Your Favorite New Bag was Sent From Mars ;)

Happy Friday! Are you ready for the weekend?! I know I am, so let's start it off right! Today I am super excited to share an AMAZING giveaway for you guys! It's seriously awesome. I'm already jealous of whoever's going to win!

Yes! The beautiful stormtrooper clutch could be yours! Check out the bottom of the post for the giveaway widget, but first let me introduce you to my new friend, Mari! Last month I had the pleasure of meeting Mari while I was at work (it was fate, I'm telling you). Mari runs an Etsy shop called Sent From Mars, where she sells her amazing handmade clutch purses! Here's a few more of her designs, and an introduction from Mari herself :)

Bowser purse
Was Bowser always so cute?

Sent From Mars is an online store designing accessories based on geeky icons for everyday fandom fashion! I focus on clutch purses made from high quality leather and faux leather, sewn together with extraordinary precision, and created out of a love for movies and video games!

My design adventures started as a kid hand-sewing outfits for toys, which set the stage for Sent From Mars. A Design degree at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising led me to designing apparel, accessories and artwork for companies like Old Navy and Gymboree, and even getting to design some of my own game characters for Waka Flocka Flame in Wakaville.

With this industry experience, Sent From Mars was born, allowing me to bring my own geeky creations to life and pursue the things that I love! In addition to an online store, I also create geeky DIY projects including costumes, toys and d├ęcor for my blog, Sent From Mars. These designs have been featured in geek publications like Fashionably Geek, and have made their debut on CBS Good Day Sacramento.

Bringing Geek-culture into the modern world is at the heart of every design and inspiring other to pursue their dreams is my ultimate objective!

Hedwig purse
It looks like Hedwig is finally bringing your Hogwarts acceptance letter!

I've seen a fair amount of geeky bags before, but I think what really makes Mari's work stand out is the crazy amount of detail and creativity in each and every bag she makes. Lots of other people think so too, because Mari was nominated in the fashion category for The Geekie Awards, going on right now! If you're a fan of her work be sure to stop by the voting page and vote for her! Voting ends on August 31st, and you can vote once a day.

Kirby purse
Kawaii Kirby (>^-^)>

A few more characters in her collection include Heisenberg, Rufio, and Boba Fett! It's almost impossible to decide, but I think this Shark King clutch is my favorite. I love all things from the ocean, and just look at how happy he is! Swoon <3 To follow all of Mari's work, you can visit her on her blog, Etsy, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube! She has some really cute DIY videos on YouTube - when I need a new book for my bullet journal I want to try her DIY Notebook Upgrade!

Are you obsessed yet? If so, use the rafflecopter widget below to enter for a chance to win a Stormtrooper clutch of your own! Each task gives you one entry in the giveaway. You can do all of them or just one, it's up to you! I like giving people lots of options in case they don't use certain social media sites (CoughSnapchatCough). This giveaway is open to US residents only (sorry international friends, next time!) and will run through 9/12/15. Please don't enter with giveaway accounts - the winning entry will be verified! Have fun, and good luck!
