(Sorry for the delay, I planned to complete this article yesterday but I was wayyyy too tired and almost fall asleep on my laptop xD)
It finally happened and I just came back from the second day of the SizeCon 2017 ! Again I’m really tired but I’ll do my best to write this down 🙂
So well I landed in the US on Friday and I managed to reach the hotel 2 hours later (immigration security and everything since I’m not really from there :p). I didn’t even put my bags in my room that I wanted too see the place and well if you remember last year’s feedback it was much more ‘spacious’ 😀
One part of the artist’s alley this year (we had 3 rooms this year)
And some posters that were around on the different walls 🙂
So yeah we started to put all the props in the different rooms and prepare everything around. I met some new people and some others that I already saw last year !
And finally the morning after a good but short night (thanks to the jetlag ! :D) where the convention started ! I finished to setup my stand and all the goodies I’ve brought 🙂 (only half of the pictures because I kept the other part for today :p)
Then I started to walk around, met some people and some artists I didn’t knew before and some other people that I wanted to meet or meet again ! (Anoka, Aborigen, Jitensha, Miss Kaneda, MilkyBody, Praedatorius, Safkteur, Larry, and many more !). Then the many panels and activities started as well, I went to the ‘Dark Side’ panel because it was the most interesting for me and unfortunately I missed the writer’s panel but I was talking with someone and I wouldn’t just go away like this :p . In the activities room I tried the ‘size cards against humanity’ and we had a good laugh there (if I remember some excellent jokes I’ll post them :p), I also tried the other games there even if I already have GunGun Pixies :p
Then when I returned to my booth I had some people to talk with, some of them even knew my works and it was again amazing to meet some fans ^_^. I also saw some people wearing the badges I’ve brought and using the app, it was fun :3
During the afternoon I met some other artists and I got a commission picture from Devria, the result is so cute 😀
And the first day ended with a Champagne toast to celebrate the success of the Con ! Last year we were 125 and this year we were 160 for the 2 days so yeah I’m really glad that we made it again and that even if we had trolls telling that it wouldn’t work well… WE MADE IT !!!!!
After this we spent some time with JDO, Aborigen and Kaneda talking around some pizzas and beers, it was really amazing again because talking with people you only knew on the internet is always exciting. We shared about some of our projects, different other topics and sometimes about random stuff (the Size Dab and the Chocobo ! :D) Still it was really a nice night !!
The second day started and I was a bit tired (jet lag agin :p) but I couldn’t wait for the day to start, I went down a bit early and met Mac from interwebcomics so we could talk a bit before the doors finally opened, I also saw some nice props made for the con 😀 (and I really needed a coffee like this !!)
Before the con, Braxia had the good idea to bring some Overwatch and Pokemon Fusion jokes, it was fun and I could actually play on my 3DS again some Smash Bros (I didn’t forgot my charger this time :p).
Theeeennnn the Vore panel started. I was again one of the panelists among with Jitensha, TinySupeVicky, Larry (Giant Toby), MrIshimaru and Saftkeur. I was a bit shy again… not because talking about this subject bothers me but much more because I’m sometimes not really confident with my english skills but it still went smoothly and in the end the panel was a success ^_^
Since the convention was planned for 2 days and that many people visited our booths, I went on to talk more with much more people and it was fantastic ^_^ Usually it’s a bit hard for me to talk about my works because I’m always ‘not sure’ about my skills but people really wanted to know more and I really appreciated it 😀
another view from my booth ^_^
Later during the day we had a small ‘meeting’ to thanks everyone for the success of this second SizeCon and something really unexpected happened… a wedding proposal during the con ! It was soooo cool and I wish to both of them the best !
And well… even the best things have their end, we cleaned everything and spent some time talking after most of the people leaved but we didn’t really wanted all of this to end… But I’m glad that we had many people hyped for another event to happen and I really hope that there will be more ! 🙂
trap… gift we leaved for the hotel staff that accepted to host the con 🙂
Again this year we had an amazing time and i think everyone had too 🙂 I would again thanks the following :
- Bryan and Jitensha for making this possible from the start ! It was a really big job and you managed to do it twice, really thanks a lot again !!!
- Praedatorius Mah boi !!! It was amazing to finally meet you and it was really fun ^_^
- Saftkeur and MrIshimaru : it was really nice to have some other people from the Portal coming at the con and the panel was great ! 🙂
- Anoka : I reaaaaaally wanted to meet you at the Con and i hope that you also enjoyed those 2 days ! 😉
- Larry : It was really nice to talk with you on many topics ! 🙂
- Mabo : I didn’t expected to meet you in the elevator xD but it was really nice to see you again ! 🙂
- Devria : thanks for making this picture again I love it ! 🙂
- Aborigen, JDO and Miss Kaneda : It was really great to talk and spend some time with you ! I wish we could meet again at another Con ! 😉

Again I’m just amazed by how this event turned out and I REALLY want to support such an event again if there’s a SizeCon 2018 planned :p It also helped me a lot again to accept more this ‘side’ of my lire I prefer sometimes to hide and I’m really happy to have people that listened and shared with me so thanks again from the bottom of my heart !
