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 LARPย 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The second item in this listing will require a bit more effort should you choose to makeย 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

DIY Ideas1) Natural Crystal Pointed Pendants, with Platinum Tone Brass Wire ($1.96/2pc)
2) Arrow Head Dyed Natural Agate Cabochons, Mixed Color ($6.15/5pc)
3) Mini Cute Small Cork Stopper Glass Jar Glass Bottles, Decorative Storage Pendants ($10.19/200pc)
4) Stainless Steel Wing Pendants ($10.76/50pc)

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 willย still keep myย 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Naturally, today’s concept is roguish & all of the items were found on Amazon, hope you enjoy it as much as I do. ๐Ÿ˜€

Watermelon Wednesday: And in the Darkness Bind Them

Watermelon Wednesday

So y’all already know, I’m that kind of nerd, LOL. Naturally, when it came to be time to spotlight something from WBShop, I simply could not resist the call of the one ring, we can’t all be nearly immune hobbits. While winter is officially gone, it’s still bound to do a bit of wrestling with spring, rendering it appropriate to have a reminder of the darker season.Without further delay, I bring you the precious……

Watermelon Wednesday: Batpack

Watermelon Wednesday

With my great love for all things goth & comic book enjoyment, I just couldn’t resist this lovely I found at Tidebuy. There were several items I considered for this spotlight, but when I saw this particular backpack it shot my thoughts of anything else straight away, lol. What could be more perfect of a bag for me? Well, maybe…. if there were spiders…. I’ll stop digressing now, lol, as per usual with this site I’ve listed the full price, though it will be on some kind of sale anytime you visit, it just won’t be the same sale I’m looking at. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hope you’re all having a wonderful week & looking forward to an even more wondrous weekend (that’s if you’re not like me, working the weekend & all, LOL). โค

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. ๐Ÿ˜› 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Naturally, I compiled a little wishlist from the results. ๐Ÿ˜€

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 Comicsย & 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 ๐Ÿ˜€

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. โค

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! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Fantastical Friday: Toril Bound

Sometimes I want a whimsical ensemble without getting into character. For those of you who haven’t read any Forgotten Realms books, or gamed in that setting, Toril is the name of the world it is centered on. If you’ve been following me for any length of time then you know how much I enjoy a good fantasy novel as well as role play. Table top or LARP, it hardly matters which, I have a great time. So today I did a bit of shopping around at Amazon & found a few wondrous selections that I am sure to enjoy when in a mood for all things fantastical. ๐Ÿ˜‰
