While shopping at Wal-Mart this past weekend, I stumbled across these superhero briefs for men. Yes, these are for adults. They look like overgrown Underoos. While I’m always thrilled to find superhero apparel, these are not something I would wear. This takes scaring away the ladies and reinforcing stereotypes to a whole new level. And […]

Here are some Halloween costume ideas! All of these costumes appeared at DragonCon 2010. Some of these are incredibly elaborate, while others are fairly simple and could be made by you at home with a little time and effort. There were hundreds (if not thousands) of different costumes at DragonCon. These just happen to represent […]
I came across these really cool tote bags for girls this weekend at Wal-Mart! Forgive the fuzzy photos, they were taken with my camera phone. The picture below came out especially bad. It’s a shame because it was a cool looking design. You should be able to find these at your local Wal-Mart. Girl Power!
Have I mentioned lately how awesome my wife is? The other day The Irrepressible Gena came home from shopping with this t-shirt. She’s an absolute non-geek, but bought this shirt because she knew it’d make me happy. She’s so fantastic! And beautiful too! It’s a reproduction of the cover to Wonder Woman #253 dated March […]
You may have noticed the countdown timer in the upper-right hand corner of ONCE UPON A GEEK. This is counting down my arrival at Dragon*Con 2010! We’re about 28 days away and it can’t get here soon enough! Over on THE UNIQUE GEEK, they’re doing their own version of a countdown called 40 Days Of […]
Are there too many blond female sidekicks? It occurred to me yesterday that the female sidekicks of the “Big Three” are all currently blond: Supergirl, Wonder Girl, and Batgirl. That’s sort of odd. The previous Batgirl and Wonder Girl were both raven-haired, while the Batgirl before that was a redhead. Supergirl has pretty much always […]
I have a four-year-old daughter. Let’s call her the Precocious Princess for discussion purposes here. As many children do, she idolizes her older brother (he’s 10). She sees him playing with superhero and sci-fi action figures and emulates his behavior. Recognizing that, I’ve been trying to buy her girl-centric superhero toys. If she’s going to […]
Here is a cute outfit my daughter wore when she was still itty-bity. I was so proud to show her off in this! Well… at least until that other little girl at her daycare, Lena Luthor, got a kryptonite baby-rattle. What a spoiled brat that kid was!
I’m closing out my DragonCon 2009 coverage with my favorite costume photos. Some have been shown here previously, but they bear repeating. To see all of my DragonCon photos, be sure to visit my Flickr page. If you have a favorite costume that I left out, be sure to mention it in the comments. A […]
While cruising through Illinois on our 1,400 mile roadtrip, Serv and I spotted signs for the city of Metropolis. I’d certainly heard of this mythical city, but never expected to have the opportunity to actually visit it. We couldn’t resist the chance and made our detour. I was surprised how different the city looked as […]
