We clicked our heels three times and have finally made it home from Emerald City Comic Con. While there is definitely no place like home, we have to admit that ECCC was an amazing adventure. The best part about it though, was getting to meet some of you. We were impressed with the way you tied some of our favorite socks into your incredible cosplays, including Shannon’s very fitting Dorothy Gale. She used a pair of Four Button Ribbed Leg Warmers in ivory for her steam punk spin on this classic character.
Aireeka was the first to stop by our booth and show off her costume socks. She completed her rad Rocket Raccoon cosplay with our N Stripes in orange and red. Sarah couldn’t wait to show us how she utilized the Purple Knees she had bought from us the day before. Here she is as Clawdeen Wolf with her Monster High classmate, Frankie Stein, as portrayed by friend Merce.
What comic con would be complete without a visit from The Doctor? Fortunately we didn’t have to find out when Whitney showed up as the 11th version of this enigmatic traveler from Gallifrey. Her Constellation Knee Highs from Sock It To Me added a spacey touch to this feminine take on the role. And speaking of feminine takes, we also loved this girlish approach to Firefly’s Captain Malcolm Reynolds. Kayln used our Extraordinary Thigh Highs in olive green for her sassy ensemble.
Another thing that we loved about our adventure in Emerald City was getting to meet other exhibitors. Our next door neighbor and borrower and lender of scissors was the talented James Ramos. James is an artist, illustrator, game designer, and philanthropist. His heroes include Walt Disney, Charles Schulz, and Chuck Jones. We also, literally, bumped into Christopher Stuart Wilson, a painter and self proclaimed ninja. He is an award winning artist who strives to, in his words, “bridge the canyon gap between the real and the abstract.” We were particularly taken with his Mona-Mystique painting.
Eventually all adventures come to an end. Fortunately we are gearing up for a new one at Chicago’s C2E2. If you want to be a part of our next incredible journey, meet us there at Booth 781!
Now that Spring is here, we’re getting more adventurous in experimenting with these hand-crafted foot adornments, and wanted to share some of our results with you! The thing we first loved about these is that they fit into the same wardrobe niche which has been filled by a whole lot of no-shows in recent years. Now, we do understand the appeal of a low-coverage sock in summer, but something about trying to look like you’re not wearing socks at all seems just a little sacrilegious to some of us. What’s great about FOTSIE Wraps is that while they work with most of the outfits that one would wear no-shows with, they are visible, and add a great embellishment to your shoes, while being a light-weight whisper of fabric that lets your feet breathe in hot weather.
Do you prefer to dream discreetly?
An example of a discreet domestic shipping label.
If you are like us, you’ve spent hours browsing the website. You’ve gotten lost in the colors, the patterns, and textures. You’ve daydreamed about ways to layer and outfits to wear. But sometime, don’t you want to be able to pick up the socks and hold them in your hands? Wouldn’t you love to run your fingers over those textures and see the colors with your own eyes? Well, your chance is coming, because we are taking our socks on the road! Over the next eight months we will be traveling far and wide to bring our socks to some of the biggest comic book and pop culture events in the United States.
Not only will these events be the perfect time to see our products in person, but it’s your chance to take home some convention exclusives. As always, we will be bringing one of our collectible stickers in a brand new design. This one is a tribute to a favorite animated character. We love her sassy attitude and flawed, yet multifaceted nature. Even if her boyfriend is a real joker. Stop by our booth and get one for free!
In the same vein, we have also created a pair of socks inspired by this quirky character. These socks, like this woman, are truly extraordinary. They are super long and stretchy, expanding up to 24 inches in the calf and up to 27 inches in the cuff! If cosplaying is one of your passions, and you are thinking of dressing as a semi-psychotic trickster, than these will be a perfect fit.
