I did this show largely because I wanted to do a show in Wisconsin in 2018. They had steady traffic flow throughout the entire event; which was a pleasant surprise for a smaller scale show. However, I think a lot of the people were just making multiple rounds going through the toy and collector vendors. No costumes or cosplay, but people still brought a lot of kids who didn't have much to do. If I was a toy vendor, I'd have been nervous, but selling comics, it wasn't too much of a problem. I got some sticky candy fingers on one of my display books, but I can live with that.
Even though the event wasn't really geared towards artists, I felt like that might have worked for the few of us who were there this time.
