I’ve decided that I deserve to buy 1 or 3 items this year at SDCC. After seeing what BBC America is bringing it looks like I’ll have to bring some extra cash for my Sherlock, Doctor Who and Orphan Black love!! I can get a Red Dalek (heck my name is Cherry) or wear my fandom with a t-shirt! So many great choices! Here are the items that I want to bring home ….

 I must admit to a major weakness for Daleks and Cybermen despite dreaming of being a Doctor or at the least a companion! I wonder if they will have anything with my personal favorite ‘Martha Jones’! Since it’s the final season of Orphan Black am thinking will pick up a Funko of one of the girls!

 

What would you pick up from the booth?

April 21st, 2016 by Cherry

Well I’m a geek and do consider myself pretty stylish. I strongly suspect her friend feels comfortable in her style and isn’t sure on how to incorporate geek style into average daily life and is likely not a great shopper in general so has her favorite outfits that she wears all the time. As much as I love steampunk most of it isn’t appropriate to wear to the average office. So I disagree with Mallory on how to deal with her friend who doesn’t dress appropriately for various situations. I recommend a couple of options.

 

Casual fashion intervention

The first one is take her shopping with you and while at the store pick out some items she can add to her wardrobe that would look nice. ‘Oh this would look SOO cute on you try it on’. Now if she’s resistant to shopping or going to the mall than that might be an issue as to why she has a few outfits that she’s likely gotten at a convention or from a geek site.

 

Cosplay at work

The second is that I love your style but that it’s not work appropriate so it’s standing between you and success aka more money to be able to fund her geek lifestyle. Going to cons and buying stuff is expensive so money is appealing. If she wants to wear her cosplay at work she’ll have to change it up a bit and do more of the steampunk suits (menswear style) or if she’s in a business casual office a jacket over the t-shirts or simple skirt or pants and just use what management wears as a jumping off point to style more in her comfort zone.

 

I suspect your friend needs a big push not a nudge to start to incorporate her geek style into a wardrobe that will fit in a variety of situations from work, to dating, to formal events and just socializing with friends. Since you can wear a Star Wars style dress to a wedding (as long as it’s not Princess Leia’s white gown) that would look great. I love the dress but it was a simple draped grecian gown. I’ve always found that a lot of people look at fashion and clothes as modern armor that protects them and she’s found what she likes and just needs some help with figuring out how to incorporate her style.

Not everyone is a born shopper or enjoys going to the mall and if you do please give your friend a hand with navigating ‘grown up’ fashion.

 

 

Dear Prudence
My roommate is a beautiful soul. Her wardrobe, not so much. She wears cheap, often tacky dresses (most of them with a “geeky” theme like Star WarsDr. Who, etc) all the time. Many of them are full-length ball gowns with petticoats underneath. Her employers appreciate her hard work and dedication, but I’ve noticed they never take her very seriously and she’s never been put in charge of the department she was trained to take over. I adore her geekiness and think style is personal and subjective, but I know not everyone else sees it that way. Her last boyfriend ended things after she wore an R2-D2 gown to his sister’s black-tie wedding, even after he begged to buy her a new dress. She rarely gets a second date. I have tried getting her to try on other clothes, but she seems uninterested. I think it’s entirely possible the outfits are a shield for her insecurity. I believe there is someone out there who will love her the way she is, but part of me wonders whether it’s time to sit her down and be honest because it’s holding her back professionally and romantically and she doesn’t seem to understand why. I’m worried I’ll lose my friend. Should I butt out or speak up?

—Say No to the Dresses

I know my answer should be something about how your roommate has the right to be her geekiest and most authentic self at all times, but I agree that floor-length Dr. Who–themed gowns are not always the appropriate choice for weddings or the workplace. That said, I’m not sure you’re best situated to talk to her about her fashion sense. You say her last boyfriend ended things because of what she wore to a wedding, so presumably she’s aware that her sartorial choices are off-putting to some—I don’t know what you could say to her that’s more effective than “You wore an R2-D2–themed dress, so we’re breaking up.” When it comes to work, your theory that her clothes are keeping her from being named director of her department is just that: a theory. You’ve already tried encouraging her to try other outfits and she’s refused to take the bait. It’s up to her employers to say something if they want her to dress differently at work, and it’s up to your roommate to find romantic partners who like her style. Despite your claim to love her sci-fi bent, I suspect you don’t like (and are perhaps embarrassed by) your roommate’s clothes and are looking for a justifiable excuse to call an intervention. You don’t have one.

“Star Trek is an iconic pop culture phenomena whose storylines pushed gender and racial boundaries. For its 50th anniversary, we celebrate each of Star Trek’s powerful women in a transcending, transformational makeup collection.” – James Gager, M∙A∙C Senior Vice President/Group Creative Director

Nimoy with the announcement of the latest Geek MAC Collection! Screen Shot 2016-04-05 at 5.54.30 PM

I’m so excited that part of the 50th anniversary is new makeup line celebrating Star Trek and the Prime Directive. Any Trekkie worth their salt is salivating over the collection that embraces all Star Trek from the Uhura to Seven of Nine (Borg) and all Screen Shot 2016-04-05 at 5.27.35 PMthe beauty in between of all colors. I’m of course talking about the Orion Slave Girl (the green chick) in the original series who popped up in the movie sassy, funny and sexy as hell!

The 25 piece collection includes lipstick, lipglass, pressedScreen Shot 2016-04-05 at 5.28.51 PM pigment eyeshadow and studio nail lacquer that will incorporate the Star Fleet insignia and 50th (time passes so quick with my geek love Star Trek). This exclusive collection will be available Screen Shot 2016-04-05 at 5.26.28 PMSeptember 2016 but if your attending San Diego Comic Con or are in the area they will have an EXCLUSIVE PRESALE M∙A∙C Gaslamp, Thursday, July 21st (while supplies last). This will be one hot collection for makeup and geek fans so it will be beam off the shelf (tee tee a little Star Trek humor) and displayed! I know I’ll be in line to pick up a set and will be on the lookout for my own sexy cosplay Spock guy to test out my new lipglass dressed as Uhura (the original or new movies .. tough choice). Will you buy one set or all 25 pieces? Leave a note below and tell me which one you plan to choose!

2016 Star Wars™ Half Marathon - Disneyland® Resort, California. January 14-17, 2016

I’ve gone to the dark side for the Star Wars Half Marathon on January 17th in Anaheim next weekend and am sharked that I’m all about Darth Vader! If you plan to do the run next weekend make sure that you check out the REVISED RunDisney rules as far as cosplay goes because (I’m sad to say) no super fun costumes this year . So to stay on the safe side I will not be going as a Jedi or as Endor (no Ewoks for YOU) and had looked at some running pants that were printed but I’m frugal so didn’t want to spend too much money for items that would be too distracting at the gym. I decided going all black would be a good compromise to my not being able to wear Jedi robes. I am a bit curious about rather anyone will try to wear a full outfit but I won’t take a chance. I am very disappointed since a big part of the fun is seeing all of the other fans dress up in cosplay as you run or walk (or in my case) around Disney in the dark with all the rides lit up. It’s quite the sight and is enough to make anyone’s tiny little grinch heart grow three times as you walk around the park!

What are you doing to comply with the new rules? Let me know!

Star Wars Mini Talking Plush – Darth Vader $7.99

Darth Vader Hat $9.99

Eloquii Black Sequin Criss Cross Sweatshirt

Women’s Plus Size Leisure Legging Pants Black-Ava & Viv $17.99

Geek Gift Conventions

 

If you want to give a fun unique gift to impress the geek in your life you can never go wrong with a pass to any number of conventions in the USA. Depending on rather it’s a local convention that is all about Anime, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Steampunk or (the original) Comic Books you can find one that a fan will be delighted to attend. Now I do not recommend promising a high profile ticket (for example) San Diego Comic Con (unless you want to try for 2017) but you should have no problem grabbing passes for the following (once they go on sale):

Wondercon

DragonCon

New York Comic Con

Walker Stalker Con

Gaslight Gathering (Steampunk)

Emerald City Comic Con

Wizard World Comic Con – Chicago

Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo

Supernatural Official Convention

Rose City Comic Con

Star Wars Celebration

St. Valentine’s Day Horror Con – C4

Star Trek Official Convention

E3 – Electronic Entertainment Expo

Indiecade – International Festival of Independent Games

Balticon

Texas Comic Con

Gallifrey One (Dr. Who)

Senshi Con (Anchorage, AK)

Tokyo Comic Con

Animate Miami

These are a few that I personally attend are on my list to checkout with a variety of prices and don’t forget if it’s out of town make a hotel reservation early so that your close to all the action. As you can see some are regional and others are one themed but they are all a blast where you can be yourself either dressing in cosplay or wearing a beloved tshirt with people who ‘know’ or just finally getting to meet the cast and crew of beloved tv/movies surrounded by other fans.
