What Do You Want for Geeks-Mas? Part 2: Ultimate Wish List

Hey there, Evil Geeks! Today, guest writer Jaye is taking us on a tour of her ultimate holiday wishlist!

Jaye’s Christmas List

As my wife and I have tried our damnedest to minimize consumption and clean out the house this year, a Christmas list is a strange thing to reflect on.  There’s my actual list, promptly exchanged on November 1st, which was peppered with lace front wigs and Epcot merchandise, but it’s quite dull in this context.  Removing the limitations of reality allows for something a bit more fantastical, which I mulled over for a few days before committing it to digital ink.  Thus, my Christmas list is as follows:
Image result for millennium falcon
  • The Millennium Falcon
    • As in, the actual ship.  There’s something undoubtedly iconic about her, a worse for wear, junky mix between a Frisbee and the city of Midgar blasting her way through the cosmos.The image of her is both loaded with nostalgia, and inspirational to the though of what journeys may be on the horizon.

Image result for Prince Sidon

  • Prince Sidon Amiibo
    • The breakout star of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Prince Sidon is the supportive shark boyfriend we never knew we needed.  Standing at about 9 feet tall, this toothy sweetheart encouraged Link on his perilous journeys, and wiggled his way into our hearts in the process. Why not immortalize him in a plastic statuette that we can admire on our shelves?

Image result for Final Fantasy VII Remake

  • Final Fantasy VII Remake
    • But not really, because nostalgia is strong and it can’t ever live up to my expectations because of fan entitlement and a sense of ownership of the characters.

  • Kingdom Hearts III
    • Please see above. (Soriku forever.)

Image result for porg

  • A Porg
    • As in, an actual Porg. Similarly to the Millennium Falcon listed above, Porgs are a part of the Star Wars universe, but seem to have caught a bit of vitriol from fans wary of cuteness overload.  These seafaring avian critters, looking like a bizarre cross between a hamster and a penguin, are irresistible to me due to both their wide-eyed stare, and the fact that practical effect puppets were used on set of The Last Jedi to bring them to life.  Consider me pro-Porg.

Image result for Haunted Mansion Movie

  •  The Guillermo del Toro Haunted Mansion Movie
    • Though the 2003 Haunted Mansion movie did have a few redeeming qualities (see: the lovely opening scene, gorgeous costumes and lush gothic sets) it was bogged down by forced comedic moments that fell flat, and an inability to capture what makes the Disney attraction so intriguing in the first place.  del Toro’s unique form of dark fairy tale horror would be a great fit for the spirit of the mansion, though the film sadly seems stuck in development hell.
