San Diego Comic Con—aka, Nerd Christmas in the Summer— came and went. I attended for the entire weekend this year and snapped a handful of photos of cosplayers and all the cool things around the convention. There were way more that I missed, of course. The heat was brutal this year and I am too much of a wuss to walk in extreme heat. Fortunately, there were still tons of things to see and do. Check out the photo slideshow below! You can also view the photos on our Facebook page as well.
SPQ and Gizzy B recuperate from their weekend of stalking Stephen Amell in Portland and wonder why they can’t be as pretty as CW men. The Lady Geeks talk about The X-Files, The Interview and Star Trek. Fanfic Theatre: Arrow x Step Up.
Christmas season is upon us, and now more than ever there are many geek gifting options.
I’ve seeing the various geeky gifts lists pop up here and there, gifts for lady geeks, gifts for dude geeks, gifts for lazy geeks, and so on.
But lets be honest, tis the season of giving, and buying for our fellow geeky friends what we could never justify buying for ourselves. Not because we don’t love treating ourselves to well earned gifts, but because sometimes we feel a tad bit guilty buying those $20.00 geek themed cookie cutters when we should probably spend that money responsibly, like on booze or kitty litter.
I have compiled a list of 10 awesomely geeky gifts that we love, and would love to receive, though we might not necessarily buy for ourselves. However, we would have zero problems buying this for our friends or significant others (hint hint, significants!) I have also made this list completely absent of t-shirts and leggings, much as I love them, I think we can aim to be a little more creative than what we normally give our fellow geeks.
These 3D ornaments are rather gorgeous, and would be an amazing addition to any geek themed Christmas tree.
Brace Yourselves, Valentine’s Day Cards are coming.
Okay, so the fandoms over on Tumblr have already begun rolling out some pretty hilarious Valentines. No, really if these were really available they’d put Hallmark out of business. Here is a selection of the most interesting ones being reblogged from the cute feel inducing ones to the down right wrong! (But hilarious)
