March 2015 Must Haves
I am a giant supporter of Etsy, and though that can sometimes be detrimental to my bank account, I still can't help myself. So instead of my husband lecturing me about my purchases I decided to compile a list of my favorite items from Etsy in the month of March, and in the process hopefully inspire some of you to support these independent artists.
Always Snape and Lily - Harry Potter silhouette Hand cut Paper Craft
Harry Potter is my number 1 fandom, I - to this day - am still waiting for my Hogwarts letter (hey it could happen!). So when I cam across this paper craft silhouette, I fan-girled real hard. My first thought was "Well it's only $45 that's a freaking steal!", and I still stand by that. The designer Will Pigg, is based in Orlando, FL and has some insanely incredible work, he not only does many different paper silhouettes, his sketches are equally astounding. If Harry Potter isn't really your thing Will has you covered from Star Wars, to Mario, Ghibli, and even Disney. Take a look at this talented artist, you wont regret it.
Mature - Game Of Thrones T-Shirt F*ck the King
Nah Nah, Nuh-Na-Nah Nah, Nuh-Na-Nah Nah. Nuh-Na-Nah Nah. Aw, Game of Thrones, who doesn't like GOT, honestly? With drinking, sex, death, lies, and power struggles, there's a little something for everyone I like to think. And then there is Joffrey Baratheon, the child king you love to hate. I told my husband every week that kid needed a good ass kicking, and he might turn out alright. But true to George R.R. Martin style, Joffrey wasn't around long enough for us to see it that would have been accurate. And while I still cringe at the thought of the things that kid did this shirt says it all. Fuck that kid. Trending Shirts on Etsy has some pretty awesome shirts, so if you're not feeling "political" they do have a shirt with Oberyn Martell's face on it, and that is something everyone can enjoy.
The Ultimate Star Wars Fan Patent Wall Art Poster Set
Now I may not have been around when Star Wars first came out but I believe it transcends generations and is something everyone can like. These posters from Quantum Prints are especially stunning to myself, because I majored in Architecture in college, so I am in love with these schematic layouts. And again if Star Wars isn't your thing (which it should be) they have everything from Batman, to The Enterprise, Furby, and even Lego. Check them out!
Attack on titan Advancing Giants- Custom Painted Shoes
Attack on Titan is my shit! (if I were either Key or Peele I would explode into dust right now) If you haven't seen this anime then you are missing out my friends! And if you think that you don't like anime this show will hook you from the beginning. With Eren on the right shoe and Mikasa on the left shoe you're sure to kick some major Titan ass with these hand painted shoes from Tapki Shop. Please go check out the way-too talented Nikita Sheverdin, you wont be sorry!
Howl's Moving Castle Calcifer Necklace
Arguably the best Ghibli movie is Howl's Moving Castle, and though my husband would disagree, you cant go wrong with this adorable necklace from SweetApple Tea. Calcifer is the fire demon who heats and powers Howl's castle, and while a demon may be a scary concept to most, when he is voiced by Billy Crystal, you cant help but love him. Paulina Chinea, the artist behind SweetApple Tea, is quite talented and has many different pieces of jewelry and also some great sketches, definitely worth a peruse.
