Sorry that the pinups are a little late, gang. For some reason I thought today was June 30.
In related news, I don’t know how to read a calendar.
And just to remind you, I’m doing a Q&A! Ask me anything you want to know about my comedy urban fantasy series, future book projects, personal things about myself, writing, my cat, general advice… whatever. I’m answering any and all questions unless they’re spoilers of the next Kari Hunter book. Just post them in the comment section below last week’s post, Tweet me, post it on my Facebook page, or send me a note through my contact box in the sidebar.
I couldn’t resist some early questions on Twitter.
Someone even asked me for dinner recommendations! You better believe I delivered.
Questions are due to me by July 5 and the Q&A list will be posted here on the site July 8. So ask away!
Alright now, let’s get down to brass tacks. You came here for hunks and hotties and that’s what you’re going to get!
In case this is your first time joining us for the Sci-Fi Pinups, this is the monthly segment that’s actually monthly when I’m not calendar-inept, and we feature science fiction and fantasy babes that normally don’t get the recognition they deserve. As with all leading ladies and gents, remember—they’re too hot to handle, so look but don’t touch.
Because licking your computer monitor is nasty. Seriously, when was the last time you wiped this off?
And now say hello to our pinups!
Mr. June comes from outer space in the far, far future… where, apparently, they’ve lost the technology to create hair gel. He’s the product of a long breeding program which makes him the sexiest guy on his planet and is the envy of levitating, skin-fungus-plagued rulers everywhere. Mr. June is virile. He’s rich. He’s psychotic. He likes to be shirtless. He’s also royalty, which puts him in control of many things. Just not the spice.
Feyd-Rautha from Dune!
Mr. June’s turn-ons include metal underpants, going shirtless, and the spice. Turn-offs are House Atreides, the Kwisatz Haderach, and pants.
Here’s a little fan-made video of Feyd. It cracked me up so I must include it:
Should you take Mr. June out for a night on the town, bring a hat. Seriously. Dat hair.
And now for our leading lady!
I hope you can keep up with Miss June because she’s got legs and she knows how to use ’em. As a full-time professional competitive eater and part-time ghost hunter, she’s always on the go, never stopping. And I mean that quite literally. She never stops. Though she’s running her legs and her mouth 24/7, she always looks fine in the big red bow atop her bald head and matching red lipstick. What a lady! She is…
…Ms. Pac-Man from… You know what? If you don’t know who Ms. Pac-Man is, you’ve been living under a rock. She’s awesome. That’s who she is.
Miss June’s turn-ons include cherries, strawberries, oranges, pretzels, apples, pears, and bananas. Turn-offs are the nights Pac-Man won’t take her dancing.
Miss June isn’t really a movie star, so I’m giving you something better than a clip:
Ms. Pac-Man swag!
Atari has a few vintage t-shirts left, if anyone’s interested. Large only. Ah, nostalgia on a lovely sheet of cotton. I like this one, just for its authenticity. Straight from the makers themselves. Get this today before it ends up with the E.T. cartridges.
This awesome t-shirt is available through RedBubble.com. It comes in a bunch of colors and styles, including girly fit and regular/men’s. I’m becoming a big hoarder of geek t-shirts and I would absolutely wear this.
Holy crap! For you parents out there, Etsy seller NaptimeInspirations put this adorable applique on a onesie!
Does anyone out there have a kid? Because I will buy this for your mini-geek. It’s that adorable.
There are also a bunch of other Ms. Pac-Man items on Etsy if anyone’s interested, including a cool glass ghost bead necklace, an adorable skirt (I’m not sure I’m brave enough to wear it, but it’s super cute), cupcake toppers, a rad wristlet keychain (yeah, I said “rad”—we’re talking about the 80’s, right?), hand-painted high heels, and more.
I wish there was more swag for you cool dudes out there, but we’re talking about wearing the emblem of a big yellow chick with a bright red bow on her bald noggin. Next month, I’ll offer up some macho swag just for you. I promise.
And in case you’re wondering, no one is paying me to promote their Ms. Pac-Man swag. I just thought it was a fun idea.
If you had a good time with today’s post and want more laughs, pick up my debut novel, THE FOURTH CHANNEL, about a comically bad necromancer and her talking sacrificial knives. Both ebook and paperback are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
