5 Fandom Friday: Favorite Aliens

Fandom Friday

Brought to you by The Nerdy Girlie & Super Space Chick

Who doesn’t love thinking of the possibilities that space could offer? Other universes, potential alternative home planets and, most intriguing, other life forms. Are we really alone in this expansive universe? It’s an age old question (and one the History Channel loves to delve into) that has had our culture obsessing over alien life for quite awhile. It’s no surprise that aliens are commonly included in most sci-fi shows and movies: both depicted as evil and adorable. So without further ado, here are 5 of my favorite aliens:


1. The Doctor; You know that The Doctor would make it to #1 on my list, right? Duh. Although he is an alien, The Doctor represents hope in humanity and acceptance. He helps others grow and discover who they truly are, and how special they are. He warmed my heart during my darkest of times, so The Doctor (specifically 10) is my all-time favorite alien.

Nerdy Must Haves


Sailor Moon Leggings; Since my belly began expanding with my pregnancy, I am in desperate search for comfort paired with fashion. I’ve found that leggings do this best! I can push them down under my belly and feel such relief, but when paired with a tunic top can look so chic and stylish. That’s why geeky leggings are my new best friends, and I am all about TeeFury’s new line – especially these Sailor Moon ones!

Mother of Dragons Tee; Like most ladies, I love me some Daenerys Targaryen. She’s the ultimate bad ass female – I mean, she birthed DRAGONS, you guys. Who doesn’t want to be able to say that? I definitely have to rock this tee at some point in my pregnancy because although she may not be a literal dragon, I know my little Luna is going to be a fiery one. ;)

LSP Sweater; So I know I featured a LSP cardigan last time and now here I am with a sweatshirt, but I honestly can’t help myself. I think Lumpy is fresh to death and I’d love to wear her all over my body (weird?). Too bad it’s unbearably hot right now in Miami or I’d order one stat (if they weren’t sold out).

LightSaber Rattle; Do you want to die? Because I do. How cute is this adorable lightsaber rattle??? Sometimes it is very difficult to shop geeky for a little baby girl, but leave it to Etsy to do the trick. This was promptly put on our registry.

5 Fandom Friday: Games I Love To Play


Brought to you by The Nerdy Girlie & Super Space Chick

I used to be a huge gamer when I was a kid, so the majority of my video game memories and expertise lies in the original NES console. I did get really into the Nintendo Gamecube while I was away in grad school, and at times played my hubby’s PlayStation, but otherwise, my favorite games tend to be tabletop. Honestly, there is nothing better than a game night at Casa Sanchez and I wish we could have them more often!

71O6Z0Qmv5L._SL1063_1. Clue: Sherlock Edition
OK, so the Brits refer to it as ClueDO, but it’s exactly the same as the classic Clue game we all grew up with. This edition just switches out all the elements you have grown to love with characters and settings from BBC’s Sherlock. Um, what’s not to love? I can literally play this all day and not tire of it. It’s such a blast.

What I Wore: Odd Duck Craft Fair


I always seem to be out of town or busy whenever we have a local craft fair here in South Florida, so after a last minute change of plans (no MegaCon for me – boohoo), I was at least happy that I would be able to make it to The Odd Duck Craft Fair in Downtown Hollywood. Little victories, my friends.

Although I ultimately wasn’t very impressed with the size and turn out of the event overall, it was nice to get out on such a beautiful day, enjoy a delicious smoothie and pick up some fun accessories from some great vendors. Plus, there is always next month’s Indie Craft Bazaar at Revolution Live to look forward to!

With that said, it is HOT here in South Florida so this outing called for a lightweight outfit with subtle fandom references and some cute geeky specs. Looks like we have a lot of steamy weather to look forward to in the months to come! Start feeling that envy Northeast! ;)

Accio Baby!


Needless to say, after 7 years of marriage and a heartbreaking loss, we are SO excited to welcome a little bit of magic into our lives this coming October! I can’t wait to share the journey here on the blog, and hope to bring all the geek chic you expect to mommyhood.

Accio baby!
