DALEK LIFE

DalekLife3

 

The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary episode aired worldwide this past Saturday, November 23, 2013.  It was EPIC!  I watched it with my Bestie, Machie right before we left to catch Catching Fire at the theater.  I was still completely high from the experience, when Monday rolled around and all our Geek buds saw it again in 3D!  It was like being at SDCC again… So many Cosplays and young people there. I am always to thankful to see the young teenagers enjoying the show because it gives me hope that the show will keep on going ❤

Anyway, these are the nails I painted for the showing.  It’s a history of the Daleks.  My favorite versions of the most feared and ruthless killing machines.   Hope you all enjoyed the 50th as much as I did!

Lightsaber Nails! May the 4th Be With You…Always.

I used GIMP, a photo editing program, to make lightsaber nails! Cool Huh?  Am I a Nail Jedi, now? Heck yeah I am 😉 LOL

May the 4th Be With You…Always.

Hologram Daisies!

These were fun to do because I finally did matching toes and fingers.  I used a pale pink base and a gray purple for the daisies.  Then I used Hologram Glitter for the centers.  Hope you all are having a great week!

This isn’t the best picture but I had to take it myself this time!  These colors actually look better in person than on camera.  Hope you all like these 😀

Compared To Whom???

FRIDAY FACES with Jen…

So when I was told as a teenager that I “didn’t have a face for modeling” and was told by dozens of peers that I was “so ugly” that they “wanted to cut my face off”… I think… compared to whom?

These women???? Listen ladies! We’re beautiful. God knows I don’t feel beautiful. I think I am ugly for most of the day. But I put aside that abuse, the wounds from it and my insecurities when my 5yo son tells me “Mommy. You’re beautiful. I want to stay with you forever.”

I won’t allow him to stay with me forever, but I will allow him to love me. And I’ll believe with him, that I am beautiful…even if I am only able to feel it a few times a day. It’s better than never feeling beautiful.

So when you feel down about your looks, just look at these poor girls who are being made a fool of for fashion’s sake and know that God cherishes His beautiful daughter that He fearfully and wonderfully made…YOU! ♥ Love you all!

-disclaimer I understand this kind of fashion to some extent.  Shoot! I love Cosplay.  But these women are really being degraded and forced into an unhealthy lifestyle.  It makes me very sad for those young girls 😦

Doctor Who Time Vortex Nails!

I love Doctor Who, probably more than what is considered healthy.  Step One is admitting you have a problem, right?  So I wanted to do something spectacular.  I realize that not everbody will get this as not all Doctor Who fans have seen all of the Classic Doctor Who shows.  That includes me 😉  I’m working my way through them now!  LOVE  ❤  I love the Intros and wanted to do something spectacular.  After hours of research, preparation, and many corrections, here are my Doctor Who Intro, Time Vortices inspired nails!!

Two Fifty Can Make A Difference!

CarrieBlandComicCon2013

I am just one of the many people who have been inspired by Carrie Bland (aka @Keeba13).  Her kindness and passion for Geek culture helped me get through a very dark time in my life.  I think we can all agree that Carrie has touched us positively in one way or another.  She’s an amazing person and deserves some serious respect for all of her hard work!

Please help me raise funds for Carrie Bland to send her to San Diego Comic Con 2013!  Carrie, redefines the word ‘bland’.  She is a beautiful lover of all things Geek; full of life, fun and compassion.  Just by being herself, she has helped me change my life from a dull and ‘bland’ existence to one that is colorful, confident and creative!

Carrie is one the most amazingly talented GeekMoms.  She is respected as a top Gaming Girl and is the Community Manager for PMS Clan Halo Division.  Respect!  A Whovian, a Zombie Apocalypse lover, Supernatural addict, and did I mention she loves tacos? Carrie’s an Amazing GeekMom who is so dope, that she crafts-up Legend of Zelda Link arm cuffs for her daughter and cosplay’s some hardcore Stormtrooper action!  What lucky kids ❤

I don’t feel that this self-sacrificing woman should have to stay home when she is loved by so many!  If all of her friends, family and Twitter followers were to donate $2.50, we would definitely meet our Goal Amount.  I bet you could find two-fifty in change right now in the couch cushions! Please help us send Carrie Not-at-all-Bland to San Diego Comic Con 2013!  No one deserves it more! 😀

Let’s DO this!!!

Also… Please REBLOG this to help get the word out.  You can also request a digital poster to print out and put up at local Comic Book and Gaming Stores, coffee houses, campuses, etc…  We need to spread the word!  If interested in a digital poster, comment below and I will link it to you!

Have a great week everybody!

❤ Jen
