5 Favorite Fandom Accessories

I'm ba-ack! Gotten a little behind this week, and now I'm playing catch-up.This 5 Fandom Friday is one in particular that I couldn't stand to skip, so I'll be chatting about my favorite fandom accessories today and tomorrow you'll get to hear about my favorite funko pop figures (which I often mistakenly call vinyl pop figures, but whatevs). So here we go, my top fandom accessories, go!
#1: Harley Quinn Comic Strip Bangle! This is an item that I debated whether or not to get at FanExpo 2014 for so freaking long that I probably held up traffic in front of that particular booth for far longer than I should have XP In the end I finally picked it up, and I haven't regretted this purchase :) Whenever I need a little more Harley Quinn in my life, I just put on the bracelet. It's a little chunky and isn't easy to wear with my winter jacket, but that's hardly a bother with such a unique piece of jewelry. I included this accessory as part of my recent Harley Quinn Everyday Cosplay that I wore to my first day of class of 2015.
#2: Video Game Earring Collection! It's been a tradition of mine since the very first convention I attended at age 16 that I must buy at least 1 pair of video game-themed earrings. Since then I've continued on with this collection and so far am pretty proud of the results. There are a few missing from this picture, like my Fire Flower earrings and my Portal earrings, and probably a few others I'm forgetting at the moment. The newest pair I've added is the pair that looks like an Xbox copy of Bioshock Infinite, which I've received plenty of compliments on. I also wore my Fire Flower earrings for my university grad photos :P
#3: Bird & Cage Broach/Pin Set from Bioshock Infinite! I received these as a gift on my 21st Birthday from one of my ex-boyfriends. I have used both of these during my time of cosplaying as Elizabeth. I'm tempted to work these into an everyday outfit as well, I'll just need to figure out how to pull it off.
#4: Geeky Retractable ID Badge Clips from Vintage Virtue! Partly for myself and partly to pick up a new and unique prize for one of the 2 giveaways I hosted last summer, I ordered a combination of 5 retractable ID badge clips. I get a lot of use out of these since I need to bring my university ID with me all the time in order to ride the bus to school. 2 of the designs I bought contain a Scott Pilgrim image, one of which I included in the giveaway and the other I kept for myself, which is shown in the 1st picture. The 2nd picture is the Hufflepuff crest, which I used for the months of September and January, since they were my first months back in class and it felt rather fitting. Another design I own bears the Shaun of the Dead logo, which I used for the month of October, and my November design was a portrait of Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn :)
#5: The Great Gatsby Tote Bag! This is my go-to bag, especially on Saturdays when I head out for my weekly violin lesson, since it's the perfect size to hold onto my music books and it's still fairly light, with room left over to tuck in my current novel or my letter writing supplies. I actually got this bag free from work. They were going to be scrapped and my co-worker asked if I wanted one. I'd been eyeing them since they came to the store (around the time the new film was in theaters), so I was over the moon to have this bag for myself.
BONUS: Pizza Slice Friendship Necklace! This is a gift I recently received from my friend Morgan. She also gave one to our 3 other friends. When you put them together, they make an (almost) complete pizza. One more slice would've made it complete, but of course there just had to be only five of us :P Even though I'm not a fan of actual pizza (yes, that wasn't a typo, the shot heard round the world, I know), I adore this necklace, and I've been wearing it since I got it last Saturday :)
