We love shining a spotlight on geeky businesses in our community! This time we are featuring Justine Mastin of Blue Box Counseling, a company using narrative therapy and geek-centered yoga.
As a small way to celebrate our FIFTH IGGPPCAMP, we collected a bunch of SWAG from San Diego Comic-Con and we want to give it all away! Below are THREE individual swag packs– and you can enter to win one!
We love shining a spotlight on amazing small businesses, and this month we are talking to Tara Magboo, the artist and jeweler behind Adorable Mayhem! Let's get to know her a little more, and then get ready for an adorable giveaway!
For the 5th year in a row, Thursday night at San Diego Comic-Con was taken over by geek couture thanks to the Her Universe Fashion Show. The annual event aims to bring a New York fashion week style event to the convention every year, proving that geek fashion can be high end and that it is here to stay. This year's theme was "Milestones" and the designers certainly delivered some breathtaking pieces to the event. We've got all the looks right here, plus the three winners who will be creating an Avengers-inspired line for Spring 2019 for Hot Topic.
This morning we attended the press conference prior to the Hall H panel for the new series of Doctor Who.
Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) is fun and entertaining but largely stays away from the intensity of the main Avengers sequence without forgetting that larger world's context. It's the first Marvel movie since Infinity War and thankfully we are handed some lighter fare. If you're looking for a summer comic book movie flick with an ass-kicking female hero, this is the movie for you.
Here are IGGPPC, we like to turn the spotlight onto small, geeky businesses, especially those run by women. This week we're checking out FanFlaire, a super rad shop that sells pins and patches for some of our favorite geek loves. Let's get to know a little more about shop owner Sarah and her awesome business!
We've waited 14 years for this film: The Incredibles 2 opens this weekend to about as much anticipation as any Disney/Pixar sequel can have. And while audiences have been waiting over a decade for this one, it seems like Disney has finally decided to go all-in with the Incredible-Family: Disneyland's new "Pixar Pier" opens later this month with the signature featured ride, the "Incredicoaster", occupying a massive footprint on the retooled boardwalk. But enough about that-- let's talk about the movie! And don't worry: this is a spoiler-free zone.
I find Hogwarts Mystery to be an entertaining game, for what it is. You run out of energy quickly, unless you are willing to spend money, but honestly I don't mind games like this that I can play once or twice a day and feel like I'm enjoying them without spending hours of my life staring at my phone. That being said, there isn't anything "new" to it: it's pretty much just a retread, in a mildly interactive way.
Well. That really was something, wasn't it? If you've already seen Avengers: Infinity War, chances are you left the theater at least a little stunned. I was, too, until a few things clicked into place for me, and I want to share my thoughts with you on this. So let's chat about the ramifications of Infinity War, and what it might mean for part 2 coming in 2019.
This week we are excited to share Wash Day, an upcoming slice-of-life comic from writer Jamila Rowser, one of the co-founders of Geek Girl Brunch, Straight Outta Gotham, and more. The Kickstarter for this comic was fully funded in less than 48 hours (WOW!) but you have until May 4th to back it and get some really cool perks! This week we had a chance to chat with Jamila about the comic, what she's working on now, and of course her current geek loves.
And that's what I love about Elhoffer Design-- the commitment to high quality, affordable designer pieces that flatter all kinds of body types, the celebration of lady/femme-nerds, and, I cannot emphasize this enough, the inclusion of functional POCKETS in the designs.
Here at IGGPPC, we love supporting nerdy entrepreneurs and female/femme-empowering small businesses, and introducing you to them as well! And while Jennifer Holmquist (MagicCatJenny) is a familiar face in the IGGPPC community, we wanted to catch up with her about her shop, her creative process, and what she's currently geeking out about. Plus you can win one of her Nerdy Monster plushies-- Iggle! (note: giveaway is US-only)
As a small way to celebrate, we have been collecting SWAG from conventions for the last year (including a LOT from San Diego Comic-Con!) and we want to give it all away! Below are FIVE individual swag packs-- one for each of our 5 years of 5 geek loves!
