As the winter approaches, the end of another SoWA season is fast upon us. Though this was in fact the last outdoor event of the year, it sure went out with a bang.
Here’s the recap:
Titled “The Marketing of The Living Dead”, we made sure to add a little bit of Halloween spirit to our booth this weekend.
Our costumes as Zombie BP Oil Cleanup Crew guys were also a huge hit. We had a great time tearing it up in the vendor costume contest, though I do feel we were robbed a bit. Maybe the judges were working for BP or worse thought we were supporting them. Lets be honest, is there anything more evil than a zombie version of a oil company employee? Nope, didn’t think so.
When I saw Joan Harris doing her thing, I knew it was only a matter of time before Nick, a Mad Men fanatic, made his way over to see what was good. In my opinion this fine young lady looks like Amy Adams dressed up as Joan Harris, which is definitely a big win.
The guys of Fuzzy-Ink are on top of their game non-stop; working multiple events every weekend(seriously who else does that?). Up until the last two weeks though I’ve only had the pleasure of meeting John and Alvaro. This western omelette named Mike is a real solid dude and it has been fun getting to know him. He was also unfortunately robbed of a top spot in the vendor costume contest. Guilt by association perhaps? Very likely.
Diane of Cutesy But Not Cutesy has been secretly following me around all summer at both Renegade and SoWA events. Though she refused to cheer me on at the vendor costume contest, I still offered to include her in the recap. BTW, while I was creeping on her etsy shop, I noticed she gives human names to all of her handmade plush toys. How adorable is this girl?
Despite our shocking defeat in the vendor costume contest(IMMA LET YOU FINISH BUT..), the Market of The Living Dead was an overwhelming success. For those vendors who were fortunate enough to beat us, be ready to bring it next year because we’ll be next leveling it all over again. See you guys at the SoWA Holiday Show this December next month.
PS What happened to that boy???
