Gaijin Taiyaki’s Events for November 2019

Hey all! There is so much going on over here… let’s start with the events we’re participating in!

First- November 8-10, we will be at the Comic Gamer Expo, happening at the Broward County Convention Center! Play alongside pro gamers, meet Hollywood Celebrities, Voice Actors, Comic Artists, join the Cosplay, fashion shows, panels, and much more! Ticket and more information at https://www.gamercomicexpo.com.

Second- one of our favorite cons- Anime Iwai is happening November 15-17 at the Fort Lauderdale Mariott North. Come hang out for a weekend of chill/ party/ both- good times for all! This con is generally where we like to try out new flavors, so you know… come see us, ok? Visit https://animeiwai.com for info and tickets!

Third- another new one for us, The Southwest Florida Comic Con on November 23rd, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Ft. Myers. This is our first west coast con, we are looking forward to spreading our fins in a whole new place. Check out https://www.swfloridacomiccon.com for info, we’d love to see you there!

Now, with all this going on, there is one other exciting piece of news- GAIJIN TAIYAKI IS MOVING TO CLERMONT FL! Earlier this year, we determined that being more centrally located would allow us to do more events around the state, so that is what we’re doing. Moving is hard, moreso with event after event happening, so special orders are turned off for the moment. If there’s something you need, just send us an email and we’ll see if we can make it happen! We hope the move will be done by the end of the year. We will still be doing all the cons and events we do already, and hopefully more down south, but this extends our reach so far! We are doing our first out of state con in Valdosta GA (http://tigerconvention.com) in March!

That’s all the news for now! We hope to see all your smiling faces and incredible cosplays soon!

Big news!

Gaijin Taiyaki was accepted as a vendor at MegaCon Orlando! Can you believe it? May 16-19, we’ll be there, slinging ‘yakis and keeping you fed! We hope we will see you there.

If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, you already know this- and you already know that we’ve recently had to increase our price. The new price is $4 each or 3 for $10, but for you, our loyal followers, you can get the old price at cons by placing a pre-order for Sampler Packs, for the rest of 2019. Pre-orders will be available the week before the event on our Square store: https://squareup.com/store/gaijin-taiyaki

This weekend is Hatsume Festival at Morikami Museum, it’s going to be so much fun! See you there!

SuperCon, PromCon 2018 and… THE FOOD TRUCK?!

Hi Guys, there is soooo much going on. And it’s ALL GOOD.

First- SuperCon was last week and it was such a success. We made a record 5k taiyaki for the event. Here are the boys hamming it up for me on Sunday when we’d sold the last one. Cam was so, so tired.

But the BIG BIG news is this- we are getting a FOOD TRUCK. We realized about a year ago that we’ve taken taiyaki as far as we can with cons, and it’s time to expand. The recent announcement of the demise of Animate! Miami and Paradise City made that even more apparent. We announce that the search was on on Thursday July 5th, and by the following Sunday, we had secured THE TRUCK. And here it is šŸ™‚

Friends, it needs a lot of help to become the Gaijin Taiyaki (and more) truck, so we are doing two things.Ā  First, is theĀ GoFundMeĀ (clicky clicky!) to help us raise donations. Our goal isĀ  $5k, but it would be so nice to blow that out of the water! Please help us in our quest and share that link! The OTHER thing we are doing is holding an event atĀ Undergrounds Coffeehaus in Fort Lauderdale, and we’re calling it PromCon 2018! It’s going to be on August 25th, tickets are $20, and all proceeds go towards the truck. We intend to have the truck there, in whatever state it’s in, to be admired and toured by attendees. We are really excited about everything coming up and we hope you are too. Tickets for PromCon, along with custom one of a kind shirts, postcards from the truck, and other fun ways to help us out can be foundĀ on our online store!
