5 Fandom Friday: Favourite Aliens



I may have squealed just a little bit when I saw the topic for this week's #Fandom5 because aliens are definitely a long time love of mine and I could easily have named at least 5 more aliens I love there's just so many! Much love as always to The Nerdy Girlie & Super Space Chick for creating 5 Fandom Friday and with that let's get onto the good stuff...

Superman
This guy is my first and always Superhero love, he's the epitome of good and something I always aspire to be. I have to admit although I don't keep up to date with his comic book adventures much anymore I still care very much for him as he was such a huge part of my childhood.

E.T.
Speaking of childhood heroes I couldn't not mention E.T. I love this guy sooo much and am forever saying "Beee gooood" as well as the infamous "E.T, phone home" it's amazing that although I've seen this movie hundreds of time I still get really emotional at the end, how can you not love E.T.?

Paul
Created as a homage to E.T. this dude is the complete opposite and I kinda love it! I would love so much to hang out with Paul he's be so much damn fun and it would also be pretty cool to gain knowledge of the universe through his mind melding powers.

Stitch
I love Stitch so much and Lilo & Stitch is high on my list of favourite Disney movies as it makes me smile so much through its sweet message of family and love, also Stitch reminds me so much of one of our old dogs it's ridiculous!

Thermians
Galaxy Quest is my favourite Star Trek movie and it's because of these guys. I think Aliens sometimes get a bad rep (and yes there are some bad aliens in this movie to) but here we see a race of aliens that are so sweet natured and pure that they have absolutely no concept of lies and they're also highly intelligent I mean they took science fiction and made it science fact! What I love most about them though is their childlike excitement and positivity, I would happily welcome these guys to our planet any day even in their octopus like form... NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER SURRENDER!

5 Fandom Friday: Fandom Guilty Pleasures



It's the last Friday of June so you know what that means it's FANDOM FRIDAY YEY! As Always Fandom Friday is brought to you by The Nerdy Girly & Super Space Chick and this week the topic was suggested by @MeghanSaraK. It's hard for me to think of any guilty pleasures I have because they're more or less just pleasures, I spent so long struggling with my geekiness and acceptance but now I'm at a point where I just don't give a crap what people think and I love what I love, also nerdiness has become somewhat accepted now with lots of people proudly wearing their fandoms on their tees and openly discussing the latest superhero movies, it really is an awesome time for nerds!


Binge watching multiple seasons/series in one night
I guess I should feel guilty about this one because more often than not I should be doing something more useful with my time, like eating something that isn't popcorn, sleeping or general "adulting" but ya know the feeling you just get sucked in and need to see what happens even if you've already watched it several times already...

Creeping on the Superhunks
I totally relate to Hayley Atwell because if I saw Chris Evans looking like that I couldn't resist a boob grab either. Seriously though look at these gorgeous people the fandoms are full of them and you can't help but stare and fantasise about running away together to a cabin in the woods and living happily ever after... yeah I'm a total creep but why are these people so beautiful?

27/65 - antique.
Binge reading comics
Ok confession time I very, very rarely keep up with the single issues and only ever buy them when there's a cool variant edition, I know I should support the series I love and I'm seriously lagging behind but there's also a lack of comic book shops here so I tend to just wait till conventions or there's few trades out so I can buy all the comics and devour them all in one go, although I often go weeks without reading anything those days when I can binge read are the best days ever!

Sons of Anarchy
I don't even know why I started watching this... Ok I do and it's called Charlie Hunnam who I've been creeping on since Queer as Folk hit our TV screens in the late 90's. I'm not even sure whether I like this show or not but I can't stop watching despite several times declaring I would never watch it again after my heart was ripped out seeing yet another sick brutal scene, but I always go back for more and thankfully (or maybe not so?) it's all over now but the feels are still real guys, they're still real!

Kaiju Movies
They're cheesy, the effects are awful, the plots are ridiculous that's if there's even one at all and the acting is completely OTT but I love a good monster movie. There's nothing like seeing a big rubber monster smashing up stuff to get you pumped up and in a great mood, you can totally just switch off your mind and just enjoy the ridiculousness. I remember a lot of these movies from when I was a kid during my summers in Thailand so I get warm, fuzzy feelings of nostalgia every time I see one, I'm also loving the new takes on these movies although they're a heck of a lot more impressive I still love those cheesy old B movies.

Baking Carol's Cookies from The Walking Dead (Vegan & Gluten Free)

Carol's Cookies from The Walking Dead

Hellatus has well and truly set in with all my fave TV shows ending and I'm torn between binge watching previous seasons, watching something new or just trying to do something more productive with my life than sitting in front of a TV expressing all my feels so what better way to spend my time than some fandom cooking...


I made a few little changes to Carol's recipe to cater to my diet by using almond/coconut butter instead of shortening, gluten free flour and vegan chocolate chips all of which I'm guessing would be easily pilfered from your local health food store (or Costco) during a zombie apocalypse.

Carol's Cookies from The Walking Dead

These cookies were delicious and I did what anyone would do and ate the whole damn plate in one night, I get why that kid is so damn obsessed with these cookies now and I think I love Carol a little bit more I mean anyone who can bake cookies during a zombie apocalypse is someone I want on my team!

What would be your must have treat during a zombie apocalypse?

5 Fandom Friday: Characters With My Favorite Fictional Fashion



It's Friday so you know what that means it's another edition of 5 Fandom Friday created by the always awesome The Nerdy Girly and Super Space Chick. I'm all about the subject this week suggested by @1CuriousWriter because if there's one thing I really enjoy it's nerdy fashion, I think one of the main reasons I got into cosplay was just so I could wear awesome outfits and my wardrobe is probably 90% nerd! I think I could easily have listed about 15 characters whose wardrobes I want but alas we only have 5 choices so here are just a few of my faves...

Cher Horowitz
Let's start right at the begging because when I was a youngling and first saw Clueless I wanted Cher's wardrobe so badly in fact I think I did start to steal elements of her style and I used to cut out pictures of her in magazines and make little outfit collages out of catalogues we'd get in the post, yep pretty much doing Polyvore before the days of the internet!

Margaery Tyrell
I LOVE the costumes in Game of Thrones and seeing the details put into them in real life at the exhibitions just blows my mind, I've been very tempted to steal them on several occasions. Out of everyone though I think Margaery has my favourite style, I mean that wedding dress is amazing I want it in my wardrobe so badly!

Wonder Woman
She has a costume for all occasions and that's amazing, it doesn't matter if she's in shorts, skirts, trousers or pants I love them all and she looks damn good. I even love the ridiculous golden eagle armour and if I was Wonder Woman I would wear the heck out of it! Wondy is high on my list of characters I want to cosplay but I'm still undecided as to which version of her I want to do although I'm leaning towards the DC Bombshell look...

Peggy Carter
Since Agent Carter I've found myself getting back into vintage fashion, I still want that hat and although I don't wear heels that often as soon as I found out where they bought Peggy's shoes from I ordered them and I love them even if they make my feet hurt. This lady can rock a trouser suit and although I never wear trousers I still want to wear what Peggy's wearing, she looks good in everything, I love her and her style so much!

Myrtle Snow
I know everyone is thinking WTF but I love Myrtle Snow's style so much she's a rainbow in a sea of black and witch knows fashion I mean let's not forget her infamous last words! I would love to raid Myrtle Snow's wardrobe because I imagine every dress, glove, scarf, jacket to have an amazing story to go with it. When I had to go buy a new pair of glasses I ended up coming home with a pair not dissimilar to the ones she wears. I definitely would love to dress as eccentricly and awesomely as her when I'm older, basically what I'm saying is I want to be Myrtle Snow when I grow up...
