Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday New Background3

 

My little cousin is getting married this weekend, so I’ve had weddings on the brain for the last week or so. And, with it being summer and the season of weddings, I thought I would feature some awesome Etsy shops that carry everything and bride and groom would need for their nerdy nuptials!

 

Need a Save the Date that shows your love for comic books as well as your groom? Awkward Affections has what you need!

Comic Book Wedding Invite

 

Or maybe you’re looking for something a little more retro, like these invitations from The Inked Leaf:

Nintendo Wedding Invites

 

You’ll absolutely need something geeky to throw back the champagne! Glass Cannons has the goblets for you!

Frankenstein and Bride Topper

 

Splendorlocity has cake toppers for couples that are “out of this world”:

Doctor Who Wedding Cake Topper

 

Jessichu Creations can mix-and-match fandoms for those “houses divided”:

Jedi and Hermione Topper

 

And Inked Icing can add a “Red Wedding” flair to your big day (minus the gore):

And you can’t forget to bring a gift for the bride and groom! Head on over to Biterswit for a one-of-a-kind present for the new couple!

Happy fangirling!

 

 

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!

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.

Egg Hunt!

As I woke up this morning in a sea of Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg wrappers and wiped the Peeps sugar dust from my cheek, I realized I didn’t participate or watch an Easter egg hunt at all this weekend! My kid is only 7 months old, so an actual egg hunt would be more like me trying to balance a baby, a camera, and a basket while simultaneously looking at the ground, making sure I don’t step on any hard-boiled eggs. In other words: it would’ve been a disaster. But still, I was sad I didn’t partake in this Easter tradition.

So I went on a different kind of Easter Egg hunt–a virtual egg hunt!

Thanks to Doctor Whowe know Easter Eggs (hidden messages/symbols) can be found in just about any kind of entertainment.

This first video has all kinds of video games from the 70’s to now!

 

This video is more for the hardcore Marvel comic book lovers, but its still super interesting! (I never caught the fact that Stark is wearing a Black Sabbath tee, seeing as how one of Sabbath’s biggest hits was titled Iron Man.)

 

You know I couldn’t do a blog about Easter Eggs without highlighting the KING of EE’s–Pixar!

(This video is in Spanish, lo siento if you don’t know how to habla Español. I understand enough to know that at the 10-minute mark, the narrator says that the number on the dial on the Monster’s Inc. practice scare room is actually the phone number for Pixar HQ! ¡Que fantastico!)

 

See any eggs you’ve never seen before? Know of any not listed?
