Fandom News and a Costume Update!

So, just an update on a couple of things...

A) Lichtenstein Girl is out. I tried, I attempted, I failed. It was awful. The Ninja actually screamed in horror when he saw me and I could never actually get the dots small enough and lined up enough. Plus the clothing presented a bit of an issue. So I am still going to vlog and it will still be a makeup heavy costume, but it may be a bit sadder...It seemed appropriate for my defeat.

B) Fandom News: Okay, lets see what we can dig up...

First off we got our Star Wars tickets. December 17th showing, we are all pretty excited. The Ninja squealed, this time it was not in horror

The new Sherlock Holiday Special has a title. Sherlock: The Abominable Bride will air on January 1, 2016 in both the UK and the US. Thank goodness that there isn't a lapse period between releases in the UK and the US. Those are the worst can check out the trailer below...

For those of us that love ANT MAN after it's release earlier this year, we have some great news. The sequel, Ant Man and The Wasp, looks like it will have a familiar face at the helm. It is looking like Marvel will welcome back Peyton Reed as the director of the sequel. Personally I think this will provide some amazing continuity to the film and I am excited to see it. We always go check out the Marvel movies as a family, and I have to say, Ant Man seemed to be the most family friendly movie yet. I know there is some strong language in the film, but the story line was so heavily family driven. 

And lastly I wanted to recommend the latest Nerdist Podcast. You guys know I'm a "podcast hoarder" as my eight year old says, but this one is one is back on par with the types of podcasts I love and long for. David Goyer (Writer/Producer Batman Begins, Dark Knight Rises, Blade) talks to a couple of the hosts about his creative process and some of his comic book cannon dilemmas. I was particularly excited to hear the "Superman Kills?" debate about Man of Steel. Check it out if you have a chance, you can find it here

That's all for Monday, I will see you again on Friday for another a #5FandomFriday! Until then, and as always, stay exceptionally chic & exquisitely geek!
