Sponsor Spotlight: July 2014

My sponsors are a special group - we are all geek girls bonded by our passion for things we love. It makes sense that I agree with so many of their answers this month (a trip to Tokyo Disneyland? Yes, please!). My sponsors help me make my blog more awesome. Thank you to each one of you for supporting my work.

Scrawny Girl

I create kawaii and quirky illustrated stickers, cards, prints, zines, and more. I have a fatal attraction to cuteness that I need to share with the world!

What's your dream vacation? My dream vacation would be to go to Tokyo, Disney with my little family.
What's your favorite quote? My favorite quote is: "But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep" by Robert Frost.
Ice cream or frozen yogurt? I am definitely and ice cream/gelato person.

Costume Playbook

Costume Playbook aims to be THE ultimate source for costume guides across all your favorite fandoms! I have always been passionate about Halloween, and my goal has always been to use practical, budget-friendly, and reusable pieces to turn into a costume. I decided to turn that passion into a blog and this is the result. For your convenience, I've sorted out the guides based on different criteria you may be looking for - whether you're planning to dress up as a character of a movie, TV show, book, etc. or you're going to a costume party as a couple, BFF, big group, or you'd like an ode to the 80s, 90s, etc. I have also created labeled image guides and recommended items to help you along your costume hunting process.

What's your dream vacation? I would LOVE to go back to Japan! I'd go to Harajuku to witness their eclectic fashion and even try dressing up, too! Then I'd visit their more historical places in Kyoto, and spend some time with nature at Hokkaido. Of course, in every step of the way, I would be eating all the delicious food they have to offer (drooling as I write this)
What's your favorite quote? My favorite quote: "If you settle for just anything, you’ll never know what you’re truly worthy of". I don't know who said it, I just saw it on the Internet, but it really stuck with me. It's my constant challenge to really do my best and push myself!
Ice cream or frozen yogurt? Mmmmmm... Actually the sad thing is I always have an upset tummy so I rarely get to eat either :( I do love yogurt though (not the frozen kind, the smooth kind) and at least it's more stomach-friendly.

April Sponsor Spotlight


Geekphoria is how Amanda, a life-long geek, shares her love of video games, cosplay, fantasy, sci-fi, and crafting with the rest of Geekdom. By day she's a mild-mannered political science Ph.D student, and by night she's marathoning Star Trek on Netflix, sewing costumes and crafting props, and reading everything she can get her hands on.

What's your dream vacation? Going to visit Hobbiton in New Zealand!
What's your favorite quote? "The best fantasy is written in the language of dreams. It is alive as dreams are alive, more real than real … for a moment at least … that long magic moment before we wake.

Fantasy is silver and scarlet, indigo and azure, obsidian veined with gold and lapis lazuli. Reality is plywood and plastic, done up in mud brown and olive drab. Fantasy tastes of habaneros and honey, cinnamon and cloves, rare red meat and wines as sweet as summer. Reality is beans and tofu, and ashes at the end. Reality is the strip malls of Burbank, the smokestacks of Cleveland, a parking garage in Newark. Fantasy is the towers of Minas Tirith, the ancient stones of Gormenghast, the halls of Camelot. Fantasy flies on the wings of Icarus, reality on Southwest Airlines. Why do our dreams become so much smaller when they finally come true?

We read fantasy to find the colors again, I think. To taste strong spices and hear the songs the sirens sang. There is something old and true in fantasy that speaks to something deep within us, to the child who dreamt that one day he would hunt the forests of the night, and feast beneath the hollow hills, and find a love to last forever somewhere south of Oz and north of Shangri-La.

They can keep their heaven. When I die, I’d sooner go to Middle Earth." -George R.R. Martin
Ice cream or frozen yogurt? Frozen yogurt! I'm lactose intolerant, so ice cream is too much for me but I can handle frozen yogurt.

What's your dream vacation? I would've said Italy/France but I happily have checked that off my list! So I'd have to say I've always wanted to go to Japan and while I do want to see Tokyo I really wanna see all the historical sites of Kyoto etc...then I'd go to New Zealand and become a Hobbit. :3
What's your favorite quote? I have so many but this one spoke to me recently: “You’ll become known for doing what you do. It’s a simple saying, but it’s true. When you do something, you will become known as the kind of person who does that particular thing. The only way to start being asked to do something you want to do is to start doing that thing on your own. Eventually, if you do it well, and long enough, people will start asking you to do it for them.” - Jonathan Harris
Ice cream or frozen yogurt? Despite the fact I am lactose intolerant... so all Vegan Ice creams/frozen treats all the way! My favorite being the Chocolate Almond Dream Bites, so addictive! Although Vegan Gelato is a very close second.
