5 Fandom Friday: Real Life Geeks Who Inspire Me


So I'm absolutely loving the topic this week as it's a chance for us to spread some love around the nerd community. It took me a while to really accept myself as a geek and in some ways it's still seen as a dirty word (definitely not by moi though!) but there are some awesome people in this community who have shown me that there is nothing wrong with loving the things you love and to really truly embrace yourself and be proud of who you are. I'm such a happier person now and no longer feel the need to hide my passions and part of that is down to these people and of course a super special shoutout to all my nerdy friends online and off who are beautiful, awesome and constantly inspiring me to live and love that nerd life.

Wil Wheaton & Felicia Day
I thought I'd talk about these two awesome geeks together because I pretty much adore them for the same reasons and also they make an amazing team! Both Wil Wheaton and Felicia Day embrace their quirks and their hobbies and passion and they also give a voice to the 'weird' kids giving us someone to relate to making us feel special. They also host some amazing nerdy events bringing the geek community together and they are totally unashamedly living the geek life something we all should aspire to.

Hayley Atwell
Because I obviously don't gush about her enough on this blog! The more I learn about this goofball the more I love her and the more she inspires me whether it's dubsmash wars or being a voice for feminism she always brings a light to my day and makes me want to be a better person.

Yaya Han
The queen of cosplay. I absolutely adore her costumes they're so beautiful and even better she's made her career cosplay, she's living the dream and it totally inspires me to get my butt into gear and star working hard towards my dream goals to.



Female Geek Bloggers
You bunch of awesome people, with your awesome blogs inspire me everyday to keep living and blogging that nerd life, I have to admit I did feel a bit lost in the blogging world for a time but since being a part of this amazing community of like minded people I really feel rejuvenated and inspired again so thanks everyone for the amazing support and keep up all the amazing work that you do xoxo

The Origins of Cateaclysmic

I've been blogging in some form or another online for over 10 years! I guess I really got into it during my LiveJournal days and because of it made some really great friends who inspired me to continue blogging and after a bit of messing around on blogspot I eventually created this site in 2009.

When I first started blogging I considered myself a fashion blogger and whilst that is something that still does interest me I'm happy now just to blog about everything and anything I love, this blog has evolved with me over the years and become a place I'm really proud and happy to be involved in.


Advice for New Bloggers

Whilst I may not have the "fame" and recognition of other bloggers in my circle I've come to realise that you do things for you. If you wanna blog go for it, just do it! Don't feel like you have to have a niche just write about what interests you and the rest will follow. If blogging starts to feel like a chore and something you don't enjoy then don't feel afraid to take a break or just stop it should always be something you enjoy, and don't worry about the pageviews!

Be sure to check out this sweet interview I did with my friend Cally all about blogging, crafting and living the geek life as well as my monthly "Things That Make You Go Oooooo" list which is always full of some great links and blogging advice.


My Nominations

After my previous Liebster and Dragon awards I'm running short on people to nominate so I'm breaking the rules and want you to instead link me to your blogs in the comments and then we can all check out each other and maybe find some new people to follow 



Love & Luck Dragons

5 Fandom Friday: Crossovers That Would Cause My Heart to Explode

Welcome to another Fandom Friday brought to you buy The Nerdy Girly & Super Space Chick, this week we're talking about crossovers that would make our hearts explode which is an awesome title although I'm hoping not literal because ick! Also it's my birthday tomorrow so ya know "Studio People" if you want to announce any of these awesome ideas it would be not only the perfect time but the perfect birthday present...

SUPERWHOLOCK
Supernatural + Doctor Who + Sherlock I mean do I really have to explain how gosh darn freakin' awesome this would be, the world would be an awesome place if these shows joined forces to fight the good fight and rid the world of evil and just imagine all the witty banter it would be the most quotable show ever!

Jurassic World & Godzilla
I mentioned this in a previous Fandom 5 but I'm mentioning it again because it needs to happen and if Legendary want to throw in Pacific Rim that's all good with me.

Supergirl & The Flash
Just look at these two cuties I want them to team up already, I know Supergirl hasn't even started yet but I already love it after seeing the pilot and I know they've already said they won't crossover but my fangirl heart will keep the hope alive

All Star Female Superheroes
None of this DC vs Marvel business I want a big team up against a big bad where everyone loves and supports each other to kick serious ass. Ever since I heard about the Wonder Woman movie being WWII based I've been thinking what if Peggy was in this movie and how amazing they would be together also seeing these ladies together at the Women Who Kick Ass panel in SDCC has me thinking up all kinds of lady hero crossovers.

Disney x Game of Thrones
Firstly stop reading this and go check out these amazing pictures right now! Don't tell me you wouldn't want to see that movie, I know never in a million years would this happen but after seeing all that amazing artwork my mind is singing and I want it sooooo much!

Lego Builds: Captain America & The Avenging Cycle

Lego Captain America

I've had this Lego set for over 2 years and it had been sitting in my nerd cupboard along with a few other awesome Lego sets waiting to be built for too long so I thought I would finally get it out and get it made and because I had such fun making my last Lego build video I thought I would do another one so be sure to let me know if you like it and I may do another Lego build video soon!


This set didn't take me long to build and I was kinda sad it was over so quickly but I do love Cap's Avenging Cycle it's so cute and makes a great addition to my Cap collection, Lego is so much fun to I definitely need to start getting all these awesome sets out of storage and start building them!
