Mad Quickies: #28daysofblackcosplay, diversity in game testing, and Batman goes Wild West

Hiiii, Mad Art Lab! Donna let me take over the Quickies today, so I have some nerdery, some thinky things, some costumes and some pretty art for you. Enjoy!

A group of other black costumers have gotten together to celebrate Black History month with #28DaysofBlackCosplay and it is glorious. If you look at nothing else in this post, look at the hashtag on twitter and see what a truly diverse geek community looks like.

Marvel has a new all-women superhero team, A-Force and G. Willow Wilson, who has been writing the spectacular new Ms Marvel series, is writing it. (You can’t see me, but I’m dancing in my chair about this.)

Are you looking for a Valentine’s Day gift for a special someone? (Yes, *you* count as a special someone too! Treat yourself!) Michele Banks has beautiful EKG Scarves in her shop. I own one. They’re even prettier in person. via Donna

I think we can all agree that Skepchick Dr. Raychelle Burks needs her own popular science show. Right?
