Thank you so much to everyone who dropped by! – E. RECTO

From our tumblr:

We would like to thank everyone who dropped by our booth. Thank you so much for buying and for showing your interest in our works. Today has been tiring, nerve-wracking, and exciting for all of us. It was all worth it. We didn’t expect that a lot of people will be interested in our prints and pins. We can’t thank you guys enough.

This is our first con and we have no plans of stopping here. We will try our best to improve and offer more merch next time. Don’t hesitate to contact us about anything. 😀

See you soon! Thank you so much for your support. 🙂

Again, thank you so much everyone! ;v;)/

BLush Con + a certain BL anthology

I always say this but I’m terribly sorry for the lack of updates. ;; As always, uni gets in the way of everything but on the brightside, I’m actually pretty relaxed since I’m now an irregular student. Although I really can’t spend that much time on the PC these days since my major subjects just became harder to handle even with my very free schedule (I only go to uni 3 times a week, so).

Also, I’m pretty much busy preparing for the most anticipated BL convention here in the Philippines—BLush. As I said in my previous entry, my circle and I will be part of the marketplace. We’ll be selling pins, bookmarks, cellphone straps and prints! ;v;

We recently made a tumblr—click!
It’s still quite empty but we promise we’ll update as much as we can! We’re quite new with selling stuff especially in this upcoming BL con where we’ll be selling prints and other things on the spot ahhh. ;; Oh and if you’re attending the BLush Con and currently reading this, since most of us do digital works, we won’t accept on-the-spot commissions that day. We’ll ask you to just write your request on a sheet of paper (but we’ll most probably just put it on our cellphones) and discuss payment process after.

2 weeks left until the said event so hopefully all our preparations will be done earlier considering we’re all busy with our own personal works. orz;

As for this blog’s current status, I’m already frustrated about not being able to update this (and homodesu@tumblr) that much but as I always say (like, for the 10000000000000000000000000th time already), I’ll try my best to update both of them. I was actually doing a couple of review drafts I can’t remember when I started though but yeah. I was actually excited to show you guys my last purchases a couple of months ago but meh, uni happened. ;;

I haven’t really mentioned it yet before but have you guys heard of Right BL he Youkoso?
I was reminded by a friend when I saw her post it on Tumblr. I was actually curious about it when I got to read it on the release list before but I only got to see the title and didn’t really know what is was about, lol. The title is written as “ライトBLへようこそ” (Raito BL he Youkoso), I was actually wondering at how Raito is read—Light or Right—but then when I read the description I guess “Right” it is?

So basically it’s a BL guidebook. I’ve seen a lot of similar guidebooks in the past but haven’t encountered a comic one like this? I usually see novels so this one is pretty interesting—not to mention the mangaka lineup!  I checked today on HMV and it’s already available! (I was trying to pre-order before but it wasn’t on their website D:)

If you already have a copy of the book please do tell me how it is! ;v;)/

I’m sure if not all, most of you already know about this, especially fujoshis in the Philippines. 8)

I’m not really the type who goes to conventions but I was informed about this by a very lovely and talented senior (fashion) blogger/photographer who I got to know years ago—thanks again, Ate Chai! ❤
Also, it will be the first time I’ll be meeting those I only get to talk with online (including my own circle) so I’m pretty excited!

Quite late to talk about this since I was busy with uni and September is not really a good month for me since prelims and whatnots. orz;

So if anyone of you will be going, I would just like to say that my circle might participate in the market. ;u; ❤
We’ll be selling Kurobas stuff plus other fandoms you lovelies might like! Although we’re still not sure about the market, we’re participating in the anthology. We were supposed to send in our original mangas but then due to busy schedules in work and school, we just decided to contribute artworks instead. My circle is still very new since we only got to form it this year due to our excessive love for BL, ossans and… shotas…. /cough

Mmm, I remember having few Filipino readers so I hope I get to see you guys there? ;w; it will be awesome if we follow each other in tumblr/twitter so I can keep you guys updated about our table. ;w;

And, please don’t expect much since we only started and we’re not that good (yet!) but we’ll be giving away free prints so please do visit our table! ;w; ❤
We’ll be posting more details about it soon!
