Sakura Con is the Pacific Northwest’s largest Anime convention. Con goers can dress up as their favorite anime character, find a large variety of Manga and Anime to buy, and enjoy panels on everything from voice acting to the art of anime, to interactive games.
Dreamer Jen especially looks forward to seeing one of her favorite regular vendors, Epic Cosplay, who have a huge variety of inexpensive wigs.
This year, Sock Dreams will be located at booth 243, in the back end of the convention hall. We’ll be passing out stickers and our new buttons, as well as selling the Sock Dreams brand at discounted con prices. Come by and see us!
To go along with our beautiful new layout, and our most recent newsletter, we are so pleased to bring you our latest sticker design! Our logo fairy likes to hide among Spring flowers, and never matches her socks–here she has on two different Dreamy Knees in Peacock and Seaside. If you’d like to take home a Sock Dreams fairy of your very own, just politely invite her in your Order Notes. To keep your little winged lady happy, make sure to place her near something floral and leave gifts of bread and honey in your garden.
It’s that time again Sock Dreams fans! Time for Dreamer Jen to pack up all the dreamiest socks and hit the road with her lovely assistant, Dreamer Rose, to spread the love of Sock Dreams. We have a very busy con season this year, and nearly ALL the cons we’re attending are out of our home state of Oregon.
To kick off this year’s events, we are attending Planet Comic Con, a comic and pop culture convention that takes place in Kansas City, MO on March 14-16. The main attraction of this event is a big Star Trek: The Next Generation reunion, at a special panel called Trek-Tacular! In honor of their appearance, we have made up some very specially themed stickers that will be available at booth #225.
After Planet Comic Con ends, we’re back for a week and then we’ll be heading up to Seattle, March 28th-30th, for our second year at Emerald City Comic Con. This year we’ll have a bigger booth, more socks, new con-exclusive stickers, AND potentially some new swag… We’ve also been working directly with the creators of ECCC to get them special Emerald City logo socks, which they will be selling at their merch booth. Stop by booth #202 and check us out!
There will be a bunch more events coming up through the rest of spring and into summer. If you live in Kansas City or Seattle, stop by and see us! If you know about a convention in your area that you’d like to see us at, let us know!
We’ve got a new sticker for you, just in time for your Mardi Gras orders! Our lovely logo lady is decked out in her Fat Tuesday finest, with mask, feathers, beads and Green Knees. To receive a sticker in your next order, write “I would like a Mardi Gras sticker please” in your Order Notes.
Unlike many residents of northern climate zones, we in Portland very rarely see snow, so when it actually sticks as it did last week, the city really shuts down. This is partially due to a lack of snow plows or experience driving in snow, but also because it’s such a rare occurrence that we all just want to take the day off & enjoy it!
Here at Sock Dreams we feel a deep responsibility for keeping everyone’s toes warm so we don’t give in and stay home easily — as long as our website is up, customers can keep placing orders so we do our darnedest to keep filling them and sending them off. For this reason we stayed open through three days of [Portland paralyzing] snow, closing only on Sunday after we were hit by freezing rain, making for some extra-dangerous driving (and walking!) conditions.
Don’t worry, though –we still got some work done, despite all the fun! On Monday we managed to get two days worth of packages out the door on schedule!
