"The basic idea of 5 Fandom Fridays is to write a weekly Friday blog post in the form of a top 5 list based on a predetermined topic. It'll give your readers a deeper insight into your fandoms and your blogging personality. It's a great way to avoid bloggers block and sleep well knowing that you have at least 4-5 planned posts for the month."
I'm already a bit behind, but am excited to start posting here a little more regularly. As I recently posted, the Female Geek Bloggers G+ Community really has me wanting to dive back in to my own personal blogging, and chatting up my geek passions and projects.
So on to for this week's 5 Fandom Friday post - Geeky Clothing Items I Need In My Closet Immediately.
#1 - As perhaps indicated by my book The Star Trek Craft Book, I love me some Star Trek. This "Adopt a Tribble" TeeFury tee is too cute and the perfect companion to another Tribble shirt I already own, "The Tribble with Tribbles" from We Love Fine. And everyone knows, once you have one Tribble (shirt), they tend to reproduce.
#2 - Speaking of We Love Fine...hot on the heels of the recent announcement that Thor will soon be a female character in the comic books, this "She is Worthy" tee from We Love Fine is indeed worthy...of joining my geek closet.
#3 - I would love to bust out this Molly Weasley-inspired sweater from the Harry Potter movie "Chamber of Secrets" in the upcoming cold months - while a crochet fiend, I haven't ventured beyond simple shrugs in the sweater territory. These sleeves on this beauty would be challenging but rewarding once complete.
#4 - I would love to wear this to the premiere of the next Hobbit movie next month. I love subtle geeky references - many people would see this as an artsy tree but geeks would recognize it as the Tree of Gondor, and those are the people I want to hang with.
#5 - I've recently started working out at a gym (again) and find myself in need of more workout clothes. This Doctor Who inspired tank would do quite nicely. Check out the rest of Activate Apparel's site - they have quite a few geeky reference shirts, such as Doctor Who, Star Trek, and more general Nerdy.
BONUS - another fun tank to exercise in would be this replica of the Battlestar Galactica double-tank.
Bonus #2 - while not geeky clothing technically, I've recently been eyeing this Lord of the Rings-inspired bracelet called "Baggins." I love how chunky it is (very "on-trend" these days), with the subtle homage to Arwen's necklace and The One Ring.
I had fun putting this post together and commend SuperSpaceChick and The Nerdy Girlie to putting the challenge together. I love the idea of lending my voice to a community of other Female Geek Bloggers, and look forward to reading other contributions to the linkup!
