Holiday Gift Guide, Lust-Haves

Gift Guides Galore: Geek Chic

I just looked at my calendar.

I just looked at my calendar, and exclaimed “HOLY $H!T, IT IS TEN DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS.” Don’t ask me where time went, I do not know. What I do know is that it’s time for me to throw myself into Blogger Hyperdrive and start churning out these gift guides left and right in time for the holidays. I know many of you have probably finished your Christmas shopping, but this one (and any thereafter!) is for my kindred spirits: the procrastinators!

I asked, readers answered: “We want to see more geeky lingerie!” And I am nothing if not accommodating. Feast your eyes on my top picks for the chic geeks in your life.

 

1.The Robe You’re Looking For in R2D2 from Modcloth.com

I am of the opinion that robes are severely underrated in the Lingerie category. They’re unappreciated, and it’s time that changed, because with the snow falling outside my window, I could think of nothing more amazing than curling up in a cozy robe with a cup of hot chocolate. If I were a fan of Star Wars, then that fantasy could only be improved by adding this little number:

R2D2 Robe $75.99

Does an R2D2 robe, a cup of hot cocoa, and a DVD marathon sound like your woman’s idea of an awesome night in? Then perhaps this is The Robe You’re Looking For? This cozy-cool robe is available from Modcloth.com in sizes XS to 3X!  And if R2 isn’t your thing, perhaps you’d rather wrap up in a Stormtrooper?

2. Dr.Who Lounge Pants from PinUpGirlClothing.com

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Pin Up Girl Clothing. A solid 90% of my dresses come from their stocks, and soon my pajamas will be no different. Recently, PUG has started carrying an awesome collection of nerdy-cool themed pajamas and undies, all at reasonable prices! While perusing their new offerings, I chose these Dr.Who Lounge Pants because, Dr. Who, obviously.

Available sizes S/M/L/XL
$25.00

While I have never actually watched an episode of Dr.Who, (I know! I know! Don’t hold it against me!) I know that the Doctor has quite the cult following. Odds are, your lady is a fan. And if your lady is a fan, odds are she’d be thrilled to find these underneath her Christmas tree. Available in sizes S-XL, these lounge pants are priced at a reasonable $25.oo. Check out PUG’s new offerings here, and get shopping!

3. Darth Vader Garter and Knickers by LicoriceandCream 

I discovered Licorice and Cream while I was researching for this feature, and my jaw dropped to the floor. Because, c’mon. IT’S A DARTH VADER GARTER BELT!  The force is definitely with this one, because this thing is flippin’ awesome.

 

DARTHVADERGARTER
Darth Vader Garter Belt and Knickers by LicoriceandCream
Garter Belt (XS-XL) approximately $46.00
Knickers (XS-XL) approximately $27.60

Based out of Melbourne, Licorice and Cream sell a number of cool and quirky underthings for the lady in your life. There are a number of themed boyleg pants and garter belts, as well as several vintage-feel pieces with a distinctly modern touch. Licorice and Cream also do printed bras, but alas–I am sized out. This particular lovely is available in sizes XS to XL, and cost $46.00 and $27.60 respectively. Take a peek at their Etsy shop to see what they’re all about!

4.Pelvis Bone Print Panties by Knickerocker

Available in sizes XS-XL and Made-To-Measure $9.50

I introduced you lovelies to Knickerocker in my last gift guide, and I loved their stuff so much that I had to give them another shout. And what more appropriate for a Geek-Girl lingerie list then a pair of Pelvis Printed Panties? (Oh, alliteration, how I love thee.) Maybe your sweetheart is really into anatomy. Maybe she’s studying to be a doctor. Maybe she just really, really likes skeleton things? (I’m not judging.) Either way, these pelvis-pants might be the perfect gift for her!

 

5. Fallout Vault Boy Panties by BunnyJump

I have a confession to make. I have logged 175 and a half hours into Fallout 3 and Fallout:New Vegas respectively. It’s not something I’m ashamed of, but it’s not necessarily something that I advertise, either. (Because honestly, when I’m snarling at the television screen or squealing-and-running from Deathclaws, it ain’t a pretty sight.) Suffice to say, I’m addicted. So, when I spotted these Vault Boy panties by Bunny Jump, I screeched like a little girl and pointed enthusiastically at the computer screen. (“I WANT THEM! I WANT THEM!”)

FALLOUTUNDIES
Fallout Vault Boy Undies by Bunny Jump
Available in UK Sizes 8-16 (US 4-12)
Approximately $24.43

This isn’t my first time hearing about the BunnyJump brand. The lovely Boosaurus did a feature on Nerdy-Girl Lingerie that is pretty spectacular (check it out here), and included quite a few pretties from Bunny Jump on her list. Crafted by hand and made in the UK, each pair of BunnyJump undies or bra straps are unique–just like the geeky-girly in your life!

There you have it. Five geeky-girly-awesome items for the lingerie loving nerd on your list. Get shopping, folks! Because Christmas is coming, whether we procrastinators are prepared for it or not!
