Goggles, armor and wings: Gifts for nerdy fashionistas – GeekOut - CNN.com Blogs | #nerdalert | Scoop.it

You’re wandering through the mall, intent on spreading holiday cheer and looking for gifts that suit the subculture nerds in your life. The last friend on your list without a check next to their name wears goggles in public and makes a show of checking their pocket watch as moving cogs and wheels adorn their Victorian era suit.

 

Or perhaps they roll on thick black eyeliner, hammer their own swords in the backyard on Sundays or give anime characters a run for their money by bringing impeccable costumes to life.

 

So what do you buy for your steampunk, Goth, SCA member or cosplayer friend this holiday season? Luckily, you’ve tuned into the Geek Out shopping wavelength.

'X-Men,' 'Pushing Daisies' masterminds to tackle 'The Munsters' – GeekOut - CNN.com Blogs

'X-Men,' 'Pushing Daisies' masterminds to tackle 'The Munsters' – GeekOut - CNN.com Blogs | #nerdalert | Scoop.it
The much-discussed remake of the 1960s sitcom "The Munsters" (about a family of monsters, and their "normal" niece, Marilyn) is moving forward at NBC, with Bryan Singer, director of the first two "X-Men" movies, now on board to produce the show and direct its pilot episode.

 

Bryan Fuller, best known for creating the beloved short-lived series "Pushing Daisies," and his work on "Heroes," confirmed the news on Twitter. Fuller will be heading up the rebooted "Munsters" (as opposed to the previous late 1980s/early '90s update).

 

With both Bryans' pedigrees (one dealing with mutants, and another with unusual, but brilliantly written, and visually compelling concepts), this is sure to make "The Munsters" one of the most anticipated series of next year.

His backpack’s got jets. He’s Boba (the Fett). With this sweet lunch box, I wouldn’t be worried about people trying to steal your lunch. I’d be more concerned with people stealing what’s holding your food.

Something tells me the Ewoks may have gone over better if the forest moon of Endor (and all of its denizens) were made out of gingerbread and a metric ton of fondant.
