Geek Chic Perfume and Scents - Black Phoenix Alchemy Laboratory GIVEAWAY

Ever wanted to harness the scents of The Last Unicorn, or HP Lovecraft, or Labyrinth? No? Well you SHOULD and you CAN! Thanks to the crew over at Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, all your geek favorites are now harnessed in perfume form. Their team was gracious enough to send me a sample pack of the RPG Series which included rogue, halfling, dwarven ale, mana, and others. Need the perfect scent to rock at your DnD match? Look no further!

Sample Packs, I've always wanted to smell like a dwarf! P.S. It smells much more delicious than it sounds. HAHA.

Full vials (I feel so fancy using that word) look something like this. I love the custom artwork. These look like legitimate alchemy potions to me. The scents come in a 5ml full size or a sample size. This way you can try a couple without breaking the bank. I feel like perfume is such a personal thing and I like the option of trying a couple before committing to a full size.

You can earn extra entries for following Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Geeky Glamorous social networks. Contest open to United States residents only. Entries accepted until April 16th, 2014.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Pre-Screening Event

Thanks to the team over at Skype, I was invited to a pre-screening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier! Accompanied by my boos Michelle and Yume we headed out to the Arclight Theater in Hollywood for an evening of abs, patriotism, and fun.
All the Marvel clothing I own is Spider-Man themed, so I opted to dress 'murrica themed instead.

The film was amazing, like Iron Man 1 good. It really surprised me. The trailer lead me to believe it was just another "action flik" but it's super well written. The banter between the characters was great and the action sequences literally made me nervous. Michelle said I was acting like an old lady, haha rude. Make time in your schedule to see this film friends, you won't regret it!

My Big Fat Geek Wedding - Decor & Venue

Firstly, thank you so much to everyone who tuned into My Big Fat Geek Wedding. The response J and I have received from all you is amazing, we're so happy that so many of you liked the show and our special day! I know some of you international readers haven't been able to view the episode but not to worry I'm doing a play-by-play of all the aspects of the wedding here on the blog! Of course if we do end up finding a video available online I can assure you I'll be posting it here!

I'll be breaking down the wedding in multiple blog posts so if you don't see something you want specific details on, check back! Or, make sure you leave me a comment in this post so I can know to cover it. Thanks!

It is not easy to find a castle in Los Angeles. We just don't have old architecture. If there are castles they are usually accompanied by a miniature golf course and/or go-karts...hah. So when we stumbled across Lobo Castle, Julian and I were ecstatic. LOOK AT IT.

Monster High - "Frights Camera Action" Premiere Event

What a freaky, fun event! Thanks to my amazing ghoulfriend, Bebe for inviting me to attend the premiere of Monster High's new movie "Frights Camera Action" with her! Also accompanied by Nil and Die our group of gals dressed as characters from the film. I literally scrounged together my costume in one day. Work and other obligations prevented me from not being a giant procrastinator, hooo! For those of you that don't know I am a huge Monster High fan. I have no self control once I enter a Target or Toys-R-Us. Seriously, these are the cutest and most thoughtfully designed dolls I have ever had the pleasure of collecting. Kudos to their team.

I decided to dress as new Monster High ghoul, Viperine Gorgon. I immediately fell in love with her design prior to the film being released. It made her appearance on screen that more exciting because it was such a surprise! Turns out she's from Barcelgroana and has an adorable Spanish accent!

You wouldn't believe how hard it is to find mini plastic snakes in this town when it's not Halloween! I went to six different craft and 99cent stores trying to find some, and only ended up with around 20 and it still wasn't enough! I definitely intend to remake this with proper snake quantities, hahaha. Thanks to Bebe for letting me borrow her MH makeup case. Viperine is a make-up artist so I thought it was befitting to use this as my purse.

The adorable, and fashionable ghoul in the middle is Monster High community icon, Emma aka KittiesMama who has a super popular Monster High makeup YouTube channel. I need her dress in my life!

Swiped some instagram snaps from my fellow ghouls Bebe, Nil, and Die.

And lastly a super cute gif provided by the photobooth at the event, how fun!

Thanks to the amazing team at Monster High/Mattel! I know the ghouls and I can't wait for the next event!
