Doctor Who Chibi001

Chibi, manga reader’s like myself are probably very familiar with the word.

Chibi is basically a Japanese word meaning “short” or “small child”. The meaning is not meant to be taken literal in a context of say someone being short but more of a “cute” person. Chibi style characters pop all over anime and manga and many commercials in Japan, it’s as cultural as the use of kawaii forms of advertisement.

People tend to enjoy creating fan art that depicts their favorite manga stars in Chibi form like L from Death Note or even famous movie characters like Harry Potter. This in fact is the lead in for my Etsy Discovery.

I recently came across an amazing seller creating Chibi necklace charms of the 10th and the 11th and I immediately had to purchase both for myself (and 10 for a friend).

Take a look if you’re a Doctor fan!

Get Your Geek On

I think it’s been two years since I’ve been to Comic Con San Diego. Oh woe is me!

However, Felicia Day reminded me what I was missing out on today when she posted this amazing slideshow from EW that features a ton of various geeky shows and celebs in a wicked little slideshow.

You can view it by clicking here fellow geeks!

My favorites…

  • Felicia

She looks darling here! Like a high school student!

  • Bruce Campbell

Who rocks a leisure suit like nobody’s business.

  • Emilia Clarke

Who happens to be unrecognizable without her signature white hair!

  • Peter Dinklage

He’s just incredible, need I even say more? He takes to whatever film or series he is in like a fish to water.

  • The Entire Cast of Walking Dead

Zombies rock!

  • Tyler Posey

Because he’s so darn cute I wanna squeeze his cheeks!

  • Emma Stone

Hey, what’s she doing?

  • Jason Momoa

Because he made Khal Drogo way hotter than the books! I wanna lick him. Can’t wait for Conan!

  • Robert Rodriguez

Because he’s freaking Robert Rodriguez!

  • Jonah Hill

Whoa…I loved you as the chubby, token loser kid but you look amazing now!

  • The Cast of Chuck

Jeffster Rules! I wish they were my Prom cover band!

  • Zachary Levi
