Sock Dreams Blogs
To go along with our beautiful new layout, and our most recent newsletter, we are so pleased to bring you our latest sticker design! Our logo fairy likes to hide among Spring flowers, and never matches her socks–here she has on two different Dreamy Knees in Peacock and Seaside. If you’d like to take home a Sock Dreams fairy of your very own, just politely invite her in your Order Notes. To keep your little winged lady happy, make sure to place her near something floral and leave gifts of bread and honey in your garden.
Green seemed like the natural choice to focus on for March. I pointed out last year that even though St. Patrick’s day has been associated with a lot more colours than green, the combo of impending spring and popular holiday means that March means a tide of green! Grabbing samples to look at with you for this post was like bringing warmer weather and hikes in the forest into my cubicle.
Disclaimer time! I’m not trying to define green. If you want some poem-like lists of names for shades of red, both Wikipedia and the Color Sorting Wiki are kind of amazing resources. I’ve done my best to accurately represent these hues in relation to each other, so you can gather a good idea of what matches and what doesn’t.
I did find, while sorting through all these delicious, verdant hues, that green appears to fall into five different sub-groups, flavour-wise. It’s not a very scientific classification system, but ooh it is delightful!
But more on that later! First, let’s look at how each supplier does the outcome of yellow+blue.
DreaM Stockings & Dreamer Socks
We really run the gamut for this hue, from deep to pastel-bright, with a stop at crayon-colour clarity there in the middle!
Not a lot of greens, but they’re one of the few folks who offer a lime! Which is hilarious next to their otherwise subdued greens.
Another “not a lot, but lime!” selection.
They call their green “Kelly” and that’s what it is! There’s a neon green too, but it’s so neon it can’t really be included here. They use the same green whether it’s in their Striped Tights (on the left) or Striped Thigh Highs (on the right).
SO. MANY. GREENS! Each of their main styles offers at least two greens, it’s a lush landscape over here.
Top row, from left to right: Harajuku Scrunchy Sock (Kelly), Harajuku Scrunchy Sock (Green Tea), Harajuku Leg Warmer (Mint), Harajuku Leg Warmer (Moss Green), Harajuku Arm Warmers (top down: Green Tea, Olive, Emerald Green)
Bottom Row, from left to right: Color Tights in Dark Green, Olive, Pear, Mint
Some brands only have one good representative green, and here they are!
Now let’s look at the quirks and sub-groups of green, after the jump!
It’s that time again Sock Dreams fans! Time for Dreamer Jen to pack up all the dreamiest socks and hit the road with her lovely assistant, Dreamer Rose, to spread the love of Sock Dreams. We have a very busy con season this year, and nearly ALL the cons we’re attending are out of our home state of Oregon.
To kick off this year’s events, we are attending Planet Comic Con, a comic and pop culture convention that takes place in Kansas City, MO on March 14-16. The main attraction of this event is a big Star Trek: The Next Generation reunion, at a special panel called Trek-Tacular! In honor of their appearance, we have made up some very specially themed stickers that will be available at booth #225.
After Planet Comic Con ends, we’re back for a week and then we’ll be heading up to Seattle, March 28th-30th, for our second year at Emerald City Comic Con. This year we’ll have a bigger booth, more socks, new con-exclusive stickers, AND potentially some new swag… We’ve also been working directly with the creators of ECCC to get them special Emerald City logo socks, which they will be selling at their merch booth. Stop by booth #202 and check us out!
There will be a bunch more events coming up through the rest of spring and into summer. If you live in Kansas City or Seattle, stop by and see us! If you know about a convention in your area that you’d like to see us at, let us know!
