Nerdy Must Haves

Bowie Potter tee; I will always remember dancing feverishly in my 20’s to Bowie at our favorite rock club. All hair swishing, hip swaying, drink spilling…it represents my carefree youth. I will always remember first reading Potter after fervently saying I never would. The relationships formed with these fictitious characters in a magical world also represent and parallel my own “coming of age.” Both these things together? All the feels! This tee must be mine. SIRIUSLY.

Edit; this post was written before the passing of David Bowie. My heart breaks.

Blogger tee; I’m identifying myself more and more as a blogger. Of course, I still say I’m a behavior analyst when asked what I do, but I am now starting to add, “…and blogger” to the end of that sentence. And it feels good, even if people scoff or laugh when I say what my blog is about. I’m doing exactly what I want to be doing with my life – how many people can say the same? That’s why I’m gunning for this blogger tee to further say it loud and proud – plus, it’s adorable, no??

Jordan sweater; the amount of strange noises that emanated from my being when I saw the beautiful Keiko Lynn post this to her Instagram was intense. In middle school, I was beyond obsessed with My So-Called Life (& I still am). I even wrote a letter to ABC about how they shouldn’t cancel it – obviously it wasn’t very effective. But I digress. Jordan Catalano was every tween’s unicorn, and who doesn’t remember that amazing episode that opens with Angela dancing in her bedroom to “Blister in the Sun” on the morning she realizes she is totally over Jordan Catalano. Basically, NEED THIS NOW.

Luna Lovegood skirt; although my little Luna is not specifically named after Lovegood, she is my favorite character in the series (aside from hot, dragon-taming Bill Weasley). I’d love for my Luna to possess a lot of Lovegood’s qualities, but until she’s old enough to start developing them, I can wear all the things that make her great with this perfect skirt.

In summary, give me all the things.
Please + thank you.

Fandom of the Month Club: 1 Year Anniversary

FOTM Club

It’s hard to believe that Fandom of the Month Club has already been around for a year! It’s even harder to believe that I’ve been with them since {nearly} the beginning. I think I jumped on board the 3rd box, and have been hooked ever since. Sure, some months have not corresponded to my fandoms, but it’s always nice when I’m able to gift an entire set to a friend (and that’s only happened twice). This month, the team was teasing a bigger and better set with it being their anniversary and all. I was so incredibly excited to see what goodies it would hold and I was not disappointed.

First off, all the pieces were for fandoms I adore, so that made me grin from ear to ear. There was a TARDIS ring, dragon stud earrings, a mockingjay keychain, Harry Potter charm bookmark, and my personal favorite: a LOST necklace. I had such a ridiculous fangirl moment when I saw it – and it’s commemorating one of the most gut-wrenching scenes with my favorite character. I’m not joking when I say I may wear it every day. Erin mentioned that she would love to do an entire LOST themed set, but she didn’t think that it would be received well. That makes my heart so sad. I would absolutely LOVE to see what she would curate – can you imagine a DriveShaft ring?

Everything included was awesome, except I have to admit that I was a little confused by the bookmark. I actually had no idea what it was when I initially opened it. My husband and I racked our brains trying to figure it out, and it wasn’t until someone commented on the official Instagram that I found out it was a very elaborate bookmark. This is the one item I was a little disappointed in. Sure, it is absolutely gorgeous, but it’s very heavy and I don’t think very practical to actually be used as a bookmark. Again, the charms are so beautiful, I would have liked to see them be used for something like a charm bracelet. Now that would have looked killer.

Overall, I was really happy and know I’ll be sticking with this subscription service for the long haul!

Oh Fandom Maternity Giveaway!

So remember how I was always complaining that there was no fandom maternity wear during my pregnancy? Well, now there is! I was contacted by Oh Fandom Maternity to feature one of their awesome maternity tees, but unfortunately, was not able to in time since I was told I would be induced. The tee actually arrived the day after Luna was born, so a flat lay was the next best thing I could show you all!

Cassie decided to start Oh Fandom because she realized the Harry Potter generation was starting to have kids of their own, and wanted to give them the geeky options that they so desired. The company is starting with only Potter designs, but hopes to expand to other fandoms very soon.

I personally love the quality of the tees and think they go great with my favorite pair of maternity skinny jeans from Old Navy. Pair them with some vampy lips and nails, and I think you have the perfect Fall geeky mama look! Now, lucky for you, since I am no longer pregnant (& don’t plan on being pregnant again for a long while – if even), I am giving away this awesome tee in a size small. The giveaway will run for one week, until 11/13/15, where a winner will be chosen at random. All you have to do is follow these 3 easy steps:

1. Follow @melificent on Instagram
2. Follow @oh.fandom.maternity on Instagram
3. Leave a comment on this post with your favorite Harry Potter moment

TeeFury’s Potter Power

IMG_5562

Teefury has always been a force to reckon with when it comes to geeky fashion. They started with just tees of the day, and expanded to have a whole gallery of amazing shirt designs and are now tackling shoes and leggings! My obsession with the site became so serious that I used to have it as my home screen. That is, when I would open the Internet, their homepage would show up first, immediately filling me in on what their shirt of the day was. My collection became so large, I couldn’t shut my tee drawer anymore and decided to take a shopping hiatus. What worked in my favor was that I became pregnant shortly after. Unfortunately, I just realized that all I have to do is size up and I can continue to rock their amazing tees as witnessed in this post. Fail.

I decided to match up this incredible Potter/Quidditch tee with my favorite pair of Old Navy skinnies and my new NYX lip cream in Bewitched. I thought it made a great dupe for those new Potter shades being offered by LA Splash Cosmetics. Together, I think I played the part of an excited fangirl witch enjoying the game with paraphernalia and butter beer in hand.

Fandom Friday: Crossovers That Would Cause My Heart to Explode

Fandom Friday

tumblr_static_wholock_better_yes

1. Doctor Who/Sherlock; I’m sure this comes as no surprise to all my fellow BBC fangirls. This is the crossover that we have always hoped would happen, but have succumbed to just reading plenty of fan fiction. Have you guys seen this excellent mash up? It will only make your heart ache more for this project to actually happen.

2. Sailor Moon/Adventure Time; I am pretty quick to state that I think anything should be crossed with Adventure Time Рit just lends itself to make any world a little more fun and bright. However, the image I used above definitely sparked an intense desire for it to happen with Sailor Moon. The anime can be pretty silly at first, but then progresses to some heavy themes. Think how adorable it would be a little more light hearted??? And with Jupiter as Marceline, what! Need this now.
