30 Days of Nerdy Hair

Day 5: Gabrielle from Xena Warrior Princess

This might be surprising to you, but I never watched Xena. I’ve seen an episode here and there. But it wasn’t something my parents watched and back in 1995 when I was 13, we watched whatever my parents watched. And Xena wasn’t in the mix. I’ve since come to deeply appreciate Lucy Lawless from other wonderful work (ahem BSG!) And to appreciate this show as well. But I’ve never watched it all the way through. That being said, I really like Gabrielle. Spunky side kick to Xena herself.


This one took some work mainly because my hair is much curlier than Renee O’Connor’s. But I felt like running out and fighting bad guys or something. This hairstyle makes you feel pretty bad ass!!!

The CW’s Arrow is just getting better and better. The story and characters are strong. And there must be a fanboy over in casting because they have had some serious nerd royalty walk through the door.


Starting with John Barrowman as Malcolm Merlyn, father of Tommy Merlyn. Barrowman is known in nerd culture are Captain Jack Harkness from the BBC fan favorite, Dr. Who. And from his own spin-off series, Torchwood.


Alex Kingston recently joined the cast as Dinah Lance, mother of Dinah Laurel Lance. Also a Dr. Who alum, Kingston plays The Doctor’s on again/ off again paramour and wife, River Song.


Arrow even managed to procur James Callis as The Dodger in an episode. Callis is known for his role in Battlestar Gallactica as the love-to-hate-him baddie, Gaius Baltar. I cannot wait to see who else comes on the scene!
