DesignerCon is the annual gathering of vinyl toy aficionados, and on this, D-Con’s ninth year, there will be 150 vendors, art, custom shows and other folks that share interest in designer toys at the Pasadena Convention Center Center. Attendees will be able to peruse a variety of apparel, plush, prints, sculpture, and art along with, obviously, an astonishing amount of limited edition vinyl toys and exclusive designs by artists including 40Threads, Angry Woebots, Dez Einswell, Frank Kozik, Jryu, Luke Chueh, Mathew Curran, Noah, OG Slick, Scribe, Sucklord, Brandt Peters, Kathie Olivas, Shing Yin Khor, Chris Ryniak, DrilOne, Travis Louie and Amanda Louise Spayd.
D-Con 2013 will feature discussions and activities for participants and many artist signings. Since D-Con was founded by vinyl toy companies to provide a safe place for fans, artists and vendors to meet, the continuing emphasis on creativity and connection is what makes the event popular every year. Two days of admission offers an exciting chance to witness graffiti inspired art toys in the Pasadena Convention Center.
