Nerdy Bits: Walking Dead Easter Eggs, Mystique Body Paint, Sonic Goes to Hogwarts, LEGO-Nintendo Wishlist and MOAR!!!!
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: I’m throwing a big Easter brunch on Sunday and I was considering doing a Game of Thrones theme and making dragon eggs, but I think I’d much rather terrify my guests by making zombie Easter eggs. I doubt my versions will look as awesome as the ones pictured above, which are handpainted by the very talented Lesley Jensen. [Between the Pages]
The Backpack Shoppe has a lot of geeky goods, but their dinosaur wine racks are my new obsession. Dubbed ‘Wine-O-Saurs’ these handcrafted wooden holders come in three different finishes and take about 3-5 days to ship.
Mystique isn’t an easy cosplay to do, mostly because she’s completely naked and blue but with the help of makeup artist Veronica Hervas and photographer Jose Manchado, cosplayer Sara pulls it off flawlessly! [Geek x Girls]
Whether it’s comic, film or cartoon, all of Spidey’s faces are here. [Geeks Are Sexy]
Artist Steve Talkowski shows us how adorable robots would handle everyday tasks with these 3D models he made for the March of the Robots challenge. I’m totally jealous that this robot can play on his phone and hold his coffee! Why don’t I have an extra arm? [Laughing Squid]
No fair! How come Sonic gets to go to Hogwarts and I’m still waiting for my letter? [Fashionably Geek]
Laughing Squid has collected several Nintendo LEGO CUUSOO sets, like the Kid Icarus: Uprising one pictured above, in the hopes that the more we talk about a LEGO-Nintendo partnership the more likely that it will become a reality. Please, guys, we want to give you are money. Let us give you our money!
Some mashups are more epic than others and with hits like I Don’t Know How to Love Him featuring Miss Piggy Magdalene and Simon Zealotes featuring Fozzie and Electric Mayhem, this Muppet Christ Superstar might be the mashup to end all mashups. [io9]
Speaking of Kermit, after decades of living with the perfection that is Miss Piggy, our favorite frog suffers a breakdown…. in front of a bunch of small children! [Topless Robot]
Cumbersome machinery is apparently way better at Jenga than I am. [Geekologie]
