Questions:
What was your first fandom? (Or what was the first thing you obsessed over?)

As a young kid, I was super into Disney Barbie Dolls. Also, in 3rd grade I got to watch a marathon of dubbed Sailor Moon episodes hosted by an actress dressed as Sailor Moon. That really made me obsessed with the show!!

Who is your favorite fictional character?
Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter!

What is something you love about your favorite fandom?
I have tons of fandoms! Comics, pokemon, visual kei, Sailor Moon, Star Wars, Broadway Musicals…..the list goes on! One thing they all have in common is that I love meeting people with similar interests. In short – other fellow fans!

What is something you hate about your favorite fandom?
Sometimes….the negative fans. Especially fellow Star Wars fans.

Are you a fan of something that doesn’t seem to be that popular?
Oh, I don’t know…Visual Kei (jrock) music has died down alot in the West. It used to be Monster Hunter but now many people are fans thanks to Monster Hunter World!

What do you watch/read/play the most?
I play Monster Hunter all the time!!! I still play lots of Animal Crossing. I read Spider Gwen comics often!!

What fictional place/house would you love to live in?
Does the Magic Kingdom count?!

Where would you take a fictional dream vacation?
Japan! I would also love to go to Universal in Japan just to enjoy all the Monster Hunter stuff!

What character has a wardrobe you’d love to have?
Maybe Hedwig from Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

What Hogwarts house does you pet belong in?
LOL, Tomo is totally loyal. Probably Hufflepuff.

My wedding was an amazing day BUT the birth of our daughter has topped that!

Usagi Bash and giveaway!

We did it! We had our first meet up – a small group of magical boys and girls came and it was awesome! We hosted it at my friend’s restaurant – it is a quick service restaurant. Think Chiplote but with bánh mì or vermicelli bowls!

We had bingo, coloring pages, fun photo props (scout wands), a little station to make your own cork jewelry using sailor scout rubber stamps that my husband craved out by hand!!! He helped me so much prepping for this event. He helped me screen print all the goody bags and those amazing rubber stamps! So a huge thank you to him!!!!

We also gave away some goody bags, cookies and other prizes, like stickers and buttons! Everyone went home with something.

Now for a giveaway!! We are giving away one of these goody bags we have! Contest ends on 8/8/2018!!! Hope you guys enter! For more info/pics – check out our craft blog: Mind-Speaks!

Usagi Birthday Bash

My sisters and I started Mind-Speaks.com back in 2010, we had no idea what we wanted to do. We just knew we liked crafts; we liked sharing crafts with each other and hoped the blog would be a nice way to communicate while we were living in different cities.?? Here we are in 2018, we all live in Houston and have only done a few events together. We wanted to meet new people, make new friends and share the love of fandoms and crafts with local people. What better way than to host a meet up, give away some prizes and make new friends? Better yet, throw a birthday bash for one of our first fandoms growing up: Usagi aka Sailor Moon!

Sailor Moon means a lot to my sisters and I. When we were young, this cartoon with 5 amazingly strong scouts with different personalities was so eye opening. Approximately 20 years later we are still watching the show, still collecting memorabilia and still wishing we could transform into senshi! I’m sure every magical kid from the 90’s would practice their hand movements screaming “Make-up!”

About the birthday bash: it will be hosted at Viet Nom Noms in Bellaire/Houston, Texas this Saturday at 4pm. This restaurant serves quick service bahn mi, vermicelli and rice bowls. They also have vegan options! They just started to serve boba milk teas as well!!

What will we do there? When you arrive, we have a sign in sheet. Sign up to our newsletter and you’ll be automatically entered into some raffles. We will also have some locket cookies, cork keychain craft set up, bingo and coloring sheets for everyone!

10 guests will have a chance to grab a goodie bag. Inside the bag we have:

-Mind-Speaks Button
-2 Sailor Moon Post Cards
-2 Sailor Moon Buttons
-Sailor Scout charm
-2 Sticker Sheets
-Sailor Scout Bow Clip
-Sailor Scout Bow necklace
-Scout temporary tattoo

Didn’t get a bag? No worries, we will be raffling an extra bag after the event. So keep in touch via Instagram and Facebook for a chance to win a bag filled with goodies!
This meet up is to connect with other fans of cute things.

You can also follow the event along with us via our instagram!

Whhoooooot so nervous!
