Maria Popova, at Brain Pickings, happened upon a treasure trove of early NASA (and its airplane-only predecessor NACA) archive photos. They are really something. From biplanes to the Mercury capsule, pre-1950 aeronautics seemed to live by the motto of “If we build it, then we can go there.” That’s a sentiment we could use a bit more of.
Shirts. Shirts for you. For us. Curated by me. By WE LOVE FINE. They actually went for that one. Can you believe it? Because I can not.
I’m donating my curation commission to FUTURES WITHOUT VIOLENCE which works to end violence against women and children around the world. Sales online of these shirts (and whatever follows) or at shows where WE LOVE FINE are set up — ANY sales of these things — money goes to FWV.
My friends and I went to Geek Girl Con last year as the Teen Titans. We had such an amazing time! Its a fairly new Con, so it was pretty small, but it was fun to just hang out and be nerds with everyone. People loved our cosplays, it was so exciting. We even entered the costume contest, which is something I’d never have the guts to do.
When I went to Sakura-con this year, I discovered that they had used our picture for the business cards, and we were so excited.
Geek Girl Con is in Seattle, on October 19th and 20th this year, so I encourage anyone who can come to do so, because it’s a fantastic con. :)
