Okay, so, just before NYCC, we went over with you guys what you should definitely bring with you to the con, whether you’re based in the city or traveling up to it, and what your con attire should totally aim for if you’re not cosplaying.. Nifty, right? Now, this next part was carefully tested and learned over the past four days at last weekend’s New York Comic Con 2013 at the Javits Center; you can use some of these tips for any con at all, and some are NYCC-specific. It’s going to be especially handy when NYCC 2014 comes around!
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.

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.
Are you one of those people who has the urge to wear your favorite Who tee every day? Have you amassed a collection of Megan Lara shirts commemorating all your favorite companions? Do you get new Doctor Who apparel from all your friends every holiday? Do you really love nerdy fashion? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, this post is for you.
Last Wednesday was a pretty crazy day here at 3 Chic Geeks, and we surpassed our highest daily view tally by a landslide. We wanted to say thank you to all of our faithful readers, and thank you to the lovely and enthusiastic Doctor Who community on Reddit.
In honor of all of them we have what is, perhaps, the easiest craft you’ll ever see on 3 Chic Geeks. All you’ll need is a printer, some paper, a pair of scissors, and tape. Just print out the template provided at the end of this entry and…
The theory that runs my life is that someday I will be recognized as so intensely extraordinary that a half-giant on a flying motorcycle/man in a blue box will inform me that there has been a terrible mistake and he needs to bring me to Hogwarts/All of time and space right away. I’m not getting any closer on the Hogwarts front, real owls tend to bite those that try to bribe them into carrying messages to Dumbledore , but thankfully my vivid fantasy life involving Doctor Who only becomes crazier and and more real with each passing day. Here we have, ladies and gentlemen, the mounting body of evidence that proves I’m totally sane. Continue reading
I put the final touches on my Christmas tree the other night and I realized I hadn’t made anything even remotely Doctor Who for it. So if you’re looking to spruce up that spruce with a little galactic something or if you’re looking to assemble a last minute gift for a Doctor Who fan, this one’s for you. Continue reading
It is a truth universally acknowledged that most people who read this blog are probably shopping for holiday presents for their families at this very moment. Now, some of you probably have friends who are huge Jane Austen geeks – we here at 3 Chic Geeks certainly are!

All in all, we have gathered some of our favorite Jane Austen-themed objects in this handy gift guide. It’s perfect for last-minute holiday shopping AND for drooling over things you desire (with us, it is a little bit of both).
