Ahhhhhhahahahahaha, I’m delightful.

Okay, so I had this whole post written out when a power thing managed to erase it because, apparently, auto save didn’t want to work… I’m still bitter.

So let’s delve right on into a synopsis.

OUaT Season Premiere – A Chilly Opening

With the heaps of season and series premieres that accompany each fall, one show which I’ve been waiting for has been “Once Upon a Time.” I watch this show and treat it as something of a guilty pleasure; I don’t particularly enjoy it, it’s really not all that good, but I watch it weekly all the same, in the hopes that something really interesting will happen. The show’s creators, in an effort to make fans squee/to cash in on Disney’s biggest singular success in recent years, has hopped onto the “Frozen” bandwagon.

...The slash/incest fanfiction is just gonna blow up, isn't it?

Naturally, I tuned in to watch what they would do with, apparently, everyone’s favourite sister duo.

The Fangirl Perspective’s “FROZEN” Drinking Game!

Disclaimer: Don’t drink yourself to death. Really. That is completely within the realm of possibility, and we’d really rather nobody died from an alcohol overdose caused by a drinking game they got off of a FanGirling blog and inspired by the release of a Disney movie on DVD and Blu-Ray. This game has been posted for entertainment purposes only, and we expect our fans to be as smart as we like to think they are. Enjoy!

To celebrate the release of the hit movie “Frozen” on DVD and Blu-Ray, the FanGirls have written up a little drinking game to make your repeat viewings of the movie a little more interesting. Presenting the first ever TFP Drinking Game:

Da Rules:

Take a drink – Every time Elsa Rejects Anna

Do a shot – Whenever Hans seems entirely too perfect

Drink for 5 seconds – Every time Olaf falls apart

Take a drink – Whenever Elsa’s powers go crazy

Play flippy cup (last place takes a shot) – For every scene with a troll in it

Chug a beer – Whenever a character breaks out into song

Take a drink – Whenever Olaf calls Kristoff Sven

Play quarters  – Whenever Anna asks to build a snowman

Have fun, be smart, and let’s all get wasted build a snowman together!

 

TFP Manicure Mondays! – “Eternal Winter”

Howdy, nerds and nerdettes! Welcome to the first installment of Manicure Mondays! If you follow us on Facebook already, and you totally should, you’ve probably already seen some of the styles we’ve done, but today’s is different. Today’s manicure includes a tutorial so you can achieve the same results at home!

Also congrats to Frozen on winning Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song at the Academy Awards last night!

This icy design is inspired by the Disney movie “Frozen” and the Eternal Winter that those of us in the American MidWest are also currently experiencing. This manicure is, frankly, fucking adorable, and you can achieve the same results by following the steps below.

First, paint your base layer. I went with a very pale blue-gray for all but the accent nail. For that one, which is only on one hand for me rather than both because screw trying to do detail work with my left hand, I picked a much deeper shade of blue to contrast with the white I’ll be using later.

And make claw hands, I guess.

After that, I used a semi-opaque, sparkly turqoise and painted about 1/3 up from the cuticle (and please ignore how bad they look, since I am backwards and clean up my cuticles after I finish painting my nails).

It looks gloopy now, but I promise that it gets better.

Use a Q-Tip or your finger to smudge it around and give it a faded effect towards the middle of the nail.

I do think that the tip of your finger will work better, but the trade off is more clean-up time.

Paint about 1/3 of the nail from the tip inwards with an opaque white polish.

Again, gloop-tastic.

Repeat the smudging, towards the centre of the nail. It should look like this.

Very rough right now, but give it a clear coat and you're golden.

Use a sparkly clear coat to give the illusion of frost on all nails except the accent nail, and then clear coat all of them, including the accent nail.

To create the snowflake, use a white nail polish pen on top of your dried top coat in this pattern:

Very simple steps, very pretty results.

Give the nail one more layer of top coat after the white pen polish dries.

Ta-Da!

Ta-Da!

If it’s not shiny enough for you, you can apply more clear sparkles, but be sure to give it a top coat when you’re done. Clean up any fuck-ups with a cotton pad and some acetone, and you’re done!

Pretty darn simple manicure with very cute results, so hopefully you can let the little things like this remind you why you don’t want to set your house on fire just to feel a moment’s warmth!

But really, winter, I'd like to feel my toes again.

Until next week, when we’ll be doing an homage to “Game of Thrones,” the exact opposite of “Frozen!”
