Pink Thing of The Day: Nancy Pelosi Acton Figure in Pink Dress

nancy pelosi action figure pink

The folks at FCTRY, who’ve been turning cultural and political icons into action figures since 2008, are adding a gorgeous Nancy Pelosi Acton Figure to their already impressive line of progressive heroes that includes RBG, Biden, AOCSanders and Hillary (which I own) among many others. Nancy is seen here rocking a hot Pink Dress (earning her the honor of being a Pink Thing of The Day), accessorized  with sensible white pumps, while she carries a white gavel in one hand, and Dump’s hideous wig in another (though I believe that is just a photo prop)! Nancy’s incredible likeness was sculpted by Seattle-based artist Michael Leavitt, whose work you have seen on the blog many times. He is so talented! While FCTRY prepares Nancy’s Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for her series, you can help spread the word about this project and possibly earn a free action figure. To find out how to get a free Nancy Pelosi Action Figure, please click Here, then scroll down to the Quid Pro Quo section. Can’t wait to own this lovely and powerful lady!

I saw this fabulous Pink Metallic Mesh Dress in a shop on Greene Street in SoHo when I was party-hopping during the Open Showrooms evening that closes out the two-week long NYCxDesign event.

Pink Metallic Mesh Dress Detail

Here’s a detail shot of the mesh that I managed to get, even though at this point I was already too tipsy to remember to note the name of the store I was in. Oops.

The camera roll on my phone tells me that pictures of the dress were taken at 31 1/2 Greene Street, but I looked up that address and I am pretty sure it was south of that exact location. It sure is a great-looking dress. I would wear it.

Update 10/19/19: The store is called The Webster and it’s located at 29 Greene Street!

Bergdorf Goodman Department Store on Fifth Avenue is known worldwide for their stunning seasonal window displays, but all you have to do is step inside to see that this same visual aesthetic carries over to every inch of the store. I took these photos when my friend Lorrie and I visited Bergdorf’s after we had an amazing Afternoon Tea at the Plaza Hotel, which is just next door.

Five Points Fest did not really have a ton of cosplayers running around, at least not on the day I attended, but this dedicated fan of the animated TV show Steven Universe definitely stopped me in my tracks, dressed as they were as the likeness of Rose Quartz, a character from that show. Oh, the Pinkness.

Here’s what Rose Quatrz‘ character looks like on the show, so you can see they did a bang up job replicating her costume! You can read more about Rose Quartz on her fan-created Wiki Page!

Talk about an “Oh Wow” factor that is just off the charts! This breathtaking, Pink Fantasy Window Display at the Buffalo Exchange vintage clothing store stopped me dead in my tracks.

Pink Apron Dress

As if the above Pink Apron Dress wasn’t eye-catching enough, the window dressers accessorized the mannequin’s outside with vintage toys, and more toys were strewn as the base of the display. It was like Christmas, Easter and Halloween all in one display!
