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. 🙂
