WoWL! So Kevin was recently promoting the Westies of West London at the London Super Comic Con. This event was held at the ExCel London, United Kingdom over the weekend from 20-21 February 2016. This is the second time we have exhibited at this particular event, which is becoming increasingly popular.
Exhibitors, visitors and cosplay
There were so many amazing exhibitors to view; from small independent artists, comic artists, special guests and lots of merchandise and much more. Visitors of all ages attended this super event and it was fantastic to see many of them getting into the spirit of comic (or film) characters by dressing up for the event or to take part in the Cosplay. Take a look out Comic Con video below.
Customes, characters and two chickens?
Some of our favourite characters included two… er… excited fans who dressed as Joy and Sadness from the Disney/Pixar film Inside Out. They really looked the part in their outfits and their glowing memory balls were just the perfect accessories.
Another fan dressed himself as Batman but made entirely of black, yellow, white and grey balloons used for making balloon animals. What was even more impressive was that he managed to walk around without making any of them pop!
Kevin managed to get nab a quick photo with his squeaky chicken-shaped chew toy and a Harley Quninn fan with her autographed chicken-shaped chew toy (which apparently has travelled around the world to many a comic con and explains why it has lost it’s squeak!).
The WoWL exhibition table
We also were able to display and sell our Westies dogtective book The Captivating Case of the Chicken-shaped Chew Toy at the event, which explains why Kevin had the squeaky chicken chew toy. Yes, it works really well to attract attention!
Plus we also introduced a new A4 size colouring book with illustrations taken from the Captivating Case book. It is 10 pages and features all the different characters including our favourite dogtectives Casper, Basil, Billy and Lucky, plus scenes from the main story book. The colouring book is currently not being sold online but we plan to do so soon.
Overall, it was a super weekend and great fun to take part in this event, with new friends being made (have a look at some fantastic art from Emily Hare) and comics being promoted.
