Nerdy Fashion: BBC Sherlock Edition

Sherlock Edition

However, we here at 3 Chic Geeks find that the layering aesthetic adopted by many of the characters works wonderfully during the warmer months. We’ve compiled a series of outfits to inspire you to bring a little bit of London to your summer wardrobe. Continue reading

March Madness: Semi-Finals

semi-finals

Round Three of March Madness: Shipping Wars proved to be fairly predictable. On the Fan Favorites side, our number one seed and number two seed, Johnlock and Destiel, were the two to advance. Ten/Rose easily made it into the Final Four as well. However, Jack Harkness/the Universe managed to take out the number one canon seed, The Ponds, proving that Harkness is the dark horse of this competition.

Here are the updated brackets:

March Madness: Round 3

round 3

Whew. 

Round 2 of our March Madness: Shipping Wars was absolutely brutal. The battle of Johnlock vs. Wincest was by far the most intense we have seen yet. After going back and forth the entire time, Johnlock came out triumphant in the end. Stony, Merthur, and Destiel all made it to the next round for the Fan Favorites while on the Canon side The Ponds, Harkness/Universe, Romione and 10th/Rose round out the Elite Eight.

After an intense first round, we have our Sweet Sixteen.

On the Fan Favorites side Johnlock, Wincest, Stony, Nuna, Bagginshield, Merthur, Legolas/Gimli and Destiel have all advanced. The slash couples have definitely done well in the Shipping Wars.

In the Canon conference The Ponds, Zoe/Wash, Buffy/Angel, Jack Harkness/The Universe, Romione, Black Hawk, Eowyn/Faramir, and The 10th Doctor/Rose made it to round two. While The Ponds are the favorite to win overall, there are some definite dark horses that could make it to the end. Continue reading

The Reichenbach Feels Playlist

The Reichenbach Feels Playlist - All your reichenbach Fall feels in a convenient playlist format

We here at 3 Chic Geeks are intensely familiar with the feeling of having ALL THESE FEELINGS about the Reichenbach Fall. We don’t know how Sherlock did it; we can’t get over what happened; the mere words “Goodbye, John” are enough to make us randomly burst into tears… we swear we don’t have problems. Now that Sherlock season 3 is thiiiiiiiis close to being filmed, we thought we’d give everybody another way of torturing themselves until that fateful day when Sherlock 3.1 hits the airwaves. So, the great and sinister force that is Freak Geek went through her music collection and put together a playlist that details EVERY SINGLE FEEL that you will feel… in the exact order of you feeling those feels. Ready to laugh, weep and rip your hair out? Read on to find out which songs made the list!

Disclaimer: If this playlist looks like it was made by Dean Winchester… that’s probably because it was. Don’t judge me. I only know like five albums. -FG

Happy Valentine’s Day From 3 Chic Geeks!

banner

Ahh, can you smell the love in the air? It’s February – which means roses, chocolate at ridiculously cheap prices, lovey-dovey couples and a plethora of brand-new fics with ALL of our favorite pairings. Seriously, Valentine’s Day is the best if you ship rarepairs because everyone comes out with a ficlet at the very least. Woes of rarepair shippers aside, it’s the season for madness and excitement. Here at 3 Chic Geeks, we asked the illustrious Baker Street Babes to be our valentines this year – and to our surprise, they said yes! We have thought long and hard about what kind of Valentine’s Day tribute would be appropriate, but in the end we took some shots and wrote these glorious poems. However, before you read these, we suggest you check out the BSB website, twitter, and facebook… because we love them with jetpacks.

Okay, have you checked them out? Liked? Followed? Good. Now, sit back, relax and enjoy this traditional Earth custom of writing silly poetry to express one’s jetpacks. Because, jetpacks.

bad boyfriends

Valentine’s Day is coming up, and it’s time to think about to whom you’re going to profess your undying love. As dedicated fanboys and fangirls, we all have a few characters we are at least a little bit in love with. Or a lot in love with. Or obsessed with. You know, that kind of thing. True love won’t be stopped by the constraints of reality, after all – you are absolutely certain that Dean Winchester is the man for you. Great, but we here at 3 Chic Geeks have extensively gone through every one of our fictional crushes and picked apart all the reasons why they would NOT be good boyfriends. Read on to find out what we think would be the dealbreakers for each of the characters!!
