Top Ten: Fandom Creations at Brickfair (part 1)

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.

Made it Monday: Avengers Bag

Here’s the Avengers bag I put together for my partner for the Avengers fandom swap. It was a fun one!

Thing Thursday: Jurassic Cups

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.

Top Ten: Fandoms I Don’t Fangirl

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! Instead, I find it easier to answer the question a friend asked me after a Harry Potter meetup a few months ago: what aren’t you into? Sorry if some (or all) of these are your favorite.

Thing Thursday: Keychains

Two keychains I purchased during the Brickfair yardsale. I can’t wait to hang them up to display them in my LEGO loft!

Wildcard Wednesday: Darth Vader Cleans Up

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. Not only does the sign give one a chuckle, but he actually goes out to clean the area wearing a Darth Vader mask. How much fun would that be to see as you’re driving by?

When I was at Virginia Tech, my adopted highway with the honors community service group wasn’t too far from this particular road. So it’s great to see the program still at work and that someone is putting fandom to good use!

Made it Monday: Tony Stark MOC

Here’s the Habitat MOC (my own creation) I made of Tony Stark in his lab.

Habitat-Tonys

You can’t see from this angle, but he has a keyboard angled right in front of him and a computer monitor turned toward him.

Thing Thursday: Harry Potter Pops

I had some Hot Topic “Hot Cash” to spend, and these new POP figures were too adorable to resist. I mean, seriously, Snape doesn’t get much cuter than this.

Wildcard Wednesday: Harry’s Birthday Cake

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 :-)
