So sometimes we want to buy stuff because of dumb reasons....sentimental reasons. ;) Fandom reasons.

 

What are your fav fandom collections? Which fandoms do you wish would finally get collections? And which fandoms do you think are very collection-able?

 

 

I'm personally not a SuperWhoNatural fan and I'm not really into Harry Potter (blasphemy, I know) so I've kind of gotten shunted in this respect

 

@@meaganola has started compiling some of the companies that have done fandom collections:

https://buriedinboxes.wordpress.com/2014/09/22/indies-do-fandom-directoryroundup/ (psst -- I left you a comment with links to a bunch of other collections, but it probably got stuck in spam!)

 

Fandoms I really want: I mean, Pokemon forever. So easy to do too. Teen Wolf, because I'm dumb. James Bond in general because it's classy but also kitschy

Fandoms I think would make really good collections: Sleepy Hollow (though I don't watch the series, but I think thematically it's easy), anything by Clamp would be easy -- CardCaptor Sakura particularly would be great. But sentimentality, I'd want X ;)

oh man, as soon as you posted, I thought of that. Sailor Moon was one of my first fandoms, but I'm weirdly unsentimental about it... except for Hotaru.  :wub:  I want Hotaru themed everything.

 

I'm really surprised no one has gone and properly done one. But there is technically official SM makeup that was releasd (LE so of course it sold out fast like crazy: http://www.sailormooncollectibles.com/specialty/cosmetics/) But I always feel like it's nice to have a fandom touch.

 

 

Speaking of which, Final Fantasy series collections. And Kingdom Hearts. Disney tends to shut down that unofficial stuff quickly though which irritates me.

SHUT UP SAILOR SATURN IS MY FAVE TOO. I think that's one reason I just didn't have a lot of motivation to keep watching the reboot (i stopped after like three episode lolol) because I know there isn't any chance she'll make it in given how short the series is.

 

And oh my gosh that LE set is so great. I'd love to see some nail stickers by Espionage Cosmetics (they have a generic manga themed one coming out soon I think so I'm gonna be all over that soon). I think there's huge potential to do some neat stuff with Sailor Moon.

I'd also love to see anything video game related (especially nintendo because that's where my allegiance lies, but I also love Final Fantasy to death).

I wrote on IMAM a while back that I would love a Cardcaptor Sakura collection and was so delighted when a couple other people said they would love that too!

I'd love to see Final Fantasy collections (XII, especially, but X/X-2 could have such pretty, dreamy colors). American Horror Story has such a distinct palette each season that someone could do really nice collections with that. Game of Thrones...as long as there's nothing purple, lol!

@ Shiro has a Pokemon Collection (The Super Effective Collection, full-sizes have Pokeball label art!): http://shirocosmetics.com/products/eyes/the-super-effective-collection/ and two of the Kate's Colors by Dawn Eyes Cosmetics are named after Pokemon (Lugia and Shadow Lugia): http://www.dawneyescosmetics.com/kates_colors.html (it's really difficult to order from the Dawn Eyes website, though - so a lot of people make orders by emailing her directly).

 

Baroque Cosmetics has a Kingdom Hearts Collection (called Friends In My Heart): http://baroquecosmetics.storenvy.com/

 

@@formul8edphrase Siren Song Cosmetics has a Final Fantasy X (I think?) collection (called Distant Worlds): http://www.sirensongcosmetics.com/distant-worlds and some of her blushes have Final Fantasy-ish names. Shiro has a Game of Thrones collection (full-sizes have awesome label art): http://shirocosmetics.com/products/eyes/the-seven-kingdoms-collection/

 

Geek Chic Cosmetics had a previous Color of the Month eyeshadow called Pretty Guardian (I definitely bought it because of the theme and the label art...) and a Color of the Month lip product called The Last Cetra (based on Aerith/Aeris from Final Fantasy VII). Rainbow Honey had a limited edition polish called Crystal that was inspired by Sailor Moon. Lucky 13 Lacquer has a nail polish called Lady of the Moon: http://lucky13lacquer.com/product/lady-of-the-moon (and a bunch of other fandom-based polishes).

 

But I'm also really surprised that there aren't more Sailor Moon collections out!

 

I would also love to see collections based on CLAMP! I think innocent+twisted alchemy might have done CLAMP themes for her subscription before; I was randomly browsing her facebook page and noticed that she had done a Magic Knights Rayearth collection several years ago and... became very sad that it doesn't exist anymore -_-

Also now that I've gotten some sleep, I recall that Rainbow Honey had (I think limited edition) a polish called Bubblebeam. Not sure if there were any other pokemon related ones though, definitely don't think she's ever done a complete collection.

Hmmmm....

 

Sailor Moon collection you say? Technically it is space themed...

 

/dropping not so subtle hints

 

In planning to launch a Star Wars collection in the spring, hoping to aim for a launch date of May 4th. I might be able to work in another collection before then.

I would really like more history themed collections, like Espionage's (I think) French Revolution collection! It's perfect. 'Historical Blunders' would be a cool collection- 'Trojan Horse', 'Ross Rifle', etc.

 

Or a Hell's Kitchen or The Taste collection... ahhh. I'm weird and I can't get into many TV shows. The ones I do wouldn't be collectionable anyway (Cracked, Rookie Blue, Breakout Kings, Misfits).

Aromaleigh has a history collection of forgotten women! It's called IGNIS ANTIQUITA. I think you'd like the other collections as well.

I'm not super into the usual fandoms (ie. Harry Potter, Dr. Who, Anime-anything). I would love a collection based around 1950s Sci-Fi/Creature Features, though. Come on, The Crawling Eye, The Thing from Another World, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Them!.... it would be awesome, but I feel like I'm in a minority for my love of these movies.

Yes, but everyone and their mothers have done a a Doctor Who and BBC!Sherlock collection already so you'll understand why I want ALL the pokemon collections >_>

 

Plus, I feel like pokemon -- and many video games in general -- are great for specific thematic collections. I mean pokemon have element types associated with colors. Eevee is a pokemon with 8 evolutions which are also color coded, etc. 

 

And stuff like Sailor Moon is also color coded and galactic. I actually really liked ChG's first attempt at a THG collection with the districts. There always feels like there's something proper about having structure, and I think with fandom, a lot of times the structure in collections is really obvious.

Espionage did a GoT collection: http://espionagecosmetics.com/collection_if.html And no purple (though give me ALL the purple!)

 

I think a horror geek themed general collection would be really cool... like taking a classic horror movie as inspiration for a specific color in the collection. Would be great for halloween

I would be all over a classic horror theme - this sounds perfect for Notoriously Morbid if they haven't already done something like this.

That's actually the theme of this month's Vanishing Cabinet by NM.

 

@ you can also check out Shiro for Moon Prism Power. Victorian Disco Cosmetics also had a Sailor Moon collection but her shop is closed but you can still find the shadows floating around in swaps. And the current word going around is that she is going to partner up with someone like Detrivore with Shiro, so we'll see. :)

@Kyuu  Aargh!  The spam filter!  I'll have to check that when I have time to sort through all of that crap!  (Seriously, *why* do spammers love my Honest Co. post so much?  It's always *that* post.  No clue why.)

http://www.geekchiccosmetics.com/winordie.html -- One purple for Dani, but lots of earthy tones and an eight-shade collection.

http://shirocosmetics.com/products/eyes/the-seven-kingdoms-collection -- Another purple for Dani, but lots of earthy tones here, too, and a fifteen-shade collection.

Ooh, _Misfits_.  I can actually see a solid palette coming together from this show -- orange for the jumpsuits, sparkly blue-gray for the storm, more things I can't recall right now because my brain is overloading on trying to sort through possibilities!  I think it could work as a theme for a subscription!  With a sub, a company doesn't have to worry about selling a color/collection since subscribers are locked in, and with the right colors, the theme isn't going to matter anyway.  (Plus this might get people to go *watch* the show because they might get curious about where it comes from!)

Almost.  The theme is *modern* classics from the '70s through the '90s:  _The Exorcist_, _Friday the 13th_, _Halloween_, Child's Play_, etc..  The films @@EggyBread listed are the '50s and '60s classics.  And I would love those, too!  I grew up watching those on weekends (thank you, local tv) before the VCR came into existence (my town didn't get cable until, like 1988, so even that wasn't an option for us)!  Darling Girl has a collection called Oh the Horror that is a mix of horror films from all eras, beginning with _Frankenstein_ and going all the way up to _The Ring_.

Has anyone done a The Last Unicorn collection?

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab does a fragrance line.  It's actually officially designed in collaboration with Peter S. Beagle!

 

Personally, I have *all sorts* of theme ideas, especially when it comes to horror movies.  One of my big ones right now is _Rosemary's Baby_.  It's a very *green* film in my mind.  Another one, since we're heading into winter, and I spend quite a bit of time looking at Mt. Hood (I have an *amazing* view from my office) and thinking about Timberline Lodge up there in all of the snow right now:  _The Shining_ (the exteriors were shot up at Timberline). 

 

A non-horror one:  _singles_.  All of those glorious 1992 grungetones!  I would actually argue that grunge could be a fandom all on its own, and then I would insist on a matte brown with a honey sheen (Mudhoney), a deep evergreen with either a red sheen or red sparks (Screaming Trees), cloudy blue with silver/blue/green (Soundgarden, based on the sculpture park where they got their name), acid yellow with red sparks (Poison Idea, who it could be argued grunge would not exist without), magenta with pink sheen (Pond), rust brown (Tad), violet with an apple-red sheen (Mother Love Bone)...  Uh, anyone know of a brand that would like me to curate a grunge-era collection?  Because apparently I just want to relive my college years right now.  I would want to throw in the Posies and Heatmiser, too, although they don't really fit the grunge aesthetic.  (I could actually easily see an entire Heatmiser collection.  For some reason, they *really* bring out my color-and-music synesthesia.)

And I'll check out the Ten Three collection, thank you so much!
