ConnectiCon 2013

Whilst I have a pause in sewing until the weekend, thought I’d take a short detour with today’s post.  A few weekends ago I made my way up to Hartford to attend ConnectiCon.  I am certainly no expert on conventions but this one was not too small and not too big.  Really quite fun.  I am still just blown away by the creativity and energy everyone pours into their coordinates.  As much as I enjoyed the cosplay I admit I was drawn to this one for the swap meet and seeing friends.

Here are some random snaps from the day.  Most of my time was spent in the Lolita 101 Panel, the Lolita Swap Meet, and then time wandering around Artist Alley and the Dealers Room.  Check out my review of Tasty Peach Studios as well – best booth at the Con!
