Weekend of Hell – Horror Convention

Free Crochet Pattern: Ravenclaw Scarf

This summer we spent our holidays in London and of course visited The Warner Bros. Studio Tour – The Making of Harry Potter. My boyfriend and I are both Ravenclaws, as the Pottermore site tells us, and I was very keen on buying some cool Ravenclaw merch. But I must say the choice of Ravenclaw…

Geek on Tour: London Film and Comic Con 2017

First of all I have to start this blog post with a confession. I am a 34 year old nerd and I have never been to a convention. I know, I know… shocking news! In my defence I have to say, I live in Germany and we actually don’t have any good conventions. There is…

Make Your Own Funko POP! MiniMe :)

  Lately you can create a Funko POP! version of yourself. But there’s a catch… You can only do this virtually. But thank God Funko sells DIY female and male POP!s you can customise as you like. My significant other owns a massive collection of Star Wars Funko POP!s, so I thought it’ll be great…

Save The Galaxy With KeepCups

As a major nerd I constantly get in conflict with my approach to treat mother earth with respect and shouting: “SHUT UP AND TAKE MY F****** MONEY!!!”. There is a whole lot of very cool merchandise out there waiting to satisfy my geeky heart but unfortunately in most cases I suspect a rather questionable production process…

Crochet Your Own Sad AT-AT

Lately my significant other had stumbled over a crochet pattern for a really cute baby AT-AT from Star Wars. Although it was low priced I thought I could figure out how to crochet my own AT-AT and make some adjustments to my liking. Finally I’m ready to share the result and a free crochet pattern…

The Best Of John Williams – Concert Review

Yesterday I realised John Williams has provided the soundtrack for my life. We were lucky to get tickets for the Best Of John Williams Tour in Germany and saw the show in Oberhausen. Although the 84 year old John Williams was not present to conduct the superb Bolchoi orchestra himself, it was an epic experience….

IKEA Hack: Comic Themed Shelf With Wheels

  Don’t we all have at least one IKEA Expedit shelf? We do, too. But we wanted something different; something cool, something not everyone has. I actually should not share this tutorial with you then. But as I am a nice and giving person (hehehe) here you are 🙂 The shelf is actually pretty easy…

Stranger Things Inspired Christmas Tree

I am very sorry for not posting anything in the last weeks. Unfortunately we had a very sad loss in the family and life got very turbulent. Just in time for Christmas I am back now with a new post to wish you all a very merry Christmas and to present to you our amazing Stranger…

Painting with Photoshop

Some while ago something began to bother me: painting with Photoshop. I always wanted to do that. But I always failed. Maybe because I am a very impatient person. But then came a day I was super bored and was determined to do it. So I began watching some YouTube tutorials and figured out that…

We’ve built a T.A.R.D.I.S.

Ever since I watched the first episode of the new Doctor Who series I wanted to have my own TARDIS in the backyard. I did a bit of research on that and believe it or not there are various TARDIS construction communities and websites out there. Apparently I’m not even the first german woman who…
