Uber Nerd Update

Greetings all!  I meant to post this picture a while back, but have been having computer problems.  I made these as part of what I previously called my Uber Nerd cosplay.  I have since decided to change the name to Geek Supreme.  I like the sound of it better than Uber Nerd.  It just seems to roll off the tongue more easily.  Anyway, I made these using Perler beads.  The mushrooms and star I actually found the patterns for online, but the rupees are my own design.  I combined a couple different ideas for the mushrooms to give them a good feel, color wise.  Also, I used the more translucent beads for the rupees to give them a gemstone-like quality.  Have you ever made anything with Perler beads?  Was it nerdy?  Or have I inspired you?  Whatever your thoughts on this topic, please let me know in the comments below!  Thanks for taking the time!

Uber Geek Cosplay

One of the cosplay original ideas I have is to build an ‘uber geek’ that combines different aspects of multiple fandoms. To that end, I have amassed the following items:

1. Lightsaber – a ForceFX replica of Luke’s lightsaber from Return of the Jedi
2. Comm Badge – a magnet pin replica of a comm badge from Star Trek: The Next Generation
3. Sonic Screwdriver – a decent replica, with lights and sounds, of the Other Doctor’s sonic screwdriver from The Day of the Doctor
4. Wand – a replica of Harry Potter’s wand from the popular book and movie series
5. Colonial Military dog tags – replicas of Colonel Saul Tigh’s dog tags from Battlestar Galactica
5. Ultra Ball – a foam replica of an ultra ball from Pokemon.
6. Diamond Sword – a foam replica of from the popular Minecraft game
7. 4 Star Dragonball – an acrylic replica from one of the best anime shows of all time, Dragonball & Dragonball Z
8. Cap’s Shield – an aluminum replica of Captain America’s shield that I plan to modify slightly

Today, I purchased an addition to the costume: a Jayne hat, from the cult classic Firefly.  As you can see, I’m bridging quite the array of nerd cultures here. If you have any suggestions as to other items I could add to this, please let me know in the comments!

 

*I would like to say a few things about the links, and apologize for not having one for the Cap Shield.  For the most part, I got these items for about the same price as listed on the links.  Some of them even came from the exact link I’ve given above.  However, when I bought the Col Tigh dog tags, they were not nearly that expensive.

Hey, Listen!

I posted this ‘about me’ sort of thing over at Quaintjeremy’s Thoughts. I am starting as a contributor there and felt this an adequate way to verify my nerd credit.  Be sure to check out the the Thoughts for other great nerd postings!

My Editor-In-Chief has asked that I give you all a sort of “about me” blog entry.  Well, here it goes.

I’m 26 years old and have lived in Indiana all my life.  I have been married for nine months to my wonderful wife, who is pregnant with our first child!  Like the EIC, I attended Wabash College.  Unlike the EIC, I do not have a Bachelor of Arts in English.  My degree is in German.  I have never really had any idea what to do with it, as I was not an exceptional German student.  None the less, I have managed to survive pretty well so far.

My nerd credentials are somewhat extensive.  Star Wars was my first science fiction memory and love.  I couldn’t have been much older than 8 when I first saw A New Hope, in its original release edit.  We were over to dinner at…

Hello Internet!

Greetings all!

I would like to begin with the obvious: I am a nerd and proud to be so.  I am completely new to this blog thing, despite being a modern-day 20-something.  I plan to use this page as a way to post my thoughts and share nerd knowledge.  There will be a lot of blogging done for a friend’s page, with the main intent of this page being my personal thoughts.  I will link from my page to all of my posts for the quaintjeremy blog, mostly to have some content on here until I get my own things going.  I will also likely use this as a vehicle to help promote my stepping into the realm of cosplay.  That venture is in its very, very, VERY early stages, and in much need of work. However, it’s something I have considered for some time and I am finally reaching a point where it is possible to attain.

Anyway, stay tuned and enjoy!
