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!

Happy Friday, y’all! Its been a KA-RA-ZEE week around here and I’ve been off my blogging game a bit. But, I’m back today with geeky goodies to get your weekend started on a nerdy note!

Am I the only one that sits around and wonders what life would be like if unicorns existed? And what would their farts smell like? Well, wonder no more! Perpetual Kid has you covered!

Bag of Unicorn Farts

This bag contains sachets full of the essence of unicorn methane! And, what’s better, 10% of your purchase goes toward the Unicorn Children’s Foundation, which helps nerodiverse children. Read more about the foundation here!

 

You guys know I have mad love for Harry Potter. And with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child as well as Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them coming out soon, its pretty much reigniting the flame. But so are these!

HP Coloring Book

Four, count them FOUR coloring books are hitting the shelves! They include the one above, magical places, magical creatures, and favorite characters! Check out more about the books here!

 

Game of Thrones isn’t known for its happy-go-lucky storylines (Hold the door, anyone?) nor for bringing people together (except Cersi and Jaime, amirite? Hey-oh!) But now, GoT is bringing people together for a fun game night with this!

jhjp_game_of_thrones_clue_combo

Its GoT Clue! This double-sided board game features settings in the Red Keep and Meereen as well as 12 suspects (Cersei, Jaime, Tyrion, Sansa, Littlefinger, Margaery Tyrell, Daenerys, Hizdahr Zo Loraq, Missandei, Daario, Jorah Mormont, and Grey Worm) and weapons from the show, including the Faceless Men! Gather the clan and speculate widely!

 

Alice Through The Looking Glass hit theaters last week and the merch is EVERYWHERE! And I am LOVING it! Like this a-DORK-able dress from Hot Topic!

I seriously LURVE this dress! I don’t think I could pull it off, but I will totally gaze at it adoringly every time I pass HT whilst taking Huff the Tot to play at the mall playground.

 

Happy fangirling!

 

 

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.

Fan Girl Friday!

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

Happy Friday! It has been one, long, HOT week here in the Middle of America. But I’ve found some cool treats to help us chillax (see what I did there?) into our weekend!

 

I love anything and everything related to the UK. I’ve been to London three times and my Netflix queue is filled to the brim with British shows. I’m also a Game of Thrones fan (even though I haven’t watched too much of this season). So when I saw this, I was so. Freaking. Excited!

It’s the Queen’s Guard playing the GoT theme song! And people say that Britons have no sense of humor…

 

Speaking of Brits; get ready Whovians! Word on the street at SDCC (aka, San Diego Comic Con—happening this week!) is that Peter Jackson, our favorite Hobbit-loving director, will be using his talents on the small screen! That’s right, PJ is going to direct an episode of Doctor Who!

Do you have a picky eater in your house? Is dinnertime a battle? Make it fun with this game board-inspired plate from Give Simple!

start to finish kids plate

Just put your kid’s dinner in the little openings, and have them eat as they go! Then, when they reach the Finish Line, they can uncover a treat! (I actually know a few adults who need to eat off of this—HA!)

 

And speaking of eating (aka, my favorite hobby), dessert just got a whole lot better! Some students at Harvard came up with the most amazing invention ever: cake in a spray can!

Snack time is forever changed!

Fan Girl Friday

Happy Friday, peeps!

 

Summer is in full swing with the sweltering heat and scorching sun burning everyone to a Tan Mom crisp.

 

Summer also means San Diego Comic Con! Woo! And guess who’s making his first SDCC appearance? Its Baker Street’s sexiest sleuth!

ben

Yes! Benedict Cumberbatch will join the rest of The Penguins of Madagascar cast! Friday’s schedule for Comic Con has also been released! It jam-packed with all our favorite fandoms! There’s a Game of Thrones panel as well as The Walking Dead and Daniel Radcliffe will be appearing at SDCC for the first time promoting Horns!

 

I haven’t heard, but I’m willing to bet that there will be a Mockingjay: Part One panel too! And speaking of the people of Panem, check out this amazing new teaser trailer for the next film in The Hunger Games saga!

 

Not only does summer mean heat and conventions, it also means wedding season is here! My mailbox is getting flooded with invites! I’m hoping that some of the nuptuals I’m invited to have rings as awesome as these:

Mine and Huff the Hubs anniversary is also coming up! I’m thinking I may need to drop some subtle hints that I want this!

Thrones Bookend

It’s The Iron Throne in bookend form! Protect your books from falling with a the pointiest of regal chairs!

 

Have a great weekend!

 

 

Fan Girl Monday

Happy Monday! Ugh, I got such a bad taste in my mouth when I wrote that. Happy and Monday just don’t go together. Although, today they do!

 

I’m making up for leaving you hanging on Friday with zero blog post by doing a Fan Girl Monday! Woot, woot!

 

I’m sure all of you have seen this, but its totally worth sharing again! Last week, a new teaser for Mockingjay: Part One hit the interwebs and Tributes everywhere collectively squealed.

I. CANNOT. WAIT. For November!

 

 

Tomorrow is July 1st, so you know what that means! No, not fireworks, Comic Con is almost here! *Kermit arm flail* YAAAAAAYYY! I’m sure all you fanboys and fangirls are putting the last minute touches on your cosplay attire, but if you still need some fancy frocks to wear to the Masquerade Ball, check out this!

 

You can't take the sky from me.

It’s a Browncoat coat! You can look oh-so-shiny at #SDCC this year!

 

 

So, I have to admit something. I don’t actually watch Game of Thrones. Well, I take that back. I’ve watched like, half of season one. But I do catch a few scenes here and there and I’m pretty up-to-date on the “haps” because of my Pinterest feed. But, when I saw this, I cracked up! I equate it with watching Harry Potter with people who haven’t read the books. It’s oddly exhilarating.

 

Sometimes, when I see weddings on Pinterest, I get sad and wish I would’ve thought to do some of the things others have done at my wedding (don’t get me wrong, my wedding was awesome-sauce, but walking out to the Imperial March would’ve been stellar!). But this really makes me say, “WHY DIDN’T WE DO THIS?!”
