GGB NYC: Wear Your Fandom
We’ve had some big brunches this year and now it was time to take things back to basics: giant pretzels, giant beer and lots of nerdy shirts! Welcome to May’s Wear Your Fandom brunch. As usual our resident illustrator, Monique Steele knocked it out of the ballpark with her beautiful illustration! Can you name all the fandoms?
On Sunday, May 22nd we donned our best shirts, cosplay, hats, and socks to meet at the Reichenbach Hall. So many fandoms represented! We had Supernatural shirts, Doctor Who skirts, pin hats and more – even the Hamilton fandom was there! Shout-out to new brunchette Jordan Dene for our officer’s Hamilton shirt.
We also raffled off two mystery bags! Oooooo!!! We had the Dystopian Lady BAMF Box with Insurgent and Divergent blu-rays as well as a Mockingjay shirt! We also had the Casual Cosplay Box with Batman vs. Superman Shirt, Star Wars nail file, Union Jack Hair Bow (designed by our own NYC Officer Jada), and temporary tattoos!
After the beer and food was finished, we took one last group photo and headed to the brand new ThinkGeek store that opened up! Everyone “ooo”d and “ahh”d over the sale on Star Wars LoungeFly bags, figures, POP sale and more! Needless to say, many of us walked out with even more goodies and apparel to display at brunches to come.
