the end...
