Fictional Tech guy Fashion

Has anyone notices that Agent Fitz on Marvel’s Agents of SHEILD is dressed an awful lot like the new Q from Skyfall?

And these two a mashup of the scientists from Pacific Rim.

I like the look, but Q’s sweater and Fitz’s Sweater are awfully similar.  This whole tie and jeans things really reminds me of my college professors.  I hope this is a trend that lasts, well dressed nerdy men on TV and in the movies.  It’s nice to see instead of the poorly dressed nerdy men like in The Big Bang Theory.

Baltimore Comic Con Pictures

At BCC I went as Powergirl and my brother went as Death Stroke.  Here are some of the awesome cosplayers we saw there.  All of the people we met there were super friendly and the floor was one of my favorites.  My only real criticism was that there weren’t enough panels and even more importantly they weren’t strategically placed panels.  It may not have been the best plan to put artist panels against artist panels, and comic book industry panels against other comic book industry panels.  But the atmosphere was awesome, and for me that can be even more important.  Nice people attending and running these shows is the number 1 thing for me.  Making friends and having a great time can make up for the lack of somethings that I want.

TeenTitans vs. Death Stroke.
These kids came out of no where to attack my brother. That was so perfect. Everyone was in character. You can see the smiles on the titans’ faces.

Even The Avengers eventually start to age

I did my best to take as many pictures with as many Supergirls as I could. It just made me happy.

Someone lost their Blossom, I hope she found her Trainer.

These are some great XMen but to be honest I’m not sure which XMen they are.

IMG_20130907_144158

Darth’s costume lit up and flashed. So much joy.

IMG_20130907_144244

Wonder Woman and Black Canary. I like that they took their costumes from the Bombshell Toy Line.

IMG_20130907_155011

There are so many costumes where I stop for a second and think people are doing Xena and Gabby that I get so excited when it really is Xena and Gabby

Link, a staple at every Con

This Kid is the GREATEST cosplayer alive. He was so excited to be the Doctor and couldn’t be more into everything he saw. Awesome job Doctor.

His mustache was drawn on pretty well, it took a few seconds to realize it was just marker.

T I found some more Supergirls, and Lobo.

I have to find Static Shock at every Convention, it isn’t really a convention without him.

IMG_20130907_165437

Since this was the convention where everyone was talking about Batwoman it’s good to know she was already there taking care of herself.

IMG_20130907_170302

Tron! I think it’s super awesome when people’s costumes light up.

IMG_20130907_171612

There were a whole bunch of different Wonder Women at BCC, and they all came with a different cool way to play her

Raven started yelling at Death Stroke across the lobby. It was a magical moment.

IMG_20130908_122844

I love her utility belt.

My favorite of all the Supergirls I found that weekend

Now this last picture is my personal favorite.  See I did something dumb, I forgot to take a picture of me and my brother together.  He just started college too, so I can’t just bug him at home to take a picture with me.  I searched far and wide, and I found this.

Geek Chic- Bracelets

Bracelets are the kind of jewelry that I start the day wearing but never finish the day with.  I like the way they look but all of that clanging can get really annoying really fast.  So if anyone knows how to defeat this problem I would love to hear it.  I wish I could wear them more.

binary_code_geek_copper_bracelet_1 il_fullxfull.338622428 images-2 star-wars-toy-jewelry.jpeg.pagespeed.ce.0Up_9DQ-6D

This is definately a bracelet I would wear.   Always having an extra flash drive could become a lifesaver.

I always like the idea of a good old fashioned charm bracelet.

Tattoos

I can’t believe I haven’t talked about nerdy tattoos yet.  I have mixed feelings about tattoos.  I love them on other people.  I think they are so cool and interesting.  Except face tattoos.  I also hate face cakes, the ones with the edible pictures on them, so maybe it’s just a face thing.  I really want to get one in theory but I’m terrified of needles.  I also know for me I would probably get bored with the design.  When I get a manicure I’ve spent too much money on it to pick it off and change the color but after a certain point that’s all I want to do.  I can’t imagine putting something on my body I can’t change.

In celebration of the SteamPunk World’s Fair

Here in New Jersey this weekend was the SteamPunk Worlds fair this weekend.  Although I didn’t go, my parents did.  And here are some different pictures from around the internet of people wearing steampunk super heros.  Because well, they are super cool and awesome.

Geek Chic Home Decor

Nerd Fashion doesn’t have to end with what you put on your body.  So many people have nerded up their houses. It seems that the most popular room to do it in is a kid’s room or in a nursery.  It makes sense in a lot of ways because then as an adult you have it but you don’t have to see it all the time.  Or if someone comes to visit they don’t think, Wow this is intense.  I’m  a big fan of the TARDIS wall sticker and probably would put that somewhere in my apartment for people to see.  Or a Blue door to the outside would be a nice subtle way for a geek reference.

What a nerdy weekend

This saturday was not only May the 4th, or Star Wars Day, but it was also Free Comic Book day.  What a great day to be a nerd.  I, of course, had to dress for the occasion.  I wore my Darth Vader t-shirt and Star Wars skirt.  When I went to the comic book store, it was awesome seeing storm troopers everywhere.  I also got a graphic novel I’ve been looking for, for about a year and a half- FEAR ITSELF.  It’s been so hard to find it.  You can’t shake a stick in a comic book store without finding part of the story, the Captain America story or the Thor story, but finding the miniseries has been so hard.  I finally got it.  I’m super pumped.  And I got to find it while being all decked out in my nerd clothes.  I will be reading it later wearing my Marvel skirt, reading my Marvel story.  It’s perfect.

Although, the comic books for free comic book day this year weren’t as good as they have been the past couple of years, oh well.  You win some, you lose some.

Anyone else have a good free comic book day?
