Special Request: A special shout out to all of my new recent viewers and followers! I love meeting new people and I’ve enjoyed visiting your blogs. Thanks for the follow! I’ve had a recent influx of visitors from Facebook and I can’t for the life of me figure out why. If there is a particular Facebook image or post that sent you my way, would someone let me know about it? Thanks! Enjoy my Doctor Who Day post where I link you up to all the fun stuff for Whovians this week.
A TARDIS bow tie for the Whovian bow tie enthusiast! You can get your own for only $20. Plus you don’t actually have to tie it, it comes on an elastic band. [via]
I do love cosplay, especially Doctor Who cosplay, so I enjoy the FuckYearDoctorWhoCosplay tumblr account. But I especially enjoyed this River Song cosplay by Ambrosia. [via] I wish my hair would stay curly like that instead of disintegrating in this humidity. Sigh.
Build a light fixture that looks like a crack to the universe in your wall. Super clever! I love it. Annnd I have a handy boyfriend. Hmmm.
I received notification from Vince Garbarino that he had created an arrangement on the 11th Doctor’s theme, “I Am The Doctor.” It’s pretty cool. You should listen to it while you check out the links on this post.
Check out this cool superhero life expectanies infograph. It cracks me up that a character played by Nicholas Cage has the longest life expectancy. Bwahahahaha. I bet this means that Cage will never die! Also check out these Super Likes where the like symbol has been mash-ed up with Superhero hands. I *likes* it a lot. (Come on, I had to make that pun.) But seriously, check them out super cool. (Thanks for the tip Mom!)
I like to giggle, and I do it a lot. Especially when I find things like this website: Pinterest You Are Drunk. For example a toilet seat cover. . covered in Barbie shoes, half camis that look like panties, and our sexy Forefathers on yards of material. Yeah. That site gets addictive. I recommend setting a timer and making yourself leave the site!
Speaking of Pinterest, it isn’t always drunk, and I found this wonderful steampunk Batgirl cosplay. You can visit the cosplayers website “for articles on cosplay construction, tabletop gaming, comics, and more!” Thank you Pinterest for being sober this time around and for showing me things like a steampunk R2D2! I also want to thank you for all the beautiful street art I find on your website. Particularly the mural of the side of this house where it looks like you can see into the building. Super cool!
I found this fantastical light house illustration for a children’s book on DeviantArt. I want to go to there.
I decided to post a picture of a lighthouse, because I love them. I went to wikimedia.org and pages and pages of glory did I behold, my Chinese element is Water, and just seeing these lighthouses near water made me feel better. This is why I love the internets.
I luvs the baby cosplay, including this TARDIS onesie and this baby TARDIS sitting there looking for all the world like she’d rather be doing anything else. Ah, Pinterest, how I love thee for introducing me to such things.
Mostly to pop up on the internets this week are a bunch of Fahn-cy TARDIS dresses. I love how creative people are. I think it is amazing. One of my favorites is the Steampunk one. The gadgets are really cool and I like that they fit the theme of her dress and the sonic screwdriver. I also really like the highly posh velvet one. All velvet, all TARDIS FTW! I first saw the TARDIS console dress that looks like a jelly fish on The Mary Sue, but then Alisa sent me a link to a tumblr which has more pictures! I really like the collar! Thanks Alisa!
Not a Burger Stand in Burbank, CA has a sign outside their establishment which lets customers know that if they order like a particular popular character they will get 10% off their meal. Recently imitating a Dalek would get you that discount. I like that the chalk board not only says what the discount is, but has a lovely illustration of the character (Dalek in this case) too.
Check out this cutesy quiz about science and learn that it’s OK to be smart. I did OK, not perfectly. But at the time I took it I was really sick from un-diagnosed strep throat, so my brain was a little fuzzy.
SF Signal asked their readers to name their favorite SF websites, podcasts, publishers, book bloggers, and comics. Elizabeth Campbell mentioned Book Store Book Blogger Connection which was founded by Little Red Reviewer and which I have participated in. She lists those some bloggers who participate in Book Store Book Blogger Connection and during the podcast episode, SF Signal mentions Absurdly Nerdly at 47:40, though he totally butchers the name of my blog the first time. Also mentioned are Books Without any Pictures, Nashville Bookworm and The Book Smugglers, some book bloggers I follow because they have excellent reviews.
Want to see a ballerina Hulk? Of course you do.
So apparently, there is a series about WereHEDGEHOGS!!! I think I may have to see if I can track one down and read it. Because, What. The What?
Did you know that some background, distracting, noise can actually up creativity? I think it’s because the brain has to concentrate on ignoring it and that takes up the thinking-about-cats-on-the-internets part of the brain. You can now listen to a rainy cafe to help get you in the mood to concentrate, create, write, or blog. I think it is awesome!
Remember my review of that webseries Jane Eyre? Well, I’m obsessed with it. I think it is well written, quirky, and a delight. Plus, the creators are really cool and they’ve actually made a website for their fictional Thornfield Aluminum Exports company. Jane also has a twitter account and a tumblr. Totally cool.
A new Piano Cosplay has popped up. This time it’s all Batman and she is in a Catwoman costume. And looking mighty fine. You are welcome.
Bill Nye the Science Guy trades quips with Chris Hardwick while teaching the latter to tie a bow-tie. I really am quite in love with Bill Nye after watching the video. 1) Because bow-ties are awesome and 2) Because he totally makes up words, something I do ALL THE TIME! Subscribe to the Nerdist channel, they have other cool things.
Firefly crack down by Fox on selling Jayne Hat’s on Etsy. Big surprise. [Note the sarcasm.]
I found these tiny houses in trees. It’s totally photoshopped, but in my imaginary world it isn’t. And I live in one of them. With a blue door.
Check out this eyeful of art. Literally, Eye Art. I think it is gorgeous!
Probably most of you have seen Dove’s recent beauty sketches ad. Here is my two cents worth, It’s an ad. For a beauty product company. Of course it is going to be about beauty. It’s an ad, it is going to be dramatic, and seem unrealistic. It’s a story they are telling. It’s an ad. People are upset because of course we are still talking about women’s beauty as being what they are worth. But I don’t think that is the actual message, I think people like to be negative whenever possible. I think that Dove was trying to show that sometimes how we see ourselves isn’t always in the best light. Sometimes the way other people look at us can give us insight into our own lives and we take from that what we will. Personally, I like this ad.
Tattoo of a TARDIS and some Daleks. This tattoo is still a little pink, which means to me that it is new. I wonder if the person is going to get it colored. That could be really cool.
This TARDIS pair of shoes is super cute, kind of every day wear, which is what I like my geekery wear to be like. They would go well with the TARDIS poodle skirt from last week. Maybe get the coloring on the shoes to match. Plus, they are only 27 dollars, which isn’t bad. [via] On the other end of the spectrum is this TARDIS ballroom dress. Oooh, fahn-cee. I do like the red converse sneakers, they add a whimsical touch to the outfit. [via]
If every day TARDIS wear is not enough Doctor Who in your life, you can always create a Doctor Who inspired wedding. I like that it has tasteful touches of Doctor Who while still being sweet and elegant. Her dress is just gorgeous. I love the blue windows, excellent decoration. [via]
Outline embroidery of the recent Doctor’s and a unique signature unto that particular doctor. And the TARDIS! I see things like that and think, “I could do that!” Of course, I never will. The TARDIS scarf took me long enough!
A wonderful Gallifreyan Cuff with swirls of TARDIS blue. I do really like this cuff. I like the coloring, the placement, and the simplicity of it.
And this lovely illustration Dalekman, a mash-up of Doctor Who Asylum of the Daleks and that wonderful Disney short Paperman. The coloring is spectacular, the expressions on the Doctor and Oswin’s faces are wonderful. Just. I love the internets some times. The artist has some more wonderful illustrations of Doctor Who inspired digital paintings. They make for a lovely viewing on a rainy morning after your phone has woken you up at 4 a.m. to tell you that there is a flash flood warning in your area. (True story.) [via]
Doctor Who has started up again, so hopefully we all wont be in suspense much longer as to Oswin’s origins. Oh, who am I kidding, this is Moffat, we’ll be in suspense for years. But until any of them are confirmed, it is always fun to read other people’s theories even when I get lost after point 3.
Starry Night and the TARDIS. Minimalistic and pretty. I like it.
The Doctor has a Facebook page, this changes everything.
So I discovered this giveaway thingy for bras at True & Co because I watch Vaginal Fantasy and follow Veronica on twitter and all you have to do is tweet out a comment about your ideal bra. Not only did they reply but now I’m trying to figure out if I can make one.
Costumes on Doctor Who, because the Doctor is getting more dapper. [via TARDIS News]
I honestly came up with this whole posting because I saw this picture on Pinterest of Ron Swanson as Batman and my jaw dropped. Then I figured out that the whole crew was done up as the Justice League and I laughed very quietly to myself in a room full of people. [via Pinterest]
If Batman were a househusband he might wear this Batman apron, with Batman nails, but only as long as he is also making these Batman cupcakes. Yum! I may need to visit Donut Boyfriend today, I’m craving sweets. [via, via, via]
And check out this gorgeous Batman dress. I loves it. Though I would take off the bows, because. What? I like the lacing on the sides, super cool. The site has pics and links to other cool clothing for women that aren’t just t’s with logos. [via Pinterest]
And then my boyfriend posted this on my Facebook wall, and I just had to share. Batman is definitely a troll. Sorry if you are a huge Superman fan, but maybe just skip this post all together then. The artist is Daniel Picard and he does some really cool digital manipulated toy photography.
And because I already spent the time doctoring him up…
I found a Tim Burtoesque Doctor Who The Nightmare Before Christmas Special, on Brian of Morbius, is cool and creepy. However, This t-shirt of a Weeping Angel is just weird. I think if someone did that in front of me I would laugh and go, Um, OK. And probably walk away while they were trying to get the shirt back off their head.
The TARDIS has shown up in several places this week disguised as a dress. A 1940′s poodle skirt version showed up on Pinterest. A ruffled version with a TARDIS tie can be purchased on Etsy. Or if you want more of a long t-shirt with leggings look, this screen printed dress would be a good idea. And finally via ThinkGeek this really cool full bustled TARDIS gown with a riding hood appeared. Honestly, this is by far my favorite TARDIS dress I have EVER seen. I. Want. To. Go. To. There. (It’s only $500.)
Of course if you are going to wear the TARDIS as a dress, the perfect shoe is necessary to go with your Doctor Who outfit. I like this particular TARDIS heel, but my friend Sara prefers this one. Either way you can be totally decked out in TARDISes, how awesome is that?!
And finally, the TARDIS landed at a church.
