Unboxing Marvel Collector Corps Captain America Civil War Box at 7.30 am in the morning wasn’t exactly my plan for this Saturday. But there was the postman, early bird, ringing on my home’s bell and making me jump off bed. Yesterday I was off with high fever, so I was mainly snoring the day with meds, sweating and with a miserable face. When I heard the the bell ring and I saw the hour I wanted to kick whoever-it-was butt. Seriously. Till I saw the box! I must admit that I was wating this box with some concerns. As you remember, in my previous location, getting the box turned out to be a nightmare. After changing location it took me a while to get back into Marvel Collector Corps again. Happily, Royal Mail is the one in charge of bringing the boxes home! Yay! Coz the next one in June has one of my favorite topics ever: Women of Power! [So, even if I have to go to fetch the box myself through Herculean works, I will have that one!] So, it was Civil War that made me subscribe again.
So, we arrive at the big moment: SPOILERS! If you click on reading more you’re going to find all the contents of the box (gorgeous items, btw). If you haven’t been spoiled yet through any other blogs, and if you don’t mind to be spoiled, or if you haven’t got this box but want to know what’s inside: keep on reading!
Comics THORsday comes back with the Vision! (And with a delay) In the Vision #4, we can see what prejudice and fear are starting to do to the Visions and the people around them. Prejudice and fear are what the community has towards the Visions. However, Dad, the Vision, is still hoping that they can fit in. Ignorant of what his wife did, he tries to educate his children as well as he can. He is very American, and as you can see, plays with his kids like any other Dad would. His kids are just like any other kids. The difference is just their looks and their ways of expressing themselves, pretty alien for humans. So, will Vision’s wish of achieving normalcy come into fruition?
Welcome to another chapter of the Loki Year 2016! In this late episode, we’ll see that Loki lips are sealed! We’re reading the events of Book 1, lessons 9 & 10 from the Gospel of Loki. Loki starts having some fun with the Dwarves that make presents for the Asgardians (Odin and company). However, he happens to make a bet, and in doing so, he might discover something that’s going to be painful. The Dwarves are well known as great crafters, so asking from them some extra gifts (including a golden wig for Thor’s wife) is going to proof tricky for our beloved trickster. To belittle such Dwarves without any backup can be a mistake.
Today our lessons on Geek Anthropology topic is all about what happens when Superhero fashion makes you feel super. It’s not the same walking around with a plain tee than rocking around a Spider-Gwen one. So, what happens when a fan cosplays or wears an outfit that resembles that of their loved Superhero? As you know, I’ve recently had a nervous breakdown. To have more energy and feel better, I’ve been rocking around everyday cosplay fashion items that are into my wardrobe: Captain Marvel’s sweater, Captain America Sweater, Spider-Gwen cardigan and tee, and tons of cool tees. Every time I feel down I tend to dress up into the items that resemble the most the uniforms that my favorite Superheroes wear. But why? What does the Superhero costume have that makes me feel stronger than I am? What does the Superhero costume give me that makes me keep on going despite the doctor assuring me that I should be hibernating? Does Superhero fashion give us Superpowers?
Welcome to another chapter of the Loki Year 2016! Catching up with the series, we discover that knowledge is power! Loki knows that gathering great amounts of knowledge means a great power for him. But, is there anything else? Today we are reading Geek Anthropology of Loki’s Army to discover to what extent knowledge must be power. As you know, Loki is a trickster “God” in the Marvel Universe (cinematic and comics). He lies, disguises himself as he wishes, transforms in whatever he wants and has extense knowledge about Midgard. However, here we’re not going to explore Loki per se, but what Marvel did to portray him and his environment for us to get all-so-Loki about him. Said in other words: how Loki is Marvel? Let me tell you: Marvel is very Loki!
Welcome to another episode of the Loki Year 2016! A late one, since I’m trying to catch up with my Loki schedule. Today we’re going to read the Creation of the World as portrayed in Gods of Asgard : A Graphic Novel Interpretation of the Norse Myths. Gods of Asgard is a graphic novel in black and white illustrations that explain Norse Mythology. In the Creation of the World we’re exposed to what Norsemen thought to be the creation of it, and we’re also introduced to the different gods that we’ll meeting in the pages of this short but compelling graphic novel. Among these Norse gods, we find our beloved Loki. But is he similar to his Marvel’s portrayal?
My Birthday was a blast! Thank you, everyone! After my nervous breakdown, being spoiled during my Birthday has been the best. Seriously. Not because of the presents, but because people took their time to send me their wishes, and do crazy stuff for me! My Japanese friends took their time to send me lots of Japanese super cute chocolates and Sherlock mangas! Two of the volumes are bilingual (English and Japanese), so they are perfect for learning. One volume is just in Japanese. I adore them all! They’re super fun because Cumberbatch just looks so Cumberbatch in the manga. They did an excellent job in illustrating Johnlock and making the volumes just look like the episodes! Amazing!

Yay! Another Loot Crate Level Up Accessory Box unboxing! This time, the topic was VERSUS (and it arrived very late by the way). And again, I host a small giveaway with some of the items inside. So, this month I got Batman vs. Superman friendship pendants, and awesome hair bands. And of course, the magazine from Loot Crate so you can see what was included in the rest of Level Up options. As you know, I’m not really a fan of Batman and Superman, but I am of Wonderwoman. So, I’m going to keep that Wonder Woman hair band that I will use it as a bracelet. [You’re reading the blog of someone who uses hair bands as bracelets. Theoretically, I have them there in case I want to use them on my hair, which, by the way, it’s pretty short. You get the picture!]
What I liked of this box was the friendship pendants and Wonder Woman small token. I love friendship pendants because they make great presents. You can share them with your besties and have a great time remembering things that you did, or have an excuse to go to the movies.
Welcome to another episode of the Loki Year 2016! We’re going to discover all the ins and outs of Freyja’s Necklace story from the lens of Loki : Nine Naughty Tales of the Trickster. I know this comes pretty late. I’m still recovering from the massive nervous breakdown I had, so I’m trying to post what I had on schedule, and that loomed and got dusty meanwhile. However, here we are with Freyja’s Necklace. This is a funny and yet interesting mischievous story where Freyja will do whatever she can to get a shinny necklace that the Drwarves have created. And who is moving all the strings in the shadows for Freyja know all about that necklace? Exactly! Loki, our favorite Norse God.
So, I had a nervous breakdown due to… overwork! After several months of non-stop, my body decided to stop. On Saturday. It might seem ironic, but happening on a weekend is good because I can snore it and come back to work on Monday as if “almost” nothing has happened. The reality is that I am still super sleepy, but I’m now working in a relaxed way. So, what lead me to this? Anxiety and sheer amounts of stress. I work online, and it has its perks: you choose your working schedule. However, if you are like me, the downfalls of working in your way are that you decide your own working schedule. It means that you might work longer hours than you should, and you do it in a happy way not realizing that you need to stop at some point. The whole thing gets worse when you do what you love: it’s hard to get tired of doing what you like to do!
Thus, I snored my Saturday, zombied around during Sunday, and was forced to have a regular schedule from Monday. And this means that my evil plans for writing on the blog have been postponed. Don’t worry! I’m writing again, with a delay, but I’m on it again: in a relaxing way.
