Geek Chic Cosmetics has released a new collection called Scapers, inspired by one of my all time favorite tv series, Farscape. I’m ridiculously excited over this. Farscape had amazing characters, fantastic plots and tons of character development. It had one of the best anti-heroes of all time, in my opinion, Scorpius. Each episode was usually self-contained, but had a larger overall story arc throughout the seasons. I own the 4 seasons of the series and the Peacekeeper Wars on DVD. I’ve rewatched them several times. I also loved Chiana and Sikozu. However, I was instantly charmed by Ben Browder’s character, John Crichton. I loved watching Aeryn Sun grow and change throughout the seasons. This show made me cry, a lot! So. Good!
This collection is made up of 8 eyeshadows and 1 glitter. Starburst (glitter), Anarchist Priest, Guiding Star, Bonded to the Stars, Sensitive Warrior, Frell!, Find My Way Home, Harvey in My Head, and Yotz! I also included a shot of the brand new Luck Dragon.
As soon as I get the colors I’ll be swatching them for you. So. Excited!
Did you watch Farscape? Who was your favorite character? It’s so hard to choose!

Oh I love Farscape! I’ve only watched the entire series once, so I think it’s time for a rewatch soon. I don’t know if i can pick any favorite characters, I like John and Aeryn of course, and I like the odd mix of characters in general. These eyeshadows look wonderful!
roxcat Yes! You should!

I need at least 3, possibly 5 of those and Farscape isn’t even a show I’ve watched. I haven’t seen Farscape or Babylon 5. I started watching Farscape but couldn’t get past Claudia Black’s eyebrows. I think with older sci-fi I have to make a determined effort to watch it, or the earlier seasons (I LOVE Stargate SG1 but season 1, omg) really put me off.
Obviously I need Starburst and Bonded to the Stars in my life regardless.
Jedi Ana You can do it!
I share your love of Farscape. I almost can’t pick a favorite character. I loved how Aeryn developed from robotic soldier, to this passionate, warm and yet still fierce warrior. We loved her so much in fact, we nearly named our daughter Aeryn. I also love how Chiana progresses throughout the series, she’s damaged but remains this childlike spirit. Never, ever will get over losing Zhaan, ever. I think one of the most poignant moments of the series is when Aeryn trusts Rygel to hold baby D’argo when they jump into Moya’s net in Peacekeeper Wars. That one moment encapsulates how far they’ve come together. Even Scorpius developed his own twisted sense of loyalty. Some of the best episodes for me are the ones with Scorpy working the Moya crew in some common goal. Not sure I can pick a favorite episode, but the body change episode has always been a big fav, followed by the time travel trip to 1986 and the “We’re So Screwed” trilogy in season 4. I think I need to rewatch them…..again.
cultoftaupe I just wish that a new series would come out with depth of characters and massive story arcs like this. I get the most fulfilllment out of shows like Farscape or Buffy <3
Phyrra I agree! Buffy, while it was still good at the end, had a great run and they had enough time for a fulfilling end to the story. Firefly is still one of the biggest WTF’s? in television history. How they let that one go after 1 season is beyond me. What infuriates me about Farscape is the totally random way it was canceled. It was still pretty popular, everyone wanted to do it. I hate when shows are just cut in half like that. If you want another series to try out, check out Stargate SG1. I can’t say it has the same complexity and character development as the Farscape’s and Buffy’s. But it has some great arcs, funny writing and if you hang on long enough, the reunion of Ben Browder and Claudia Black.!
I can’t frelling believe it. Farscape is my favourite sci-fi show ever. I think I have to have these. Favourite character… I guess if I had to choose one, it would have to be Aeryn. This is so extremely exciting. Find My Way Home and Harvey In My Head look like my fave colours of the collection right now.
trumpette Yes! I know, right?
I loved watching Farscape too – although it’s been so long for me that I can’t remember any of the characters’ names, only what they looked like. I miss that show, but I could’ve sworn that I remember there being some talk of it returning? Now I’m going to have to look it up and see or if that was just goofy me having wishful thinking again… That made me mad getting taken off, then Stargate Atlantis & Universe, and Secret Circle getting taken off too. :/
studiodummies John Crichton, Aeryn Sun, Zhaan, D’Argo, Chiana, Sikozu, Jool, Grayza, Scorpius, Rygel, Talon, Pilot, Moya…
I’ve been drooling over these colors as GCC have posted them on Facebook. Can’t wait to see your swatches.
(Why can’t we use teeny-tiny font?) I have not watched this Farscape, so I have no answers to your questions. *blush*
UneLuneBleue Because it’s epic!
I love the Farscape colors but the names are a bit off
• Anarchist Priest should have been the blue one! After all, Zhaan was the priest, she was blue & the self confessed chief anarchist on he planet
• Purple – Yotz should be purple as purple is regal & the only royal was Dominar Rygel and he said yotz a lot!
• Black – should be Harvey in my Head, most definitely – Harvey was Scorpy’s alter ego in John’s head and definitely black
• Grey – Nebari Mind Cleanse would have been a perfect name for the silvery/grey
• Orange – probably Starburst as a starburst is kind of golden
• Pink – I think I would have gone with Frell me Dead
• Green – looks like something you can’t get rid of so Irreversibly Contaminated LOL
the Farscape colors but the names are a bit off! Here are my suggestions….
Priest should have been the blue one! After all, Zhaan was the
priest, she was blue & the self confessed chief anarchist on he planet
- Yotz should be purple as purple is regal & the only royal was Dominar
Rygel and he said yotz a lot!
– should be Harvey in my Head, most definitely – Harvey in John’s head was definitely
- Nebari Mind Cleanse would have been a perfect name for the silvery/grey
- probably Sputnik (in honor of Sikozu Shanu) or Scream (if you wanted to name
it in honor of Jool)
- I think would have been great as – Frell me Dead
– looks like something you can’t get rid of so – Irreversibly
- should be Starburst as a Starburst is kind of golden as Moya fires up
– Belly of the Budong
SelenaJohno Personally, I like that Geek Chic chose unconventional colors rather than predictable ones to match up with the characters. I can’t wait to swatch the colos and see how they turned out
SelenaJohno Sounds like you have a lot of good ideas Selena. Are you active on the GCC facebook page? They post previews and things and I’m sure they welcome input and suggestions when collections are still being formulated. It’s a bit too late now but you should probably head over there, I’m sure they’d love your feedback and input for future collections
