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. 😉

Fantastical Friday: OMG Zombies!!!

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Still suffering from TWD withdrawal & anxiously awaiting the start of season 8. At least the spin-off Fear The Walking Dead will (hopefully) turn up in a few months, though the exact date has yet to be announced. Luckily there are always movies, both silly & serious, that can help fill the zombie-less void. In the meantime there’s also varied zombie related paraphernalia to entertain even the most avid people munching monster lover & with that being the case I have compiled a little wishlist from Amazon for you perusing pleasure. 😉 I’ve also included a link to a ridiculous short movie, titled OMG!! Zombies, (I might have shared this before, can’t remember & I’m not going to dig through my posts to be sure, LOL) that I made in SmallWorlds several years back. Keep in mind that there is no verbal chat in SW, so reading chat bubbles is the norm & I didn’t change the style, so it’s technically a silent film (beware headphones/earbud users, some of the sound effects have moments of loud). You can clearly see the heavy influence from Night of the Living Dead, lol.

OMG Zombies1) Zombie Temporary Tattoos ($3.89)
2) Super Heroes Hair Bows ($7.95)
3) X-Plore Gear Emergency Paracord Bracelets | Set Of 2| Flint Fire Starter, Whistle, Compass & Scraper/Knife ($8.99)
4) Bio Hazard Necklace Zombie Apocalypse ($9.55)
5) Don’t Open Dead Inside Walking Dead Earrings ($9.95)
6) Zombie Outbreak Response Team White Distressed ($9.99)
7) United States Zombie Hunting License Permit ($9.99)
8) Zombie Parts Mirror Danglers Chains Race Accessory Dead Walking($17.95)

Watermelon Wednesday: Already Considering

Watermelon Wednesday

I’m one of those people who like to plan ahead, though sometimes I have very poor follow through. At this time I’m considering doing some DIY holiday gifts this year. You might be thinking that it’s too early to be considering such things, but I have very little time to attend to such projects & I am not one of those people that can crochet an entire sweater in a couple of hours (I can make a teddy bear in about 8 though). So if I’m going to make something for everyone I need to start working on it now, to maximize the amount of time to work on them. The lovely yarn from Fabric.com that I chose to feature today I thought might make a great afghan or scarf for my nephew. Do you like to plan ahead & are you any good at seeing those plans through?

Fantastical Friday: Spring LARP

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

I love a good game & spring can be a wonderful time to get back into the outdoor games we love so much. It can be nice enough out to get away with lighter materials, though I will still keep my traveling cloak handy, because you never know what the weather really has in mind. The rebirth of the world around us makes a perfect setting if you happen to play a druidic type character, though in my case I tend to stick with the shady types, lol. I often find it difficult to locate just the right pieces for my characters at an acceptable price, but if you’re willing to persevere, or DIY, you will eventually have what you need. Armor is particularly difficult, should you be playing a fighter type, but some cardboard, duct tape & metalic paint can give you something that looks good on the cheap. Never give up your quest. 😉 Naturally, today’s concept is roguish & all of the items were found on Amazon, hope you enjoy it as much as I do. 😀

Roguish
Hanmorla Womens Sexy Long Sleeve Off Shoulder Lace Up Tie Front Tops T-shirt Blouse ($12.91)
Plus Size Faux Leather Leggings Lightweight High Waisted for Women ($14.99)

Also found a few weapons suitable for the class. 😉 Thought it would be best if they were separate from the outfit.

Watermelon Wednesday: Macabre Like That

Watermelon Wednesday
So we all know (maybe not if you’re a first time reader) that I have an affinity for Halloween & all its symbolism. Which leads to how I stumbled across these Tibetan style beads while I was browsing the wares at Panda Hall. These lovelies appear to be smiling (a bit lewdly, lol) which I think adds something to their charm. I’m going to have to order a lot or two, though I haven’t yet decided how I’m going to use them, yet. They could easily be used to embellish one of my bags, or maybe to help set off a pendant…. I’m sure I will put them to great use after they arrive, but I will continue pondering their possibilities at any rate, lol. How would you use them?

Magnificent Monday: Cate Blanchett

Magnificent Monday

This Australian marvel has won numerous awards for both theater & big screen performances. Blanchett speaks to both my inner fashionista & my inner nerd (not that I keep either of those hidden, lol). I could never forget her legendary portrayal of the iconic Galadriel, which was beyond spectacular (as if you couldn’t tell by my prior use of the word legendary). I’m also looking forward to the November release of Thor: Ragnarok, where she has been cast as Hela. So, yeah, having a couple of nerdgasms here, LOL. I also appreciate that she’s done some voice work for Family Guy, not everyone would be willing to have their names associated with such scathing social satire.

Her style is elegant & often conservative, compared to many starlets who appear to feel they are in a contest to see who can wear the least at public events (not trying to down this empowerment, just making a note that Blanchett has made vastly different choices for her public image). She tends to favor lovely dangle earrings & bold necklaces, so I have taken that into account while putting together today’s wishlist. Today’s choice selections were found at OASAP, from their ever evolving selection of goodies.

Blanchett Inspired1) Vintage Silver Tone Water Drop Pendant Necklace ($6.99)
2) Bold Layer Necklace ($6.99)
3) Antique Cone Pattern Drop Earrings ($7.59)
4) Demure Floral Dangle Necklace ($9.99)
5) Stylish Pearl Crystal Rhinestone Necklace ($11.99)
6) FashionSterling Silver Zircon Decoration Pearl Earrings ($14.99)
7) Retro Multi-layer Stainless Steel Chain Necklace ($14.99)
8) Vintage Luxe Faux Pearl Chain Necklace ($16.99)
9) 925 Sterling Silver Freshwater Pearl Dangle Earrings ($19.99)
Long or short, bag or shoe, however you choose to wear the new lace this spring—make it your own.

This time I was wandering about on Amazon & started to look around for spring themed goodies.
