Muggles Market Spotlight: Fantasy Bubbles

Welcome to another Muggles Market Spotlight for 2018! Today, we are delighted to announce the return of Fantasy Bubbles to our third annual Muggles Market at this year’s Geek Gala. Carol Peninger 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 handcrafted soaps, bath bombs, and bubble doughs, (to help you relax after cosplaying all day), lip balms to moisturize your lips (We all know how drying cosplay lipstick can be.), and facial cleansing oil (Really helps break down your make up, making for easy removal at the end of the day).
  • What was one of your favorite things from the Muggles Market or Geek Gala last year?
    We love seeing everyone who cosplays, and really being with people we understand. It’s like a huge family gathering, plus the Geek Gala party is AMAZING!!
  • What is something on your ‘bucket list’ you would like to do or try?
    My husband and I never got a Honeymoon so we would love to go to Greece for one.
  • Who is someone that has been inspirational for you or mentored you in your craft?
    Greek mythology is a huge part of my life. I love the stories and history. We use a lot of the history in our product making. My children also inspire me to keep going, and they love being my little product testers.
  • 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?
    If I could change one thing about my body to be part cyborg I would change my right hand. I had surgery on it and now I can’t straighten it out all the way. Plus how cool would it look?? Side note my partner in crime (sister) really is part cyborg her has metal plates and screws in her left arm 😉
  • And make plans to come visit them on Saturday, November 3 at this year’s Geek Gala
