Definitely one of my favorite #fandom5 posts! Check out how I styled this #Marvel  crop top 5 different ways :)
This Fandom Friday really spoke to my heart being fashion related! As you all know, I love putting together stylish geeky outfits, so I had fun with this one. It was tough to choose just one fandom item, but I finally settled on the fandom crop top. Sure, you may think that a ...

Check out my first post of the new year featuring super cute AND super affordable Sailor Moon tights, moonies!!!
I used to be one for new years resolutions and wishes. I would ponder on the year that passed and make goals for the next. I'm so over that. I don't know if it has something to do with the rough year I had or just growing up, but I rather just continue living. I still love what a new year ...

I visited Diagon Alley in Universal Orlando this past weekend! Check out what I thought about the experience on the blog today; http://melificent.com/2014/10/27/diagon-alley-visit/
I hope all of you survived the Mercury Retrograde unscathed. I can't necessarily say I did, but thankfully I closed it out with a visit to Diagon Alley in Orlando! I had been ridiculously excited to see what they had done with the expansion, and I was not disappointed. The new park is perfection ...

Rant Away (Frustrations)  - 
 
I know a lot of us are fans of Gold Bubble Clothing, and I placed an order for a dress from their Sherlock collection back in July. Well, it finally arrived and I was so excited since I would be able to wear it to #NYCC , but....it's covered in blue streaks?!? Has anyone else experienced this? I am so so so bummed b/c it fits perfectly otherwise :(

Via their FB page:

Every so often we get a customer asking why there appears to be a faint bluish stripe on our "Bored" print. Some wonder if it's a printing error. We assure you, it is not, and we'll tell you why!

The iconic "Bored" wallpaper is a perfect example of one of the challenges routinely faced by those in the replica prop and costuming worlds - screen accuracy versus actual in-person accuracy. Often how something appears on screen is NOT how it actually looks in person. For example, Voldemort's cloak appears black in the films due to the filters they used, but in reality is actually a dark green!

The real wallpaper (which we have a swatch of) has a repeating blue/teal stripe pattern running through it. Often, due to lighting, the wallpaper has the appearance of being just black and white, or brown and tan.

So the question was, do we design our print to be accurate to what you think the wallpaper looks like, or what it actually looks like? The answer? Somewhere in-between! We chose to include a faded teal stripe in our print that is less shockingly blue than what is on the actual wallpaper, while still representing the presence of the stripe for those eagle-eyed fans who really know what the wallpaper looks like. If you've never noticed the stripes before, you'll now never be able to unsee them

For comparison, we here's a picture of our "Bored" leggings next to our wallpaper swatch.

And now you know!

Check out my review of Fandom of the Month Club! I thought my first package was SO fun! 
Fandom of the Month Club is a completely genius idea! It is a monthly subscription box, but filled with fandom jewelry. The fandom changes monthly giving everyone an opportunity to geek out to their favorites. I follow the creator, Erin (@thegeekycauldron on IG), and when I saw her posts ...

Check out my #ootd  straight from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!! http://melificent.com/2015/02/16/what-i-wore-sassy-witch/
On yet another Monday (why do they keep popping up every week?), I figured I'd go back to my happy place for yet another magical outfit post! This one was by far the biggest hit of the weekend – I was proudly waving my Gryffindor flag highly and it showed. I got a bunch of cheers and hisses from ...

Check out my recap of #NYCC2014!!! http://bit.ly/1t2goQi
NYCC was a total blur. I only went for the weekend, and had the most amazing time meeting friends old and new. I have to say I was a bit overwhelmed! I spent both Friday and Saturday walking the exhibit floor, and there was so much to see. Being my first time at NYCC, the main thing I took from ...

Check out what are my convention must haves on the blog; http://bit.ly/1uHPjzw
Ah, the convention life. It's a tough one, but someone has got to live it, amiright? All silliness aside, I love me a good geeky convention. Thankfully, Miami is stepping up to the plate and hosting quite a few in the months to come, but I still find myself eager to travel to check out what the ...
