Darth Fairy Princess

Darth Vader is not necessarily the character of choice for little girls who want to dress up. Darth Fairy might still be in that same category, but it’s awesome nonetheless.

Apparently there is a Dragon*Con parade each year, and this little one wanted to go dressed as Darth Fairy. Check out the whole story of Darth Fairy’s creation here at Booturtle. Take the jump for some more great photos. (more…)

Voyage of the Dawn Treader Trailer

Whether you’re in to the Narnia series written by C.S. Lewis for religious references or just for the breathtaking story, I think we can safely agree that the next movie is definitely on our collective to-do lists.

Online Communities

This will be one of the few instances where justifying linking to another webcomic will be easy for me, and therefore one of the few times I’ll do it. Randall Munroe, the author of the fantastic XKCD, once drew a map of online communities. Today, he has drawn a new map, and it is simply amazing.

There will be a print of the map which you can find on the XKCD store, but I won’t do any more linking there.
