Some of my favorite finds from around the web this week:
First up, more greatness from The Replica Prop Forum on Facebook. RPF member Jer Lee made not one, but two Black Panther costumes for his daughter: as one of the Dora Milaje *and* as Shuri!
I actually haven't seen Black Panther yet, but I'm loving all the rave reviews of the bad-ass lady fighters in the film, and these cosplays are simply epic.
Bonus: when I checked Jer's FB to get his name right I discovered he's been in the habit of being an amazing geek Dad for a while now:
This... this makes my heart full, you guys. Full and happy. Way to go, Jer.
Have I mentioned Cheryl Walsh's photography here before? I can't remember. Either way, you should see this prettiness:
That's a photo! Can you believe it?
Walsh specializes in underwater photography featuring lots of mermaids and fantasy flowy dresses and loveliness. This is the header on her Facebook page:
Go follow her for more magic.
For some laughs, let's kick it over to the comedic genius that is Sailor J on Youtube. This woman defies description, mostly because it's hard to describe someone while you're giggle-snorting. And while her Hufflepuff video arguably isn't her best one, it is GOLD and every Potter head should watch:
To be fair she has videos for all the Houses, I just think she captures the sweet sass of the 'Puffs especially well.
Now here's her best/most popular one - but BE YE WARNED, there is lots of NSFW language, so watch your volume and/or kids nearby:
Over on Instagram I started following Disney Lifestylers, which posts all sorts of new Disney accessories, toys, clothing, etc:
And you've seen the new interactive Chewbacca doll that just debuted at the New York Toy Fair, right?
The cutest freaking thing!! Repost from @nychorrorlover75 - Oh my Chewie! Star Wars team teamed up with FurReal and came up with this most adorable #wookie @hasbro @hasbropulse #starwars #furreal #mightyneed #hasbrotoyfair #nytf2018 #nytf #chewbacca #chewie #toyfair2018 #2018 #bigkid #javitscenter #nyc #newyorkcity #geekchick #imabigkid #pewpewpew #ilovetoys #nevergrowup #disneymerch #starwarsthelastjedi #reylo #starwarstheforceawakens
In TV news, if you have Netflix I recommend checking out the kids' film Mune:
This movie is visually stunning, and I couldn't get enough of the mythology and world building. There's a girl made of wax, a faun who can control dreams, and a lion(?) man made of translucent quartz. It reminds me a little of Rise of the Guardians, except there are no humans. It's pure alien fantasy in the best way.
Plus Mune is actually entertaining, with plenty of action and funny moments to move the beauty shots along. Granted, I watched this when I was sick last week, so my standards may have been a LITTLE low, but the evil sidekick who loves flowers cracked me up.
Then there are adorable spider-tribble-things that look like Furbys, which I totally want to make now:
So yeah, put that one in your queue, and/or go watch it with your kids.
And finally, let's ends with a jump cute. That's like a jump scare, except instead of being scared you're overcome with the intense desire to snuggle a baby kangaroo:
MUST SNUGGLE NOW PLEASE. Those ears! Ack!
And finally finally, let's announce this month's art winners!
The winner of "Date Night" is Corryn Anderson
The winner of "Oswald" is Alyssa Cooper
And my wildcard winner is the Jessica who said she wanted the armless Wam-Pal
Congrats, you three, and please e-mail me your mailing addresses!
