And since today is Who Day it’s only appropriate to have an outfit post inspired by the 11th Doctor (who happens to be my favorite)! I actually wore this on my first official day at my new job (secret cosplay at work FTW). That was a couple weeks ago, but I didn’t have time to snap any selfies so I had to wait for my photographer (a.k.a. my boyfriend a.k.a. Tim <– in case you’re new to Le Fancy Geek) to get back into town and do a proper shoot.
Ever since Matt Smith made his debut on the show I’d been thinking of ways to interpret his 11th Doctor’s outfit into an outfit I can wear out and about. The black Dirty Laundry boots were purchased at Ross a couple years ago specifically because they kind of reminded me of the 11th Doctor, and I also thought they would go with my Hogwarts school girl outfit (worn here). Rather than wearing a collared shirt and bow tie, I opted for a pussy bow blouse in the same hue as the burgundy bow tie the 11th Doctor wore for most of his debut season (or series, as the Europeans say). I had been looking for one for awhile and found this one by Allen B. at JCPenney last year. I even did a little happy dance when I stumbled upon it! My tweed blazer was a thrift store find from a couple years ago and, of course, I got it because it reminded me of the Doctor! Why else would I get it, really? And you can’t really tell, but the blazer actually has some gold thread so it gives off a little sparkly sheen like regeneration residue! Sorry to those who have no idea what gibberish I’m talking about. Long-time readers and people who know me in general know that I love me some Doctor Who and am absolutely craycray aboot it and mention the show quite a bit on my blog! >^__^<
Whether or not you’re a fan of Doctor Who, I hope you have a happy Saturday!

So y’know how on Monday I announced that I was going to start a new series on here called Curator’s Corner? Well, in today’s outfit post I’m giving you guys a sneak peek for the first artist that I’ll be featuring! The lovely art nouveau design of Princess Peach (from Super Mario Bros. fame) on my t-shirt is by the super awesome and über talented Megan Lara. I got it a couple of years ago on TeeFury and have been hooked on her work since then. She actually just had her art nouveau design of Hermione Granger entitled “The Brightest With of Her Age” up on TeeFury last night. I had to snatch that one as well since TeeFury only sells one t-shirt design a day — and once it’s gone, it’s gone.
I’ll be posting a bunch of links on where to find/buy her art and t-shirts tomorrow, so stayed tuned for that! 🙂
I’m not a huge gamer, but I did love my NES growing up. And of course I loved Princess Peach (a.k.a. Princess Toadstool). It was only natural that I instantly fell in love with Megan’s “Peach Nouveau” design once I saw it on the interwebz — it’s fancy and geeky!
I’d gush about her work some more, but I’ll save that for tomorrow’s post.
I’m super excited to tell you all about the D.I.Y. tutorial on how to make your very own Adipose sweater I created! It can be found on a super nifty blog called GadChick 🙂
In case you’re wondering what an Adipose is, it’s an Intergalactic creature that’s basically composed of fat. That sounds super gross, but they’re soooo cute! They appear in the Doctor Who episode “Partners in Crime,” which is super adorbz BTW and is one of my favorite DW episodes because Donna Noble (played by Catherine Tate) RULES.
Have you ever felt that something was made specifically for you and you alone? That’s basically how I felt when I saw Rob Wood’s Doctor Pooh t-shirt design on a blustery day in March. Tim and I watched The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and proceeded to have a Doctor Who marathon, and while browsing the Doctor Who subreddit (on Reddit) Tim saw this Doctor Who x Winnie the Pooh design that was up for voting on some site called Qwertee (it’s like TeeFury and RIPT where one design is sold for 24 hours and gone forever the next day, only it’s based in the Europe). I couldn’t stop staring at it. And how serendipitous was it that we found it the day we watched Winnie the Pooh AND Doctor Who?!
I Googled “Doctor Pooh shirt” to see if there were any other sites that might be selling it for I didn’t want to have to wait for Qrwtee to possibly print the shirt, and even if they did, I didn’t want to pay for international shipping either. And alas! I found it on RedBubble! I drooled over it for MONTHS. I finally ordered a shirt in June hoping that it would come in time for my Disneyland trip. My goal was take a picture with Pooh Bear while wearing it, and that goal still remains as I didn’t get the shirt in time. Oh bother!
The fun thing about ordering shirts on RedBubble is that you pick whatever style and color you want the shirt in. When I saw that there was a v-neck option, I jumped all over that shiz! You can even order a design on a hoodie. The only thing is that they’re a bit pricey, but SO WORTH IT. I mean, look at my Doctor Pooh shirt. IT’S AMAZING and I am utterly happy about it.
There’s all kinds of nerdtastic goodies on RedBubble, so if you love Doctor Who, Star Wars, Scott Pilgrim, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, or just about anything else that goes along with the nerd realm, then you should definitely check out RedBubble. 😀
