Interests
This year has been quite the Journey!I started my Professional Face Painting business and January and I have learned a lot on the way.The biggest things have been where to be a vendor and where not to be one.This year I have been to,or will be going to or participated at Amazing Arizona Comic con...I booth sat,Taiyou-con I vended with a club that I am apart of,Phoenix Comic con....unfortunately the table share did not happen but I ended doing my first body paint and a retro arcade themed dance,Saboten!This brings me to today's fun story..not really.I agreed with another person to pay a certain amount booth sit the booth on Friday and vend the rest of the days.Well that person was not clear to the other person who was really the owner of the booth.They didn't want a face painter and they freaked out and stressed at every little thing.This is the type of thing that I would like to avoid doing booths!I want to have a clear understandings with people who I deal with.Communication is key and it wasn't here in this situation because I wasn't given contact information so for the person saying that don't do kind things for others when they do unkindness for you...well it is kinda your fault.You gave me little to no information and you didn't tell the main person that face painting was a yes.They were afraid of their display being knocked over with up to 3 feet of space between them...freaking about me having a line..but oh I have to bring a big table for the other person to vend with me because that is my problem right to know all this stuff 2 days before a 4 day convention.What people do not know is that I live off of my business .....my husband doesn't have a job I am the breadwinner and I go to huge lengths to pay our bills.I take jobs that few do in some cases to meet ends.People who stress and stress to someone but  they want to vend with please stop!It's 2 days before a con what have you been doing hiding under a rock?!
      It is not professional to do this ...dumping all your trashes and toxins into someone a couple of days before a con.Oh but guess what, I will still be there because I have a club that is willing to work with me again.Being an Artist Alley vendor seems a little different each year from just my experience going to cons.They use to be laid back and more personable but now it seems to be business,business...oh and business.Yeah I would like to make my table fee back but at the same time I do conventions out of love.For the most part I make more money doing parties but conventions are fun!you have fun conversations,cosplay....and doodle..paint things that you wouldn't usually do!

      Back to that list!I will be doing Fear Con as a vendor and so far that is my convention schedule for the rest of this year.

Points

1.communication.....and communication..that means having contacts,dates,times,all information as early as possible
2.Sharing tables: This is a tricky one....Have a back up plan if your table sharing mate backs out or even a written contract..may'be a contract sounds horrible.I hate to say it but you can't count on anyone's word...I did and I have gotten burned twice this year because of being too trusting.
3.Consider getting your own table to do it your way:Yes getting a table all by your lonesome can be expensive but look at all the pros!You can spread out all your merchandise,you have space!You don't have to worry about anyone else and more attention could be focused on what you are doing.
4.Follow professionalism:Wearing a crazy costume?Great!Just make sure it's clean and you have taken a shower in the last day or so.Treat every person kindly.Get to know your table neighbors before the start of the con.That way you can tell them what you are doing and learn more about them!Concerns of neighbors out of the way.Always use please,thank you and hello!Eye contact is good contact.Do not ignore people unless they are being rude and if that is the case find security.
5.Remember hydration and sleep:Remember that you should  drink water and get some shut eye each night to work hard the next day.
6.When handling money count back change!This is huge,it shows that you care and less mistakes are made.
7.make a checklist!I do this for all events and it works...it saves time it really does!
8.For the love of a Sandwich HAVE FUN

...........go ahead hate this it's okay!
  • Mood: Frustrated
  • Listening to: nothing for now
  • Reading: ummm nothing
  • Watching: The haunting hour
  • Playing: nothing
  • Eating: chicken..cluck cluck...EEEK
  • Drinking: water
