Chic Geek: The Beauty of Geekery


a blogumn by Delia Hauser

geekblingThe other day, when I was researching my next article, I stumbled upon on a whole section of Etsy I stupidly haven’t even addressed yet.  How dare I leave out those sellers that proudly list their wares under the category “geekery”?!  Yes, that’s right; not JUST clothing, or jewelry, or gifts, or home décor, because it includes ALL of these things with a little nerdy spin.  I mean, isn’t that what this very site is all about?

We geeks are different these days.  Having a scientific mind, playing Dungeons and Dragons, or using an inhaler no longer defines the modern nerd.  You can be a very stylish nerd, or an art nerd, or even a football watching WWE nerd.  I recently met a lovely female nerd that has every sci-fi book and movie known to mankind AND she wears Prada.  Her shoe collection was a sight for my sore eyes and her DVD collection for my boyfriend’s.  You just never know, you know?

So, I explored this perfectly joyful section on Etsy for HOURS, and sifted through literally thousands of listings to find a little something for every kind of new millenium nerd.   Check them out or go to Etsy and peruse “geekery” a little while for yourself.  I’m sure that hundreds of wonderful things have been newly posted since I last looked.  Meanwhile, all sorts of Geek Bling and Nerdy Things after the jump.
