More Monsters!

Introduction

Between literature, television, movies and plenty other sources of media, I’m sure creatures such as Vampires, witches, werewolves and zombies has been bashed into our heads whether we like it or not. With such a variety of these so-called “monsters” to pick from, it’s almost annoying that these are the few we always go back to. Millions of different creatures and other were-monsters wait their turn to shine, to be known for what they are. Another day. Instead of naming off many different creatures only a small few have ever heard of, and you’ll probably never hear again, I’ve selected a few different creatures that have risen in popularity as of recent. That, or maybe someday I’d like for them to rise.

The Nerdy Gimp’s Dealers Room Tips

Hello there! I feel like a slight introduction is in order before I drop my first bundle of toy collecting wisdom. My name is Ann but I also go by The Nerdy Gimp. I am a twenty something college student, toy collector, and furry creature enthusiast. I am many things but most importantly, I am a proud member of the Texas Chapter of the D20 Girls. In addition to enriching my community through the awesome dose of girl power that is the D20 Girls, I pride myself on having a pretty great toy collection. I collect everything from Star Wars, Masters of the Universe, and My Little Pony. As a child of the 80’s and early 90’s, I have refused to leave the bright and colorful world of Saturday morning cartoons behind me. I feel like I am constantly looking on eBay for my latest toy conquest or making weekly trips to my local toy store. Because the D20 girls can usually be found on the convention floor or maybe even behind our own booth, I decided that my first article should be a survival guide for convention goers so that they may enjoy their Dealer Room experience with wallets still intact, or if not, at least leave with a bounty of plastic treasures.

Angelica’s Hair

Angelica’s Hair

The silvery bell teetered above their heads as they entered.  The frosty pink ringlets on the head in front of her swished in the breeze created by the closing swing of the door before laying tamely down the back of the neck once more. Sarah caught herself pausing to hold her breath at the sight then shook her head and followed after. Angelica had been sporting this shade of dye for a few months longer than she usually kept a color, and Sarah was loath to admit it suited her sibling’s tanner complexion.  She understood well the unassuming browns of her mousey exterior left her more than a touch plainer. Swallowing her bitterness she took the bowled high stool across from her sister.

The Chic Geek: PB and Lady Rainicorn

On this installment of The Chic Geek does Adventure Time, I’m getting scientific with Princess Bubblegum and Lady Rainicorn.

Princess Bubblegum has worn a lot of fabulous outfits throughout the series(generously utilizing the color pink), but I’ve chosen to use the outfit from season 1, seen in the picture below. To recreate this look start with a light blue dress and a pink cardigan, then pay tribute to the candy kingdom by adding some sweet accessories. Since Lady Rainicorn doesn’t actually wear anything, all you need to do is deck yourself out in rainbows and unicorns(and please feel free to prance around shamelessly as you relive your childhood fantasies).
