Vicky's Dirty N' Nerdy Blog: "X-mas in August?"

August 10, 2017

So I was surfing the internet the other day when I made this realization:


There is about four months until Christmas! I know, I’m sorry to bring it up, but it’s true! Breath, it’s ok, I got you!


I am the kind of person who likes to get their shopping done early. It’s a combo of my fascination to write lists and then completing the tasks.


Well, once that info was in my head, I started running down the bigger items I’d need to budget, what my friends and family are eyeing, and I realized that I have surrounded myself with a ton of nerdy folks!


If you are like me and want to get the perfects gifts for your nerdy people, I have a few online places to go. You don’t have to use this right now for the holidays, there are plenty of birthdays, weddings, house warming parties, etc to go to until then, right?


Here are my favorite places:




Think Geek has always been one of my favorite websites, and lucky for me, they recently opened up a store about 10 minutes from my house in the Northgate Mall! If you are down south there is also one in the Tacoma Mall!



I love that they have the most random nerdy stuff besides just clothes and games, but they have stuff you wouldn’t even think about! Death Star waffle maker? Got it. Snorlax slippers? Got it! Pac Man full suit? Oh yeah, they got it. No matter the fandom, they probably have something for that nerdy person in your life.








If you’ve been to a bigger comic book convention recently, you have probably seen their booth filled with so many nerdy shirts your geeky little heart couldn’t handle it!


Even though they are not limited to just apparel, it is my favorite place to go when I need a new nerd themed tank top. Dresses, shirts, socks, pajamas, even lingerie…I always spend more than I intend to while on this site.








Ok, so I’m a little biased here because I’m friends with the lovely folks that makes Espionage run, but I actually do much my shopping here for my lady (and even some guy friends).


One of their main staples is their ever-growing line of amazing nail wraps, which I always seem to buy more at their Tacoma story or online even though I have a giant pile already. I can’t help it, don’t judge.





They also have a wonderful line of makeup that can be used for everyday looks or for your cosplay needs! 



If you’re not sure what to get from here, consider a subscription to a Boom Box that will have a different theme every month that you won’t be able to get anywhere else! Check it out here!



Also, quick shout out to Dominic S! I met him in line for shirts at the Metallica concert and told me he reads me blog, so this ones for you! (Sorry for the blurry picture!) 



Until Next Time, Stay Nerdy!
