5 Fandom Friday: 5 Fandom Tattoos I Have/Want

5fandomfriday-1 copy

It’s been a really long time since I’ve participated in 5 Fandom Friday, but today’s prompt was a fun one that I couldn’t pass up. It’s about fandom tattoos, which is something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately (number 3 on my list in particular). But alas. Tattoos are effing expensive, so I need to put my ink dreams to the side for “adulting” things.

1. Jingles from Disneyland’s King Arthur’s Carrousel

This is my one and only tattoo so far, and I like to call it my obscure hipster Disney tattoo because it’s pretty inconpicuous. It was designed and tattoed by Jen Lee at Tattoo City in San Francisco. I’ve always had a love of all things equine and Disney, and the first piece of writing I ever had published involved carousels, so it made sense to get Jingles, the lead horse on King Arthur’s Carrousel, as my first tattoo.

2. A portrait of Rory

Not quite a fandom tattoo as Rory is my dog furry baby, but I love him so much! His name came from Doctor Who anyway, so I guess it’s fandom-y enough.

3. Hufflepuff badger with a fancy Deathly Hallow

I really, really, really want a tattoo dedicated to my Hufflepuff pride! Ever since I came across a badger tattoo done by Kiki Burghardt on Instagram, I knew that she was the one that had to do it. I already have a good idea of what I want it to look like too; I want it to be surrounded by leaves (kinda like the design above by Veronica Guzzardi) and yellow flowers, and somehow have the Deathly Hallows be incorporated. I’m unable to locate the picture of the badger tattoo I originally saw by her, but you guys should totally check out her Instagram! I want the Deathly Hallows part to be detailed with filigree or something like that. I found a picture on Pinterest a few years ago that would be perfect! But I want mine to be different because I don’t want to straight up copy the person who already has the tattoo.

(Deathly Hallows tattoo found here)

4. “Make Good Art” in Gallifreyan

My friends and I have talked about getting BFF tattoos in Gallifreyan for a few years. At first it was something me and my ex talked about before we started dating. It was brought up again when I got my Jingles tattoo, and my friends said, “F*ck him. We can all get Gallifreyan BFF tattoos instead!” All of ours would have different sayings that means something to us, but the fact that it’s Gallifreyan will help keep in theme with the BFF-yness of it all. I want mine to say “Make good art” which is something Neil Gaiman said in a very inspiration commencement speech about 3 years ago. It’ll be a constant reminder for me to stay creative and make good art, whether it be writing or jewelry making. I found this particular design here.

5. BB-8/R2-D2

After watching The Force Awakens, I couldn’t get the thought of getting BB-8 and R2 tats on my calves! At first I thought about getting them as tattoos on either thigh, but then decided calves would be a better location. How cute would that be?! Star Wars is one of my beloved fandoms and I’ve been trying to think of what character I would want as a tattoo. I’m a Dark Side girl, but I wasn’t really crazy about the idea of a Darth Vader tattoo. I thought about a Storm Trooper in Elizabethan era garb or in Victorian era fashion. But the droids are just so damn cute! I came across this art print of BB-8 by Michelle Coffee and would want it to look something like it.

Do you have any fandom tattoos or are thinking about getting one? Let’s talk about it in the comments section! 😀

5 Fandom Friday: Favorite Fictional Teachers

5fandomfriday-1 copy

Today’s 5 Fandom Friday prompt has us heading back to school with our favorite fictional teachers. I had a bit of a hard time coming up with a few, and even thought “what if I just change this to 5 things I love about Indiana Jones?” because he’s seriously all I kept thinking about for this prompt. Haha!

Here’s what I managed to come up with:

✿ Indiana Jones from the Indiana Jones series

Me thinks there is no need for an explanation on this one.

✿ Minerva McGonagall from the Harry Potter series

Professor McGonagall is probably the kind of professor that would intimidate the hell out of me and make me want to excel in all my classes just so I could impress her. And she’s a BAMFW (bad ass mother f*cking witch).

✿ Mr. Feeney from Boy Meets World

Feeney! Feeee-heh-heeee-naaaay! Mr. Feeney is so wise and has so much sass. How he put up with the Matthews brothers throughout their ENTIRE scholastic careers, I don’t know.

✿ Miss Frizzle from The Magic School Bus

If she were my teacher I would both dread and look forward to any field trip. Are we shrinking today? Are we gonna hang out with bugs? Are we gonna go up someone’s nose and explore the human body? Are we going to space? MUCH ADVENTURE. VERY EDUCATE. WOW.

Wait… why am I speaking like Doge so much now? Oh well, whatever.

✿ Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars

I re-watched the prequels not too long ago and I can’t help but have more respect for Obi-Wan because he’s so damn patient! Like, here he is trying to fulfill his mater’s dying wish to train young Anakin, but Annie’s a little whiney boo-hoo boy (for reasons that are completely understandable, but still) that constantly defies him. And though I align myself with the dark side of the Force, I can’t help but feel for Obi-Wan. HOW COULD YOU ANNIE?! MUCH BETRAYAL!

Who are your favorite fictional teachers? Lemme know in the comments section. 😀

5 Fandom Friday: My Ideal Apocalypse Dream Team

I’m back with another 5 Fandom Friday! Let’s see if I can actually keep up and do each and every single prompt for October. Today’s theme is to share 5 people I’d love to have by my side during the apocalypse. I thought this was going to be a tricky list to come up with, but it was actually quite easy!

The Doctor from Doctor Who

I’d want the Doctor by my side because he always manages to get out of sticky situations, so the apocalypse should be no big deal to him. And he can always relocate me and the rest of our team elsewhere in time and space via the TARDIS. Hooray for loopholes!

Ron Swanson from Parks & Recreation

Ron Swanson knows how to survive out in the wilderness, so when we land on another planet or different time to get away from the end of the world he’ll be able to hunt for food and figure out how to create a shelter in case when the Doctor leaves us (because the Doctor is unpredictable and will come and go at the drop of a hat).

Captain America

Let’s be honest, Mama needs some eye candy! And I would also want someone with a sunnier disposition than the Doctor and Ron Swanson that can also hold their own.

✿ Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series

Hermione is the brightest witch around, and you know Harry and Ron would totes be dead if she wasn’t there to help them out. In the event of an apocalypse, I’m more than sure Hermione would know what to do and be completely prepared for anything.

Buffy Summers from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

I mean… she’s the mother flippin’ vampire slayer. She can do anything, including saving all of our asses from an apocalypse. I would be incredibly stupid to not want her by my side!

Who would you want by your side if the end of the world was nigh? Let me know in the comments!

cheers

5 Fandom Friday: Favorite Fandom Phrases

5fandomfriday-1 copy

 

Quotes and phrases from TV shows, movies, and whatnot tend to find their way into the everyday vernacular of each fangirl. You know it’s true! Today’s 5 Fandom Friday prompt is centered around our favorite fandom phrases, but I decided to go with the ones I tend to quote the most.

So without further ado, here are my favorite phrases to use in my everyday life:

“This drink. I like it. ANOTHER!”- Thor

I constantly say this when I eat or drink something that I find super tasty, like frozen horchatas from Puesto. Mmmm! ANOTHER!

“Treat yo self.” – Tom Haverford & Donna Meagle from Parks & Recreation

I think this is the one I say the most. When I know I’m about to go on a major shopping bender, I’ll justify it by saying, “TREAT YO SELF. –wherever I happen to be at– EDITION!” or whatever. Sometimes I’ll blurt out the item I’m getting and say “treat yo self!” enthusiastically like Donna and Tom (in the clip above). And if a friend is feeling indecisive about buying something, I’ll enable them by saying “treat yo self.” ☺

“It’s a trap!” – Admiral Ackbar from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

I say this when something looks iffy, or too good to be true. Like certain sales — have you seen Hot Topic’s latest one where you can save 30% off all the clothes you can fit inside of a backpack and get 30% off the backpack too? IT’S A TRAP! It’s an elaborate ruse to get all your monies!

“I want to go to there.” – Liz Lemon from 30 Rock

Of all the Liz Lemonisms, this is the one I say the most. I say it when I see an article on the interwebs of a place I want to go to (the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!), or if someone tells me about some place with food that sounds stupid delicious and amazing, or if I see some hot dude.

Anything from Mean Girls

What quote from Mean Girls isn’t applicable to every day life? If your friend does something great? “YOU GO GLEN COCO!” Or if you want to go somewhere, but your friend says they can’t go with you? “Boo, you whore.” I like sending gifs of that via text too. Hehehe ☺. When you pick up a friend to go somewhere? “Get in loser. We’re going shopping.” When someone that’s not applicable to a certain situation butts in? “SHE DOESN’T EVEN GO HERE.” The possibilities are endless and so fetch.

What are some of your favorite fandom phrases? Share them in the comments!

5 Fandom Friday: Fictional Pets I’d Love to Adopt

5fandomfriday-1 copy

I’m pretty excited about this Friday’s prompt because it involves something I really, really, really, love: ANIMALS!!! Or to be more specific, pets. The first pet I ever had was a goldfish named Figaro that went belly-up before you could say “Jiminy Cricket.” Then there’s was bird named Cucu, but I consider Rory to be my first legit pet. I think of him more as my furry son, but that’s because I’m a crazy dog lady. So it’s no big surprise that all the fictional pets on my list are all dogs… except one. 🙂

✿ Wishbone

I loved Wishbone sooo much when I was a kid. The show combined two of my favorite things: dogs and books! Wishbone’s love of stories definitely further enhanced my love of reading as a youngin’, plus he’s cute as hell. I think that’s reason enough to want to adopt him.

✿ Dug from Up

Dug is super lovable and I’d be able to have legit conversations with him because he can talk back!

✿ Ghost from Game of Thrones

Jon Snow’s faithful dire wolf would be an ideal pet because he’s extremely loyal and would protect me from all kinds of creeps. And if my friends found themselves in grave peril, he’d come to their rescue too. 🙂

✿ K-9 from Doctor Who

I know he’s a robot, but he’s still a dog. And like Dug, he can talk. Sometimes I need someone to talk to when other human beings aren’t around, okay?

✿ Rajah from Aladdin

Princess Jasmine’s big ‘ol tiger has been one of my favorite Disney pets ever since the movie came out (which was a long ass time ago)! I actually still have the stuffed Rajah I got for Christmas back in ’93 too. Anyway, I think Rajah would be an ideal nap buddy (he’s so big and fluffy!), and help me ward off unwanted male suitors.

What fictional pets would you like to adopt? Let me know in the comments!

5 Fandom Friday: Fictional Vehicles I’d Love to Travel In

5fandomfriday-1 copy

It’s Friday, which means it’s time for another installment of 5 Fandom Friday! Today I’m going to be sharing what 5 fictional vehicles I’d love to travel in, so let’s get started!

✿ The TARDIS

 

DUH! This has got to be on everyone’s list, right?! I want to travel in the TARDIS because it can go anywhere in space and time! I’d ask the Doctor to take me back in time to see Queen and The Police in concert because how cool would it be to see Freddie Mercury, the greatest vocalist of all time, perform live?!

✿ The Batmobile

I feel like I need to be specific with what model of the Batmobile I’d prefer to travel in, because the one from the Christopher Nolan movies is just… a baby tank. I’m gonna go with the 1960s a la Adam West because it’s the first form of the Batmobile I was ever introduced to. Plus I like the bubbly windshield. 🙂

✿ The Bus (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.)

When it’s not under attack, the Bus looks like a fun place to be. And Agent May could just put it on auto-pilot and teach me how to kick ass in the Bus’ gym. I wanna be Agent May when I grow up! Is it too late for that?

✿ The Millennium Falcon

Because it’s the mother effin’ Millennium Falcon, that’s why!

✿ The back of Steve Rogers’ motorcycle 

To be specific, I would like to ride on the back of Steve Roger’s motorcycle while Steve Rogers himself (Chris Evans version) is in control of the vehicle. Hehehehehe – insert heart eye emojis –

cheers

5 Fandom Friday: My Favorite Swag from SDCC

I can’t believe it’s already been a week since Comic-Con happened! I’m still trying to recover from it. Going back to work was R O U G H, you guys. There were a few times I woke up in the morning feeling like a sack of garbage and was tempted to call in sick to sleep a bit more. But I didn’t. Thank goodness I don’t work Fridays though. WOO! So today’s theme for 5 Fandom Friday is to share some of our favorite pieces of swag we got at a convention. Since SDCC just happened, I’m sharing the best things I scored!

1. Agent Carter poster

This is the one freebie that I truly cared about obtaining, and it was bitch trying to get it. I went to the Marvel booth a few times, but they never had it when I’d go there. I asked the workers if they would be passing them out, and each time they answered with, “Yes, later today. I don’t know what time, but check back later.” UGH. I always asked very politely too (because I’m a Hufflepuff, duh), but they were quite bitchy. It’s like, okay, I understand that this is probably the millionth time you’ve been asked that question today, but if someone is being polite as hell the least you could do is try and be courteous. Am I right?

I went to the ABC booth on Sunday and my friend asked one of the workers if they had any Agent Carter posters there, and they were super nice about it and checked for us. And they did have them! So I finally got one after I did the photo booth thingy that they had at their boothw. YAY!

2. Photo booth pictures

I took A LOT of photo booth pics during SDCC. Pixster was at both the Geeks Go Glam and SherlockeDCC parties I went to, and my bloggy buddies and I had way too much fun hamming it up in front of it. And at the ABC booth they had photo booth with a random generator — characters that you could possibly take a picture with were Miss Piggy, Animal, Fozzie Bear from The Muppets or Regina from Once Upon a Time. I was freaking out because I was so worried that I’d get Regina. Although she’s one of my favorites on the show, I REALLY wanted to take a picture with a Muppet. I was beyond relieved when I got Animal. 😀

3. Pins/buttons

I got some really cool buttons and pins this year! At the Tsum Tsum booth they passed out envelopes with pins after you take a picture at either of their photo ops. There were a total of 24 pins that you could collect, but who has time to do that? I managed to get Minnie and my absolute favorite Lady. I also got some free Star Wars pins from Loungefly (only Darth Vader is pictured), a button from Sam Maggs’ book signing that says “I’m the Doctor, Not the Companion,” an exclusive AT-AT pin from Think Geek with my purchase, and an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Secret Warriors pin. 🙂

4. Legend graphic novel by Mari Lu

My sister is a huge fan of Marie Lu’s Legend series and I decided to go to book signing with her since she’d be signing free copies of the graphic novel adaptation of Legend. I love graphic novels, especially since my attention span isn’t as great as it used to be when it comes to reading (I get SO distracted), so I’m really excited to start reading it.

5. Personalized Coke can

Over at Nerd HQ they had a machine where you can personalize your own Coke can! You could make two at a time so I wanted to make one that said Peggy Carter and Captain America… except it wouldn’t let me. RUGH. So I made one with Peggy and kind of panicked for the second one and just did my name. After I left I was like, “I COULD’VE MADE ONE THAT SAID STEVE” (for Captain America’s civilian name). Oh well. At least I now have a little Coke can with my name on it (despite the fact that I bought a Diet Coke bottle bearing my name last month).

Were you at Comic-Con this year too? Let me know what your favorite freebies were this year! And if you didn’t go, feel free to leave whatever kind of comment! 🙂
