This was the first time we’ve worked with them, and it won’t be the last.
Hey DGS, squiddy stormborn here — I helped make drinks! I am absolutely heartbroken this beautiful creation is coming down today — you each just got a follow by me!!! Can’t wait to see what you come up with next ... This has been a month for the books with no end to the outpour of love for your imagination/execution. Truly you will never know how much the people loved it, but I do!!!! Cuz they told me to my face... so mega props to you all for every drop of love and good energy you gave to this pop up, it was far greater an impact than you will ever know. But isn’t that the beauty of being an artist — to build, walk away, inspire and burn ego... thank you for giving us all a reason to gather and grow together under the warm glow of gold light and weirwood.
I went to their Game of Thrones party at the Scum and Villainy Cantina and it was incredible! They pulled out all the stops! They had amazing costumes, cool lighting, replica props, free airbrush tattoos, gorgeous themed decorations - and even the Iron Throne! These people really know how to throw a party 😁
Damn Good Shindig are incredibly professional and fantastic to work with! Nerds Like Us has brought them in for multiple events, including Marvel legend Stan Lee's birthday, and they've always set the bar high with creating fantastic themed environments. They always hit the mark behind the scenes as well: hitting deadlines, adding layers of detail and nuance, and are super organized. From celebrity parties, to nightclubs and bars, there's nothing these super-powered ladies can't accomplish in the realm of immersive experiences!
The DGS Girls are the best! Professional, creative, friendly! They excel at what they do - throw a Damn Good Shindig!!
I was absolutely blown away by the planning, the effort, and the passion that the DGS team put into making this event TRULY special. When I heard that you specialized in ALL types of geeky parties, I was thrilled because it meant I may get to see more of your shindigs in the coming year.
Amazing team, amazing parties, ALWAYS! Anytime I get to work with DGS is such a delight. Can not recommend them enough!
These badass ladies throw one hell of a party! Their theming is TO DIE FOR and their execution is flawless. THE DETAILS. I CANNOT. Their party at SDCC this year (Ready Party One - look it up, it was amazing) was KILLER. I can’t wait to go to more Damn Good Shindigs!
Wow and wow!! Ready Party One was the Stellar and most talked about party of SDCC18!! ... Take my word for it that these guys blew it outa the water ♡♡♡ Lots of us nice nerds are not celebrities…but still like to go and dance, be surrounded by cool decor and enjoy this special time at a Con. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts for creating this, keeping it affordable and accessible by all.
Ready Party One was an 11 on a scale of 1-10!
No lie, I doubt any party for the rest of the weekend can top ready party one. this is a RAGER and also one of the best parties of my adult life.
Ready Party One was the best party of the weekend, literally every party since has been a disappointment.
Ready Party One was definitely one of the best open-to-the-public offsites I've been to. Great crowd, venue, decor
The RP1 party was by far the best Comic Con party I've been to and one of the best parties of all time.
One of the most incredible, moving, and creative experiences I’ve ever been too. Polished and clever, their parties have been a wondrous world to be immersed into time and time again.
These ladies are amazing with their quality of execution and design. They pay attention to details and the elements used to transform a uniquely themed space. I’m always blown away!
I’ve been to several events now. Absolutely love them!! Great attention to detail. Wonderful theming.
These ladies really know how to make parties awesome! Seriously authentic and creative props and art designs make you feel like you're actually in the worlds they throw parties for! If you have not been to one of their events, go. You will not be disappointed! Their creative level exceeds even the best themed parties I've been to, so much fun!
A Huge shout out and thank you to the ladies of Damn Good Shindig for making my parents' backyard into mini Middle Earth! My bridal shower was amazing and beautiful and it wouldn't be this way without you ladies putting hard work and sweating your butts off in the heat to get it done. Seriously from the bottom of my heart, love everything you put together that day. There are no words when I got to see people's faces as they looked at all the decor. And they made these by hand!!!!! If you are looking for a nerdy or geeky theme for a party but don't know where to start or how to do it. Contact these ladies right now!!! They will help you make your nerdy/geeky dreams come true.
