Happy Friday, all! Bummed you can’t go to San Diego Comic Con? Yeah, me too. Sigh. Even though you can’t be there reveling in all the geeky glory, I can still bring you noteworthy nerdy nifties to make you feel like you’re there!

Her Universe has just released a new line of Disney-related garb at #SDCC and I have to say, its ADORABLE! Just check out what they’ve got!

 

This gorgeous, Ariel-inspired top is great for walking on the beach this summer!

Little mermaid top

You can totally pair it with these scaly petal pushers to complete your mermaid ensemble:

A look worthy of a sea princess!

 

Need a dress for date night or a night out with the girls? You’ll definitely light up the night with this Rapunzel dress!

Accessorize with these Pascal earrings, because we all need a trusty side-kick!

Happy Friday, everyone! If you’re as sad as I am to not be at San Diego Comic Con, turn that frown upside down! Just because we aren’t there doesn’t mean we can’t have all the scoop! I’ve got trailers, clips, and news to make you a little happier you’re not dealing with the “wet-wipe-bathing” crowds at SDCC!

Y’all, I was NEVER into anime or Japanese movies before I met Huff the Hubs. Now? He’s made a believer out of me! One of my FAVORITE Japanese films, Death Note, is coming to Netflix and I am SUPER excited! Check out the exclusive con clip!

 

One of my favorite cartoons as a kid was Rocko’s Modern Life and I am feeling all kinds of nostalgic because its being rebooted! And the trailer is FINALLY here!

 

And, of course, we can’t forget everyone’s favorite zombie hunters! The cast of The Walking Dead throws all kinds of crazy in SDCC’s trailer for the AMC show!

 

Technically, this last trailer debuted about a week ago at D23, but I am so freaking excited I HAVE to share with you! This is the first “teaser” (if you want to call it that; it has clips from the first film, not the sequel) of The Incredibles 2 which is set to premiere next June! SQUEEEE!

 

Happy fangirling!

Her’s Day Thursday

Hers Day Thursday Girl

 

With Comic Con kicking off in San Diego yesterday, I thought it would be fun to talk about some of my favorite female characters from the various fandoms I love! And let me tell ya, not all women in geekdom are leather-clad eye candy.

Hermione Granger

Hermione Granger

This book-loving Muggle-born will forever be my favorite character from the Harry Potter universe. Hermione was always the one to tell Harry, Ron, and everyone else to rise above the foolishness that Draco and his cronies were always spouting. She used her brain (and brawn when necessary) and founded S.P.E.W. (The Society for the Promotion of Elvish Welfare). Hermione is a fierce female and I’m proud my kid is named after her!

 

Donna Noble

donna-noble-catherine-tate-2

Nobody–not even Donna herself–thought she was anything special. But, as it turns out, Donna was “the most important woman in the whole wide universe”. After just one trip with the Doctor, Donna was forever changed. She knew something was amiss with the Adipose company and took matters into her own hands, investigating and eventually teaming up with her favorite Gallifrean! Donna traveled the universe and kicked butt during all of her adventures and also fought for the rights of others!

 

Katniss Everdeen

Katniss

Aside from the whole “dangerously-close-to-TwilightI-level-love-traingle”, Katniss is a total BAMF. True, homegirl probably needed some therapy after all of the tragedies she’s endured in her young life, but its not like Panem had healthcare. Anyway, she worked hard to provide for her family after the death of her father, fought bravely in the Arena (TWICE), and basically rescued all of Panem from the hands of yet another dictator. The Mockingjay lives, y’all!

 

Kaylee Frye

Kaylee

Kaylee is not only a sweet, cheerful, down-home girl, but she can fix basically anything with an engine faster than you can say: “No power in the ‘verse can stop me.” Kaylee loves her shipmates on Serenity so genuinely and fiercely loyal to her captain and beloved ship.

 

Do any of these ladies top your list of favorite fandom females? Who’s YOUR favorite character? Share in the comments below!

 

 

 

Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday Button

 

Sorry I was MIA last week. This whole “preppring-to-leave-my-job-of-five-years” thing has been a little crazy! But I’m back! And OMSquee, you guys, I’ve got SO much to tell you!

First, can we just take a moment to lament the fact that we missed San Diego Comic Con?! UGH! I want to go back SO. FRAKKING. BAD. Especially after seeing this A-DORK-ABLE video the folks over at The Nerdist made!

 

I should have been there! Waaahhh! *Sniff* Okay, moving on.

Y’all, I really think Sherlock fans are some of the best people in the world. Not only because we love a guy with a ridiculous name, but also because we have to wait YEARS in between seasons. So quit your whining, Game of Thrones fans! We know what REAL torture is! And the teaser for the next season of our favorite sleuth just hit the web, making us a tad bit impatient for next year!

So is Moriarty REALLY back? Why is Mrs. Hudson so mad? Will Holmes keep the beard?! These are pressing matters we need answers to STAT.

 

I kind of feel awkward telling you this next bit of news. See, I only read the fir,st two books of the Divergent series. I don’t even remember seeing the second movie! I also didn’t know that the final book was split into two movies! The final movie is called:

ascendant

Now, for those of you wanting to see it on the big screen, bad news. According to MoviePilot.com, the last film will be released as a TV movie! This is pretty shocking to me! I thought this franchise was pretty successful. Though everyone I know that’s read the final book HATED it. So. Maybe not? What are your thoughts on this?

 

NASA has been in the news a lot lately, what with the whole Juno entering Jupiter’s orbit and the mission to Mars. And, because NASA is filled with fandom-loving folks such as us (you know, but with doctorates and super smarts) they recently released photos of their new mission patches!

leuajeiddcixadbydwnv

You’re not seeing things; that IS Rocket Raccoon and Groot! According to The Nerdist, NASA hope this will get the general population more interested in what they’re doing:

“The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) is hoping that putting these characters one their uniforms will help draw eyes to the International Space Station and to their mission in general.”

Here’s hoping they come out with a “NASA Astronaut Awesome Mix Vol. 1” for the mission as well!

Fan Girl Friday!

Doesn’t it feel like we were just here seven days ago? I guess that’s the thing about Fridays; they’re kind of a weekly thing! And what better way to celebrate Friday and all of its glory than with geeky goodies for everyone?

Got a mighty girl in your midst that needs a heroine she can emulate (besides her amazing mum, of course) while eating her crackers and drinking juice? Then look no further than this awesome dinner set from Perpetual Kid!

WOnder Woman Kids Set

 

This BPA-free, microwave-safe set comes with a cup, bowl, and plate for your little crime-fighter!

 

And, if Momma needs to feel a bit more WONDERful (see what I did there?) then pick up one of these from Shop Post!

Wonderwoman workoubottle

Stay hydrated, look fab, and burn some serious calories with this Wonder Woman water bottle, complete with exercises printed on the bottle to keep your bod in Amazonian-shape!

 

Y’all, I have FINALLY gotten caught up on Once Upon a Time, and holy cow! So much is going on in the town of Storybrooke! AND, so much is going on HERE with our favorite cast! At Comic Con, it was revealed that our OUAT characters are getting a Vinyl Pop makeover!

OUAT Vinyl Pop

 

Premiering on August 15th, the show will talk all things Who! According to David Tennant News, “…they’ll revisit eight of the most popular Doctor Who episodes of the past ten years of Doctor Who’s modern era…there will be never-before-seen interviews with the cast and creators. There will also be fun new segments, trivia, fan-generated content and tons of Comic-Con footage.” SQUEEEEE!
Summer heat got you locked up inside but the neighborhood kids all up in your lawn? Don’t go “Gran Torino” yet. Just pick up one of these bad boys and enemies (and youths) will stay off your grass:
Game of Gnomes
This deadly King of Gnomes takes what he wants and listens to no one. Which is why his throne is made up of garden rakes and spades he’s lifted from his enemies cold, marble hands. Though he may only be 10 inches tall, he can strike fear into the hearts of gnomes everywhere. And possibly neighborhood cats.

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!

Batman dress

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:

Harry Potter 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

Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittttttttttttssssssssssss Friday!

 

Time to kick back; drink a cold glass of Diet A&W® and binge-watch Sherlock on Netflix.

 

But, before the chillaxing begins, take a gander at these delightfully dorky treasures I’ve track down from the web!

 

San Diego Comic Con was almost a month ago, but I’m still finding out some awesome things that happened at the convention! Like this!

Lee Pace

Lee Pace totally photobombed sleeping fans that were camped out outside of Hall H! Click the link for more amazing things you may have missed from this year’s SDCC!

 

JJ Abrams is pretty much my favorite director. Not just because of his ability to breathe new life into old franchises, but also because he keeps tweeting/leaking photos from the new Star Wars flick! Check out Han Solo’s new costume!

Harrison Ford

What do you think? It really reminds me of a certain space cowboy

 

And speaking of space, look at this AMAZING space-themed room a dad made for his son! Complete with rocket!

 

This week, the world lost one of the greatest comedians in the history of comedy, Robin Williams. The tributes have been pouring in. They’re all very touching, however I think this one is the best. The cast of Broadyway’s Aladdin paid a musical tribute to him onstage after one of their shows. Take a look:
