Toronto Zombie Walk 2014

Dudes! Zombie Walk was awesome this year! Not only did my best bud Tania come for the weekend (for the zombie walk + shopping) but this year it didn't rain! Last year it was very cold, windy and rainy so it wasn't as much fun. This year however, we had the perfect Zombie Walking weather!
Here we are heading out, this is pre-blood.
Here we are with fresh blood. We are ready!
Oh my god. So cute. He had on little bat wings.
This guy looked awesome.
Here is the start of the walk. It got very crowded.
Here we are at the end of the walk. I did take a few pictures during the walk but they didn't turn out so great. Overall the walk was great. It did feel a bit too crowded at some points and then very spaced out at other points. I also felt a bit rushed sometimes, the volunteers kept telling us to fill in the gaps but then the people on the sides that were there to look and take pictures couldn't see everything because of how fast everyone was moving. But... that's just how it goes sometimes. After the walk we were starving and had some street meat (hot dogs) and headed home.

We were there for about 4 hours, I think so it was a long day of walking and standing. I think next year is the Toronto Zombie Walk's 13th year! I can't wait!!

P.S. I'll be posting pictures I found of us taken by other people in the next few days, I've already found so many. So cool! :]

Paintings for sale

Over the weekend I listed my tribal paintings in my shop... finally! I don't know what took me so long, I guess maybe I wasn't ready to part with them. But I think I'm ready now. Whenever I sell a painting it really inspires me to make more.
Anyways here are the paintings that are up for sale. If you've been looking for some one of a kind artwork... help me find these colourful babies new homes so that I have room for newer stuff! :]

The Bazaar of the Bizarre Show: Halloween

I am back from my long weekend. If you didn't already know. This weekend was Thanksgiving weekend for us Canadians. I ended up not visiting my family this time because I had booked to sell at an art show on the Sunday.

When I had paid for the show a few months before I just assumed that it would be happening in the middle of October. Maybe a week or so before Halloween, since it was a Halloween themed show. Nope. I was wrong. (Note to self: Make sure to always triple check what days art shows fall on!) Anyways I had to go, because I had already paid. I've sold at this location earlier this year. You can read about it here. I had a good first time there. Not the best (profit wise) but I had a very positive experience, and why I wanted to come back again.
Here I is, at the start of the show. I thought we were going to be late. The email said that set up was between 9 and 11 (show started at 11am) and if you were late then your table would be taken. We showed up with like, an hour to set up. Which is more time than I need. Worried for nothing!

As you can see at the top right hand side, I displayed a bunch of my new wired headbands. I had a good amount of people checking them out, as well at the bows. And the knitted dish cloths are not mine. Justin's Mom knits a lot and I told her if she left me some I would start bringing them to shows to sell for her.
Cute and friendly cat! He was running the show!
About half an hour after the show had started the... owner of the show? The lady running the show? came by and told me that I could take over the table beside me, since that person had not showed up. It was pretty sweet having two tables for all my stuff. I mainly used it to display more of the dish cloths and scarves by Justin's Mom.

Overall I was a bit disappointed by this show. I did not do well and I was upset that I was spending my Sunday there, bored. I was really excited for it but I think it was a bad move to have it on a long weekend. A long weekend where people generally go visit families and do indoor-togetherness-stuff. But that's just how I feel about it. I'm comparing this show to last year's Decemeber Con, it's pretty close, I don't know which one was worse... maybe the December Con one since I could still see myself attending this Halloween show if it was on any other weekend but Thanksgiving.


P.S. Yes I know this isn't a happy-happy post, but this is for me. For future me, to remember to always check my dates for future shows. Haha.
