Fantastical Friday: Stylish Armor

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Armor selection can be difficult for a good character, even if you plan a DIY. Sometimes you just have to know someone who makes great pieces (if you do, I could use an introduction LOL). I found a few pieces that could easily coordinate well with a warrior or squire style, but as per usual I had a lot of difficulty tracking down many options with this sort of item. I found all of these pieces at Amazon & while some may be a bit more expensive than I usually like showcase about there is a lot of quality & craftsmanship that goes into the higher quality pieces. Game on! 😀

Fantastical Friday: A Darker Rogue

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

With it being a bit late to do a post for May the fourth be with you I decided to go with a LARP character idea instead. I have occasion to play very dark assassin characters, especially when I feel I am under a lot of stress, as I find it helps release some of my negative emotions in a safe way. So today I present a darker rogue & while it may not be advisable in a real situation to broadcast that you’re a killer the more blatant accessories are fun in a LARP anyway. The entire ensemble collection I present to you today I found at Amazon. I hope you’re all having a great time & game on!

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)
5) Watch Gear Ring ($8.99)
6) Gold Snake Armband ($9.99)

Fantastical Friday: These Boots Were Made for LARPing

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

If you’ve been following me for a bit you’re probably aware that I love a good LARP. You’ve probably also noticed that I don’t stick to one character for very long, I’m the kind of person that likes to branch out & have a myriad of experiences. Role play has long been, to me, like an interactive novel & I love it. Anyway, it can be important to not only have cool looking, but somewhat practical, foot gear to help accessorize a character. Like a lot of women, for some inexplicable reason, I love shoes, LOL. I was shopping around at Target & found a wonderful collection of boots that set my mind into a whirl of character possibilities. I haven’t fleshed out any of the characters in this post as part of the fun is applying your own imagination to the possibilities presented. It’s also true that a few of these are a bit more expensive than what I would normally like to pay, but they pulled at my heart strings so I felt that they should be included anyway. (Besides, maybe I can catch them on a clearance sale at some point, LOL)

LARPing Boots1) Women’s Quinn Fashion Boots ($23.98)
2) Women’s Kamari Fashion Boots ($26.98)
3) Women’s Lexie Wedge Bootie ($34.99)
4) Women’s Fringed Ankle Boots ($37.99)
5) Cover Islet W Booties ($39.99)
6) Women’s Gia-Mia Rock Star Studded Combat Boot ($44.99)
7) Journee Collection Women’s Boots ($54.99)
8) Women’s Katherine Leather Engineer Boot ($79.99)
9) Durango Women’s Fringe Western Boots ($169.99)

Fantastical Friday: Zombies :D

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Those of you who’ve been following my blog for a while are no doubt aware of my deep & abiding love for horror, which naturally goes into the realm of the zombie apocalypse. I have to mention that my heart hangs a bit low at this time, while Daryl is in a time of crisis & no one knows yet if he lives. ❤ Being something of a comic fan of The Walking Dead as well I really, really, really do not want to live through the loss of Glenn again, but I am not willing to trade Daryl for him. I would like to keep the core cast as much as possible & also note that Denise died in the place of Abraham, which both pleased & upset me. Maybe I should stop babbling about my stories….. Not sure if I’m spoiling anything, but the build up to the season finale, which comes on Sunday, is somewhat traumatic & I imagine episode 16 is going to be worse……. Anyway, I was shopping around at Amazon & found a few cool things, have to say the zombied Wonder Woman is perhaps the most horrific item I have ever seen in my life, LOL.

On a semi-related note, last week I was out shopping, which I’m sure comes as no shock to you, well maybe that it wasn’t a virtual shop, LOL. Anyway, after I checked out & my man & I went to the parking lot, we found ourselves in an interesting stick figure situation…. I’m sure we’ve all seen the stick figure family decals that are on a LOT of cars, well the car on the side closest to the store had an obviously zombified family of stick figures. The car on the other side had a well armed stick figure family & was captioned below, “we hate zombies” & we had the uncomfortable position of being between the zombies & the zombie hunters, LOL. Thought that silly little moment might amuse you, maybe even as much as it amused me at the time. 😀

Zombies1) Original Wonder Woman DC Comics Zombie String Doll Keychain ($6.13)
2) Artix A+ Zombie Outbreak Response Squad GLO Womens T-shirt Tee ($8.99)
3) New! Plants Vs Zombies Punk Style Slippers Winter Warm Shoes ($10.82)
4) Women’s ZOMBIE KILLER White Tank Top ($17.95)
5) Cat – Zombie Cat Shirt: I would push you in front of Zombie ($18.99)
6) Women’s If Zombies Chase Us I’m Tripping You Funny T-Shirt ($20.99)
7) Losnger Women’s Plants Vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 T Shirt ($23.99)
8) Training For the Zombie Apocalypse Funny Work Out Tank Top Racerback Running Shirt ($22.99)

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: Black Widow

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

I thought it might be about time to do another cosplay post. This time I’ve been working with a little more DIY than my previous cosplay suggestions. Much as the title suggests Marvel’s Black Widow is the focus today. Everything included in this article comes from Amazon & Wigsbuy. The more I consider the base costume the more I am likely to use cardboard & some gold tone spray paint for the bracers/armguards, but I chose to keep the list I compiled as is, besides you might like the leather pieces better. 😉 The combat boots may not be accurate for most of her manifestations, but they strike me as ultimately practical for a butt kicking super spy. For the belt DIY you might want to use an adhesive that works with metal, clay & plastic & the wig can be easily trimmed to customize for which comic book, show, or movie hairstyle you like best (if you aren’t already blessed with gorgeous red hair). 😛 I hope you have as much fun with this cosplay idea as I’m having. 😀

Widow Costume1) Forever Women’s Plain Long Sleeves Wetlook Bodysuit Leotard Top ($12.99)
2) Isadora Paccini Women’s Leggings ($14.99)
3) Kali Footwear Women’s Faux Leather Combat Boots ($26.99)
4) Leather Bracers Vambraces Armguards ($49.99)

Widow Belt1) Ladies Metal Circle Chain Belt ($19.68)
2) Sculpey Art Clay III ($2.49)
3) Folk Art 414 2-Ounce Acrylic Paint, Cardinal Red ($1.64)
4) Folk Art 925 2-Ounce Acrylic Paint, Wrought Iron ($5.10)
5) DecoArt Americana DuraClear Varnishes ($4.39)

Widow Wig1) Best Quality Wig Cap 2pack ($19.99)
2) Japanese Lolita Style Dark Red Color Cosplay Wigs 26 Inches ($35.99)

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.

Colorful Controller1) 3CLeader® Case Cover Shell Skin for PS4 DualShock 4 Controller with Buttons Chrome Plating Color Purple ($16.99)
