Being a grown up geek is hard. If you’re a geek who has managed to survive past high school and college and out here into the terrifying world that is “adulthood,” you’ve got a pretty good idea what I’m talking about. Liking comics and TV shows and movies is just fine when you’re a kid, but once you pass a certain age, you’re suddenly very aware of the fact that not everyone enjoys these things to the extent that you do, and, especially at your work place, you get the feeling everyone thinks you’re immature because of it.
Well Happy Tumbling Tuesday! This week we have an awesome interview with the chicks behind FanGirl Quest.

I’m glad that there are designers like Danielle Ward of Little Petal that want to push the envelope of geeky fashion, especially for women. True, there are tons of geeky fashion for women but compared to the guys selection, it really pales in comparison. Especially, when most women’s geeky inspired clothing usually involves hearts and sparkles.
