Geek Gear by Tomboy Togs

Tomboy Togs Has Geeks Covered

I can’t get enough geek gear, and recently I needed a quick, easy and clever costume for a Halloween concert. I wanted to be Harry Potter (natch), but I didn’t want to wear the full cloak and tie, because under the stage lights — whew! — it gets hot. Plus, I didn’t want to wear […]

Heat Changing Mugs

31+ Heat Changing Mugs for Geeks

Heat changing mugs are incredibly cool, and the perfect way to celebrate the fandom that makes you geek out. What are heat changing mugs? The effect is a lot like those pens from the ’70s, the ones that displayed a perfectly normal woman, until you tipped the pen. Then her clothes would disappear. But, heat changing mugs […]

Harry Potter Decals on Etsy

Harry Potter Decals and Fun Decorations

I love adding Harry Potter decals to my car, my computer, my Kindle, just about everything. Merlin knows that there is a hippogriff-sized amount of Harry Potter merchandise available at HarryPottershop.com. But as an avid fan, I have been frustrated many times when I can’t find something Harry Potter-related for a device, or something that isn’t […]

Sneaky Geek T-shirts Are My Favorite

I have loved sneaky geek t-shirts since the late ’90s, when I bought a Sunnydale High t-shirt. If you know what Sunnydale High is, then you know of which fandom I speak. If, however, you’re mystified, then that sneaky geek t-shirt did its job. (I’ll put you out of your misery. Sunnydale High was the […]

9 Must-Own Suicide Squad Pops

Funko’s Pop! Vinyl figures are absolutely adorable and totally collectible. The Suicide Squad Pops are no exception. Pops (which are not bobbleheads, but based on the same design concept) have huge heads for their bodies, much like babies. Their heads are shaped like rounded blocks and take up about half of their full size. Their eyes […]

Fangirl Subscription Box

Fangirl Subscription Box is Finally Here

A fangirl subscription box isn’t a requirement. I mean, a woman could order any geek subscription box — Loot Crate or Nerd Block or My Geek Box or Pop in a Box — and it would fit the bill for geek gear. But there are times when a fangirl wants to be a little more girlie, maybe with a […]

‘Game of Thrones’ Merchandise for Die-Hard Fans

Game of Thrones merchandise is a way to let fans show their kingdom pride. Some fans have no sense of dignity when it comes to letting their freak flag fly. There’s a subtle difference between the fan walks into fye and buys a Game of Thrones t-shirt that has every cast member’s face painted in a collage across the front, […]

Lego Minifigures Series 15

Lego Minifigures Series 15

2016 started off with collectable Lego minifigures Series 15. It comes in a rather noticeable orange bag. In contrast to Series 14, which concentrated on monsters and legends, this new collection of 17 little people (plus two animals, all in 16 different bags) is a really mixed bunch for the popular theme. So, without further ado, […]

Lego Minifigures – the 14th Series

Okay, here’s my grudge up-front … Lego‘s splendid Series 14 of special minifigures should really have been Series 13. Because it would have been spookier. But that apart, the issue of 16 new figures based on legends and tall tales could not have been better timed. Not only are they in the shops just in […]

Legoi Scoioby-Doo "Mystery Plane Adventure"

Build the Scooby-Doo “Mystery Plane Adventures” Lego Set

It is small wonder that the second Lego set on the Scooby-Doo theme, “Mystery Plane Adventures”, features an aeroplane. When you hear the town name Billund (as in Billund, Denmark), what springs to mind? Yes, this is the home of Lego, and the original Legoland was built here. And there is one of Denmark’s busiest […]

Build “The Mystery Machine”, a Scooby-Doo Lego Set

If there is Lego set based on Scooby-Doo that you really should have, it is the medium-sized “The Mystery Machine” – which features the iconic Mystery Machine, a van-based vehicle those meddling kids use as their transport and operations centre. Stuffed with gadgets for hunting ghosts and ghouls (and preparing Scooby snacks). And quite well […]

The ‘Outlander’ Store is Now Open!

I’m an obsessive fan. It’s very difficult for me to control myself when it comes to collecting stuff related to my favorite things, like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and (sigh) Outlander. Sony Pictures opened an online store that is bursting with more Outlander merchandise than a corset full of Claire. You can buy anything […]
