WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF A GOOD THEME

Theme parties aren't just for 8-year-olds! When you're passionate about something, we believe you should celebrate it with your whole heart. Whether you are transforming your living room for a milestone birthday party, having a wedding based on your favorite series, or looking to have your bar "Cosplay" for a month as something current and timely, Damn Good Shindig is here to bring that concept to life.

DETAILED RESEARCH & EXECUTION

At Damn Good Shindig, our specialty is taking a theme or property and distilling it into elegant details that celebrate our client's passion. From meticulous research and deep-dive conversations with our clients, we like to uncover the unique aspects of a concept and find ways to elevate them and make them both beautiful and impactful. We are most often recognized for our attention to detail.

HANDCRAFTED AND CREATIVELY SOURCED

Our goal is to make sure your event is executed with care, flare, and is unique to you. We source film-industry standard materials, as well as upcycling materials and found objects for creative reuse. We lend our film-industry skillset to custom fabrication to add realism and texture to all decor. Your event will not look like anyone else's, and will display all the whimsy and charm that your favorite fandom contains.

TESTIMONIALS

 

Damn Good Shindig over delivered in every way transforming Scum & Villainy into an amazing Game of Thrones inspired look to celebrate the final season. The entire team was beyond a pleasure to work with, fun and kind, and insanely professional.

This was the first time we’ve worked with them, and it won’t be the last.

J.C. Reifenberg, owner, Scum & Villainy Cantina

[DGS is] 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!

Bernie Bregman, Nerds Like Us, Experience Level Entertainment

A Huge shout out and thank you to the ladies of Damn Good Shindig for making my parents' backyard into mini Middle Earth! ..  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.
