My birthday present to you…a Batgirl photoshoot!

HNG Batgirl comic

Nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh – BATGIRL!

Tomorrow is my birthday (don’t even bother asking, I’m not going to tell you how old I am) so I decided to give YOU, my awesome readers, a gift for sticking with me for the past year and a half.

I wrote a little story to go along with the pictures…sort of a pseudo-comic if you will.  I hope you enjoy it.

Oh, and please feel free to thank me for putting my friend into my Slave Leia costume.  I figured that if I have to rescue a damsel in distress, she might as well be scantily clad and amazingly hot.  Just looking out for you my friends.

Anyhooters, here goes:

The night is dark. Dark and dangerous. A lone heroine stalks the night keeping an eye out for trouble.


She climbs over the rooftops, lithe and agile. She watches and waits.



A scream tears through the silence.  Someone is in trouble!


Oh no! A thug has a helpless damsel in distress in his grips!



The thug eyes her skeptically. He doesn’t see her as a threat. He has made a horrible mistake.


She shows him her mean right hook!



The thug is stunned and doesn’t see it coming when she plants her totally practical stiletto boot square in his chest!


HNG prevails. 


The streets are safe once again.  At least for now…


Don’t worry fair maiden, HNG will always be here to keep you safe.


To the victor goes the spoils…wait…I mean, allow me to escort you home fair maiden…


HNG takes to the rooftops once more.



A Superhero’s work is never done.


Bad guys beware: she’ll be watching. And waiting. And looking hot while doing it so don’t get any ideas buster.


A HUGE thank you to Jon Upson for taking such amazing pictures (check out his website here) and to Darcy and Joy for joining in on the HNG shenanigans (as Jon would say).

HNG Turns One!

It’s hard to believe that it has been exactly one year since I embarked on this nerdy venture!  I didn’t think it would go beyond my friends and family but the blog now has fans all over the world.  I’m more than a bit flabbergasted by the whole thing.  Hopefully it continues to grow because I’m having way too much fun to stop now!

In honor of Hot Nerd Girl’s one year anniversary, I thought it would be fun to look back at some of the all star blogs from the past year.


 Carrie Fisher

The 10 Hottest Babes of Sci-Fi post I wrote back on December 7, 2010 has consistently been the top rated post.   This doesn’t surprise me one bit.  Hot chicks are pretty much universally loved by all and I’m convinced that the world would be a much more peaceful place if it was run by beautiful women.  Unless men started fighting over them….then maybe not so much.  Ok, maybe scrap that whole theory.  The point is, hot girls with geek cred rule.


 Quadruple Facepalm with Hot Nerd Girl

The Facepalm Progression was little more than a quick joke meant only for the facebook page when I first introduced it this past February.  My Mom didn’t get it so I added the very well-known Picard “facepalm” and “double facepalm” pictures and put the full progression on the blog.  It got some chuckles and then one day it exploded in Google land and is now the top source of internet traffic to the blog.  Whudda thunk??



There are a few different ways I could have gauged this but ultimately I went with the one that got the most attention when I posted it in May.  It got quite a few comments both on facebook and on the blog and was shared on several other websites.  It also happened to be my favorite movie of the year thus far and the one I probably geeked out about the most.  It was, of course, my favorite horny dude, Thor.  Ye Gods I heart him so much.

My birthday last February 2nd was full of win!  I got all kinds of Star Trek-related goodies but one in particular came as a complete and total shock.  One of my earliest posts was written on September 8, 2010 and recounted the time I met Manu Intiraymi at a Star Trek Convention in San Francisco in 2002.  Well, Manu found that blog.  On my birthday.  Seriously. Best. Birthday. Present. Ever.  We corresponded via email and agreed I’d get a follow up interview which I have yet to take him up on (gotta get on that!)


The photo shoots are always a hit.  I’ve done a lot of mini shoots for various posts with the outtakes ending up on facebook.  The three big shoots were Halloween (TOS uniform), Slave Leia, and Lucky 13 (aka Superman undies).  I tallied up the votes for the next photo shoot and Xena was the clear winner.  I’ve received all the donations for the costume but my move to San Diego put the shoot on hold for a bit.  Once I’m (finally!) all settled in, I’ll get that all set up so look for those pictures in the next couple of months!
