Happy Monday, everyone! Hope it’s warmer where you are, because we’re dealing with single-digit temps and a generous layer of snow.

I wanted to remind everyone that we will be retiring several of our designs at the end of the month, so if you’d like to grab one while we still have them, you have about three weeks left to do so. After that, the items will be removed from our website and Etsy shops forever. All items listed are patches unless otherwise specifically noted.

Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a great weekend and you’re ready to hit the ground running for 2017!

We know we’re ready to go, and the first thing we’re doing is a little spring cleaning (metaphorically, of course) within our line of products. Twice a year we look at our sales figures and decide whether to retire items that no longer sell well, and today we’re announcing the retirement of several patch and accessory designs.

You’ll notice a lot of our pop culture-inspired items are on this list. This is part of our ongoing effort to move away from fan art-type products and focus on properties in the public domain and wholly original designs, such as our Geek Merit Badge line, and in the coming months we plan to continue whittling away at these sections of our website.

But for now, here is a comprehensive list of items we will be retiring at the end of the month, so if you see anything here you’d like to buy, you have until January 31 to do so. After that, the items will be removed from our website and Etsy shops forever. All items listed are patches unless otherwise specifically noted.

Yep, it’s that time of year again, when we take the lazy way out and regale you with an end-of-the-year countdown lisitcle kind of thing. But let’s be honest; you’re probably too geared up for your New Year’s Eve festivities to put much effort into reading anything, so it benefits both of us.

So here we go, the top items of 2016!

PATCHES

  1. TerrifiCon_PawneeGoddessPawnee Goddess. For the second year in a row, a late-year surge in sales for Halloween pushed this patch to the top of our best-seller list. We made more than 100 of these patches this year!
  2. X-Files: I Want to Believe. Our longtime number one best-seller continues to do well and has a lock on the number two slot.
  3. Plague Survivor Geek Merit Badge. Another longtime top seller, which this year barely eked out its spot at number three over another Geek Merit Badge…
  4. Final Girl Geek Merit Badge. This design got a big boost after it was featured in an article online (sorry, I can’t find it again to re-post the link). It was a top ten seller last year and barely missed the number three position by one sale. Maybe next year!
  5. Though She Be But Little, She Is Fierce. Another past top ten seller making it into the top five! I’m always thrilled when someone buys a Shakespeare patch.

In the interest of efficiency, I’ll just spotlight the top items across my non-patch catalog of items.

Away Team Science Small 1The best-selling bag of 2016 is the blue Science version of our Star Trek-inspired Away Team bags. These were always the best selling bags at shows and we hope the love for them continues in 2017, our first year as a strictly online business.

Our top scarf design was the Harley Quinn-inspired harlequin scarf. Our best-selling necktie design featured the anti-demonic possession tattoo from Supernatural — which, I will note, will soon be retired as a design, so if you want to get one, go order one now! And our top embroidered bookmark was inspired by the greatest stage direction of all time, from Shakespeare’s A Winter’s Tale, “Exit, Pursued by a Bear.”

Our winter hiatus is nearly over, which means it’s nearly time to break out the cosplays! I tend to go fairly cosplay light at conventions, it’s true – somehow vending at a con while in costume feels more difficulty. But I do cosplay on occasion. And, of course, every day at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire involves some kind of costuming.

 

One of my favorite cosplays is my Tenth Doctor outfit. Like so many of my costumes, it was designed with the Faire in mind. As a vendor there, I have certain standards of dress that I must adhere to, and clearly modern clothes are out of the question. With this one, I went with some later period influences, including the cravat, and jacket with lapels to mimic the feel of Ten’s iconic pinsriped suit.

This spring, I’ll also have Kate back in the booth with me, which is always fantastic. Kate and I first started working together before I even had a business of my own, when she was my assistant costumer for Pastimes Entertainment. This means that she’s a fabulous seamstress in her own right, and always looks fabulous, whether we’re in regular garb or a team cosplay, like these medieval Harley Quinn and Two-Face outfits from last fall.

It’s far too early yet for me to know what I’ll be wearing to the Faire this year – except for Memorial Day Weekend, also known as Wizards Weekend, during which you’d better believe I’ll be showing my Ravenclaw pride.

What awesome cosplays will you be breaking out this year?

Marauders Map JeffWinter has finally arrived here in New England, and that has us wanting to bundle up in as many layers as we can. With that in mind, it seemed like a good time to show off some of our more ambitious scarf designs. While many of our scarves feature a single embroidery at the end, there are a few that are a bit more complex.

Marauder’s Map Scarf

This scarf, for instance, is embroidered at one end with the words that activate the Marauder’s Map – “I solemly swear I am up to no good” – and at the other end, the words that close it – “Mischief Managed”. Between the two, the scarf is embroidered for its entire length with footsteps showing the troublemaker’s path through the halls of Hogwarts.

DrNameInfinityDoctor’s Name Infinity Scarf

Most of our scarves are done in the standard style, a long lenght of flannel that one can wrap around their neck with the ends hanging down.  Occasionally, though, a design works well in another style — the infinity scarf. Sewn into a loop of fabric, the infinity scarf can be worn in a variety of ways both for warmth, or as a fashion accessory.

WinterSoldier1The Winter Scarf

This scarf, made in honor of cryogenically frozen soldiers-turned-assassins everywhere is embroidered at one end with a red star. Once it has been assembled, it is embroidred down its entire length with the kind of black geometric lines found on the Winter Soldier’s arm, so that they show on both sides of the scarf.

Harley Quinn Scarf

Finally, we come to our Harley Quinn Scarf. Not only is it stitched on both ends with a trio of diamonds, but unlike our other scarves, it’s constructed of two colors of flannel, giving it a unique red and black color scheme unlike any of our other designs.

Harley QuinnOf course, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to scarves that we make. Visit our website to see the whole selection!
