Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday Marvel

 

Hey y’all! Its been a while since I’ve done an FGF, so I figured I’d make it a good one so you wouldn’t be *too* upset that you’ve missed out on so much nerdy awesomeness!

 

Get your passports and dress robes, people because I just heard that there is going to be a Harry Potter-themed cruise coming to England this year! *Cue the fangirl screams*

Barge Lady Cruises will be hosting a six-day trip down the River Thames making magical stops at locations used in or as inspiration for the Potter films! There’s even a stop at the home used as “4 Privet Drive”! *Packs bag, grabs wand, and waits for an owl to arrive with instructions on how to use the floo network to get to London*

 

And speaking of the spectacle-wearing boy wonder, check out these Hogwarts-inspired clutches from Think Geek!

The uniform-themed bags come in Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw colors!

 

With Valentine’s Day coming up, I’m sure many of you fellas out there are trying to think of that perfect gift for your gal. Let me give you some advice: flowers are lame. 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!

I mean, for reals, just LOOK at that Porg! And if a galaxy far, far away isn’t your lady’s “thing”, there’s many more to choose from including microbes, books,  and science-themed!

 

Sometimes its hard to start the day off in a good mood. Its tough getting out of bed on these cold, winter mornings. Make waking up easier with this unicorn pancake mold from Perpetual Kid!

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!

Sometime this year, game developers Jam City will be releasing a story-driven mobile game (much like PG!) in which you can create an avatar and walk through the halls of Hogwarts! You can attend classes, duel, and much more! For more info, check out Pottermore.com or the game’s website!

 

Y’all, here in Oklahoma, its colder than Hoth out. Which means I need some serious winter weather gear. Thankfully, Columbia has just come out with an awesome line of winter wear inspired by The Empire Strikes Back!

Happy Friday, geeklings! Its the first Fan Girl Friday of the year and I’ve got gobs of geekery to make you smile! Let’s get right to it, mmmkay?

 

I know a lot of people have made resolutions to get fit and go to the gym. Why not rep your geekiness while doing squats with this awesome line of Harry Potter activewear from BlackMilk Clothing!

 

The line includes: active dresses, leggings, racerback tanks, sweatshirts, and shorts! Farewell, Christmas money!

 

I REALLY want to go to Comic Con this year–I guess you could say its one of my “resolutions”. And I’m hoping to run into the awesome folks from CosAbility! They’re a group of folks that help fellow nerds with different abilities be able to cosplay their favorite characters! Check out this video!

 

Have y’all seen The Last Jedi yet? NO?! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?! Sigh… If you need something to fill the Death Star-shaped void in your heart, this next story will do the trick! New mom Becs Reed from Australia decided she needed a nursery out of this world for her little padawan, Vegas-Jack! Just look at this baby girl’s room!

Ever since October, I’ve been obsessed with a new show, Riverdale. Granted, its in its second season so its not really “new” per-se, but its new to me! Anyhow, as I was scrolling through Facebook I came across this hilarious parody by the uber-hilarious Jimmy Fallon and COULD. NOT. STOP. LAUGHING.

Oh, Jimmy, you slay me!

 

Happy fangirling!

As you can tell from your Facebook newsfeed, the first day of school has been kicking off all across the country the past few weeks. One teacher has decided to make this school year his most magical yet! Kyle Hubler, teacher at Evergreen Eagles Middle School in Oregon, set up an AMAZING Harry Potter-themed classroom! Just check out these pics!

Anyone else still reeling from the season finale of Game of Thrones? Lamenting the fact that we have nearly two years to wait to see what is going to happen?! Need someone to cuddle with that understands? Look no further than ThinkGeek!

This 16-inch tall Drogon plush is fully poseable and will listen to you cry for the next 500+ days as you divulge your theories about who will finally sit on the Iron Throne and whether or not Cersei will FINALLY get what’s coming to her.

 

Y’all know I have a deep love for doughnuts. Especially Krispy Kreme doughnuts. But, sadly, the nearest KK is an almost 40 minute drive from my house. So I have to reeeeaaallllyyyy want those fried dough rings to make the trip (and spend the gas-ha!). But, thanks to Jelly Belly, I can have Krispy Kreme any time I want!

Oh yes, my friend. Those are doughnut flavored jellybeans! These yummy little drops of heaven are perfect matches for your favorite morning sugar bomb! I’ll take them all!

IT’S A FREAKING POLLY POCKET PURSE, Y’ALL!! I am seriously geeking out with the nostalgia! I LURVED me some Polly Pocket as a kid and I am so sad I didn’t think to keep those awesome little compacts for Huff the Tot! I. NEED. THIS. PURSE.

 

Happy fangirling!

Ah, Friday. My second favorite “f” word. (What? I was thinking “fries”. What were YOU thinking?!) Enough chit chat, let’s dive right in to the nerdy nifties I’ve found this week!

I really thought Huff the Hubs and I had a pretty nerdy wedding. I mean, our cake toppers were Lego, we had a frickin’ TARDIS, and I walked down the aisle to Storybook Love from The Princess Bride. But this couple? Man, they put us to shame!

Cassie and Lewis Byrom of Manchester, UK totally hit the Snitch out of the pitch with their a-DORK-able Harry Potter-themed nuptials! Just check out these pics!

The bride and groom featured on their very own Wanted posters!

The groom’s boutonniere? Yeah, those are pages from Harry Potter!

The cake not only had house crests, but was adorned with a tribute to The Three Brothers and topped with Voldemort and Bellatrix Lego minifigs!

Every guest (130 of them!) were each given a handmade wand! I wish I would’ve been invited to this! For more pics, click here!

 

Keeping with the HP theme, I’ve found an awesome way to not only help you de-stress, but also find out once and for all which Hogwarts house you belong in! Etsy shop ScentD has these amazing surprise bath bombs that reveal your house colors when dropped in the tub!

il_570xN.947117412_6ou5

Each bath bomb also includes a charm–either a lion for Griffyndor, a badger for Hufflepuff, a serpent for Slytherin, or bird for Ravenclaw! You can choose which house you want OR select “random” and be sorted! (They also have a charcoal bath bomb called “Sirius”!)

 

For the Potterhead that needs a magical manicure, NOVAPolish has what you need!

il_570xN.1013071249_6mzk

Seriously, how cute is that polish?! NOVA also has Totoro, Batman, and other themed polishes!

 

Let people know you mean business with this striking silver Lord Voldemort wand necklace from Soft Kitty Clothing:

Just, ya know, don’t go all “Avada Kedavra” on anyone, mmmkay?

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.
