With all that’s been going on with me this past month – multiple visits to the doctor’s, getting poked and prodded with tons of needles, and just feeling worn out inside and out, it’s times like this where I really feel like insides need to feel like my outsides. I promise I’ll go into more details about my condition soon, but today I’m going to be fighting an uphill battle, just waiting for things to be over. It’s going to be a long journey, but I’m armed and ready to take on the battle.
I think we can all say that geek girl fashion is on the rise. However, let’s not forget about the guys! It’s a nice change of pace to see that geek fashion even on the men’s side has been evolving as well! Seeing these classy Star Wars men’s accessories made me realize that even men’s fashion is expanding past your typical “insert humorous geek comment” statement tees. Another perfect example is this men’s Star Wars tropical print tee by On the Byas – it’s subtle, fun, and what I call “Star Wars hipster”. It’s exactly what I’m hoping women’s fashion will start doing – I mean, wouldn’t you just love this print on a blouse? Anyhow, one can only hope!
If you’ve ever been to a comic convention, then you’ll know that corsets and geeky girls seem to go hand in hand. I’m not sure if it’s the love of cosplay, steampunk, or pirate obsessions, but if we’re talking about geek girl wardrobe staples, a corset is not a bad thing to own. I never thought I would be able to wear one as a “casual” accessory until I found this one from The Violet Vixen. I may have been summoning my inner pirate here, but I just though it looked great with this striped tee and flared skirt! Also, I couldn’t help but go for a more steampunk style since I loved the straps, buckles, zipper, and well, everything about it. They have so many styles that it’s so hard to choose from! Be sure to check out their shop as well as this interview I did with them!
We Love Fine has been on a spree of putting out some amazing stuff lately. They’ve not only just launched their mathematical Adventure Time Collection, but they’ve also got a bunch of new and really unique items in their Spider-verse collection! But one of my favorite collections has to be the Goldie Strikes Back Star Wars collection. Even though most of the collection is sold out by now, I was able to snag a few items including the Skywalker tank and this Tattooine shirt. I love the subtle artwork, the throwback to some good old ’80s art, and color schemes that are absolutely easy on the eyes. This Tatooine shirt could easily be one of those “postcard” shirts that I might have picked up on a trip somewhere. Heck, I wish it was!
Gaming consoles come and go, but there’s definitely one that no one will ever forget – the Atari 2600. Who knew just a simple joystick and single button could create so much fun? I mean, if you think about how complicated games are now versus back then and the time we’ve spent on them, it’s sort of amazing how those simplistic games were able to hold our attention! I think every kid in the ’80s had an Atari or had a friend with an Atari and I myself spent many hours at other people’s houses playing Frogger, Asteroids, and Space Invaders, just to name a few. My love for gaming has waxed and weened over the years, but I’ll always have a love for the old school stuff. This bodysuit from Living Dead Clothing is spot on with it’s classic graphics, great fit, and I’m just loving everything about it. So if you’re looking for some fun and geeky spandex, definitely check them out! Oh, and their Moogle dress is seriously to die for!! Oogles of Moogles!!
We all felt the force on Force Friday and with The Force Awakens being released in almost exactly 3 months, it’s the perfect time to stock up on some new gear! This giveaway is for both the girls and the guys and all you have to do is check it out on Instagram! I will be randomly selecting 2 lucky winners who will get their choice of a tee or tank from Fifth Sun. Details after the jump!
Now that Force Friday shopping has calmed down quite a bit, my wallet can finally rest! In addition to all the toys I bought, the random Star Wars foods, and the two BB-8s now hanging out in my house, Fifth Sun was kind enough to send me some of their new apparel for The Force Awakens! Since a lot of the releases for Force Friday were so secretive, even they couldn’t show me what they sending over so I couldn’t wait to get the package. You can actually watch me opening it for the first time after the jump!
