#AtoZBlogChallenge: Umbrella Carrying Characters

#AtoZBlogChallenge Topic: Umbrella Carrying Characters

Umbrellas are not an everyday accessory for most people. However, several characters can be seen carrying umbrellas regularly for one reason or another. Below are 10 characters who include an umbrella as a regular accessory:

I thought I would have a bit of fun and show a few pictures of the 10th and 11th Doctors, from the BBC series Doctor Who, wearing something that most of the other incarnations did not wear, a tuxedo. Enjoy!

Happy International/Galactic Women’s Day!

Today is International Women’s Day, but StarWars.com reminded all of us that it is really Galactic Women’s Day with the following pic:

As you can see there are some awesome women in that Galaxy, Far, Far Away including Leia, Ventress and of course Ahsoka!

This fangirl is hoping that the next Star Wars films, TV, etc will feature many more of these women role models!

Again, Happy Galactic Women’s Day and remember the Force will be with you always!!!

Cool Characters Who Wear Glasses

I was just reading a few articles on how wearing glasses can make you look cool. The first article, from an enewsletter I received in my inbox, mentioned there are young men in Japan, who wear glasses, but as a fashion statement, not because they have to. These men are known as ‘Megane Danshi. The other was a blog article entitled You Can Look Good In Glasses about cool men, like Johnny Depp, wearing glasses.

These two articles got me to think about all the different characters who wear glasses that I believe are cool.

Below are some of these cool eyeglass wearing characters, both male and female, from various fandoms:

Past Adventure: Star Wars Celebration VI Cosplay

Today, at the closing ceremonies of Star Wars Celebration Europe II, they announced that the next Celebration will be April 2015 in Anaheim, CA. I will definitely be there to meet up with as many of my fellow Star Wars fans! In celebration of this announcement, I am highlighting some of the Star Wars cosplay from Star Wars Celebration VI!
