Major League Gaming Fall Championships


A few weekends ago I attended the MLG Fall Championships in Dallas! I only went on Saturday afternoon, but had such a blast! There were a TON of people.. mostly guys.. and I even saw a few friends. The coolest part was seeing Halo 4 before it was released. I also enjoyed watching League of Legends since I just learned how to play it. (I'm REALLY bad at it)



I walked in the door and ran into my friend Kyle! I met him at Anime Fest. They looked amazing!




It was funny asking random guys if they'd take my picture for me :D




You could get free Dr Pepper .. pretty cool!

And these lovely ladies gave out free pretzels! Can you tell which one is me?! ;)

I watched the live stream of the Star Craft competition the night before and saw Scarlett play. So when I saw her in person I was pretty excited. Always proud of girl gamers. (She's in the green shirt at the computer)








More friends! Shea and Colton as League of Legends characters. So cool!


And this was by far the coolest thing ever!! I have been wanting a larger, gaming mousepad and struggled finding one in stores. I assumed I'd need to order one eventually but thought maybe I can find one at MLG. I saw a couple of guys holding these and asked them where they got it. He said he won it and some other items in a contest.. So I was kind of bummed and said how I'd been looking for one and he offered it to me! I tried to decline, of course, but he insisted since he won two. I was ecstatic!!

Overall, I would rate my experience a 10/10 .. It was my first gaming convention to attend and even though I went by myself I had so much fun! Hopefully I can go to more of these soon :)

XOXO,
Glitzy Geek Girl!

Pink and Red Wins!

Well somehow I managed to lose a whole post finally!! It was bound to happen sooner or later. This isn't a major important one, but still sucks to lose everything you typed up. So here we go again!

I colored my hair! Looks like the votes went with Pink and Red.. which just so happened to be my favorite ;p .. I probably was going to do this regardless but it was fun seeing what ya'll picked. Blue and all blonde had some votes and WHO voted for orange?! I said no orange! LOL .. But the Leeloo photo almost had me convinced, too ;)

So the process for this was a little lengthy .. I had been using demi-permanent for the black color so it was kinda easy to bleach out.. I use Wella's Blondor bleach with 40 volume.. I don't recommend using 40 unless you know what you're doing as it's pretty strong. Whoever voted for orange kinda wins cause that's what it turned after I bleached it :P

Yikes!

So then I applied "Candy Pink" by RAW to the top and "Fire Red" to the bottom. My hair smelled like bubble gum and cherries for awhile.

Here's the finished look! I'll probably take a few more pics tomorrow.. I was busy at work today. But I got a lot of compliments on it... It almost glows it's so bright!!



Xoxo

VOTE: Which Hair Color?!

Well it's about that time to change up my hairdo. I can tell when the roots are bad and the color fades unevenly. I've had a mixed opinion on the HOT pink - some prefer it pastel - so I thought it'd be fun to ask my readers!

I am pretty open to try anything. My least favorite, however, is orange. So no orange.

Here is a pic of my hair from yesterday. The pink is faded and the black is nearly brown now.

What I would like to do: bleach out the black in my hair and turn it red. Then lighten the top to a cotton candy pink!

Here are some other inspiration photos courtesy of my Pinterest:



I've never done green!

The only reason to ever do orange would be to cosplay Leeloo from The Fifth Element! lol 
(Hmm .. maybe for SciFi Expo??)

So what's your vote?

What I wore .. For Halloween!

So for Halloween this year I went kind of simple. Had to work most of the day then went to a family party that evening. I was going for a "witchy" look but didn't have a hat! So I used the wizard hat I got at Target last year :D .. And my mom surprised me with yummy cookie cake decorated with a black cat. =^.^=
