About

Bringing quality hadcrafted geekery to the masses.

I have been making my whole life, starting out with my best friend selling painted rocks at our local library and school fairs. The magic of finding out that people would give us money for things we made never really wore off :D I started face painting and making things for Christmas bazaars, always finding a new medium to work with for years.

In our teens we (in the beginning it was always my best friend/business partner and I, things are so much easier with a friend) started selling handcrafted circus equipment such as spinning poi, hula hoops and juggling balls. We found that the perfect outlet for selling things was in person at festivals and fairs, so we started opening a booth wherever we could! Costuming quickly became a popular thing to sell, from horns to wings to flower garlands, we loved to make it all, and succeeded!

When we discovered geeky conventions in 2005, it all came together in a beautiful way. I am a total geek, I read more then talk, I own an original Nintendo and geeky conventions are my favorite niche.

My best friend and partner has since moved to San Francisco in sunny California, and I have grown my own successful business selling handcrafted geeky accessories at conventions up and down the west coast of the U.S.A. It in incredibly hard work, but oh so worth it!

My Etsy shop is now my favorite new project and I spend ENDLESS hours tweaking things, making things clearer, working with customers...basically trying to make it the best experience possible for YOU! It is extremely rewarding to truly interact with people and make them happy, you will always be talking straight to me, the maker!

Keep an eye on my adventures, my glowing clip on cat ears are taking off and it is going to create a lot of rad opportunities for more stuff! Thank you all for helping this micro business SUCCEED!

Hello! Thank you so much for visiting my shop! I am a huge geek and have no problem going way too far with that, and you get to benefit from my obsessions! I am a maker and artist of many years and am a vendor at many nerdy events and conventions on the Pacific Northwest coast. Look for me at a comicon near you!

I am also obsessed with glowing thing and L.E.Ds are my spirit animal, so expect quite a bit of handmade glowing accessories.

Everything in my shop is handmade with extreme love and care and quality assurance.

I am currently trying very very hard to keep up with my online orders, but my shop is getting so popular it is occasionally overwhelming! I want you lovely people out in the wide world to be able to buy my stuff of you want to so I am slowly changing how I manage my large numbers of orders to be able to keep my online presence :) That said, I occasionally get overwhelmed with orders and have to take a shop vacation or take down certain products. Don't worry! They will be back.

I am always available to communicate and work with any question or difficulty, Keep in mind that I am human and it make take a day for me to get back to you ;)

I am finally able to work at expanding my online presence and have collected almost all of the social media accounts possible, so find me on your favorite one! I will be posting coupons and sales to my Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook. Find me by searching for GeekStar or GeekStarCostuming

Keep Calm and Geek On!
