Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday Star Wars Banner

 

Happy Star Wars Day! May the Fourth be with you! I’ve got lots of Star Wars swag to share with you, so let’s dive right in!

 

We may be geeks, but that doesn’t mean we’re always walking around in t-shirts and cargo pants. Some folks like to be chic geeks and I proudly support that. As does ThinkGeek with this Chewbacca-inspired blazer!

This brown blazer comes with leather elbow patches, the Rebel Alliance emblem embroidered on the front, and lined with fabric covered in our favorite wookie’s face!

 

Hosting a dinner party to celebrate the day? If you need something fancy, look no further than these plates, straight from Cloud City:

These plates are great for serving up a Bantha Burger, Ewok Eggrolls, or Wookie Cookies!

 

Got a padawan that wants to join in on the festivities while still looking fly? Gap Kids just dropped their new Star Wars line! Check out the cuteness!

They also have board shorts, t-shirts, bucket hats, and much more!

 

Ever wonder what that rugged, scruffy-looking nerf herder we wall know and love smells like? Probably danger and dirty money, right? Wrong! According to Etsy store Lazy Bear Apothecary, Han Solo exudes amber, patchouli, and sandalwood:

That’s right; this store has Star Wars-inspired candles! They even have a Kylo Ren!

 

Happy fangirling!

Happy Friday, peeps! And what an awesome Friday it is. Not only does this kick off an incredible 3-day weekend BUT Sunday is Geek Pride Day! That’s right people, much like Star Wars Day a few weeks ago, GPD is a day to let your fandom flag fly!

You can create the geeky ambiance for you and your Player Two with these fantastically fandom fragranced candles from Etsy shop Frostbeard!

“Rolling hills, sunflowers, and hairy feet.”

They have all kinds: The Shire, Dumbledore’s Office, and even Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey!

 

It’s that time of year again, the time when our mailboxes are full of wedding invitations and, oh yes, graduation announcements. Need something for the geeky grad in your life? Think Geek has just the thing!

 

"I want your brrraaaiiiinnnsss! But only if you have a GPA of 3.5 or higher!"

Did you know that Geek Pride Day was originally supposed to pay homage to the release of Star Wars but shares the date with two other fandom holidays—Towel Day (for Hitchhiker fans) and The Glorious 25th of May (for Discworld fans)? Because there was so much geekdom in one day, it morphed into GPD!And to celebrate the origins, JJ Abrams created a contest that could possibly get YOU on the set of the new Star Wars flick while also helping out UNICEF! Seriously!

You’d be doing good and increasing your chances of meeting Han Solo! If chosen, you would shoot a scene for the movie, be Abrams’ VIP guest on the set in London, and even bring a pal with you! Click the link for more!

Hello my fellow fan girls (and boys)!

I found so many awesome fandom worthy finds it was hard to narrow them down! So get ready for greatness, peeps!

First up, check out this dresser from Ikea Hackers!

Pretty sure this is Hawkeye's dresser.

Pretty sure this is Hawkeye’s dresser.

The folks over at IH take kits from Ikea and then make them into their own creations! Pretty cool, huh? (Although, I think its kind of cheating to use the Swede’s design…why not just do something original?)

 

Just a head’s up: Mother’s Day is right around the corner. For those of you not sure what to get the geek mom in your life, I suggest this:

Oh Link, you shouldn't have!

Oh Link, you shouldn’t have!

Isn’t that adorable?! The clever mind over at Ohmygeekness on Etsy also has Super Mario Brothers/Duck Hunt rings, as well as earrings! So adorbs!

 

Now that we’re all moved in to our new two-bedroom apartment, Huff the Hubs and I can start buying things for our little Hermione. First up? THIS:

I'm Batman.

I’m Batman.

 

How cool is this carseat?! Totally blows all other seats out of the water! The people at Gizmodo never cease to amaze me.

 

Did anyone catch the midnight screening of Iron Man 3 last night?! I heard its AWESOME. I also heard that there’s a scene where someone is watching Downton Abbey. Favreau just got major geek points for that clever move. If you haven’t gone yet, you should head over to Think Geek, so you can rock this shirt, Stark style:

Billionaire, genius, playboy, philanthropist.

Billionaire, genius, playboy, philanthropist.

And it actually lights up! How awesome is that?!

 

And last, but certainly not least, surely you must know what tomorrow is…May 4th. As in Star Wars Day! Woot woot! I plan on kickin’ back with a couple of cold ROOT beers, and seeing if my pops can build one of these bad boys:

"That's no grill."

“That’s no grill.”

How cool would it be to have this in your backyard? Can’t you just see it now: sitting around your patio cantina, watching the padawans play, while Chewy tries to repair a droid? Ahh…that’s the life.

 

Have a great weekend, kids. And May the fourth be with you!
