Steampunk Month Giveaway: Socks from Sock Dreams!

You know what you need? Socks.

But not just any socks: soft, warm, GORGEOUS and stylish socks.

Sock Dreams has generously donated two sets of prizes to Tor.com for Steampunk month! The first is a pair of O Chevrons over the knee stockings, in red/black. The second is a pair of M Stockings, long ribbed socks, also in dark red. Both also come with a $10 gift certificate to Sock Dreams! These things are beautiful and totally luxurious, and I cannot imagine anyone not totally loving them. I have been fondling them between typing paragraphs. (I’m not proud.)

The gift certificates are good for anything in her store, and the selection is just unbelievable. She has big soft wooly socks, anklet socks, stockings, pantyhose, kids & baby socks, men’s socks, and so much more. The designs range from the simple to beautifully complex, so there really is something for everyone.

The Rules: To get this giveaway, all you need to do is comment (once—duplicates won’t count) on this post. The winners will be selected at random. You have until noon EST on Thursday, October 29th, to comment here. Please check your e-mail on this day—you have 24 hours to respond before I select a new winner.

 


Torie Atkinson may not make it through Steampunk Month without emptying her own wallet.

As Prince George (Hugh Laurie) said:

Oh, my, yes.

I don't have enough good words to say about them, or their socks, but I love every pair I've got. And they certainly do some excellent mens' styles, for men whose socks show.

I like Sock Dreams. I will warn everyone though: the really high thigh-high socks? Way too narrow for girls of actual life size. Really. If your thighs are larger than your biceps, probably not gonna fit. But their other socks are bueno. Also, they have sock garters. Way too cute to pass up.
BearMountainBooks
92. lyracole
sock dreams is absolutely amazing; i own three pairs already, with more planned, even if i don't win :)

Tuesday, November 17th from 6 to 9 PM.

Writer and Production Designer Jeffrey Morris will be on hand to sign his amazing new sci-fi book Slingshot and debut a spectacular trailer for the project.

Slingshot: Jupiter Conspiracy is the first 'DIY Sci-Fi' project of its kind.

Combining a screenplay, technical manual, and prestige art book, Slingshot delivers action, adventure, and compelling characters—all contained in a story grounded by real science.

With backgrounds in numerous areas of media—from illustration and design to screenwriting and visual effects—the Slingshot team has created a new and compelling vision of the future. Since 2007, over $1,000,000 of creative development has occurred on the property.

Taking place at Jupiter and its moons in the year 2100, Slingshot is story about the thirst for energy, the quest for speed, and the discovery of alien life.

The 176-page book includes over 200 pieces of stunning production art and technical information from NASA scientists and engineers with a Foreword written by Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin.

Mixing the corporate intrigue of Aliens, the space combat of Battlestar Galactica and a universe as fully-realized as Star Trek, Slingshot is a ‘must have” for all fans of high-quality, hard science fiction.
