Updated 2014 Con List
(x) *January 3-5 – Anime-ZAP, Embassy Suites, East Peoria, IL - small, but I might go back because I love the people who run the con ;3
(x) *March 22 – Animarathon, Bowling Green State Uniersity, Bowling Green, OH - Same as last year - I’d buy my table for next year now if I could!
(x) April 4-6 – Shutocon, Lansing Center & Radisson, Lansing, MI - Was GREAT! Can’t wait for next year!
(x) April 10-13 – Shinbokucon, Sawmill Creek Resort of Huron, Ohio – Not too shabby, though I think buying a vendor table was a bit premature. Next year I’ll try for an artist booth instead. Met some great people though!
(x) April 25-27 – Midwest Media Expo, Detroit Renaissance Center, Detroit, Michigan – Fabulous! Can’t wait for next year!
(x) May 10 – Anime Park, Canton High School, Canton, Mi – Wonderful, as always! I love small, close cons!
(x) May 17 – Electronica Expo, Wayne County Fairgrounds, Belleville, Michigan – VERY small. Not sure I’ll go back next year.
(x) May 23-25 – Animinneapolis, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, Minneapolis, MN – Another wonderful con from the makers of Anime Midwest! Can’t wait for next year!
(x) May 30-June 01 - Indy Pop Con, Hyatt Regency Indianapolis, Indianapolis, IN - A great little first year comic con. They didn’t have as many people as we expected, but we still did well enough to buy our table for next year on the spot :3
(x) July 4-6 – Anime Midwest, Hyatt Regency O’Hare, Chicago, IL – Just as fabulous as last year!
(Big Grin) Might need a dealer space for all the new products I intend to have for next year ;3
(x) July 11-13 - Atomic Lollipop, Toronto Science Center, Toronto, Canada - The convention itself was ok, and seeing Canada was cool, but I didn’t like the way that NOTHING was regulated. I think I won’t be returning because of that fact.
(x) July 26-28 – Glass City Comic Con, Seagate Convention Centre, Toledo, OH – Was fun! Will be returning if possible :3
(x) August 1-3 – Go!Daikocon, Auburn Hills Marriott Pontiac at Centerpoint, Pontiac, MI – Even more fun than last year with all the panels I ran this year!

(x) August 22-24 - Matsuricon, Hyatt Regency Columbus – Columbus, OH - Made money, but the experience was not great :/
(x) September 05-07 - Midoricon, Maumee Bay Conference Center, Maumee, OH - Terribly run con. VERY few attendees. Will NOT be returning unless I get a dealer space and send someone with some of my wares.
(x) September 19-21 - Ramencon, Raddison Holiday Star Plaza, Merriville, IN - Was super fun and pretty profitable! Would definitely go back!
