Once a week I sift through the millions of Etsy listings to find the best in geek chic for Blog@ readers. Last week I harkened back to my childhood with the Princess of Power herself, She-Ra. This time I’ve decided to focus on one particular Etsy user, as I’ve done in the past, starbrightsilver (Megan).
Never before did I think to myself, “You know what I need? I need a Bat’leth necklace.” I can’t say that any longer. Starbrightsilver has recreated the famous Klingon weapon in tiny form for $37.
I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love Jurassic Park. I thought I was a total weirdo until I became friends with a girl that was equally obsessed with the dinosaur film. Needless to say, we share a special bond and I know she’ll love this “Clever Girl” necklace as much as I do. In Jurassic Park font of course, $20.
Two words. My. Precious. $50
As soon as I looked at this A-Team pin I got the television theme song stuck in my head. And now, so do you. Starbrightsilver has this one for $12.
And last but not least, prove to everyone you’re a Goonie by wearing their motto for everyone to see. This “Goonies never say die!” pendant is made from black perspex/acrylic and sells for $19.
As always, bear in mind, since Etsy is a craft website and not a commercial, mass-market dealer, items are almost always one-of-a-kind or in very limited availability. When you see something you like, buy it. It may not be there the next time you surf round. (Yes, it’s a very dangerous site for your wallet.) Also, since most items are created individually, many sellers are willing to customize something specifically to suit your needs. Just ask!
