Adorable Geek Girl Cosplay

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Ooooh, I'm feeling pretty good about the future of girl geekdom today, guys! Check it out:

via

This Batgirl could kick your butt and look fabulous doing it.


Then reader Kirsten M. sent in this pic of her daughter as Doctor Horrible:

Kirsten even made the coat herself! Now that's raising your geek girl right. Kudos, Kirsten!

One more shot of gratuitous adorableness:

"The world is a mess, and I just need to RULE it."


Speaking of adorable evil, have you seen the Vader princesses?


Submitted by readers Clint & Emma J., and made by mayamagination

Tutus and crowns and lightsabers, oh my!


Ah, but wait: there's more.

Found by Van L. and made by booturtle (hit the link for more pics)

Squeeee!

And pay close attention to the Death Star wand, if you please.

Love. It.


And one more, hangin' with her papa:

via The Force is Strong
Soooo cute.


And finally, for you knitting fiends raising your own geekling, check out reader Jennifer L.'s adorable SuperBaby costume!
Isn't it fabulous? You can even customize the colors and chest logo, and, c'mon, it has a cape. You can buy the .pdf pattern on Jennifer's site, but I also have a free copy for one of you lucky readers!


So, if you'd like to win a SuperBaby knitting pattern (in .pdf format) just leave a comment on this post by 10 pm EST today. I'll announce the winner here, on this post, and on the Epbot FB page by 10:15.


And the winner is.... LuluB!! Congrats, Lulu. Shoot me an e-mail so I can get you your pattern.


Which reminds me: I also share a fair amount of links and goodies exclusively on the Epbot Facebook page, so if you haven't "liked" Epbot on FB, you're totally missing out. Just sayin'. :)

  3. I love this pattern! My mom does baby photography and it would be a great prop to make her :D

    Also, bonus points because I'm posting this from my Physics course ;)

    ReplyDelete
  4. Ooo! That would be a great next knitting project for my baby girl!

  6. Mwah-hahahahaha... I've been working on the laugh; it's about standards! Last year was a PvZ Halloween, and I'm thinkin' this year needs to be Dr H. Oh, yeeeeeeah.
    I don't know how to knit, but my mom does.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I don't have any kids of my own, but my 5 year old niece would look adorable in any of these SQEEEEE!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I totally want that pattern. I don't knit, but I know someone who does and would get a kick out of it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. hehe I know what I'm getting my mum to knit for my baby (when he/she comes) no booties for us.

    ReplyDelete
  10. My little girl would look adorable in that costume. Sign me up!

    ReplyDelete
  11. WANT! I just started taking up knitting and this would be a fun project! :D

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh, yes, please!! And those are awesome pictures! I have much faith in the younger generation.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Love the Vader Princesses! And that SuperBaby is adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh my gosh that's so stinking cute! I would dig out my incrdilby rusty knitting skills for this!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Totally awesome. I wish I were as cool a geek as these geeky parents.

    ReplyDelete
  16. My day is made with my blog and Darth Fairy making it on Epbot! And I'm overdosing on all the geek girlie goodness. Pink Batgirl rocks.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Aaah! Superbaby! (I'm growing one of those right now.)

    ReplyDelete
  18. That's so cute! I'd love to win that! :D I love this blog, and all the geeky cuteness it brings into my day!

    ReplyDelete
  19. WOW double geekdom today with CakeWrecks, too! We are not worthy!!! Would love to have a superbaby pattern - how cool would that be!?!?!?

  20. So cute! Somewhere I have a picture of me dressed as Rainbow Brite when I was 4. I use that picture as proof my mom loves me. The whole costume was stuffed to give it the proper shape, AND she made me an orange/yellow yarn wig to wear with it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Cute geekery as always.

    If I win, this pattern is going straight to my wife, who loves to knit and crochet things for others. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I've been getting worried. My middle school daughter went to school dressed as Lois Lane for Halloween (name tag and all), and only the teachers knew who Lois Lane was. She was also the only one celebrating Towel Day today, but that wasn't as surprising. It is good to know there are other geek moms out there working to raise our girls right :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh my gosh!!! I need this knitting pattern for my boys! Do I sense homemade Halloween costumes on the horizons? Too. Stinking. Cute.

    After seeing the Lady Vader costumes, I have yet another item to add to the list of reasons we need to add a girl child to our geek herd. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh how I wish I could go back and do my childhood like that!! ah well I swear on all that is geeky that if I should ever raise children they will be dressed right! (...And have a life size model of the tardis to play in:) - Kat

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh how I wish I had a girl. Sigh, Would still love to win the knit pattern I know some baby/toddler girl geeks that need some help.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love your site, I check it all the time, waiting with baited breath. I would love to have a copy of the pattern so my new goddaughter can help lead the next generation of geekgirls!!!! PS I always wanted to be Vader. Not really a Leia kind of girl.

    ReplyDelete
  27. why were my parents not awesomely geeky when I was little? I had to raise myself to be a geek on my own!!
    the worst saddest part of this are
    a) I have no geeky baby pictures
    b) I cant buy my parents all the awesome geek parent stuff from thinkgeek

    ReplyDelete
  28. So adorable! And perfect for getting me in the mood for con this weekend! Thanks for the post and a chance to win an awesome pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  29. oh! I love it! I can just see my oldest niece doing the Vader Princess thing. And she starts planning her next Halloween costume on Nov. 1.

    ReplyDelete

    I'm 8 months pregnant with my first Super Baby!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am in LOVE! We have been posting geeky vids of our 6-month old (in costume and set to soundtracks), but these are making me think we need to step it up a notch...

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'd love to have that pattern!! Why can't there be more of these around?? good patterns are hard to find!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Holy cuteness, Batgirl! My girls are lost to the world of cosplay, but I bet my new niece, not yet a month old, could be forced into the costume. I promise to send a picture of her in it if I win the pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  39. My little girl is due in Sept so this would be great for first Halloween/bedtime

    ReplyDelete
  40. I just learned to knit, my first project was a doctor who scarf. My cousin's baby so needs this.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Such adorable little girls. Here's my teenage geek girl in her Tardis costume from Halloween. It is even bigger on the inside.

    The little sister would love to be a superhero.

    ReplyDelete
  42. So completely adorable! Would love to add this pattern to my collection. :D

  43. When my daughter was 2, I was watching the Enterprise series to catch up to where my husband was in the season and got my daughter hooked on Star Trek and spaceships. She wants to fly a space ship when she's all grown up. I've already got my young son hooked on ST as well, hehe

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm always knitting baby things for baby showers and such (frankly, I just like the quick turnaround compared to knitting for adults) so I'm sure I could find somebody to make this for!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I am gonna be an aunt real soon, and I aim to be the coolest, geekiest aunt ever. Watch out, little one!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Man... This is INCREDIBLE. Even if I don't win, I suspect I will be purchasing this wonderfulness.

    ReplyDelete
  47. don't even have a child, but..... comment.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love the pattern! That would be perfect for my son's next Halloween!

    ReplyDelete
  49. oh my...that's the cutest super hero outfit! Audrey, my 18 month old niece would suit the suit perfectly! i love the geek girls you find :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. My two little girls would love those costumes, if only they came in adult sizes....

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love girl geekiness...it is so cool.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I would absolutely LOVE to win this! Ok, so our little super girl isn't even due until July, but that means I would have no excuse *not* to finish this before she can walk!

    ReplyDelete
  53. even more reasons to pick up knitting...

    ReplyDelete
  54. oops i left the comment about my neice Audry and forgot to leave my name...i always seem to find a link on your site that keeps me busy for a while :) thankyou for helping me thru some slow work days!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I want the pattern for my friend Dawn who knits and has a 2 year old boy who is PERFECT for that costume.
    She is also a fabulously funny blogger.
    www.the-domestic-goddess.net

    Those Darth Vader princesses remind me of my 4 year old who yesterday dressed herself as a princess-fairy-jedi-ninja. She had a wand AND a light saber in addition to the tiara and wings.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Ooooh -- I know a lot of little ones that I MUST knit this for!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Oh I adore this! So many babies to do this for!

    ReplyDelete
  58. If my mom would have ever thought to pinkify Darth Vader like that, I would probably be a bigger Star Wars fan today.

    ReplyDelete
  59. My niece Olive is going to love her geektastic Auntie M! :D

    And I want this!
    Death Star Cookie Jar

    ReplyDelete
  60. I just fell in love a ton with all of those costumes. If I ever get a girl we will be teaching her the way of the geek.

    ReplyDelete
  61. If my mom had ever thought to pinkify Darth Vader like that, I would probably be a bigger Star Wars fan today. Not that I didn't find my own brand of geek on my own, but sometimes I wish I liked something as popular as that.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Glorious! I love being the geeky auntie with all the geeky goodies! I also love including my niece in the showers of gifts. The fact that my 1 1/5-year-old niece is now running around humming the Imperial March only adds to my suspicion that her parents are raising her right.

    ReplyDelete
  63. OMG WANTWANTWANT! My little girl is 6 now, perhaps too big for the pattern, but I do knit and I have nerdy friends who have yet to procreate, so it may still come in handy!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I would love to knit that for my friend's daughter.

    ReplyDelete
  65. oh I LOVE that. No babies yet, but he/she is doomed to be a geek baby, so he/she needs to look the part.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I just love this post so much! I'm going to have to make some of this for my niece. TOO CUTE!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I must get this!!!!
    Crafting + nerd things = epic

    ReplyDelete
  68. That is awesome!!! I love to knit, and the costume is ADORABLE! Ooooh, I hope I win I hope I win I hope I win...

    Of course, I don't have any kids, but that is a minor detail.

    ReplyDelete
  69. That's all awesome, but the Death Star wand totally wins! :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. I really Like the Pink Princess with her daddy soo cute:)

    ReplyDelete
  71. Love the pink batgirl and the darth faries! how awesome! I don't knit so pick a different comment if this one happens to be chosen (What am I saying I never win anything anyway)I just couldn't not commenet. Geek on, my friend, Geek on!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Oooh... I can think of a few cool kids who could fill out that superhero suit pretty well.... :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. I know just the baby I would make this for! (And then I'd hang on to it for when I have kids cuz you know I'm going to deck them out in all sorts of geeky things.)

    ReplyDelete
  74. I have 2 friends expecting girls in the next year, I'd LOVE to make that for them! (And if I don't win, I'm just going to have to make my *own* pattern!)

    Oh! And, wv~ kingsh; why does my husband still think he's kingsh(tuff)?

    ReplyDelete
  75. Awww, I know two super cute super babies!! My sister just learned to knit, AND she's a huge comic book geek! My nieces would look super DUPER adorbz in something like this!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  78. I don't know if I could knit that, but I gotta try for the pattern. It's a Knitter Law.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Harper needs a super baby cape! She would be adorns and geeky in one awesome package!

    ReplyDelete
  80. impressive color work, though with a baby, I can't even imagine how long that took to make. Lots of geeky love went into that for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Love the princess Vadars! I crochet but in a few weeks I'm hoping to learn to knit (group of ladies at church are doing a craft night in June-bring what you do, learn something new). I would love to make a Superbaby costume for a friend's baby girl.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I'm not interested in the prize (ty though!) but had to on comment how freaking adorable those girls are! Jeez, my uterus already weeps when I pass the baby dept in Target. This just doubly makes me want a girl.

    ReplyDelete
  83. That's fantastic! Saw a little girl at work today with a supergirl cape!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Oh, goodness, the Super Baby pattern is adorable!!! I might even go over to the dark side (knitting--I'm a crocheter) to make it. And it need not be for a girl... My little geekling boy would look darling in it... In the right colors. ;)

    Pirdly-- I'm pirdly sure that's a cute costume.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Baby Doctor Horrible is just exploding with cuteness, but I'm wondering if that little girl has actually seen Doctor Horrible. Because as a child, that ending would have scarred me for life. Then again, I couldn't watch The Lion King for years after my mom decided to let me watch the Mufasa death scene, so maybe I was just that kind of kid.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I've never wanted kids, but this restores my faith that some are being brought up right!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Wow I'm so glad people seem to like the costume! I didn't know Jen was going to be posting it! I wanted to share another look at it- the original Superman version: http://jeloca.wordpress.com/2007/11/02/up-up-and-away/

    (I didn't get permission to sell a knitted Superman official costume so I created my own Power Princess and SuperStar logos...though in the pattern I tell YOU how to use the basic pattern to make up your own hero, with even a blank chart for the chest!)

    For those who did want to get their own copy, you can find the pattern through my blog as Jen listed (http://www.jeloca.com) or directly here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/my-first-costume-superhero

  88. Mo Tancharoen just posted a link to this page on Twitter.
