SDCC 2013

The first custom Ash by Kathie Olivas for SDCC

  • by



Kathie Olivas is bringing the first custom Ash to SDCC in just over a week! Ash is part of the Wandering Misfits mini series coming out with Cardboard Spaceship, but this one isn’t a mini! Ash is quite large and most definitely in charge. Adorned with a nice #3, Ash has big things planned for SDCC and beyond. We’ll probably be seeing more of Ash in the future, and perhaps even more of the misfit crew!

Circus Posterus returns to SDCC to take over the Cardboard Spaceship’s booth #5346 on Saturday, July 20th!

160397bce40111e2829f22000ae9027d_7Amanda Louise Spayd is diligently working her fingers down to tiny, but adorable, nubs getting things in order for San Diego Comic Con 2013! As we reported before, the first edition from the her newly named Dust Bunnies line is a plush bee of epic cuteness named Bumble. Amanda is putting the final stuffing inside and stitches around the seams on only 10 of these little stingers for the CP takeover of Cardboard Spaceship’s booth #5346 on Saturday, July 20th. Yep, you read correctly, 10 of these bee-autiful darlings are coming to San Diego(priced at $125), but have no fear, the rest of the hive will be in her online store later after she recovers from SDCC.

We will be releasing the details on exactly when lucky attendees can get a Bumble at SDCC shortly, so just keep watching the blog, and we will be showing you some more treats in store for the con from Amanda and other CP artists.



All guts and all glory for SDCC

1002772_10151778416278628_1979950962_nEven with anticipation and stress levels rising for SDCC, these two custom bubbleguts by Chris Ryniak bring a much needed snaggletoothed smile to my face. On Saturday, July 20th, Chris will be joined by Brandt Peters and Amanda Louise Spayd at the Cardboard Spaceship booth #5346 when Circus Posterus returns to the San Diego Comic Con.

Chris is bringing a bounty of creatures with him to the convention, and these two burrito filled Bubbleguts are part of the entourage for $700 each. After a long night in the Gaslamp Quarter of eating, partying, and eating again, these two will be looking for a new home on Saturday and a proper nap thereafter. We will have details soon on how we’ll be handling SDCC releases, so keep watching the news feed.


No crumb left uneaten at SDCC

Herd of Crumbs

Hide your pretzels and don’t leave a burrito anywhere near them, because a herd of Crumbeaters are making their way to the San Diego Comic Con!

Chris Ryniak has taken a small handful of these small hunger driven creations and given them each their own distinct personality. You read correctly, every one of these dudes have some added sculpting and attitude! All are distinct and definitely one of a kind. There is just one more finishing touch left on them before they head over to the Cardboard Spaceship booth #5346 on Saturday, July 20th when Circus Posterus takes over for a day.

…and they are HUNGRY!

We will know more soon but remember the San Diego Comic Con is July 17-22! Stop by the Cardboard Spaceship booth(#5346) on Saturday to say hi to Brandt Peters, Chris Ryniak and Amanda Louise Spayd, and check out the work from the Circus Posterus crew!



Circus Posterus at the San Diego Comic Con

  • by


A year ago I flew into San Diego for my annual adventure in lines, more lines, and  fun, and now the San Diego Comic Con is upon us once again!

This year, Circus Posterus makes an extraordinary return to SDCC, with many thanks to the fine folks of Cardboard Spaceship, who are letting us takeover their booth (#5346) on Saturday, July 20th. On hand will be the amazing work of  Chris Ryniak, Brandt Peters, Amanda Louise Spayd, and Kathie Olivas.

In the weeks to come, we will have specifics on what the crew will have for all the fans but for now, we can tell you that there will be loads of customs, originals, new releases, a contest of sorts, and maybe even an exclusive or two. Don’t start lining up yet because we are working out all the specific times for shenanigans, but we will be sure to let you all know ASAP when we have it finalized.

Keep checking back to the blog for more info!


Amanda Louise Spayd and her BUMBLE for SDCC and beyond

  • by

Get ready for bad BEE puns
BumbleAmanda Louise Spayd has created quite the buzz when she started teasing the colony with patterns of black and yellow, and now everyone is wide-eyed and salivating for more information. The first edition series in her newly dubbed Dust Bunnies, these colorful creations are known as Bumbles. 

Flying in at 11″ tall, Bumbles have a  handpainted resin face, cloth body, and paper-wrapped wire antennae with painted wooden balls on top. Amanda designed the body fabric and then had it professionally printed on a thick, high quality linen-cotton canvas. The little bee ears are made of  wool felt, and the insides of the Bumble are stuffed with aspen wood chips and natural cotton. Amanda has also created brass tags for the numbered editions.

Sweater than honey, each gift boxed Bumble will cost $125 with an edition size between 60-70. They will make their first appearance in her shop this July and then more will swarm in for the CP takeover of Cardboard Spaceship’s booth #5346 at SDCC 2013. Get your F5 fingers ready, and pay attention to the blog for SDCC news or you might get STUNG.

Keep an eye out next week, because we are bringing you tons of SDCC goodness from the Circus Posterus crew.

Amanda Louise Spayd is up to something for SDCC

  • by

ALS1Most of us have already been frantically at work researching and planning our SDCC attack for over a month now, and we are still over 7 weeks out. For those that don’t spend hours with web searches and emails, we are here to help!

We already gave you a small look into one thing Chris Ryniak is working on for the convention, but now we can tell you something about what Amanda Louise Spayd is working on. This time around, we have a duo of progress shots for the convention. You can see some early stages and some progression of some Dust Bunny faces coming to life. These one offs for the con seem to be heading in a direction with keyholes. The new addition to the bunnies is very intriguing and makes you wonder if they will come with a vintage key?

Remember Circus Posterus takes over the Cardboard Spaceship booth on Saturday, July 20th during the con. We will have more soon from Mandi, and the rest of the CP artists that will be at SDCC. Don’t worry, we haven’t started the line yet, but SDCC happens in San Diego Thursday, July 18 through Sunday, July 21.



Chris Ryniak brings new Crumbeaters to SDCC

  • by

sdcc-logo1The San Diego Comic Con is less than two months away, and it will be here faster than the Flash hyped up on 4 shots of espresso. The information will start pouring in fast and unexpected as we get closer to preview night, but we’ll keep you up to date on what some of our favorite artists will be up to at this grand ol’ convention.

Circus Posterus will be taking over the Cardboard Spaceship booth on Saturday, and you can bet your Superman tights they will have that booth filled with amazing goods! Up first, we know Chris Ryniak is hard at work in his lab creating perfect monsters, and so far we have seen a new herd of Crumbeaters being born. Still in the early stages, these Crumbeaters have a ways to go before they head out of Ohio to sunny California. We can tell you that each of these big eyed fellas will be different and there will be around 10 or so of them.

Hopefully you got tickets to the con! (If you did, see you there!)
