ASSEMBLE! MARVEL’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out on May 1st, which means you only have a week to plan an epic viewing party. Get your friends together, watch the first Avengers (and the other Marvel movies–I’d recommend Thor and the Iron Mans myself!) and get prepped for the newest addition to the Marvel collection.
I planned such a party this past week. There were food, drink, activities, prizes, and of course, movies. Thanks to Collective Bias, I was able to hit up my local Walmart and grab everything I needed for the party. (You can see everything they have and more at walmart.com/avengers.) I might have had a bit too much fun finding all of the cool Avengers stuff…
I’ve loved We Love Fine for a while (every single person I’ve met that works there is so incredibly sweet. AND their stuff is amazing!), but I’ve been loving them even more lately. In addition to cute new dresses, sweaters, and shirts, they’ve created some of the coolest leggings I’ve seen in a while. Their Kawaii Marvel and Star Wars leggings are too cute for words, and are only $26.50 each. The Dalek leggings (with a giant EXTERMINATE down one leg) are bad-ass.
I haven’t purchased fun leggings like these before because I’m afraid they won’t be long enough (I have fairly long legs) and I don’t know what to wear with them. Luckily, We Love Fine is holding a Google Hangout tomorrow to talk leggings with a bunch of amazing geeky women. I’ll be tuning in at 2pm Pacific to get some questions answered and convince myself I need a pair of these leggings. If I’m lucky, I may even win one of the pairs they’ll be giving out! Find out more about the hangout here, and let me know if you’ll be joining!
You can find all of We Love Fine’s leggings here. Do you have geeky leggings? How do you wear/style them?
It’s come to this. It’s the middle of Comic-Con. I’m tired. I’ve given up on getting my hair to cooperate in the humidity. I’ve wondered why I even thought bringing heels would be a good idea. But, I’ve got panels to attend, the cast of Being Human to interview, and the box office for Thrilling Adventure Hour to work. I thought today would be a great time to pull out a classic look. I wore a “Seattle in the Winter” version of this at Emerald City Comicon, and now it’s San Diego’s turn. (Big thanks to my roommate Rachael who got suckered into taking photos of me again!)

Fab.com has these fantastic Marvel lamps on sale. They’d be a perfectly geeky statement piece on a side table in a living room, or as the coolest bedroom nightstand lamp possible. I love that men and women both are featured in the various designs, and the price-point makes me want to get one for every room.
Where would you put one of these lamps?

Fashion and beauty blogs are extremely popular, but it’s hard to find ones that focus exclusively on geek-themed trends. These two are blogs that I keep going back to–their content is cute, geeky, and super fun!
Makeup by Siryn features intricate and beautiful makeup applications inspired by geeky characters–most often heroes and villains. I don’t have faith that I could recreate the looks as beautifully, but I love getting inspired. She helps me realize that I can go beyond my “barely even there” makeup look!
Looking-Marvelous takes your favorite Marvel characters and created totally wearable outfits based on them. You can channel your inner geek AND look cute! She takes requests, so if you have a black tie event coming up and you want to look just like Iron Man, she can help you make it happen.

Show everyone you have the power of Thor when you open their beers with a replica of Mjolnir, Thor’s hammer. I sincerely hope it prevents you from lifting it after you’ve had too much to drink.
Hammer of Thor Bottle Opener, on sale for $14.99 at ThinkGeek.com.
