Go Bold

30 Jan

You can tell by my hair that I don’t like to be subtle in my appearance. This sometimes applies to the jewelry I wear as well. I like all kinds of jewelry, but occasionally, I want something that makes a statement. Fortunately, if you feel the same way, there are many artists out there that create such pieces. Prepare to be noticed!

Owl’s Birthday by ethe

Tomorrow is my birthday, so I thought it would be fitting to find the coolest geek party favors for your own get-together, birthday, or wedding. My birthdays are usually pretty low-key, and were even when I was a kid (we saved the big party for Halloween), but if you plan on surprising someone with a geeky party, you might want some of these awesome items:

Winter Is Coming

Game of Thrones, Winter is Coming – coffee mug cup cozy by KnitnutbyJL

The weather is still relatively mild here in Nevada, but winter is just around the corner. In anticipation of this, I’ve found a collection of comfy, warm, and most importantly – geeky – items to keep you cozy while you hibernate in the Basement.

Everyone needs a pair of slippers. But you can go geeky without wearing those fuzzy monsters that look like they’re eating your feet. The slippers below are super cute and you could probably even go to the store with them without looking like you just rolled out of bed.

Art for a Cause

19 Sep

Many times, art is more than just something made to look pretty. It can be an expression and reflection of the artist, created to send a message, or made to help a cause the artist is passionate about. Mom’s Basement has it’s own donation shop, and I’ve found many generous artists on Etsy and DeviantART creating items for selfless causes. Not only do they offer awesome, geeky art for purchase, but they help you feel good about yourself at the same time.

Last year, Mom’s Basement raised $150 for Child’s Play, a gaming industry charity devoted to providing consoles, games, books, toys and other entertainment to hospitalized children. The Mom’s Basement Charity store on Etsy is open for the holiday season once again and accepts dollar donations as well as offering awesome geek merchandise for charity.  It’s our hope to raise more money this year!  If you are interested in donating your handmade geeky items, check out this thread on the Mom’s Basement team.

Basement dweller SliceofOrange makes buttons and magnets featuring your favorite video game and anime characters. Also available are adorable cat pins in different breeds – the total price of each is donated to Forgotten Ones Cat Rescue in Toronto, ON. Visit SliceofOrange to see all the cute kitties available.

Kick Up Your Easter With Kawaii-Inspired Accessories!

3 Apr

It’s that time of year again when the Easter Bunny has flooded the shelves of every store with every shade of pastel and sugary treat you can imagine. Sometimes it can be a little bit much. Even though there is an abundance of cute everywhere we turn, some cuteness is too awesome to ignore (and it doesn’t necessarily have to have anything to do with the Easter Bunny). The kawaii fashion in general is about just what it’s name means, an overload of adorable. While cute girly fashion can be a ton of fun there most certainly can be too much of a good thing.

When people think of kawaii the first thing that comes to mind is often times a barrage of plush, pastels, petticoats, and lace.

As fun as going all out for the look can be, it’s not always the most functional thing, especially in the summer months; that many layers equal heat stroke in the Texas sun. It also may not fit into a school or work dress code very well. But fear not my kawaii loving darlings there are many ways to work the look into any wardrobe.
