Choosing a Cocktail Dress

Tomorrow I am heading off for the Lifestyle Bloggers National Conference in LA. The conference is kicking off with a cocktail party. And that means cocktail dresses.

I, like many women, don’t feel super confident in cocktails but I have a couple of great choices from Kiyonna! But I can’t make a decision. So that is where I turn to you all for some help!

Which dress should I wear?

This red fitted, lace covered dress from Kiyonna can’t be ignored. It is kind of tight and that color is to die for. The tightness can make me feel a touch self conscious but is definitely shows off some assets.

This black cocktail dress (also from Kiyonna) is a classic. It is black and gathers to one side. It is very flattering but it is another black dress. (Full disclosure: I am not wearing any make up in this picture and I hadn’t even brushed my hair after my shower;)

Show which dress should I wear? This is the first time I am meeting many of these people so I want to make a nice impression.

Benedict Cumberbatch, Sophie Hunter, and a Valentine’s Day Wedding

Apparently when Benedict Cumberbatch said that he would be marrying pregnant Sophie Hunter quickly he meant it. Cumberbatch and Hunter are going to be getting married on Valentine’s Day on the Isle of Wight. There doesn’t seem to be much more known than that.

How will the fandom react? I personally wish them happiness!

Spiderman is Taking His Place in the Marvel Universe

When Marvel started making movies after the Disney buyout we all began wondering if the Marvel movie universe would ever be united. The first step in unification has been announced!

Sony and Marvel have announced that Spiderman will be appearing in a Marvel movie before the next installment of the Sony Spiderman series. Then Kevin Feige will co-produce the new Spiderman movie and will help craft the new creative direction for Spiderman. But the Spiderman movies will remain in financial and final creative control of Sony.

This is really interesting. And I wonder what this means for the future unification of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (SMU)? Is Sony going to be the only studio to play ball? I think that would be a mistake for the other studios but we shall see!

David Tennant Makes Marvel Even Better

Marvel made a really cool announcement… One that will make Marvel Whovians extra happy..

That’s right, David Tennant! David Tennant will be joining the Jessica Jones project that will be on Netflix after Daredevil! He will be playing Kilgrave.

I am super stoked. And we know that is will be coming later in 2015 or in 2016, so not as long as many of the other promised Marvel offerings.

Are you excited about the new casting announcement? Who would you like to see them casting next?

Avengers 2: Age of Ultron Trailer

The 2nd Age of Ultron trailer has hit the interwebs! I am really interested to see how The Vision and the Scarlet Witch’s story lines will compare to the comic books.

I am also curious who the scruffy man is. He reminds me of Wolverine (not Hugh Jackman but the character;) but we know that can’t be. And he doesn’t look like Paul Bettany to me so he can’t be The Vision. Hmm… I haven’t researched at all yet so I may report back;).

So what do you think? Are you excited or already disappointed because of the changes to the stories we already know? I am excited and looking for to this premiere and the Daredevil show that will premiere in April. Big spring for Marvel!

I do believe that Marvel will soon run the world;). So can we get Iron Man to pop over to France to deal with things;)?

Benedict Cumberbatch is Pregnant

Ok, really Sophie Hunter is. But either way it means that Sophie Hunter and Benedict Cumberbatch are expecting the first child. It has been officially announce by a representative of Cumberbatch so this isn’t speculation. They also are now talking about getting married sooner, as in the next few months.

So how is fandom going to respond. Freak out because this means he will be even more connected to Sophie Hunter? Or more in love with him because he will be a daddy? For this fan I am happy for them and wish them all the happiness in the world!

Official Word on Cumberbatch and Doctor Strange

DoctorStrange

It feels like we have been talking about Doctor Strange forever! But finally we have real and official news!

The illustrious and much drooled over Benedict Cumberbatch is going to be playing Doctor Stephen Strange. Yes, it is true. We finally have a title actor for the movie that won’t start filming until like summer of 2015 and won’t come out until November of 2016. Just kidding, sort of.

I have been following the “who will play Strange” path all along. I must say, I thought Joaquin Phoenix would have been great too. Not as good as Cumberbatch but good. But it does feel a little silly how on the edge of our seat we have all been about it.

That said, it is going to be fantastic! In 2 years;).

Sontaran Christmas Carols

Strax
That Sontarans want to wish you a Merry Christmas. Sort of. In their way;).

It is really Christmas season! And what is better than Christmas carols at Christmas. Of course with a geeky twist;).
