For The Win

Win, Win, Win
Everybody for the Win!

We all win when Team Unicorn releases a new video!

The team is back with their first original song; For The Win

"You’ve waited a long time for this haven’t you?

We know. Us too.

We were waiting to bring you something special, and by golly, we’ve done it. This music video is special to us because it’s our first original song, and in it, we sing about all the geektastic stuff that brought us together at the most geektastic place on Earth:

San Diego Comic Con.

We feel like it’s a song everyone can get behind, regardless of their geekery, because it’s a song about people putting aside whatever damage they have acquired in their life’s quest, and coming together to have fun and win at life as equals.

For the Win."

 Featuring cameos by:
Al Yankovic
Aisha Tyler
Grant Imahara
Ashley Holliday



 I'm super excited for this song. I love everything that Team Unicorn puts out. It's so great that more and more women in main stream culture are coming out as geeks. We're not just a myth



Team Unicorn shows us that putting yourself out there and doing geeky things, will only bring us together more as a community, but also how important it is to be yourself. So get out there and do  the things you love, go to local Comic Conventions, hang out in comic book stores, find groups in your area of other geeks and non geeks and get to know them. 

When we come together, everyone wins



“For the Win” Lyrics

–I played Magic the Gathering
–And knew all about the One Ring
–My friends never understanding
–I thought it was only me
–Then like the lions in Voltron
–We came together one year at comic con
–All around us Orcs, X-Men, Thundercats
–We weren’t alone, now we’ve found our home

Win Win Win
Everybody for the win
Come together join the team We’ll show you what it means
(Whoa Whoa Whoa)
Win Win Win
Everybody for the win
Double Rainbows everyday
Zelda we will play

Win Win Win

–Now we all plan Harry Potter movie nights
–Around our weekly lightsaber fights
–Our powers are stronger than the true source
–Together we’re more (and more and more and more)
–Winter’s Coming and only we can handle it
–Come with us, ‘cause we’re fiercer than the Mord’sith.
–We’ll prove to you that unicorns do exist
–You’re not alone, now you’ve found your home.

Win Win Win
Everybody for the win
Come together join the team
We’ll show you what it means
(Whoa Whoa Whoa)

Win Win Win
Everybody for the win
Double rainbows every day
Ninja Gaiden we will play
(Whoa Whoa Whoa)

Win Win Win
Monday’s fighting robots
Tuesday’s reading comics
Wednesday’s raiding all the way to Thursday
Reforging weapons on Friday for larping
Where did my weekend gooooooo?

Win Win Win
Everybody for the win
(Aah Ah)
Come on kick some ass
It’s gonna be a blast
(Ah Aah Aah)
(Whoa Whoa Whoa)
Win Win Win
Everybody for the win
(Aah Ah)
Try to not be scared
We promise to play fair
(Ah Aah Aah)
Win Win Win
(Whoa Whoa Whoa)
Everybody for the win
(Whoa Whoa Whoa)
Come together join the team
We’ll show you what it means
(Whoa Whoa Whoa)
Win Win Win
Everybody for the win
(Whoa Whoa Whoa)
We don’t care what they say
(Whoa Whoa Whoa)
We could play all day
(Whoa Whoa Whoa)

Win Win Win

Geek Girl Fashion And Accessories Part 2

So, I don't usually do 2-parters, but post 1 was already getting pretty long and I hadn't even gotten to awesome accessories yet, so I decided to break off and do a separate post about them.

Sometimes we don't or can't show our geeky pride off as much as we'd like to. For example; I have to wear business casual clothes for my job. Even on casual Fridays, I'm not allowed to wear graphic t-shirts. Believe me, if I could, I would wear my Star Wars shirts to work. But since I can't, I have to be more creative with my geek pride.

Enter Accessories.

I wear my Batman earrings to work every day. Heck, I even wore them to a wedding once.
Geek jewelery use to be really hard to find, but with the growing girl geekdom out there, more and more jewelery is showing up on the market.

How can I not start this off with Her Universe.

When they first brought out their charm bracelet, I had to have it.

I totally love it, although I don't have all the charms yet, I love the ones I do.
What's also great about it, is that they have matching earrings to go with them!

I love the Naboo earrings sooooo much!!

Once upon a time, HU only catered to Star Wars fans, but since they've expanded, they've added these to the roster, Star Trek earrings and a Battlestar necklace.

HU isn't the only place to find BSG jewelery. The Nova Geek is offering these awesome pieces.

Think this necklace is amazing? It gets better!

That's right! It's two necklaces! You can either wear it as one or share it with someone you love!
To round off your BSG look, try these bad boys on for size.

Being a huge Sailor Moon fan, I really want these pieces from Annamax.
How could I even say no to Sailor Moon lockets? The problem is deciding which one I like the most.

C's Charms offers a whole variety of geeky fun. I narrowed it down to must-haves, but it was really hard and there are still a lot.

These are just the Doctor Who ones I want

Video Games

Cartoons and Movies

And random ones I just love and want

Seriously though, go and take a look at the site. You will find something you like, I guarentee it.

Lastly, we have Star Wars rings from Swank Metal Smithing

It's funny that the first ting I noticed was that there wasn't a Rebel Alliance ring. But I guess not all girls are rebels at heart like this one is. Still very cool though.

So how do you show your geek pride? Drop me a note and let me know

Geek Girl Fashion And Accessories Part 1

I love showing off my geeky pride.

art by ForeverWars

It's pretty easy to tell I'm a geek. When I'm not at work, I'm almost always in a graphic t-shirt. I carry either a Yoda, Grover or my Talk Star Wars To Me bag, and for awhile, a Star Wars purse (before it fell apart). Even when I'm at work, in a corporate setting, I'm still wearing my Batman earrings
I also have a Star Wars charm bracelet, an R2-D2 swimsuit, tons of geeky socks and an R2-D2 toque that was handmade for me.

But is that ever enough? Maybe I want something a bit more girly? Maybe some dresses?

BlackMilk, as always, has the answers
and a brilliant Star Wars line

Yes, I own this dress as a swimsuit and it is awesome!!!!
You can also get it as the 2.0 more realistic version, but I like mine better.

This is actually one of my favorite pieces of Slave Leia art. I absolutely love it as a dress

I'm not sure why, but this Stormtrooper dress might be one of my favorites.

They also have a Lord Of The Rings line, which I find oddly disturbing and fun.

I really do love the Middle Earth Map dress though

Also, not to be overlooked, are these awesome Game Boy dresses. They come in blue (as pictured) green, pink, teal, purple and yellow.


Keep in mind, these are just some of the dresses you can get there, you should also check out their swimwear and leggings

Another cute dress is this cartoon word print dress from Top Shop

It comes in a skirt as well, but I totally love it as a dress

If you're looking for more of a handmade feel, check out these amazing dresses and skirt from ReStitch Retro

Can I just say that I love this Doctor Who dress!

The nice thing about these dresses is that you can pick out which fabric you want her to use. That's awesome.

Fun leggings are all the rage these days. So geeky and fun leggings are even better!
I found these, and many other great ones over at Storenvy

I totally want Sailor Moon leggings!

Now, I really want to go into geek accessories, but I fear that it'll make this post way too long, so I'm breaking it into 2. Tune in shortly for Part 2
