Fan Girl Friday!

Doctor Who Fan Girl Friday

 

Happy Friday, geeklings! We’ve survived another week and I think we deserve to celebrate with some fandom finds I’ve stumbled across this week! 

Fall is officially here so it’s time to dust off those warm jammies because the nights are about to get chilly! But you can stay nice and toasty in this Toothless Kigurumi!

Sadly, Hiccup is not included. 

 

Fall evenings should be spent snuggled up, watching TV, and eating comfort food. And what better way to Netflix and chili than with this Snorlax bean bag chair:

One of my only complaints about fall is how early it gets dark out. But, with these LED earrings from Perpetual Kid, you have a light no matter where you go!

These would be great for runners! Or, ya know, as a book light while reading in bed because running is the worst. 

 

Cooler temps means I can finally wear actual shoes without fear of them swelling up from the heat of an Oklahoma summer’s day. It also means I can don my super fun socks! I may need to add these to my collection:

Happy Friday, peeps! I know, I know… I’ve really been slacking on the blogging this week. With sickness infiltrating the Huffman Homestead at every turn, its been tough to get us back on our normal routine. Thankfully, all of us are on the uphill swing and I’m getting my shiz together so I can bring you more of the blog posts you’ve come to know and love. Well, maybe not love, but at least tolerate.

Let’s dive in to the nerdy nifties I’ve found for you this week!

Sometimes, being an adult is hard. Just the day-to-day responsibilities and duties that we have to fulfill can be a drag and you just want to feel like a kid again. Enter our first find, courtesy of Perpetual Kid:

chardonnay__35517-1485547322-1280-1280

Oh yes, you read that right: Chardonnay Cotton Candy! For those days when you want to feel like a kid again, but also sophisticated adult that drinks wine. There’s also beer-flavored,  birthday cake, and even bacon!

 

There was a debate this week at the Huffman Homestead as to which was better: Star Wars or Star Trek. Needless to say, things got pretty heated between me and Huff the Tot. I’ll always be hashtag Team The Force, but even I have to admit that Star Trek has some pretty cool tech. And its actually become a reality! Check out this exclusive from ThinkGeek:

jmgi_st_tng_bluetooth_com_badge

Yes, that is an actual WORKING Combadge! This bad boy uses Bluetooth® technology to sync with your phone so you can totes feel like Picard, Crusher, Worf, and the whole TNG gang! Click here to check out all the specs–its not just for calls!

 

Are you new to a fandom? New to the world of cosplays, cons, and fanfic? Need a helping hand to navigate the geeky galaxy ahead? Then look no further than Sam Maggs’ book: The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy!

This book tells you all you need to know about this fantastic, fun, fabulous world of fandoms and everything it encompasses! Plus, Sam includes stories of kick-a women in various fandoms–doubly awesome!

Happy Friday, peeps! Being “iced in” has had its perks! I’ve been able to find some awesomely nerdy nifties and news to brighten your frigid Friday and make this ice-pocalypse just a little more bearable!

 

Eighties ladies, rejoice! I’ve found some some adorable shoes to fill your heart with nostalgia and your closet with glee!

care-bear-shoes

These cute, Care Bear ballet flats from ModCloth are 100% vegan (i.e., no animal parts whatsoever–all man-made materials!) and come in FIVE different colors!

 

Looking to redecorate your home in 2017 but have NO idea how to use a nail and hammer and also want to keep your nerd cred? Opt for EverBlocks!

everblock

These Lego-like blocks aren’t just fun, they’re functional too! According to their site, EverBlock was “…conceived to allow designers, decorators, and inventors everywhere to economically build their dream objects.” I think we need these in the Huffman Homestead!

 

Pokemon Go was HUGE in 2016 (it was the most downloaded app last year, according to Apple). And, with the major updates coming for 2017, I’m thinking its going to explode again! Get your gaming pals together and celebrate with this!

pikachu-cake

“I chews you, Pikachu!” will be the rally cry of all Poke trainers as you devour a delicious slice of this cake, fueling you for more battles in between Pokestops!

 

Anyone else over winter? Because I am. Express your exasperation with this sun-less season with this snarky necklace from Hot Topic10854471_hi

I’ll wear this thing ALL. YEAR. ROUND, yo.

 

Happy fangirling!

Yes, yes, I know–its only Wednesday. BUT, I had to show you some last-minute geeky gifts for the fanboy/fangirl in your life before that pesky two-day shipping becomes obsolete! I’ve found presents for all of the different nerds in your life!

 

For the sharp-dressed Jedi: 

Those bland beige and brown robes are a thing of the past! Help your rebel look fly while arguing about intergalactic trade law in this:

Hashtag, hottest in the galaxy. Hashtag, ballin’ like a Bothan.

This a-DORK-able color-changing unicorn nightlight creates a soft, glowing light while protecting you from bad dreams and from the fear of stepping on a Lego during those late-night bathroom trips!

 

For Your Bestie:

When you think of best friends, who do you think of? Lucy and Ethel? Batman and Robin? Kirk and Spock! Show your bud you’ll always have their back with this Star Trek ensignia friendship necklace!

d6e61244d830c8a5d479a7efa6264291

Let’s just hope one of you doesn’t go the way of Spock in Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan. *Overcome with feels*

 

For the One Who Should’ve Run Away With the Flying Circus: 

Got a friend that thinks he/she’s John Cleese with an American accent? Someone on your list that just will NOT stop acting like they work for the Ministry of Silly Walks? Look no further than Think Geek:

You’ll make your geek so happy, they won’t be able to get out “Aye, tis a scratch!” without crying tears of joy!

Happy fangirling!

Fan Girl Friday!

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!

Batman dress

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

Fan Girl Friday Mario Badge

Happy Friday, boys and girls! Another end to another week! Kept your resolutions so far? Yes? Good job!

If one of your resolutions was to flaunt your fandom, then today’s FGF is made for you!

 

Even though I’ve only caught two episodes of the Peter Capaldi season, I still consider myself a Doctor Who fan. And when I saw these BEE-YOU-TEE-FULL rings on Etsy, I did the biggest of nerd squeals:

doctor who rings

This “his and hers” wedding set (sterling silver and tungsten carbide bands) are less than $120! For the SET! Perfect for Whovians about to travel the galaxy as Doctor and Companion.

 

Make your bathroom routine more patriotic with this set of Captain America towels!

captain american towels

This 3-piece towel set is available from the folks over at Think Geek! Perfect to keep your super hero super clean!

 

Bad spellers of the world, UNTIE! (See what I did there?) I love to write—clearly—and I love any kind of accessory that shows that. That’s why I am totes going to buy this adorable purse from ModCloth:

pencil bag

 

This next find isn’t so much related to a fandom, it’s more just a way to spruce up your workspace with a little fun and flair. Plus, it’s a practical organizational tool! May I introduce the Keyboard Pirates from Monkey Business:

KEYBOARD pirates

These little guys stick in your keyboard (while still allowing you to type) but hold up reminders so you don’t forget to mark all your To Do’s off your list!

 

 

I can’t close out today’s Fan Girl Friday without mentioning the trailer that’s got everyone talking (and no, I don’t mean the one with Mr. Grey). Did you see the Ant-Man trailer this week?! If not, here it is!

What do you think?

 

Happy fangirling!

Fan Girl Friday

Only six days left until Christmas, folks! That means all of you Christmas shopping procrastinators out there are really letting things get down to the wire! Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered! I’m back with a last-minute shopping lists for the fanboys and fangirls in your life!

 

For the {Techy} Happy Camper:

 

This is the ultimate gift for those who like the great outdoors—as long as they can see it from the great indoors. Just listen to these specs from the Eddie Bauer website: “…this three-person, four-season tent is made to be roomy, lightweight, and strong…It packs all the power you need to charge laptops, tablets, lights, cameras, smartphones, and more, while internal wiring will give you plenty of places to hook up!”

tent

Sadly, this bad boy isn’t for sale…yet. I’m sure it’ll cost a pretty penny when it does hit the market, though!

 

For the Smart Dresser:

equation dress

How cute is this dress? (Huff the Babe actually has a cloth diaper that looks like this!) Covered in equations and formulas, this acute dress is available from ModCloth AND you can get it shipped in time for Christmas!

 

For the Whovian (That Doesn’t Like the Dark):

 

As a kid, I was terrified of the dark. Now, thanks to Doctor Who, I realize that fear was totally legitimate because it could’ve been the Vashta Nerada. And, also because of Doctor Who, I need a nightlight even though I’m an adult. And, thanks to Think Geek, I can have one, suited for a Whovian!

For the Manly Man:

I love bacon. I love it so much, my best friend calls me Bacon Face (that’s another story for another day). I think I might have to snag some of this for Huff the Hubs this Christmas:

bacon shaving cream

Its bacon shaving cream! The description from Perpetual Kid alone is enough to buy it: “Its meaty flavor will enhance your shaving experience and leave you with a soft, porky face.  Simply work into a rich and smoky lather with some hot water, shave against the grain and inhale the crisp, meaty scent.”

 

For the Book Worm:

Remember the good ole days of digging through the card catalog, searching for that one book you needed to finish your report on the Berlin Wall? Then finding that behemoth of a book, taking it to the librarian and signing your name on the checkout card? Ah, memories. Now you can relive those days gone by with this sqee-worthy satchel!

book bag

Plus, its only $19.99 from ModCloth! It would really finish off the look of that dress, huh?

 

 

See you next week, kids!
