Preview Day 1, Norse Gods

Happy Tuesday!  What's so happy about just it being the second day of the week?  How about a couple of previews and a new sale!  As it is Week 4 count down till Black Friday here at SBS!

Sound like fun?  Great!  Let's get started with the previews...

I don't know how many of you know all the tales of the Norse Gods so I will give you all a little background with each character.

First we have Christian Thor 

In Norse mythologyThor is a hammer-wielding god associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, the protection of mankind, and also hallowing, healing and fertility.  He is the son of Odin, and husband to golden haired goddess Sif. Thor wields the mountain-crushing hammer,Mjölnir, wears the belt Megingjörð and the iron gloves Járngreipr, and owns the staff Gríðarvölr. Thor's exploits, including his relentless slaughter of his foes and fierce battles with the monstrous serpent Jörmungandr—and their foretold mutual deaths during the events of Ragnarök—are recorded throughout sources for Norse mythology.

...and you all thought he was just supposed to be good lookin' and golden! HA!  Just a little bit of fun facts about this new image of Christian as Thor!

Our second image preview is Jude Loki

Loki's relation with the gods varies by source. Loki sometimes assists the gods and sometimes causes problems for them. Loki is a shape shifter and in separate incidents he appears in the form of a salmon, mare, seal, a fly, and possibly an elderly woman. Loki's positive relations with the gods end with his role in engineering the death of the god Baldr. Loki is eventually bound by the gods with the entrails of one of his sons.
...many of us just though of him as the God of Mischief!  I gotta say, my Jude may not be a god, but he sure is mischievous!

Well that's a little bit of background on each, of course I know both of them better from the actual movies; Thor and The Avengers, but I though the little bit of background info would be fun!

Let's see what the DT has come up with for these two Norse Gods!

Now for our Week 4 sale... as mentioned before I started doing weekly sales about 4 weeks ago.  I will have a new one each week leading up to Black Friday!  WHoohoo!
