We here at Girls Are Geeks firmly believe in cleanliness, therefore, I have for you on Etsy today: soap! These soaps are so much fun, you won’t want to put them in the shower! Just be careful not to say any bad words like the kid from A Christmas Story, or you might end up eating some space invaders!
What do you make?
I make soap shaped like video game controllers and other geeky gadgets.
Who are you and/or how did you get started?
My name is Chrystal Doucette. I invented soap shaped like video game controllers and other electronics on a whim. My business, DigitalSoaps, was founded on Jan. 1, 2009. My first soaps included mice, keyboards, computer monitors, PlayStation controllers, calculators, TV remotes, cell phones, and a chess set with a board and 3D pieces. Now I have a full line of video game controller and cartridge soaps.
What makes your items great for geeks?
My soaps appeal to geeks on many levels. The signature scent I use is Mountain Dew, a coveted drink for the gaming community. I also caffeinate my soap – giving geeks an incentive to bathe. In addition, the products are shaped like a geek’s favorite gadgets, and so these soaps showcase a geek’s interests.
What sorts of geeky stuff are you into?
Some of my favorite geeky activities include: Walking my cat on a leash in the park, playing the flute, usability testing for Microsoft and playing games on NES. I enjoy computer games as well, and eagerly await Diablo III’s release. Soap making is sorta geeky too.
There you have it! Now, get clean and play games, in whatever order you prefer!
