I’ve been selling the etched glassware at conventions for two and a half years now, and at the very first one where I carried this product (thanks to Erik for the idea and starting boost), in order to entertain myself and the passers-by who seemed to like the My Little Pony designs, I took three extra shot glasses and made a little box out of paper and labeled it “Cutie Mark Crusaders Gift Set”. I’d hold it out to the customers and they’d peer into the box and try to make out what symbols were on the glasses, but since the Cutie Mark Crusaders didn’t have cutie marks, the glasses were blank, and it would always take them a minute to get the joke, and then they’d laugh, and I’d laugh and we’d have fun.
Well, I’m now proud to present, for the first time ever, at Running of the Leaves convention tomorrow, the actual Cutie Mark Crusaders Gift Set, thanks to the recent release of the episode “Crusaders of the Lost Mark”.
I’m not even mad. Lookit those things!
These are also actually 10 oz drinking glasses rather than shot glasses (we can’t have fillies taking shots after all), the first time I’ll have them with me at a convention, so we’ll see how people respond to the size.
Oh, and if you’re in the Denver area and you like cartoon horses and you’re not doing anything else this weekend, I hope to see you at Running of the Leaves. I’ll be in the vendor room.
