Full disclosure, I am a lover of fairytales and their retellings. I have read THOUSANDS of versions of them. There is something so interesting to me about taking the same old story we know and love and twisting it into something new. Sometimes the results are wonderful, other times, not so much.
I had heard about Geekerella by Ashley Poston back when it came out last April, but hadn’t had a chance to pick myself up a copy. Then, while staying with one of my best friends, I noticed it on her bookshelf, and being the AMAZING person she is, she gave me the go ahead to raid her bookshelves whenever I like. Clearly this was one of the first one I pilfered. Click below for my thoughts.
Recently we were asked to take a look at the second installment of the Geek-Girl mini series published by Markosia. A comic about an awesome college student who gets magical powers and becomes a superhero, is totally up our alley and so we were super excited to take a look.

On one of my weekly trips to the comic shop, I noticed a copy of The Secret Loves of Geek Girls. A quick glance at the list of contributors and I knew I had to bring it home. Click below for more.
There is no greater collection of nerdy lady clothing than Her Universe. And what an appropriate name for it. Her Universe is the vision of Ashley Eckstein. She founded the company in 2009 and suddenly lady nerds had something more than female-cut tees to wear to flaunt their nerd and flaunt it proud.

With licensing from franchises such at Star Wars, Star Trek, Marvel, Doctor Who and Transformers, Her Universe creates amazing apparel and accessories for the nerd girl in your life. Recently, the ladies of Its All Geek To Me sported the famed Iron Man Bomber Jacket at NYCC 2015 as Howard’s Angels. The jacket is both amazingly comfortable and such a fabulous nerd piece.
A dream of mine is to be able to be part of the Her Universe Fashion Show that happens San Diego Comic Con. The jackets that we are wearing above were designed by one of the winners in collaboration with Her Universe an Hot Topic. Several amazingly talented cosplayers and fashion designers have been showcased in this fashion show. Consider it added to the bucket list!
