Because, as always, I like subjecting myself to blog torture, I have created yet another segment for this blog.
But this time, it will take very little work from me, and more work from YOU, so I’m really excited about it! I want to feature you guys, and I thought Fan of the Week was the way to do it but it just wasn’t working out the way I wanted it too.
So I decided to do something different. We all represent our nerd in different ways. Some of us plaster posters on our walls, build the best book collection possible or tattoo it on their skins. Some cosplay as their favorite characters or write on blogs or deck out their car or camp out in the streets or go to conventions around the world. Some start collections or write fan fiction. There are so many ways to express our nerd, and I want to see it all.
Just to give you a little example of this, I’m going to share MY nerd today!
First off, my tattoos :)
I have nine fandom tattoos, ten in all. (My Something Corporate tattoo could also be represented as a fandom tattoo, as music is totally a fandom but…we’ll leave that one out for now). I have my Deathly Hallows, my wrist tattoos “Wit Beyond Measure” and “Man’s Greatest Treasure”. I have my “The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death”, my Rebel Alliance and “Always” tattoos. I have my fearless rune, my fearless Circular Gallifreyan tattoo. I have my Divergent ravens and my Vampire Academy molnija.
Harry Potter, Stars Wars, Mortal Instruments, Doctor Who, Divergent, and Vampire Academy, all represented on my skin because of what they mean to me. I would write more but there is a Nerd Ink post that will be posted TOMORROW, so you can read more about them then!
I don’t own bookshelves. I know. I should. But I just don’t. I don’t have the room. But I’m addicted to buying books and so I there are books EVERYWHERE in my room. Also in large tubs in my backyard. When you come stumbling into my room, you are bound to run into books everywhere. I’m pretty sure my family wants to kill me but I won’t stop. Haha. Its an addiction that I most definitely glad to have.
My dolls/pillows. The Hermione and Ron dolls in the back were made by my darling friends in the Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army. The four dolls (Amy Pond…who is missing her jacket somehow, The 11th Doctor, Magnus Bane and Luna Lovegood) are all made by my mom. I love the Magnus one because its also signed by Cassandra Clare, Godfrey Gao, Jamie Campbell Bower, Lily Collins, Harald Zwart, Kevin Zegers, and Robbie Sheehan.
This one is so hard to see haha but you can see part of my movie and TV collection. Its so small so far, but I’m working on it :) I have some of my favorite movies and I’m getting some TV shows like Doctor Who and Glee and Game of Thrones, so it just has been some slow going. Doing my best to make it bigger.
The next way I show my nerd is to plaster my walls :)
You can see my picture with Cassandra Clare, when I interviewed her. I was able to see her later, so I got the picture signed. I have a poster of the new Harry Potter artwork, signed by the new artist, Kazu Kibuishi. The Magnus Bane picture is signed by Godfrey Gao and my friend Erin from That One Geek Girl got it for me while she was at Comic Con. The penguin “artwork” is something my aunt got me for Christmas because she knows how obsessive I am about penguins.
The Clockwork Princess poster was given to me by Cassie herself so I treasure that one deeply.
This wall is kind of nuts. I switch it out once in awhile, depending on the new posters I get. The Doctor Who and Vampire Academy posters are all brand new so I just put them up. The City of Bones, Catching Fire, and Vampire Academy posters are all signed by cast members :) My Something Corporate shirt is also signed by the band members too so there’s that. The big ol’ calendar on the wall is the calendar I use to keep up with book events and book releases and movie premieres and just my blog in general.
A close up picture from what you saw above. You can also see my Tangled artwork, and my BooBoo Stewart autograph that Katie from Better in Black got for me.
Its hard to see but the top frame is a signed photo of Draco Malfoy signed by Tom Felton. He was a BLAST to meet, and I’m glad I was able to. The smaller picture in the frame is a picture of Luna Lovegood signed by Evanna Lynch that my dear friend Kathleen got for me.
My fandom jewelry. I honestly am not a fan of jewelry (unless its that oh-so-special ring on that oh-so-special finger haha), but I do like this sort of stuff. I’ve only got Doctor Who and Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices themed stuff but I’m sure I’ll get more as time goes on haha.
I was going to show you guys my car, because I have a personalized license plate, and license plate frames, and a TON of fandom stickers all over the car. Unfortunately though, I could not find the picture collage I made of it on my computer and I’m just too lazy to go outside and take new pictures. You guys will see it eventually, I hope haha.
I hope you all enjoyed seeing my nerd!
Now its YOUR turn to show off yours!
