The Ultimate Gift Guide for Pagans

Hello and welcome to the Ultimate Gift Guide for Pagans and the second day of the Geeking By 12 Days of Christmas! Spinning out from my Ultimate Gift Guides for Geeks are two new guides this year, this one for Pagans, and another one coming soon for Spoonies (aka people with chronic illnesses). I’m a Pagan and have been since I was about 16 so as with the gift guide for geeks this one has sprung from my own experiences explaining my beliefs to others. I took part in a religions seminar when I was in college and remember vividly being questioned by a baffledRead More →

2019 Horror and Supernatural Inktober Prompts

October is the month of spookiness and Halloween so it is fitting to start the prompts off with Horror and Supernatural. The prompts have been divided into several sub-categories and you’ll find an explanation of each sub-category before the Pinterest board. To view the prompts please visit the Pinterest board and follow the link to the original prompt creator. Always remember to link back to them as credit.

Halloween Fashion on the UK High Street!

It’s been a little while since the last Geek on the High Street due to holidays and getting back on track, and this month I’m doing something a little bit different!

I think this quote from Simon Pegg sums it up quite nicely:   “Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection.Read More →

Inktober 2018 Prompts - Horror & Supernatural

Welcome to the second post in a series of posts featuring prompts for Inktober – this week the theme is Horror and Supernatural! If you’re not familiar with Inktober I’ll be going into more detail in just a moment but basically, it is an art prompt that takes place every October using only ink. There is a set prompt list created by the original Inktober founder, however, it has become such a wonderful community project now that there are so many new prompts popping up each year. Every year Inktober is responsible for the creation of so much fantastic art and connecting people with newRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - Halloween movies

  When I first saw this prompt I initially chose the other one (Halloween tv episodes) then switched to this and eventually ended up with too many to choose from! So here are my 5 must see Halloween movies. I’ve interpreted ‘Halloween movies’ as movies to watch on Halloween rather than one’s set/based on Halloween as that list, for me, is tiny. Hocus Pocus Hocus Pocus is funny, it’s witty, and it’s just a bit scary and freaky without making it too much of a scare fest. I love the characters and their relationships, as well as the historic and lore elements surrounding the threeRead More →
