This friday it’s all about the most binge worthy shows. It’s hard to pick only five cause there are so many shows I could watch for hours and hours, season after season. But these have to be my top five.

Game of Thrones

GameofThrones

I think I started watching Game of Thrones when season 2 was about to start. I had never heard about it before but I had friends who told me it was great so I sat down and watched the whole first season and I was hooked. Been watching it since then and I’ve read the books.

The Walking Dead

Started watching The Walking Dead when it premiered. I’m very interested in apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic movies so I was very excited to see how this show would play out and I wasn’t disappointed. Been watching since.

Grimm

Grimm

I don’t remember when I started watching Grimm but I think the first season might have been out or at least some episodes. I admit I was a bit unsure about it at first but it got more and more interesting as I watched and the story progressed. The last season has been amazing.

Breaking Bad

Breaking-Bad

Everyone had great things to say about this show so I had very high expectations when I started watching. It was hard to take a break from the show when I knew the whole show was completed and everything I had to do was just watch it. It was so thrilling and exciting.

Sherlock

Sherlock

It’s been a while since I watched this show now, but I’ve watched everything so far and I can’t wait for the next season to start.

 

Other shows worth to mention:

  • Elementary
  • The Blacklist
  • The Big Bang Theory
  • How I Met Your Mother
  • True Detective
  • Fargo
  • Dexter

The first fandom this month is about our top five fictional moms.

Molly Weasley

MollyWeasley
She had seven children and quickly took Harry Potter under her wing and she’s been like a mother to him. Molly proves she would do anything to protect her children in the Battle for Hogwarts when she kills Bellatrix Lestrange who was trying to kill Molly’s only daughter Ginny.

Daenerys Targaryen

Dany
Mother of dragons, she talks about her dragons as they were her children and as the dragons grow stronger and fiercer she still cares about them even though she has trouble controlling them. The slaves of Yunkai called her Mhysa which means mother when she freed them from slavery. She really cares about her people.

Lily Potter

LilyPotter
Sacrificed herself to save her son’s life.

Catelyn Stark

Catelyn Stark
She loves her children and husband. If you’ve read the books then you know what she’s does to revenge them.

Mary Cooper

MaryCooper
Sheldon Cooper’s mom is the only one who can control him and the only person he will really listen to.

Game of Thrones transmogs

Game of Thrones is one of my favorite TV shows, so I’ve been looking forward to season 5 for a very long time. I couldn’t wait to see what would happen with my favorite characters so I read all the books, A Song of Ice and Fire, in the meantime. The show is great but the books are even better, so you should definitely read them if you love the show and you aren’t afraid of thick books.

I have made some Game of Thrones inspired transmogs. It was hard to find armor pieces that looked like what the characters wear in the show so they will never look exactly alike, but these transmog sets are inspired by the different characters. I wanted to make transmogs that are usable which means that the whole set is made of one armor type, cloth, leather, plate or mail. I’ve also found pieces for all slots that will be visible. You can just hide your cloak and head. Legs and bracers won’t be visible in all sets.

Daenerys Targaryen

Queen, Khaleesi and Mother of Dragons are some of her titles. She usually wears beautiful dresses like this blue dress she wears in Astapor.

DaenerysTransmog1

She wore a Dothraki outfit in parts of season 1.

DaenerysTransmog2

 

Arya Stark

Arya is described as headstrong, independent and dislikes traditional women’s pursuits so she’s often mistaken for a boy and that came in useful because she had to pretend to be an orphan boy for several seasons.

AryaStarkTransmog

She’s finally getting some new and better looking clothes in season 5. I couldn’t find a skirt that looked like the one she’s got, so I went with pants instead.

AryaStarkCatTransmog

 

Cersei Lannister

Queen and Queen Regent for Joffrey and Tommen. She usually wears dresses and once she wore this dress which have the Lannister colors crimson and gold.

We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Norway but I wish we did because who doesn’t love a whole day with amazing food, friends and family!

I would invite these characters to my feast:

  • Sherlock Holmes from Elementary because I would like to see what he tell me about myself without knowing me
  • Bilbo Baggins from the Hobbit because I know he loves a good feast, he could tell me some great stories and I still feel sorry for him when the dwarves ate all his food
  • Carl and Michonne from Walking Dead so we could have chocolate pudding and crazy cheese for dessert
  • Arya Stark from Game of Thrones / A Song of Ice and Fire because I think we would get along pretty good and she could teach me how to use a sword

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

Halloween has never been a big thing here in Norway, at least not when I was little, but it’s getting more and more popular every year. I’m not sure if the kids here celebrate it yet by going trick or treating but I know we never did. Though I have been invited to some Halloween parties where we had to dress up. So I think some people celebrate it but I’ve never seen people decorating their houses or garden except if they’re having a party.

I would love to dress up as some of my favorite characters, the only problem is that I don’t know where to get the costumes. I don’t think I’ll be able to make the costumes myself because I’m not that skilled in crafting stuff and I doubt I have the time and patience to do it. I guess one can find anything on the internet, but I don’t think it’s worth to spend a lot of money on an expensive costume I’ll use once or twice because when can I dress up except for Halloween?

But, if I could choose any five characters to dress up as it would be these:

 

Moonkin

1. Moonkin: I would love to dress up as a moonkin because they look funny and everyone likes a big feathery owl.

Jawas

2. Jawa: The jawas are actually one of my favorite races from Star Wars. They seem so mystical with their hoods, glowing eyes and weird language but I think they’re awesome so I would definitely dress up as a jawa.

Arya Stark

3. Arya Stark: My favorite character from Game of Thrones, both the show and the books. I like her because she’s not a typical girl and she’s smart and brave. I think I would have been like her if I lived in that world.

link-tp

4. Link: I’ve always wanted to dress up as Link because he was my favorite character when I was younger.

Hermione-OOTP-hermione-granger-16048666-1919-2560

5. A witch from Harry Potter: Not necessarily Hermione, but inspired by her and what she wears in the movies.

 

Which characters would you dress up as for Halloween?
