ANY day of the year will do for the following First World items my heart so desires. If you are interested in sponsoring a small piece of my geek happiness without anything in return besides a thank you, message me. I’m not kidding.
Ame-Comi Heroine Series: Wonder Woman
I should have bought it when it was first released. My comic shop even had one, and I STILL didn’t buy it. Now, she’s harder to find and way more expensive when you do. I’m not big into figurines (although I do have the Ame-Comi Black Canary), but this gem is an ode to one of my favorite moments in comics when Greg Rucka’s Wondy so magnificently slays Medusa. I feel … like I need it.
CHEW: The Omnivore Edition, Volume 2
There are a ton of hardcovers I would like to get my hands on. Literally, a ton. But Image releases the second CHEW Omnivore Edition this December, and I have been looking forward to it for a few months. I will own ALL SIX Omnivore Editions because I love CHEW. You should love CHEW, too.
Wonder Woman Boots
What girl doesn’t want a pair of Wonder Woman boots? No, seriously. WHAT girl? Because if said girl exists, I am respectfully informing her that she is broken inside.
What makes this pair of boots so special? Well, let’s start with the fact that it is the only pair I’ve seen that isn’t made with patent leather and a platform. Also, they are adorable. I could wear these pretty much anywhere. I just dare someone to try and stop me from rocking them at the office on “Jeans Friday.”
Star Wars Chop Sabers
There is a sushi restaurant near my job. I go there about once a week to get me a caterpillar roll. My friends who like sushi are few and far between, so I usually bring my comics to keep me company at the sushi bar. A few of the guys who work there have noticed me reading comics. Thus, they’ve chatted me up regarding Y: The Last Man and how I need to be reading Locke & Key, like, yesterday. I want these nifty little saber sticks, not because of my Star Wars fandom (which may or may not exist), but because I love sushi, light sabers are awesome, and the guys at the sushi joint will be tickled to death (star).
Hermione’s Beaded Bag
I was super late to the Potter Party, but now that I have arrived … I love the shit out of the series. Full disclosure, I have only read five out of the seven books, but I loved ALL of the movies. Usually it is the other way around for me, preferring book to film. But I could watch them several times and not tire of them. I am not reading the books again. The best part about the movies and the books is Hermione Granger. She is probably one of my favorite characters, ever, particularly because she’s such a smart girl. Hermione is always prepared. I fancy myself a planner of sorts, and when she whipped out her beaded bag that had EVERYTHING in it, I just knew she was a girl after my own heart.
There is an exact prop replica of her beaded bag, and I would love to have it. Aesthetically, it is a bit hippie. BUT if anyone on the streets recognized what it was, they’d instantly qualify to be my best friend.
