A Shiny Wish List for SDCC

Brace yourselves, COMIC-CON IS COMING.

In the past years I haven’t been a wise shopper. Just because something is “exclusive” doesn’t necessarily mean I must own it, right? I’m going to attempt to be a bit more strict on what I spend my precious monies on this time around, but there are some exclusives that have me doing the heart-eye emoji BIG TIME.

Sparkly Darth Vader coin purse by Loungefly

How fabulous is this sparkly Darth Vader coin purse?! I have a ton of coin purses at home, and I actually just took all my coins to the bank to cash them, buuut… I mean… this would be a practical purchase. <— it’s DARTH VADER. Of course I’m trying to justify my want for it!

OMG SO SHINY. I don’t think I need to explain why I want this. I mean… look at it!

  • Unmasked Captain America Pop! Figure by Funko

This little unmasked version of Captain America is too cute for words! It would be perfect to put alongside the Peggy Carter figure that’s coming out later this year too. Since Barnes & Noble will have a few Funko SDCC Exclusives, I’m asking my friend Jennifer to go and take a look to see if they have this little Cap figure so I won’t have to stand in that crazy long-ass line during the convention.

The 11th Doctor is my favorite Doctor and purple is my favorite color, so that’s a completely justifiable reason to want this adorable rendition of him, right?

Direwolves plush set by Factory Entertainment

Last year I was on a mad hunt for a Grey Wind plushie, except the only ones that were in the exhibit hall were all prototypes. UGH. This year Factory Entertainment has an exclusive set featuring little 6 inch versions of Grey Wind, Ghost, and Nymeria. AHH!! I just might cave, you guys. I just might. O__O

pretty much EVERYTHING at the Her Universe booth

So none of these are officially exclusive, at least not that I know of, but HOLYCRAP! Her Universe just released images of a few new items making their debut at SDCC and everything looks AMAZING!!! I’m particularly stoked for the Peter Pan collar Avengers top and Agent Carter t-shirt. I saw on Instagram that there won’t be any plus size Agent Carter tees available since they didn’t have enough shirts, but I’m hoping I’ll be able to squeeze into an XL. crosses fingers –

What swag are you most looking forward to getting your hands on?

I can’t believe Agent Carter is already going to have its season finale next Tuesday. UGH! And Parks & Rec is having their SERIES finale, but that’s an entirely different post! DOUBLE UGH.

I really hope that Agent Carter gets renewed for a second season because I need more Peggy Carter in life. Speaking of which, Barbara of You Fancy Me Mad is hosting a giveaway for one of my Peggy Carter necklaces on her blog! It’s open to all US residents, so be sure to check it out and enter here if you want to carry a bit of Peggy wherever you go. 😀

Anyhow, as you may have noticed this is an outfit post! Yeah, I know, I haven’t done one since my birthday. I’m working on it, I swear.

I picked up this Avengers icon dress from Her Universe during their Black Friday sale last November, and got it for 50% off. SCORE! I love how subtle it is with all the Avengers logos splayed all over it like a polka-dot pattern, and I can pretty much pair it with any pop of color I want. I usually wear it with a green cardigan and pair it with a Loki necklace, but I looked at it hanging in my closet one day and thought, “That would look hella cute with a pink motorcycle jacket!” Except, I don’t own a pink motorcycle jacket, so my pale pink cardigan (that I’ve had for 4 years) would have to suffice. Then I added my Peggy Carter necklace, put a rose clip in my hair, and threw one some black ballet flats, and VOILA! Super femme geek!

I really like the way this outfit turned out because it made me feel like a fancy geek. Ha! See what I did there? Te-he 😉

cheers

5 Fandom Friday: Stores I’d Love Throw All My Money At For Black Friday Deals

Screen-Shot-2014-09-25-at-7.48.24-AM

Black Friday is here, followed by Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday! I’m braving it out this weekend solely for the free Downton Abbey cups that World Market will be giving away all weekend (yeah, I know that’s ludicrous, but I love Downton Abbey and the cups are so cute!), but I’m mostly interested in shopping online because I won’t have to deal with crazy shoppers. So here are some of the places I’d love to throw all my money at!

1. Stay Home Club

Oh, Stay Home Club. All the merch on their web store just speaks to my soul as a self-professed disgruntled anti-social homebody. From now until midnight you can take 25% off your entire order, including gift cards! I’m definitley snagging the Stay Home dogs t-shirt that I’ve been eyeing for what feels like forever! The pup on the top looks like my little fluffers too. 😀

Be sure to use the code YEAHFRIDAY at checkout!

2. Her Universe

Tons of prices on geektastic fashions have been slashed mercilessly — some styles are even up to 60% off — and an adorable holiday Boba Fett pin comes with every purchase of $25 or more (while supplies last)! I’ve been eyeing the Avengers Icon Dress since they released it earlier this year and it’s on sale for $25 right now (normally $45)!!! Annnd, the Goodbye Raggedy Man tank I’ve been coveting is on sale for a whopping $15!

3. Think Geek

Think Geek if offering selected items for up to 60% off PLUS an additional 20% off orders $40+, 25% off orders $100+, and 30% off orders $100+! Talk about great savings, riiight?! One of the things I’m totally drooling over is the R2-D2 car charger which is $29.99 (originally $39.99). I honestly haven’t gone through the rest of the site to see what other amazing geeky things they have because I’m trying not to be THAT much of a masochist.

Use code ELFINSALE up until the 29th at 11:59 pm PST

4. Out of Print

I have a number of things from Out of Print and I love them just as much as the books they’re based on! Right now everything in their web store is 30% off! EVERYTHING. And they released some Where the Wild Things Are swag not too long ago and oh-my-gawd, I need them so! – cries – 

5. Clashist

I love Clashist’s outrageous t-shirts soooo effing much, but my bank account hates their prices. I do own their Ryan Gosling shirt which is by far the sexiest thing in my closet, and worth every penny! Up until 11:59 pm on the 29th, you can use these codes to save some $$$:

  • SANTABALLS off orders $230+
  • FROSTYBALLS off orders $130+
  • JINGLEBALLS off orders $55+

The t-shirts I’m absolutely drooling over are the Ron Swanson Breakfast tee, Bill Murray Dot tee, and the Wes Anderson Volume 1 tee.

Are you braving it out in the real world for some great deals or are you sticking with online sales? Let me know in the comments!

Cheers,
Nina

Curator’s Corner #3: Freddy Scribbles

I stumbled upon the art of Autumm Fredrickson, who goes by the moniker Freddy Scribbles, at Stockton Con last December. I was on the upper level looking below and saw someone flipping though her portfolio and was immediately drawn to the most adorable little print of Loki and I had to have it! It’s currently hanging above my bed 🙂 Freddy Scribbles art consists of many beloved characters from nerd culture — not only does she have the cutest Loki print, but she has all of the Avengers (even Nick Fury and Phil Coulson)! She also makes plushies called Cubies (kyoo-bees) and currently has The Hulk, Thor, Harley Quinn, and some Avengers keychains available in her store (pictured below).

I hope you all enjoy the art of Freddy Scribbles! Be prepared to say “awww!” 😀

Iron Man

Hawkeye and Black Widow

Captain America

Thor and Loki

The Hulk

Phil Coulson and Nick Fury

Hulk and Thor Cubies

White Phoenix

Vanellope Von Schweetz

Death and Delirium from Neil Gaiman’s “Sandman”

“The Doctor and Sexy”

Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn

Harley Quinn Holiday Cubie

Wonder Woman

You can follow Freddy Scribbles and check out the rest of her art on:

Happy Geekydays!

It’s 12/21/2012! Well, in my neck of the woods anyway. Some apocalypse this is. sigh

Anywho, last week while skimming through the paper (yep, we still read the printed word in this house) I saw that my town was going to hold another comic book convention on the 16th. I wrote about the first Stockton Con held in August on Imaginary Battles if you care to read about it.

This time around it was billed as a “Holiday Mini-Con,” and mini it was! I think my friends and I made our way around all the booths in half an hour, and then we left afterwards hence my lack of pictures. Wah wah wah.

I found some pretty cool things though and didn’t leave empty handed! 🙂

Miss Carlyfornia had a smorgasbord of cute accessories and clothes featuring nerdy prints and childhood favorites, some were made out of vintage bedsheets. Most of her jewelry consists of upcycled toys ranging from little Star Wars characters to ReMent foods. Her Jabba the Hutt ring is horribly adorable, isn’t it?! I got to chat with her a bit and we lamented on how it’s hard to stay original when people start to make the same things we do — this is why she doesn’t make little top hats anymore and I just found my first copycat on Etsy. le sigh

She doesn’t have an Etsy store, but she does custom orders! You can add her on Facebook too.

I came across a booth that had some customized Sonic Screwdrivers from Doctor Who that looked old and worn down. While looking at the 11th Doctor’s screwdriver, the vendor kept telling me all about it as if I had no idea what I was holding. I was like, “Sir, please. Do you not see Doctors 9, 10, and 11 on my shirt?” Obviously, he didn’t. He was a nice fellow though. And I forgot to take pictures of all the Sonic Screwdrivers (d’oh!), but I did manage to take a picture of this beautiful replica of the Doctor’s fob watch that’s just like the one from the episodes “Human Nature” and “The Family of Blood.”

The vendor said he could do better on the price (it was marked at either $65 or $75), but even if I could get it down to $50 or $45 I still wouldn’t have been able to afford it. 🙁

While on the upper level, I saw someone down below checking out Freddy Scribbles‘ portfolio and spotted a cutsey Loki print. I thought, “I MUST OWN THAT.” And it was only $10. HUZZAH! It’s up on my wall right underneath my Jenny Parks Doctor Mew print (who was also at the con, but I didn’t get to take a picture of her booth).

Freddy Scribbles also creates super adorable plushies called Cubis [kyoo-bees]. I love the little wing details on Thor’s helmet!

Another vendor I stumbled upon was Abby’s BowTique. Her handmade hair bows are all kinds of nerdtastic with the likes of old school Nintendo characters, Star Wars, Disney, and comic book heroes gracing each one little bow.

I ended up getting a Stormtrooper bow because, y’know… the darkside is just so appealing. Stormtrooper Burt is pictured above with my pretty bow.

Christmas is coming and the end is not nigh! Hope you all have an amazing weekend ahead of you 🙂

Cheers,
Nina
