Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday

 

Y’all, I’m glad it’s Friday, but I’m also super bummed. Why? Because I’m in Oklahoma when I SHOULD be in San Diego.

Sigh. For those of us stuck at home, anxiously watching our Twitter feeds to see what’s going down at #SDCC, I have some geeky goodies that will help you feel a little less sad about missing all the fun.

 

This year at Comic Con, Toys R Us is debuting new Batman play sets and they are awesome and full of girl power!

Oh yes! That’s Batgirl from the original 1960’s TV show! AND, there’s another set with my favorite, Harley Quinn and the Dark Knight himself!

 

And speaking of the caped crusader, check out this A-DORK-ABLE dress from ModCloth!

Isn’t it so stinking cute?! I think I know what I’m putting on my Christmas list…

 

This fall, we’re going to see new episodes of our fave shows as well as new toys! Like this Agent Carter Vinyl Pop!

Peggy Carter Vinyl Pop

Peggy’s “Pop” will be released this August! I NEED one of these! I think I may get a Captain American one and put them on a shelf close together. I totally ‘ship them!

 

Love Games of Thrones so much you want to live it, but not much of a LARP-er? Then pick up one of these play sets from HBO and you can pass it off as your kid’s!

Iron Throne Playset

Exclusively from HBO, this line of GoT figurines and sets are basically the show come to life! The first set, above, features Joffrey, Tyrion, and Lannister guards with the Irone Throne. Future sets will have Daenerys, John Snow, Ghost, Grey Worm, Rhaegal and so much more!

 

Y’all, like the boy wizard, I feel as though Hogwarts will always be my home. Anytime I see ANYTHING HP-related, I have to buy it. And it looks like ThinkGeek will be getting a deposit from my Gringott’s account soon! Look at these excellent earrings:

Seriously. How stunning would you look with these dangling from your ears as you walked into the Yule Ball?

 

Happy fangirling!

Fan Girl Friday

Oh yeah, it’s FRIIIIIIIIDAY! I’m gearing up for a crazy three-day weekend of sewing, watching the greatest college football team of all time, and reading! #thuglife

But before I dive in to my wild weekend, I have some fun and fabulous fan girl finds to share!
I’m sure you’ve all seen the a-dork-able Funko Pop Vinyl figurines at Hot Topic. So cute, right? Look at what line was just released!

"You can't take the cute from me."

“You can’t take the cute from me.”

It’s the gang from Firefly! Now you can totally recreate your favorite scenes with these cuties! (Funko also recently released THESE!)
 

I used to be somewhat cynical, but after having a kid, I’ve become so soft (and I’m not just talking about my abs–hey oh!). These next pictures totally made me tear up like a big ole baby!
Holly Spring is the mother of a little girl who was diagnosed with Hirschsprung’s Disease as a baby, leaving her without a left hand. The photographer mom wanted to take some photos of her daughter to inspire her that she can do anything or be anything she wants to be. Check it out:

So ethereal!

This week, we got some very devastating news. Our favorite Japanese feline, Hello Kitty, we are now being told is not an actual cat! Hear that? That was the sound of my heart breaking. Some folks (ME), however, refuse to accept this. So, at this moment, Hello Kitty is both a cat and not a cat. Sound familiar? You can celebrate this Sanrio stalemate with these cute (and also morbid) Schrodinger’s Cat Earrings from Think Geek!

 

These are both accessories and not accessories.

Have a happy (and safe) Labor Day weekend!
