Almost everyone I know at some point has wanted to dress up as one of their favourite characters from something at some point in their lives. This post is geared towards the ladies, but fellas, I got your back. Your post will be up shortly. Anyhow, here are some ideas to get you started on your new wardrobe. (Not that you need help or anything…)
As a Nerd at Heart I will always find these nifty little home accessories wonderful because who wouldn’t want a Darth Vader toaster, or a Nintendo Controller Carpet? Seriously, I would furnish the h – e – double hockey sticks out of my home with these amazing pieces I found online. Now these items range between all kinds of variety, from living and bedroom accessories, to kitchen items, to snazzy things you can put in your bathroom. So without further adieu, here are some awesome things I believe every nerd should have in their home.
This movie was released when I was 2 years old, so I probably came into contact with it and watched it for the first time when I was 6 or 7 years old. The first time I watched it I was kind of terrified, to be honest, because I was so young. But as I got older and watched it again and again, I began to really enjoy it. The creativity that went into the characters, because they were definitely anything but normal. I mean, Tim Burton was the creator. Of course it’s going to be twisted, yet creative, musical and entertaining all at the same time. I present to you, just a few tattoos inspired by Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.
We’re All Mad Here
That classic quote by the Cheshire Cat reminding us that nobody is completely sane. We’re all some form of mad, one way or another. As life should be; if it weren’t for surprises and unfortunate circumstances, our lives would be boring, predictable and meaning-less. But when unforeseen things come up, we have to learn to cope, adapt, or overcome. And that’s what pushes us to work harder than before, challenge ourselves, and step up to the plate.
In respect to the amazing Literary works of Lewis Carroll and the Directorial skills of Walt Disney, Alice came alive for the first time in 1951. A few decades later, she was back on the big screen in 2010, remodelled in the styles of Tim Burton. Millions of Humans fell back in love with the amazing tale of Alice falling down the rabbit hole, yet not many knew of the sequel to Lewis Carroll’s original; Through The Looking Glass. Now that the sequel is upon us to grace it’s presence on the big screen, I feel it appropriate to delight you all with some body art inspired by the one, the only, Alice in Wonderland. And her crazy friends too.
Being a 90’s kid means I grew up watching TV shows like Animaniacs, Dexters Lab and of course, Sailor Moon. What 90’s child that was female didn’t enjoy watching a group of cheerleaders basically save the world with the help of Tuxedo Mask? Anyway, enough of my rambling. Here’s some Sailor Moon inspired tattoos.
When the tale of Harry Potter was first released on film, I became obsessed. Harry and his pals, Hermione, Ron, Hagrid, and the all powerful Voldemort come together to create a breathtaking, heartbreaking, life changing experience for its fans. The characters, although Wizards, Warlocks, Witches and what-have-you, remain so relatable in actuality. Here are a couple Harry Potter inspired tats. I will definitely touch back on this and find some real sweet body art you will enjoy.
For years I have been ignored, pushed aside and made to feel unimportant. For years I’ve been living in the shadows of my peers, wishing to be like them, to be noticed. Hence I’ve dyed my hair, changed my clothing style, changed my personality, almost everything about me just to attempt to make some headway. But nothing has changed. I’m a very outspoken girl, yet noone listens. I have dreams and aspirations, yet they seem like dumb ideas to most. When you’ve been placed on the back burner too many times you start to believe that your dreams and goals don’t matter. You start to believe that noone cares about how you lead your life, how you act around others, because they’re not watching, listening or paying attention to you anyway, so what does it matter?
