Her’s Day Thursday

Hers Day Thursday Girl

 

Halloween is almost here! I’m not so much into the whole gory, scary, parts of Hallowen–I just lurves the cosplay part of it! I’ve always loved dressing up in costumes. Especially well thought out costumes or creative costumes. I mourn for girls nowadays because, as Mean Girls showed us, Halloween has changed A LOT.

Happy Friday, peeps! Comic Con has come and gone, but don’t worry! I’m your girl when it comes to fulfilling your need for nerdy new and nifties! Let’s dive in!

 

Have you heard? Pottery Barn is coming out with an all-new Harry Potter line in their teen section! Its supposed to hit stores this fall, but this week PB released a few images so we could get a sneak peek!

OH. EM. SQUEE! Look at the Daily Prophet-inspired comforter! And the Snitch clock! Looks like I’m going to be spending a lot of Sickles at Pottery Barn this fall! If you want to see more, click this link and use the code “Hogwarts” to see more pics!

 

One of my favorite things about conventions are all of the amazing cosplays! I think they are just as much fun as the panels! One woman who’s cosplay game is on point is Solange, AKA “Aunty Sun”, from Brazil. Just check out her photos:

If I had to think of one brand that summed up my elementary school years it would most definitely be Lisa Frank. Those stickers, binders, Trapper Keepers, and pencils were EVERYWHERE! Thanks to Target, now us 80’s/90’s kids can feel all nostalgic while we’re crawling into bed at 9:30 wearing these:

Seriously, how cute are these jammies?! I definitely need the unicorn sleep shirt in my life.

 

Happy fangirling!

Happy Friday, y’all! After the bad news that seemed to never end this week, I think we could all use some happy. Enter: Fan Girl Friday! I’ve got some fun finds that is sure to brighten up your day!

 

I’ve never been to WonderCon, but I’d really like to go! I have, however, been to San Diego Comic Con (aka, Mecca for Geeks) and I LURVE seeing all of the cosplayers in their get ups! One of these days I’ll convince Huff the Hubs to cosplay at a con so we can be like this awesome couple:

cosplay parents

They’re known as the “Cosplay Parents” and have a major internet following! The Nerdist reports:

“…they are relative novices to the con scene. But like most cosplayers, once they got started, they were immediately hooked. Their daughter spent years creating her own costumes and attending Anime Expo, but it wasn’t until the couple retired that they caught the cosplay bug themselves.”

How cute is that?! Click here for more of their a-DORK-able cosplays!

 

While I was scouring the interwebs for geeky goodies, I came across an awesome bakery website! Award-winning The Little Cherry Cake Company (in association with Black Cherry Cake Company) in the UK makes some nerdy nummies that fit just about every fandom! Just look!
