Only 9 months to go till we lay our impatient eyes upon the newest installment in the Star Wars canon! Who’s ready?

Once Upon a Comic Con

Stepping off the subway at 34th and Broadway, you can sense in the air that this is not your typical Thursday in New York City. Something special is going on.

Those in the know are aware of what that something is. But the lay people of NY may be confused by the sight of Gandalf the grey on their train. And really confused by Two-Face Gandalf the Grey and White. But hey… it’s New York. So maybe they chalk it up to the quirks and oddities that come with everyday city life.

But then comes Princess Peach and Darth Vader. A Jedi My Little Pony walks by followed closely by an Optimus-Bumblebee hybrid. (Hybrids were very big this year. Click HERE for a laugh about it from College Humor.) Maybe characters they don’t even have a name for. These are the unique, non-mainstream costumes that only those of the “nerd” persuasion can identify and truly appreciate.

Yes… this is New York Comic Con.

A place where Harley Quinn and Iron Man can be seen walking hand in hand. A magical land where Bronies and Deadpools and Stormtroopers all belong. And where you can find a unique interpretation of Elsa around every corner. Basically it’s nerd heaven!

The second you walk through those big glass doors, after making it through the never ending line that finally ends and you have your bags and weapons checked at the door, you do one of two things… 1. Quickly race to the first panel of the day or 2. Head straight up to the showroom floor. Either way you head there will be another line waiting for you. But it’s a line filled with Poison Ivy’s, Slave Leia’s, 10th Doctors and Disney Princesses… so is this line the end of the world? Nope! Just another day at the office.

If you have any Comic Con Spidey sense, you brought your snacks, wore the proper footwear and have leisurely mapped your day out, incorporating ample people watching time. Because that in and of itself is a beautiful and fascinating thing.

Witnessing people in their natural element is an amazing treat and these people, my people, are most at home here at the Con. Among thousands of other like minds who understand their fandoms and passions. I can fall as easily into conversation with the Cumberbitches as I can with the Whovians. And the Trekkies and the Hookers (a newer one for sure.) And even with the DC universe vs the Marvel universe… here at the Con we are all nerds in this together. No warring factions here.

And for the first year ever, we have eclipsed the staggering mythological numbers that SDCC pulls in every year. And why not? After all, we are no red-headed step child. We are NYCC. A tour de force, a tidal wave of nerd culture. And in New York City we never do anything small!!

30 Days of Nerdy Hair-Nerdvember

Day 26: Cinderella

Today’s hair is dedicated to my dear friend who is currently at the hospital preparing to give birth to (I think a boy) a little tiny baby. Dreams do come true, little nibblet!!

Here’s my interpretation.

Day 17: Snow White from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves

Lips as red as a rose, skin as white as snow, hair as black as a black sharpie marker… wait that doesn’t sound right…

Listen… blonde’s can be hunted for their hearts as well.

Day 27: Princess Jasmine from Aladdin

Today is the first day of San Diego Comic Con. It’s also the first day of Zachary Levi’s Nerd HQ, which is the real reason (and best reason)for being in San Diego, CA this weekend!!

To kick off the finals days of 30 Days of Nerdy hair, I chose Princess Jasmine from Disney’s Aladdin.

image

To create this Disney princess look, I started with pretty tealish ribbon. Created a headband in the front and tied it at the nape of my neck. Then I rolled the front pieces of my hair around to the back, bobby pinning along the way.

Next I created a low pony tail and wrapped that in the same ribnon, securing in the back with bobbys.
Finally I created a second pony tail half way down and did the same thing with the ribbon.

Bonus Day 3 – Rapunzel

Here it is, everyone. The last hairstyle of the series.
I have to thank you all for coming to this page to see my little experiments. It’s been so much fun. And honestly I’ve really learned a lot, not only about what my hair is capable of doing, but of what I am capable of doing to it.
If you find yourself with free time, go on Pinterest, google your favorite movies or come right here and copy some styles. It’s fun, challenging and you’ll learn about your own hair.

A lot of people throughout the series kept saying ‘this isn’t nerdy, it’s beautiful.’

What I wanna do at Nerd in the City is share with you that beauty and nerdity can be one and the same. It is for me.

Zachary Levi (of Chuck, The Nerd Machine and… Tangled!) is always saying that, ‘being a nerd just means you’re really passionate about something.’

I think you have to be pretty passionate to get up at 5am every morning and copy hairstyles from popular and obscure entertainment sources for a straight 33 days. I am a nerd. And proud to be one!!

So without any more talking here it is. Today’s inspiration is Rapunzel from Disney’s Tangled. Voiced by Mandy Moore.

I have been collecting flowers throughout the series in anticipation of creating this hairstyle. I love this one. It may be my favorite out of all the styles. But more on that tomorrow…
