The Geeky Hostess is on Tumblr!

So, I finally did it. I started using my Tumblr account. I’m scared and excited. I have no idea what I’m doing.

You can find me here: geekyhostess.tumblr.com

The tumblr account is going to be similar to my Twitter account: my personal account under the Geeky Hostess name. Which means you’ll find lots of geekery and parties and cupcakes and geek fashion, but you’ll also find random nonsense that made me want to click on the arrow button thing which I believe is reblog. I’m learning, guys.

Are you on Tumblr? Any accounts I need to follow? Any tips for me? I’m sure you’ll be hearing more from me and my Tumblr account as I learn more about it!

Friday Favorites: July 26

Friday Faves 7-26

This may be the post-SDCC Friday Favorites, but I’m going to try to keep some of my SDCC fave finds for other individual posts. So here are some of my fave things outside of San Diego!

Favorite Kickstarter: Broodhollow
If you haven’t read the web comic Broodhollow, what are you even doing here, just go there now¬†and read it all. When you’re done, head on over to the Kickstarter page and buy yourself a book. It’s already been ridiculously successful and there’s till 18 days left. I’m thrilled to see so much support for this awesome comic!

Other Favorite Kickstarter: Forge of Honor
Plush swords, shields, and animals that help protect your child from monsters in their room and encourage the use of their imaginations. I’m in love. Am I too old to get this for myself? Visit their Kickstarter page.

 Favorite Makeup: Eyeko Eyeliner
I received Eyeko Eyeliner in a Birchbox a while back and absolutely loved it. It’s a liquid eyeliner that’s easy to use, doesn’t smudge, and lasts forever. I just ran out and tried a few other less expensive options, and wasn’t happy with anything. It’s worth the $16. You can find it at Sephora.

Favorite Tumblr: Disney Bound
As I’m prepping for a Vidcon/Disneyland trip with the Job Hunters cast/crew, I suggested we all “Disneybound” while we’re at the park. (Is that a verb? I’m gonna make it a verb.) Anyway, you dress up in outfits inspired by Disney characters. There will be a whole post on it later, but coming up with suggestions for everyone and finding the outfits has been so much fun! Check out the tumblr that started it all for inspiration.

What are some of your favorite things from the past week?

Mass Effect Mixer

The owner of the Derlaine Art Tumblr has the best boyfriend in the world–he modded their Nerf gun and Kitchen Aid Mixer to fit in the Mass Effect world. While the gun is obviously painted (most likely with a stencil), the mixer looks like it may be decorated with decals. Want to decorate yours? Use electrical tape for nice clean lines that won’t permanently damage your mixer.

Have you modded a household item? Tell us about it in the comments, or better yet, email a pic to tara@geekyhostess.com and it may end up in a post itself!
