5 Characters I Want to Dress Up as for Halloween

I always have a hard time deciding what to be for Halloween every year. Mainly because there are so many beautiful and fun options! And while I usually a pretty decisive decision maker, at Halloween time I tend to waffle, because I want to be all the things!
This year I’ve managed to make my decision for my Halloween costume. I’m while not ready to reveal which on I’ve chosen. These are the options I chose from and if you have a guess, go ahead and comment below!

#1: Harley Quinn
image
Harley is my favorite character in the DC Universe and my favorite villain in all the comic verses. I actually cosplayed Harley at Christmas with my family last year. But there’s a new Harley coming our way in Suicide Squad next year (though I prefer the classic Batman: the animated series version of Harley) and I love the chance to dress as the Joker’s crazy lady love. So she always makes the short list!

#2: Jerrica Benton aka JEM
image
Yep, I always dreamed of being a rockstar. And being a child of the 80’s, there are few role models as pink, sparkly and fierce as Jerrica Benton aka JEM and her Holograms, Aja, Kimber, Shana and Raya. So I always look forward to cosplaying this music mogul. Plus I’ve done her hair for 30 Days Of Nerdy Hair, so I know I can pull it off. Very strong option.

#3: Topanga Lawrence
image
I’m currently knee deep in the Disney Channel spin off of the beloved 90’s sitcom, Boy Meets World…Girl Meets World. It’s Topanga and Corey’s kids who are now learning about the world (and it’s truly delightful) but original Topanga will always be a favorite. And I’ve never dresses up as her before. Strong contender.

#4: Kimberly aka Pink Ranger
image
Every child of the 90’s should feel me on this one. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers were the be all and end all of crime fighting teenagers in the 90’s. Plus Tommy…aka Green Ranger, then White Ranger…Hubba hubba.

#5: Princess Leia Organa
image
Princess Leia is always and I mean always on my list!! She is the sassiest and bad assiest of Princesses and she has so many great looks to choose from. I dressed up as Leia for Halloween when I was a kid and I’ve done plenty of her hairstyles for 30 Days of Nerdy Hair, but I’ve actually never cosplayed Princess Leia as an adult. So she is absolutely a major contender this year make that every year!

Favorite Funko Figures

Funko

To quote Charlton Heston in The Ten Commandments… “Can a man choose from among the stars of the sky?” Choosing merely 5 Pop! figures seems mean. Someone is gonna be left out. Someone is gonna get their little plastic feelings hurt. But the rules are clear. 5 must be chosen, so here we go. Thank to The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick for making it “so easy” each week! 😉

#1 – Harley Quinn

Harley_Quinn_POP_GLAM_large

If you don’t know how much I love Harley Quinn by now, I wonder if you ever knew me at all! And incidentally this is the only Funko Figure I actually own. I got her for Christmas this year. So she is my 1st and favorite!! And I always preferred classic Harley over Arkham Asylum Harley, though she is awesome too! Pair her with the classic Joker Funko figure and you got yourself a DC party!!

#2 – Yoda

02_Yoda_POP_GLAM_c5f21b31-8200-41af-a8a3-7875ee9e7ac4_large

Another thing you should know if you’ve been keeping track, my deep and abiding love for Star Wars. So next up has to be a Star Wars figure. And this Yoda is just about the cutest thing ever in life! Though you really couldn’t go wrong with any of the Star Wars Funko figures. Each one is special and I want them, need them, have to have them all!!

#3 – Genie

3198_Disney_series_5_Genie_POP_GLAM_large

Genie has long been my very favorite Disney character of all time. Not only because he is just awesome in general, but also because of the fabulous vocal stylings of the late Robin Williams. So many of the Funko figures are mouthless and that would just be wrong for the Genie. His smile holds the happiness of a thousand suns! And if you aren’t smiling just from the sight of this guy… I worry about you, I really do!

#4 – Professor X

4468_X-Men_-_Professor_X_hires_large

Ok I had never seen this one before today, but I love it! The eyebrows are everything. I don’t often have a hard time choosing a favorite X-Man (Gambit every time) but this figure brings out all the love I have for the Professor, leader of the misfit mutants. So… yeah… this one makes the list!

#5 – Marty McFly and the Delorean

Delorian_POP_GLAM_large

Ummm…. do I really need to explain why this one is just amazing and necessary to have on any nerd shelf? If you need it explained to you, then you are clearly in the wrong place. Go away and come back when you have learned your lesson! 😉

Honorable Mention – Jessica Rabbit

3550_Roger_Rabbit_-_Jessica_Rabbit_GLAM_large

Ok I’m cheating and picking a 6th figure. Because look at her! She’s awesome. I love J. Rabs. She’s sassy and way too sexy for a cartoon character and she just loves that Roger with all her heart. Gotta love and respect that. Plus that hair curtain is too fierce not to earn an honorable mention!

What’s your favorite? Do you have any? Do you want any? Do you know what I’m talking about? If not, go to your room and think about what you’ve done! (Love you… mean it)

Obviously I have a week spot for Joker’s criminally insane girlfriend, Harley Quinn. Darth Vader follows at a close second. I love to laugh and I used to watch Batman: The Animated Series back in the 90’s (who are we kidding, I still watch it!) And Harley always cracked me up. So yeah, she gets my vote over the baddest of the bad, Darth Vader himself. It doesn’t have to make sense. 😉 Life is a little more fun when it doesn’t, in fact!!

Incidentally, if you’ve never watched Batman: The Animated Series, then I suggest you do it… now!! And I am personally crying for your lost childhood, cause this series is amazing and also has Mark Hamill doing t
