I GET IT. It’s hard to let things go when you’ve had them for so long and they have sentimental value. Trust me when I say this: Its not cute. However, there are ways of keeping that tradition alive…
The last thing a girl wants to see when she gets into your room is an blanket from 2001 that SMELLS like 2001. But lets face it; YOU LOVE SPIDER MAN! You can’t get rid of it! …Okay but you need to. Here are some ways of keeping your love for Spiderman -or whatever other fandom your apart of- with you.
Trade those printed blankets for some colour themed ones instead.
For example: If you love Captain America (or even the habs for this colour scheme) , have white pillows, a blue blanket, and some red throw pillows. Same goes for Spiderman, X-men, Lord of the Rings…whatever! You name it, theres a colour scheme for it!!!
Put up some cool pop-art on those blank walls.
You can literally keep this art piece for the rest of your life if you wanted to! It’s cool, fun, and a little more grown up than those posters and a WAY better alternative than those blankets.
If you have a collection…
comic books, artifacts, or collectors items build a cool shelf for it! There’s nothing wrong with owning these things so OWN IN. Once they are on display in an organized way they look way cooler than shoved in a corner or sprawled out on the coffee table.
At the end of the day, what I’m trying to say is that there is nothing wrong with loving something and being part of an
awesome fandom. As you get older, it’s harder to incorporate these things into your decor because you don’t want to be scrutinized by everyone, however, with these tips you can be a hardcore fan AND feel a bit more grown up.
