This Week's Window Shopping

This week's window shopping was actually sort of a shopping spree... There was just so much good geek gear out there!

To start, this binary wrist watch from UncommonGoods, which Fashionably Geek is going to let one of their fans win sometime next week:

I also found these adorable Hello Kitty iPhone cases:

For sale on Ebay
If I had a laptop, and if it were a Mac (those are two very big and unlikely "ifs"), I would definitely have to have this Frodo laptop decal:

Even if you're not a Star Wars fan, you have to admit this Boba Fett purse has a sharp look to it. Unfortunately, it's not for sale on catpenfold's Etsy page at the moment, but her other stuff is worth checking out, as well. :)

And last but not least, in celebration of "The Hunger Games" movie coming out tonight, and of my highly anticipated viewing of it tomorrow night, a sweet Hunger Games shirt for the ladies, by DreamDesignShop:

This Week's Window Shopping

While I think in many cases leggings tend to get mistaken for a garment you can wear by themselves, I would make an exception for these awesome sword leggings from SOVRIN on Etsy, which I LOVE.

The pace is ever so slightly slow in the beginning of the film (not complaining!), and this is understandable because audiences - especially those who have never read the book - need to hear quite a bit of exposition and background before the tale can proceed.
