Fantastical Friday: Nerdy DIY Thoughts

Fantastical Friday

In the course of fleshing out a character for a LARP expedition or prepping a cosplay idea for a convention it’s incredibly obvious that you or someone you are paying is going to have to produce the items you require. While I will not be doing a DIY today I am exploring some thoughts for LARP characters, as I roleplay far more frequently than I cosplay. I was wandering about on Panda Hall‘s site because I enjoy their wide variety of items more specifically meant for creating jewelry & other fantastical pieces. 😉 The second item in this listing will require a bit more effort should you choose to make jewelry or item embellishments (like for a bag, belt, etc) from them as they do not come with pre-drilled holes & are not readily in a setting (depending on your needs), but they still look like fun tokens for various enchantments or character history reminders. I’m especially fond of #3 as potions are so very handy for game play & they are nice & small to render them near at hand for use (like on a necklace, bracelet, hooked to a belt, etc). This particular site is also nice for their wholesale sets, so if your friends like what you did you can make them something similar too, or sell your concocted items to other enthusiasts. 😉

Watermelon Wednesday: Layered Accent

Watermelon Wednesday

A good necklace can completely change the neckline of a blouse or it can make a lovely accent. It’s no secret that I love jewelry, cheap or fine, it doesn’t matter as long as the bauble fits into my sense of style (it also helps if it can be readily coordinated with my existing wardrobe & pieces). Layering necklaces are wonderful for the versatility they possess, but it’s also nice to have beautiful pieces that layer themselves for those times when I don’t want to devote my whole processor to figuring out what works best with my other selections. It might sometimes seem like lazy style, but many of these treasures are really amazing & should not be counted out. Today’s piece caught my eye as I wandered about the pages of Target & it’s on clearance, which means it won’t be around very much longer. 😉

Magnificent Monday: Mia Farrow

Magnificent Monday

This lovely actress began her career in the 60s & while Mia has not been as prolific as many of the women I have honored on Monday, she has made a noticeable impact with the roles she has chosen to grace the screen with, as her numerous awards speak volumes. I believe that I first noticed her as a voice actress when she voiced Amalthea in The Last Unicorn which came out in my early childhood. Being a major horror movie buff, Farrow really hit my radar in Rosemary’s Baby & yes, I am aware that it came out before the movie I mentioned prior, but no one shows a toddler such films so it’s natural that I saw The Last Unicorn first, lol. Like so many stars she is a champion of many causes, especially those that help children & the suffering. A powerfully maternal figure she has been mother to 14, though only 11 are still with us today it does paint a picture of a woman who is very committed to bettering the lives of the young.

Her jewelry selection is often spartan, but when she chooses to so accessorize it tends to be simple & elegant. I found a few beautiful pieces that, for the most part, fit that general description at TB Dress. As always when I present a list from this particular site, I always show full price, though I assure you, there is always a sale & this will not be the price that you pay, best to be pleasantly surprised. 😉

I Don’t Like Taking Breaks

Last week was characterized by far too much overtime at work & I haven’t taken a break from my charity work for over a year. Needless to say, my posts take time to prepare, time I didn’t have recently. During my days off I had to sleep & recover. I hope to be back to regular posting next week.

Watermelon Wednesday: Tunic

Watermelon Wednesday

I don’t know about you, but I love a nice, comfy tunic top. This is generally a great time of year to find them & certainly a wonderful time to wear them. 🙂 I’m particularly fond of the hemline on the lovely top I found at Walmart.com & hope that you enjoy it as well.

Magnificent Monday: Angela Bassett

Magnificent Monday

Not only stunningly beautiful, but amazingly talented Bassett has been recognized with numerous nominations & awards throughout her career, She’s known for portraying strong characters & biographical roles for real African American women. She was the first member of her family to attend college & graduate school, gaining degrees in African America studies & fine arts, both from Yale. Much like many of the stars I have honored for their magnificence, she is a staunch supporter of many charities such as The Boys & Girls Club of America, Habitat for Humanity, is very active as an ambassador for UNICEF in the United States & supports a variety of programs for the arts, especially for youth.

Her style certainly stands out from the crowd, which is often sophisticated & can be quite dramatic. She does appear to enjoy accessorizing with earrings, bangles & rings, so I have focused on these three in the little wishlist for today. All of today’s selections were found at Tidebuy & as per usual, I have listed full price for them, as their sales change frequently & I cannot be sure what the price you might find following my links, though I assure you, this site never sells it’s items for their full list price. 😉
