New member!

Let’s give a fantastic welcome to our newest member, Sam! We at the Cats met her at Erie Anime Con & are now going to several new cons (as you may have seen on our updates con page) with her and her super nice friends.

Sam makes incredibly cute original and fan squid plushies, as well as high quality (and quite clever) hand-silk screened t-shirts. I’m absolutely in love with her vynl squid stickers-I’ve got one on my car and my laptop!!

We’re super pleased to have her on board. Check out her work at cyber-scribe-screens.devinatart.com

Many thanks to our friends at Busy Beaver Buttons! Our glow in the dark Pirate vs Ninjas Onigiri Buttons have been such a big hit at cons, that our last few pairs on Etsy are all that are left! We’re re-ordering, so some more will be on the way ASAP. Check out this uber cute article they wrote about the buttons on their blog: link

Erie Anime Experience Wrap Up!

Zap! Pow!
We’re back from a very small, but super friendly and nice anime con- Erie Anime Experience! Mostly Tim (Kings) & I were hangin’ with my awesome friend, Karli in Erie, PA. Her new apt. is awesome- so thanks Karli for letting us crash!!

The con itself was supposed to be about 300ish people large, but I was told attendance was way low for who knows what reasons. Despite that, I have to say the Alley Staff were probably the most amazing, friendly, and caring staff we at Singed Cats have ever encountered. Staff members helped us unload and take our gear up (and out at the end). When we arrived into the tiny alley, there were bags of yummy candy and handmade origami flowers for each artist! And throughout the con staff offered to help watch tables, or run and get water if anyone wanted. They were super peaches! Also, the other artists were fantastic neighbors!! We didn’t have a lot of people come through, but I think us in the EAE Alley really bonded and had a blast. And subsequently, we made a bunch of awesome new friends and we’ll be going to a ton more PA cons as a result. So all in all, it was a success! Thanks to everyone- staff, artists, and the very cool attendees who made EAE so much fun!!

a happy customer!
