GeekMom made me the Ghostbusters cross stitch, the "Venkman is my spirit animal"magnet is from Sarah, and Heather sent over a few steampunk charms I forgot to include. There were also a few other cards, although the Wibbly Wobbly TARDIS from little Claire & Eleanor was the geeky champion. :)
Then, on Christmas Eve Erin N. e-mailed me some of her artwork, saying I might recognize the character:
"Come to the Chibi side. We have cute."
[gratuitous Kermit flailing] AIIEEEE!!
It's no exaggeration to say this made my whole Christmas Eve, so I just had to share. Look at all the details! The feather epaulettes! The pin-hole lights on the cane! THE EYELASHES ON THE GOGGLES!
Erin didn't actually call this a Chibi Lady Vadore, but that's what came to mind when I first saw her. You can check out more of Erin's work over on DeviantArt, although I don't see this piece there yet. Maybe if you ask her nicely? [Update: A-ha! She's added it now!]
Which reminds me: Victoria G., who made my very first Lady Vadore fan art, has added it to her DA account, so you can see that here, and even buy a print if you're so inclined.
So now I have a Lady Vadore Art set! I'm going to try to get them both framed and hung in my office this weekend. And just for the record, you guys are NOT helping my ego - but I'll try to remember I can't force-choke any of my enemies, just the same. ;)
Ok, those of you who also got Christmas or Hanukkah gifts: what was your favorite? How many of you got crafting tools and/or Dremels? Eh? [eyebrow waggle] Any corsets or geeky jewelry? How about video games? Details, people: I NEED DETAILS.
PS - I'm playing Deathspank: The Baconing this weekend. It's hilarious and awesome. Especially since you can set the level to Mega Wimp so you don't die all the time and get frustrated and throw your wireless controller across the room. Not that *I* would EVER...
