As you might have heard, Designer Con is going BIG this year. For 2013, DCon will expand to a larger, 2-day show (11.9 – 11.0) at the Pasadena Convention Center. Thanks to the hard work of Ayleen Gaspar and Ben Goretsky, the show gets better each year. This year’s vendors include Bad Juju, BAIT, Kidrobot, Circus Posterus, DKE Toys, Skullastic, Spankystokes, 3DRetro, October Toys, STUDS, Munky King, Toy Art Gallery, The Loyal Subjects, Gunnzo, Dragatomi, Trampt, Color Ink Book, Giant Robot, Blamo Toys, Mr. Toast, Paul Kaiju and more. And… be sure to check out the bridge (partial) of the Enterprise-D courtesy of newstarship.com which is working on a full restoration of the Next Generation bridge.
If you’re looking for all your favorite art toy companies and artists in one comprehensive show without the craziness of SDCC or NYCC, D-Con can’t be beat. See ya there in November. Expect plenty of updates as we get closer to the date.
