On November 5, 2012, three geeky girls who had little to no idea what they were doing started a blog. That blog went on to do great things, win an award or two, and one more than one occasion may have slightly broken the Internet. However, as they say, all good things must come to an end. Today we officially announce the closing of 3 Chic Geeks. All content will remain available to you at 3ChicGeeks.com for another year should you desire to peruse your favorite articles one last time.

Okay, so, yeah, we’ve touched on Espionage Cosmetics’s nail wraps in the past; however, that was Amber’s doing. This time? It’s my turn. And, here’s the thing – I’m a nail wraps noob. 100%. It’s a little embarrassing, actually; this was only the second time ever that I used nail wraps. However, Espionage Cosmetics were kind enough to send us both some stunning new designs for testing, and, well, I’ll never pass up a chance to take photos of my nails. So… here’s how the experience went for me!
September is here, girls and boys, and we all know what that means – we’re going back to Hogwarts! Incidentally, it also means that it’s now socially acceptable to begin discussing Halloween costumes.Thank goodness, because some of us have been pondering what to wear on the big day since June. Unlimited options – only one weekend in which to wear them all.
Luckily I got some help from our friends over at the Costume SuperCenter, gave me this awesome costume to review. (You see that, FTC? Regulations met. Don’t sue me.)
The Dark Knight Rises inspired costume by Secret Wishes is modeled after the costume worn by Anne Hathaway in the aforementioned film. It comes with a bodysuit that includes attached boot covers, a belt, gloves, eye mask and headpiece. Here’s the low-down on each costume piece… Continue Reading →
Oh, look, it’s time for us to go back to the most magical place on earth – no, not Disney World. Hogwarts! And, I’m guessing that by now, you’ve gone to Diagon Alley, and you’ve picked up your year’s supply of cauldrons (because you keep bloody well melting them), your new robes, and enough Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes to last at least until the first Hogsmeade visit of the season. You’re all good there, but what about the other stuff? You know… clothes for when you’re not in uniform, stuff to put in your dorm room… that kind of thing. Back-to-school shopping shouldn’t end with a hidden street in London! Here’s our picks for what you will totally want to pack in your trunk before you have to get on the Hogwarts Express.
It is 10am PST on the morning of August 2nd, 2014. This can only mean one thing, friends… There’s only ONE FREAKIN HOUR UNTIL THE GISHWHES 2014 LIST IS RELEASED. My body is not ready. Continue Reading →
Lately, Destiel has become a hot topic, and by lately, I mean, it’s been that way for like, forever. I’m Team Destiel, all the way, and pretty much all of you know it. I put Destiel on MTV. (Twice. You’re all welcome for that, by the way.) A lot of us have been speculating what could or would happen to push Destiel into canon-ness; many expected it to become canon during Supernatural’s Season 9 (alternately known as Season Nein or Season Divine). Spoilers, it didn’t happen. Destiel is not yet canon. Of course, around 9.03 we had confirmation from one of the execs that Destiel is not intended to ever be canon and WHERE ARE YOU KIDS EVEN GETTING THESE SILLY SORTS OF GAY IDEAS ABOUT GAY LOVE PIERCING THROUGH THE VEIL OF DEATH HAHAHA DON’T BE RIDICULOUS WHY WOULD THAT EVER BE ON THE SHOW YOU’RE JUST IMAGINING THINGS and quite a few people got understandably upset, myself included. Well, I got to thinking lately, do I actually want Destiel to be canon? And I realized… maybe, maybe actually, I don’t. And here’s why:
…and that’s him up there. Yes, folks, a new member has joined our party, due to some people needing to Magneto away from responsibilities for a while. His name is Leif, he is wonderful, and he’s like, the cutest lil viking ever. Also he’s shorter than me by about an inch and you needed to know that. Anyway, yes, this is a thing that is happening. Please welcome him and get to know him and be nice to him when he writes stuff because if you aren’t, I swear to Godstiel I will do my eyeliner like I’m the Winter Soldier and kick your butt.
Also, I really don’t know how to write intro posts. Please just accept this, okay? Okay.

In spite of being a pretty big fan of G.R.R. Martin’s work, I am three episodes behind on Game of Thrones. Why, you ask? Because I still haven’t forgiven the show runners for the choices they made in episode 4×03, “Breaker of Chains”. Yes, I am referring to that scene between Jaime and Cersei.
I understand that most people have moved on. Most of the conversation has ended, the ranting and protesting has died off. However, that doesn’t mean that the conversation should be dropped; in fact, if what I’m told is true and the show has carried on as if the scene didn’t even happen, then I daresay we should be having even more conversation now.
The bottom line is that the scene was problematic and the way in which it was addressed was less than satisfactory. In order to highlight all the issues surrounding the scene in which Jaime sexually assaults Cersei, I’ve compiled a list of the Top 10 things people have said to me about “Breaker of Chains” that make my soul die a little.

Oh look, it’s Mother’s Day. It’s been crazy here at the 3 Chic Geeks offices, for a variety of reasons. Also, April is the most evil month to ever exist and for all future Aprils I intend to lock myself in a bomb shelter with no access to the outside world to minimize April-related risks. Have you had a good April? Does anyone ever have a good April? It is a cursed month, I tell you! CURSED. Ahem… anyway, since it’s Mother’s Day in approximately, oh, five seconds, here’s a lovely Mother’s Day printable card for you. It’s free to download, so please enjoy!
As I’ve mentioned in my past convention recaps, no con is quite complete for me without a visit to the Espionage Cosmetics booth. I first discovered their geeky goodness through the wonderful world of the Internet, which informed me that Firefly themed makeup was, in fact, a thing that I could own. Being both an avid Whedonite and lover of all things makeup, it was like I’d found a little piece of nerdvana here on earth. Continue Reading →
