Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday New Background1

 

Happy Friday, geeklings! I’ve got some fandom finds that’s sure to tickle your fancy! Let’s dive right in to the geeky gear! 

Y’all, I’m SO excited that Outlander is starting to really explode–mostly because there’s finally Sassenach swag!

Seriously, how adorable is Hot Topic’s new Outlander line?! It’s fit for a lady that likes her men red-haired and kilted! Ye kin? 

I’m not a big makeup girl. I mean, I wear the basics but only because I don’t want to scare the villagers when I attempt to leave the house with my two wildlings in tow. But I may need to practice so I can have a legit reason to buy these:

harry-potter-wand-brushes

Oh yes, those are Harry Potter makeup brushes! Each brush is designed to look like a character’s wand (lets just hope they don’t include the Elder Wand!). This will go great with the Butterbeer lip gloss from Shiro Cosmetics! 

Y’all know I love Disney, but this next couple LURVES Disney! Just check out their magical wedding!

The groom and bride, Ty and Ashley, got engaged just steps away from Cinderella’s castle and wanted their wedding to be a reflection of their Disney-mania. Ashley wore a gown from Alfred Angelo’s Disney line and their cake toppers were replicas of Carl and Ellie’s chairs from Up! To see more pics, click here! 

I’m fully convinced that no matter who wins the presidential election next month, we are on the verge of a zombie apocalypse. And, thanks to Think Geek, I’ll be prepared!

Fan Girl Friday

Another end to another week and MAN it feels good!

I’ve searched high and low, near and far to find you the ultimate list of fandom finds!

Summer is officially over, which means wedding season is officially (mostly) over. On one hand, I’m happy about that. On another, I’m a little sad that I wasn’t invited to a wedding at Disney World. Why? Well, besides the obvious (Mickey Mouse, Epcot, singing pirates) I want to see the AH-MAZING cakes like this one in person! Check out what the magicians over at the House of Mouse have cooked up:

How awesome is that?! The cake is able to project wrapped pictures on the cake and can even change to show where cake slices have been cut! Check out the Disney Wedding blog for more!

 

A few years ago, I was NOT at all into Zombies. That is, until I saw Zombieland. That was basically the genesis of my fascination with zombies. And, thankfully, there’s a sequel in the works!

zombieland 2

According to Cinema Blend, Ruben Fleischer (ZL’s director) is working with other execs and screenwriters to get a script going! Unfortunately, its unlikely that the original ensemble with make a reappearance. Sad panda.

 

Looking for a way to make pizza night just a little more fancy? Pillsbury.com has you covered! They recently perfected the art of pizza cakes. Yes, you read that right: pizza cakes.

I’m thinking this is the just the thing to bake for mine and Huff the hubs’ date night!

 

You guys know I have mad love for all things Harry Potter. I’ve read the books tons of times, I’ve been to midnight showings/releases, and I even named my daughter Hermione for goodness sakes! If ever there was an ultimate HP fan, its me. However, I think Menahem Asher Silva Vargas from Mexico City, Mexico has me beat.

hp

Homeboy has 3,097 pieces of Potter memorabilia! Yes, over 3K HP-themed figurines, stuffed animals, sweaters, flags, and so much more! His collection caught the attention of the folks at Guinness and is now on the books as the holder of the world’s largest Harry Potter collection! Merlin’s pants!

 

Speaking of fandoms, please don’t hurt yourself by rolling your eyes too hard at this next story.

I’m not ashamed to say that I have read all of the books in the Twilight series (multiple times) and went to all the midnight showings of the movies. Annnddd…. I threw a Breaking Dawn release party, complete with costumes. Having said that, I’m not as into the fangs from Forks as I used to be. I prefer my vamps from the East Coast (think: Mystic Falls, VA). But, for those of you who can’t get enough of Team Edward/Team Jacob, good news! They’re coming back! Well, sort of.

twilight

Lions Gate is partnering up with Twilight creator, Stephanie Meyer and will select five aspiring female directors to create short films in the Twilight universe! Whilst I could do without another screening of Bella, I think its awesome that LG and SM are trying to get young girls excited about film making. We need more female directors and storytellers…even if they make movies about an angsty teen whose in love with a centuries old vampire.

Writer Wednesday

Happy Hump Day, peeps!

Here’s today’s Writer Wednesday prompt:

prompt

 

It seems like everyone I know has some hidden–or not-so-hidden–talent. Huff the Hubs can play guitar, piano, and trumpet. My dad can build ANYTHING your imagination can come up with. My mother is a crochet ninja; my sister is a master baker; and practically everything my other sister touches turns to gold. So where does that leave me…?

I’ll tell you where: impressions.

No, not painting. Actual impressions. But not of people…of goats.

I honestly have no idea how this impression came about, but ever since I was about 12 years old, I found I was able to do a dead-on impression of a goat. So dead-on, in fact, that my friends would CONSTANTLY ask me to do the impression. In between classes, during assemblies, in the middle of church. You name it, a goat sound was heard.

Even now that I’m almost 30 (gulp) I’ll see friends from middle school and they’ll ask me to “Do the goat!”

I really wish I had a more productive talent/skill. Seriously, how far does a goat impersonator go in life? And how can I utilize my talent for the betterment of mankind? I mean, everyone I mentioned above would be GREAT to have around during the zombie apocalypse. But me? I’d probably be the first one sacrificed to save everyone else.

Oh well. At least the zombies would have something laugh about as they gnawed on my legs.

 

What’s your hidden talent? Is it embarrassing like mine? Or is it more practical?

Fan Girl Friday

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!

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!

What’s a Zombie to Do?

Warning!

{River Song voice}

Spoilers. 

If you haven’t watched the latest episode of The Walking Dead, do not read on. Unless you want some stuff ruined. But really, not that much happened. So I guess you can read on. If you daaaaare!

So far, this season of The Walking Dead has been pretty good. I mean, we finally got rid of Lori whining about everything and sleeping with everyone. We watched as Rick lost his mind and went Chuck Norris on some inmates. We breathed a sigh of relief when Carl left the house and actually did some good. And fangirls everywhere squealed with delight when Daryl cuddled with baby Judith.

After Michonne left Woodbury and Rick’s gang got Glen and Maggie back, I can’t help but feel as though the writers have started taking naps and using pages from the “How to Write for Soap Operas” handbook. I feel like nothing has really moved along and everyone’s at a stand still.

These last three episodes we have left better be some doozies. I want to see the bad guy get taken down and some zombies lose some limbs. I feel like those lifeless biters have really taken a back seat on the show. That’s why when I saw this, I cracked up and thought, “You got that right!”

Here is what I want to see before the season ends:

1. Andrea kill the Governor (and stop walking like an idiot).

andrea

I’m sorry, but I can’t stand the way Andrea walks. Her walk is so unbelievably uncoordinated, even the Ministry of Silly Walks wouldn’t give her a job.  She can redeem herself from her ridiculous saunter if she takes out the Governor. I love that Carol told her to give him a night he’d never forget and then kill him. She should’ve done it! Then Daryl could’ve given her a cool nickname like The Black Widow that everyone would laugh about over rainwater and canned peaches.

 

2. Merle save his brother and tell him he loves him with his dying breath. 

merle

In season one, I couldn’t stand Merle. Season 2, I forgot about him; but I couldn’t shake this feeling he was waiting in the wings. So when season 3 came along and Merle showed up I found that my feelings…well, the hadn’t changed a bit. Guy’s a douche. Especially after what he did to Glen. However  I do think that like Daryl, Merle will be able to redeem himself. Its obvious Merle loves his brother and would do just about anything for him. My prediction/hope is that Daryl will be cornered by one of the guys from Woodbury, only to be rescued by Merle. I honestly think Merle is going to give his life to save his brother and everyone will talk of Merle like a hero.

 

3. Herschel finds an artificial leg. 

"Let's have some sweet tea and talk about this on the porch."

“Let’s have some sweet tea and talk about this on the porch.”

It really freaks me out that Herschel has only some crutches to keep him up. I mean, seriously, he basically has a sign on his back that reads: “Zombie food, made to order!” I really like Herschel because I feel like he’s the only one that can bring Rick back from his crazy delusions about dead people calling him on the phone. Plus, I feel like Herschel fills the moral compass gap that Dale left when he got himself eaten.

 

4. Rick takes over Woodbury…. 

rick and governor

I’d really like to see the Governor dethroned and Rick take over the town. I think Rick could do a lot of good there. However, that would probably slow down the pace of the show, sort of like the farm did in season 2. However, Shane was still making problems and so was Lori, so season 2 wasn’t a total bust. But still, if Rick took over Woodbury, it’d be  great victory for him, but probably not so much for the show.

 

5. …Or they have to take their chances on the road. 

Seriously.

Seriously.

We didn’t get to see what the winter months were like for the prison folks. All we know is that they were constantly on the move. To be honest, I’ve kind of missed the days when they were constantly look for refuge. I felt like there was more action and zombie-killin’ when they were nomads. Plus, with Judith added to the mix, I could see many a bated breath in season 4.

 

No matter what happens, I’m sure I’ll still stay glued to the tube with at least one eye closed, waiting to see what happens next. Unless Daryl dies. Then I’ll stop watching. Just kidding, I probably won’t. I’ll keep watching just so I can triumphantly say things like, “SEE?! If Daryl were here, THAT wouldn’t’ve happened!” or “Gah! If only Daryl were here, he’d know what to do!”
