Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday New Background3

 

My little cousin is getting married this weekend, so I’ve had weddings on the brain for the last week or so. And, with it being summer and the season of weddings, I thought I would feature some awesome Etsy shops that carry everything and bride and groom would need for their nerdy nuptials!

 

Need a Save the Date that shows your love for comic books as well as your groom? Awkward Affections has what you need!

Comic Book Wedding Invite

 

Or maybe you’re looking for something a little more retro, like these invitations from The Inked Leaf:

Nintendo Wedding Invites

 

You’ll absolutely need something geeky to throw back the champagne! Glass Cannons has the goblets for you!

Frankenstein and Bride Topper

 

Splendorlocity has cake toppers for couples that are “out of this world”:

Doctor Who Wedding Cake Topper

 

Jessichu Creations can mix-and-match fandoms for those “houses divided”:

Jedi and Hermione Topper

 

And Inked Icing can add a “Red Wedding” flair to your big day (minus the gore):

And you can’t forget to bring a gift for the bride and groom! Head on over to Biterswit for a one-of-a-kind present for the new couple!

ET Address Stamp

 

 

Happy fangirling!

 

 

Fan Girl Friday

Its Friday, peeps! And we are in the homestretch in the countdown to Christmas. The big day is in less than TWO weeks! TWO WEEKS!

Do you have your shopping done? No?!

Well, have no fear! I am here to help you find the perfect gift for that special someone on your list!

For the Teacher:

Crayon Cologne. Doesn’t every teacher just love the smells of school? Freshly sharpened pencils, sweaty kids piling in from recess, and ah yes, broken Crayolas!

crayon perfume

 

This eau de school supplies is only $19.99 from Perpetual Kid! And if this scent doesn’t tickle your fancy, there’s others! Lobster, graham crackers, birthday cake, and popcorn just to name a few!

 

For the Hostess:

Party Plates! Also from PK, these plates are perfect for the friend in your life that just won’t stop throwing parties! “Wanna come celebrate my cat’s bar mitzvah? There’ll be food!”

The plates come in a variety of colors and sets of 5! They’re perfect for stabilizing food and drink (and it even has a separate area to put moist foods for any OCD party-goers!)

 

For the Whovian:

Sonic salad forks (and spoons and knives)!

DW cutlery

 

These awesome cutlery sets from Think Geek would be a great addition to your Whovian pal’s table setting! They’re great for digging into fish fingers and custard!

 

I’ll have more gift ideas next week, but I’ll end on some movie news! JJ Abrams has FINALLY released the names of his characters (besides the obvious) for Star Wars Episode 7!

Here are the names of some of the main characters:

 

What do you think? Like the names? I have to admit, I’m a little disappointed. Rey and Finn aren’t that..”sci-fi-ish” I was hoping for something along the lines of Lando or Ackbar.

Happy Friday, Doctor Who Eve!

That’s right, the moment we Whovians have been waiting MONTHS for is FINALLY here!

Tomorrow night we will be able to see the first episode with new Doctor, Peter Capaldi! I know some of us are sad to Matt Smith go (though, admittedly, I was more broken-hearted about the loss of David Tennant) its going to be really great to see a new incarnation of The Doctor!

 

And, I have everything you need to make your weekend fit for a Whovian!

 

Soak up the sun with this 4th Doctor-inspired towel from Think Geek! And, even better? It’s on sale! Woo!

Keep calm and carry a towel.

If you’re of age and want to give the premiere of Doctor Who a little Mad Men flair, try this Tardis-tini!

Cheers! Or should I say, "Allonsy!"?

Or, bake up some imitation fish fingers and custard!

Seconds, please, Pond.

*Bonus Fan Girl Friday find:

I know that its not Who-themed, BUT, this week everyone’s favorite fanboy director gave us a charge to donate to Force for a Change/UNICEF, as well as a sneak peek at one of the new X-Wing’s (even though the wings no longer make an X) from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII! Check it out!

Go donate, people! You could be helping make someone else’s life better AND possibly be able to visit the set! That’s every fangirl/fanboy’s DREAM!

Fan Girl Friday

Did you hear the news, people?!

You didn’t?! Okay, so, get this: remember how I told you a while back that Matt Smith is leaving after the Christmas Special? Well, BBC1 released a statement earlier this week, saying that the new Doctor will be revealed THIS Sunday! I haven’t been this excited about an announcement from Britain since Kate Middleton went into labor!

In honor of the newest Doctor’s unveiling this weekend, today’s’ Fan Girl Friday is all about the Mad Man with the Blue Box!

Whilst wasting time on Pinterest when I should’ve been sleeping, I found an awesome sight that has the top 10 pieces of furniture inspired by the Tardis! I really want the outdoor shed! (But I need a backyard first!)

Its cozier on in the inside.

I’m LOVING this tee from Think Geek! Its not overly Whovian, which is great because if you wore it out and about, you’d be able to tell a true fan from a layman. And, as we all know, nothing equates instant friendship like some random person coming up to you at WalMart and saying: “Allonsy!”

 

"I'm the Doctor."; "Doctor who?"'; "Precisely."

“I’m the Doctor.”; “Doctor who?”‘; “Precisely.”

 

Not a Whovian? Have a friend who hasn’t experienced the pure joy/sadness/fear/excitement of the Who-verse? Need some help converting them? No need to fear! I came across a great article that lists 5 episodes that will turn any Who-skeptic into a Whovian! (No pamphlets or bicycles required!) The list is actually pretty good, but I think I would add Don’t Blink. That episode scared me into loving DW.

 

"I'm the Doctor, and I just snogged Madame de Pompudor!"

“I’m the Doctor, and I just snogged Madame de Pompudor!”

 

Sidebar: The very first episode of Doctor Who I ever watched was The Girl in the Fireplace. Pretty much one of the greatest episodes EVER and it really makes you love Ten with both hearts.

 

Are you excited about the big announcement? Do you have any suggestions for the new Doctor? Not going to lie, I hope its not a girl and I hope he’s ginger. He’s been waiting SO long to be ginger! Rupert Grint, you’re not doing anything, right? Why don’t you lace up the Converse and hop in the Tardis?
