Dayton Airport Expo Center
This was a first-year convention, so naturally, turnout was fairly low. This happens with ALL conventions in their first year. However, everyone who was there had a great time. I met a lot of interesting people, had a lot of fun, and made a profit. Not a bad way to spend a weekend. :) Some of the activities included an AutoCross and Drifting outside, Cosplay, a car show, an entire room devoted to video gaming and more. Truth be told, this show was more organized than some established conventions I've been to in the past . . . and, there was a lot more to do! Yeah, I want to thank the organizers for putting together a great show!
|The convention was about ready to start, and I was all ready to make some sales! Actually, I cheated . . . I set up my table the day before the convention started! lol|
|Tiana, my top promo
model, decided to sell baked goods at the convention. Over the
weekend, she made almost as much as I did when I was selling COOL
These two ladies are members of the D-20 Promo team. They were selling Tiana's baked goods for her and did a great job! Uh, I think I was their best customer! Hey! It wasn't my fault! Tiana makes great cookies! lol
|This is one of the vendors!|
|This is William
Adams. His wife, Barbara, is the lady portraying the Wife of
Frankenstein. William portrays characters for parties, grand
openings, special events and so on.
Need to hire him for an event? It's easy, and his prices are very reasonable!

Yeah, yeah, I know . . . this is the first time I'm running an ad on any of my event pages. All I can say is, William deserves it - he impressed me that much!

|One of the D-20 promo models - I should have, but I never asked her for her name... (Sigh)|
|One of the D-20 promo models - again . . . I never asked for a name.|
|One of the D-20 promo
models, Gigi. This girl is almost as sweet as those chocolate
brownies she was selling for Tiana!
MAN! Those brownies were good! I swear, they had to be richer than Bill Gates! lol
|This is William Adams again. I'll say
this much . . . his costumes are incredibly authentic!
Nadia, one of my favorite models, has always been a big Batman fan. It didn't take much to convince her to have her picture taken with her favorite super hero!
|The convention's over
and the other vendors were clearing out, so it was time to pack up . . .
and go outside to watch the drifting.
It was incredible!
I should have taken some pictures of the drifting going on outside. (I know, I'm scum... )
