You guys!!! Nerdy hair is back. I’m doing things a little differently this time around. Mainly because I’ve discovered that Florida does not like my hair when I attempt to do anything fun to it. Seconds after I step outside, every effort to look like I did something to my hair is instantly lost in the inevitable cloud of humidity.
That being said, I couldn’t let Florida kill Nerdy Hair! 😉 So I’m attempting to do tutorials and make these styles happen, but just a little ahead of time. That doesn’t mean I won’t try to do them in real time sometimes, just that it probably won’t look like I have.
Without further ado…here it is. 30 Days of Nerdy Hair!!
Day 1: Princess Leia from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
Another brand new thing I’m trying…daily videos for the whole 30 days!!! Check it out:
This Friday night, Nerd in the City is having it’s next #NerdySlumberParty If you’ve never been to a Twitter party before, here’s how it works. The party will kick off at 9pm on…you guessed it…Twitter. You can join the discussion or just follow along with the hashtag #NerdySlumberParty Since it’s a virtual party, you can join in no matter where you live. You can even wear your PJ’s and no one will be the wiser (I always do!)
There will be giveaways and we’ll be talking about all things DC Comics. That means we could be chatting about the recent seasons of Arrow, The Flash and Gotham. We could talk about the upcoming Supergirl show on CBS. Or the myriad of movies soon to hit our big screens, including but not limited to: Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad and The Justice League. We could also discuss the various comics out there like the New 52.
All nerds are welcome, so invite a friend!! You do not want to miss it.
If you haven’t heard about Zachary Levi’s crowd funding efforts for Nerd HQ by now, then I have to ask you… Do you live in a hole? Do you not have Wifi? Can you even really call yourself a nerd?
Yesterday, the I Want My Nerd HQ website went up on Indie GoGo and within an hour over $28,000 was raised in an effort to support what Zachary Levi and his Nerd Machine are doing. By the end of the day… over $68,000. The goal is $1 million.
If you have been to Nerd HQ before, then you know why we support it. If you haven’t… what are you waiting for? One of Willie Wonka’s golden tickets? Jump on it!!!!
From the photo booth to the parties to the Conversations for a Cause. From the signings to the merch to the Serenity screening. Nerd HQ is an amazing experience!! And it is a free event to attend. Conversation money goes directly to Operation Smile as does the money from some of the other wonderfully nerdy surprises that tend to happen. Not only will you experience something really special, but you will be helping a cause that is very worthy of the efforts!
Head over to The Nerd Machine or to the Indie Gogo website. Tweet the crap out of it #IWantMyNerdHQ. Add Twibbons to your Twitter and Fibbons to your Facebook. Blog, vlog and shout the word! This event is ground-breaking. It’s important. It’s freakin’ fun. So go now and do it! Seriously!
The directions for this origami ornament can be found here.
I just took the template and made it Nintendo specific by adding little eyes and then used a fine fishing line to string them into ornaments. This is super easy and a real cute way to nerd up your Christmas tree!!
There are many great tutorials out there on how to make these snowflakes. There are even templates you can print out and just cut like these at BuzzFeed.
Here are the ones that I did. I chose to make a Stormtrooper flake and a Boba Fett flake.
Start by drawing a circle on a piece of paper. Then cut out the circle. Next fold in half once… Twice… Three times a lady… (this last one fold into thirds) When you open your paper you should have 12 sections. Then draw on the template (or just print it out from this website) When you’re done cutting him out, Boba Fett will have 2 antennae. Cut off one of them from each Boba Fett section of your snowflake. Hang and enjoy!!!
This snowflake begins the same way the Boba Fett snowflake does. When you get to the template portion just draw on the stormtrooper template instead of Boba Fett. And there you go.
Nothing says holidays like these little beauties. There are a couple versions on Pinterest, but some are very complicated so I made my own simplified version. Very easy to copy or to alter and make your own!
Start with a square sheet of paper, whatever color you want. I chose white cause it’s very snowflakey.
Next fold it in half and create a triangle and then fold in half once more.
Next draw on your Tardis.
Then cut out.
And voila!! Christmasey goodness, Doctor Who style!
Make as many as you’d like to create a Winter Whonderland.
