Dreamer Jen is all packed up and on her way back to us after a long, fun weekend in LA! Comikaze Expo was some serious (and fun!) business – there were more people and more celebrities wandering the expo than we’re used to seeing at conventions in the Northwest, making for the kind of glamorous gathering one expects in LA! Jen had the extreme pleasure of sighting the one and only Stan Lee, and very nearly got a chance to see Ru Paul as well!
It wasn’t the celebrities that made this expo a hit, though — Jen reports that she got to introduce more new people to our socks than ever before! There’s nothing quite like seeing a person’s eyes light up upon finding thigh highs that fit for the first time in their life!
This weekend Dreamer Jen is bringing a curated selection of only our most fabulously geeky socks for Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo in LA! Folks attending the Expo can stop by booth number 1516 to check out the selection, and even get a Sock Dreams giftcard while supplies last – just ask nicely!
Even if you don’t make it in time to get a giftcard, you can still pick up one of our special edition super hero logo stickers, lovingly designed by Dreamer Zaffie. We’ve also got a very limited number here at our headquarters, so if you can’t make the Expo, you can still get one with your online order if you act quickly! Just leave an order note requesting a sticker, and tell us who your favorite super hero is!
We wish you all a SUPER weekend, and look forward to seeing your faces in LA!
It’s cold outside, and a lot of us Dreamers have given up our razors for the winter (those of us who use them, anyway). Conveniently, this month is also the start of No-Shave-November “Noshember”, a fun challenge of setting down that razor and seeing what happens. Noshember is about folks “[uniting] in the height of laziness agreeing to not shave their beards or legs.”
And it’s not just about making things easier during one of the busiest times of year! The various No-Shave-November groups are also involved with charities, which is a great incentive for getting past those first painfully stubbly days.
If you’re focusing on the face and want to coordinate your socks with your new look (or if you can’t grow good face hair but want to have ‘stache solidarity), then we have some marvellous moustache options for you!
And larger feet can fit into the Mustache Tights too! Our be-stached knee high options (with and without argyle) only fit up to a US women’s shoe size 11 and men’s size 9, though (but they’re pretty perfect for smaller feet, perfectly fitting down to a US women’s size 6!).
Okay top halves covered, but what about options that won’t clash with incoming leg hair? Socks, especially our thick and cozy house brands, pretty much always do a great job covering leg hair, but what about if you want something dressier or nylon?
Our Opaque section offers styles in varying levels of opacity that all do a pretty solid job of hiding leg hair (though, from experience, any lighter colour over darker leg hair will never be perfect!). Bonus: most opaque styles are going to be warmer, which is perfect for all that incoming winter weather!
Probably everyone’s favourite legginga (and remember one of the differences between Leggings and Footless Tights is opacity) are the Thermo Fleece Lined Footless Tight (so cozy!), the Black Velvet Legging (so fancy!) and Nouvella’s Cotton Legging or Capri (the best basic!).
But what about tights—and something fancier, or more office-y? In solids, both the Color Tights and Opaque Tights are awesome and come in a million colours and the Erika Microfiber Tights are magic, because they’re the only microfiber cotton we’ve encountered. Seriously, they are the best.
And don’t think you’re stuck without stockings if you don’t want to shave, because there are plenty of thigh high options! The Lycra Cuban Heeled Two-Tone Stockings are a wonderful winter option to the traditional sheer Cuban heel, and the Solid Thigh High Stockings are just a great basic all around.
So do you stop shaving this time of year, for a cause or for yourself?
This summer we went to the drive-in, but it’s too cold to do that in the autumn. Now’s the time of year for sitting in the dark and getting your scare on! Even though Halloween is still practically a week away, this is the big weekend before the holiday, a perfect day to premiere the latest on the silver screen.
Ooh, we took too long in the concession line! We missed the previews, but it doesn’t look like we missed any of the story . . . (And if you’re curious who any of the “actors” are, just click the links!)
Those stairs do not look like good business.
TOLD. YOU. Those are guts, he stepped in guts.
Wait, he’s still going up the stairs? To the ominous red door.
Come ON, he’s opening the door? Yes, that is a way to get straight up unravelled, Mr. Sock.

OH MY SOCKS A MUMMY.
HOLY STOCKINGS SKELETONNNNN!!
