5 Fandom Friday: 5 Nerdiest Things You’ve Ever Done

fandom.5.friday

Brought to you by; The Nerdy Girlie & Super Space Chick

I have to admit that this was a really fun prompt. I am pretty damn nerdy and ridiculous when it comes to my fandoms, so I’ve done quite a few things that I deem up there when it comes to superlatives. It was actually difficult to only whittle it down to 5. I will never lie about one thing: I fangirl. And I fangirl hard.

1; First fans to enter The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

When I found out that there was going to be a theme park based on Harry Potter, and it was going to basically be in my backyard, I had to be there. I didn’t care that opening day was in June, which meant terrible heat and humidity. I didn’t care that there would be throngs of people to fight to get in. I didn’t care that we had to wake up at 4am. We somehow (I still think someone slipped us some Felix Felicis) ended up being the first 50 people in the park right behind the cast. It was amazing – we were on the Today Show and interviewed by NBC6. Daniel Radcliffe even walked right past us like he was an every day normal muggle. It was one of my most favorite days.

What I Wore: Free Comic Book Day

I know it’s been a couple of weeks since Free Comic Book Day, but I hope all of you were able to participate and have a great time! I’m a little embarrassed to say that our favorite local comic book shop, Tate’s, had such an enormous line for free comics that we opted to just spend money in-store instead! We got some great toys, books and art, and I was even able to leave some Geek Girl Brunch flyers behind! Overall, it was a really great day and such an appropriate time to sport my new Harry Potter polo from 1138 Clothing.

This adorable top is often paired with a custom made house skirt, but my expanding mid-section did not allow me to pick up a matching skirt. All is well though. This keeps me and Luna open to all houses. ;)

Geek Girl Brunch Miami: Inaugural Brunch

DSCF2699

I have been so excited for this event since last year when I was chosen to be a chapter officer for the Geek Girl Brunch Miami branch. I had been following the organization for awhile, being a fan of co-founder, Jamila’s blog, Girl Gone Geek. I always wished we had something similar, so I jumped on board the second they started calling for officers. South Florida sorely lacks in geek culture (especially targeted towards females), so I thought it would be a welcomed addition to our city.

Both myself and Aurora (my fellow officer) planned a Harry Potter themed inaugural brunch that would be hosted by Rok: Brgr in South Miami on April 26th. They were generous enough to allow us a big chunk of their outdoor space on their busiest day and time of the week: Sunday brunch! We wanted to make this very special for our new brunchettes, so we reached out to vendors for specialty swag. Each brunchette received a swag bag full of goodies (see full list below) and we gave away some adorable threads from So Effing Cute for the best dressed witch, as well as trivia winners!

Sure these add-ons were great, but honestly, what made the event so special for me personally was the beautiful positive energy swirling around the tables that you could basically touch. Every single girl got along great, and ice breakers weren’t even needed. There was never a break in conversation! Plus, everyone was so grateful as the brunch wrapped up, and equally excited for the next event. They even had to basically kick us out of the restaurant – no one wanted to stop chatting! Overall, it was a truly magical morning and I cannot wait to continue making Geek Girl Brunch Miami bigger, better and more influential in our community.

What I Wore: Modern Witch

_MG_8180

As most of you know, last weekend was the first Geek Girl Brunch Miami, and I clearly had to dress the part. Unfortunately, the outfit I had planned didn’t make it to my mailbox in time, so I had to improvise. Now rocking a bump, improvising isn’t that easy, but I think I made it work. For all those preggo ladies, or just those that are curious on how they can make outfits work when they are preggo one day, I swear by the maxi dress.

Not just a boring maxi dress, of course, but throwing a fandom crop (or tank) over it. You will probably see this in some way, shape or form over the span of my pregnancy, so I’m sorry for that. I grabbed my Gryffindor crop and pulled it on top of a comfy maxi, paired it with my favorite witch hat and bam! A modern take on Hermione on her way to brunch with her girlfriends.

Fandom of the Month Club

It’s that wonderful time of the month again: Fandom of the Month delivery time!

As you can remember, I posted about my first delivery a little while ago on the blog. I was so excited to see that it was Doctor Who themed, and I was equally as excited to see this month’s: Harry Potter! It was like kismet with our first Geek Girl Brunch having the same theme just this past weekend (post for that coming very soon)! I mean, my nails even matched, people. It was meant to be.
