Geeks Do it Better # 2


a. k.a. the shelter of my geekness, 'cause "your week can't be weak, if you think like a geek" 

=το καταφύγιο των geeky σκέψεών μου, γιατί "αν σαν geek περνάς την μέρα, όλα είναι πιο ωραία"


For Horror Vacui (latin for " fear of empty space"), the Italian photographer Federico Chiesa imagined how evil film characters would look like if they were "still alive", including Darth Vader, Jason Voorhees and more. Carolina Trotta provided special effects, makeup artistry and styling for the project. [via: Behance]


By the way, in promotional preparation for the release of Peter Jackson's next film The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, a prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy, a giant Gollum sculpture has been installed at New Zealand's Wellington Airport. Creepily nice as always, trying to reach his oh so "juicy sweet fishes" over the cafeteria of the airport.

Here you can watch its installation too.  [via: The One Ring and The Design Air]


In the mood of Hobbit, we go to "a place to drink, a place to meet, a place to rest your hairy feet", a pub inspired by the beloved Lord of the Rings and Hobbit series. It may may have sounded like a silly pipe dream but it's true. Located at Hobbiton near Matamata, The Green Dragon bar awaits for us to buy these tickets for Australia/ New Zealand as soon as possible. 'Cause if not now, then when? [via: Noosa News]


I wish you a nice and geeky week! :)

She founded In Whirl of Inspiration, back in 2011 when she was (just) a biology student, in the island of Crete. In Whirl of Inspiration started as a creative and writing outlet for when studying molecules, became too monotonous. Recently, she started writing a children book and a not-so-children's book about the civil war in Greece.

Thank you so much for reading!
