At least they can be together in cosmetic form.

Personally, when I was that age, I wanted to be a rock star, or a time-space witch. Here’s a roundup of our favorite (more or less fictional) career choices from literature, television and film; we’ll break it down for you why each job is fantastic, and why you probably would want to avoid it anyway.

Nerdy Fashion: Doctor Who Fall Edition

fall outfits inspired by doctor who

Ahh, can you smell the pumpkin spice lattes in the air? Can you hear the crunch of the fallen leaves beneath the feet of the weeping angels which surround you as you blink at an inopportune moment? Can you see those spooky… wait no, no, what are we talking about? I don’t remember seeing anything, do you? Where did these tally marks come from? …Anyway, it’s autumn, and we here at 3 Chic Geeks are absolutely psyched for autumn. I’m sure, dear readers, that you agree with us – what with the pumpkin spice lattes, Halloween, Supernatural on TV, orange things, plaid flannel, cozy layers, hot tea, NYCC, warm jumpers and caramel apple Milky Ways – autumn is clearly the superior season. Of course, along with all those other wonderful things, autumn brings a veritable oncoming storm of fall fashion options. We here at 3 Chic Geeks are always pondering the contents of our closets, and today seemed like a good day to spill the contents of our wardrobes on the floor and play in our stockpiled attire until we end up with Doctor Who inspired outfits. So, um, yeah. Here you go.

Our Top 12 Choices for the 12th Doctor

As you’ve probably heard by now, Matt Smith will be leaving Doctor Who following the Christmas special. Considering this rumor has been going around for some time now, we can’t say that we’re terribly surprised. While we’ll be sad to see Matt go, this announcement has sparked endless amusing debate over who should play the next doctor. At this point the name of nearly every living British actor (and some Americans) has been proposed to take up the helm of the iconic character. Not wanting to miss out on the lively debat, we thought we’d provide you with a rundown of our favorite choices.

From the likely candidates, to the fan favorites, to the never-going-to-happens-but-that-won’t-stop-us-from-begging-Moffat, here is our wish list for Twelve. Continue reading

DIY: Doctor Who Inspired Bow Tie Necklace

IMG_1799

I wear a bow tie now, bow ties are cool.

I spent a lot of time staring at the adorable bow necklace in our Nerdy Fashion: Doctor Who Edition post. So much time that I talked myself out of buying it and into making it. It’s so easy and so cheap that I decided to make a tutorial. For about $6 and a half hour of my time I made a pile of bows, a hair clip, a necklace, and two bow tie pins that would be great for a last minute Eleven Costume.

If you can’t sew, don’t worry, I can’t really sew either. If you can kind of make a straight line, you can make a bow. If you’re really sewing phobic you can do all of this with fabric glue or hot glue. (Had I a hot glue gun, best believe I would have used that.) You can do this with just about any fabric you have lying around; I used some red felt. If your fabric is on the thicker side, (like felt, leather, denim, corduroy etc…) follow these directions. If your fabric is on the thinner side (maybe you’ve found an old t-shirt you’d like to cut up), you can follow the directions in this post on Lula Louise.
