Muggles Market Spotlight: Mumswear

Welcome to another Muggles Market Spotlight for 2017! Today, we are delighted to announce the addition of new artisan Mumswear to our second annual Muggles’ Market at this year’s Geek Gala. Jean Richardson and her husband Rod took a few minutes to answer some questions about their business and general geekery.

  • What kinds of items will you be selling at this year’s Muggles Market?
    Mumswear creates unique one-of-a-kind shirts for gaming, comic, music, sci-fi and sports enthusiasts.
  • How did you first get started making these things?
    Our oldest son wore a special gamers shirt that Jean had made for him to Gen-Con in Indianapolis. Everyone he met asked him where he got it. He suggested we make them as a cottage industry. We have done about 10 conventions, shows and pop culture auctions.
  • What has been one of your favorite projects to work on?
    Indisputably, the Charlotte 2016 Mace-Con.
  • What else can you tell us about yourself?
    Well, we have been married for nearly 40 years, I have been a comic book fanatic since Chuck Xavier had hair. Jean is a highly skilled seamstress. She does the heavy lifting on the Mumswear shirts. Having run my own company, I handle promotions, PR and scheduling on the shows.
  • 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?
    I have always wanted to see Godzilla take on King Kong
