What’s Your Favorite Padme Look: Part 3?

For this final segment of What’s Your Favorite Look? I’m finishing it off with Padme’s designs in Revenge of the Sith. Now, because I have extended the What’s Your Favorite? topic for nearly two weeks there will not be a Who’s Your Favorite? topic this Sunday but all will return to normal next Sunday.

So, on that note, here are her dazzling looks from Revenge of the Sith. Enjoy!

The Mother-To-Be Outfit

When Padme was first introduced in Revenge of the Sith she wears this fascinating velvet cloak to hide her form to prevent anyone from noticing her pregnancy. She also wears her hair in cinnamon buns as yet another homage to Leia, the daughter she would bear in a few months. Continue reading What’s Your Favorite Padme Look: Part 3?

Throwback Friday: My Awesome Magazine Collection

At the end of the year I will have to share my updated list of awesome magazines that I’ve collected but until then, take a look at these old magazines that are a part of my ever-growing collection. Enjoy!

I love collecting awesome Entertainment Weekly (and other) magazines that feature covers of my favorite upcoming movies. So, on that note, take a look back at these fascinating magazine covers.

My Marvel Movie Collection

Magazine1

These issues are all in alphabetical order and date back to December 2015. Can you believe that?! So many Marvel movies have come out in that time. You’ve got first looks at Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange. There’s Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor and Black Panther. Oh, let me tell you a little bit about my experience when I got the Thor: Ragnarok issue.

I had seen bits and pieces of Thor: Ragnarok concept art (only of Hela) in the movie news but I had no idea of the changes that would be made to the Asgardian God of Thunder. So imagine my surprise when I get my Entertainment Weekly that week and saw Thor with his short hairdo, wielding two swords, and flanked by these two AWESOME looking women. It was unlike anything I’d ever seen with Thor and I practically exploded with excitement. It was a great day.

To revisit these issues brings me so much joy as I think about the excitement I obtained with every collection.

So out of these eight marvelous covers I broke it down to the four I like the best. Here they are.

The Penguin Gets a Much-Needed Update in This New Poster for ‘The Dark Knight Lives’

Before I get to showing you this poster let me tell you a little story. Growing up, I’ve always been a Batman fan. The character dazzled me with his sweet ninja skills, his awesome suit, and his many fantastic gadgets. I had a vague idea of the villains he constantly faced and The Penguin was one of them. I knew who The Penguin was but it wasn’t until I watched Batman Returns that I got a rude introduction to the character.

Danny Devito’s rendition of the character was so disturbing that, well, I couldn’t eat fish for a while after seeing the film. The Penguin was easily one of the worst villains I had ever seen brought to the big screen. Just a real terrible, visually displeasing antagonist that didn’t make my stomach feel very good.

When I started to cast my characters for my new fan fiction series, The Dark Knight Lives, I was excited at the prospect of having The Penguin have a starring role in the story but deep down inside I was kind of frightened to dig into that character’s psyche and bring him to life.

Well, my sister and I decided to make this character our own with a brand new version of the iconic DC Comics villain. Check it out. Continue reading The Penguin Gets a Much-Needed Update in This New Poster for ‘The Dark Knight Lives’

QI’RA: Chapter Thirty-Two

The Calm Before the Storm

Qi’ra knew it was going to be a busy day tomorrow so she was making sure to soak up this beautiful evening.

As she stood on the balcony of her quarters–which were perched on the highest floor of a stunning building made of glass and smoothened blue minerals–dressed in her black nightgown that was being tossed in the wind along with her dark hair, there was a sense of peace that had fallen over her. This hint of tranquility she was receiving as she gazed at the glowing full moon and the lanes of traffic that were constantly moving on by was unlike anything she had ever experienced.

Once again, she found herself thinking of Han. Of his reaction if he could’ve seen this place. Of the smile he would’ve had as they held each other on this balcony, oblivious to the eyes that might be seeing them. Continue reading QI’RA: Chapter Thirty-Two
