GeekGirlCon 2014 sold out both days of the show, and the exhibition hall was bustling with geeks of all ages. The show floor was filled with dozens of unique vendors, and here are just some of the few that really stood out for their wonderful wares.
Friday Afternoon Teas
GeekMoms Cathé and Corrina both raved about Friday Afternoon Teas when I chatted with them at the convention, so of course I had to make the booth my first stop.
The one-of-a-kind loose leaf tea blends are inspired by a variety of fandoms, including Firefly, Dungeons and Dragons, Harry Potter (the Slytherin blend sold out quickly both days), and more. Keep an eye on GeekMom for a full review soon!
The nail polish is formaldehyde-free, which makes me feel good about putting it on my 5-year-old’s nails. I picked up a glow-in-the-dark polish (in the middle of the photo above) that I absolutely adore.
Lucky 13 Lacquer
There were more dazzling, glittery nail polishes to be found at the Lucky 13 Lacquer booth on the GeekGirlCon show floor.
Lucky 13 Lacquer isn’t shy with the glitter, which my daughter and I are fond of, so I had to pick up their special GeekGirlCon glitter polish. Not only are the red, gold, and blue flecks a great reminder of a fun-filled weekend, they also go great with my Carol Corps T-shirt.
Digital Soaps are so darn cute and eerily accurate—I actually had to look twice at the SNES cartridge soaps to make sure they weren’t real games.
My 5-year-old and I have had a longstanding battle about washing her hands, but now that she has a Pokéball soap with a Pokémon hiding inside, she can’t wait to run to the sink. (And they assured me that the soap is gentle for her skin.) Thank you, Cleangeeks.
The incredibly cuddly creations from Dorklandia are just begging to be snuggled. If you can’t get a real kitten, these fuzzy toys might just be the next best thing.
