We all know super hero movies can end up being hit or miss. And despite the great reviews that Wonder Woman was getting opening day, I was still hesitant to believe how good it could be. I knew I had to see it for myself. It not only met my expectations, but completely exceed it. I think everyone walked out of the theater feeling like Gal Gadot was made to play Wonder Woman. She was the perfect combination of strength, intelligence, charm, and beauty. And given the state of the country these days, it’s the perfect time to have a movie like Wonder Woman to empower women and remind us of how strong we are.
Can we just take a quick second to talk about some of the awesome geek fashion that has been out lately? Take for example this Batmanga Souvenir Jacket. I admit I was a little unsure about how good the quality seeing as how a lot of con clothing can be a little bit on the cheap side, but I was completely reassured once I saw it in person. Not only was the embroidery fantastic, but the jacket itself (the fabric, the lining, the material) was everything I hoped for. Also, what about all the cool workout gear from Her Universe/Kohls?

Christmas is just around the corner and I’ve been trying to enjoy every moment leading up to it. I’ve already watched Home Alone, had tons of peppermint flavored everything, put up my Christmas lights, my Christmas tree, finished my Christmas shopping, and have been listening to Christmas music all month long! And, I’ve even picked up some new Christmas sweaters! “Ugly” Christmas sweaters are all the craze these days and there’s nothing more festive than a good Christmas sweater, or better yet a geeky Christmas sweater! I not only love the design of this Batman sweater (Gotham city on your sleeves? YES!), but I was really impressed at the overall quality of the knit. There are a lot of cheap-o sweaters out there so I love that this is not itchy, soft, and doesn’t look 10 years old just after one wear! So, what are some of your favorite geeky Christmas sweaters? I would love to see!
Hopefully everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving and/or is still getting ready for more holiday dinners this weekend (I know I am!). When it comes to holiday dinners, I’ve always felt that you can’t go wrong with a sweater. Whether it be an ugly Christmas sweater, an itchy wool sweater, or even a cardigan, a sweater is always appropriate attire for that family/friends dinner. And this Spider-Gwen sweater couldn’t have arrived at a better time! Continue reading
It’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but Black Friday deals have already started! While I love a good deal, I’m also trying the Marie Kondo idea where I only buy stuff I absolutely love. At the same time, I’m also trying not to feel guilty for all the stuff I already bought! Serious first world problems, I know. :) So with that, on to this year’s Black Friday deals! Try to contain yourself!
You may be thinking, “What’s a men’s blazer doing on a women’s geek fashion blog??”. Well, this is no ordinary blazer. It’s a BATMAN BLAZER!! I’ve been friends with Tony Kim (aka Crazy4ComicCon) for many years now and besides being a super fan of comic con, bringing awareness to multi-ethnic geek culture, and being a panel host extraordinaire, he’s now taking his fandom to even greater heights by starting his own clothing line, appropriately titled “Hero Within“. I have to admit – I had no idea Tony had such a passion for men’s clothing! But then I remembered seeing his Comic-Con Bag Blazer and it all made sense. :) Us geek girls have gotten a lot of love the past few years with more and more geeky women’s clothing so it’s a nice change to finally see some love for geeky menswear too!
With Stan Lee Comic Con just around the corner and me being in “cosplay mode“, it just dawned on me over the weekend how close Halloween is! Not that I need an excuse to wear black, but I was definitely in the mood to pull out some black lace, black boots, and black knee highs. But to be honest, the real reason I wore this outfit was really to go with my bat print nails!! I’ve been using Espionage Cosmetics nail wraps for a couple years now and they have really become my go-to brand for nail art, given that these are nail stickers and much less toxic than nail polish, last way longer, and are mistake-free. Of course they have tons of great nerdy prints to choose from, but the best thing about these particular bat print wraps are that they glow in the dark!! Yes, you heard that right. How cool is that?? Halloween may be around the corner, but I know for a fact that I’ll be wearing these all year round!
