- 01-09-13Cool Stuff, Cosplay Posted by Regina Lizik

Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

ABOVE:  You might think you are the geekiest of geeky parents, but you’d be hard pressed to out nerd the parents who made their little one a tauntaun out of snow. [Neatorama]

It was Stephen Hawking’s cake day yesterday! Here is his face…. sort of. [Explore]

This deserves a witty comment but I’m too busy laughing. [Dorkly]

This isn’t your typical StarCraft cosplay, because Jessica Dru got a hold of the Kerrigan costume Blizzard used for promotion. Hop over to Fashionably Geek to see more photos.

For all your sonic screwdriver earrings and necklaces, there is now a TARDIS jewelry box! See more pics at the Mary Sue.

A TARDIS jewelry box is neat, BUT THIS IS FANTASTIC!. It’s a tent! It’s a TARDIS! It’s a TARDIS TENT! It’s also fully decorated on the inside to look like the TARDIS interior! It’s only 6′ feet tall, so if you’re short like I am you can buy this from ThinkGeek and hide out in it every day! [Geekologie]

See more pictures of the beautiful Jessica Nigri dressed as a female assassin from Assassin’s Creed III at Fashionable Geek.

This may look like an awesome replica of Quadratus from Shadow of the Colossus, but it’s way more than that. It’s a freakin’ external hard drive! Yes, there is a regular ol’ external hard drive under all of that cardboard and plaster. See more photos at Obvious Winner.

Wired’s Tim Leong created an infographic of the New York Times’ list of bestselling comics. Not so surprisingly, the top sellers also had a film or television counterpart out last year. [Comics Alliance]

This Piranha Plant glass pipe is all sold out at Hedcraft’s Etsy store. We’re sure whoever bought it is only using it to enjoy legal tobacco products. [Topless Robot]

All Peter Hollens needs is a dwarf beard and his performance of the Misty Mountain song will be even more epic. [The Mary Sue]

And now, T-Shirts You Gotta Buy…TODAY! (Before they’re gone.)
