1. TARDIS; Yeah yeah, surely on everyone’s list would be the TARDIS. But, I mean, who doesn’t want to travel across time and space with the Doctor? Can I pick which regeneration I’d like to travel with? Because it’s 10 or nothing!
1. Desmond Prequel; He was one of my favorite characters from LOST and the most intriguing. Do you wonder what his life was really like (in full, not just via flashbacks) before his time on the island? How about in between those flashforwards? I think it would be so amazing because lets face it, The Constant was the best LOST episode of the entire series.
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.
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.
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.
