Boots, and too much cutes.

How is everyone’s Saturday going? Mark and I are going to be spending time with friends tonight, sitting around a smoky campfire, making s’mores, drinking beer, and having an awesome time. I hope you get to do some amazing things too this weekend, but in the mean time I’ve selected some cute items to show you guys that I just love!

My Fictional BFF’s

Ya I know, it’s Monday. But trying to keep up on these 5 Fandom Friday posts is clearly pointless, so the posts are just gonna kind of happen, randomly and magically, like most good things. Having fandom characters you love and worship is part of the geeky package, and the characters you want to spend time are so much fun to fantasize about. So it’s time to go to the movies, or out for some drinks, or to the movies while smuggling in drinks, with my besties. Here are my top 5 fictional BFF’s from fandoms.

1. Luna Lovegood

luna-lovegood

Luna Lovegood by leelakin

Luna Lovegood is the quirky and slightly kooky blonde Ravenclaw from the Harry Potter series. Yeah, she’s fruity as a bat, but I love her. Luna is brutally genuine, honest, and perceptive – qualities that would be perfect in a best friend. She can’t be anyone but herself, and she makes no effort to try to hide her personality or weirdness from anyone. She think it strange anyone would do that, strange as she is. She just is, and that’s the way to be. Surrounded by someone like her, I’d be unafraid to be my weird self as well. We’d spend our time talking about the interesting things we’d read in the Quibble, practicing for our Potions finals, or tagging along on fun adventures with Harry, of course.

2. Betty Cooper

betty-cooper

Betty Cooper is a teen girl from Riverdale, and an amazingly sweet character from the Archie Comics universe. True blue, and an all-American nice girl, Betty would be loyal to the end. She’s got a “Captain America” style charm about her. She’s kind, thoughtful, caring, and super nice. Plus, she loves having fun and getting out there! I think lots of people in the Riverdale universe would make fun and entertaining friends, but Betty has some seriously great friend qualities that are impossible to ignore. She would be there through thick and thin, I could just tell! We’d spend our time gossiping at Pop Tates over chocolate shakes and studying for Miss Grundy’s math tests after school. Who knows, maybe we’d even have a friendly fight over who’d be going out with Archie that night >.>

3. Noodle

noodle

Noodle is the 13 year old guitar player from the Gorillaz, oh, and a secret government experimental combat soldier. And thanks to Ocean Bacon (the verbal command which put Noodle’s fighting rampage into a state of amnesia), we can be the best of friends, and play loads of video games all the time!! Besides having a front row seat to any Gorillaz’s concert, we’d eat sushi in Japan, beat up on Murdoc, and play pool with 2D. Sounds like a blast to me! <3

4. Tank Girl

tank-girl

Tank Girl by BlitzCadet

Tank Girl is a fabulous comic book character who makes things go BOOM and then has a cold beer when it’s all over. Sometimes she’s a little gross, or vulgar, or horny, but hey, who isn’t? There wouldn’t be a boring day ever if she was around. We’d drink beers and smoke cigars with Booga, decorate tanks and other artillery vehicles with fun stickers and graffiti, and play with all of our talking stuffed animals of course, like Mr. Precocious and Camp Koala. I am SO ready to go hop on board the tank for some fun adventures!

5. Pinkie Pie

pinkie-pie

Pinkie Pie is the perky party princess of Ponyville, from the My Little Pony fandom. Clearly, a good friend must be entertaining, and Pinkie Pie would just go go go without stopping. She tells great jokes, she’s full of energy, and she loves to squeal. Qualities any good friend should have. Especially the squealing part. Toothless, her super cute pet alligator, and my dog Couscous would be fast friends. And I’d love to help the ponies on their missions to find the elements of harmony, or to help Twilight Sparkle learn a lesson about friendship, or even just in the planning of some incredible parties in Ponyville! PARTY TIME!

*BONUS* 6. Lurch

lurch

Lurch is the faithful household butler of the creepy and the kooky Addams Family. And something tells me, in my heart of hearts, that Lurch would be a fabulous BFF. Sure, he’s quiet, a little stoic, and kind of a servant in the Addams home, but he does the sweetest things for them, and I would imagine his friends. He is tolerant and puts up with a lot of silliness and nonsense – 2 qualities that are pretty essential for anyone who is going to be my friend. In our spare time, we could practice ballroom dancing, chase spiders, or play hide and seek in the marvelous Addams mansion. I know I wouldn’t mind hanging out with Wednesday or Pugsley for the day as well, providing they keep me out of that electric chair. -.-

Black Friday Purchases I Would Sacrifice A Night Of Sleep For

I am so glad I am finally able to partake in the glory that is 5 Fandom Friday. It’s a project started by 2 of my favorite geek girl bloggers, Megan, aka The Nerdy Girlie, and Kristen, aka Super Space Chick. An experiment, whose intent is to expose those deep-seeded fandom-obsessed layers of us geeky bloggers, as well as a tool to help us all overcome that creative block which can sometimes get the better of us. This Friday’s topic of choice involved Black Friday SHOPPING!

A little baby Public Service Announcement for anyone reading

I’ve got to get up on my little soapbox and make a PSA before I begin this post. First and foremost, as I write this post, my husband is at work, on Thanksgiving. Black Friday, and the monster it has become, is a bit of a moral dilemma for me. I work at eBay and Black Friday is one of our biggest days of the year, but companies putting earnings ahead of employees has never felt right to me, and shouldn’t feel right to anyone. I think certain days, no matter what their messy origins are, can and should be reserved for time with family and relaxing. Thanksgiving at one point was one of those days, but has now become “Pre-Black Friday.” I am definitely a proponent of companies who close their doors on Thanksgiving (or whatever holiday we choose to decide is a day we can not work and spend time with loved ones). Shop online all you want, but please let people spend the time with their families, and put people before profits.

The second part of my PSA involves consumerism and blogging… and YES, I am guilty. When bloggers talk about shopping, spending, and what they want want WANT, it can make them seem greedy, and it can make readers feel like they need more as well. Well, readers, I’m here to tell you that we all need to be smart with our money, and only spend what we can afford. We should budget for our families and our futures as well. If we’re fortunate enough to come into a small fortune, we need to be smart enough to put some away, or give some away; to family in need, to a friend who has fallen on hard times, or to your local Girl Scouts/Church/charity whatever. Just because we can have, doesn’t mean we need to. With a blog, we can safely fantasize/fan girl about these expensive items, but we don’t always need to buy them. I’d stress to those reading – frugality, responsibility, and charity, when possible. Alright – let’s get to it.

1. Goodies from Crystal Cactus


Rose Quartz Claw

I couldn’t possibly narrow down my choice for what I would want from Crystal Cactus for Black Friday. Too many beautiful crystals!


Aurora Dress in Blue Castle Print

2. Gobs of glorious dresses from Pin Up Girl Clothing

I was first introduced to Pin Up Girl Clothing by my darling friend Yissel via her Instagram. Not only is mid-century fashion freaking stunning and classic, but this store has adorned their beautifully made dresses with loads of lovely patterns, from fairy tales to the one I’ve chosen for my company holiday party… Tipsy Elephants. I love everything about this store!


Bobcat Skull

3. Animal Skull or Ethical Taxidermy from The Strange and Unusual

A rare gem in my hometown, The Strange and Unusual, is a local store run by a local tattoo artist and a rock star. The store sells unusual taxidermy, skulls, and shrunken heads.


My Sailor Moon Chest Tattoo

4. Tattoos! More specifically, my Sailor Moon chest tattoo!

I’ve commissioned a really talented artist to do tattoo work for me, and that artist is Danni Jo. She has designed this fantastic Sailor Moon inspired chest piece for me, and it’s going to cost me a pretty penny. So… tattoos. Yes, please.

5. Discord & Fluttershy Resin Statue My Little Pony

After becoming a Pegasister, or a Brony, or whatever the heck you want to call me, I’ve been obsessing over this tiny horse legend, known as My Little Pony. My favorite pony happens to be Fluttershy, the sweet tempered, animal loving pegasus. I stumbled upon this resin statue, which perfectly captures her sweet side!
