Giveaway: London Fashion in the 1980s

Wished you’d been around to go full-on Boy George (whether boy or girl) and attend club/catwalk Blitz in the ’80s? Well, unfortunately I don’t have access to a time-travelling telephone box but I do have two complimentary tickets to the V&A’s rad and retro exhibition, ‘Club to Catwalk: London Fashion in the 1980s’.

Due to close on 16 February, the exhibition explores the creative explosion of London fashion in the 1980s, showcasing more than 85 outfits from a period where club culture, music and couture combined with astonishing results. The major exhibition at the V&A museum of art and design features bold and fashion-forward looks by the most experimental young designers of the decade Calvin Harris deemed ‘acceptable’, including Betty Jackson, Katharine Hamnett, Wendy Dagworthy and John Galliano.

To be in with a chance of winning two tickets to the exhibition, simply head over to my Twitter page @nicetogeekyou, RT the comp and follow. Easy, right? Now VOGUE.

Here’s to a Geeky 2014

This geek’s been hibernating.

Since my last post, the geek landscape has gone through some significant changes: we’ve witnessed the launch of not one but two next-gen consoles (and I own neither, tut), Doctor Who regenerating and celebrating his big birthday (not in that order), Buffy’s debut on Twitter (@TheRealSMG if you didn’t already know), and Bilbo swapping Gollum for Smaug in the second ‘Hobbit’ movie.

Because that’s just the tip of the geeky iceberg, I feel like it’s time I got on top of all the latest genre news and pop culture shake-ups by returning to the blog and giving you all the latest in geek.

This week, I’ll be running down the 14 things to be excited about in 2014 from movies, games, books, music & more. However, to see in the New Year, I’m happy to announce my first prize giveaway. Simply head over to my Twitter page (@nicetogeekyou), follow and retweet, and while you’re there feel free to tell me the top geeky thing you’re excited about this year – one lucky winner will be selected at random and win a hardback copy of ‘Batman: The World of the Dark Knight’ from Penguin Books.

Holy cow, Batman!
