Fantastical Friday: Gamer Stuff

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

I do love my games. 😀 I know I’ve done other posts on this topic, but it’s always fun to revisit gaming. While I have included some shirts & jewelry as with other posts, this time I have gone a little further going into controllers. A few of the controllers are actual controllers, but most are skins meant to personalize your existing game gear. I know I didn’t select a lot of colors, but pink is a traditionally girly color & purple just so happens to be my fave, so I limited my selection to those given the infinite possibilities of color personalization. Branching out a bit the shirts are less about retro gaming (as I focused more on that in previous posts) & more centered on a modern perspective. I hope you all have fun with this post & your own gaming experiences! 😉 All of these items were found on Amazon.com.

Magnificent Monday: Reba McEntire

Magnificent Monday

Reba, all my life I have heard this name. A name that is almost synonymous with country music. With her lovely voice & beautiful presence she has proven herself again & again to be worthy of her iconic status. Though it was later in her career & in my adult life I have to say that her show Reba was one of my favorites during it’s running. She will always be a symbol of resilience & strength in my eyes.

Reba McEntire

Her sense of style is also quite enviable. With so much to be inspired by it was hard to narrow down a list of choices, lol. I’ve made a few jewelry selections from Walmart that I believe begin to capture some of the essence of her fashionable pieces.

2) Crystal Accent Gold over Sterling Silver Cross Pendant, 18″ ($7.95)

Fantastical Friday: Trek Play

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

If you’ve been following me for a bit, then you are completely aware that I am a trekkie. So I thought it would be awesome to put together some Original Series & Next Gen costumes. 😀 It is interesting to note meaning of the uniform colors was changed in the Next Gen, in Kirk’s time gold was the color of command & red was for engineering & security while in the time of Picard & thereafter red was the color of command & gold was relegated to engineering & security. I was a little disappointed that I could not find a gold uniform dress for my Original Series collection, I had to settle for yellow. I figure black boots are likely already in your collection & if they are not they are still easy to find, so I have chosen not to include them in today’s selections. The Next Gen uniform is the same product, just different color selections, the price range that I have listed is based on the largest size selection for each color. Everything in this post was found on Amazon.com, which you probably already know is one of the best places to find almost anything your heart may desire.

Magnificent Monday: Elisabeth Shue

Magnificent Monday

Elisabeth first came to my attention when I was a small child & she appeared in the original The Karate Kid. She went on to be in Back to the Future II & III, which were similarly iconic to me as a child. More recently she was in one of my favorite series, CSI which sadly ended last year.

Elisabeth Shue

This gorgeous actress has a wonderful & often delicate sense of style, that just begs to be copied. I’ve found a wonderful necklaces at Lane Bryant & while their store is not as known for jewelry as clothing they do stock some beautiful pieces in their ever changing selection. I hope you enjoy these lovelies as much as I do. 😉

Fantastical Friday: Harley Quinn Cosplay

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

This is perhaps the easiest cosplay to pull off when you don’t have time or the inclination for DIY. Given the popularity of this particular villainess, sometimes anti-hero, her costume is available year ’round. You might have to do a little extra digging for an oversize mallet, lol. This particular costume that I found is more like her original & while the attached boot covers have a more authentic look for her early foot gear they look clunky to me so I found a couple of pairs of Mary Janes so that the colors can be mixed & matched. Shouldn’t be too difficult to do a minimum DIY & remove the shoe covers. Might also be cool to use black & red socks to contrast with the shoes. Have to admit that the mallet isn’t quite as awesome as what I had hoped, not that they list it’s dimensions, but it is obvious that the handle is not very long in comparison to the head of the inflatable weapon. Still this is a fun cosplay for conventions or parties. 😉 Everything in this post comes from Spirit Halloween.

Magnificent Monday: Rae Dawn Chong

Magnificent Monday

I think she first came to my attention with The Color Purple, Rae has been in numerous intriguing roles since. More recently she has created a bit of controversy with her rather public statements about Oprah. I suppose everyone is entitled to their opinion, even if it does come off as a bit crude. I have to admit to liking people that are willing to speak their mind bluntly, even if I do not agree with what they have to say (not that I personally know Oprah or anything).

Rae Dawn Chong

Always glamorous, even in the most simple of outfits, it’s easy to find inspiration when thinking of Rae Dawn Chong. I found some beautiful baubles at Billy the Tree that seem to fit well in the style of this marvelous icon.

Chong Inspired1) Crystal Fashion Choker and Earring Set ($9.95)
2) Endless Simulated Pearl Fashion Necklace and Earring Set ($16.95)
3) 1928 Jewelry – Silver-Tone Purple Beaded Necklace 16″Adj. ($22)

Fantastical Friday: LARP Concept Archer

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

I thought it was about time to return to the subject of LARPing & rather than focus on accessories as I did last time I put together more of a complete ensemble. While the costume looks great it does not come with the bow, leggings, or foot gear, so I did a little more shopping to finish up with the necessities for enhanced play. The costume, leggings & boots were found at Spirit Halloween & the weaponry on Amazon.com. I point out that the bow is real & should be handled with caution when using arrows (rubber tipped arrows are a little friendlier but can still be dangerous if not treated with care). The crossbow is a toy, but it can still fire so caution should be used with it as well. You can paint the sword any way you like or use it with it’s natural wood color, but it is best to have a melee weapon when the monsters/enemies are too close for the ranged bow & crossbow. 😉 Keep in mind that the wood is very solid so it’s best to keep strikes as close to a gentle tap as possible.

Archer1) Huntress Adult Womens Costume ($44.99)
2) Adult’s Black Liquid Leggings ($24.99)
3) Womens Black Gogo Boots ($34.99)

Archer Accessories1) Archery Bow the Delilah Long Bow ($39.99)

Magnificent Monday: Drew Barrymore

Magnificent Monday

The Drew Barrymore that most easily comes to my mind was from very long ago. The first movie I ever saw in a theater was E.T. The Extraterrestrial & while I do not actually recall that initial viewing the movie had a huge impact on me. I still have my stuffed E.T. doll my mother gave me for my 5th birthday (he was pretty much my best friend for nearly a decade). Drew’s role in the film reminds me a lot of one of my little sisters, though I had no younger siblings when the film was released (I have 3 younger sisters, 2 younger brothers & 1 older brother).

Drew Barrymore

Since E.T. she’s had many other spectacular roles & despite the early pitfalls of child stardom has grown into a glamorous woman & loving mother. Of course I put together a little list of baubles inspired by her style & today’s selections come from OASAP.

Barrymore Inspired1) Modern Star And Crescent Artificial Gemstone ($5.99)
2) Golden Plated Leave Pendent Necklace ($5.99)
3) Vintage Style Rose Pendant Necklace ($5.99)
4) Golden Tone Moon Shape Pendent Necklace ($6.99)
5) Vintage Antique Hollow Out Necklace ($7.99)
6) Vintage Silver Tone Water Drop Pendant Necklace ($9.99)
7) Stackable Ring Set ($6.99)
8) Etched Stackable Rhinestone Deco Vintage Ring Set ($8.99)
9) Fashion Metallic Foliage Ring Set ($8.99)

Fantastical Friday: May The Force Be With You

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Nerd culture has been exploding with the theatrical release of Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens. Earlier this week I went to the theater with my father & older brother to finally watch it myself. I must say that it was awesome, though I have to admit that a myriad of question have arisen from the story itself. I’m not going to give any spoilers so perhaps we will discuss this again at a later date. 😉 On the other hand of you happen to follow my older brother you may have read some of his hilarious anti-spoilers, like the one where he said that Chewbacca had gender reassignment & is now Chewbecca (omg rofl).

Anyway, I was naturally inspired by this recent nerdgasm to do a little Star Wars related shopping. Again I am a bit disappointed that the major vendors have almost forgotten the female nerd culture in that most offered items are meant for men (or boys) & the few things specifically meant for women seem a little like an afterthought. Despite this I did find a few cool things from Target to share with you. Hope you enjoy these as much as I do & may the force be with you! 😀

Force Inspired 1) Star Wars R2D2 Travel Case ($9.99)
2) Star Wars™ Women’s 5 Pack No Show Socks ($12.99)
3) Winter Darth Vader Graphic Tee Grey ($14.99)
