Why Everyone’s So Scared of “Fake Geek Girls”

I’m not sure I like the whole fake geek girl thing? Just because you aren’t an obsessive geek doesn’t mean you can’t like the odd fandom, or even wear a Superman or Wonder Woman T-Shirt/Belt/whatever because you like the design.

Why are people threatened by people encroaching on their territory? It doesn’t make any sense. Or at least it didn’t before I read this.

Princess Leia Beanie Hat

Star Wars Leia Beanie Hat

I’ve seen knitted versions of this around but this is probably more practical, who has the time to braid their hair like princess Leia especially when you can just slap on a beanie to get the exact same effect.

You can pre-order it from Entertainment Earth for $17.99 and get your’s in July.

LEGO fuses Evangelion and Gundam

I’ve never been a fan of Gundam, not because I dislike it for any reason, I’ve just never watched it, I do however like Neon Genesis Evangellion, and who doesn’t like Lego? This model combines all three of the above, with a hybrid Eva/Gundam mech made out of Lego. How can any sane geek not love that?

The Above R2D2 Apron is just one of many Geeky Aprons available to buy at Haute Mess’ Etsy Store you can also get Darth Vader, Harry Potter and Wonder Woman Themed ones. I’m not sure if the intent is for them to be used on a daily basis though, they do mention cooking a cleaning in them but the emphasis seems to be on photo shoots and entertaining whilst wearing them, here are a few more samples:

Books For Geeky Babies…

While I object to the use of the word “nerd” I love the concept of this Nerd Baby Colouring  in Book (Yes I spelt  “colouring”  correctly). If/when I have kids they will be getting a copy of this book by Tiffan Yard it seems to me that there is a whole industry based on selling stuff like this to relatively geeky parents as a couple of days ago I spotted another book entitled Introductory Calculus For Infants by Omi M. Inouye which is available at ThinkGeek:

I reckon there is a huge market for this and I’m going to start work on “The Very Hungry Paramecium” and the “Amoeba Who Was Wfraid Of The Dark” immediately…
