Sometimes it all gets away from us. We get busy setting up and then we get busy selling and chatting and somehow, we never get photos taken. Sometimes we really are that tired. This is the ONE photo from San Diego Comic Con 2011 that we currently have. Proof that we were there, but you knew that already because you guys came out in droves and we saw an lot of you (especially that one girl whose “costume” was basically a bikini!).
We had some new merch, and a little bit of a new look, what with that crazy big card stand and the pink backdrop. And we hope to do it all again, with more new merch and maybe some new signage and a new drop cloth and new…whew…getting tired just thinking about it.
Well hey there, it’s been a while. But you know, even when we are not here blogging, we are still tired girls and we are still thinking about all our lovely friends who visit our very pink table at various events. After taking the winter off we’re back to work and planning some fun new stuff in a fun new year. And yes, we have confirmation for lift off….Tired Girl will be at SDCC once again in 2012. We can’t wait to see you all there!
Well, the Tired Girls have returned from San Diego Comic Con 2011 and before we can even fully recover, we will head out for Unique L.A.’s first summer show at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica.
We hope to see you there, and until then, check out this nice article from the L.A. Weekly that mentions us and some of our friends from Comic-Con’s small press pavilion.
Tired Girl Collective is just that—a group of exhausted women who stay up late making cards, art, jewelry, and all manner of cuteness served up on a bright pink table. From pin-up girls to hamster haiku to bingo ball rings, our signature style is just this side of rude and slightly left of nerdy. You won’t find us at the local mall, the corner store, or even the online marketplace. But you WILL find us when your need is greatest—at San Diego Comic Con, the occasional Los Angeles area craft fair, and our home on the web, www.tiredgirl.info. At the core we are Karen Lucrece (sometimes known as Ren), Miss Smith, and SnarkyDork (a.k.a. Jodi), but the sands are ever-shifting and our wares are always evolving. Out of great pinkness comes great cuteness. Out of great exhaustion comes… Tired Girl Collective.
We were last seen at the Unique L.A. Show in 2010, but we’re getting ready all new appearances in 2011. You can find some of the Tired Girls at San Diego at Comic-Con International from July 21 to 24. Well…you can find us there if you have passes. SDCC has gotten so big and so crazy that you may not be able to get in. And we know that, so we’re going to be at Unique LA in Santa Monica the following weekend (July 30 & 31), just in case you missed us in San Diego.
We’ve got all kinds of new silliness to show you and we’re as pink and sparkly as ever, so we shouldn’t be hard to find. Come on by and say hi! We’d love to meet you. And as usual…bring coffee…we’re very, very tired.
Hey, did you see us at Comic-Con last year? We premiered our SFX rings and man do we love ‘em! We love ‘em so much, they are back again with new designs and new materials. I can’t wait to show them to you, but until we see you in Small Press (at table M03, the one that’s really awfully pink and girly) take a gander at last year’s model!
If you aren’t familiar with the Tired Girl Collective, well…hey, hi, howyadoin’? We’re the Tired Girl Collective. We are exactly what we call ourselves. We are tired, we are all girls (well, we’re women, but “girls” makes us sound younger) and collectively, we create art, jewelry, poetry, books, stuffed critters…pretty much anything your little heart could desire. If it’s adorable, geeky, sweet or nerdy, we’re making it. The tricky part is, we’re only selling it on special occasions. We don’t have a store, and you won’t find us in the mall. You will, however, find us at the world famous San Diego Comic Con in 2011, and before that we will be pink and proud at Unique L.A.
Ms. Smith likes to say “our signature style is just this side of rude and slightly left of nerdy” and I like to say…well, I like to say, if you’re a little odd, we’ll probably get along just fine.
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the jewlery Ms. Smith will be peddling at Unique L.A. And if you keep stopping by I’ll keep posting some stuff we’re working on…
Hey, guess what!! The Tired Girls will be representin’ at Unique L.A.!
If you are familiar with our wares from San Diego Comic Con, you’ll certainly recognize our bright pink table and yawning girl logo (I still say she’s screaming!). And if you’ve never met us before, we look forward to showing you just how nerdy, geeky, dorky and tired we are. Please do stop by and say hi! (And, as always, bring coffee! We’ll be TIRED from all the holiday running around!)
And you’ll be able to find us, with our cards and jewelry and pinups and nonsense, at table T21. Right across from, no surprise here…THE COFFEE!
Hope we see you there!
