Nerdy 30 Birthday Wish List

My 30th birthday is in 2 days! AAAHHHH!!! Some people call it the “dirty 30.” Others call it the “flirty 30.” Since I am neither (well, maybe more dirty than flirty regarding my sense of humor), I am calling this birthday my “nerdy 30” because it makes so much more sense. And I’ll be at Disneyland to celebrate, because what better place to kick off 30th anniversary of life? 🙂

I threw a little birthday wish list together and as you can see, all I want are Star Wars, Marvel, and Harry Potter things (mainly books)! I’m not expecting to get any of these things, but y’know… it’s just a wish list.

Who else has a birthday in January that’s coming up or has passed? Lemme know what’s on your wish list or what you’ve gotten for your birthday in the comments section!

cheers

5 Fandom Friday: Favorite Aliens

Holy crap, I haven’t participated in 5 Fandom Friday since April! – insert shocked emoji here

I have no excuse as to why I stopped doing it for so long, but it’s a brand new month filled with a bunch of new prompts, so why not start again today? For this prompt, I’ll be sharing who my favorite extraterrestrials are! I thought this list was going to be easy, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized I actually don’t have that many. x__x

So here we go. My favorite aliens are…

1. The 11th Doctor

This is a no brainer. The 11th Doctor is my absolute favorite incarnation of the Doctor because he’s very bumbly and just so childlike and serious all at once. That automatically lands him a spot on my list. 🙂

2. Stitch a.k.a. Experiment 626

Sure, Stitch causes chaos and destruction wherever he goes (since that was what he was originally created for), but how can you not love that cute French Bulldog-ish face of his? And his perfect impression of Elvis?

3. Lumpy Space Princess

OH MY GLOB, YOU GUYS. While brainstorming for possible favorite aliens, Lumpy Space Princess came to mind. I mean, she’s from SPACE. She counts as an alien… right?

4. Admiral Ackbar

I’ve been trying to think of why I like Admiral Ackbar so much, and I believe I have finally figured it out. One of my worst fears is to be trapped somewhere, or to just be stuck in general without a way of getting out. Admiral Ackbar would warn me if something is a trap or not. I don’t care if he’s fictional, he has my back!

5. Marvin the Martian

This cantankerous Martian has been one of my favorites for the longest time, so I had to give him a spot for nostalgia’s sake. 🙂

Who are your favorite aliens? Lemme know in the comments section!

cheers

5 Fandom Friday: My Favorite Fandom Accessories

5 fandom 2

 

Happy Friday, my little ponies! I’m super stoked about this week’s 5 Fandom Friday as it’s fashion related. Woo! To say it was pretty tough just trying to pick five of my favorite fandom related accessories is an understatement — I have sooo many baubles and doo-dads to choose from, so it was a ridiculous. #firstworldgeekproblems

I mean, I didn’t call my blog Le Fancy Geek for nothin’! Anyhow here are the ones I decided to feature for this post:

1. Admiral Ackbar statement necklace by Rockets & Rainbows

I don’t know why, but I just love Admiral Ackbar! Is it his name? The fact that he’s a huge piece of calamari? Or the fact that it’s so fun to say his infamous “IT’S A TRAP” line? Perhaps it’s all these things. But what I do know is that when I first saw this Admiral Ackbar necklace (made out of an old Mirco Machines toy) in Jennifer Landa‘s Etsy shop, Rockets & Rainbows, I knew I had to have it!

I also did an outfit post a couple years ago with it, you can check it out here.

2. Loki necklace by Trinket Slot

I made an immediate beeline when I spotted this Loki necklace from across the way at Trinket Slot‘s booth at Anime Expo last year! I love how it allows me to subtly show off my allegiance to Loki’s Army,  and also the fact the helmet has a heart in it.♡

If you’d like one for yourself, you can get it here.

3. Chewbacca ring

I am sooo in love with this ring! I remember seeing a post on Pinterest with a Stormtrooper, Boba Fett, and Vader ring too, but no indication as to where one could buy such epic finger trinkets. RUGH! But when I went to Portland last year, I visited a store (can’t remember what it’s called, sorry) and I saw the same exact rings!!! It took me awhile to figure out which one I should get, but ultimately decided Chewbacca was the best choice.  Plus I have a lot of Darkside swag anyway. Gotta keep balance in the Force, y’know?

4. Minnie Mouse ears

How could I not include an accessory from Disney a.k.a. my biggest fandom of all?! Mouse ears are so much fun, I wish it was acceptable to wear them everywhere besides Disney parks, conventions, Halloween, etc. Like, can’t I just come to work and be taken seriously while wearing them?

5. Hufflepuff infinity scarf 

When my sister told me she was crocheting scarves for Christmas last year, I got all excited and said exclaimed, “I WANT A HUFFLE PUFF SCARF!!!” But she told me she already bought all the yarn she was going to use for everyone. Sigh. Come Christmas morning I found that she was already a step ahead of me. She even made a little one for Rory! I’m pretty sure if he put the Sorting Hat on, he’d be placed in Hufflepuff too. 🙂

What are your favorite fandom accessories? Lemme know in the comments!

If at first you don’t succeed…

Well… I didn’t find much success at yesterday’s craft faire. To be honest, my expectations weren’t too high. I had never been to Rio Linda before until after dropping off my application in person at the Community Center last week. It’s a small town, from what I saw it kind of had a Pawnee (from Parks & Recreation) vibe. I wasn’t too sure if there’d be many geeky folks in attendance, so I made tons of Downton Abbey necklaces just in case since that’s the least geekiest thing I have in my inventory.  I still hoped to sell at least a few necklaces there… five at the least. Technically, I did reach my goal. Tim and his bff/roomie Sam bought two necklaces each the night before when we were doing inventory and then I sold one at the faire — the 10th Doctor with a kitty cat >^__^<

I don’t feel completely defeated by it though. I don’t think all the prep work I did days beforehand were for naught (holy crap, did I bust my ass working on getting things ready for this faire!). It was an interesting experience, and I did get some interest from a few  people that actually knew where my things were from (Once Upon a Time, Doctor Who, Ron Swanson, etc)!

I’m still surprised that only one person took me up on my free candy offer though. Just take my left over Halloween candy, people! o__0

I’m hoping to open up my Etsy store again this coming weekend. I’ll let you all know when it’s ready to go! And in the meantime, I’m going to look into vending at places where my goods will appeal to a bigger majority of the audience in attendance. 🙂

Cheers,
Nina

PS: A big ‘ol shout out to Tim and my mom for helping me out! Thank you both immensely for supporting me and my crafty endeavors 😀

IT’S A [FLORAL] TRAP!

outfit details – dress + ring: ModCloth (buy here and here // shoes: American Rag // glasses: Derek Cardigan (buy here) // hair flower: Icing (buy here) // necklace: Rockets and Rainbows (buy here)

Hello kitties!

I’m going to start calling you guys kitties now, is that okay? Yeah? Okay, cool. I knew you’d dig it! >^__^<

It’s weird how having a part time job manages to keep you away from certain things. For example: this blog ‘o mine! I’ve also been working on a special project for my supervisor’s daughter’s birthday party t00, but I managed to sneak in a little photo shoot before I went to work the other day. And I damn near had a panic attack when my tripod broke on me AGAIN. But I managed to fix it once more, so let’s hope it stays that way. *crosses fingers — only on one hand though because apparently it’s bad luck to cross them on both and I’m superstitious like that*

Anyhow, for years I have drooled over the beautiful dresses on ModCloth, and now that I have a steady paycheck coming in every Friday I found that I was finally able to [barely] afford one! I purchased this pretty mint and pinkie peachy floral number for my cousin’s wedding which took place a couple weeks ago. This also happens to be the dress I put on my Wishful Wednesdays post last month. Look at me, making all my wishes come true! I’m super excited that I was able to get this dress in my possession because it keeps selling out pretty quickly! *happy dance* ModCloth literally has one more left in stock (at the time of this post anyhow)!  I paired the dress with my purple t-strap heels from American Rag and this incredibly fabulous Admiral Ackbar locket created by the uber geektastic Jennifer Landa! 🙂 I brought a vintage cameo necklace with me as another option, but when I asked what necklace to wear Admiral Ackbar was the unanimous victor. Florals + SciFi is always a winning combination!

I also wore this outfit to work and it took everything in me to not spin around in circles while standing around waiting to greet customers because this dress seriously has some crazy amazing flow to it! And it also makes me feel like a princess since it kind of reminds me of the dress Giselle made out of curtains in Enchanted.

Posts here may be sparse during June and July since I picked up a lot of hours for my other part time job as a tutor. I’m gonna have so much fun balancing everything out. Yaaaay adulthood! /sarcasm

I’m going to do my very best on updating Le Fancy Geek though! I hope you kitties stick with me 🙂

Cheers,
Nina
