Well, darlings, have we got news for you! Grab your wigs, your contouring brush, and your best set of sequins—we’re going to RuPaul’s DragCon!
The con is May 7th and 8th, with a little preview night on the 6th, in sunny Los Angeles. This will be the convention’s second year, but a first for Sock Dreams, and we couldn’t be more excited! Dreamers Nina and Rose will be bringing you the best in fabulous socks and fierce legwear, including selections from our very own Dream Stockings and Dreamer Socks lines, the spectacular curvy-friendly tights from the Big Tights Company, and a few other surprises!
Come sashay your way to Booth 332 and say hello-hello-hello!
Wow, what a con! This was the first year Emerald City Comic Con expanded to four days instead of three, and what a difference that extra day made. One more day of seeing fantastic cosplay, buying fantastic trinkets, and meeting our fantastic customers!
And what lovely customers they were, too! Although we didn’t have a chance to snap pictures of everyone we saw, we’re loving the pics we did get.
Kate, Kimberly, and Tehia donned Striated OTKs in navy & royal, Elemental Striped Thigh Highs in Zephyr, and Extraordinary Striped Thigh Highs in tan & dark brown to accessorize their con looks.
It was great to be part of such an exciting con, and we loved the extra day we got to spend helping our socks find the perfect homes. A big thank you to anyone who stopped by our booth during ECCC! If you incorporated any of your purchases into costumes (or signature looks), we’d love to see them. Share them to us on Facebook or our other social media platforms, or email them to us at email@example.com. And be sure to let us know if you want us to share them with others–though we’re happy to see them either way!
It’s that time of year again: convention season!
One of our favorite parts of being in the sock-peddling business is helping people find the right socks for them. As a mostly-online business, we don’t get to do this in person much, especially outside of our rainy Portland area. That’s why we get so excited for convention season! It gives us that much-needed chance to interact with some of our loyal customers in person, as well as giving some of you a chance to see our products up close.
We’ve got a great line-up this year, with some conventions across the country, as well as closer to our home in the Pacific Northwest. If we’re going to be in your area, come say hi!

Dreamer Lucy as Ramona Flowers
Although we can’t claim supernatural powers of prediction, there are a few things we’re expecting (and hoping) to see a lot of this year. And a few recommendations that will help you keep this year’s cosplay on point.
Super Heroes (and Villains)
With so many super hero movies (and TV shows) coming out this year, we’re expecting to see a lot of Marvel and DC’s finest wandering the con floor. From Deadpool to Captain America, there’s a lot of material to cover. We’re hoping Wonder Woman will also put in an appearance, even though she won’t get her own movie until 2017.
- Rock a Deadpool-inspired look with some Extraordinary Striped Thigh Highs in black and red.
- Grab some Fishnet Pantyhose or Sporty Striped OTKS (with red or blue top stripes) to put that finishing touch on your Suicide Squad Harley Quinn cosplay.
Blast from the Past
Never has the phrase “everything old is new again” felt quite so accurate, at least in the con scene. This year will see a lot of familiar faces gracing the big and small screens; whether it’s Mulder and Scully’s return to investigating X-Files, a new generation of Star Wars fans out in force, or the re-imaging of everyone’s favorite ghost-busting team, 2016 feels comfortably nostalgic.
- Grab some delightful neutrals to compliment your Jedi attire. Strong with the force are these socks, yes.
- There’s nothing quite as fashionable as some classic green slime. Who you gonna call?
Animation continues to win many hearts, both young and less-young, and this year promises to see a bunch of cosplayers doing their fandoms proud. Old favorites continue to stay strong, with a plethora of Sailor Moon and Adventure Time cosplayers (remember Rae’s Fionna cosplay from last year?), as well as some newer favorites like One Punch Man and RWBY. With the end of Gravity Falls, we’re expecting to see a bunch of fans giving their favorite series the appropriate sendoff (though of course, the end of a show never means the end of cosplay!), in addition to a continuing rise in Steven Universe cosplayers.
- Where will your star go? Whether ankle or thigh, we’ve got a few options to help pull together your Steven Universe-inspired look.
- Don some Toe-Tal Recall Midcalves to give homage to a certain Demon Cyborg.
As always, sometimes the most exciting costumes are the unexpected ones, so never feel confined to the current trends! Regardless of who you’re dressed as (even yourself!) we love to see our items in action, so if you’re wearing anything you purchased from us, be sure to visit our booth at one of the cons we’re attending! Your picture may even end up in one of our con reports.
We had a blast at our latest event, Rose City Comic Con. Now it is time for us to bring our season to a close with one last event. Geek Girl Con is this weekend in Seattle, WA and we’ll be there! We’re bringing our socks, our con exclusives, and a special deal! Stop by booth 105 to see them for yourselves.
Geek Girl Con is the perfect time to come and pick up socks for that Cosplay you’ve been working on. Once you’ve got you costume put together, don’t forget to snap a photo or two and send them into our Dreamer Dress Up Contest. You could win one of three $50 gift cards! You can find out how to enter and see a list of complete rules here!
Have fun, drive safe, and we’ll see you at the Conference Center on October 10th and 11th at booth 105!
