Adorable & Geeky Amigurumi Giveaway

Jamila_Girl_Gone_Geek_Loiies_Loops_Aang_The_Last_Airbender_ crochet_ amigurumi_1

I don’t do giveaways often, but when I saw Louie’s Loops crocheted cuties I couldn’t resist! It was hard to pick just one mini doll to review but I had to go with Aang. I’m in the process of finishing Avatar: The Last Airbender and I think the show is perfect. The knitting is tight which makes it durable and perfect for a keychain. Although the shape of Louie’s little pod people are similar, he manages to make them all clearly distinguishable and extra adorable. Enter the giveaway at the bottom of the page for a chance to win a Louie’s Loops amigurumi doll of your choice!

‘Adventure Time’ Dress Giveaway from HalloweenCostumes.com

girl gone geek blog finn dress adventure time

Have you seen a more mathematical dress before?! I received this Finn tunic from the fine folks over at Halloween Costumes to review and I’m in love. It’s described a tunic tank, but fits more like a dress that you could wear with or without jeans, leggings or tights. What I love most about this is that I can rock my Adventure Time love in a girly way. Shirts are cool of course, (trust me I have tons!) but I love flaunting my obsessions with a dress or skirt. These Adventure Time tunic/dresses are a super cute way to show off your Land of OOO citizenship!

Win a LED Lighted iPhone Case from OMG Cases

OMG Case – Interactive color-changing LED lighted case.

Although I only have one phone, I collect cases as if they are Pokémon. But I never had one that turns into a Christmas tree! OMG Cases light up using LED tech (aka magic). So now, not only will my phone sound like the TARDIS landing when someone calls me, but it will light up like a disco ball!

OMG Cases come in 20 designs so you’re bound to find one that you like. I happen to like the zombie one (of course). This will definitely come in handy when I’m at a party and having trouble as usual finding my phone in my black hole of a purse.

Shiny!

GIVEAWAY!

One person will win an OMG Case of their choosing.

Interview with Blake of Comic Geekery

Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

Blake Superman ProfileBlake: My name is Blake. I am a 27-year-old youth minister, currently living in North Carolina with my wife and pet hedgehog named Herbie. I studied art in high school and college. I enjoy many different studio arts: drawing, sketching, watercolor, oil painting, acrylic painting, etc…

You have a hedgehog?

Blake: Yes, he is actually my wife’s. He’s quite cranky and will poke us with his spikes if we annoy him, but can be cuddly if he wants to be. I’ve always thought that it must be a frustrating existence… always trying to intimidate and scare everyone while living in such an adorable body. Herbie

What’s Comic Geekery’s origin story?

Blake: I have always looked for a creative way to create art that people enjoy and get it into their hands. However, much of my art takes months to complete. When you invest so much of your life into a piece, separation anxiety kicks in when you try to sell it.

In the past few years, I have been growing more fascinated by the geeky world of comics. It is fun to learn the different story arcs, the creation of the worlds, and the characters.

One day last fall, as I was in an antique store, thumbing through some of the comic books in stock, I found myself admiring the beauty and color of the artwork. I just love the “look” of the comics on the vintage newspaper-stock pages. My wife was looking for jewelry at the time, and I thought, “I need to combine these two things! All geeks will love it!” I rescued some discount comics from a dull life in a box, and created them into wearable art!

What sets each piece apart is the fact that I created each pendant directly from the cover or page of a vintage comic book. They are not copies or reprints, so each one is totally unique.

I have a lot of fun planning and creating each piece. It is very relaxing and a good break from the day. This is a relatively new startup, so spread the news!

What are your favorite pieces?

DSCN6473bBlake: Even though the images from the cover have bolder colors, I really like the pieces that are made from the vintage newspaper-stock pages. They have a unique look, texture, and feel that are uniquely “comics.”

That being said, my favorite piece by far was one that has sold already. It showed Batman, still in costume, sitting in his Bat Cave, casually drinking a cup of coffee while talking with Alfred. It was unusual and made me laugh. I’m sure I will have a hard time finding another image like that.

DC or Marvel?

Blake: While I do enjoy reading adventures from both, I think I slightly prefer DC Comics over Marvel. After all, my favorite character is Batman. I also prefer comics that are pre-1995… basically, the era of my childhood and before. I like the art style from back then.

If you were on a deserted island what video game, comic book, and movies would you bring?

Blake: I would bring Epic Mickey 2 (I’m also an avid Disney geek), the entire Batman Knightfall series, and the Dark Knight Trilogy with me… and If I wanted to kill even more time, I may bring the entire six seasons of LOST. And while I am at it, I would probably bring along some seeds, matches, and a water purifier.

Original adventures featuring the Eleventh Doctor as played by Matt Smith 

in Doctor Who, the spectacular hit series from BBC Television

Doctor Who: Plague of the Cybermen

By Justin Richards

 Doctor Who: The Dalek Generation

By Nicholas Briggs 

Doctor Who: Shroud of Sorrow

By Tommy Donbavand  

Since Doctor Who’s 2005 revival after an almost fifteen-year hiatus, the British sci-fi show has become an American cult phenomenon, as an Entertainment Weekly cover feature noted in August 2012. But the show’s U.S. following is such that “cult” may well be an understatement. In September, 2.47 million Americans watched Matt Smith and Karen Gillan as the Doctor and Amy in the show’s season seven premiere, giving BBC America its highest rating ever—previously, in 2011, the show was iTunes’ number one most downloaded television series, outselling favorites such as Glee and Mad Men. In December, Doctor Who won TV Guide’s “Fan Favorites,” and 2.4 million viewers tuned in to the show’s Christmas special.

Who fervor is on the rise, given the show’s 50th anniversary this year, so Broadway is thrilled to introduce its forthcoming paperback original Doctor Who tie-in series, sure to feed that insatiable fandom. Featuring all-new Eleventh Doctor adventures and to be published on April 2 to coincide with the new Doctor Who episodes that will air on BBC America starting March 30, Justin Richards’s Doctor Who: Plague of the Cybermen, Nicholas Briggs’s Doctor Who: The Dalek Generation, and Tommy Donbavand’s Doctor Who: Shroud of Sorrow are penned in collaboration with BBC’s Cardiff-based TV production team. These authors are given advance access to the scripts of forthcoming episodes and made privy to the secrets of the Doctor’s future before even the most fanatical of fans. Approved by the BBC to make sure nothing is overlooked, these books have the intimate and authentic feel of lost episodes.

In Doctor Who: The Dalek Generation, we find the Doctor investigating a world in which the Daleks suspiciously seem to be a force for good. In Doctor Who: Shroud of Sorrow, the aftermath of JFK’s assassination is the setting for an attack by an alien Shroud feasting on the grief of a world in mourning. In Doctor Who: Plague of the Cybermen, the Doctor discovers the residents of a 19th-century village beset by a plague that causes its victims to leave their graves. As we follow the Doctor through new catastrophes in history, on earth, and in space, reading Doctor Who: Plague of the Cybermen, Doctor Who: The Dalek Generation, and Doctor Who: Shroud of Sorrow might just be the next best thing to traveling around in a TARDIS, sonic screwdriver in tow, and will leave fans eagerly awaiting Broadway’s fourth all-new Doctor Who adventure, acclaimed science-fiction author Alastair Reynolds’s Doctor Who: Harvest of Time, featuring the Third Doctor, in June.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

JUSTIN RICHARDS has written numerous science-fiction and fantasy novels, including several previous Doctor Who tie-ins. He is creative consultant for BBC Books’ range of Doctor Who fiction.

NICHOLAS BRIGGS is a British actor and writer who has worked on Doctor Who since the 1980s. He has played numerous roles on the show but is best known as the voice of the Doctor’s archenemy, the Daleks.

TOMMY DONBAVAND is an author, actor, and playwright best known for his Scream Street novels for kids. He is also a huge fan of all things Doctor Who, plays blues harmonica, and makes a mean balloon poodle. 

ALASTAIR REYNOLDS’ novels have appeared on numerous “best SF” lists and won several major awards.

Decals for Macbooks Review and Giveaway

My Game of Thrones and Aperture Science decals from Decals for Macbooks

I don’t know about you, but I really love covering my computer in decals and stickers. I’ve been through several since my computer has had more wear and tear than I’d like to share. But I’m really excited for my brand new Game of Thrones decal and Aperture Science (Portal) decals from Decals for Macbooks!

I probably spend more time than necessary deciding on which decals to put on my laptop. Because I have a lot of love for many things, I want to make sure they are all represented. Currently the ones I’m rocking are video game and Doctor Who related (surprise surprise).

But now I’m proud to show my Westerosi pride with a Game of Thrones Stark sigil decal that states the infamous and ominous, “Winter is Coming” line from Decals for Macbooks. And of course I needed the Aperture Science decal… for reasons. I’m sure GLaDOS would approve. Since I’ve had my fair share of really good and really bad decals, I’m happy to say that the application process on these decals was super easy and it only took me one try to apply! Decals for Macbooks has tons of geek themed decals you can stick on your laptop, video game consoles and and other flat surface you fancy.

Get 20% off your order of Decals for Macbooks with the code: GIRLGONEGEEK

GIVEAWAY!

  • Answer: Decals aren’t just for computers, they work on any flat surface, tell me in the comments section below where you’d put your decal if you won.
  • Three winners will get a decal of their choice!
