At this stage in my toylife and real-life, my one destination aim, would be Taipei Toy Festival 2015. Close second; "Toy Soul" in Hong Kong, and possibly "Art Toy Culture" in Korea.
It is plain simple "economics". I am more likely to be able to afford going to, and staying in Taiwan, anywhere in Asia, in fact, than I would be able to survive in the United States. Nearly a decade of longing for SDCC, and subsequently NYCC, has become a simple pipe dream faded with time. DesignerCon remains an "dream-desti" still, but I know I am choosing to be naive at this point too… Barring an all-expenses-paid trip, I have no choice but to enjoy them via online resources, simple … "soul-crushing", but simple, really.
While this is hardly a "declaration of destination-intent", it serves as an interesting notion of motivation as I scour thru the www for images of booths since set-up on the day before the doors open to Taipei Toy Festival 2015 @ HUASHAN1914 CREATIVE PARK (No.1, Sec. 1, Bade Rd., Zhongzheng Dist., Taipei City , Taiwan) - because what else could I do, a decade in, but look at dressed-up display booths and windows at geek-cons I have not visited?
Tomorrow I look for dressed-up booths for New York Comic Con instead! Happening the same weekend as TTF, but thank goodness for timezone differences LOL
Remember to state your Booth #in your IG pics, people!
And for all friends and folks at TTF?
Happy Toy Hunting and Happy Sales!
