LFLovers Goes on the Road!

LFLovers Goes on the Road!

What a weekend we had! As an online retailer, we don't often get the opportunity to meet our customers face to face and this is one of the reasons we have added Comic Cons to our plans this year! 

Comic Con Midlands was our second Con of the year and our first all weekender and it did not disappoint! We can not praise the organisers Monopoly Events Team enough - from application to the actual day, everything was smooth and organised! It was a great pleasure to meet some of the team on the day - and encourage them to buy some Loungefly from us at the same time 😂

We were pretty lucky to be the only retailer with a large range of Loungefly and many of our Exclusives! We had mini backpacks, crossbodies, wallets, hoodies, t-shirts and even pet accessories covering fandoms from Star Wars, Marvel to Disney and Pixar! At first we weren't sure if we actually had enough stock - every retailers worry when you cant go back to get additional stock - but luckily we had something for almost everyone who wandered over to our table just 'to have a browse' 🤭

The lineup for Midlands was pretty impressive especially considering this was Monopoly Events first time organising a comic con at Telford International Centre! Our favourites had to be Lucy Lawless, Sophia DiMartino and Jodie Whitaker! The open plan area for the Q & A was a different experience from previous Q & A we had been to which gave a really relaxed and energetic atmosphere.

We were extremely lucky to meet Sophia DiMartino, who was chatty, lovely and very approachable - there may have been a bit of fan-girling from us as BIG Loki TV Series fans 🙈 We did get an autograph, which of course, was on a Loki Loungefly bag! 

As we had set up on the Friday, when we arrived 8am Saturday morning, it meant that we could have a browse round the venue and see the amazing prop and sets and see all the different retailers that were there. Sets varied from Doctor Who, Monsters Inc, Star Wars, Stranger Things and even Only Fools and Horses! 

One of the great things about attending cons by the same organiser is that we got the chance to meet retailers from the previous con, which made us feel welcomed and relaxed especially Tom the Artist who was on the table next to us and kept us entertained throughout the weekend! 

Cosplayers are a big part of any Comic Con and it is always such fun seeing and speaking to so many people in full costume. We had many visit our stand (and even buy some Loungefly!) from Deadpool to Belle to Doctor Who to Darth Vader, there were so many fun characters that made our experience even more fun!

Of course we did some Loungefly spotting during the weekend! It still surprises us just how many people wear Loungefly bags. Its one of the many reasons we love the brand as it gives everyone the opportunity to show off what they love and make their fandom part of their every day style!

We are hoping to grow our attendance at Comic Cons over the next year and be part of more on a frequent basis so keep an eye on our socials for upcoming Comic Con news!

If you ever see us, come over and say hello!
