Welcome to Muggles Market Monday! Each week we are spotlighting one of the artisans scheduled to appear at our brand new Muggles’ Market at this year’s Geek Gala. This week’s featured artisan is Ms. Andry’s Bath House! Alex Dehoff took a few minutes to answer some questions about her business and general geekery.
I am a magical beauty alchemist of fun and fabulous soaps, cosmetics, lotions, perfumes, and potions. I have a huge line of Harry Potter potions that will be coming with me, as well as a few other of my favorite fandoms sprinkled in- Game of Thrones, Steven Universe, and Bob’s Burgers, to name a few.
- How did you first get started making these things?
Formulating beauty products has been my full-time gig for about a year now. I’ve always loved fun bath products and sparkly make-up, so I decided to start making my own and customizing things exactly the way I want them to be. Lucky for me, a lot of friends and fans have the same obsessions as I do!
- What has been one of your favorite projects to work on?
My favorite thing to do is make something that helps someone feel great about themselves. Bath and beauty routines are such a great part of self-care, relaxation, and confidence boosting. Knowing that I get to be a part of that and have my products be included in the daily routines of my friends and family is the best feeling ever.
- What else can you tell us about yourself?
The current best thing in my life is my toddler, who refers to BB-8 as “Boobie”. He also thinks that Rey is actually me. I could not possibly be more proud.
- So this year’s Geek Gala is about space travel – if you could join any TV/Movie space crew – who would it be and why?
Well what could be better than the Millennium Falcon? I mean, you could go original trilogy and be on Han’s crew, or current films and be piloted by Rey. Are there any greater badasses in any galaxy?
