Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

It’s been a while since I explored some of the LARP options available at Amazon, my usual site to explore for odds & ends I’m unlikely to find at any of my other favored shops. I do love my games & a little fantasy never hurt anyone, lol. 😉 You’ll find that most of these items are pretty practical & might even come in handy for a Renaissance Fair (not to mention various convention looks). I hope you get as much enjoyment out of an occasional break from the pressures of reality as I do, stay safe & stay sane. 😉

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Still struggling with computer issues (yeah, I know, this was supposed to be solved) my posts have been a little last minute lately, due to the continuing issues. So I decided to keep today’s post fairly light, especially with the difficulties with having time to shop about, put together the pics & figure out what I might write about. 😛 Hopefully the technical issues I’ve been subjected to are at an end, but we’ll see how things work out. Anyway, trying to cheer myself up under the circumstances I went browsing around Amazon, mostly looking at jewelry items of a fantastical nature, the sort of thing I especially enjoy. 😉 Naturally, I compiled a little wishlist from the results. 😀

Fantastical Friday: Sweet Unboxing

Fantastical Friday

Finally, I’m back. New computer came in & something else really cool turned up too! A bit back I had entered a contest on twitter being held by Dark Horse Comics & shock of all shocks, I was one of the winners. I said it was shocking because I haven’t won anything of note for 23 years, lol. I didn’t do a video or anything, just took pics of the basic steps & edited the pics for text & some emoji I placed (please forgive the flash). So here goes, my first unboxing for this blog 😀

unboxing01

Not a big reveal, but the initial opening does hint at some of the treasures inside. My excitement was running over a bit at this point, LOL.

unboxing02

A charming move on their part, they included a card that thanked me for being a fan & wished me a joyful holiday. ❤

unboxing03

We all know I love zombie stories & this one appears to be along similar lines, so this should be an epic & exciting read. Like all the manga I have encountered before the book is composed in reverse from the standard western order.

unboxing04

The flash made his feet disappear, so I felt it wasn’t outrageous to place the emoji over the glow. As I’m not a serious collector, I tend to take things out of their packages, so this sinister guy is now decorating my desk. I am impressed with his texturing & careful paint job. Also looking forward to the final battle in Game of Thrones, when our story reaches its climax.

unboxing05

Dark Horse does a lot of movie & show based comics, so it isn’t really that shocking that they have Fight Club. It was surprising that it’s hardcover, which is quite nice. Looking forward to reading this one as well, especially as it implies that it is a continuation of the story.

unboxing06

Well, this is intriguing. The cover is simple & compelling, can’t wait to crack it open to find out what happens.

Fantastical Friday: Some Nerdy Music

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Growing up one of my favorite bands, Rush, has been called the hardest rocking nerds on Earth, LOL. Though I do have to note that when Rolling Stone Magazine said that the article did include some misinformation, mentioning that they quoted Tolkien. now I might not be an expert, but the only band I have actually heard speak Tolkien is considered much more mainstream & that would be Led Zeppelin, or more specifically their song Ramble On. Of course both bands have some amazing music, many of which have some very haunting qualities. Hope you enjoy some of these as much as I do! 😉

Fantastical Friday: More Character Accessories

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Not only do I enjoy a good LARP but I also absolutely love accessorizing my characters. Fleshing out a character with the right pieces can enhance the play experience a lot, through mood setting if nothing else. Of course you can always add some back story to the more impressive treasures, like family a heirloom or an emotional connection to some past tragedy, which could even relate to what motivates the character to action. Sometimes it’s just nice to let loose & enjoy what I think of as an interactive fantasy or sci/fi novel. 😉 Naturally I found a few cool selections at Shop HalloweenCostumes.com which you can check out below. 😀

Character Accessories1) Pirate Gold Earrings ($3.99)
2) Dragon Tooth Necklace ($4.99)
3) Native Warrior Arrowhead Necklace ($5.99)
4) Dragon Armband ($7.99)

Fantastical Friday: If Only, Comic Con

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

How is it that I somehow miss Memphis Comic Con every freaking year? I suppose I could blame work this year, keeping me busy during the couple of days the event was active. Really though Memphis is not very good at announcing when such events are being planned & when I decided to devote the hours needed to researching on the net when it might be held it was already too late to change my schedule. 😦 So yet another year of no local comic con.

So anyway, I thought might feel a little better if I did some comic related shopping. I was right, I do feel a little better. All of the items I found were on Amazon & while I am not going to order every item I looked at (can’t really pull some of them off lol) I am treating myself to a few. 😉

Fantastical Friday: How Do You Slay?

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

We all know I’m a nerd from way back, lol & lately I’ve been thinking about some of the many ways I like to geek out. So I compiled a little collection of potential LARP characters & threw in a cosplay for good measure. 😉 Keeping with the theme set forth in the title I also compiled a selection of mock weaponry to go with each. I have to admit that I am the least satisfied with the dance cane for Batgirl, it’s only 3 feet long & it looks more appropriate for a stage magician. But what can I do, they had no batarangs & nothing else fit the character as well, in the end it’s all about imagination anyway, lol. Anyway I found everything in this post at Spirit Halloween.

Slaying Costumes1) Sorcery and Seduction Adult Womens Plus Size Costume ($22.49)
2) Dragon Ninja Adult Womens Costume ($26.99)

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.

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.

Original Series Costuming1) CosplaySky Star Trek The Female Duty Uniform Yellow Dress Costume ($29.99)2) CosplaySky Star Trek The Female Duty Uniform Blue Dress Costume ($29.99)3) CosplaySky Star Trek The Female Duty Uniform Red Dress Costume ($29.99)4) Star Trek: The Original Series: Communicator ($38.13)5) Diamond Select Toys Star Trek: The Original Series Black Handle Phaser ($28.01)6) Star Trek Tricorder Replica Small Messenger Bag (19.97)

TNG Costuming
1) Star Trek The Next Generation Deluxe Jumpsuit Costume (price range $17.39 – $29.13) 2) Star Trek The Next Generation Authentic Full Size COMMUNICATOR Metal PIN (17.95)3) Rubies Costumes Star Trek Next Generation Phaser Gun ($9.99)
