A few weeks ago, the Dayton Circus Creative Collective held the 2nd Annual Dayton Crafty-Con to raise funds for their 8th annual Sideshow. It was basically a craft show & sale, but with a bonus "Battle of the Crafters," a kind of Iron Chef-style crafting competition. I got some really awesome goodies, talked to some great people, and managed to take a few pics along the way. Oh, and had an awesome mac-n-cheese gourmet hot dog from the Zombie Dogz food truck. Love them! I didn't get pics of all the vendors, because there were a lot, and they were all awesome, and my camera battery died in like, the first half hour. (I can't seem to stop saying awesome. It just was.) I did manage to get some fuzzy cell phone pics, but there are a lot more pictures on the Crafty-Con Facebook page, so visit the links below.
|The theme for the second round was "music" and resulted in this Deadmau5-style headgear.|
|The winner of the second round. Dope!|
|The third round crafters created a decorative mirror, a mobile, and the winning entry, a tote bag in the "circus" theme.|
|The championship round winners and their Sideshow donations vessel, to be used at a future Sideshow event!|
|Food truck love|
|I tried the "Calling in Dead" and it was delish!|
|Loved the knitted can coozies with a handy handle. Loved them enough I bought one as a gift for my sister. More beer, fewer beer fouls. Win-win! Thanks Blue Planet Creations!|
|Cute knitted monsters. Grr!|
|The fairy gardens were extraordinary. My camera just couldn't capture them right. |
See FairyGardensByLori on Facebook for more pics.
