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

To make up for the initial trauma of that Joker cosplay, here is a the best and most beautiful Harley Quinn cosplay you will ever see. This Victorian Harley Quinn is the first in a series of Victorian Batman villains by Monarch Creations.  GeekxGirls has more stunning photos of Breanna Reilly in the costume.

lego helms deep

LEGO renditions of Helm’s Deep aren’t exactly rare, but few of them take a year to plan and six months to build. The picture above gives you an idea of the scale of this thing. Check out MOCpages to see some of the incredible details. [Brothers Brick]


When I first saw this at Geeks Are Sexy, I thought it was a gag and not a real thing. But it is a real thing, and you can get it at New York Comic Con this weekend.

ada lovelace print

No, this isn’t some weird ad for that movie about the Deep Throat actress. It’s part of a series of Rock Star Scientist art prints by Megan Lee. The series includes Ada Lovelace (pictured), Tesla (of course), Mandelbrot, Curie, Newton, etc…

This Magneto Costume Hoodie from 80s Tees might not make you as awesome as Ian Mckellen or as badass as Magneto himself, but at least you can pretend!


Okay, so these aren’t technically wedding bands, but in my opinion, the couple that hunts together stays together! These White Hunter rings are by Paul Michael Bierker and range in price from $2500 to $265 depending on size, design and materials. [Technabob]


Have you ever wondered what to do with your Playstation when it stops working? Well, Dan Shanks repurposed two PS2s into this insanely awesome Batman Tumbler! If you’re not as artistic as Dan, you can buy the Tumbler on Etsy.  [Obvious Winner]

No, I’m not crying after watching this video of Superheroes’ Day at Children’s of Alabama Hospital. It’s just allergies… yeah, that’s it. Allergies. [Fashionably Geek]

I now present to you the very unfunny, but very real, trailer for the Hunger Games spoof film the Starving Games. [Cinema Blend]
