Muggles Market Spotlight: E.B. Spider

Welcome to another Muggles Market Spotlight for 2018! Today, we are delighted to announce the return of E.B. Spider to our third annual Muggles Market at this year’s Geek Gala. Brandy Shope took a few minutes to answer some questions about her business and general geekery.

  • What items are you bringing to the Muggles Market this year? 
    I will have NEW adoptable critters/pets/plushies (dragons and Potter inspired creatures), wearable Stone Gauntlets, and new “Karp” purses. I will possibly have fairy wings too, if all goes according to plan.
  • What was one of your favorite things from the Muggles Market or Geek Gala last year?
    The crowd was amazing! I loved seeing how excited people were. I loved seeing all the cosplay too! There was a Hedwig cosplay that I completely geeked out over.
  • What is something on your ‘bucket list’ you would like to do or try?
  • Who is someone that has been inspirational for you or mentored you in your craft?
    My aunt taught me to crochet when I was 6. I made a small baby doll blanket. I still have it too! I didn’t really crochet again until I was 19, but my aunt and I always did some sort of craft. I think she really brought my creativity “out to play” and showed me I could try anything creative.
  • So this year’s Geek Gala theme is “Gears and Ghouls”, and focuses on steampunk and day of the dead cosplay. If you could have one body part cybernetically enhanced or replaced, what would you choose, how would you want it changed, and why?
    My legs. I want to be fast and be a runner but my legs just won’t keep up. Shin Splints are no joke!

  • And make plans to come visit them on Saturday, November 3 at this year’s Geek Gala
