Konnichiwa, Sock Dreams fans!
For our second event of the season, we head back up to Seattle for the Pacific Northwest’s largest anime convention, Sakura Con!
The definition of sakura is cherry blossom, which seems completely appropriate, as the cherry trees in Oregon and Washington are going crazy with blossoms right now. Spring is in the air, and we are ready to celebrate with cosplay, characters, and all the socks one would need for both.
We have a HUGE following in the anime community, as we have a wide array of stripey socks to match your character. M Stripes, Extraordinary Stripes, Super Stripes, Dreamy Knees, N Stripes, striped tights, knee highs, over-the-knees, and thigh highs will all be on display and on sale for you to see up close and in person, along with petticoats, garter belts, and every cosplayer’s most trusted item: the It Stays Body Adhesive. As per usual, we will have special event prices on all of our Dreams Stockings and Dreamer Socks, plus a variety of stickers from our collection.
On a daily basis, we receive emails, tweets, Facebook posts, and Tumblr requests seeking sock guidance for various anime characters; we are always pleased to oblige. Speaking of our Social Media team, we will be running a promotion through all our various social media for Sakura Con, so stay tuned for more details.
Events season 2013 kicks off with a visit to the Emerald City. No, not the one in the Wizard of Oz books! This is the name that has affectionately been given to the lovely city of Seattle. We are stoked to be vending at Emerald City Comic Con this year! Not only will there be insane-o celebrity guests, such as Carrie Fisher, Gillian Anderson, Felicia Day, Wil Wheaton, both Adam West and Burt Ward, Christopher Lloyd, Sir Patrick Stewart AND my personal favorite: Mr. Billy Dee Williams.
There will also be several major comic book writers and artists at this event, plus tons of celebrity voice actors. ECCC has been going strong since it was founded in 2003 by Jim Demonakos, and its attendance has skyrocketed, with last year’s attendance being 53,000 geeks, nerds, and other lovers of pop culture. That’s a LOT of socks!!! We will be bringing several of the Dreamer Socks and DreaM Stockings, including our newest styles like the Dreamer Diamond Waves and the Dreamer Tartan OTKs, as well as some of the classics you know and love, all at our special event prices. We will also be bringing several event-only products that feature some of our favorite Marvel and DC heroes… If you’re going to be at Emerald City (March 1st-3rd), come on by Booth 102 to sign up for discount codes and grab one of our new Geek Girl stickers. Hope to see you there!!!
Greetings Sock Dreams fans! We’re about to head up to Seattle for our last big event presence of 2012 and it’s going to be a doozy! November 2nd, 3rd and 4th we will be vending our fabulous wares at the Pacific North West’s own educational Burlesque convention, BurlyCon.
What makes BurlyCon different from other Burlesque festivals and conventions? The BurlyCon web site describes the event:
Burlycon is a community-oriented professional growth and educational convention for Burlesque performers, fans, and aficionados. BurlyCon will offer classes, workshops, panels, a vendor fair, and social events. BurlyCon is committed to providing an affordable opportunity for performers of all levels to learn, grow, and wwwelop their skills. BurlyCon is focused entirely on community building, educational and social events. There are NO Burlesque shows or performances! There is no contest, and no performance showcase.
With classes ranging from basic bump and grind to fan dancing to managing a burlesque company, there is no doubt this will be a wonderfully educational weekend for all involved!
Sock Dreams is not only vending at the event, but we are one of the sponsors and as such we were able to provide an advertisement for the event.
We were lucky enough to get the help of local Burlesque performer (and one of my favorites) the lovely Infamous Nina Nightshade. Nina works with several Burlesque groups in the Portland area, one of them being Critical Hit Burlesque another partner member of the Portland Geek Council, and she was very excited to help us out.
In Burlesque, the performers use the word peel to describe the action of slowly removing items; we will be bringing all the items that are ripe to peel. Along with our dreamiest Dream Stockings, lovely lacy items, sock garters and belts, as well as tights and other fun accoutrements.
If you are interested in attending this event, registration is still available on their web site. Come shake a tail feather with us!
