The Best Geek-Themed Baby Nurseries And Nursery Decorations

Wednesday, August 28th, 2019

It’s only natural for parents to hope their children follow in their footsteps and for geeks, that means getting their youngster to love sci fi, fantasy, video games and the like. These geek-themed nurseries and accessories are perfect for sparking a lifetime of geek fascination in any little one.

Star Wars Baby Nurseries

When it comes to creating a nursery with a full Star Wars theme, this room featured on Apartment Therapy is perhaps the most impressive as it features lightsaber sconce nightlights, a wampa skin rug, Star Wars crib sheets, a starship mobile, a Boba Fett lamp and quote from the movie on the wall and pillow. Little Rocky M Olsen III  is sure one lucky geek.

If you just want the Star Wars crib sheets, you can make your own from Star Wars cloth, or you can order a custom set like this one made just for your crib courtesy of Etsy seller Pam and Ander.

A rocking horse is fun, but a rocking AT-AT, like this one by Epbot, is something every future nerd baby needs to pass their days away. Granted, only the Dark Side tends to use AT-ATs, but letting your little one rock away on any great Star Wars toy is a great one to get them started on the path to geekness.

Custom mobiles are always cool, but when they figure in some of the most iconic starships in the universe and the Death Star, they are hard to beat. If your little babe wants to sleep under the stars and dream of blowing up Empire ships, you’ll want to check out this one by Etsy seller ARCre8.

Mario-Themed Baby Nursery Decorations

Sweet dreams are made of 1-ups. Or, at least, they can be if your little one falls asleep below this fantastic Mario mobile by Etsy seller IFeltinLoveBaby.

For those that like to go the DIY route, it’s hard to beat the Mario nursery by the bloggers at Blueberry W. They not only put up these adorable vinyl decals in their baby’s room, but also made their own Mario mobile from small plush toys.

Every little one needs something to cuddle with and whether your babe is a princess or a plumber (or even a gorilla named “Donkey”), Etsy seller GeekUnique has you covered with their adorable 8-bit, game-inspired baby quilts.

Superhero Baby Nursery Designs

Every parent wants their baby to be super, but if you really want to get them started off on the right path, why not put him or her to bed in a cozy superhero nursery like this one by The Diary of A Dame. With a super color scheme, Superman’s logo on the quilt and curtains and superhero paintings on the walls, the room is a clean and fitting tribute to the iconic heroes of both Marvel and DC.

So what do you hang over your baby’s superhero crib? How about this custom mobile by Etsy seller dropsofcolorshop? The seller will even customize the mobile with your choice of characters so you can make sure your little one grows up aspiring to be the right kind of hero, not just any old comic book character.

Finally, when you need to swaddle your babe up in a cozy heroic quilt, you wrap up your little one in this great superhero baby quilt by Yoderby Design.

Lost TV Show Nursery Design

A lot of people were disappointed with the ending of Lost, but those of us who watched the series know just how fascinating the show was during the first few seasons. For those little innocents who still haven’t seen the end of the show though, it still has the glimmer of promise and potential –which is why even those disillusioned by Lost can still enjoy this fantastic nursery based on the show by M&J Collection. The collection not only features the Lost bedding and décor you’d expect, but even Dharma Initiative baby food and an airplane mural.

Game of Thrones Nursey Decor

You might not actually want your babe watching or reading the sex and violence in Game of Thrones until he or she is much, much older, but there’s no harm in letting them enjoy an adorable wall mural, like this one by Tumblr user Somepointless, featuring cartoon versions of all the house sigils.

Once you have a mural, you might as well add a matching mobile and Etsy seller VosKiss Store has just the thing you need when it comes to preparing your babe for the horror and excitement of the Red Wedding and the Battle of the Bastards.

There’s always great costumes at the SDCC and this year was no exception. Here are some of our favorite cosplays from the 2019 San Diego Comic Con.

This Constantine looked spot-on. He even had a bag of tools for the job.
Aquaman lady sdcc
This one is cosplayed by Maggie Marvelous, who is an absolute sweetheart.
Tony loves you 3000
The perfect response to the Christian protesters at the convention. The other side of his sign said “Tony loves you 3000.”
The Batman Joker cosplay
Technically this Joker is from the The Batman animated series, but since he was originally a comic book character, here we are.
Taskmaster and Deadpool
Here’s Taskmaster and Deadpool having a bit of fun.
venom cosplay 2019
Venom sure looks scary with those massive teeth!
juggernaut cosplay
It’s not easy to pull off a good Juggernaut cosplay, but this guy sure did.

Harry Potter cosplay
This young wizard has a promising future.

We already mentioned those Christian protesters, but this Vader is the forgiving type, offering them free throat hugs.
Mad Hatter woman
We’re all mad here, or at least you become crazy after dealing with the crowds.
red queen alice head on pike
When the Queen says “off with her head, she means it!”
escape from la cosplay
Looks like someone escaped from L.A. only to come to sunny San Diego.

Cartoons

steampunk tinkerbelle
Steampunk Tinkerbelle? Yes, please!
Megara from Hercules cosplay
Meg’s dress looked even better here than it did in the movie.
Monster high costumes
I have seen far too few Monster High cosplays.

There simply aren’t enough Rainbow Brite costumes in this world.

This couple looked adorable as the characters from Over the Garden Wall.

Don’t have a costume but have a lot of hair spray? Consider going as a Troll doll.

TV Shows

Scoops Ahoy
Easily one of the most popular costumes this year was the Scoop’s Ahoy uniform.

Game of Thrones may be over, but there were still tons of cosplayers fighting for the Iron Throne.

Ultra realistic mask-makers HyperFlesh were here to promote their creations with Prison Mike and Dwight masks

Video Games

Minute Man cosplay
I’ve never seen a Minute Man at Comic Con
mass effect
This Mass Effect makeup looked fantastic!
Street Fighter
There’s always a few Chun Lis at the con, but it’s always nice to see a group cosplay.
Kingdom hearts costumes
This is certainly a cute take on the Kingdom Hearts game.
Bowser
All bow down to Queen Boswer!
Pikachu girl
Pikachu is always adorable and this is no exception.

Others and Groups

Hamilton sdcc 2019 cosplay
Never thought I’d see the day when Broadway made its way to Comic Con, but anything can happen during a 50th anniversary I guess.
Xena and She-Ra
She-Ra and Xena sure look great together, even if they don’t quite fit together in the same universe.
Bob Ross or Bob Ross Pool
How can anyone be sad with Bob Ross around? Especially when he’s decked out for the con with a little Rocket Racoon on his shoulder and a Deadpool mask in his pocket.
Steven Universe and Dude Jedi
Steven Universe and the Jedi Dude certainly look good together.
Prince cosplay
It’s always good to see Prince. RIP.

Unknown

Here’s your turn to identify all the cosplays from the 2019 San Diego Comic Con that I don’t actually recognize!

cosplays from the 2019 San Diego Comic Con dragon
This dragon is awesome, but what is he from?
Gregorian dress
Is this Gregorian dress up from something in particular or just another delightful anachronistic dress?
unknown cosplays from the 2019 San Diego Comic Con
I love all the incredible details in this costume -even the ruffles are adorned with skulls, sadly, I don’t know where it’s from!
It cosplay  2019 sdcc
Yes the character on the right is Pennywise, but who is the character on the left with a Joker fish, Thor’s hammer and a Pikachu hat?
unknown genderswap cosplay
This is a fun genderswapped cosplay, but who is he dressed as?
Freddy Mercury and red floral dress
That’s certainly Freddy Mercury on the right, but who is the woman on the left portraying with that gorgeous floral dress and headpiece?
Female Shazaam and pirate
We’ve obviously got a female Shazaam on the left, but I’m not sure about the decidedly pirate-looking lass on the right.
Master Roshi
Many people will undoubtedly recognize Master Roshi from Dragon Ball, but who is the awesomely armored guy beside him?
Dracula and unknown 2019 sdcc
One final group where I recognize one but not the other. We have Bram Stoker’s Dracula on the left, but who is the woman on the right?
Fish lady costume?
She’s got a spear and gills, those should be some big clues!
unkown sdcc 2019 costume
If you like a girl with a big gun, you’ll enjoy this cosplay, but do you recognize it?
glowing monster costume
This costume is seriously epic with its light-up details, but I regret I don’t recognize it.
Cool She-Ra?
This kind of looks like a modern take on She-Ra, but I’m not sure. Can you confirm or deny this?
Cute wizard girl
I love this magical wizard costume, but I don’t recognize it, do you?
BMX cosplay
I’ve been told these two are from a BMX movie, but I don’t know which one. How about you?

Best BMO Cosplays Online

Monday, March 21st, 2016

Adventure Time’s BMO is a simply delightful character. Completely asexual, adorably cheerful and both a friend and source of entertainment in the post-apocalypse, BMO is the electronic friend we only wish we could have. While BMO may not be real (at least not yet), we can at least celebrate him/her through the power of cosplay and here are some of the most delightful BMO cosplays out there.

This winter, I got the chance to attend Wizard World Portland.

Here’s a full gallery of the costume. including one that shows how Ryan actually fit in the massive piece:



Breaking Bad: The Alternative Ending

Sunday, November 17th, 2013

(Video Link)

You probably thought Breaking Bad was the story of a chemistry teacher who turns to cooking meth in order to provide for his family after he dies from cancer. As it turns out though, the show was really just a really dark Malcolm in the Middle spin off show.

If Woody Allen Directed Wolverine

Saturday, August 17th, 2013

What happens when you replace Logan’s angst and anger with neurotic mumbling? You get Woody Allen’s version of Wolverine.

Something tells me this film wouldn’t do nearly as well as the blockbuster version that’s out right now.
