Merry Christmas from 8-Bit Girl!

Hi everyone,

Firstly, sorry for not posting that often as of late - life has been pretty hectic in the past few months. I hope to rectify this in the new year.

This is just a quick blog to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and all the best for 2017! Thanks for all your support, via here, Facebook and Twitter over the past year - you're all great. :)

To finish things off, here's a photo of my kitten Percy making himself at home in my Disney Christmas tree (it's been impossible to steer him away from it!).


Have a great one!

I Tested Out the Arcade PICO Pocket Drone



You probably would have noticed by now that I love to play around with a gadget or two (I've featured plenty on 8-Bit Girl in the past). The latest, courtesy of MobileFun.co.uk was one I was looking forward to trying out. Step forward the PICO Drone, by Arcade. 

Priced at £24.99, this is one of the smallest drones currently available on the market. Drones were one of last Christmas's most-requested pieces of tech, but there's no denying that they're a bit expensive. This option might not have all the bells and whistles available in the larger models, but it promised some flying fun, in miniature form. So how good is this, exactly? I've been playing with this for the past few days, so join me as I share the pro's and con's of this little gadget.

How To Make a Minnie Mouse Cosplay

On the 29th of October 2016, I cosplayed as Minnie Mouse for the London MCM Comic Con. I don't cosplay often, mainly because it takes up a considerable amount of time and money to get a costume sorted, but this time around I thought I'd get something ready! 

Join me as I talk you through my quick and easy Minnie Mouse cosplay.

8-Bit Girl's MCM Comic Con October 2016 Video!


I attended the MCM Comic Con on the 28th and 29th of October. The 29th of October, I went in cosplay as Minnie Mouse! It was a very busy and tiring day, but so much fun too.

Here's a short video I created for the two days. I also took a bunch of photos of my cosplay and others, which you can view on the 8-Bit Girl Facebook page here.

Tomb Raider: 20 Years of Lara Croft Spotify playlist!


Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of the first ever Tomb Raider game's release on the Sega Saturn. I love the Tomb Raider series, ever since we first picked up Tomb Raider 1 as one of our first games for the PS1. I also love that I'm followed by a bunch of Tomb Raider fan-sites, fans and cosplayers who are all as excited to follow Lara's adventures as much as I am.

Starting Destiny


I started Destiny today! I tried it before in the past, but playing alone was a little tricky, and not as fun to be honest. However, this time around, I've been playing with two others (my FiancĂ© and my friend), and it was a damn sight more enjoyable.

Check out the screenshots I took whilst mucking about, below!

My July 2016 Paris Trip


I uploaded these videos to my sister blog, Geek Mash a few months ago, but as 8-Bit Girl now incorporates everything I'm into, I thought I'd share them with you here, too! 

In July, myself and my FiancĂ© had a 4 day break to Paris. During this time, we did the usual touristy things (Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomph, etc), but the highlight for me was our day at Disneyland Paris.

Check out the two videos we filmed and edited below!
