Season 3 of Game of Thrones is here and being awesome! The continued popularity and success of the HBO series’ adaptation of the Song of Ice and Fire books means we continue to get fantastic merchandise for book and TV fans to enjoy.
Whether it’s jewelry, home/office decor, clothing, or even makeup, GoT merchandise just gets better! We’ve rounded up our current favorites to be found from both fanmade and licensed sources.
Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to get back to real life. In addition to that, for those of us in the northern hemisphere, it’s time to start bulking up our winter wardrobe. Even here in Southern California, we’ve been getting some pretty chilly temperatures, so I’ve been on the look out for warmer alternatives.

As we’ve discussed before, adding a little something to your nails is a great way to show off your geeky pride. While we’ve covered nail polish in a few posts, like this one or this one, we haven’t taken a good look at what’s available in terms of nail decals or fake nail sets. What’s great about these is they’re pretty quick to apply and an easy way to dress up your outfit. Check out our finds below!
We’ll start off with two designs currently available at Thinkgeek. Click photos for direct product links.
One of my favorite way to make my outfits a little more geek chic is including a great piece of jewelry. It could be unstated or the focus of the outfit. While many of these may not be available in time for the holidays, you might be able to snag a piece or two in time to add to your New Years outfit. Or, you could just wear them everyday too!
Hot Topic’s merchandise changes fairly frequently, but they have some fun pieces right now at very reasonable prices.

We’re super excited for the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey later this week, so what better way to show that excitement than share some fun geek chic items. From jewelry, to shirts, to home items, there’s a wide variety of stuff to check out!
I really wanted to put together a look that could work as a casual outfit or as something a bit more dressy. I also thought that my JumpFromPaper purse would look great with a Batman inspired outfit.
So channeling a little bit of Adam West, this outfit features a vintage shirt, a DIY fascinator, and a fun 2d purse.
With just a few days until Thanksgiving, my favorite time of the year is quickly approaching, Christmas decorating! I usually try to hold off until after Thanksgiving, but figured it wouldn’t hurt to list some of the great geeky holiday finds I’ve come across. Check them out below!
The place with probably the best all around decor is Thinkgeek. Ranging from wreaths to stockings, here are a few of my favorite picks.

It feels like Christmas is coming earlier every year, as far as the stores are concerned. But, it is never too early to get your gift situation figured out for friends and family as early as possible. Today’s post covers some of our top recommendations for kitchen and home gifts to give to those geeks around you. A geek home, is a happy home! And, you know, a just plain awesome home.
While a lot of our focus is often fashion based, we do, from time to time, sneak in some items geared at sprucing up your home. With many stores carrying college items, I’ve gotten a slight case of nesting. (Speaking of, although not geeky, I picked up these pillows from Target and LOVE THEM!) So on that note, I wanted to write a post that’s geared at making your home a little more geek chic!

We wanted to put together a list of great items that have come out for the new Amazing Spider-Man movie. With a collection of both licensed and handmade items, you’ll be hard pressed to find something you don’t like! We’ve collected some of our favorites below.
