Denver Comic Con 2016:THE OUTFITS

Denver Comic Con is getting closer everyday, so that means it's time to start thinking about what I'm going to wear. Since I go as press--and because sewing is my bane--I like to go to DCC in everyday cosplay. For last year's convention, I ended up choosing to dress in Heisenberg everyday cosplay and Scarlet Witch … Continue reading Denver Comic Con 2016:THE OUTFITS

Everyday Cosplay: Ygritte and Jon Snow

One of my favorite couples on Game of Thrones was Ygritte the Wilding and Jon Snow, a member of the Night's Watch. I loved those two so much together. I mean, look at these two adorable kiddos (caution, spoilers after the gif): There chemistry is electric whenever the two are onscreen (I guess they're actually … Continue reading Everyday Cosplay: Ygritte and Jon Snow

Everyday Cosplay: Dragon

I've kind of been on a dragon kick lately, ever since the Fandom 5 prompt from last week had me dreaming about adopting a dragon of my very own. Because of that, I decided to dream up an everyday cosplay look to pay homage to one of my favorite fictitious creatures. Complete with a dragon … Continue reading Everyday Cosplay: Dragon

The Coolest (but sadly, fictional) Jobs from TV and Movies

Movies and television often give us unrealistic expectations. Whether its about life, love, or what kind of apartment we can afford (seriously how the hell did the Friends gang afford such a kickin' place in NYC?!?), we're forever confused about what is actually attainable vs. what seems to be attainable because of movies. I'll be … Continue reading The Coolest (but sadly, fictional) Jobs from TV and Movies

5 Fandom Friday: Fictional Pets I Want to Adopt

I have to admit, I have a pretty amazing pet. He's a chiweenie (a real breed, yes, it's a chihuahua/dachsund mix), and his name is Chaucer--you all know who Chaucer is, right? English literature lessons that led to the nerdy naming of my dog aside, he's a great dog. We rescued him from the pound when … Continue reading 5 Fandom Friday: Fictional Pets I Want to Adopt

Everyday Cosplay: Missandei

It's finally starting to feel like summer around here, so I thought I'd do an everyday cosplay look that works in the hot weather, and pays homage to one of the kindest, wisest, and, of course, best-dressed ladies in the Seven Kingdoms, Missandei. Besides, if you saw the Game of Thrones finale (don't worry, no … Continue reading Everyday Cosplay: Missandei

Denver Comic Con 2015 Roundup

And just like that, another Denver Comic Con is in the books. This year's con was completely amazing, but man, I am zonked. Exhausted or not, I had the BEST time. Last year's con was marvelous, but I feel like they only stepped their game up this year. certainly crowded, but this year it felt especially packed. It was … Continue reading Denver Comic Con 2015 Roundup

Sunday is Mother's Day, so to celebrate motherhood in general, this week's Fandom 5 is all about celebrating those amazing fictional mommas. Here are my five faves: Morticia Addams Morticia, in both the TV show and the movies, lived an unconventional lifestyle.

Everyday Cosplay: Daenerys Targaryen

Last year, I attended a Game of Thrones-themed birthday party. One of the requests of the hosts was that we come dressed as a character, but everyday cosplay style rather than going all out. I immediately called dibs on Daenerys, because, I mean, come on.. ...Dany is awesome. Who wouldn't want to dress up like … Continue reading Everyday Cosplay: Daenerys Targaryen

5 Fandom Friday: Favorite Pop Funko Figures

Happy Friday, nerds! I'll be honest, I'm not a huge collector outside of books. Being a military brat, I have a sort of natural aversion to keeping too many tchotckes around the house. However, there is just something about Funko dolls that I cannot get over. They are just too cute, and I love putting them … Continue reading 5 Fandom Friday: Favorite Pop Funko Figures
