Well, that title may be a bit melodramatic. It is sad though that our event season has come to a close. We won’t be traveling the wild roads of the Con Circuit until March of next year.
Not to worry though. We are not abandoning our favorite fellow fanatics of comics, sci-fi, pop culture, and all things geek. We’ve got something special in store.
For the next few months we will be turning our events page into a cosplay corner. We’ll have some neat tips and tricks to turn your ordinary stockings into some killer cosplay pieces. So keep an eye out. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve got in store.
The days have grown short, the Hunter’s Moon is waxing, and Halloween has arrived. What better way to celebrate than to deface a few squash?
We gathered 25 ripe pumpkins and carved them into an abundance of geeky, pop culture references. We had several from Doctor Who, and My Neighbor Totoro, and even one from the movie Labyrinth. We had cats, spiders, and crows. There were two Cthulhu and an alien Xenomorph. We also had one or two pumpkins that were impossible to explain.
Of course you can’t have a pumpkin party without pumpkin pie, so our good friends at Waves of Grain Bakery provided us with two mouth watering varieties.
Now we’re off to cavort in the night, seeking mischief, candy, and the company of fellow sock fanatics. Happy Halloween dreamers!
For those of you who do not know, we sponsored a fantastic cosplay contest in The Mary Sue‘s Geek Girl Headquarters at the New York Comic Con this past weekend. The time has finally come to pick the winners! Check out the finalists on The Mary Sue’s Twitter, or on their web page and cast your vote for your favorite. The choices are tough and the competition is fierce, so make your vote count.
The grand prize winner of the contest will get an amazing prize package from us including, socks, leg warmers, sock glue, the world’s best water bottle, stickers, buttons, not to mention a $50 gift card. Three runners up will also get gift cards.
If you missed out on the action and are itching to show off your socks in outfit related contests, don’t fret. We’ve got several competitions lined up in the coming months with our new Dreamer Dress Up feature. Just sign up for our newsletter and we’ll keep you posted on how you can be a winner too!
New York Comic Con is coming up quick and boy are we jealous of those of you who will be attending. There will be amazing guests, killer panels, fantastic cosplay, and…us! Now, while we won’t be there vending our wares, you’ll still get a chance to snag some sweet Sock Dreams stuff.
“How is this possible?” you may ask. Well, let me explain. NYCC is going to have an exciting new feature, hosted by TheMarySue.com. It’s called “Geek Girl HQ“, and we are going to be a part of it. This is a place where women can hang out, relax, and recharge. Recharge your cell phones, that is. There will be special appearances, musical performances, crafts, games, and a library corner. Just go to Room 1E02 in the Javits Center during the convention from October 9-12.
“What does any of this have to do with Sock Dreams?” Another very good question. Sock Dreams is sponsoring the Cosplay Contest! In Geek Girl HQ there will be a life sized frame next to a table full of props that you can use to either create a costume or augment your own. Snap a photo of yourself in the frame and tweet @TheMarySue #GGHQ to enter the contest.
“Did you say something about freebies?” Why, yes I did. Try $200 worth of sock dreams goodies. We are giving away a super Grand Prize Package to the winner of the contest. Here’s what it includes:
- 1 hand painted wooden treasure box
- 1 Sock Dreams Water Bottle in Silver
- 1 Pair of Long Cuffable Scrunchable Leg Warmers in Black
- 1 Pair of Extraordinary Striped Thigh Highs in Light Blue & Natural
- 1 Pair of Dreamy Knees in Twilight
- 1 bottle of It Stays! Body Adhesive
- 1 $50 Sock Dreams Gift Card
- 3 vintage Sock Dreams Stickers
- 3 vintage Sock Dreams Buttons
We are also giving away gift cards to three runners up. So if you are going to New York Comic Con, be sure to stop by Geek Girl HQ for your chance to win!
Its time for a little happy dance, because in just over a week we will be at our home town nerd fest, Rose City Comic Con! We couldn’t be more proud of sponsoring this event. In three short years RCCC has become one of the northwest’s top pop culture conventions. We can’t wait to see you there!
Stop by booth number 408 on Saturday September 20th and Sunday September 21st at the Oregon Convention Center to say hello. While you are there, you just might find the perfect socks to complete your cosplay. You may even find several socks to flesh out your fall and winter wardrobes. We’ll have plenty to choose from.
Need another reason to come see us at booth 408? Well, I recently found a stash of some of our vintage stickers and I am bringing them for you. This is your last chance to get your hands on these discontinued stickers. Be sure to show up early because we have a very limited supply.
Now, if you find that come Sunday evening, you’ve had so much fun that you wish the party could keep going, don’t despair. We are throwing a party especially for you! Bring your Rose City Comic Con badges to the Bossanova Ballroom from 8:00pm to midnight on Sunday September 21st, and get free admission to the Rose City Comic Con Wrap Party. Join us for music, dancing, and a cosplay fashion show featuring Sock Dreams socks. Check out or Facebook invite for details.
If you haven’t got your tickets to Rose City Comic Con, don’t wait! It is definitely something you won’t want to miss.
