6 on 6 Red

6 on 6 - Red

I am posting my final photos in the 6 on 6 series, red for December. Like my gold photos for November, these have a Christmassy theme. A lego Santa, and Starbucks red cup. I have also added an Electra Tsum Tsum. The Harley Quinn Funko, was a Halloween gift as past of the Geek Girl x Bloggers group from the Funko Queen dePepi.

The final photo in my red themed #SockSunday photo I took on Instagram. Featuring the Red Queen book, a red cup and my 2 luv crew socks I knitted years ago. These are my favourite socks that I made, that I tend not to wear them, which is why I think they don’t have holes in them.

6 on 6 – Gold

I loved taking part in the 6 on 6 photo challenge last year. Unfortunately, In November I didn’t have time to take any “gold” photos. So in took them in December and did not have get around to post them to the blog. But seeing as I enjoyed the project I figured I would post them now to complete the challenge, even if they do include some Christmas photos!

I couldn’t include a tsum tsum in these photos, I incorporated my C-3PO tsum tsum in the July (he still looks yellow not gold to me). I have included Star Wars iconic golden droid. From the cover of my moleskine journal and Santa version (from 2015 Lego Advent calendar).

I mentioned before, how I love charm bracelets, this is my newest version which only has a few charms. I stopped wearing glasses 10 years ago, but sometimes still miss it. This “glasses” ring is a way for me to show my nerdy side.

Nemo

As with all 6 on 6 challenges I have started with a Tsum Tsum (I love photographing these little toys). This month’s includes one of my favourites a Nemo, complete with damaged fin. The other photos I have taken for this challenge I have devoted to everyone’s favourite little orange and white droid! Another tsum tsum, a funko figure, my amazing lego keyring and my fabulous BB-8 scarf!

6 on 6 -Purple

Normally, before starting a 6 on 6 challenge I have a chat with Jason. We think of a few obvious ideas for each colour theme and then set about taking the photos.

For this month, we talked about a few famous purple themes, Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time or Count von Count from Sesame Street. Then I went on a hunt for some purple geeky stuff. I couldn’t find a purple Tsum Tsum or Funko figure. In fact all I could find was a purple cape on my Batgirl keyring.

Purple and Geeky?

When I talked with Jason at my surprise, that I couldn’t find anything purple. Jason was shocked, he stated that our “wedding colour” was purple. It was probably the only time he wore purple!

After that instead of looking for more items to photograph. I ended up spending hours on my laptop looking through wedding photos! So this month’s 6 on 6 was an epic fail! I have one photo and published my blog post a day late.

Dory


For this months 6 on 6 as always I had to include a Tsum Tsum. Originally, I only planned to collect the Star Wars or Marvel versions. However when I saw the “Dory” version Disney released to conjunction with the release of Finding Dory, I had to change my mind.

R2D2

When I posted my 6 on 6 photos for March, I mentioned I acquired a collection of Star Wars tins. This R2D2 version has moved around over the years. First it was in my bedroom for a while, holding odd buttons, then ear-rings and odd ear-ring backs. Now it is on my desk holding paperclips.

Batgirl Funko Pop! & Dorbz

As you may know Batgirl is my favourite character. So I adore buying anything Batgirl themed (yes I own Batgirl knickers and pyjamas), the very first Pop Vinyl figure I brought was Batgirl. It is also my favourite Pop Vinyl. Shortly, after buying her I also brought the Dorbz and Mopeez versions.

Pez Dispenser

Another blue cowl. I love Pez dispensers, but don’t really like the sweets. This year, I have found several stores are selling geeky Pez dispensers. So far I have brought a Darth Vader, Minion and several Marvel comic characters including this Captain America one.

Oyster Card

As I Londoner I always carry around my trusty Oyster Card. (The contact-less payment system used on public transport in London). I know I could use Apple Pay or credit card, but I love my Oyster Card. Maybe one day they will offer Oyster Card Nails.

6 on 6 Blue
Team GB

Finally, my beloved Team GB t-shirt (and scarf), which I had to include as the Rio 2016 Olympics started this weekend. I become obsessed with the Olympics in 2012. We were lucky enough to attend several sporting events and spend a lot of time in our fabulous city enjoying the extra events laid on. (You can read about my adventures during the London 2012 Olympics here.)

Chewie Tsum Tsum
Chewie Tsum Tsum

I planned on taking these photos last month – ready for June’s 6 on 6 challenge, but time got in the way and I didn’t get a chance to take all six photos. However, I figured I would take the extra photos and post them a late. First up I had to include something from my tsum-tsum collection, and chose fluffy Chewbacca.

One of my favourite photography blogs suggests taking photos of Lego mini-figure to improve your photography skills. Mini-figures are great for practising macro-photography, but also portable enough to carry around and add a little dimension to your everyday shots. So I am going to try to include more Lego in my 6 on 6 photos.

Whimzy Yarn
Whimzy Yarn

I have never felt comfortable taking photos of yarn, my photos never seem to show the real colour of the yarn, or the tones and texture. I have experimented this month, using different light sources and backgrounds to get the “correct” colour.

Kit Kat
Kit Kat #mybreak

Originally, I was going to take a photo of a cup of coffee – but I figured there are enough photographs of coffee on my blog, so I included my other guilty pleasure, KitKats! One day I would love to go to Japan and try all the weird and wonderful flavours they have there.

The Reach
The Reach

I planned on going to the park and taking some photos of ducks, however they were all hiding this weekend, so instead I captured this wooden sculpture. “The Reach” was part of a collection of chainsaw sculptures places in London parks before the 2012 Olympics.

Camera Bag
Camera Bag

When I brought my camera I also purchased a black nylon bag to carry my camera. The truth is, it was ugly! When looking for lenses on Amazon, my suggested purchased included this vintage looking bag, which is more my style. It still has the padded pockets, and I actually like carrying this bag around town.

6 on 6 -Green

After being so organised last month with my 6 on 6 photos this month, I am extremely late! I don’t really have a lot of green stuff, but I think I need to buy more Loki merchandise. Yesterday, I had a quick look around my house and found a few green things. My breakfast smoothie, some colouring pencils and a Boba Fett from my growing collection of Tsum Tsum.

As the weather was so nice this weekend in London, I grabbed my camera and some coffee and headed out to take some photos, I took a walk along the river to the green Hammersmith Bridge (although it doesn’t look very green in my photo) and around a local park.

I recently upgraded my camera to a DSLR, the day it arrived I started taking photos of everything around my bed, the first thing I photographed was my Captain Phasma figure – she has since become my model for playing with new techniques or lenses.

When I posted my 6 on 6 photos in January (white), I mentioned I could post a photo of Converse shoes every month – these are my newest pair and the first pair that have ever given me a blister!

I tend to use this glitter nail polish for a faux accent nail or over the holiday period for some festive sparkle to my nails – but I couldn’t resist doing the “painted nails and nail bottle in hand” shot.

One of my non-geeky collections is this accidental collection of State Quarters from America, I have 39 of the 50 collected over several trips to the States. Hawaii is the State I most want to visit, The Connecticut coin is my favourite and New York is the last place I visited across the pond.

6 on 6 - Silver
The obvious thing for me to photo with a silver theme is jewellery.  I fell in love with this necklace when I saw it online as it’s the same as one Black Widow wears in a Winter Solider, unfortunately, it was sold out – but my darling husband phoned around stores in England and managed to track down for as a gift for me.

I have several charm bracelets, to me they help express my personality on my wrist, most of these have been gifts. My newest charm is the BB-8 one, the Nemo is to express my infertility (Nemo was the only good egg) and the pumpkin for my birthday at Halloween.

I am so behind on my blog post series, between being ill last month and the mini vacation, I am still playing catch-up. I was going to forget about February’s 6 on 6 and move on to March’s, but then I realised I don’t actually own a lot of pink things, so I decided to do February’s really late!

Over the years I have collected a few Star Wars tins, (not all of them are black), most of them have had sweets in (I still fill them with tictacs), but I found the larger one in Marks & Spencer last year, it was filled with some pretty horrid biscuits, now it sits on my desk holding my favourite post-it notes and mini notepads.

Last year, I brought too much The Force Awakens merchandise, anything with Rey and a lot of BB8 stuff, I also got a kids play set in the Disney Store to use as part of our Christmas decorations in our bedroom.

My newest obsession is with Tsum Tsum (mainly due to the release of the Star wars plushies last month), my first Tsum Tsum was this Black Widow one, as I was so pleased to find a Black Widow collectible.

Most of my digital life is played out on my iPad, I tend to always buy my technological products in black. I have steadily been using my iPad more and more, to check my mail, read blogs and I hate to admit up but also to play games.

6 on 6 -White

I’m going to take another month off from 5 Fandon Friday, and I thought I would take part in the monthly #6on6 challenge started by the Scruffy Little Nerd Herder. As the name suggests each post should be published on the 6th, but as we have been without wifi for a few days at home, this post is little late.

As a stationary fan, I’ve yet to find that all amazing pen brand that suits my needs, as a result I don’t have a favourite pen, the closet I found is this white ink pen from Uni-Ball, not because I love the pen (honestly it can be a little scratchy) I just adore the way the white ink looks on coloured paper (it was prefect for addressing red envelopes over Christmas).

Obviously, as a Star Wars fan my photos had to include TR-8R. I got this set back on Force Friday last year and was a little annoyed that a random stormtropper was included in the set instead of Poe, now I just love having this little guy in my shelf.

Like everyone else on Instagram, I checked out my 2015BestNine over the holiday period and was amazing is discover that my photo of my Lego Harry Potter – taken as part of the 5FFPhoto challenge from October was my most popular photo it also included this little Lego hedwig.

Have you ever come across a really cool item on Pinterest, only to find it isn’t for sale in your country, that was this little rabbit for me, I thought it would look so cute on my dresser rather than an old candle jar – luckily weeks later a friend saw one in a store locally she messaged me!

6 on 6 - White

It would be easy for me to include a pair of converse in any colour theme – I have a larger collection of them. I even wore a pair on the day of my wedding – another white pair, not these.

6 on 6 - White

When running to the shop this afternoon, I decide to take a little detour in my neighbourhood to photograph these gorgeous London houses to complete my 6on6 collection.
