We’re still busy applying sparkly eyeliner to the site but in the meantime, you can:
- Read an excerpt from The Geek Girl’s Guide to Cheerleading.
- Vote in our poll of best geeky spring break destinations.
- Check out Speechless, Charity’s free short story about what happens when you keep quiet, and what happens when you don’t. While you’re there, enter our Speechless contest to win a giftcard from Starbucks!
And, since every cheerleader needs a team, we thought you might like to meet a couple members of ours. Check out the posts below for profiles on the geeks behind the scenes who helped us get up and running.
Thanks one and all. We couldn’t have done it without you!

It’s spring (sort of) and a geek girl’s fancy turns to thoughts of … prom (maybe). There’s so much to consider. If you don’t have a boyfriend, will you go solo? With a friend/friends? Or will you rely on your aunt who knows a nice boy who works at the shoe store she’d like to introduce you to? If you already have a boyfriend – can you convince him that wearing a Star Wars Stormtrooper costume to the dance would be so not cool?
Once you get your companion situation straightened out, it’s time to think about The Dress. Again, there is much to consider. Should you go with sexy or sweet? Short or long? Strapless or fully supported?
We here at Geek Girls have spent countless hours viewing prom dresses online. (It is one of our favorite pastimes; Charity claims this is “research.” We know better.).
We know there are thousands of websites that will help you match a dress to your body type, suggest the perfect color for your skin tone, and even configure your dress style based on your personality.
Geek girls don’t want to be redundant so we’ll offer you a different tip: If you’ve got Dasani taste but you’re on a tap water budget, consider going used. Or pre-worn. (That sounds better, right?)
Shop your local resale stores, watch the classified ads in your newspaper, or ask your friend who has three older sisters. There are beautiful dresses out there that can be purchased for a fraction of their original cost, leaving you money left over for cute shoes or matching iPod earbuds (in case your school hires a lame DJ).
Here are just a few of the dresses available from Darcy’s local craigslist:
A Word of Warning: We think it may be more than coincidence that so many girls selling prom dresses are displayed without heads. Is there some kind of serial prom dress stealer/slasher on the loose? PLEASE USE CAUTION!
