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. :)

Also from the treasure trove that is Etsy, these "His and Hers" mugs with Han Solo and Princess Leia's famous romantic exchange on them, by LennyMud:

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.


Also, check out this incredibly clever Dewey Decimal System pendant from thependantemporium shop on Etsy.  I want!

But there are so many awesome designs, including today's, which features a quote from Vasquez in "Aliens." :)


WonderCon 2018

WonderCon is a comic book, fantasy, and sci-fi convention brought to Anaheim, Calfornia by Comic-Con International.  It is a great place not only to find oneself a new comic to get into (or an old one!), but also to hear from professionals in film, comics, animation, storyboarding, writing, and various other visual mediums.  And of course, a visit to WonderCon would be incomplete without an exploration of the exhibit hall - featuring hundreds of artists and craftsmen of all styles and methods.

While I have attended San Diego Comic-Con before, this was my first experience with WonderCon.  WonderCon still draws thousands of fans, cosplayers, press, and professionals, but in terms of crowds, length of lines, and ease of getting into the events one's heart is set on seeing, WonderCon is far less overwhelming than San Diego Comic-Con.

I was fortunate to receive a pass from and attend with a couple of my friends, one of whom is an accomplished animator, and this was their first conventi…

Chain Mail Bikinis Don't Count As Armor, and Other Thoughts (Mild Spoilers)

Comics Alliance calls it "The story Disney should have been telling for the past 20 years," and while I believe Disney plays its part in a healthy mix of fairy tales for children, every little girl (and boy, for that matter) should read a comic like "Princeless." "Princeless," from Action Lab Entertainment, introduces us to Adrienne, a princess who is not interested in waiting around in her tower to be rescued. A prince even shows up at one point to do just that, and she turns him away, saying, "Don't let the dragon hit you on the way out." Love it.
