Em from Emsomerville
Oh hello, I’m Em. I create this world from my little desk, in my corner of our craft room, where I can surround myself with colourful art and toys to inspire me. I have an odd sense of humour, a love for the cute, sparkly, creepy and weird. I'm a collector and a clutterer. I like to fill my home with intrigue and wonder. I believe flaws are what make people interesting. My hope is simple - to create something that will add a little magic to your wall. Really, I just like to draw in my underwear sometimes.
Favourite cartoon? Dinoriders & Masters of the Universe!
Best concert you've ever been to? Tied between Foo Fighters with Tenacious D & Say Anything.
Batman or Superman? It's what I've called my boyfriend since the day we met. He was telling me about himself & I said "You're like Superman, but better...you're Batman!"
Favourite cartoon? I have so many favorite cartoons! I could list them all, but I think I will just mention my most recent favorite, which is the new Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated! I had never been into any of the Scooby Doo franchise until I saw the new show, and it's full of a bunch of horror genre references, and actually has an overarching storyline! (Which there was none in the original series!) I highly recommend it. Even my daughter is a big fan!
Condensed Star Stuff is a personal blog that I use as a means to explore and express my interests in style, art, science, and pumping some typing iron to strengthen my writing muscles. This blog was started after a long hiatus from the blogosphere, and I couldn’t have restarted at a better time! My favorite part about blogging is connecting with other people, common interests or not. It’s always fun learning about something that I would have not known prior to reading someone’s blog.
Best concert you've ever been to? The best concert that I've ever been to was a Pink Floyd tribute band performance over a year ago in Oregon. I forgot what they were called (oh no!) but they were amazing! It was New Year's Eve, and they sang the song "Time" when the clock struck midnight, and they threw gigantic balloons out into the audience. It was so much fun!
Batman or Superman? Batman all the way! I dig the fact that he has no super powers (other than maybe being a billionaire at birth, which isn't very supernatural (but maybe under odd circumstance?)), and so I find him easier to relate to in that regard. Also, who can resist a guy dressed in all black with a cape and a mask? (Side note: I actually get weak in the knees over villians...)
Mariko from Gamer Wife
Not being good at video games doesn't mean you can't still enjoy them. At least that's my motto over at Gamerwife, a place for gamers and partners of gamers to explore and celebrate video game culture regardless of their experience. I love to focus on game art, indie games, cats and whatever else my geeky heart desires.
Best concert you've ever been to? The best concert I have ever been to was actually a DJ show by Peter Hook, the bassist for two of my favourite bands of all time (Joy Division & New Order). Hardly anyone there actually knew who he was, but when I thanked him from the dance floor he looked me right in the eye and mouthed "you're welcome." I'm still swooning.
Batman or Superman? Batman. Duh
Emily from Bon Marche Couture
I started bon marche couture on Etsy two years ago, shortly after my daughter was born, out of a desire to do something creative and make a bit of extra money. My shop specializes in unique and affordable women's vintage clothing and accessories from the 1960, 70s and 80s. I am an inveterate bargain hunter and fashion lover. I post outfit photos to my blog during the week and host giveaways every weekend.
Best concert you've ever been to? Elliott Smith, Beck and Sonic Youth at Champoeg State Park in St. Paul, Ore., in 1997.
Batman or Superman? Batman all the way. Superman is a chump.
Leslie from LeslieIRL
Leslie Stewart, aka Darling Stewie, is an Internet pixie, web and graphic designer, blogger, and co-founder of the International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club. When she's not planning the geek wedding of her dreams, she loves to re-enact scenes from Disney movies, or partake in something costume related like LARPing or cosplaying. Wine gives her super powers. Speaking of super powers, her favorite superhero is Captain America. She's a through and through Hufflepuff, Browncoat, Whovian, and definitely rooting for Team Lannister.
Best concert you've ever been to? Die Antwoord in Washington DC. Yo Landi Vi$er is a hilarious pixie who has had too much sugar and cracks me up. I love the music, busting a move to their beats, and I definitely love their Kigurumi costumes.
Anna from Glitzy Geek Girl
Hiya! My name is Anna Lee, and I run a blog called GlitzyGeekGirl! I love to post about comic conventions, nerdy fashion trends, and photos of my one-eared cat. You will also find numerous guides and tutorials for cosplaying, hair styles and crafts. I'm very active on social media where I like to share pictures of new games I'm playing, tattoos I'm getting, and other fabulous adventures!
Best concert you've ever been to? The best concert I've been to is Paramore. I've seen them three different times and they never disappoint! They have incredible energy and stage performance.
Batman or Superman? I feel both are ultimate superheroes in their own right. If I had to pick one to be on my team I would choose Batman. His tough attitude gives him a few extra cool points.
Favourite cartoon? Cartoons! Do they even produce quality cartoons anymore?! This was hard because I had two brothers and I always ended up watching Pokemon and Yu-gi-oh (which were still cool). But when I did get the chance to control that glorious remote, I always searched for Sailor Moon. I had a slight obsession, which included hundreds of picture downloads, attempts at drawing characters, and trying to convince my dad to buy me a black cat that I could name Luna. Sadly the last request has not happened… yet. There was also an attempt to rename my grandparents cat Luna… yet another failed attempt.
Favourite cartoon? Invader Zim. That and Animaniacs...those are my shows, forever!
Favourite cartoon? That's a big question for someone who spends a lot of time dressing up as cartoon characters! I have a soft spot for Fairly Odd Parents, and out of all the currently-airing cartoons, I have really been enjoying Adventure Time.
Favourite cartoon? Avatar the Last Airbender
Kylea from Kylea & Co
My name is Kylea (pronounced Ky-Lee). If you guessed it wrong the first time, no worries; like the Gecko being confused for Geico, it happens all the time. I am an Arizona native who loves heat and my fur monster Ghillie. On my blog you will find: sarcasm, linkups, my love for all things Despicable Me, and a love for Teen Wolf and Game of Thrones. I also enjoy long walks on the beach, pina coladas, and netflix binges.
Best concert you've ever been to? The best concert I have ever been to was Keith Urban. I was right next to the stage and the energy was just amazing.
Batman or Superman? Batman. Hands down. Reasoning : Superman has external weaknesses that can cripple him at any moment. Plus he has to try and keep his superpowers secret, which is a lot of effort when you have superhuman strength. Or so I would imagine. Batman, well he is just a playboy, millionaire philanthropist who has an awesome butler and has the ability to just do what he wants. Plus Batman has the cool toys; point in case The Bat Mobile.
Joie from Confessions Of A Book Pimp
Hi! I'm Joie, and I am over at Confessions of a Book Pimp, where I am chronicling my desire to become fit and strong, as well as having fun sharing my fandoms and other likes. I'm also a pop culture fan, comic book & book lover (hence my nickname "Book Pimp" from my best friend) and an anime fan.
Best concert you've ever been to? Green Day. I've seen them well over a dozen times, and it's always a good show. My favorite was back in 2000/2001 when they played 6 "encores" I didn't leave until 2 in the morning.Batman or Superman? Batman. Flash car. Cool costume. Hot Bruce. Also I totally think meeting Alfred would be killer! He seems like the coolest of dudes!
Mia from XO Mia
I''m Mia - I'm an MBA student and a geek of all trades. I love dressing up, digital media, and geek girl culture. My blog, xo Mia, is a love letter to everything I'm passionate about, especially style, cosplay, and living the geek life.
Best concert you've ever been to? I loved Lady Gaga's Monster Ball tour. She was really energetic and each element of the show was part of a bigger picture and message. I love how the costumes, music, set, and dance routines all worked together!Batman or Superman? Batman all the way! I love the Batfamily anyway - Supes just seems a little dull in comparison. Batman works for his abilities, and to me that's much more admirable!

Best concert you've ever been to? That's hard! I enjoyed my first concert ever which was a Blink 182 but my most favorite experience was probably a Coheed and Cambria concert when I was 15, crowd surfed for the first time!
Batman or Superman? I am the night, I <3 Batman.
