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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
ABOVE: This Lord of the Rings guitar was hand illustrated, using sharpies, by Vivian Xiao. It took 25 hours to complete the design. Obvious Winner has close-up shots of this incredible work and make sure to scroll all the way down to see the beautiful back of the guitar.
One of my favorite gals Mac Beauvais got her Lady Loki on this weekend. Unfortunately, her evil efforts were thwarted by some Lady Avengers.
The hair! The smile! The tiny shoelaces! This crocheted Tenth Doctor is cooler than you are, but not as cool as the artist Jimmy Loveridge, who’s also made Doctors Nine & Eight. Loveridge is currently working on making Rose, but last I heard her boobs were giving him trouble. Don’t worry, Jimmy, I’m sure Rose’s boobs gave the Doctor trouble too.
Superhero can cozies! Because sometimes your beer needs to cosplay, too. [That’s Nerdalicious]
If your nerdy nights are cold and lonely, you can snuggle up with an Amazon with this Wonder Woman throw blanket from Modcloth.
This Batman cake is the sweetest! An adorable Batman and an adorable Robin protect this Gotham confection from equally adorable villains! [MTV Geek]
From one adorable Robin to another, this pug was hand-drawn by artist Nina Levy. Levy doesn’t draw these elaborate superhero pups for money. Nope, she does it all for the love of her sons. This cutie-pie pooches are packed into each of their school lunches! The Mary Sue has more canines in capes on their site.
I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t post a TARDIS cosplay and you’d really be missing out if you went about your day without seeing this ingenious get up. This isn’t your average TARDIS dress. She’s the control room! She lights up! I want this dress! [FashionablyGeek]
The people behind Twaggies are bringing your tweets to life, well, at least to comic-life. They take the funniest/most clever tweets and draw them out as comics. The above tweet is my favorite, because DUDE WHY COULDN’T YOU TELL SHE WAS YOUR SISTER???? [CNET]
Ever wonder what it would be like to go on a speed date with a supervillian? Now you can find out. Also, whoever organized this shindig should have kept Harley away from the Joker. Geeks Are Sexy for the Superhero version.
