Comics For Christmas!!

A few days before I left LA I met an amazing and brilliant nerd women. Her name is Maytal and she runs a comic publishing company called Emet Comics. All the comics are written and illustrated by women! 

To get the word out on these amazing women and their creations, I've read all six of their comics and wanted to tell you a little bit about each one! Spoiler Alert...they are all BRILLIANT!!

1. The Wendy Project by Melissa Jane Osborne illustrated by Veronica Fish. A modern day interpretation of Peter Pan. A heartbreaking story...with small touches of happiness to carry you through. Haunting art with flashes of brilliant color.

2. Inside The Loop by Cindy Tobisman, illustrated by Lynne Yoshii. Dystopian adventure! Exciting and leaves you wanting more!

3. Helena Rose: An Intergalactic Fairy Tale by E.O. Levendorf and Sonia Liao. Right away I fell in love with the art and color. I love the simplicity! The story is gorgeous with tons of feels which is right up my alley as well! Cannot wait to follow this beautiful space odyssey!

4. Romeo & Juliet and Guns by Emily Dell, illustrated by Mollie Helms. I am already a huge fan of Shakespeare so I knew this comic would be right up my alley and it was. The story is different with gorgeous art and characters. The Shakespearean element is strung through the story but made new and exiting in its own way.

5. Finding Molly An Adventure in Cat-sitting by Justine Prado, illustrated by Jenn St-Onge. Cats?! Yes please! A creative artist living in LA, struggling with what she wants to do with her life and still living with her parents. That hit super close to home! Lovely art, gorgeous color and compelling story. Cannot wait to see where the story and character goes while following her dreams.

6. Zana by Jen Barker, illustrated by Joey Granger. Set in future South Africa sets two village girls on dangerous journey after contacting an angry ancestor ancestor. Zana’s story is surrounded by art that makes you feel like you are living the journey yourself.
Together we can continue to build a community of female creators and foster lasting relationships with each other! Follow them on Twitter: @Emetcomics and purchase the bundle of 6 comics for only $25!!

5 Fandom Friday: My Must See List of Christmas Movies

Are you NEW to 5 Fandom Friday? Welcome and come join along! 5 Fandom Friday was created by myself and Super Space Chick in October of 2014, as a way to get all of our blogger friends keeping on task each week, building a community with our fellow bloggers and connecting with new and old friends once a week! We choose the topics, you do the writing! Let's get inspired together!

This is definitely one of my favorite times of the year {Thanksgiving being the other}!  I LOVE spending time with family, curling up on the couch and sipping something warm with ANY of these wonderful specials on!  
1.  Garfield Christmas - One of the beginnings of my love of orange cats and what we ALMOST named our orange kitty.
2.  A Christmas Story - This has to be on the entire Christmas Eve night until end of showings on Christmas day!  It's a tradition!  Can you believe they made a 2nd one?!  Blasphemy!
3.  The Santa Clause - My childhood is filled with this movie series and they all hold such a special place in my heart.  This one was a fun twist on Santa and it being the first, is of course the best!
4.  A Muppet Family Christmas - I am dying for this to be on DVD but until then, it is still alive via YouTube!  It brings back my childhood.  I love this movie and the Muppets so much!  Great music too!
5.  Home Alone 2 - This movie gave me a LOVE for NYC during the Christmas time.  My first visit, I had to go to the Plaza and FAO Shwartz!  Tim Curry = awesome and one of the rare instances where I like the sequel more than the first!

{Honorable mentions go to:  A Christmas Toy, A Muppet Christmas Carol, Rudolph, The Grinch {animated and not} Arthur Christmas {which I NEVER wanted to see and watched and was GREAT!}, Pluto's Christmas Tree and of course my FAVORITE ballet The Nutcracker!}

I hope you get to catch your favorite Christmas movies on DVR and spend all Christmas watching and relaxing...that is my plan!!  Share your links below and don't forget to tweet me!

Everyday Cosplay: White Christmas

Welcome to another holiday edition of Everyday Cosplay. This week is a movie that I am making myself watch this year. I adore the music, but have never seen the movie White Christmas. Have you? It looks so lovely and I'm super into the music of the 1950s right now.

So with out further adu...I give you a White Christmas inspired Everyday Cosplay.
Everyday White Christmas

Everyday White Christmas by thenerdygirlie featuring silver jewelry

I LOVE this dress! Red is one of my most favorite colors to wear and this time of year makes it special. The cut of dress is flattering on any body type. Pull the look together with some red lipstick and nails. Add some sparkle because you can't go wrong with a little sparkle and cuddle up with a faux fur wrap!

You are ready for your next holiday party, ballet or night on the town. I just love the classic-ness of this type of look! Now in the comments below, share your favorite Christmas song from White Christmas or any Christmas song! I love I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...even though I don't!

Every holiday deserves a little cosplay!
