DIY Star Wars Skirt and Hair Bow in One Hour

This past weekend I was stopping by one of my favorite stores, JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts, to pick up a few supplies when I came across this beautiful Star Wars fabric.  I knew that I had to have it!  When I got home I looked online and found a very simple tutorial on how to sew a skirt in one hour by Brett Bara, author of Sewing In a Straight Line.  Supplies: - Approximately 1 yard (91cm) medium-weight fabric* - 1 3/4″ (4.5cm) wide elastic (the length of your waist circumference) - Tell Me More!
What We’re Obsessed With This Week

What We’re Obsessed With This Week

Our first obsession this week is this Indiana Jones engagement ring which we saw on Fashionably Geek.  The ring is fashioned after Jones' whip coiled so the ring will fit beautifully on your ring finger.  The stone is a yellow diamond a/k/a The Idol.  The coil even wraps around part of the stone.  This ring is gorgeous! Last week we announced that the CW had definitely ordered a pilot episode DC superhero Green Arrow.  This week, the casting sheet for Black Canary has leaked onto Tell Me More!

The Avengers & Dark Knight Rises Statues Revealed!

2012 is already slated to be a huge year for superhero movies.  Much of the information about The Dark Knight Rises has been kept very secret, including Catwoman's (played by Anne Hathaway) costume.  But yesterday on Idle Hands we saw the first glimpses of the movie-tie in statues which give us a side view of Anne's costume.  We're loving her textured costume and thigh high boots with a silver heel.  She also appears to be wearing elbow length gloves.  Also being released in the line is Tell Me More!

Etsy Shop of The Day: Nerd Lacquer

I've found my new favorite line of nail polish! Nerd Lacquer is a line of glittery hand-blended creations from the fabulous Amanda Collier. The best part is that each color is "inspired by sci-fi faves and other geekery". I couldn't wait to try this stuff and immediately ordered two bottles. The first color I tried was All of Time and Space, from the Mad Man With A Box collection (a reference to Doctor Who). This polish is a shimmery turquoise color with a mix of small and medium fuchsia and Tell Me More!

What We’re Obsessed With This Week

Our first obsession this week is the new Hunger Games movie poster. Everything about it is just beautiful.  We love how the coloration of the poster coordinates with the first book in the Hunger Games trilogy.  We think Jennifer Lawrence looks amazing.  The poster shows Katniss concentrating while aiming her bow and arrow.  For anyone who doesn't already know, the Hunger Games are a fight to the death.  We're so excited to see the movie adaptation of Suzanne Collins' book (and of course Tell Me More!

Protesting SOPA: The Internet Blackout

In protest of SOPA, many of our favorite websites have decided to blackout today.  SOPA stands for the Stop Online Piracy Act.  It is a bill that many companies and people believe will take away our freedom of speech and is an overall threat to the internet we love.  The bill is intended to stop foreign websites from copyright infringement.  The bill will allow the U.S. Department of Justice and copyright holders to seek court orders against websites suspected of enabling or facilitating Tell Me More!
