Happy Friday, fangirls (and boys)! Since school is starting soon–and the weather will be changing with it–I thought I’d focus on fandoms finds for those fashinista fangirls out there! Luckily, ThinkGeek has teamed up with Her Universe and created a new line of Star Wars-inspired clothes for the chic, girlie geek! And–bonus!–they come in sizes XS-2X!

Just check out these A-DORK-ABLE pieces!

I LURVE this Star Wars emblem flowy tank!

Happy Friday, everyone! If you’re as sad as I am to not be at San Diego Comic Con, turn that frown upside down! Just because we aren’t there doesn’t mean we can’t have all the scoop! I’ve got trailers, clips, and news to make you a little happier you’re not dealing with the “wet-wipe-bathing” crowds at SDCC!

Y’all, I was NEVER into anime or Japanese movies before I met Huff the Hubs. Now? He’s made a believer out of me! One of my FAVORITE Japanese films, Death Note, is coming to Netflix and I am SUPER excited! Check out the exclusive con clip!

 

One of my favorite cartoons as a kid was Rocko’s Modern Life and I am feeling all kinds of nostalgic because its being rebooted! And the trailer is FINALLY here!

 

And, of course, we can’t forget everyone’s favorite zombie hunters! The cast of The Walking Dead throws all kinds of crazy in SDCC’s trailer for the AMC show!

 

Technically, this last trailer debuted about a week ago at D23, but I am so freaking excited I HAVE to share with you! This is the first “teaser” (if you want to call it that; it has clips from the first film, not the sequel) of The Incredibles 2 which is set to premiere next June! SQUEEEE!

 

Happy fangirling!

Her’s Day Thursday

Hers Day Thursday Girl

 

With Comic Con kicking off in San Diego yesterday, I thought it would be fun to talk about some of my favorite female characters from the various fandoms I love! And let me tell ya, not all women in geekdom are leather-clad eye candy.

Hermione Granger

Hermione Granger

This book-loving Muggle-born will forever be my favorite character from the Harry Potter universe. Hermione was always the one to tell Harry, Ron, and everyone else to rise above the foolishness that Draco and his cronies were always spouting. She used her brain (and brawn when necessary) and founded S.P.E.W. (The Society for the Promotion of Elvish Welfare). Hermione is a fierce female and I’m proud my kid is named after her!

 

Donna Noble

donna-noble-catherine-tate-2

Nobody–not even Donna herself–thought she was anything special. But, as it turns out, Donna was “the most important woman in the whole wide universe”. After just one trip with the Doctor, Donna was forever changed. She knew something was amiss with the Adipose company and took matters into her own hands, investigating and eventually teaming up with her favorite Gallifrean! Donna traveled the universe and kicked butt during all of her adventures and also fought for the rights of others!

 

Katniss Everdeen

Katniss

Aside from the whole “dangerously-close-to-TwilightI-level-love-traingle”, Katniss is a total BAMF. True, homegirl probably needed some therapy after all of the tragedies she’s endured in her young life, but its not like Panem had healthcare. Anyway, she worked hard to provide for her family after the death of her father, fought bravely in the Arena (TWICE), and basically rescued all of Panem from the hands of yet another dictator. The Mockingjay lives, y’all!

 

Kaylee Frye

Kaylee

Kaylee is not only a sweet, cheerful, down-home girl, but she can fix basically anything with an engine faster than you can say: “No power in the ‘verse can stop me.” Kaylee loves her shipmates on Serenity so genuinely and fiercely loyal to her captain and beloved ship.

My little cousin is getting married this weekend, so I’ve had weddings on the brain for the last week or so. And, with it being summer and the season of weddings, I thought I would feature some awesome Etsy shops that carry everything and bride and groom would need for their nerdy nuptials!

It’s the first Friday in June, peeps! Its time for sun, fun, and lots of pasty legs in shorts! Woot, woot! I’ve rounded up some nerdy nifties to help you get your summer kicked into full gear!

 

Summer days are made for being in the pool. Honestly, I don’t know why people even leave the pool during June, July, and August (especially in Oklahoma)! Why get out of the cool, refreshing place to grab a drink when you can snag this awesome swag from Perpetual Kid?

Float Up Tiki Bar

At over five feet wide, this floating tiki bar has spaces for seven cold beverages (adult or otherwise) as well as a built-in ice chest! ALOHA!

 

Summer is FULL of weddings. Want to look chic while also staying true to your inner geek? Look no further than this a-DORK-able dress from Think Geek!

Star Trek Dress

This dress is covered in retro prints of starships from Star Trek! It even has pockets–that’s the dream!

 

Have a baby shower this summer? Help a sleep-deprived nerd momma out by gifting one of these!

Jedi First Year

This Jedi’s First Year calendar is not only handy for a new momma in her zombie-like state to know what day it is, it also doubles as a “baby’s first year” scrapbook! There are spots for pictures, baby’s milestones, and growth charts!

 

Ladies, are you ever out and about and need a screwdriver? Maybe a bottle opener? A nail file? But you’ve left your big bag of holding at home? Or maybe you just don’t like carrying a bunch of stuff with you. Have I got the thing for you!

These hair clips are also multi-tools! They come in black, silver, and pink! Just look at these specs!

Hallelujah, it’s Friday! And payday! And Cinco de Mayo (hooray for half-priced tacos)! And not only that, but its only 9 days until Mother’s Day! What? You haven’t gone shopping yet?! Not to worry, I’ve got a gaggle of geeky goodies for the great gal in your life!

 

There are many times I have to correct people who say I’m bossy with, “Its not ‘bossy’; its leadership skills.” Got a momma like that? Grab a pair of these mitts from Perpetual Kid!

If you’re a mom of littles, you’re constantly carrying around a ton of crap. Seriously. Between snacks, diapers, wipes, and crayons, I need an enormous bag to carry it all in! Thank goodness ThinkGeek has my nerdy back with this!
