5 Fandom Friday: 2015 Fandom Resolutions

The new year is upon us, and I have a lot on my to-do list! This year will see a lot more productivity on my part (I hope) on various platforms. I want to accomplish things this year, and get back into my old hobbies. Along with the ladies at Female Geek Bloggers, I decided to hop in with those promises, since they’re a lot easier to keep.

 

blog1I’d really like to kick off my first novel this year, and I already have a basic outline done – so inspiration is important! It’ll be a space opera, and while the genre seems limited, I’m determined to find great books to take me off into the stars again. This is also just a really great reason to read more this year. If anyone has some great recommendations, I’d love to read them!

 

blog2It’s been a hot minute since I’ve watched Arrow. Actually, I’m way behind on virtually every show DC aired this past year, and that’s a crying shame. While Gotham never really captured my fancy, I love Arrow and The Flash. I really want to give Constantine a chance, too. Marathons shall be had before the new seasons air!

 

blog3It’s been a while since I’ve made a new costume, and while I’ve definitely fallen out of the hobby a bit, it’s always lots of fun to wear a costume at conventions. For most of the year, I’m working at cons and don’t really have the time or capacity to cosplay; I’m hoping that this year gives me a little more time to have fun on the side! As far as which dream costumes occur, I have a small list – Leia’s Cloud City outfit and Capcom’s Son Son are two of my more do-able dream costumes.

I’ve been struggling to come up with vlog ideas, but since I got to much positive feedback on my latest vlog, I think focusing on a particular subject is going to help me produce more great content – so, of course, Star Wars was the immediate go-to. I’m very comfortable talking about the fandom and lore, so expect more videos from me soon!

I have a good excuse for not gaming, and it’s because I’ve not had access to a console for months. I’m planning on changing that by grabbing a PS4 soon, and getting more games for my 3DS. I’m super excited about my incoming PS4, not only because of the PS4 games I’m excited to play, but the indie games offered in the PSN Store. I’ve played a lot thanks to Sarah, including Velocity (which I LOVE) and Chariot (which will destroy your relationships, and is great), so I’m really excited!

 

There are plenty of other things that I could list, but I think these promises are definitely the type I can hold up. What are you resolving to accomplish this year?

    Please watch Constantine! I’m desperate for it to get ratings and another season (just read some of my DC on TV posts for GeekGirlPenPals.com to see me plead/champion it)! Give it a few episodes though, things really pick up with episode 3 and just keep getting better. It comes back on the 16th, so you’ve got a little time to catch up before it gets going again.

    And not exactly a space opera but more of a SF romance, but its got great worldbuilding and could provide some amazing inspiration…I loved Ann Aguirre’s Sirantha Jax series (it starts with Grimspace).

    And I’d loved to see your Cloud City Leia if you complete it!

    1. I have definitely meant to watch Constantine and just haven’t had the time – so it’s on my list for this weekend. I keep hearing good things about it and I loved the comics!

      Thanks so much for the rec! I’m looking forward to checking the series out!!

    2. I’m DEFINITELY marathoning Constantine this weekend, I can’t wait! Thanks for the rec, this is the first time people have recommended this particular series to me so I guess I definitely have to read it!

  2. Have you read The Expanse series by James S.A. Corey? I absolutely loved the 1st book (Leviathan Wakes). It had vomit zombies, a Noir-ish detective, and space ships. I didn’t enjoy the later books as much, but that’s mainly because they were too heavy on intergalactic politics for my taste. Personally, I prefer my Scifi to be more akin to Alien than Star Wars, but if Space Opera’s what you’re looking for, it’s a good series to try.

    1. This sounds incredible – thank you so much, Melissa!

    2. Thank you so much, that series sounds awesome – I love detective stories!!

  3. You have some great goals here! I can’t wait to see what cosplay you come up with! And Arrow has been great! And The Flash is adorable! LOL

  4. Great goals! I also love the graphics you made for this! :)

    1. Thank you so much!! I thought they’d be a neat touch.

    These are great goals! And you TOTALLY need to catch up on Arrow. SUCH a good show! Sounds like 2015 will be a great year for you!

    1. Fingers crossed, and I hope it is for you too! Thanks for reading <3<3
