Well, we’ve traveled far and wide to share our dream of warm, fashionable feet across the country. While we were expecting to sell a lot of socks, we were surprised to find ourselves on an epic adventure to strange and wondrous lands.
We began our journey in the Emerald City, where not only did we run into Dorothy Gale, but also Malcolm Reynolds, Rocket Raccoon, and The Doctor. From there we hitched a ride on a tornado, and though we didn’t make it to Kansas, we did find ourselves in the Windy City. While there we were accosted by a rogue Dalek. Not to worry, we were rescued by Ramona Flowers, and surprisingly, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. From there we were whisked away to a land that stood a Mile High. We got a proper welcome from Peter Pan, a pair of friends from Monster High, and a wizard named Odin.
Our next stop was on a beautiful harbor in the City of Champions. The city lived up to its name as we ran into a number of heroes for the League of Legends. We befriended a playful dragon who took us to The Athens of the South. It also seemed to be a popular spot with vacationing students from Hogwarts. At last we made our way home, only to discover that we had landed in an alternate dimension. One in which the Rose City was overtaken by helpful droids.
We finally found ourselves back in the Emerald City and from there it was only a short jump back to our home land. We will rest up for now, but early next year we will be back for more amazing adventures. Stay tuned to find out when and where you can be a part of the dream!
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!
This year’s Dragon Con was the busiest event of the season! This meant that not only were we able to share our socks with a whole new group of stocking enthusiasts, we also got to meet an exceptional number of Sock Dreams fanatics. Here are just a few of the smiling faces that came by to show off their sock inclusive cosplays.
No anime or comic book convention would be complete with out heroes. Katie completed her Kate Bishop (aka. Hawkeye) cosplay with a comfy pair of Extraordinarily Longer Striped Thigh Highs in black and plum. Trish favored the grey Long Cuffable Scrunchables for her depiction of Beth from the animated web series Bravest Warriors.
Of course you can’t have a hero without a proper villain or two. Nicole made great use of our black and kelly Vertically Inclined Stockings in her feminine rendition of Loki, Thor’s mischievous sibling. We also met Michael, portraying a young Dr. Horrible. The only person who loved him more than we did was his mom Lori, who has always been his first and biggest fan. She rocked her look with our Extraordinarily Longer Striped Thigh Highs in steel and light blue.
Coming all the way from Hogwarts were three alumni from the world’s most famous school of witchcraft and wizardry. Both Kara and Jessica were sorted into Gryffindor. Jessica was exuberant about her dark red and gold Sorcerer Socks. Kara chose to show off her Gryffindor pride with the dark red and gold Super Stripe Knee Highs. Heather, a Ravenclaw, gave her dark blue and silver Sorcerer Socks an enthusiastic thumbs up.
Finally we spotted a couple of characters from an enchanted forest. Diane was a sweet fairy who adored her Oregon Dreamy Knees. We caught Rhica prowling around as Little Red Riding Wolf. Her Extraordinary Striped Thigh Highs in black and natural were just the thing she needed to complete this fun mashup.
Our next event is Rose City Comic Con here in our hometown of Portland Oregon. We’ll be at the Portland Convention Center on September 19th and 20th. Be sure to visit us at booth 408 to take advantage of our special deals and to grab our latest con exclusive sticker, like our new little fan Ciaran.
Not long ago, in a forest just outside the city of Portland, a dragon awakened from his century long rest. The two headed beast bellowed and thrashed through the forest beyond the city walls. The people of Portland were frightened and the guard gathered their weapons. “Stop!” came a commanding cry. A collective gasp ran through the crowd as they turned to discover the legendary Sock Dreamers in their midst. “Go back to your homes,” Dreamer Rae called. “Put away your swords,” said Dreamer Nina. “We’ll subdue the dragon,” said Dreamer Rose. The townsfolk stared with open jaws as the maidens strode through the gate.
It was not long before the Dreamers found the dragon stomping grumpily through the forest. Cautiously the sisters approached the dragon. Knowing that after such a long slumber the dragon would be hungry, they lifted their offering of chocolate cupcakes. The dragon paused its raging. The creature’s two heads slowly sniffed the cakes. Liking what he smelled he gobbled down the tasty treats.
Once his hunger had been sated, the dragon let out another roar. Placing a soothing hand on the dragon’s wing Rose felt him shiver. “He’s cold,” she said. “I have just the thing,” Rae replied. As Nina hugged the dragon, Rae helped him into a pair of Extraordinarily Longer Radiant Rainbow socks. The socks were so long, and the stretch was so great, that the dragon was cozy and warm in no time.
With the dragon at last comfortable, the three Dreamers knew there was only one thing left to do. Far to the East, in the city of Atlanta, in the kingdom of Georgia, a great gathering of dragons was due to take place. It was the duty of the Dreamers to bring the creature to the gathering, know as Dragon Con. Rae consulted her map and then the Dreamers climbed onto the dragon’s back. He flapped his wings and took to the sky, heading East. On September 4th, when the half moon sets, the Dreamers will arrive at Dragon Con. Follow the map to join them there and get warm and cozy socks of your very own.
