Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit’s Friday! WOO! I am so glad that the weekend is FINALLY here! Oh wait, I’m a mom. I don’t get weekends. C’est la vie! But at least I found some kick-a nerdy nifties to make my geek heart glad!

 

This week, the Avengers: Age of Ultron gag reel was released online. I love watching these! It makes my heart happy to see my favorite super heroes screwing up their lines and being silly!

 

And speaking of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, two of our favorite Avengers made an appearance at Salt Lake City’s Comic Con this past week and were part of a very sweet surprise:

Fan Girl Friday Captain America Proposal

The girl in the photo, Kelsey Jenkins, was just as surprised as Chris Evans and Hailey Atwell at her boyfriend’s proposal! Actually, I think Hailey’s reaction shows that she was the most surprised, lol! Click here for more of the cute cosplayer’s story!

 

I’m on a Marvel roll right now, y’all! Might as well keep it going, huh? We got an awesome sneak peek this week for Netflix’s original series, Marvel’s Jessica Jones hitting the subscription service in late November! Check it out:

This girl looks like a total BAMF and I cannot wait to watch her kick butt and take names! Well, that and the fact that David Tennant will also be starring *swoon*.

 

Need a low-key, yet stylish costume for Halloween? Then look no further than this adorable Black Widow dress from ThinkGeek!

It’s finally here, y’all—Friday is back to grace us with its beautiful presence! Holla! And to commemorate this blessed occasion, I’ve collected all kinds of geeky goodies for your pleasure!

 

Need to protect your belongings? Look no further than this exclusive from Think Geek!

Captain America Backpack

This Captain America-inspire backpack is great for holding all of your stuff that you don’t want falling into Hydra’s hands!

 

If you’re like Huff the Hubs, you enjoy birthday cards…for about ten seconds. He finds them kind of pointless because they “don’t serve a purpose”. But I think if he received one of these he’d LOVE cards!

DIY Cards

Each wooden card comes with pieces to pop out and construct! The cards come in three different robot shapes!

 

I am really looking forward to summer. I’m about sick and tired of the May rains we’re experiencing in Oklahoma. I also love food. So this next find warms my heart:

pizza slice pool float

Lounge whilst dreaming of tasty pizza! Best of both worlds, baby!

 

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with Troll dolls. Seriously. I had a collection! (Wow, I was weird kid…) That’s why I need about ten pairs of these adorkable shoes from ModCloth:

troll flats

Trollies may come from acorns, but these shoes are from the nerdy heavens!

 

Get ready, people, because I’m about to drop some nerd news that’s going to make you flip! Nintendo announced this week that it will be working with Universal Studios to bring the world of Mario to its theme parks!

nintendo theme park

That’s right, people! In a matter of months you could be racing on Rainbow Road or searching for Zelda alongside Link at Universal Studios in Orlando! Its still up in the air what the final plans are/where the Nintendo area of Universal will be, but, rumor is they’ll be taking up the area that formerly held Marvel’s superheroes (because Marvel was bought by Disney, Wolverine and his pals will probably be high-tailing it Cinderlla’s castle soon). Get excited! (Note: the link to the story has NSFW language!)

Happy Friday, boys and girls! Another end to another week! Kept your resolutions so far? Yes? Good job!

If one of your resolutions was to flaunt your fandom, then today’s FGF is made for you!

 

Even though I’ve only caught two episodes of the Peter Capaldi season, I still consider myself a Doctor Who fan. And when I saw these BEE-YOU-TEE-FULL rings on Etsy, I did the biggest of nerd squeals:

doctor who rings

This “his and hers” wedding set (sterling silver and tungsten carbide bands) are less than $120! For the SET! Perfect for Whovians about to travel the galaxy as Doctor and Companion.

 

Make your bathroom routine more patriotic with this set of Captain America towels!

This 3-piece towel set is available from the folks over at Think Geek! Perfect to keep your super hero super clean!

 

Bad spellers of the world, UNTIE! (See what I did there?) I love to write—clearly—and I love any kind of accessory that shows that. That’s why I am totes going to buy this adorable purse from ModCloth:

pencil bag

 

This next find isn’t so much related to a fandom, it’s more just a way to spruce up your workspace with a little fun and flair. Plus, it’s a practical organizational tool! May I introduce the Keyboard Pirates from Monkey Business:

KEYBOARD pirates

These little guys stick in your keyboard (while still allowing you to type) but hold up reminders so you don’t forget to mark all your To Do’s off your list!

 

 

I can’t close out today’s Fan Girl Friday without mentioning the trailer that’s got everyone talking (and no, I don’t mean the one with Mr. Grey). Did you see the Ant-Man trailer this week?! If not, here it is!

What do you think?

 

Happy fangirling!

Fan Girl Friday

Ooooooh yeaaaahhh! Its the end of another work week, baby! And you know what that means: geeky goodies to whet your fangirl (or fanboy) appetite! And I’ve got some AWESOME finds this week!

You guys, the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer is FINALLY here and I’m pretty sure the Internet almost broke because I watched it so many times! Haven’t seen it? Here ya go:

Looks awesome, right?! I’m a little nervous after seeing Captain America’s shield split in two… Please tell me nothing bad happens to The Cap! He’s my fave!

 

And speaking of caps (like that segue?) check this ah-MAY-zing tactical hat from Think Geek! There’s pockets to store all your stuff!

hstp_sev_tec_hat

I want one! You know how handy these things would be at places like the fair, concerts, or the zoo? You wouldn’t have to carry a big purse around! Just stuff your stuff in your hat!

 

Remember a few FGF’s ago when I showed you the gorgeous wedding cakes Disney World offers for folks who hitched at their parks? Well take a look at these mind-blowing confections! (Click here for more!)

Who wants to make one of these for my birthday this year? Any takers? Bueller? Bueller?

 

Halloween is next Friday, but some are already in the spooky spirit. Like this little boy named Noah! He was born this summer and, instead of choosing just one costume, his parents chose 31!

wheres waldo baby

His parents, Jessica and Peter Chavkin LURVE All Hallows Eve and have been posting their son’s daily dress up on their Instagram account. Go take a look at the cuteness! My favorite? Baby Noah as Jean Valjean!

 

 

Fan Girl Friday

Happy Friday, peeps! I have SO much to share with my fellow fangirls and boys! Get excited because the web has been a buzz all week with news about our favorite fandoms!

 

Was I the only one who audibly gasped during the season finale of Once Upon a Time when a certain blonde in a blue dress sashayed out of that portal? Didn’t think so. After months of speculating, we finally have a face to put with that braid!

Fabulously Frozen!

Winter is coming.

Her name is Georgina Haig and she’s a relative newcomer (i.e., she hasn’t been in a lot of well-known projects) but I think she looks pretty great as Elsa! What do you think?

 

One of the reasons Huff the Hubs and I went to London last year (other than to take a big trip before Hermione was born) was so we could see Oxford—AKA, one of the inspirations for the set designers of the Harry Potter films. I was pretty excited to see The Great Hall (which looked very similar to the one at Hogwarts) but these girls put our trip to shame. They are on a quest to find all of the famous locales from their favorite fandoms! Check it out!

We'll be late for Herbology!

We’ll be late for Herbology!

You can keep up with their ongoing quest here on their Tumblr page! Go look; its awesome!

 

 

I don’t know about you, but I am really suffering from L.O.D.W., which stands for Lack of Doctor Who. Symptoms include staring longingly at the BBC America channel’s listings in the TV guide, wearing fezzes when its not appropriate, and telling people to hurry up by saying, “Allonsy!” And sadly, the only cure is more Doctor Who. But, that won’t be happening for a while. Thankfully, we can watch things like this and get our Who on!

 

 

There’s going to be changes coming to a comicbook store near you! Not only is Marvel going to be replacing Thor with a lady this fall, but they’ve also chosen someone new to carry the star-spangled shield! That’s right, there’s a new Captain America in town!

Capt America

And he’s non-other than Steve’s BFF, Sam Wilson (AKA, The Falcon)! What do you think about the change? Like it?

 

 

Huff the Hubs is a HUGE Weird Al Yankovic fan. He adores the guy. Seriously. I think he’s alright. I mean, the main reason why I love him is because he works with Hanson a lot; he even directed and made a cameo in their music videos! Yankovic’s new album dropped this week and he’s been giving us tastes of the new songs with a new music video every day this week. My favorite so far has to be this one. It speaks to the Grammar Nazi within me.

Comic Con: A Recap

You’re all probably sick of me writing about Comic Con. And, if you are, then I have only one thing to say to you:

 

 

Now that that’s settled, lets move on.

 

Comic Con was last week and sadly, I was not there. However I did do a lot of internet searching stalking and found out some awesome tidbits about all the nerdy things I (and many of you) love!

 

First up, the movies!

 

Divergent

 

Tris and Four

Tris and Four

At the Divergent panel, the stars talked about the movie adaptation of one of my new favorite dystopian series. From what I gather around the interwebs, the cast was pretty vague about what was going to happen in the movie/how close to the book it would be. Although Shailene Woodley (AKA, Tris) did say she was excited to see how the scene where Christina is held over the chasm turns out in the final cut!

 

Catching Fire

Oh yes, JLaw and JHutch were at this year’s SDCC with all the Quarter Quell scoop! I couldn’t find any video of the actual panel, but I’m really hoping that the guy that plays Finnick was there in his net toga. I’m sure the fangirls would’ve went wild! Even if he wasn’t, they surely flip their lids when they saw the NEW trailer for CF! I dare you to not get goosebumps:

 

Captain America: Winter Soldier

Back off, Black Widow!

Back off, Black Widow!

According to what I’ve read on various geeky sites, the sequel to Captain America is going to be EPIC. We’re going to see Capt. Steve Rogers like we’ve never seen him before. He’s more confident after leading the Avengers in NYC, and is ready to take on anything (except maybe pop culture references that have nothing to do with flying monkeys). And, according to many con-goers, there’s a steamy kissing scene between the Captain and Black Widow. I know a certain sister of mine who is NOT going to be happy about that!

 

Batman/Superman

Zack Snyder pretending to be Chris Hardwick.

Zack Snyder pretending to be Chris Hardwick.

Oh yes, my friends, the rumors are true. At the Man of Steel panel, director Zach Snyder broke the news that a Batman/Superman flick is in the works and should be released in 2015! Henry Cavill will come back as the wonder boy from Krypton, as will Amy Adams and Diane Lane. The question is now, who will be Batman? Christian Bale has already said he’s hung up the cowl for good, so he will not be returning. My vote? Joseph Gordon Levitt. I really hope they do this right. Maybe Snyder should call up Joss Whedon for some advice…?

 

And now for the television shows!

 

The Walking Dead

Hey Rick, how you doin'?

Hey Rick, how you doin’?

OMZ. I am so freaking excited for the new season of The Walking Dead! I actually got to watch the trailer online a few days ago (okay, I’ve watched it like, 4 times now) and I got chills Every. Single. Time. The peeps from the jail are back and have a new sense of survival. Rick’s back from his CrazyTown trip and is finally back to the Rick we know and love. Carl’s hair is still growing and Daryl still looks like the hottest homeless man in the world. Now that the whole Woodbury fiasco is over and done with, the show can get back to the main point of it all: ZOMBIES. Holy crap were there a lot of undead walking around in that trailer! Don’t believe me? Just take a look…

 

Vampire Diaries

Like a boss.

Like a boss.

This year’s season finale of VD left me going: “OMG!” and “Whaaa—?”

Whilst I was shocked by some of the things that happened (Bonnie dying, Jeremy coming back to life, Katherine becoming human, and Stefan being Silas’ doppelganger, I was also confused. Why would Klaus just up and leave? (Because of the spinoff, duh) And if the hunters are all alive, why can’t Bonnie be alive too? I thought all the supernatural’s were supposed to cross back through the veil…? Anyway, at Comic Con last week the VD panel showed a new trailer for this season and I am so stoked! I remember when I went to Comic Con and on preview night, we got to see the first episode of the show. I looked over at my sister when the credits rolled and said: “Um, we HAVE to watch this!”

 

link this to Johnny Galecki:

 

Big Bang Theory

 

From what I gathered, the panel for TBBT was supposed to just be writers…not really something you get too worked up about. But, in true Comic Con fashion, there were a few surprises to be revealed. Melissa Rauch (AKA Bernadette) stepped out to a roar of applause when introduced as the panel’s moderator. When Rauch opened the panel up for questions from the audience, someone dressed as Boushh (AKA Princess Leia’s alter ego in Return of the Jedi) with mask and all, Rauch exclaimed: “Reveal yourself!” To which the Boushh impersonator took off his helmet and replied: “Someone who loves you!” It was none other than Dr. Hofstadter himself, Mr. Johnny Galecki! The crowd of course went wild and Johnny joined the panel of writers. When the audience members asked what we could see in season 7, the writers threw them a bone: we’ll see Leonard on the ship working with Stephen Hawking’s crew, Amy and Bernadette are going to take a trip sans Penny, and when asked if Amy and Sheldon would ever take their relationship to the next level (nudge, nudge; wink, wink) the writer’s said: “It’s a very good possibility!” *Cue the middle school “Ooooooh”s! The panel concluded with a very special (and funny) video from Stephen Hawking:
