Review: Question Bedtime, the Nerdcore Children's Album by MC Frontalot

I’m going to be up-front from the beginning: I don’t have kids of my own.  In fact, I recently noticed that my maternal instincts kick in more when watching a video of baby bats than when confronted with actual, human children.  I’m sure my mom is proud. My disinterest in motherhood aside, I was a... Read more »

Product Review: Fictitious Fragrances

I often struggle with how outwardly feminine I should be.  The stereotypical geek girl wears glasses and avoids makeup.  I, however, vastly prefer contact lenses.  I wear a full face of makeup every day.  Frankly, I’m surprised my workplace hasn’t reprimanded me for my eyeshadow!  Soooo colorful… Given my affinity for cosmetics AND geekery, I...

Product Review: The Force Collection, Star Wars Nail Polish by Frakker Lacquer

It’s a shame that I’m an anxious nail biter.  Whenever something stresses me out, I chomp my nails right off.  So, when Alyssa from Frakker Lacquer reached out to me for a review, I panicked!  My nails were down to stumps (still are).  Thankfully, I have some lovely friends who were willing to be photographed....

Product Review: The Summer of 199X, Earthbound/Mother 2 Nail Polish by Rainbow Honey

Geek-themed cosmetics can be hit or miss.  Sometimes, it seems like companies just attach unrelated series and character names to products for a sales boost.  Rainbow Honey is refreshing.  Their nail lacquers are clearly created by fangirls, from the perfect Squirtle blue to the exact hues in Rainbow Dash’s mane.  I was asked to test their...

Product Review: Avengers Cologne by JADS International

Mark VII - Iron Man<p> "A pleasant citrus initial smell, but pretty quickly smells like soap."<P>"Citrusy, clean... a little musky, a little metallic.  I bet this would make a guy feel manly."<p>"This reminds me a bit of Old Spice."<P>4/5
As you may know from my Twitter, gentle reader, I’ve been hard at work on cosplay for C2E2.  Tonight, I oh-so-gracefully RUINED my entire Elizabeth jacket with my serger.  I freaked- full on panic attack- so I guess it’s time for a sewing break.  While I decompress, here’s a long-anticipated product review:  Avengers Cologne by...

Product Review: Iron Throne, Ommegang's Game of Thrones Beer

When Brewery Ommegang announced its Iron Throne Blonde Ale, I admit- I rolled my eyes.  I usually don’t go for promotional gimmicks.  However, I’m fond of Ommegang, I watch Game of Thrones, and I really like drinking.  Curiosity won out. I bought my first bottle on its Binny’s release date- 3/14.  I should have written the... Read more »

GCC creates “gluten-free, cruelty-free, vegan” goods.  Many fandoms are celebrated in their collections, including Doctor Who,  The Princess Bride, Portal, Firefly, Game of Thrones, Babylon 5, and more.  I couldn’t resist ordering a few.*...

Product Review: False Nostalgia Scents 'n Sundries

Yesterday was my birthday.  In an effort to silence the age-related sadness, I bought myself some gifts.  False Nostalgia is an etsy store specializing in Firefly/Serenity and other fandom-themed fragrances, lotions, soaps, etc.  Shiny!  Shannon, the shop owner, is a sweetheart who loves feedback.  Her scent list is expansive, and even has some options for...
