November 1st-3rd is Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo! Are you heading to the convention? Do you like geek fashion? Come to our Geek Fashion Show at the Comikaze Expo! The über talented Lauren Majestic of Castle Corsetry invited me to be a part of the show and I couldn’t be more excited. I will be walking the runway in a skirt from one of my favorite Etsy shops, Go Follow Rabbits! The show will celebrate independent fashion designers who are geeks just like us! It’s going to be a lot of fun and I have a feeling I’m going to want every outfit that walks down the runway.
GEEK FASHION SHOW at COMIKAZE EXPO
WHEN: Friday, November 1st

ABOUT THE SHOW: Some very talented designers are going to be showcasing their original looks during the first ever Geek Fashion Show at Comikaze, sponsored by Espionage Cosmetics (Booth #1133) and Castle Corsetry (Booth #731). This event will feature beautiful models and fantastic fashions, including Adrianne Curry (America’s Next Top Model) as our hostess.

I can’t believe 2012 is almost over! Wowzers. The past few months have been a bit of a blur for me. My sketch group DWG Comedy put out our first music video. I also came down with the flu…TWICE! But in between all the madness, I finally launched my Etsy shop. Over the years people have asked me if I sell my handmade accessories, so now I can proudly say yes, I do! The name of my shop is Rockets and Rainbows.
