Countdown to C2E2 2018

Bryan in the workshop creating new limited edition belt buckles for comic cons

One of our favorite shows of the year is just around the corner! We are hard at work getting ready for it and thought we’d give you a little insight into what it is like to be belt makers.

We usually apply to events six months to a year in advance (!!) and have a general idea of some of the shows we will (or would like to) exhibit at. C2E2 is one of the ones that we really look forward to every year. We start planning what to make a month or two ahead so we have enough time to get everything ready.

This year for C2E2 we are focusing on our newest design, the Fractal, and some of our more sci-fi designs, like the Enigma and Android. Just to mix things up, we will also bring some one-off Crazy Combo Androids that are only available in-person at the event. We do this to offer patrons something really special and unique that’s not available on our website. And, of course, because they are just so cool!

We set up a mini belt workshop in our booth so that we can make custom sizes on the spot. We also offer repairs for our designs, resizing if your Obscure Belt needs an adjustment, and free replacement sizing studs. It’s important to us that you see the faces behind the belts and know your purchase supports a local small business.

If you’re at C2E2 in a couple weeks, stop by booth 781 and see us! In the meantime, we’ll be in the workshop. :)

by Cristina Carrera November 11, 2020 2 min read

The Series 7 Dial is the culmination of 15 years of design and engineering. It is smaller, lighter, snappier, and more ergonomic than ever before. We went back to the drawing board to make sure every aspect of this new design is the best version it could be.
