When Ashley and I decided to go to LeakyCon’s 10th anniversary, we also decided that we wanted to style each other for one of the days. We had seen tons of videos on Buzzfeed or Safiya Nygaard’s channels, so we tried it out. Let me tell you, Ashley was so much better at this than I was, but we’ll get into that in a bit. Since this was for Leaky, we went to our Hogwarts houses for inspiration.
As you may imagine, I received many nerdy presents for Christmas this year. I love getting nerdy things, I love that my friends and family understand my nerdyness. And this year was no exception to the fun nerdy gifts I’m used to. Below are some of my favorite ones.
Gather fellow fangirls and fanboys! We are about to start on a dark and beautiful adventure together. Where you ask are we venturing? Well since you asked so nicely, we are going to be discussing one of my favorite topics; villains. I have what I lovingly call a villain complex where in every story, whether it be on the page or on the screen I am immediately drawn to the villain character. It doesn’t matter who or what they are, they always fascinate me. They always have the best costumes, one liners and ice cold stares. I am happy to introduce you, my fellow villain lovers, to the Villain’s Throne. Here at the Villain’s Throne we will discuss villains and what makes them a great, or even not so great, villain.
Hey Fangirls and Potterheads alike! This week I’d like for our villain chat to not be about one person, but a position. The “cursed” position at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry; Defense Against the Dark Arts.
Time to drink up, Fangirls! This week I’ve got a slew of recipes for you. Word to the wise, don’t try these all if you have to go to bed early that evening, because the amount of sugar in them is freaking ridiculous.
So for awhile now, Black Milk has been releasing sweet clothes for nerds. But this week, it was announced that they would be releasing Hogwarts quidditch dresses. What better way to return to Hogwarts than in style?
