The Mary Sue’s Most Looked At Posts of 2013

On Tuesday we showed you our most commented on articles of 2013. It was a post full of the most contentious subjects in geekdom today: online and convention harassment, white washing, and, of course, the casting of Wonder Woman in a major movie adaptation.

But chatter is only one way to know that a post grabbed a lot of attention. There’s also views! So here are our 2013 posts that were seen by the most eyeballs. Your eyeballs.


The Future Is Now!

The Invisible Bike Helmet, Yet Another Awesome Invention by Ladies

Swedish industrial designers Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin have created head protection for cyclists that isn’t bulky, uncomfortable, or unsightly – in fact, it doesn’t even look like it’s there at all. Learn more by watching this short documentary or going to their website.

Now You Can Have Your Favorite Geek Icons Sculpted Out of Paper

Graphic designer Alia Syed makes these elaborate sculptures by gluing down dozens of thin strips of paper in swirls and patterns (a technique called quilling). See more, or even get a custom design, at her Etsy shop.

Doctor Who, a Part of This Balanced Breakfast

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but in nine hundred years of time and space the Doctor’s never met a meal that wasn’t important before. Phil Postma is the mind behind these Doctor Who breakfast cereals, and I’m guessing there’s at least one in here that you’d eat no matter how much sugar was in each serving.

Nerd Baby Nurseries, Our Secret Weakness

Look at that! Plush strawberries to go with a Firefly themed nursery set! For somebody who is extremely uncomfortable around little kids, I sure like looking at pictures of nerdy baby nurseries.

Then again, I also have a Batman lamp from Kids Pottery barn above my bed, so there’s that.


In Which We Make A Terrible Pun

This Rocking Chair Will Knit a Nice, Warm Hat For You While You Chill [VIDEO]

ECAL Low-Tech Factory/Rocking-Knit from ECAL on Vimeo.

This rocking chair, designed by University of Art and Design Lausanne students Damien Ludi and Colin Peillex, can also knit hats. Beanies, specifically. The rocking motion of the chair activates a knitting mechanism at the top, which uses gears to… look, the design specifics aren’t that important here. Just watch the video. It’s mesmerizing. Also, Bill Murray approves.

These Handmade Doctor Who Purses Will Make You the Talk of Your Next Episode-Watching Party

Why carry around a boring old non-sci-fi purse when you can keep your bits and bobs in a felt Dalek? Honestly, it’s a no-brainer. Etsy user krukrustudio has made our geek hearts go pitter-patter with this pair of handmade bags in the shape of a Dalek and the TARDIS. Both bags are made from felt with an adjustable strap and are fully lined with metallic grey material (ooh, space-y)… and no, the TARDIS bag is not bigger on the inside. (Don’t roll your eyes at me, you fail to make that joke and they take away your Geek Card!)

They’re each approximately a foot tall with lots of room to hold your psychic paper, an emergency stock of Jelly Babies, a banana, a spare bow tie, etc. Also for sale is a TARDIS-shaped messenger bag big enough for a 14″ laptop (or even more Jelly Babies) and, for the Inspector Spacetime-inclined or those who maybe want to go a bit more general with their Anglophilia, a red phone booth bag.

Nerdy Kids Room of the Day: Bedroom Becomes All of Legend of Zelda

Asking your toddler to move their bedroom to accomodate a new family arrival can be tricky enough. But what do you do when the nursery was a tricked out Mario themed room? The couple behind Dork on a Dime found themselves in just that situation, and came up with the obvious solution: make your little girl’s new room into everything from Zelda. It’s got a bunk bed that leads to Lon Lon Ranch. And that’s just the start.
