Weeping Angel For Fandom Friday!

My daughter and I share a love of all things geek. We are both geeks and we know it. We also share a love of Doctor Who. He makes us happy. We had a discussion earlier today about things that we are interested in. Much of those things are the same. She said that we are part of the fandom. What does that mean?

 Fandom (consisting of fan [fanatic] plus the suffix -dom, as in kingdom) is a term used to refer to a subculture composed of fans characterized by a feeling of empathy and camaraderie with others who share a common interest.

Pretty sweet. Right? I, being the most awesome mom in the universe decided to make my sweetie a Doctor Who themed lunch. Now I don't have any special Doctor Who cookie presses yet. I stress the word YET! So I used a angel cookie cutter from my stash and made a Weeping Angel lunch.

The Weeping Angels are by far my most favorite villains in the Doctor Who series. They are so creepy and if you BLINK they will transport you through space and time. So take a look at this lunch. And whatever you do DON'T Blink!

Now if you are a Doctor Who fan you will already know which elements of the lunch have to do with the show.Of course the Weeping Angel sandwich, Don't blink, because you never want to take your eyes off of a Weeping Angel. The Tardis blue silicone cup. The big eye, because The Doctor saw the big eye when he first met Miss Amy Pond. Lastly the cute Converse sneaker napkin. Because The Doctor wears Converse!                                                                                                                      

I hope you enjoyed the Doctor Who fandom bento. It was fun to make and my sweetie loved it.

Do you have a fandom lunch? If so link them up with the InLinkz link-up below! Any fandom lunch. Examples: Harry Potter, Batman, Superman, a favorite book just about anything!

What I used in this lunch:



  1. Awesome lunch. For the linkup are you only looking for Dr. Who Fandom lunches or other Fandom themes such as Harry Potter? If others, please give some examples. Thanks!

  2. Hi Amy!

    LOVE the lunch. We are huge Dr. Who fans here too (though my boys are still a bit young for it)! The weeping angels scare the crap out of me and I have to skip those episodes (lame I know).

    I'm super duper excited because a friend of mine (originally from Britain) is going to visit his mum for the holiday and agreed to bring me back some bento items I've been wanting from across the pond. I ordered them on Amazon UK and they are waiting for him to bring back. Included in the stash are some Dr. Who cutters! I. Can. Not. Wait.

    Can't wait to see what other fandom lunches you come up with!
