QMx_SerenityPlush

QMx started making Firefly merchandise because the owner, Andy Gore, is a bonafide Browncoat. They keep making it because they love the show and because we need our Firefly goodies.

I know I needed this Serenity Plush, so I’m just pleased as punch that they went and made it. I’ve seen her up close and this 18-inch Firefly Serenity Plush is quite shiny, with awesome detail (it even has little plush shuttles!).

You can sign up for the mailing list now to be notified when it’s available to order.

Check out more pictures of her after the break.

felicia hello kitty

I’ll bet you’re wondering about that picture. I’m just going to let Felicia Day’s quote be the explanation:

Now that I learned that Hello Kitty isn’t a cat but a little girl, my dreams can come true and this will be my future family portrait.

That quote is just one of the myriad reactions out there to the (OMG SHOCKING) news that Sanrio’s Hello Kitty isn’t a cat.

This news comes from a correction made by Sanrio to wording used by University of Hawaii anthropologist Christine R. Yano for her upcoming Hello Kitty retrospective at the Japanese American National Museum in October.

“I was corrected — very firmly,” Yano told the L.A. Times. “That’s one correction Sanrio made for my script for the show. Hello Kitty is not a cat. She’s a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. She’s never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature. She does have a pet cat of her own, however, and it’s called Charmmy Kitty.”

Yep, Hello Kitty is not a cat. Charmy Kitty is a cat. Also, according to her back story her real name is Kitty White, she’s British, and her height and weight are measured in apples.

Cue “The More You Know” graphic.

These adorable drawings are the work of DeviantArtist María Pérez Pacheco who has drawn watercolor versions of nerdy characters that would look right at home in a children’s book. She’s covered most of the major fandoms, including Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, and even Frozen, but the best one may be The Walking Dead. It’s got the cast from the television show, but the zombies they’re fighting are straight out of the game Plants vs. Zombies.

Grumpy Cat and Game Of Thrones were both at SXSW this week and we’ve finally learned who was meant to rule Westeros.

Luckily for us, there are pictures of this event and we ended up with some pretty awesome shots of Grumpy Cat meeting the Funko POP! versions of Dany, her dragons, and Ned Stark.

Roller derby is an insanely fun sport to watch. The players have neat outfits, cool names, and they skate and bash each other around – what’s not to love? Add superheroes and it goes to a whole other level. Artist Kevin Bolk has pitted the ladies of Marvel against the ladies of DC Comics in these adorable illustrations. The costumes are already perfect for the sport; he just had to add a helmet, padding, and skates. I’d pay all the money to watch She-Hulk body check her opponent.
