Geeky pixel and video game inspired resume!

Annoyance #47 about being engaged to a graphic designer: They always want to try to “fix up” your resume. My hubby-to-be is applying for programmer jobs, and I was concerned the design of his resume might have been a little lackluster. Of course, I may have also read this Mashable article about a girl who applied to an agency with a unique Lego resume. How original and creative! So then I put on the Frozen soundtrack, had a glass of wine, and I just “let it go” on his resume. Hehe.

This is a low quality version but I will be posting the original high quality version in a few hours. I left it at home on my other computer. Stay tuned ;)

Top 5 Cosplays on my Cosplay Bucket List

I’m getting the itch… to cosplay! So for 2014 and 2015 I am going to try to knock out as many of these as possible. The costumes for my chosen 5 are simple enough, so I can see this goal being completely attainable. Plus the world totally needs more cosplaying… and I need to do my part if we’re going to make the world a more colorful place <3

annie-league-of-legends

Annie from League of Legends

Annie is one I’ve dreamt of ever since Mark began playing League of Legends religiously. She’s adorable and evil, a combination that I’m a huge fan of. She has this epic bear named Tibbers that she can summon… he is her faithful bear slave and destroyer of worlds. Annie has a really cute purple dress, adorable bear backpack, random cat ears, and adorable 80′s leg warmers. In short, she’s a cute fireball of purpley goodness.

kiss-the-girl-ariel

Kiss the Girl Ariel from Disney’s The Little Mermaid

Ariel cosplays can be tricky, considering she’s a freaking fish. And I don’t see myself laying around a pool with my big green fin any time soon, so I’ve chosen to do “Kiss the girl” Ariel, or Kingdom dress Ariel. It’s recognizable enough, but I’ll actually get to use legs! The wig is key for this costume, for sure.

lydia-deetz

Lydia from Beetlejuice the cartoon

One of my absolutely favorite cartoons as a kid was Beetlejuice. Lydia wore a fantastic spiderweb poncho, pink and purple eyeshadow, and a crazy ponytail that just don’t quit. It not only seems extremely comfortable, but recognizable as well. My hope is that I could get a Beetlejuice to cosplay with me, but I think this one can be recognizable alone as well.

peter-pan

Disney’s Peter Pan

Peter Pan was a childhood idol of mine. He’s one of those androgynous cosplays that guys and girls can typically pull off. Peter is a young boy, and that makes girls the perfect choice to portray his youthful clean shaven look. We all know in the musical, he is usually played by a woman. And Peter represents a large part of my childhood and that notion of staying young forever. He’s adventurous, brave, charming and super cute! I gotta crow!

tina-belcher

Tina Belcher from Bob’s Burgers

BRB, writing erotic friend fiction. Tina Belcher was not my first choice for a Bob’s Burgers cosplay – it has always been Louise. But the more hilarious character development I see of Tina, the more I absolutely love her. She totally represents all of our awkward selves in our teen years, whether we like it or not. And again, it’s a simple costume that will be easy to put together. The key with this cosplay is that I believe it’s a must-do-as-a-group cosplay, which is why I am hoping me and my friends can do a Bob’s Burger group at New York Comic Con this year! So don’t be such a boob punch, and come hang out with me and Comic Con!

New products available in my Etsy store!

Despite my feverish attempts to get my wedding stuff squared away, I have had some time to create a few new stickers for all of your lovers of kawaii geekery. So… tada! I have 3 new stickers available in my Etsy, Word to Your Unicorn!


All those Loki fangirls can get their fix by showing their love for the bad boy Loki! Are you a Hiddlestoner? Do you have a Loki shrine in your room? Do you think Tom Hiddleston is the hottest guy in Asgard? Jump on that bandwagon and get yourself a sticker!


Tom Riddle is just a sad misunderstood man. The power and glory of House Slytherin must have gone to his head, but he still needs love! He who must not be named… must also be stuck to things, so buy a sticker today!


Everyone’s favorite bad bitch, Maleficent, is here to prick all of our fingers and hearts with her adorable kawaii self on this sticker! Soon she will be gracing the silver screen in the form of Angelina Jolie, and I just can’t wait!

I’d love suggestions on loveable villains you’d like to see in sticker form, so post your favorite baddies in a comment!

The Beer & Board Games Drinking Game

Beer and Board Games is a fabulous YouTube show where 4 guys get together, drink a lot of beer, and play board games. It’s full of epic things, like Baby Cookie, a creepy baby with a weird voice… epic Christopher Walken impressions… and Cape Date. It’s also full of crazy moments of Sloan Rage, in which Matt Sloan gets very angry… Dylan being ridiculously drunk and adorable… and Aaron being generally hilarious. So, I decided to make a Drinking Game to go along with the show.
