This Week In Geeky Ladies’ Footwear
Ladies, this is your week in feet.
You don’t really have to be a design geek to love these Pantone-colored Louboutin concept heels, but you’d have to be a sadist to hope they never exist. For now, the shoes are just mock-ups, but designer Christian Goldemann hopes to unite Pantone Universe and Christian Louboutin to make them a real thing. Given that Pantone currently work with Sephora to offer eyeshadow, lip gloss, nail polish and eyeliner, these shoes don’t seem like a huge leap for the company.
For those who have something less theoretical in mind, these comic book heels are really real and purchasable, which is great because they’re awesome. Whether you wear heels or not, you have to admit that they’re good-looking, and when presented with so many run-of-the-mill black and nude pumps, it’s nice to have the option of a print and detailing to set your tootsies apart from the crowd.
You can get the Scott Pilgrim shoes and Grimm Fairy Tales heels from HeroComicAccessories on Etsy. If you’re not into walking around balanced on a tiny peg all day, there are also Wonder Woman and Superman ballet flats available.
And lastly, though these are probably not in stock, Beauty for the Geek has a whole stunning collection of custom Star Wars shoes in a variety of height and designs.

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF: WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?
Hello, I’m Wesley Chu. I’m a member of the Screen Actors Guild and a former stunt man, specializing in being the token Asian male. In other words, I play roles like businessman, doctor, computer geek, and getting my ass kicked. I’m good at that last one.
I get the token role because in every commercial with a group of guys, there always needs to be a token me alongside a token white guy, black guy, Latino guy, fat guy…etc. Do I mind? Nah, being token is my bread and butter.
Oh, I also wrote a book. My debut novel, The Lives of Tao, from Angry Robot Books, came out two days ago. By the way, this Saturday May 4th, I have a release party. If you’re within three hundred miles of Chicago, you should come. You don’t have to buy my book, but at least party with me.
I am an author. I mainly write dark fantasy, but also scifi, short stories, and sometimes horror. I mix other elements into my work, at times bending away from believability in order to keep my reader’s self-rationalization in check. I like to teach lessons in the stories I tell, using allegory, symbolism, and allusion. Most of my heroes tend to be female, but I do not fail to include strong male characters as well. My stories are violent, whether through personal altercations or descriptive renditions of war. They are not for the faint of heart, but they aren’t exactly Clive Barker, either. (I’d say it’s pretty balanced.) trista digiuseppi Also, romance plays a bit of a role in my books, because what is an adventure without it? An adventure may lead a hero to agony, dismemberment, or death, but I cannot deny my characters their emotional pursuits. I love to build worlds and then destroy them, and I love forcing characters to change and grow – or die trying.
I tend to write stand-alone novels, wrapped up in their own, isolated mythologies. My favorite type of book is the kind I can pick up without having to know the fifteen other novels preceding it.
Recently, Six Letter Press published my novel “Nails Jane” – check Amazon for reviews. Purchase information for Nails Jane (paperback and ebook) is located here. Also, browse this site for free short stories and free chapters of Nails Jane.
Currently: I just finished writing a second novel. It is under wraps and publication date is TBA. I have begun working on my third novel, as well as an anthology side project. There is much to come for my readers, so please sit tight and keep watch for updates.
Interests include: dark fantasy books/anthologies/graphic novels, open world RPG video games (e.g. dragon age, elder scrolls), hiking/kayaking, sushi, felines, Rasputina, Green Day, Chopin, Beethoven, Star Trek, offbeat/inappropriate humor, knives, and lipgloss. (Also, for some reason, I know too much about xenomorphs.)
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts and studied psychology, writing, studio art, and anthropology. I worked for ten years as a public school aid, teaching disabled children how to read and write. My experience has lent itself to my writing style and deep fascination with mythology, science, neologism, sketching, and the overall human condition. I often incorporate such elements into my work.
Interesting fact: I publish under my maiden name. It’s almost like my former identity is now my pseudonym.
For me, writing is a full time job. I dedicate three to five hours every Monday through Friday, penning my novels.
