Muggles Market Spotlight: Designed by Laura !

Welcome to another Muggles Market Spotlight for 2017! Today, we are delighted to announce the return of Designed by Laura to our second annual Muggles’ Market at this year’s Geek Gala. Laura Stinson took a few minutes to answer some questions about her business and general geekery.

  • What was one of your favorite parts of last year’s Muggles Market? 
    I loved meeting people who are into the same things I am. It was very cool to be able to play up my nerdy personality and pay homage to the things I love in my work.
  • What types of items do you plan to bring this year?
    I’ll have much of the same stuff as I did last year: original fantasy art prints, handpainted gifts and decor, etc. – plus a few new things!
  • Are you bringing any new kinds of things that we might not have seen last year?
    This year I’ve gotten into polymer clay sculpting. I’ve been making pendants and figurines, including upcycling glass jars into fairy house candle holders!
  • What else can you tell us about yourself?
    I call myself a PotterWhoCoat, so expect to see a lot of Harry Potter, Doctor Who, and Firefly themed items. I also recently expanded my business to two branches, one of which is my artwork. That branch is officially FairyNerdy by Designed by Laura, which should give you a hint as to some of the other themes you might see in my work.
  • So this year’s Geek Gala pays homage to Godzilla movies – if you were to create a Godzilla movie today – what type of nemesis do you think he should fight against?
    Godzilla is a bit outside my wheelhouse, but why not the Doctor from Doctor Who? The Doctor will defeat Godzilla AND save him!
  • And make plans to come visit them on Saturday, October 21st at this year’s Geek Gala!
