Thanks to A Geeky Gal I first read about Fandom Friday. I decided a while ago that I would take part in these sorts of posts. These will cover just my general geekiness as well as gaming things. In some cases it will be one or the other or a mix of both within one post. This is my first ever Fandom Friday and I would start with a prompt that just caught my eye immediately. This prompt, as well as Fandom Friday, was created by Nerdie Girlie.
What are my favourite things that were bought at cons?
I buy a lot of geeky stuff at cons or in shops when I’m given the opportunity. I was once asked what I got for Christmas and this person then said and please don’t say any of that geeky stuff. I’m sorry but I am completely not sorry that most, if not all, of my Christmas presents were geeky in one way or another. I can also safely and happily say that a lot of what I buy myself is geeky, especially when I have been to a con. Here are some things that I have bought at cons.
I saw these and had to have them. I had to make sure to get 2 so they weren’t lonely (please say I’m not the only person who thinks this way?). I can’t remember who made these so sadly I can’t direct you to the creator but if you happen to have a similar thing or know who created these then let me know and I can add in a link. They are so sweet and sit together quite happily. I love seeing these sat together as their smiles look so cute and happy.
Game Box Coasters
These are so cool and cover some of my favourite nostalgic games. These aren’t really used as coasters but instead act as tiny decorations for on my chest of drawers. Plus as a bonus the Spyro coaster is now guarded by a Spyro keyring.
I met the fantastic Flutterby at a con years and years ago. The first thing I saw on their stall was all the owls and I knew I had to buy at least one. A combination of owls and geeky characters is perfect to me. I bought these little owls and they have been right at home ever since. I wish I had some more because they are just wonderful.
Pikachu Mandala picture
Silhouette Artwork is absolutely lovely. If you happen to see a booth for them at a con go visit and chat. When I bought this picture I was torn between several designs but at the time could only get one so I chose Pikachu because of my love of Pikachu. I have seen some other designs on the Etsy site for holographic pictures that I am seriously tempted by. Oh the temptation so go check out their work.
I’m going to continue the Pikachu theme for my last mention. I have only bought these two at a con because who is going to be able to say no to a Team Rocket Pikachu or a Pirate Pikachu. Well I can’t anyway so they just had to come home with me (and yes as a pair so they weren’t lonely). I got so many comments from others who loved this pair when I was still wandering round the con and kept directing people to the stall where I got them from.
I have other options that I could go with but they also fit with other prompts so keep an eye in future for geeky accessories or jewellery posts.
What are your favourite geeky items that you have bought from cons? Let me know in the comments.
