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!
I cannot even believe we’re at the halfway point of the year. Time passes quickly when your socks are fun! June’s flower and birthstone are a great team—roses and pearls! The constellation for most of the month is Gemini, a perfect pairing for socks!
June’s actually got three birthstones associated with it, Alexandrite, Moonstone and Pearls. Both Alexandrite and Moonstone possess shifting colours that are impossible to capture in sock form, so I’ve made little gradients for you.
Alexandrite shifts from reddish to greenish.
Moonstones are pearlescent, glowing rainbows of green and blue, with purple and yellow on the edges. I actually super can’t convey the deepness of their colours and beauty, not even in socks.
Pearls are a little easier, with their beautiful, soft shades of white. Our O Lovelies in Pearl are a gimme as far as that gemstone is concerned! For the rest of your strand of socks, we’ve got lots of solid white with subtle shimmer and satin texture to dress up your look.
Clockwise from top: Micromesh Lace Ruffle Tanga Short, Opaque Stockings with Ruffle and Bow, Microfiber Chenille Arm Warmers, Simply Adjustable Sock Garters, Furry Lurex Leg Warmers, Alpaca Beehive Knit Long Arm Warmers.
But have you seen black pearls? They’re probably my favourite and they’ve got hints of blue and purple in them.
The lovely companion flower to pearls is the rose and we’ve got socks with that distinctive bloom emblazoned,
And there are shades of red and pink called “rose” that range the spectrum.
Now Gemini, the twins, is almost too easy to symbolise with socks. So let’s pair these pairs with two packs. Each of these styles come in sets of two, for you to mix and match or have a spare.
Pretty pearls, romantic roses and double your money with Gemini. We’re halfway through the year with Summer Solstice to prove it on the 21st!
May is a marvellous month, with Emeralds, Lily of the Valley and Taurus as its symbols. Bold, dainty and terribly stubborn; which is a pretty good description of how this month is turning out for us in Portland, with blasting hot days, delicately warm nights and a mind of its own regarding the weather!
All this sun and April’s showers have made our world bright and green (and brought some of those May flowers too!). Which makes May’s gemstone very appropriate. Emeralds are green beryl, ranging from yellow-green to blue-green, but always green! And though we use the word “emerald” on only a couple of green styles, we have quite a wide representation of greens!
May’s flower, the lily of the valley, is like the shy cousin of the flamboyant lilies that dominate bouquets and their little bell shapes could easily be confused for any other sleepy-looking wildflower. The fleur-de-lis, on the other hand, is very recognisable. So we’ll let this stylised lily take center stage.
Like Aries last month, the May’s constellation of Taurus isn’t as dignified in sock form as it is in star form. But dang is it adorable! Both of these cow socks even have grippy bottoms to help keep you stable.
