Fan Girl Friday!

Happy Friday, nerlings! I hope you’ve been enjoying your summer and applying plenty of SPF 10000 because that’s what you need in the Oklahoma heat! I’ve rounded up some geeky goodies, so gird your loins! It’s about to get a whole lot nerdier up in this piece!

Watching Stranger Things season two made me all nostalgic for a cute little cuddly friend like Dart. Oh, wait… he wasn’t so cuddly, huh? Hmmm… well, Think Geek has made that alien aberration a whole lot snugglier, thank goodness!

kpki_stranger_things_dart_nesting_plush

These cute little guys are actually nesting dolls! They go from pollywog to slug to demodog! Aren’t they precious?

 

Did you forget Dad last week for Father’s Day? Don’t sweat it! Tell him his gift “got lost in the mail” and quickly order him this awesome Batman-inspired grilling set!

ksgl_batman_3_pc_bbq_tool_set

There’s also a Captain America set and a Wonder Woman set! Because, us ladies like a nice steak, too!

 

As a kid, I had an irrational fear that there were sharks lurking under the grates in the community pool (thanks a lot, Kid-From-When-I-Was-In-The-Second-Grade for telling me that!). However, this is a shark I could totally swim with:

This shark is not one to fear but to float! Its big enough for me to laze around in the pool while also blocking the sun so I can chillax without getting red! Woo!

 

Now that summer is in full swing, moms everywhere are starting to lose their minds because their kids just have SO. MUCH. FRICKIN’. ENERGY. Seriously, do they EVER stop?! Thankfully, Perpetual Kid has a way to keep them entertained for hours while getting them to use up all that energy!

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!

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*

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

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!

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! 

836979bad7b1932a5f8622b49059f4ff

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:

b58df2650596572ddf9cde3f3eb445b7

 

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! 

1bf1fc697e2967175c5fb6f41bf8ce8c

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:
