geek girl | march 31, 2013

Happy Easter, everyone!

Darren and I have just downloaded the new episode of Doctor Who from iTunes and are about to retire to the living room/dining room/library/home theater (told you our house was small!!) for a little quality time with the TARDIS. I couldn't let the weekend slip away, though, without posting another round of geeky picks for you!

gg march 31

From the top left:

  • Allison Waken posted this super cute idea for a Lego minifig display on her All For The Boys blog.
  • The detail in the fondant work on these Star Wars cupcakes is simply amazing!
  • Fashionably Geek reported on a pair of quit sylish C-3PO and R2-D2 dresses.
  • This incredible Lego Hogwarts castle took a staggering 400,000 bricks to build!
  • You'll almost always find me curled up under a blanket while watching one of my favorite shows, and I just might have to make this TARDIS throw my new snuggly viewing companion.
  • Nerd Approved brings us artwork showing several popular movies and shows reimagined with Muppets. 
  • Angry Birds. Star Wars. Wedding Cake. Need I say more?
  • Hello Kitty is getting her first graphic novel! Check out the details at Gizmodiva.
  • Douglas Adams, late author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, was recently honored with his own Google Doodle. Doctor Who News has the story along with several variations on the image.

In this week's video pick, Stan Lee shares his hilarious thoughts on how Star Wars (and several other movies) should have really ended. His views on the prequels are particularly awesome.
