I have more than enough to do two lists… possibly even three Here are some of the fandom-related LEGO creations that caught my eye this year at my local LEGO convention, Brickfair VA. Clickity-click the photos for larger versions.

I saw Jurassic World in theaters in June, then I recently came across these cups from McDonalds when going through some of my boxes from my childhood and thought I should make them a post here.
At a recent con, someone saw my multi-fandom fangirl badge label and asked me what I fangirl. I find it impossible to answer that question; there are just too many fandoms!

This might be old news by the time it finally hits my blog (I schedule posts way ahead of time!), but apparently Darth Vader has adopted a stretch of highway to clean up near my old stomping grounds. Henry Wakley, a school bus driver, adopted the highway in Blacksburg in Darth Vader’s name.

Every year for Harry’s birthday, my local Harry Potter group throws a birthday party. And every year, Miriah makes an impressively magical cake. This year, she went traditional. In addition to butterbeer cake pops, she made this great, movie-canon cake:
The hardest part was lighting it. It took five of us to block the wind long enough to get the candles all lit. Another breeze came up just as we were finishing singing the Harry Birthday song, so we stood back and let “Harry” blow the candles out on his own.
But, just as we moved in to cut the cake, most of the candles magically relit themselves! It took a few more breezes for the candles to finally go out completely.
Then, of course, came the eating of it
