Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday WallE

 

Hey y’all! Its been a hot minute since I’ve done a Fan Girl Friday and I thought your sweet little nerd hearts have been pining away for some geeky goodies so I’m back! These nerdy nifties are sure to get you back into my good graces so let’s dive in!

 

Personally, I’m an extrovert. I like being in a group (most of the time) and feel at ease with a lot of folks. However, I know not everyone is like me and I have a lot of peeps in my life that are perfectly content to just stay at home with a good book. Looks like I’ll be buying these socks from Perpetual Kid for them for Christmas!

My brother-in-law is a connoisseur of board games. Seriously. I don’t even know how many the man has but I’m fairly certain its in the triple digits. Anyway, he brought over a game and I loved it so much, I bought it! And now they have a Marvel edition!

marvel codenames

Here’s what Hot Topic says about game play: “The Marvel Edition of Codenames combines the hit social word game with the Marvel Universe including Spider Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avengers and Doctor Strange. Two Cluemasters on opposing teams, S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra, give one-word clues to help their teammates be the first to identify all of their team’s field agents from the 25 cards displayed in a 5 x 5 grid.” Seriously, you guys. This game is SO MUCH fun!

 

And speaking of board games, I think I’ve finally found a game in which I will totally beat the pants off of everyone! Four words: HARRY. POTTER. TRIVIAL. PURSUIT.

According to Think Geek, the different categories are: Slytherin House, Death Eaters and The Dark Arts; Objects & Artifacts; Animals, Magical Creatures and Magical Beings; Witches, Wizards, Ghosts and Muggles; Hogwarts, Other Locations and Transportation; and Spells, Potions and Other Magic. The game also comes with four game pieces, each one representing the different Houses of Hogwarts! *cue fangirl scream*

 

Y’all, I’m not going to lie, I totally squealed when I saw this t-shirt! I have been wanting a shirt like this ever since The Fellowship of the Ring came out!

door shierrt

This Hot Topic online exclusive tee features the Doors of Durin and the phrase, “Speak friends, and enter” (just like mine and Huff the Hubs’ welcome mat!). *immediately orders shirt*

 

Happy fangirling!

 

Fan Girl Friday

fan-girl-friday-harry-potter

I gotta be real with y’all. I meant to post this special-themed Fan Girl Friday weeks ago! *face palm* But, life happened, and I was just way too busy and completely forgot! Maybe I should invest in a Remebrall… Anywhoo, with Harry Potter’s birthday not too long ago and the release of the HP and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Lego minifig line, I thought it would be totally appropriate to highlight some fabulous finds from the wizarding world! Hold on to your Nimbuses, folks!

Look sweet while promoting your favorite candy shop in Hogsmeade with this a-DORK-able top from Hot Topic!

HoneyDukesShirt

This tie-bottom Honeyduke’s blouse features your favorite sweets from HP: chocolate frogs, sugar quills, cauldron cakes, iced mice, and more!

 

If I were able to visit Diagon Alley for realsies, the absolute FIRST place I would go would be Weasley Wizard Wheeze’s! Think if I was wearing this dress I’d get a discount?

Weasley Wizard Wheezes dress

Not only does this dress highlight some of the best part of the ginger brothers’ inventory (like pygmy puffs and exploding hats) but IT. HAS. POCKETS. That’s the dream!

 

Anyone else want to just curl up next to the fire at The Burrow (the Weasley’s home) and have Momma Molly make you a nice treackle tart and a glass of tea? Well, now we can kind of get that warm fuzzy feeling with this AWESOME 3-D puzzle of the Weasley’s home!

“Its not much, but its home.”

“I think its brilliant!” Same, Harry. SAME.

 

Looking for something a bit more magical for the next family game night? Look no further than the Harry Potter edition of Headbandz!

Available at Barnes and Noble stores, this game is sure to be a favorite of kids and adults alike!

 

Saving for a trip to Harry Potter World next summer? Maybe a holiday in London? You’ll need a place to keep your funds safe from sticky fingers. Look no further than the most secure bank in the world (and it fits on your dresser)!

gringotts bank

Oh yes, my dear, that IS a ceramic Gringott’s Bank (from geeky supplier Box Lunch) to hold your Sickles, Galleons, and Knuts! Or, you know, your Muggle money. Whatevs.

Happy Friday, nerdlings! Anyone nursing wounds from the fiasco that was Build-A-Bear Pay Your Age Day?! I went out yesterday and it was IN-FREAKING-SANE. And no, we didn’t get a bear. But we did eat cheesecake after we left the mall, so, who’s the real winner here? To take your minds off of not snagging an amazing deal on the furry friends, I’ve rounded up some awesomely geek-tastic news and merch sure to fill the bear-shaped hole in your heart!

 

The Huffmans will be making the trek out to the House of Mouse in Florida this fall and I think Huff the Tot and I need a pair of these magically magnificent shoes!

Cinderella-Toms-Disney-Collection-750x1125

Shoemaker TOMs has partnered up  with Disney to create a new line of princess-inspired flats for women and kids! The shoes feet-ure (hey oh!) original sketches from the archives at Disney studios! Cinderella, Aurora, and Snow White will all have their own lines, each releasing this summer! SQUEE!

 

A few weeks ago, I told you about how Lego is releasing a series of Harry Potter minifigs. But what I didn’t tell you was the Lego is also releasing new HP sets as well! They’re all amazing and I want each one!

I mean, the Whomping Willow set?! YES, PLEASE! For more info, click here!

 

I absolutely love Lord of the Rings and anything Tolkien-related, so when I heard that Middle Earth was coming back to the small screen, I couldn’t contain my excitement!

aragorn_by_bbanfield-d73ojr7.png

According to Variety, the new series will take place before the events of The Fellowship of the Ring, and mostly center around a young Aragorn! Amazon is set to stream the multi-season show and will be working alongside The Tolkien Trust to ensure the show is up to par!

 

I seriously feel like one of the most underrated Disney movies is The Emperor’s New Groove. The spoiled Kuzko getting turned into a llama and voiced by David Spade? Come on, people! Its comedy gold! Which is why I am loving this new throw blanket from Hot Topic:

The tapestry-inspired blanket includes pictures of llama Kuzko, kitten Yzma, and the adorable little squirrel friend of Kronk! Just be sure to put your name on it or write “No Touchy!” on the back!

 

Happy fangirling!

Reminiscent of Nedry’s shirt from the original JP, this 100% cotton shirt features dinos and the park’s logo! Sadly, a can of Barbasol with raptor embryos is sold separately.

 

Huff the Hubs, the kids, and I are going to Disney World this fall and I think I need a pair of these bad boys to wear to the new Pixar World!

These light-up heels feature Buzz Lightyear and his arch-nemesis, the evil Emperor Zurg!  I think they need to make some princess ones too… get on that, mmkay?

They only stick around for a while and then they die. You know what doesn’t fade? The absolute A-DORK-ABLE-NESS of this Star Wars plushie bouquet!

Happy Friday! Do you enjoy the feel of a new paperback? What about the smell of fresh pages? Then today’s FGF is just for you because all of the geeky goodies are for book lovers!

 

One of my literary heroes is Jane Austen. She was such an amazing writer and marched to the beat of her own drum! Which is why I love that she has been immortalized as an action figure!

This lovely figurine is an Archie McPhee exclusive and comes in a book-inspired box! Perfect for your shelves!

 

Pretty sure all of us as kids tried to escape into a magical world through our closets after reading The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. Although all my sisters and I found was a hole and drywall. Sigh. Relive those days with this a-DORK-able tee from Mental Floss!
