More assorted Japanese candies & food such as Gummi Chocos & Bento Boxes...didn't see them last year. I always have to get my fill during Sakura-con.

Dealer's Hall is now about 60% reserved.  If people know of any specific vendors they want me to approach, now is a good time to let me know.  A couple people contacted me asking me to add certain names to the announce list and I have done so. 

I think I've been able to meet at least a few of your requests for items with some of the new vendors :)

I shop for merchandise from oldies animes, and cheap manga specials. Also maybe some homemade one of a kind goodies.

Cause honestly everything else I can order online for cheaper.

We increased Artist Alley from 20 booths to 26, so that should mean a significant increase in homemade stuff.

As strange as this might sound, I really enjoy seeing vendors that don't have anime-related stuff. When I walk through the dealer's room I've already been there, seen that with the anime merch. I love seeing booths that are diverse, including artist alley items. I'd love to see stuff from popular movies and whatnot.

Aside from that I like seeing plushies.. >> And adorable things in general..

Practically the only reason I go to cons is for the yaoi. I buy at least $200 worth of yaoi manga, so I'm hoping that guy who is always there that sells it, can't remember the name but I believe he's from cali??, will be at kumori con again. Everything else I'm not into, lol.

I think serval good vendors would be wig vendors, contact lens vendors, and japanese fashion vendors.

As far as companies to do this, I still need to research. But I know for contacts Exotic Lenses had a booth at SaukraCon and sold very high quailty lenses. http://www.exoticlenses.com/store/

I understand wig vendors are more difficult to come by, but I'll look around a bit.

But I definitly hope someone (if not me) finds a vendor for japanese fashion! I want to indulge myself in kimonos and yukatas! I want to find a cute lolita dress! And I definitly want to shock my parents with some V-Kei!
Hahaha. Point being, I want japanese clothing. XD

Fanart stuff is definitly allowed in Artist Alley.  

I know that J-Box sends buyers to Japan and they just buy up stuff over there and bring it back.  Outside of that I don't know.  Some things like kitty-hats and stuff are just made here by small groups.  

so if i were to make Stained Glass anime merchandise I could sell them in the artist ally? Because i really want to have a table and sell stained glass anime characters.

Could you please please please bring in more food vendors that carry imported Japanese foods? I only saw one this past year and they ran out of stuff so fast I couldn't get anything.
Also I would love it if you were to bring the people who made the custom vampire teeth back, I think they would be very popular ^^

I would honestly like to see more fanworks - not necessarily of already made characters, but stories and art and webcomics/books that people make themselves.

I also would like to try to get a booth this year, because I didn't get a chance last year :/

I'm wondering if there will be any US companies in the dealer's room selling brand lolita clothing? Such as Tokyo Rebel or Harajuku Hearts, just as an example. Does anyone know this? I'm curious about brand clothing, not handmade goods by other artists, specifically.

Not likely, considering the small market they'd have here.

I would like to bring my costume weapons back for 2010. I was there at 2008 and I have been at Sakuracon for many years. The last year or so I have been having family issues, which are now lax enough for me to rejoin the con circuit.

I'd like to see the Anime Pavilion.  I've loved how they do business and they've been a part of my experience at Kumoricon the last 6 years i've gone.  They also offer great deals and are very friendly and can be chatty.
If you mean content as well, i'd like to see Figures and other fan merchandise.  DVDs can be overrated and cost too much for what it's worth.  I usually find them for cheap online or find them at a pawn shop.
Wall scrolls and etc are rare outside of cons so bringing in merchandise and the Anime Pavilion would make this year phenomenal!

I would like to see more Japanese food and candy. Not just the stuff Uwjamaya has but like the stuff  anime asylum gets, the last time I was there they had Ginger Ale Kit-Kat's and other Japanese imported Foods/Flavors that you can't get off the shelf.

I would also like to see some more clothes/costumes not just t-shirts and cloaks - like kimonos, shoes and Lolita.

Also if you could find a vender who sells Yaoi stuff not just books but pc games and other stuff that is hard to get unless purchesed online. I saw a vendor like that at K-con when it was in Washington but haven't seen another. 

I think youre right. My first Sakuracon, I got LOTS of yaoi things, and when I went to K-con for the first time in 07 I was slightly sad to see they didnt have a lot. More yaoi and yuri would be nice. And more food would be great. I know here in Bend we have Wabi Sabi and they have a lot of different flavors of Ramune and Pocky that Ive never seen. Like pumpkin! My god that stuff is amazing lol It would be great if they ended up having a booth at Kumoricon this year. Maybe I could talk the owner into it lol I k now they have the Kit Kats you mentioned, I just bought some. And they have a lot of different candies i think youd like.

I love to see people making home-made things! Pastries a few years back, others make Deco items, home made hats, cell phone charms or small jewelry peices. I'd rather buy those things from local people than mass made in china :3

Especially the wig and contact lenses. that way if someone gets the costume in the dealers hall they can get the wig and contacts too. ^_^ and Japanese clothing is hard to find but so awesome. Im kind of looking towards kimonos and hakamas mostly, lol.

I'd like to see more music-specific vendors.

More specifically, there was one vendor who I saw in 2006 and 2007 who always stood out as the only music vendor present in those years. I'm sure anyone can tell who I'm talking about (I just don't remember the vendor's name). This is the booth that always had J-Rock playing, lots of Visual Kei posters, stuff like that. I loved it and always spent a good deal of money there, but have since not seen any vendors who specialize in music.

I personally would love to see more J-Rock merch =.= I believe someone did say this before but I looked through the music places too and only found Gackt >=| THAT GUY WAS EVERYWHERE!!!! It drove me nuts xDD

Yeah but I'm a major J-rock fan and I would love to see more of it at the con~ ^^ Oh and Japanese imported stuff too~ ^-~ Like from the popular fashions like Lolita, Decora, V-Kei and Oshare, etc. ^^

And I second the whole bento boxes and house hold stuff like that~

Any chance at us getting at least one music-specific vendor this year? I know there are several, at least, who would love to see it and peruse their wares.

Well i know i've seen bento boxes at Uwajimaya, but i'm unsure about how big their sizes get considering i only looked at a couple of them.
