Looking for something fun to do after a long day of battling lines and buying merch?

Check out the Her Universe Fashion show!

  • Thursday, July 24th, at 6pm at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel Harbor Ballroom – a minute’s walk from the convention center.

“Geek Couture” is about to descend upon the world’s largest pop culture convention in what many are calling “The must see” event at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. In a unique partnership two years in the making, three companies who are at the forefront of fandom and fashion have joined forces to present The Her Universe Fashion Show, the brainchild of Ashley Eckstein and Her Universe.

This unique fashion show brings together 36 designers, professional and amateur, male and female – who come from all over the country and have been preparing for months to premiere their original and strikingly geeky female fashion designs. The designers will compete for two grand prizes – an opportunity for both winners to co-design a Her Universe fashion collection for Hot Topic. A panel of celebrity judges will choose one winner while the audience will choose the other. The designs can embrace anything that is celebrated at Comic-Con – from sci-fi films and TV to comics, gaming, fantasy and more.

Fans who attend the Fashion Show will also be treated to the Hot Topic after party, which kicks off with a special performance by pop punk band All Time Low. This event promises to be one of the most buzzed about parties of San Diego Comic-Con 2014.

The coolest and imo the best part is that our very own fashion editor Laura is one of the incredibly talented designers showing their stuff!


Oh, Mother’s Day! The day where we say, “Hey Mom, thanks for everything!” But it can be overwhelming trying to find the perfect gift for the perfect mother. Have no fear, Nerdist friends! We got Norman Bates, motel manager and mother aficionado, to give us his best suggestions on how to pamper that special lady in your life. After all, as Norman always says, a boy’s best friend is his mother!

Watch Nerdist Presents: Mother’s Day Tips from Norman Bates here!

I’m down to the final 4 days of the contest, and The Fable Hunt is in theTop 10. If we make into the Top 5 (only 172 individual readers like you), The Fable Hunt is guaranteed publication whether we presell 1000 copies by November 19th or not.

But it is the last 4 days, and it would be amazing if you would ask one person to pre-order The Fable Hunt to hopefully catapult us further up the list.

Please forward someone this very email with a little note at the top about how excited you are to read the completed book and tell them that it’s only $5 for new members of Inkshares which is pretty darn affordable if you ask me. That’s really just one pumpkin spice latte fewer this week, and if I’m willing to give up coffee for a single morning, surely someone else is too!

Here’s the link to send too:

I’m also excited to announce that will be featuring an exclusive excerpt from The Fable Hunt on their blog tomorrow! Make sure you check it out. (see the fun pic above!)

Don’t forget to show your support of The Fable Hunt by recruiting a friend to support the project as well!

Hey I don’t know if anyone else knows about this, but if you search Game Grumps on iTunes you’ll find the top result is an hour long podcast from December where these two cool people from Nerdist Industries talk with Dan and Arin about a ton of stuff and it’s really neat and free to listen to and download so if you guys ever want to hear a fun, relatively unknown interview with the Grumps just go on iTunes and search Game Grumps!
Welcome ORPHAN BLACK’S Clonecast to the Nerdist Podcast Network! | Nerdist
It's an exciting day to be a member of the Clone Club working at Nerdist. Because today we have the supremest of pleasures, announcing that the official Orphan Black podcast — The Clonecast — has found itself an official home, and it's right here on the Nerdist Podcast Network. That's right, geek monkeys: all the crazy science you could possible live for is going to exist right here, in podcast form, from now until forever. What a time to be alive! Recorded every week at Temple Street Productions, the podcast features Orphan Black associate producer Mackenzie Donaldson and Clonecast producer Rob Moden as they go deep inside the fandom and chat about the episode du jour. Episodes include plenty of guests from the show itself, as well as a bevy of solicited questions from the Internet, hear crazy (and, cough cough, not so crazy JUST HEAR US OUT) theories, and even check out all that crazy-amazing fan art for which so many of you are Tumblr-famous. Welcome to the trip, folks. And that's

Big news! We’re joining nerdist!
