Thursday Threads - D & D (Dungeons & Designs)



I love Living Dead! They are always coming out with new and fabulous stuff for geek girls. Instead of focusing on pop culture, this time they are delving into the depth of adventure and mayhem with these Gamer Class D&D based designs

Start by choosing your class

Archer


Archers are usually associated with the wisdom of nature. Archers tend to be wise, hardy, cunning, and perceptive in addition to being skilled woodsmen. Many are skilled in woodcraft, stealth, wilderness survival, beast-mastery, herbalism, tracking, and sometimes "nature magic" or have a resistance to magic.


Mage 


Mages are considered to be spell casters who wield powerful spells, but are often physically weak as a trade-off. A Mage’s power is based on the arcane.



Barbarian


The Barbarian is a breed of Fighter focused more on damage than defence. Often characterized by wearing less armour, being less civilized, and being able to fly into a berserker rage that increases damage output or allow them to do more damage based on how hurt they are.


Warrior
  

The Warrior is skilled in combat, and can make use of some of the most powerful heavy armour and weaponry in the game. As such, the warrior is a well-rounded physical combatant.


Medic


The medic is a healer. Most medics have powers to heal wounds, protect their allies and sometimes resurrect the dead, as well as summon, manipulate and banish undead.


 Necromancer


Necromancer’s abilities revolve around manipulating the dead, death, the life force and souls for good, evil or neither. Necromancer’s can communicate with the deceased for the purpose of divination, imparting the means to foretell future events or discover hidden knowledge.


Thief 


Thieves usually work in small groups or guilds. Thieves have a stealth ability, allowing them to disappear from sight, often this is combined with attacking an unaware or flanked opponent to inflict high damage.


Now that you've picked a class, it's time to flush out your character. 
These amazing rainmakers actually allow you to customize the back to match your character!
You can pick the name and number you want on the back


Now all you have to do is wait for it to come in before calling your fellow geeks and being whisked away into another fun filled adventure

Tunage Tuesday - Sherlock Parody by The Hillywood Show


The Hillywood Show is at it again. This time, with the help of Patreon, they've made a new video based on BBC's Sherlock.

We all love this high functioning sociopath, but The Hillywood gang make him even better.
Just see for yourself




Sooo sooooo good!

I love them dancing on the stairs


And the fact that they once again brought back Osric Chau, as Moriarty no less, makes me super happy!


check out their tumblr page for all sorts of extras and behind the scenes stuff, you won't regret it

Thursday Threads - Geeky Swimwear


It's the middle of the summer and time is short for new swimwear, but sometimes you just need to own a new bathing suit for that upcoming beach party or day by the pool, or, you know, just to lounge around the house in when the air conditioner isn't working.
I mean, you could do that in a regular bathing suit, but wouldn't it be better if you could cosplay while you lounge?

Here are the best of the new swimwear collections that I could find


Strut your stuff as these DC Superheros and Villains








Poprageous

or relax as your favorite droid, bounty hunter or slave princess














Thinkgeek

Beam me up, Hottie!


loving that these have a high back strap for serious swimming





Chose your space adventure with these N7 and SW space battle bikinis!



So, where will you let your swimsuit cosplay take you?




Thanks to The Kessel Runway for always being a geeky fashion go-to

Tunage Tuesday - Pokemon Parkour And More


Ever wonder what it would be like to live in a Pokemon World?
Pokemon GO has given us a glimpse of that, but walking around with our phones out isn't a true Pokexperience.

I have a feeling it would be much more like this


yes, the people over at Devin Super Tramp really know how to take on the full pokeparticipation

and it's not just Pokeomon they want to do in real life, but Assassin's Creed as well



Another fun real life video game parkour experience is this great video by Dark Pixel



and not so much video game, but awesome none the less is this free running video by Ronnie Street Stunts who just wants to be a real Jedi


Not that any of us can blame these guys for wanting to bring the imaginary into the everyday.
Man, I wish I could parkour like that! But I'm much more on the level of Wheezy Waiter


yup, that's about my level, although I'm not sure I can even run for that long :p

How about you? What's your parkour level?

Thursday Threads - Her Universe Fashion Show 2016






The third annual HER UNIVERSE FASHION SHOW took place Thursday, July 21, at San Diego Comic-Con. Host and Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein wore an original “little block dress” made of LEGO® and designed by 2014 Audience Award winner Andrew MacLaine and brick artist Nathan Sawaya.
27 designers competed with haute couture designs inspired by pop culture stalwarts such as Star Wars, DC, Marvel, Harry Potter, Mad Max: Fury Road, Game of Thrones, Pokémon, Doctor Who, Sailor Moon, Labyrinth, Supernatural, 28 Days Later, Wall-E and Red Dragon / Silence of the Lambs.
The finale of THE HER UNIVERSE FASHION SHOW docuseries, which was filmed last night, will be available on Comic-Con HQ on Thursday, July 28. That same day, voting will open on HerUniverse.com to allow viewers at home to choose a third winner for the series. Comic-Con HQ is available at Comic-ConHQ.com, on iOS and Android devices, Amazon and Roku.
Fast Facts about Ashley’s dress: with a design inspired by a sketch of Star Wars: The Clone Wars character Ahsoka Tano created by Dave Filoni, the dress was made of more than 10,000 bricks and weighed in at 25 pounds!


It's back again and I'm so excited! I wait all year for this wonderful event! Last year there was almost no information to be had and hardly a picture to be seen! Not this year! This year is extra special! 
This year all the pictures are there and waiting, because this year, they want YOU to help pick the 3rd winner! That's right, you get to vote on your favorite designs!
