Atomic Misfit Curator Feature Day 1- Sideshow Con 2020

As a part of Sideshow Con 2020, we are excited to announce an entirely new brand focused on celebrating the chic, unique, and misfit geeks- meet Atomic Misfit!

This inclusive brand creates and curates everything wild, weird, whimsical, and wondrous to inspire you and your unique style. To celebrate this exciting launch, every day during Sideshow Con, we will be featuring our first round of curator highlights from our own team as spotlight our favorite fandoms and products that celebrate them!

Get ready to meet today’s featured curator, Kat R. from Sideshow’s Customer Support team! Here’s what she had to say about what monstrous and magnificent creations inspire her style!


Please introduce yourself to our audience.

Hello! I’m Kat from Customer Support. I’ve been with Sideshow for 4 wonderful years.


What would you say are your three favorite pop culture fandoms/licenses? Why do you like them, and how you connect to them as a fan?

Creature from the Black Lagoon – He’s just misunderstood, really. He needs love like everyone else. How can you not feel for the big green guy?!

Alien – This is a beautiful art film with a sleek and terrifying Giger monster in space featuring an awesome female protagonist. It’s got everything one needs.

Mothra (Godzilla) – Queen of all monsters. She’s beautiful, a loving mother, and an absolute bada** on top of it.


What from our catalogue would you recommend for likeminded collectors? What personally inspires you?

Recommendation #1: Sailor Moon Moon Stick (Bandai) AND the Sailor Moon Transformation Brooch Disguise Pen Set (Bandai) – I adore Sailor Moon. I have always wanted to be Sailor Moon, and now I can. These were both day one pre-orders for me. Plus, the disguise pen is a real pen so I can make notes with it and live my fantasy all day, every day!

Recommendation #2: No Ordinary Love Bust (Dark Horse) – Camilla d’Errico is a crazy talented artist one of my absolute favorite independents. I have bought prints from her booth at SDCC every year since 2009, so it is such a delight to see a 3D representation of art that means so much to me.

Recommendation #3: The Creature & Frankenstein Bottle Stopper Box Set (Factory Entertainment)– I love a practical decoration. If I’ve got some wine to save for later, you better believe I want to see these faces staring back at me when I go in for the kill. They work really well to keep wine (and even champagne!) fresh too.


Come back tomorrow- Tuesday, July 21st- for another featured Atomic Misfit curator from the Sideshow Team, as a part of the Sideshow Con 2020 celebration!
