Happy First Day of September, AKA “Return to Hogwarts” Day! And seeing as how Platform 9 3/4 will be bustling with little witches and wizards getting ready to go back to school–as I’m sure your little geeklings have already–today’s FGF is all about back to school gear!

 

I feel like we have a TON of Tupperware in our house. So this microwaveable bento lunch box was practically made for us! PLUS, it features Totoro!

This airtight container can be used in the microwave AND its dishwasher safe! Plus, its adorable! Get it here!

 

Got a gamer in your brood who would rather battle the boss than keep track of their homework? Etsy shop StalkingMarla has what you need!

These recycled game planners are amazing! Not only are they high-quality, but they’re eco-friendly AND features any game of your choice!

 

Got books on the brain? Let your bibliophile flag fly with these tee from ThinkGeek!

The shirts range from Small to 3X, so TG has you covered!

 

Need a way to calculate how many blocks it will take to build that Lego Death Star? I got chu. Or, should I say, Perpetual Kid’s got chu.

PK’s Lego-inspired calculators come in four awesome colors–red, blue, green, and black!

 

Now that you’re all stocked for the new school year, you need something to carry all your geeky swag! And ThinkGeek has the mother (of dragons) of all backpacks for you!

Happy long weekend and happy fangirling!

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!

Pottery Barn HP

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:

To see more, go to her Facebook page and scroll through her albums! She looks AMAZING as Moana’s Gramma Tala!

 

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, 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!

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!

It’s the first Friday in June, peeps! Its time for sun, fun, and lots of pasty legs in shorts! Woot, woot! I’ve rounded up some nerdy nifties to help you get your summer kicked into full gear!

 

Summer days are made for being in the pool. Honestly, I don’t know why people even leave the pool during June, July, and August (especially in Oklahoma)! Why get out of the cool, refreshing place to grab a drink when you can snag this awesome swag from Perpetual Kid?

Float Up Tiki Bar

At over five feet wide, this floating tiki bar has spaces for seven cold beverages (adult or otherwise) as well as a built-in ice chest! ALOHA!

 

Summer is FULL of weddings. Want to look chic while also staying true to your inner geek? Look no further than this a-DORK-able dress from Think Geek!

Star Trek Dress

This dress is covered in retro prints of starships from Star Trek! It even has pockets–that’s the dream!

 

Have a baby shower this summer? Help a sleep-deprived nerd momma out by gifting one of these!

Jedi First Year

This Jedi’s First Year calendar is not only handy for a new momma in her zombie-like state to know what day it is, it also doubles as a “baby’s first year” scrapbook! There are spots for pictures, baby’s milestones, and growth charts!

 

Ladies, are you ever out and about and need a screwdriver? Maybe a bottle opener? A nail file? But you’ve left your big bag of holding at home? Or maybe you just don’t like carrying a bunch of stuff with you. Have I got the thing for you!

These hair clips are also multi-tools! They come in black, silver, and pink! Just look at these specs!

I’m seriously considering getting some of these for all of my gal pals!

 

Have a fandom find you want featured on FGF? Hit me up on Twitter: @thehuffmanpost!

Fan Girl Friday!

Ah, Friday. Such a glorious day! And this one is even better because its part of a three-day weekend! Woot, woot! And I have exactly what you need to get your summer season started off right!

 

Thinking about hanging outside, watching the hunky pool boy? Wait, you don’t have a hunky pool boy? No worries, Perpetual Kid has you covered!

Hunky Pool Boy Floatie

Toss this good lookin’ fella in the pool and he’ll carry you around like the diva you are in his bulky arms!

 

Want to just catch some sun while also showing your nerdy side? Grab one of these circuit board swimsuits from Think Geek!

Circuit Board Swimsuit

One of the best things about this (besides its super comfortable and modest design) is that the binary coding on it spells “Love”! D’awww…

 

Maybe you don’t want to go out and instead, you want to have a weekend in! Your pals will definitely thank you for being a friend when you invite them over to play Golden Girls Clue!

Golden Girls Clue

According to ToyWiz.com, this specialty version of Clue “features a custom illustrated game board, where players attempt to solve the crime of WHO ate the last piece cheesecake, WHAT they left at the scene of the crime, and WHICH room they did it in.” When in doubt, blame Blanche!

 

Or, maybe, you’d rather use this extra-long weekend to just get away from people and spend some time with your fur babies. Why not spoil them with some nerdy cardboard houses from CacaoPets!

cardboard cat box

These amazing creations come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including the TARDIS, an Imperial Stormtrooper, and even a tank! They’re easy to assemble–no glue required! You’d better order one right meow!

 

Happy fangirling!
