Welcome to another Muggles Market Spotlight for 2017! Today, we are delighted to announce the addition of new artisan Carolyn’s Geek Boutique to our second annual Muggles’ Market at this year’s Geek Gala. Carolyn Poynter took a few minutes to answer some questions about her business and general geekery.
I make handmade baby bibs, burp cloths, cup cozies, unpaper towels, wash cloths, key chains, full size hooded bath towels. I also do custom embroidered shirts and towels.
It all started with my aunt sending my cute handmade bibs for my son, and wanting more geeky items for him.
I love custom orders. My favorite order has been a custom Baby Cthulhu Costume.
I’m a work at home Mom with an amazing 2.5 year old to keep me on my toes. I have a great business partner. Without him I wouldn’t be able to do all the things I do, and make so many great products. He really helps keep me on track. I’m so glad I could turn my love of sewing and all things Geek/Fandom into a career. My favorite Fandoms right now are Star Wars and Doctor Who. I grew up going to San Diego Comic Con. That’s where I fell in love with wandering through the Exhibitors halls and Artist alley to find so many great handmade items.
I like the classics, so I would say I’d like to see a rebirth of King Kong vs. Godzilla. The portrayal and CGI of of Kong in Kong: Skull Island really lends it self to what could be an epic showdown.
