Last week we featured our overstock of bow ties (many of which are still available, by the way), and this week’s were continuing the theme — sort of — by spotlighting our available stock of hair bows!

Like the bow ties, there were show-only items, and now that we’re done with shows, we have some leftovers we need to find good homes for. This is a perfect gift for a young geek girl, or a young-at-heart geek woman, and we’re letting them go for just $5 — a third of their original price (plus shipping, of course).

Here’s what we have left, so if you’d like one, contact me at veronica@storiedthreads.com and we’ll set up a private transaction via PayPal. If we have any given design with both metal and plastic headbands, please let me know which one you’d prefer, or we’ll pick at random. We’ll even throw in a random pin from our collection of overstock pins as a bonus gift!

This is first come, first served, and when we run out we won’t be replacing them, so act now!

  • One chibi Nick Fury (plastic headband)
  • Two SHIELD logo (plastic headbands)
  • Two Marvel logo (plastic headbands)
  • Two Firefly logo (plastic headbands)
  • Two Deadpool logo (metal headbands)
  • Three Marvel character heads (metal headbands)
  • Seven Star Trek engineering/security (four plastic, three metal headbands)
  • Eight Star Trek science (metal headbands)

This past weekend at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire was Time Travelers’ Weekend, which is always a blast for me.  There is tons of cosplay, costume contests, and I even get to help host and judge the Doctor Who contest on the last day, which is always a great deal of fun.

This year, though, Sunday somehow became Avengers Day among many of the vendors and crew, and it was amazing.  I have apparently started a bit of a trend, with my faire-appropriate cosplays!  This summer, the guy who runs the Hitting and Stabbing Emporium came to me, and explained that since two of his workers already had my Thor and Captain America surcoats, he wanted to make a theme day, and he commissioned from me a medieval Iron Man surcoat. I spread the word to another vendor friend who had commissioned a SHIELD surcoat earlier in the year, and figured the day would be perfect for debuting my new Loki cosplay.

And then things got really crazy.  Everybody at HSE wanted in, and on super short notice managed an impressive array of Marvel cosplays done in medieval and renaissance styles. I spotted Daredevil, Dark Phoenix, Magneto, Scarlet Witch, Enchantress, Black Widow, Lady Hydra, and so many more.

It’s always so fantastic to see an idea like this take off, and to see what creative things people can come up with. This coming weekend may not be an official cosplay weekend — but I still can’t wait to see the fantastic things people create!
