I was lucky enough to be able to attend FanX 2017 this past weekend, March 17 and 18. It was a blast! I always have such an amazing time when I get to go! And this post is all about the fun things that I either bought, was given, or won! I think you will be surprised at one of the things I got, I know I was when they gave it to me..
Choker necklaces are really big right now (I see them every where!). So what better way to show my Harry Potter pride than by making me a golden snitch choker?? It’s super easy and didn’t take me very long to make at all! And what Harry Potter nerd wouldn’t love to be wearing their very own personal golden snitch?!
I like making things, I tend to do it quite a lot. I especially like making things that I can wear! Add in the fact that it is a nerd related wearable item and I am sold!! I thought that I would share with you how to make this SUPER easy DIY Harry Potter shirt! The best part is that you can use this technique to make a shirt for any fandom that you are a part of!
Hello fellow nerds!! Below is a list of 4 fandom deaths that I am STILL upset about! And to quote River Song, “Spoilers!” If you haven’t read Harry Potter, or seen season seven of Doctor Who proceed with caution!
4 fandom deaths I am still upset about!
Dobby is one of the under appreciated characters in the Harry Potter series. I loved his kindness and how humble he is. He was such an example of unconditional love. When Bellatrix threw the knife and Dobby ended up dying in Harry Potter’s arms I cried. This was one of the deaths that I cried the most about in Harry Potter. Their were a couple others, but this one still makes me upset!
I started this post originally thinking that I would do my favorite fictional characters and then quickly realized this post would be forever long if I included both TV and movie characters. So here is my favorite fictional book characters! It was so hard for me to choose my favorites because I love so many! But these are my very favorite ones!
Favorite fictional book characters
Trisana Chandler in Circle of Magic and the Circle Opens series by Tamora Pierce
Tris is such a complex character. She is comes across as rather stand-offish and like she doesn’t need anyone else. When in actuality she is just looking for friends and people to care about her. I think this is something to remember when dealing with people in real life. Keep reading
I have had an occasion to meet a couple of celebrities, thank you Salt Lake Comic Con! And I have have definitely fangirled when meeting some of them. Usually I’m pretty good at keeping it together when I actually meet the celebrity, USUALLY being the key word. It’s when I am walking away that I geek out. Check out these four times I totally fangirled.
Four times I totally fangirled
Tom Felton was the second celebrity that I had met, the first being Karen Gillian. I was standing in his autograph line for a about four hours and as we were snaking our way to the autograph table I started freaking out. Usually, I can contain myself when I am actually meeting a celebrity. However, I geek out when I am about to meet them or after I have just met them. I was dressed up as Bellatrix Lestrange in her prison costume, which he commented on. 🙂 As I was walking away I got really excited and almost started hyperventilating. My sister, who was in the the autograph line with me, told me if I passed out she was going to leave me there. 🙂 Keep reading

This cost picture cost me $20.00. I also have a Doctor Who Rose and 10, a golden snitch picture, and a Hunger Games symbol picture that I got at a different time. The seller was offering a “buy two, get one free” deal. I made sure to take advantage of that! Keep reading
