Pretty Little Liars – Grave New World

Graveyard party? Classy period costumes? A creepy mansion? You get it all in this PLL Halloween special. You can still watch it on Netflix!

 

American Horror Story: Freakshow – Edward Mordrake

Edward-Mordrake-From-American-Horror-Story-Freak-Show.jpg

There are two parts to this creepy Halloween special of the already frightening American Horror Story: Freakshow (my favorite AHS season so far)! You can still catch it on Netflix.

 

Criminal Minds – In the Blood

Our favorite team is after a serial killer with a fascination for the Salem Witch Trials in this Criminal Minds Halloween special. Watch it on Netflix!

Supernatural – It’s the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester

Supernatural_407_0506.jpg

Another witchy Halloween episode starring our favorite duo (but let’s face it; you can binge watch all the Supernatural you want for Halloween) .

 

Friends – The One with the Halloween Party

Friends_s08e06_0740.jpg

When you need something less spooky and more funny, turn to Friends. Everyone has watched the entire show at least 3 times or they’re lying.

5 Fandom Friday: Characters I’d Love To Dress Up As For Halloween

5 Fandom Friday: Characters I’d Love To Dress Up As For Halloween

If you’re participating in The Nerdy Girlie’s 5 Fandom Friday, you may have noticed a few of us have made some DLC’s to complement the already lengthy blog prompt list courtesy of The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick. You can check out my first DLC for 5 Fandom Friday: the GG Pack (the Geeky Gal Pack)!

I am all about casual costumes this year. I don’t want to spend a lot of money or put in a ton of effort. I found so many “closet cosplay” ideas that are just awesome. I even found some links for you to use to purchase pieces of costumes! May I present to you five casual characters I’d love to dress up as for Halloween. *Some affiliate links have been used. Check out my about me page to learn more about these links.

 

Hipster Velma from Scooby Doo

2bfd90d07e2fe034b10161f2ff6ef92d.jpg

Did it have to be “hipster” Velma and not just regular Velma? Maybe not but this fan art take on Velma looks comfy and edgy. You need some stylish hipster glasses, a magnifying glass necklace, an oversized orange cardigan, red skirt, orange leg warmers, and red sneakers.

 

Mavis from Hotel Transylvania

99898920f0683944e116b3bca8275779.jpg

One of my favorite kids’ movies right now (and one I will be re-watching for Halloween) is Hotel Transylvania! I immediately identified with Mavis and her cute style. This comfy outfit needs a black t-shirt dress, mesh long sleeved shirt, red and black striped leggings, and red sneakers.

 

Casual Usagi/Serena from Sailor Moon

678b6191cf9dea002f08b7261ac8d234.jpg

Usagi’s outfits are super 90’s but still really cute and simple. Plus I’m a huge Sailor Moon fan! To put this costume together, you will need to style your hair in Sailor Moon’s iconic style or invest in a wig, a pink sweater, black skirt, and black sneakers.

 

Haruhi from Ouran High School Host Club

latest.png

When we first meet Haruhi, she’s dressed very casually (and like a boy according to the members of the OHSHC). To complete this costume you need nerdy glasses, a white button up, purple/pink sweater, black skinny jeans, and white sneakers.

 

Casual Anna from Disney’s Frozen (center)

tumblr_nnifrhYK4s1sjodmuo3_1280.png

Anna is pretty cute and anyone can tell this is her from her cute hairstyle. Band together with your friends for a Disney Halloween party and have everyone come as a casual Disney princess from punziella’s drawings! To get Anna’s look, buy her wig here, her gray top here, her floral overalls here, her canvas bag here, and her white sneakers here.

While these planters have a hefty price tag ($198 & $128), you can probably make your own using toy helmets or a 3D printer if you’re looking to save on some cash.

 

Throw Pillows

The secret to making your geek throw pillows “blend” with you current aesthetic, is to either pair them with similar colors already found in your furniture, curtains and decor or find them in neutrals and vintage materials to that they’ll match anywhere. I left my hearts in Gallifrey, Dumbledore quote, and Life is Strange Quote pillows would be fit for any living room or bedroom.clear-495a83e08fc8e5d7569efe6339a1228ee08292fa1f2bee8e0be6532990cb3852.gif

5 Fandom Friday: My 5 Most Binge Worthy Shows

five-fandom-friday1

Stranger Things

Stranger_Things_logo.png

80’s? Dungeons & Dragons? Sci-Fi? Horror? You have my attention. Stranger Things took Netflix by storm. Fans like myself are impatiently waiting for the second season set to premier on October 27, 2017. Get on the bandwagon and binge watch Stranger Things this weekend in preparation for this October.

 

Once Upon a Time

1200x627-Q80_790e8e9e746b1839a0d2689b68b7794a.jpg

If you’re a fan of Disney movies or fairy tales, OUAT will be your new obsession. Some characters are true to themselves, some have been spun a different kind of tale, and some are new! Consider OUAT a new kind of fairy tale with your favorite heroes and characters.

 

iZombie

izombie.jpg

One of my new favorite shows is iZombie. Meet Liv, a zombie living in the real world. She solves crimes by eating the victims brains. Yeah, it sounds weird, and I’m over simplifying it (kind of), but this show will satisfy those who enjoy a good mystery solving, comedic show who have already watched Psyche three times.

 

Grey’s Anatomy

636095894350293088-726168424_greys-anatomy-wallpaper.jpg

So this a great example of me jumping on a band wagon. If you ask anyone what to watch next on Netflix, Grey’s Anatomy WILL come up. I don’t care for medical shows, over dramatized romance, or soap operas. Yet, I’ve watched every episode available on Netflix of Grey’s Anatomy. It’s much, much better than your grandmother’s soap opera. Trust me.

 

Better Call Saul

RgNVfVc.png

If you’re a huge fan of Breaking Bad, you need to introduce yourself to the spin-off Better Call Saul. It’s a bit of a prequel to Breaking Bad following our favorite lawyer. This show is easy to binge watch and leaves you wanting more with it’s quirky cast and familiar faces.

What shows do you love to binge watch? Tell me in the comments!
