Have strong feelings for both Miranda Lawson and Tali’Zorah in Mass Effect 2? You don’t have to choose between them because ThinkGeek has new cosplay hoodies for each character. The Tali design features a beautiful drape-over hood that mimics the character’s design in the game, and the Miranda hoodie features the hexagon futuristic print of the character’s bodysuit.

beard baubles 1

If your facial hair isn’t in the holiday spirit, Beard Baubles may be the solution. The shiny accessories were designed by London ad agency Grey London. Employees of the agency, Mike Kennedy and Pauline Ashford, were given the job of coming up with something different for the company Christmas card, and it looks like they succeeded.

The proceeds of the beard decorations go a charity called Beard Season (they raise awareness about melanoma), and when the founder of the charity shared the above photo on Instragram, everyone started placing orders. So many people became interested that Grey London is now sold out of the wacky accessory. They’re hoping to add more stock before the holiday.

who turned out the lights

Silence In The Library is one of my very favorite Doctor Who episodes, but it’s also one of the episodes that freaks me out the most because of this very thing.

If you want to scare me badly enough to make me run away, follow me in a zombie walk and just say “Hey, who turned out the lights?” in a creepy monotone. Works like a charm.

This design has the added benefit of being glow in the dark, so you can freak people out by turning out the lights and then following them around. Because you’re evil and you know you’ll do it.

hp infinity scarf

I can’t get over how cute this Harry Potter scarf by Etsy seller Nerd Alert Creations is. The cotton design features several symbols from the series including the Dark Mark, the Deathly Hallows symbol, the Knight Bus, the lightning scar, a Death Eater mask, and more. The cartoon-y design and bright colors aren’t necessarily what you think of when it comes to Harry Potter, but it totally works.

squirrel girl cosplay

Everyone celebrates the holidays, even Squirrel Girl! We’ve seen cosplayer Galacticat’s take on the regular Squirrel Girl costume and this festive outfit was inspired by the Great Lakes Avengers Christmas Special cover. I love it.

imperial evolution

There’s been a lot of talk about the new Stormtrooper helmet design in the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, but as this t-shirt design by Tom Hodges shows, it’s not the first time the helmet has undergone an evolution.

This shirt has just been added to our Nerd Approved / Fashionably Geek merch store and is just $14 for a limited time.

Say hello to the Crown Princess of Crime. Cosplayer Dark Incognito / HydraEvil’s crossplay take on the Joker is pretty amazing. I love that she went with an old school, classic version of the Joker–it honestly brings back memories of watching Batman: The Animated Series as a kid.

It’s no secret that Stephen Colbert is a huge Tolkien nerd. In fact, he’s such a fan that Peter Jackson gave him a cameo in Desolation of Smaug. Colbert wrote an article about the films for Entertainment Weekly and got to play dress-up, turning himself into Bilbo, Gandalf, and Legolas. He says in the article:

“Just me and a few of my friends got together to play dress-?up. Lucky for me, my ‘friends’ are the wardrobe department for The Hobbit. The original costumes and wigs were flown in from New Zealand just for me. They didn’t even fly the costumes out of New Zealand for the actors! They had to wear them there!”

Colbert also talked about why the books were so important to him growing up:

“Tolkien’s work has been a lifelong haven for me—truly a light in dark places when all other lights went out… For an awkward teenager, Middle-earth was a world I could escape to. Peter Jackson’s Middle-earth also gave me a world to escape to, but by the time his films came out, I was rich and famous and didn’t really want to escape my life anymore. Still, great movies.”

By the looks of these pictures, we’d say he wants to escape just a little bit.
