First up, Thomas Zahler (author of Love and Capes) tweeted this ADORABLE mini Joker from WonderCon last weekend:
I WANT THOSE WING TIPS.
And the pants - but in my size. And the flower. :)
John and I keep an IM window open all day while we're working (or, "working"), so he likes to send me links to his favorite finds. Here's an especially squee-worthy one from yesterday:

These are baby
geese ducks leaving the nest for the first time. (D'AWWWWWW. Must...nuzzle...)
Don't you want a little plush toy of these guys? With beanbag filling so they're extra squishable?
[Note: Holy bird corrections, Batman! Apparently calling ducks "geese" is all it took to get our very first Epbot Epcot. Ha!]
John and I finished BioShock: Infinite last weekend, and let me tell you: it's every bit as amazing as you've heard. There *was* a scary section with some spooky bad guys, and John nearly jumped out of his skin one time when he turned around and there was a bad guy RIGHT THERE, but other than that, it's still way, WAY less scary/disturbing than the first two BioShocks. If you're on the fence, definitely give it a go! (I've even started a new game on my own at the "easy" level, although I don't know how far I'll get!)
If you're not interested in playing it yourself, though, then check this out: someone has edited together the entire story to make a 3.5 hour long movie! And believe me, this is a *fantastic* interactive movie, so I'd highly recommend you watch it any way you can.

One of my most popular finds on Pinterest this week: Comic Book/Pop Art nails!
So fun, and relatively simple, too! As someone already pointed out, this would be perfect with a Roy Lichtenstein face paint/costume.
This has been all over this week, but in case you haven't seen it yet: artist Michael Lee Lunsford decided to explore the question: What if female superheroes were fully clothed? So he drew new versions of classic superhero costumes while still striving to maintain the overall feel. Even for the ones where you might prefer a little more skin showing, this is a great conversation starter for fans and young kids alike:
Fully clothed Elektra & Supergirl
See the rest over on GeekNative! (Found via my friend Alex on FB.)
Related, but also covered just about everywhere already: The Hawkeye Initiative is both hilarious and a valid commentary on the "hyper-sexualization" of women in comic books. Take a look, if you haven't already!
And finally, since it's been days since I tempted you with goodies to drain your bank account on, BEHOLD:
The pendant from The Neverending Story! Only $15.99 from Geekify Inc.
That's the same Etsy seller who makes those stellar iPad and Kindle covers that look like the book from the movie, but I like that you can snag just the pendant, too. It'd be perfect as-is for a necklace, or for custom projects!
John and I have a crazy ten days or so coming up, as we're headed off to a renaissance faire this weekend and my parents are arriving for their big Disney vacation on Monday. It'll be nice to break out of my reclusive hermit routine, but I'm hoping my anxiety plays nice! How about you guys? Any fun plans for the weekend?
