I have promised myself that I am going to talk about other geeky awesome things on this blog. I am not giving up the writing, I’m just adding subjects. This is an aspiring author’s blog, I want a recording of my journey towards publication. If I can get there, I think it could be helpful for other aspiring writers to see what I did. However, I want to give the world of an idea of me as a person too.
A big part of that is my geeky personality and love of collectibles. I swear the Phoenix Comic Con merchants become more dangerous by the year. ThinkGeek.com and Entertainment Earth are so, so dangerously awesome. If you’re reading my blog, you likely know what I mean.
I’m not lucky enough to own something that came out of an auction (although I did meet the proud owner of one of the Captain America propaganda posters, so jealous), but I have some items I really adore.
One of my favorite makers of cute collectibles is the chibi style Pop Vinyl Funko line. For fandom items, they aren’t as expensive. Unless you want one of those Comic Con Lokis and are prepared to hand over your first born child, (don’t worry geek child, Mommy won’t trade you for Loki, she’s a Captain America girl). They don’t take up as much space as some things and I think they are just all adorable as heck. I have been given a lot as gifts and the next wave of Game of Thrones ones that release are going to cause a little ding in my wallet.
My favorite bigger gifts include the Mal Reynolds replica pistol I have. Perfect for space cowboys who come wearing awesome brown coats and a fondness for cheeky one-liners. I really need to find a shadow box to display it in. As a fan of Mr. Fillion and his support for kids reading, I am also the proud owner of one of his “Read” posters with his mighty fine signature. Being the Avengers fangirl I am, I was thrilled to get a set of the Agent Coulson Captain America trading cards this Christmas. I squeed so hard.
Right now, my coveted collectibles are a steel Captain America shield, more Funko peeps, and the Katniss Everdeen
bow. Anyone out there have a love of awesome collectibles or are you coveting something geeky and cool?
