Nerdy Kickstarters!

Nerdy Kickstarters!

By: Terra Olsen

Kickstarter has proven to be a great way to fund awesome ideas into reality. But there are soooo many different Kickstarters, it can be hard to pick which one(s) to support. So I decided to feature a few awesome and nerdy Kickstarters I think you should consider backing:

Nerdy Candles: For Nerds

Started by the wife/husband owned Frostbeard Studios, this Kickstarter will beautify and nerdify your home! They make handcrafted candles inspired by video games, movies, and comics! Their candles display a fun mashup of traditional craftsmanship and nerd culture. Simply put, their candles and their containers are just plain amazing, including this Bob-omb candle/container: 

“Bob-omb — A cute, little walking bomb that explodes… with refreshingly clean, slightly smoky scent.”

They also have candles with miniatures, like this Carbonite candle with a lil’ Han Solo inside it!

 So support them and get your hands on a nerdtastic candle! Please also check out their etsy.

Broodhollow Book 1: Curious Little Thing

Local comic creator, Kris Straub, started the Broodhollow Kickstarter in an effort to bring his web-series to physical form. If you’re not reading Broodhollow yet, I highly recommend it! It is one of my new favorite webcomics, so I was delighted to not only  help this talented webcartoonist but also get a get physical book (and other cool goodies) in the process! Although it is a horror comic, the old-timey art helps it reads more like an adventure comic (which I like). So check it out and help back the project!

Espionage Cosmetics “NAILED IT!”

For those into nerdy makeup, this is the Kickstarter for you! Espionage Cosmetics has created NAILED IT, a line of nerdy nail art inspired by a wide variety of fandoms. So far there are eight nerd-inspired designs, which are printed on self-adhesive nail wraps that can be filed to a custom fit (they might make up to 24 designs!). Espionage Cosmetics is a small, woman-owned business based in Tacoma, Washington, creating makeup for nerds, by nerds. So send some local love and help them complete their mission!
