So, you've got a geek girl in your life. Congratulations. Now what? The holidays are fast approaching and everyone likes a well thought-out gift. But maybe you're not a geek yourself and aren't sure what being a "geek girl" actually means. Don't fret, a happy little helper named Geek Girl Diva has got you covered.
Friend to TheNerdyBird.com and all-around cool chick, Geek Girl Diva works for a company called Entertainment Earth. They sell all sorts of pop culture/geek items, most of which I'd love to own. I try my hardest to avoid tempting links to products she posts on Twitter but 9 times out of 10 I fail. GGD recently put together a very special section on the EE website:
It seems that, occasionally, people forget that geeks come in all shapes, sizes, types, and genders. So, we decided to dedicate some space to the Geek Girls out there. We asked for your feedback on the types of items you liked, and you responded. (Boy, DID you!) Based on your input and a few additions from our own in-house Geek Girl Diva, Entertainment Earth proudly presents...A section made by Geek Girls for Geek Girls.
And here it is. Now, you can easily guess that a geek girl enjoys things like Harry Potter or Buffy the Vampire Slayer but their likes are much broader than that. Would you have ever guessed that a geek girl would go for something like the Mystic Seer Bobblehead pictured above? Well guess what? They would. And by "they" I mean me. "Nick of Time" is one of my all-time favorite Twilight Zone episodes and I've ALWAYS wanted one of those fortune telling machines. I'm going to be very upset if I don't get one for Christmas this year.
Of course the special section isn't just for those buying gifts for geek girls, it's for the girls to splurge a little on themselves too. How about that Black Canary statue or TARDIS USB hub you've been wanting so badly? Or maybe it's time you finally picked up that Cthulhu hand puppet you've been itching to slip on? What I appreciate most about this dedicated Geek Girl section is the variety. Having an Edward Cullen Barbie Doll on the same list as a Duncan MacLeod replica sword makes me feel all warm inside. In more than one way.
Anyway, go check it out and tell 'em The Nerdy Bird sent ya. I won't get anything for it but it's always nice to say hello. :)
