5 Fandom Friday: Five Favorite Aliens

Happy ALMOST 4th of July! What better way to celebrate than with ALIENS!! That's what the day is all about am I right?!

{JUST KIDDING NERDS!}

Futurama {my FAVE show EVER!} is FULL of aliens and so my list is dominated by that...BUT one of my favorite movies had to get a mention too! Check out my list below!
1. Leela. Badass starship captain AND chic outfit dresser. ALSO secret superhero! I've always wanted to cosplay Clobber-ella!
2. Amy Wong. YES she is totally an alien...she is from MARS! She and Leela together are me! I want to be like Leela, but am totally a girlie girl like Amy! #PINKEVERYTHING
3. Nibbler. He is pretty much a cat and can drive a space ship. Enough said. Tho scooping his poop would be quite a hassle.

4. Morbo. He is pretty much the funniest sub-character on the show. The way he doesn't hide his loathing of the human race is perfect when delivering the news TO humans! AND he's one of the Futurama character's I haven't made into an Everyday Cosplay...adding him to the list!

5. Independence Day Aliens. This is one of my top ten favorite movies so of course I had to diverge from Futurama and give it ONE spot on my list! I LIVE for disaster movies and Independence Day is one of THE best! Lil Nerdy Girlie fact, I use to know the entire President speech at the end of the movie. I paused/played my VHS tape and wrote down the entire speech. #NerdForREELz

WOW this was one of my favorite prompts ever! I LOVE aliens! I cannot wait to see what everyone else comes up with! Share your posts in the comments below and on Twitter for a RT! Have a fun and safe holiday nerds and see you soooooooooooooooooooon at SDCC!!!!!!

What to Wear San Diego Comic Con: The Guys

When it comes to San Diego Comic Con, it is easy to get into a fashion rut. That's why I asked The Gamer Geek to help out ALL our nerd guy friends with a few outfit ideas to elevate your con style!
By: J.D aka The Gamer Geek

The uniform of geek guys everywhere -- jeans, Converse, and our favorite nerdy t-shirts. Upgrade the look by keeping it wrinkle free, fresh and clean. Add on a nerdy watch, belt buckle or nerd glasses like me to make the outfit uniquely you. Show off your geeky loves for the entire con to see. A uniquely nerdy tee can be a great conversation starter for that geek girl you make eye contact with across the H Hall line.
I can't go anywhere at Comic Con without my survival bag. Here's a peak at my must haves to get me through a day at the con. My Swiss Army cross body bag, poster tube, sharpie, badge/lanyard, phone and headphones, extra battery charger, a book to read while in line, wallet, business cards, and the most important item for dudes -- deodorant/antiperspirant.
I'm a fan of Levi 511's too -- they're comfortable but not too baggy looking. A tag less Hanes white tee and a button down shirt are a step up from the usual t-shirt. This outfit would be perfect for a night out after the con. 
Black Levi 508's, a light short sleeve shirt, and my favorite boots are the perfect combo for The Nerdy Girlie & Being Geek Chic's Geeks Go Glam party. The darker the pants the more dressier they tend to look. Dark or black jeans are perfect for a night party. Top off your look with a button down tee with a pattern that makes you stand out in the crowd.

There you have it fellow nerd guys. Keep your looks simple, sleek and most importantly, peppered with what YOU nerd out about. Be confidant in your style, yourself and what you like. Then maybe, just maybe you will make a con connection you won't soon forget.

Everyday Cosplay: Patty Mayonnaise

Nicktoons were a HUGE part of my childhood! I've done a few other Everyday Cosplays and they are always super fun to reminisce on! Back then watching the shows for fun, I never realized that some of them did have some great fashion sense! 

Besides being super chic, Patty was a girl who knew who she was. It takes guts to cut your hair to a pixie cut and she did it without a second thought. Plus it looks great on her! Her subtle strength seeped in deeper than I ever realized. 

DIY Halloween Costume

Now THIS Everyday Cosplay is half DIY and it is super simple! Take your favorite blue tee, add some pink polka dots and TA-DA! I would roll the jeans a bit to make them more capri length, it's one of my favorite things to do in my own style! I love the pink shoes {I have some pink TOMS} and the silver hoop is a classic!

Next week I have a reader request! If you would like to suggest an Everyday Cosplay leave a comment below! Also SHARE YOUR favorite Nicktoons! Phil & Lil were always my favorite...2nd place Rocko!

Everyday deserves a lil cosplay!
