When I see rings like the one below, it really makes me wish that I could stand to wear rings.  Anybody who knows me knows that I don’t like to have anything on my fingers.  It doesn’t feel comfortable for me and it just seems like it is getting in the way.  However, the main reason why I don’t wear any kind of ring and never will is because I have a fear that once I put it on, I will never be able to get it off.  I guess I have just seen too many people with rings that have had their fingers fatten up to the point that they couldn’t take the ring off if they wanted to and I don’t want to be one of those people.  But, just because I will never wear a ring, doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate cool ones when I see them and this Star Trek engagement ring is definitely one of the coolest ones I have seen!

This stunning Star Trek inspired ring was made by the very talented jewelry designer Paul Michael of Paul Michael Designs.  And, if you happen to be looking for that perfect ring to propose to that special Star Trek fan in your life, you are in luck because this ring is available for sale!

You can get this awesome Star Trek engagement ring over on Etsy for as little as $595.  Of course, depending on your choice of metal used and whether you want a diamond or topaz stone, it can go as high as $3,890.

If you decide to boldly go and propose with this awesome ring, send some pictures to us because we would love to share your story!

Considering the fact that I have dozens of Doctor Who t-shirts (right now I am wearing one with Super Mario trying to steal the plunger thing off of a Dalek), it is a little odd that I don’t have any featuring the War Doctor.  I suppose that could be because until now, I don’t think I have seen any shirts with the War Doctor on it.  Well, if you are like me and happen to be in desperate need of a t-shirt featuring Grandad, I have stumbled upon the perfect shirt for you!

The folks over at Hot Topic are selling this War Doctor Timey Wimey? t-shirt for just $16.40 which is 20% off of the normal $20.50 thanks to a site wide 20% off sale going on right now.  So unless you like paying more for what you buy, I’d pick this shirt up now before the sale ends!

Its unfortunate that we didn’t get to see more of John Hurt’s Doctor because I rather liked him in the 50th anniversary special.  I think he did a great job with it.  However, if I had my choice of which Doctor would get more episodes, I’d really like to see more of Paul McGann because I think I could really like him.  That leads me to the question, which Doctor do you wish we got to see more of?  Let me know in the comments below!

Some of my favorite people are those who love something so much that they aren’t afraid to show it in what they wear.  That kind of goes without saying on a blog called Fanboy Fashion but sometimes it can be helpful to point out the obvious.  Of course it would be kind of silly if I wasn’t one of these people myself!  I am one of those people about many things ranging from retro video game consoles to Battlestar Galactica.  Well, without a doubt, the franchise I demonstrate my love for the most with the things I wear is Doctor Who.  Considering I am wearing one of my dozens (yes, dozens!) of Doctor Who shirts while I am writing this should give you an idea for just how much I love it.

Are you a big Doctor Who enthusiast like I am?  If so, you should definitely be sporting one of these Whovian t-shirts!

The fantastic folks over at TShirtBordello are selling this cool Whovian t-shirt for just $14.99 (more for bigger sizes)!  It features all kinds of iconic Doctor Who related aliens and items ranging from the TARDIS and Sonic Screwdriver (because what Whovian shirt would be complete without them) to K-9 and the Pandorica!  This shirt is sure to bring back a ton of fond Doctor Who memories for any Whovian that sees it!

Speaking of Whovians that see this shirt, I have this shirt myself and wear it often and whenever I run into a Doctor Who fan in a restaurant or at the gas station or wherever, they are always complimenting me on the fantastic shirt so I can say with confidence that this shirt will bring you a lot of attention from fellow Whovians!

Have you ever wanted to go out on the town looking like the TARDIS?  Well, if you are a woman or at least a cross dressing dude, now you can!  Who says the only time you can wear something like this is at a convention?!  This TARDIS dress is perfect for wearing to almost anything from a date to a wedding.  Well, perhaps I wouldn’t advise wearing it to a wedding because unless you are the bride, you will probably attract more attention than the bride with a dress like this and taking the spotlight away from the bride on her wedding day is not the smartest idea.  However, if you are going to a Doctor Who themed wedding, I’d still say go for it!  Actually, the thought of all of the brides maids wearing TARDIS dresses sounds like a pretty cool idea!  Anyway…

The cool geeks over at ThinkGeek are selling this cute TARDIS A-line dress for just $39.99.  Also, if you can find a little something else there to buy, you can get 10% off your order of $40 or more this weekend with the coupon code ‘CLIPPY’ (Good thru 4/6/14).  This dress is 100% cotton, machine washable and made in the good ol’ USA instead of by kids in China.  Don’t forget to check the size chart too if you want to make sure you get the size of dress that best fits you.

I think if you really want to complete the outfit, the best way you can do that with some exploding TARDIS heels.  However, I should note that my sense of fashion sucks so perhaps I’m not the person you should be looking to when it comes to what shoes match this dress.  Still, I like the idea.

It hasn’t been easy, but lately I have cut back quite a bit on the number of t-shirts I buy because I have already outgrown my closet and have a stack of shirts as tall as my ceiling so the last thing I need is more shirts.  However, when I come across cool Doctor Who shirts like the ones below, I just can’t fight that temptation.  The Let’s Play shirt isn’t really my style as I am not much of one for the cartoony look but I rather like the selfie shirt that is a play on the famous Oscar selfie.

The awesome folks over at TeeFury are doing one of their twofury sales where they put two shirts against each other and today they are selling these cool Doctor Selfie and Let’s Play Doctor t-shirts for just $11.

Currently, the selfie shirt appears to be outselling the other shirt by around 2:1 so it looks like I’m not the only one who prefers it.  If you get one or both of these shirts, let us know in the comments below which one you bought.  I’m always interested in knowing what my readers like so I know what to post more of in the future.

Its been quite a while since I have posted some cool fingernail art so when I was browsing reddit and came across this amazing Star Trek: The Next Generation fingernail art, I knew I had to post about it!  I’ve always preferred the Deep Space Nine uniforms but I think these actually look better as fingernail art than DS9 uniforms would.  However, I’d still like to see some DS9 fingernail art if anybody out there is up to the challenge.  But, until somebody does that, lets talk about this awesome TNG fingernail art!

This amazing Star Trek: The Next Generation uniform nail art was done by reddit user feelslikeawoman.  While I think she did a heck of a job with this nail art, I think I am most impressed by the fact that those are real nails rather than fake ones.  I think she must have hit the genetic fingernail lottery!  I can’t say that long nails are my thing but I can certainly appreciate how rare it is for somebody to be able to have natural nails that can get that long.

I don’t watch Star Trek: The Next Generation as often as I should as at most I will watch 2 or 3 episodes a week when it is on BBC America on Saturday afternoons, but I still love the show (DS9 is my favorite) and Geordi La Forge is definitely one of my favorite characters.  Knowing how popular he is and how iconic his VISOR has become, I had a feeling you guys would flip out over this awesome Geordi La Forge VISOR ring I stumbled across yesterday.

Etsy seller eyephoriadesign is selling this fantastic TNG inspired Geordi La Forge VISOR ring for just $69.99!  The ring is made of sterling silver with 24K gold plated accents and apparently it is made using some sort of 3D printing technology.

However, if dollars isn’t how you want to pay, the seller also accepts Bitcoin and offers a 5% discount when paying with it.  Normally I probably wouldn’t mention something like that but this is the first time I have ever seen an Etsy seller accept Bitcoin as payment.

If you are looking for a new ring and you happen to be a big Star Trek: TNG fan, then this is the ring you have been looking for!

I’m starting to think that I am going to have to find a second job soon to be able to afford building an addition on to my house just to house all of my Doctor Who shirts and days like today where there are two fantstic Who tees on sale aren’t helping matters any!  I have already filled up my closet and have a stack of t-shirts that reaches to my ceiling so I am to the point that I could go for months without doing laundry thanks to these t-shirt sales but when there are awesome shirts like these, I can’t help but buy them!  Perhaps I need to check myself into t-shirt addicts anonymous.  However, that won’t be today because I feel the need to own both of these shirts and I think you should too!

The awesome folks at TeeFury are doing another one of their Twofury sales where they put two shirts in competition with each other for the day and see which one sells the most.  Today, they are selling two awesome Doctor Who shirts, one called ‘See You In Our Dreams’ by Joshmirm and the other called Bad Wolf by artist zerobraint for just $11 today only!  And yes, that is an affiliate link so we get credit for sending you to them which is how we can afford to keep things running here at Fanboy Fashion.

Whether you are a fan of the 10th Doctor or Rose Tyler, you will love these shirts and of course they both have the TARDIS on them because no Doctor Who shirt would be complete without it.

Which one will you be buying or will you buy both?  Bad Wolf is currently winning as of the time I am writing this but I have no doubt the Tennant fans can pull though and claim victory for the other shirt if they really want to show their love for the 10th Doctor.

If you ever looked at galleries of pictures taken from events like Comic Con or pretty much any nerdy conventions these days, you are bound to see some girls dressed up as either a TARDIS or Dalek.  The last sci-fi convention I went to I can distinctly remember seeing at least two little girls dressed as a TARDIS.  Well, while it is pretty common these days to see girls sporting some cool TARDIS or Dalek dresses, this is the first time I have ever seen both combined into one fantastic dress!

Cosplayer BewitchedRaven from Atlanta Georgia is the girl sporting this awesome TARDIS/Dalek hybrid dress.  I’d say she did an excellent job in creating it because it looks great!  At first, I thought the idea of a hybrid dress like that might look a little strange but with the colors and patterns she chose, I think it looks really good!  It almost has a bit of a Victorian/steampunk feel to it.  Speaking of good things, the great photography was taken by CONography.

It has been a while since I have set down and watched my way through Battlestar Galactica so I have a feeling that this weekend might involve a big BSG marathon for me but even though it has been a long time since I have watched the show, I still regularly wear one of my half dozen or so Battlestar Galactica shirts.  Well, it looks like I will be adding one more shirt to that collection thanks to this awesome shirt below that is on sale today!

The fraking awesome folks over at TeeFury are selling this cool Battlestar Galactica shirt called Colonial Fighter for just $11 today only!  This design comes from CoD Designs and I think they did a pretty good job with it!  If you are a Starbuck fan, this is definitely a must have t-shirt!

The shirt comes in black, navy or charcoal so you have some options to choose from.  Personally, while I am kind of fond of the charcoal, I think I am going to go with the black because it makes the design stand out a little more.

Whether you are a big BSG fan or just know someone who is that you need a present for, this is the shirt you need to buy!

So say we all!
