Did you ever have difficult appreciating the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Calendar, knowing that the models involved would never likely talk to you in real life, and even if they did that you’d have nothing in common? Gee, maybe somebody could get together the capital to come up with a cool alternative…
Oh, right. You did. The most funded calendar project ever on Kickstarter, 2013’s “Women of Geekdom” Calendar is now a reality. Featuring Satine Phoenix, Dodger Lawson, Nicole Jekich, Sandy Bergeron, Jenna Busch, Stormy Piazza, Misti Dawn, Christina Janke, Dash Williams, Laura Rosado and the Nerdist Channel’s own Just Cos host Chloe Dykstra, this is a project celebrating ladies with geeky interests from all walks of life: models, actresses, writers, journalists, artists, businesswomen and more. A portion of the proceeds will be going to the Wayne Foundation, which isn’t just a cool Batman-sounding name – it’s also a charitable group with the goal of ending sex trafficking.
The calendar costs $30, but Nerdist readers can get $5 off by entering the code WOG2012NERDIST on the website. [Note: In order to use the coupon, customers will have to use the check out cart in the system. If they click directly on “pay with Paypal” without entering their information first, the option will never appear.] The current cover is for the first “Kickstarter” printing only – subsequent printings will have an alternate cover.
But enough with the words – if pictures are truly worth a thousand of each, we have an epic ahead, with an exclusive series of behind-the-scenes images and alternate takes, as well as the first-edition cover. Behold. Then buy if you wish at http://www.womenofgeekdom.com
