Where have we been? We have been working on new things and been going to conventions :) So far this year we have been to Ichibancon, Wizard World Raleigh, Lexingcon, and we are looking forward to Nerdcon this weekend! And as a last minute surprise we will be at Animazement this year.
Its been a busy convention year and we have been having a great time- we are putting in some good research & development time into new goodies that you should see on our site and etsy sometime soon. The small army has grown into not so small teenagers now and you'll see them at conventions with us learning the ropes. We got a mention in the Thomasville Times- Thank you guys for featuring us!!
And we have been doing things for fun too-- like meet MEGA BEE!!!
And busy! Holidays, Ichicbancon (Thanks for having us!! It was a blast), late Winter storms and day jobs have delayed us from doing much of anything lately crafty. But we are working on new and creative things- and planning to be at some places near you soon! Thanks to Ichibancon's staff for having us again this year- we look forward to what you guys amaze us with next year! So we are going to definately be at these cons:
April 5th, 2014- Lexing-con. Ymca, Lexington, NC. Con runs till 4 and then the con invades the bowling alley for some cosmic bowling. This is a one day event for charity. Any money collected will be donated to local food banks. 12 and under- free, anyone coming in costume is free, otherwise its a dollar admission. While you are in our great city of Lexington- Stop in and have some delicious BBQ- The Demonik Creations crew Highly suggests Speedy's on Highway 8.
April 26th, 2014- ASU's NERD CON- Boone, NC. ASU Plemmons student Union. ASU's Nerd Network is Hosting NERD CON for the 4th year. Its a free one day convention that hosts panels, a dealers room/artist alley and game room. Its good fun every year and ASU has some of coolest people in the nicest places ever. Hope to see everyone out there to have a great day in the mountains!
May 23-25th,2014- Animazement. Raleigh, NC. Raleigh Convention Center-
We are excited to be in Animazement's artist alley for the 2nd time ever. We have attended AZ for years and really enjoy the con. Hope to see everyone there.
And I think that is pretty much it so far for con scheduling at the moment- we'll update as we get more in. We are also considering a small retail space at a local store, we are still in discussion about that at the moment- but we do have a online retail store via Etsy ( and we love etsy): Demonik Creations
Like us on facebook too! We love Likes!
Also a Bragging moment here- The Small Army that sometimes you see working our table at cons have branched out their wings to try art themselves. They entered the Chair City art contest- where Aiden got honorable mention and the other troops (plus mini trooper- he is the beloved little cousin) picked up certificates for participating. There was some tough competition and we are all proud of the all the Small army for trying new things.
Sometimes Life gives you gifts early that are surprising in Unexpected.
This is Fluffy- a stray found near our house and he adopted us as his people ( he literally jumped in my parents car lol). Someone dumped Fluffy out on the middle of our road due to some serious health issues ( that we are all pitching in to treat currently). On thanksgiving day- Fluffy ran into the woods chasing a squirrel and was unable to make his way back to us( he is partially). Luckily with persistence and determined family members and friends- Fluffy was brought home safely the next day. We were blessed to get such as awesome holiday present so early- we love our Fluffy dog/ hunting Pomeranian.
Sometimes Holidays are stressful with shopping, parties, and everything else you do on top of the extra stuff like work and school. We shouldn't get too busy to take a look at the great things that life has given us like a good family, awesome friends, or a job that pays the bills. Sure maybe all things have some sort of flaw to them- for instance our gift walks with a limp, is blind in one eye, has a love for catching squirrels even if he has to run off in the process of catching them- but the trade off is how much the Fluffy dog loves everyone is really worth it. This holiday season, as well as every day of the year- we here encourage everyone to spread a little kindness- be generous with your time and attention, smile when meeting strangers, - every bit of kindness you put out there makes a difference because that kind of thing is infectious. And we want to let everyone who has met us at cons and chatted with us, bought things from us ( in person or online) and people who have messaged us for various things- that we are thankful and appreciative of you all. We have enjoyed a awesome 2013 creating fun plushies and making use of a great opportunity to teach our kids skills about crafting and money. Thank ALL of you guys for Supporting us!
We will be at Ichibancon 2014 and we are in the process of building a portfolio so hopefully we can be at more cons in 2014. We hope to see you guys at the cons in your awesome cosplays!!
Happy fall everyone! Life here for us has been busy with work, Kids returning to school and the various other daily fires we put out. We had a fabulous time at Hoshicon in June- we had the coolest table buddies and enjoyed meeting everyone. We thank all the staff for having us and hope to be back next year. Currently we are in the lab again making new things to offer ( which will be up in our etsy shop- so check it out from time to time!) , also stocking up for Christmas sales and rebuilding our portfolio to hopefully get into more conventions in 2014.

Wowwee!! That was a fun weekend- we had a blast meeting everyone and thank you to everyone who came by! The con itself out shined last year by far- the venue was awesome, staff pleasant and wonderful, and the cosplayers were terrific as usual :) We would like to give a massive thank you to the con organizers for doing such a great job- we'll definitely try to be back next year. And don't forget if you didn't make it this past weekend- they are going to be there next weekend too with a whole new bunch of artists in the alley, awesome panels, and new guests so check out Ichibancon next weekend if you get a chance- you'll be glad that you did :)
We are in the process of applying for other conventions and seeing what the schedule for the rest of the year is- as soon as we know what is on the itinerary we'll let you guys know. We are always coming up with something new so if you are interested watch our etsy shops for the newest creations out of the studio :)
Thanks again for everyone's support- we are grateful for all of you!
We just wanted to stop for a moment and give a Giant "THANK YOU!" to all of the customers, the convention jurors that decide wither or not to allow us in to their convention's artist alley, and the many friends who have lend a hand in running the artist tables. Without you guys we cannot do any of this. We started this site and etsy shop as a side job to offer a little extra spending money while enjoying a crafting hobby but as anything goes in a tight economy the sales of the handicrafts have provided enormous support- from helping with car repairs to helping pay utility bills. We want to thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts for the support that you guys have provided to Demonik Creations in 2012, and we hope that you guys will continue to check us out in 2013. We want to keep growing and offering more things that people love- so if you have a suggestion, please let us know! And if you have pictures with you and your Demonik Creations Item- please send it to us ( just let us know if we can use the image on our site- we will credit the photo to you, of course) We love to see pictures of people enjoying things we made :)
We will be at Ichibancon in Charlotte, january 4-6th, Please stop by to see us if you are there. We have a few new items that we are debuting at Ichibancon that we are pretty excited about and we are excited for you guys to see them! Have a Happy and Safe
The Pikachu inspired Hat Josh made- Thank you Stephanie for letting us use the picture!
THANK YOU to all of you awesome people who have ordered stuff from us this holiday season! We have been making runs to the post office and astounding our postal lady with the amount of things that we have been shipping out.

We'll be at Ichibancon the first weekend- so please stop by and say hello! We'll be reopening the etsy shop on 1/3/2013 for any questions, comments, commissions and orders so please check back with us! Thank you all for making this a awesome holiday season for us here at Demonik Creation Studios! Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a Happy Happy New Year!!!
