An Oddmall for Oddballs

Michael MacWolff

Hey everyone, I've been taking a short hiatus from cosplay work to get ready for one of my biggest vending events of the year, Oddmall!

While sales were a little slower than usual this year, I still had a blast and sold plenty of stuff. 


I had all of my usual wares, including ties, bow ties, jewelry, life counters, buttons, borbs, and bowtruckles! Also, my last remaining mimic, which I need to find some more fun containers to make a few more.

Besides hanging out and peddling my wares, this event was my first opportunity to show off my brand new creature carrier! For those of you who don't follow my Instagram, my sister got me this awesome backpack for my birthday.


Of course I'm not going to take this thing camping, but I did turn it into a mobile creature carrier!


As of right now, there are a total of 19 species on here, and naturally I plan to add more as I make/acquire more. Here's what you can find on there, see if you can spot them on the pack (some of them are harder to see than others):

  1. Phoenix
  2. Runespoor
  3. Drive Imp
  4. Fwooper
  5. Puffskein
  6. Bowtruckle
  7. Jewel Spider (made by Amanda's Arachnids)
  8. Golden Snidget
  9. Lagget
  10. Demiguise
  11. Jabberknoll
  12. Kraken Spawn (is mostly hidden behind the jabberknoll cage)
  13. Raiju
  14. Journeyer
  15. Niffler
  16. Doxie
  17. Wood Nymph (made by C.M. Manfredi)
  18. Amustelid
  19. Lethifold (is completely hidden behind the wood nymph in all the photos)

I picked up a few new critters this weekend too, from some of my favorite fellow cryptozoologists!


First off I got a new kraken spawn from Tindle Bears, after my last one managed to escape. They are quite crafty creatures and skilled escape artists, so I'll have to be more careful with their aquarium in the future.


We also have an as-yet-unnamed species (left) created by She-Jackal Arts, who instantly charmed me and I wore him around for the rest of the day sticking out of my vest. And we also have a succuludo, a species in the succuloid family. These desert creatures differ from the common succuloid morphology but have similar survival strategies in the harsh, dry environment in which they are found. This lovely creature was created by Turkey-Eyes Art, who I made friends with a couple of years ago at Oddmall when we nerded out over magical creatures together. They created the original fwooper I have as well, and I liked their face so much I made a similar one when I created my own fwooper.

It will be some time before I can get these new creatures situated into their home here, and I look forward to studying each of them and finding out just how they live and what they can do!

Until next time, stay werid ;-)

Oddmall Recovery//Back to the Grindstone

Michael MacWolff

This is a thing, right?

So my extended hiatus was primarily due to having Oddmall this past weekend, one of my biggest vending events of the year! It went swimmingly, aside from having more crap than usual and therefore taking longer to set up than anticipated. But I made more money than I have at any single event in my tenure so that was exciting!

Here you see my convention partner (mom) with our lovely setup! I had all of my usual items including MtG life counters; buttons steampunk airships, weapons and jewelry; ties & bow ties; along with a new venture using the same fabric: headbands! It was an idea I got while teaching sewing lessons; we made a few there and I realized we could just as easily make them reversible, and I could use all of the leftover fabric from my ties, as there's always odd shapes leftover that are hard to use for anything sizable. Additional ventures include some Luna Lovegood inspired lion hats (which were much admired but not purchased), continued forays into the world of crocheting adorable little characters, which I focused on cute magnanimous ones over the specific characters I usually do. Though I did make an entire team RWBY which sold all together, and someone actually bought the little Aang I had too. But most popular were the Soot Sprites, Calcifers, and most of all the BB-8s. 

I also finally have a much more legitimate sign that I didn't just do a 4th grade-style pencil rubbing on the front of my life counter carrying case... It even has some pretty tartan on it! 

And of course for an event like this, there's still plenty of costuming going on! As usual for my vending events, I went steampunk, with a little flair of Star Wars this time around. And my neighbors were awesome, and the guy decided to come back as the guy from Clockwork Orange on Sunday.

So now that all of that's over with and I can go back to focusing on the whole cosplay thing, here's what I've got going on.

First and foremost, I finished both of the items you saw in progress last time (you know, 3 weeks ago when I actually posted something last).

Both items are now with their respective owners and I'm moving on to the 15 new things I need to have done before Colossalcon. Oh boy. Here's the list:

Auron's katana (FFX)

Auron's katana (FFX)

Klaus' Gauntlet & Knuckles (Blood Blockade)

Klaus' Gauntlet & Knuckles (Blood Blockade)

Goku's Power PoleCarrier (Dragonball)

Goku's Power PoleCarrier (Dragonball)

Another Blunderbuss (Bloodborne)

Another Blunderbuss (Bloodborne)

Sakura's Bloom Festal (FE:fates)

Sakura's Bloom Festal (FE:fates)

Oh yeah, and if by some miracle I get all of this done early, I have someone who want's Takumi's Bow...

Not to mention the Team Avatar that I'm going to be doing with Jordan and a group of cousins, for which I still need to make Book 3 Aang and Zuko. Thank god Aang's outfit is just a pair of pants with some fabric draped over his shoulders... and Zuko's involves a lot of fancy little details... FML

So, this is what you can expect from me this coming month... and if you're not hearing from me, I'm probably stuck underneath a pile of worbla, so maybe send help.

May the 4th be with you

Hey there ladies and gents, Mikey's back at you with an awesome offer for this most auspicious and space-fantasy-centric day!


You too can look this dapper and awesomely nerdy with one of these Bow TIE Fighters from Kilted Katana Productions. Not only can you show off your style to all your fellow Star Wars geeks, but you'll have a wonderful visual pun gracing your collar, and it doesn't get much better than that. And if this wasn't awesome enough, to celebrate Star Wars Day, you can pick one of these bad boys up for only $10! That's a whole $5 cheaper than ever before!

Well, don't just stand there gawking at my pretty face, go pick up one of these awesome little imperial starfighters for yourself!

I know it's not exactly cosplay, but it's cool enough to warrant a blog post ;-)
