Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, someamusing, 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

ABOVE: I am positively giddy that it is once again ‘Nerdy Gingerbread House’ time.  This gingerbread Hogwarts by Cherry Bay Cakery is the first one to pop up this season. I know the word ‘epic’ is overused, but considering this has 50 pounds of fondant and took 100 hours to make, it’s definitely deserving of the word! [Geekologie]


The dark side will keep your midi-chlorians  cozy this winter when you wear this Darth Vader beanie from SuperHeroStuff. [Geek Alerts]

steampunk batman

It’s a dapper steampunk Dark Knight! [Fashionably Geek]

steampunk catwoman

…. every steampunk Batman needs a steampunk Catwoman! [Food and Cosplay]

comic book convertible dress

I’m a huge fan of everyday cosplay, so I’m pretty in love with these superhero inspired dresses from LittlePetalNYC. Designer Danielle Ward has tons of styles – Batman, Superman (above), Harley Quinn, Adventure Time etc… I will say, as I actually own a convertible dress, they aren’t that easy to wear and uh, I had a wardrobe malfunction in the middle of Brooklyn once. [Technabob]

supermario shiba

Wow. Such nerd. I’ve been meaning to post this since Halloween but keep forgetting. And in case you are wondering, no that is not my shiba. My shiba would murder me in my sleep if I ever did this to him. [I own/love a Shiba Inu]

odin fangirls over loki

Everyone on Tumblr knows how you feel Odin! EVERYONE! (btw, I totally snorted my drink up my nose when I saw the Loki/Sherlock image.) [Dorkly]

femme spike

Girl Gone Geek does an awesome femme Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop.

DIY Dalek

If you have more patience than I do, you can crochet yourself this AD-OR-A-BLE dalek just in time for the 50th anniversary special.  [StormFly Crafts]

The Force is strong in this little one! This nerdy baby is soothed out of a tantrum with the Star Wars theme song! [Twitter]

Check out the amazing costumes from this year’s Blizzcon [Geeks Are Sexy]
