Fan Girl Friday!

Doctor Who Fan Girl Friday

 

Happy Friday, geeklings! We’ve survived another week and I think we deserve to celebrate with some fandom finds I’ve stumbled across this week! 

Fall is officially here so it’s time to dust off those warm jammies because the nights are about to get chilly! But you can stay nice and toasty in this Toothless Kigurumi!

Sadly, Hiccup is not included. 

 

Fall evenings should be spent snuggled up, watching TV, and eating comfort food. And what better way to Netflix and chili than with this Snorlax bean bag chair:

One of my only complaints about fall is how early it gets dark out. But, with these LED earrings from Perpetual Kid, you have a light no matter where you go!

These would be great for runners! Or, ya know, as a book light while reading in bed because running is the worst. 

 

Cooler temps means I can finally wear actual shoes without fear of them swelling up from the heat of an Oklahoma summer’s day. It also means I can don my super fun socks! I may need to add these to my collection:

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:

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

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!

I’m sooooo glad its the weekend! But not so much looking forward to tomorrow’s marathon training. I have to run 20 miles. 20. Freaking. Miles. That’s far. Like, Forrest Gump far. Okay, maybe not that far, but still!

I’m glad I’ve found some geeky goodies to brighten up my day!

 

Want to make sure your precious dragon babies are kept safe and you always know where they are? Wear them around your neck with this GORGEOUS necklace from Think Geek!

 

A Mother's Day gift for the Kaleesi in your life.

And speaking of jewelry, you’ll set the trend at this year’s Star Fleet Prom with these trend-setting dangle earrings!

Live long and accessorize well!

Spring is here, and you know what that means: spring cleaning. And its not just limited to your closets, people. Time to clean off your hard drive of the photos, videos, and documents you’ve been saving over the past year! And what better way to do it than with this throwback! Its a USB drive that looks like a mix tape!

Sadly, so many kids nowadays have NO idea what cassettes are!

Sunday night was The Walking Dead‘s season finale (and it. was. CRAZY.) and sadly, we’ll have to wait until OCTOBER for more episodes! (What’s going to happen at Terminus? Is Beth ever going to show up? Where’s Tyrese, Carol, and Baby Judith? What will Carl eat 120 ounces of next?!) We can mourn the empty hole left in our hearts, OR, we can show solidarity to Rick and the gang by sporting these:

 

Does it come with an I <3 Daryl pendant?

Fancy for the apocalypse!

 

Have a great weekend, fan-peeps!

Happy Friday Peeps! (And happy birthday, BB!)

I’ve got some great goodies to share with and help you kick your weekend off right!

For you dog lovers (which, how could you NOT be a dog lover?) check out this AMAZE-BALLS leash from Fred Flare! Its seriously the fanny pack (or, if you’re Ted Mosby: ‘El Gonzo con la rinonera!’) of the leash-world!

Need something? Let me use my Mary Poppins leash...

Need something? Let me use my Mary Poppins leash…

This bad boy is retractable, has space for treats, poo-bags, a light for when you’re walking at night, and a clock! Plus it comes in snazzy colors!

 

Also from Fred Flare are these gems. I’m a little sad I didn’t know about these sooner; they would’ve been a GREAT accessory for tomorrow night’s New Kids on the Block concert! I may go ahead and order them anyway…just to rock some old school style.

No need to hold a boombox to your ear, anymore!

Did you know Shark Week is coming up?! Have you seen the awesomely hilarious ad that Discovery Channel is running to promote their seven days of sea mayhem? Its pretty stinkin’ funny. Anywhoo, if you’re one of the many people who L-O-V-E-S SW, you NEED this mug from Perpetual Kid. Seriously:

I will never look at breakfast the same way again.

Its heat activated so when you pour in your morning cup of Joe, you unleash the power of Jaws on an unsuspecting swimmer.
