This is a collaboration between my brother and I. He did the linework and I did the colouring. One Piece has been our most favourite anime of all time. We've been following this anime since the very beginning and we feel very attached to Oda's work. We practically grew up with the Straw Hat crew. It was really fun putting this idea together of all our favourite characters interacting in a convention theme.

HOW TO ORDER CUSTOM SHOES?
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide me the following information:
1) Shoe size
2) Shoe colour
3) Shoe preference
5) Amount of detail
Slightly detailed: 1 side of shoe
Partially detailed: front and 1 side
Fully detailed: All around the shoes + flaps.
WHAT'S THE PROCESS?
- After you send me that email, I'll send you the quote of the job. If you accept, I'll draw a rough sketch for you so that you'll have an idea of what your shoes will look like.
- After everything is decided and confirmed, it'll take about 1 - 4 weeks to paint depending on my workload and the amount of detail going into your piece.
- If you need these shoes for a certain time, then there will be a "rush" charge.
CAN I PROVIDE THE SHOES?
Yes, you can! If you provide me the shoes, I'll just charge for the painting costs.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Ultimately, the price depends on the type, size and cost of the shoes, and the amount of detail there is.
HOW IS THE ARTWORK PROTECTED?
I use acrylic paint, which dries into plastic. Once I finish a piece of work, I spray the shoes with a protective finish. It offers excellent dirt, dust and moisture resistance. Contains UltraVoilet Light filters and Stabilizers providing archival protection reducing light damage. However, just like all shoes, if worn a lot it will eventually wear out so do treat these shoes with love and care!

So I worked really hard to create new pins for the Atomic Lollipop convention the past two weeks. In total I had 104 different kinds to sell! I would like to thank my fiancee James and Mimi for helping me make buttons the night before the con.
Since I'm new to the whole vendor experience, I decided to pay for half a table. Next time, I'm not going to do that. It was pretty tough setting up my stuff with such limited space. Luckily on Friday, the vendor beside me left a little early so I had the opportunity to have a whole table to myself.
By the end of the weekend, I earned my starting costs back and gained a little bit of profit. However, I must admit that I didn't do that well compared to AN which is understandable. Apop is a baby convention compared to AN but, they host better events. So next time, I'll be going to Apop to enjoy it for what it is!
For those who visited my table, thank you for passing by and/or buying my stuff! It's very encouraging and I can't wait to make more for the next con.
