12 Days of Nerdy Entrepreneurs – Her Universe

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!

12 Days of Nerdy Entrepreneurs – RockLove Jewelry

RockLove Jewelry is basically my jeweler. And by “my” I mean, practically every piece I wear daily, Allison made. Back in 2011, at our first NYCC, we stumbled upon Rock Love Jewelry’s booth and I fell in love. At that time, none of the nerdy collections had been made. I fell in love with a tiny pistol on a small ball chain and was hooked. The next year I bought the White Queen from her Chess collection. The next year, an Arrow Ring and pair of earrings. And so on and so on.

If you have a nerd who loves jewelry, Rock Love likely has something for them. From Star Trek to Outlander to Lord of the Rings, you are bound to find something to tickle your nerdy fancy.

Kate Mulgrew: Commanding The Free Library of Philadelphia

A few weeks back I posted my reaction/review to Kate Mulgrew’s NY Times best selling memoir ‘Born With Teeth.’ Last night, the Free Library of Philadelphia hosted a book signing and talk back with Kate to promote the book and give us all a bit of inflection to go along with her words. She read three selected passages from her book before making us all roar with laughter for another 35 minutes of questions.
