Nerd Fashion!


First, we have CollegeFashion's tribute to my favesies Game of Thrones, "Fashion Inspired by House Stark."
All of the outfits are really cute, but I don't know how warm they'll keep you once you head north of the Wall.  I'm looking forward to their Targaryen-themed post, because I need to work on my Lollapalooza outfits!

Yes, Lolla is still 5 months away.
Yes, I'm still thinking about my outfits.

Next, le fancy geek pointed me towards this beautiful tee featuring an Art Nouveau version of none other than my first nerd girl role model, Princess Peach.
So pretty!  LOOK AT HER HAIR!  Girl, how much do you spend on leave-in conditioner!?

Last, Etsy seller Linda Heredia brings sexy back with this Marvel superheroes corset!
Pink hair + corset top + faux leather leggings = when's the next party?  I'm so over this week.

Of All the Soles I Have Encountered...

Get it?  Soles!!??  Cause, feet. 

After a time, you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing, after all, as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true. --Spock in 'Amok Time'

However, having a pair of Spocks is probably a more pleasing things than wanting a pair of Spocks.

Ivy, How'd You Get So Fly?

Cosplayer Rei-Doll created this super sexy, classy, steampunk-inspired Poison Ivy getup.

Before you check out her deviantArt gallery, BEWARE!  You're about to lose your entire afternoon because of amazing looks like this:
Seriously, when will ruffs make a comeback?

Tah Oos Azaluz Ooval Poddraces

.....I'm told that means "The most hazardous of all podraces."  I thought it meant, "I love this clever little Jabba wallet and Slave Leia coinpurse!"

Somewhere there's a Han-in-carbonite cell phone cover that is just waiting to be paired with this.

GIRL.  You do not look ready to be launched into space!!

Oh, wait, we're not talking about her.  DUH.  Sometimes I get distracted by cute outfits.

We're talking about 13-year-old science fair participant (and spoiler alert WINNER) Lauren Rojas.  [Who I hope does not have weird cartoon cat leotards and frilly pink garters.  Maybe when you're older, sweetheart...]

Lauren's science fair project--"The effects of altitude on air pressure and temperature"--launched a Hello Kitty doll into space!  OMG so cute!

Check out the video of the launch:
THAT IS SO COOL.  CAN I SEE IT IN IMAX?  Also, great taste in music, right?

Rojas was one of four award-winners at Cornerstone Christian school's 7th grade science fair.  Now she gets to go to regionals, and we all know that what happens at regional science fair stays at regional science fair!  Oh, no, nevermind, I just googled it.  What happens at regional science fair goes onto state science fair.

Good luck at regionals, Lauren!

Pepper Potts Will Totally Make the Best Dressed Lists

Before we go any further...SPOILER ALERT!!!

I wouldn't want to do to you guys what this Jezebel article did for me and Downton Abbey.

On Thursday, The Mary Sue quoted from an interview with Marvel Studios CEO [OMG imagine how rich he is all because of SUPERHEROES] Kevin Feige in which he discusses Pepper Potts [more like Pepper Hotts, amirite!?!???] and what she may or may not wear in Iron Man 3.

"We are bored by the damsel in distress," says Feige.


As I've covered before, I am a goddamn damsel, so haters to the left.

Feige continutes:
In the comic books she does get a taste for the suit and becomes her own hero named Rescue, who doesn’t necessarily battle other people, but is on missions to help people and to save people. Will we do that down the line with Gwyneth Paltrow? Who knows. But her being in the suit is something we have been playing with since ‘Iron Man 2,’ where we did some designs and it didn’t end up fitting in that movie.

On the one hand, that would be so cool and exciting and I cannot wait for the midnight show!

On the other hand, what an awful outfit choice for such a hottie-with-a-body!!

On the other other hand, maybe she'll make a bikini version and then I can do some sexy Iron Man cosplay!

Show Me Your Elder Wand...Wait, Is That Dirty?

The next time any of you want to woo me, Harry Potter jewelry is a good way to go!

So Does This Mean Your Butt is Bigger on the Inside?

YAY leggings!

You guys, "leggings aren't pants.  They're superior."  And not just because they show off dat ass!

Hot Bod, Samus!

Just Girl Power Is All We Need

"GRRRLpower!!! (Wrath)" by deviantArtist derLarm is, like, totally awesome.

I mean, let's break it down.

  1. Sailor Moon is, like, super strong.
  2. Sailor Moon is, like, super pretty.  [Look at that sailor suit!  So cute!!]
  3. Sailor Moon is surrounded by rainbows and what appears to be lens flare.
  4. Sailor Moon is kicking The Hulk so hard that his motion lines look like an explosion.
I also like that the title reminds me of The Spice Girls, obvs.

Let's Makeout!!

Oh my, this lipstick!!

Well, I guess it’s not actually lipstick—more of a lip-tical illusion (womp womp)—but close enough.

I’m totally going to wear this on my next hot date.  It’ll totally guarantee a goodnight kiss at least ;)

Go, Go Bikini Rangers

The Pink Ranger was always my favorite.

I know, DUH.  She was the hottest.  She got that cute little skirt over her unitard.  And, most importantly, she got THE GREEN RANGER.

Now I can attract all those would-be Green Rangers at the beach in this Pink Ranger bikini.  (And if you want to cover your butt, too, the bottom half is available here).

[Though I will not be purchasing the beach combat boots, which is what this model seems to be sporting.]

It's morphin' tannin' time!

I like my Sketchers, but I love my Yoda backpack.

Remember mini backpacks?

I always wanted the same one that Cher had in Clueless.  You know, the one that looks like she skinned a collie.  ["It's faux."]

Well, now I don't want a faux fur mini backpack.  Now I want a FREAKING YODA MINI BACKPACK!

This cute little guy is available at Big Bad Toy Store for $35.99.  There's also Darth Vader, if you're more of a Dark Side type.

There is no savings.

Someday My Doctor Will Come


If I were going to be on Doctor Who, I'd play Amy Pond.  BUT that role has already come and gone.  So, barring some wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey tricks, I'll have to go to my second choice, which is some kind of royalty.

Well, GUESS WHAT!?  They already designed the perfect costume for what I can only assume would be a Time Princess.  Similar to a Time Lord, but prettier and with Cathy Cambridge hair.

Artist Anne-Louise Richards (who is 17, BTDubs, so there's your Feel-Old-And-Unsuccessful for the day) sketched this UHmazing ballgown for the TARDIS enthusist:

As if that wasn't enough, Redditor _queenofhearts decided to pull a Fairy Godmother and make everyone's dreams come true BY MAKING THE WHOLE DRESS:
Though I must admit my favorite part is that adorable wittle ginger kitty cat!

Ever After, Journey Over...Or Is It?

Cast this man in every musical.  Immediately.

She Said Yes! SO SAY WE ALL.

Reddior DisturbedRobot met his girlfriend at a Battlestar Galactica party.  I KNOW, RIGHT!?  Already so gross-cute and nerdy.

When he was ready to pop the question, he knew he had to do something worthy of their humble, BSG beginnings.  So he designed a custom Cylon-y ring.  He had the diamond and gold from his grandmother's engagement ring--AHH my heart! So many feels!--"reforged by jewelry crafter Craig Elliott."

The inclusion of the word reforged made this even better.  I <3 smithing terms.

The Princess Is In Her Own Damn Castle

Anita Sarkeesian runs the blog Feminist Frequency where she explores the portrayal of women in pop culture.  As you can imagine, this makes her kinda unpopular, because people love hatin' on the ladies.

(Don't believe that people hate on the ladies?  Check out this note from her TEDxWomen page: "WHY ARE COMMENTS TURNED OFF? This talk comes from a woman who was targeted by an online hate campaign. Predictably, the same campaign has targeted this talk, so comments have been shut down. If you’d like to comment constructively on this video, please share on your own social networks.")

She's just started a new part of her video series, "Tropes vs Women in Video Games," and Part 1 looks at my personal fave trope, The Damsel in Distess.  It's my fave because I'm a damsel and always slightly in distress.  Unfortunately, my distress is more did-I-choose-the-wrong-outfit-today and less this-dragon-locked-me-in-his-castle.

But unlike me, Sarkeesian is anything but a DiD (that's my abbrev for damsel in distress), as you can see from her cool vid below.

"We're Starks. Our way is the vintage way."

There are no words for this.  Only screams.  Screams of joy and pain.


You Solo'd Me!

In case you haven't had your fill of Star Wars love, head on ovah to the blog and check out Jennifer Heddle's "Han & Leia: Why They're Perfect Together."

Like, we know that they're The Best Couple Ever, but Heddle gives us some reasons why they totally stand out.

I love this little bit:
"In fiction we see all too many examples of women changing themselves to get a guy, or putting up with questionable behavior for the sake of True Love. In the Star Wars saga, Han’s the one who needs to grow up a little and become a part of something greater than himself, and he does. And what’s really important is that Leia doesn’t ask him to change; he does anyway, and it’s largely her dedication, spirit, and love that lead him to it."

Is Nerf Herder Love Like Muskrat Love?

In case you haven't noticed, I LOVE LOVE.

A lot of girls love love.  Like, being in love is essentially the "this is your brain on drugs" part of the PSA, but without taking any drugs and also without the permanent damage.  [Weeeeeeellll sometimes there's permanent damage, but that's WAY TOO EMO for a post about how love makes me squee.]

Love is also super dramatic.  Which is why so many high stakes, epic love stories take place within high stakes, epic movies/books/TV shows.  Like, for instance, Star Wars!

You all already know how I feel about Han & Leia.  Seriously I'm obsessed.  Maybe if Han stopped being such a ruggedly handsome (some say scruffy-looking) rogue and Leia stopped being such a coke-thin badass [and also a freaking princess, thus embodying all of my dreams], maybe then I would stop loving them.

Well, over on, the always-amazing Bonnie Burton goes beyond just my fave couple and talks about love all across that galaxy far, far away.  Take a look, then go cry into your pillow because HAN WILL NEVER BE YOUR MAN.

I mean...not that that's what I'm going to do....who would do something stupid like that......?  Ha ha ha.  That is not a nervous laugh.

PS--It took everything in my power not to make an insanely dirty "Han shot first" joke.

Unicorn Boots

No, "Unicorn Boots" is not the title of my sophomore album.


These $440 beauties are made-to-order by Etsy seller Oonacat.  She also has horns, paws [!!!], and ears, so you can go ALL OUT!

These are totally perfect for all your weirdest, bordering-on-furry cosplay!

Or, you know, just a kick ass going out outfit.  You'll totally catch the attention of all the kinksters up in da club ;)

Sephora + Disney = Girly Nerdgasm!


Sephora has teamed up with Disney to create oh-so-pretty makeup collections based on Princess Jasmine and Cinderella!  AS IF SEPHORA COULD BE ANYMORE OF A PARADISE.

The eyeshadow palettes have colors specifically inspired by frames in the movies:
And the packaging is absolutely gorgeous:
Now, if only someone would get into the business of selling street rats with magic carpets and totally disarming smiles...

This Is The Mixer I'm Looking For

I love being a happy housewife.

And housewifey requires that I drool over kitchen appliances.  I mean, who doesn't get all excited when they see color coordinated cookware?

I always thought I wanted a red KitchenAid, but this changed my mind:
