Convention Report: Mid-Ohio 2012

Written on Fri, Oct 5, 2012 by Kyle posted by kyle

This past weekend we at Unshaven Comics returned to Mid-Ohio Con for another year that was far beyond what we could have hopped for. We were able to meet old friends, make some new ones, eat some great German food (thank you Schmidt’s) and we sold books. Did we ever sell books.

Despite the 6 hour drive Friday night we were all in high spirits for the show Saturday morning. As a lucky break it looks like the table behind us decided never to show up which gave us an extra chair and plenty of room to spread out. With this convention we decided to change up the formation with Kyle (that’s me)  on the left and Marc on the right instead of the center. This gave use the chance to increase or selling as I pitched to the left and Marc to the right. You can’t imaging what kind of sales aura our table had with two sales people going at once. It was a sight to behold.

When we weren’t selling our books we were catching up with some good friends of ours. The folks from Malemy Studios had a table again. For those who don’t know Jeremy and Mallie Adams are the incredible costume making duo who made the Blue Samurnaut armor worn by our very own Erik ‘Blue Samurnaut’ Anderson. We all met at the convention last year where they displayed several of their custom suits and costumes. we knew immediately they’d be perfect for crafting our suit. In fact go look at their website at http://malmey-studios.com/ when you finish this article. After Saturday we all headed out for a nice dinner together to catch up and talk about possible future plans.

By the end of the show on Sunday we had sold 152 books (compared to the 105 last year) and were ready to head home. We were tired but triumphant knowing that we’d gone that every bit higher above our companies goal. With only two conventions left for this year the excitement before, during and after a convention continues to go strong. May it never change.
