SDCC 2017: Scenes Around the Con, Part 1

Preview night has become one of my favorite nights at San Diego Comic-Con. It is the only night I can tolerate the Exhibit Hall, which becomes way too crowded once the con kicks off on Thursday. I didn’t go shopping this year (I had to be very disciplined). Check out photos of all the cool things I didn’t buy though!

Geekmas Time Is Here!

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.

10. Virtually Vintage – 3D Geek Ornaments ($10.00/ea)

These 3D ornaments are rather gorgeous, and would be an amazing addition to any geek themed Christmas tree.

Japan LA’s 8th Year Anniversary

Japan LA 8th Year Anniversary

 Japan LA, a store of all things adorable in Los Angeles, celebrated their 8th year anniversary. It’s been awhile since I’ve attended a Japan LA event, but they always will hold a special place in my kawaii heart. Hello Kitty was in attendance to take photos with guests as well as singer, Traci Hines and all-around-amazing-person, Jenny Rae.

Yes, much shopping was had on my part and customers who spent more than $30+ got a free gift bag as well. I managed to snag a bag of full of Rilakkuma goodies!

Check out more photos below.

KiguArt-logo

Our last episode of the year is also our last live show of the year at SUPER*MARKET Nightmarket at Meltdown Comics. Hooray! In this holiday themed podcast, the Lady Geeks whipped out their holiday wish lists and broadcasted their inner most wishes from deep within their souls. There was also some Gangnam Style going on.

Super*MARKET Nightmarket, the Holiday Edition

SUPER*MARKET Nightmarket!

We took the podcast to SUPER*MARKET again for a special, holiday edition at Meltdown Comics hosted by our friends at Bubble Punch. Super*Market the perfect place to shop for handmade and unique items and the timing was great for shopping for gifts. Christmas gifts. Holiday gifts. Gift gifts. Though I must confess, I only shopped for myself!

Check out our photos from the event below! By the way, Chubby Bunny borrowed my camera at some point while we were doing the podcast show — so more than half of these photos were taken by her with my camera!

GEEK SHOPPING: My Rarity Hoodie

When WeLoveFine.com launched their My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic hoodies, I was in the midst of having my eyes glued on the screen watching one of my new favorite cartoons on Netflix. Although my friends have said I am more like Twilight (I agree), my favorite Pony is Rarity!

I needed the Rarity hoodie in my life. The package arrived a couple of weeks ago but I just got around to taking photos of wearing it.
