Designer Con 2013

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Hey all,

Tomorrow and Sunday, Designer Con is being held at the Pasadena Convention Center.

"What is DesignerCon?

Designer Con is an annual art and design convention that smashes together collectible toys and designer apparel with urban, underground and pop art!"

Tickets are $5 online and $7 at the door:

This is a great show. Probably my favorite convention of the year next to ALF Con.

It's 2 days this year so come on down and see how the toys are made.

It's great for kids too.
