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: On the cartoon Star Wars: The Clone Wars we were introduced to the female half of Darth Maul’s race, the Night Sisters.

Fashionably Geek has more of Erek Foster‘s photography which you need to see in order to better appreciate the slight, more feminine alterations Laure made to Maul’s design.
