Fan Girl Friday!

Happy first Friday of fall, y’all! I don’t know how the weather is where you’re fangirlin’, but here in Oklahoma it STILL feels like summer! I’m ready for hashtag PSL’s and bulky sweaters that cover up my summer of bad decisions. Pretty sure the only thing that can cheer me up is a blog full of nerdy nifties! Oh, look, here’s one now!

Today I’m bringing you geeky goodies from one of my new favorite fandoms that is actually celebrating its fifty anniversary! Its a fandom that will boldly take you where–well, let’s face it–other fandoms have taken you before… but none have looked as good doing it as Captain Picard, amirite?! That’s right, today’s FGF is all about Star Trek!

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Gene Roddenberry’s genius, the USPS is launching limited edition stamps! Check ’em out!

Want some simple Star Trek swag to accessorize with?  Then look no further than Etsy shop JewelSculpts! They’ve got a lot of amazingly geeky gear, like this Vulcan salute necklace!

You’re out of your Vulcan mind if you don’t snag this! (<–see what I did there?)

 

Are you raising up future Trekkers? Don’t worry, Mattel has you covered, Geek Mom and Dad! Barbie is getting in on the fun with Kirk, Spock, and Uhura dolls!

Not only that, but Mega Bloks is also releasing Star Trek sets as well! And, bonus! They’re compatible with Legos!

Live long and prosper, fangirls and fanboys!

Fan Girl Friday!

Happy Friday, fangirls and boys! Even though its been a busy week, I have found some nerdy nifties to make your weekend be filled with geeky joy!

 

I’m sure most of you are ECSTATIC that it is finally #PSLseason and that means pumpkin flavored errythang! This year, though, its not just pumpkin that’s making the rounds, but butterscotch as well! M&M’s will be debuting their butterscotch-flavored candies very soon and–good news!–sources say they taste JUST. LIKE. BUTTERBEER!

So even if you can’t get away to Harry Potter World, bust open a bag of these, pop in HP #1 in the DVD player, and don those robes! It’ll be like you’re back at Hogwarts!

 

When I was a kid, I thought I was a bad-a clothing designer because I was a Fashion Plates pro! Now, thanks to an awesome company called Picture This, kids can wear their actual drawings/designs!

Picture This was founded by a mother who created a dress designed by her daughter. Her little one loved the dress and lit up when she told people, “I’m wearing my imagination!” Now kids everyone can do the same!

 

This year, Star Trek is celebrating their 50th anniversary! There’s a lot of limited-edition gear coming out, but I think my favorite is from RockLove Jewelry! Just check out this GORGEOUS Starfleet ring!

starfleet-ring

Not only do they have awesome jewelry for Trekkers, but they TONS of fandoms to choose from!

 

And speaking of a-DORK-able jewelry, I’ve found an awesome new Etsy shop full of accessories for fangirls! PeachesandPebbles Shop has a great selection, including hard-to-find fandoms like Totoro!

SO. FREAKING. CUTE!

Happy Friday Star Wars Release Day, y’all! I am so stinking excited to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens I can barely stand it! Sadly, I couldn’t get tickets until Monday evening, so I’m thinking I’ll be on a “social media blackout” until then. I’ve had waaay too many things spoiled just by scrolling through my newsfeed. I’ve learned my lesson.

 

Today is not only momentous because Jedis and Storm Troopers are back in the cinemas, but also because it’s exactly ONE week until Christmas! If you’re still trying to get those last-minute/hard-to-buy-for gifts knocked off your To Do list, I can help!

 

For the “silly walker” in your life, look no further than the Monty Python’s Quest for the Holy Grail 40th Anniversary Edition!

Monty Python 40th Anniversary Edition

This awesome set comes packed with bonus features, behind-the-scenes looks, and cast interviews all packed into a castle box complete with animals you can toss over the walls! Who wouldn’t love that?!

 

For the Trekker Mom-To-Be on your list, keep it logical with this Vulcan on Board maternity tee from Think Geek!

irqk_vulcan_on_board_ruched_maternity_tee_mb

Live long and prosper, Momma.

 

For the one who treats their life like a musical, grab this sparkly necklace from Perpetual Kid!

Wizard of Oz Necklace

Just don’t be offended if they try to click the heels on the charms to go home in the middle of your Christmas party.

 

For the overworked/sarcastic mother in your life (which, let’s face it, is basically every mom!), let them don this little beauty so everyone can see their hilarious snark:

I childproofed my house necklace

Pretty sure my mom probably said this a few times when my sisters and I were little, ha!

 

Have you finished your shopping yet? Better hurry!

Most people are happy, however us Okies are battening down the hatches because its about to get all kinds of crazy up in herrr… We’ve got tornadoes, hail, flash floods and a 100% chance of tigers!

How cute is this Star Wars-meets-utensils-mug from Perpetual Kid?

This would make a great gift for the Jedi in your life and, at $11.99, it won’t break the bank!

 

Speaking of the greatest trilogy known to man (I refuse to acknowledge Episodes 1-3. They are crap, sir.), make your toast a little more dark (see what I did there?) thanks to Think Geek!

vader toaster

Seriously, how fantabulous is this toaster?! Not only is it shaped like Vader’s helmet, but it actually toasts the words “Star Wars” on your bread (or waffles…or Toaster Strudel®).

 

Here at THP, we’re all about nerd culture, so when I saw this, I did the flailiest of Kermit arm flails!

geek art book

This book highlights artists and their work in the world of video games, movies, comic books, and television shows! It’s like Nerd-Vana!

 

I really like Origami Owl. I think that their stuff is super cute, but, I’m bummed that they don’t have nerdy jewelry/charms. Enter Etsy shop WonderlandContraband! Just check out these adorable charms:

Its Bill Nye the Science Guy!

Everyone’s favorite sleuth! (Check out those curls!)

 

I need to show this shop to Huff the Hubs! V-Day is fast-approaching!

 

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.

These are both accessories and not accessories.

 

Have a happy (and safe) Labor Day weekend!

I know I can’t be the only one who is super excited about seeing our favorite Frozen characters on Once Upon A Time this fall. Am I right? The show leaked a photo of the snowy sisters on their Facebook page this week! We’ve seen Elsa but now we get to see little sis Anna as well:

 

Think she's looking at Kristoff?

Think she’s looking at Kristoff?

What do you think? She a hit or a miss?

 

And speaking of Frozen, check out this amazing mash-up of the movie’s anthem Let It Go with Passenger’s Let Her Go:

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 Friday

Ah, another Friday has come and {almost} gone. And it couldn’t have come soon enough!

My To-Do list is about a mile long, so I’ve welcomed surfing the interwebs for some delightfully geeky finds for you!

 

I am a HUGE Disney-file. So if there’s anything even remotely Disney related, I’m sold. I was wasting time on Pinterest the other day when I came across an AMAZING pin! There’s an artist named Tyson Murphy (he’s great, people) that has taken movie stills from classic animated Disney films and–for lack of a better term–“Pixar-ed” them. Check out what he did with 101 Dalmatians:

disney

Just when you thought Disney couldn’t get any better!

 

 

I know I highlight jewelry a lot on here, but I can’t help it! Especially when it includes a fandom like Divergent! Check out this lovely Abnegation-themed necklace from the Etsy shop, ChristaLinaSales!

She has a necklace for all the factions as well as Disney-themed jewelry! Go check out her store!

“Divergents threaten the system…with their sense of style.”

 

This weekend is JAM-PACKED with events. Seriously. I think Sunday I’ll need to be sure I rest and relax. Maybe curl up with my Tardis blanket and throw on a pair of these:

K9 Slippers

Companions for your feet!

 

And finally, it seems as though everyone that has seen Frozen–young and old–absolutely LURVES it! Whats not to love? Strong female lead? Check. Kick-a music? Check. Adorable rock trolls? Check, check, check. If you just can’t get enough Frozen, click here to hear SIX bonus songs that didn’t make the cut into the final version of the film! Even Anna and Kristoff are excited:

Fan Girl Friday

Woah! Today’s blog post is a little late. Huff the Hubs and I were at the bank seeing how much money they’d give us for a house. Luckily, they didn’t laugh us out of the building…but it was very close. Needless to say, I need some nerdiness to cleanse my pallette.

 

This week has reminded me that being an adult really sucks. And being a kid is awesome: no career worries, no financial struggles, and most of all, no frets about how your body is breaking down. So when I saw these from artist Craig Davison, I got a heart full of nostalgia. Davison is a huge Star Wars fan and wanted to capture the magic of a child’s imagination. (Click the link for more!)

Whovians get excited! Filming for the new season with new Doctor, Peter Capaldi, has started in Cardiff! Wooo! We know Jenna Coleman will be reprising her role as the Doctor’s spunky side-kick, Clara Oswald, but we’ve also gotten word that there will be a secondary companion (a la Mickey and Rory). His name is Samuel Anderson and will be playing Danny Pink, a teacher at Coal Hill School where Clara also teaches. I wonder if there’s a romance between the two….?

I’m not much of a jewelry girl, but I am a Harry Potter girl. So when I saw these House rings, from AWESOME site Tomorrow’s Unknown, I squealed like a little girl and immediately showed them to Huff the Hubs (our anniversary’s coming up in a few months, right?!).

Got a pooch who loves Picard just as much as you? Then Think Geek has what your four-legged fandog needs! Check out this awesome Star Trek-inspired captain’s chair dog bed!
