Muggles Market Spotlight: Fantasy Bubbles

Welcome to another Muggles Market Spotlight for 2017! Today, we are delighted to announce the addition of new artisan Fantasy Bubbles to our second 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 kinds of items will you be selling at this year’s Muggles Market?
    Homemade bath and body products – Fun multi colored soaps, lotions, bubble baths, bath bombs, tooth powder, shampoo, conditioner, aromatherapy inhalers, and MORE!!
  • How did you first get started making these things?
    When my son was a baby, I wanted to turn bath time into a fun way to learn while getting clean. We did all kinds of themed baths, which led me to making bath products. I want to help make bath time less stressful for parents and more fun for children.
  • What has been one of your favorite projects to work on?
    Oh that’s a hard one.. I love to make soaps!! I love that I can play with the colors and scents for complete control over what goes on the body. Another favorite is to make bath bombs – the way they foam and float always makes me happy!
  • What else can you tell us about yourself?
    I’m 24 years old, with 2 amazing children. I work at home and love being able to stay with my children while I work a job I love. My family and I love Harry Potter, Dr. Who, Marvel, and my favorite character is Wolverine. My husband and I watch The Walking Dead as much as we can.
  • 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?
    A rock based alien looking thing that can absorb energy and use it for a shield or channel it into his fist. The alien came from outer space somewhere. Thought to be a meteor for 20 years. While in hibernation it became the hardest substance on earth.
  • And make plans to come visit them on Saturday, October 21st at this year’s Geek Gala
