Thanks to everyone who came out to Hurricon 2014 and made this year another success =) We had a fantastic time and met lots of new friends. Here are some of our favorite costumes from the event; check out our photo album and Facebook for more!
The Witch’s Brew crew was at Megacon on Sunday, shopping and checking out cosplay =) Here are a few of our pictures. Got a cool Megacon photo gallery? Share it on the Witch’s Brew Facebook and we’ll check it out!
Here’s Ada’s latest work, a decoupage Harry Potter purse.
Check out closeups behind the cut. If you’re interested in commissioning any decoupage, send us a message on the Witch’s Brew Facebook! Decoupage starts at $10 and goes up depending on size & extras; a purse this size would be $30.
Hey all, we’re looking for anyone who may have witnessed some vandalism going on at the shop this month, particularly between October 28th and November 3rd. We came into the shop a couple weekends ago to find that several of our displays had been stolen/destroyed, as well as some belonging to our neighbors. Those responsible targeted displays featuring rainbows or gay pride symbols, and management at our market is apparently uninterested in taking any action about this. However, we’d love to take this to the police ourselves if we can find any witnesses.
So if you’ve seen anything suspicious around the shop (aside from the normal characters), please contact us.
Sunday night was the Trek Track party, with a concert by Voltaire! He was promoting his new album BiTrekual and played some songs from it – – can’t wait to hear the rest.
He showed off his new tribble…
He was kind enough to take a picture with us after the show =)
Garrett Wang (Harry Kim from Voyager) even showed up!
Had a ton of fun and stayed up way too late =) Tune in tomorrow for pics from Monday, including the last Emerald Rose concert of D*C 2012! (Check out our photo gallery for many more fantastic photos from Sunday.)
Sunday morning we obviously slept in, but we made it in time to see the Reading Rainbow panel with Levar Burton!
Bones and Nurse Chapel getting ready to head out. Chapel has all the drugs!
Had to get a picture of this jawsome shirt while we were waiting in line. (I need this shirt badly!)
Levar Burton was amazing. He’s been keeping Reading Rainbow going with a web presence and a new mobile app. (But you don’t have to take my word for it!) He’s still devoted to helping people learn and getting kids active and reading, and he’s very passionate about making the world a better place. So glad we made it in to this panel – – they had to turn a ton of people away =(
To be continued with photos from the Walking Dead panel. We leave you with tiny Avengers at the Peachtree Center! (Check out our photo gallery for many more fantastic photos from Sunday.)
Saturday night at Dragon*Con is for party-hopping! We got on our costumes (Avengers-inspired rave outfits) and headed from hotel to hotel to see what was going on. Got some more great costume photos.
Capsicle and the Brodinson took a break at the Sheraton to play some checkers…
And on our way to the next party we spotted this Rainbow Brite group!
To be continued with more costume photos from the Pulse Bar and the DJ Nemesis rave! (And check out our photo gallery for many more fantastic photos from Saturday.)
Friday night we headed over to the Apocalypto Disco, which was a great party. Whole lotta drinking, and a whole lotta dorks doing the YMCA. And, of course, amazing costumes!
Strawberry Shortcake group!
AAAAAH. SUBJECT IS WEARING TUXEDO AND THE TV IS GOING FUZZY. ATTEMPTING TO FLANK.
Party Rock was, in fact, in the house. Everybody had a good time.
After the Disco we went to the “What’s New With Troma” panel and saw some hilarious behind-the-scenes footage from their latest project. Troma people are the best. Drunk Leia met drunk Boba Fett.
SUPPORT TRULY INDEPENDENT FILM!
To be continued with pictures from Saturday! (And check out our photo gallery for many more fantastic photos from Friday.)
Okay, truthfully, after getting to bed so late our Friday didn’t start till closer to noon. We got on our Star Wars outfits and headed downstairs to greet the con. Jynxie as Princess Leia, Ada as Han Solo, and Fox as a foxy Jedi ^_^
First thing, we met R2-D2 on the elevator going downstairs!
Saw more awesome costumes on the way to the Nichelle Nichols panel, like…
Seneca! Sorry ’bout those berries, man…
Some kid in line tried to start a fight with us for wearing Star Wars costumes to a Star Trek panel, but it did no good – – we’re pretty devoted to Star Trek AND Star Wars at the Witch’s Brew, and we don’t see any reason we can’t all just coexist. Luckily the rest of the Trekkies felt the same way. (It was tempting to ask why, if that kid liked Star Trek so much more, we were way ahead of them in line, but that seemed un-called for 😉 )
To be continued! (And check out our photo gallery for many more fantastic photos from Friday.)
