As a fan of Black Milk’s entire line of Star Wars items, I’ve had this Death Star dress for a while now. And I’m not sure about you, but I’ve always found it a little challenging when it comes to how to wear something so eye-catching outside of the convention halls and into the “normal” public. With the way the dresses are shown on the Black Milk site, it’s hard to get ideas on what to wear with them. Well, I took that as a challenge and here’s what I came up with. What do you wear with your BM dresses? Comment below and share your favorite things to wear with BM stuff!
I’ve had my fair share of dressy posts in this blog, but once in a while I just have to throw on a comfy sweatshirt (like this Spider-Man one), basic jeans, and Converse sneakers. I think every nerd needs their Chuck Taylors (which is perfect timing since I’m in the middle of a Chuck marathon). And if you’re wondering what’s going on with the pose in the above photo? Hopefully you might recognize it as a little mini tribute to one of my favorite comic book artists, J. Scott Campbell, and his amazing Mary Jane statue that came out this month!
A lot of geeky shirts can be loud, busy, and pretty attention getting. Don’t get me wrong, I love those crazy comic exclamations, characters, and fun prints. And as geeks, we do like to make a statement in our T-shirts! But sometimes it’s great to have a “casual” version of your favorite superhero shirt such as this faded Batman one. This particular one could easily be that favorite 15 year old T-shirt that has been washed so much that it’s about to fall apart. Plus the subtle black and white graphic will easily keep your identity a secret, right? ;)
The rise of geeky girl clothing has been amazing over the past ten years. What was once impossible to find your favorite TV show, movie, or video game on a girl sized shirt is now so easily available. Ashlie Eckstein saw potential in geeky girl clothing early on and spawned Her Universe, a sci-fi focused clothing brand for women. I remember my first Her Universe purchase clearly at SDCC many years ago. A cool looking Star Wars hoodie in my size?? I couldn’t believe my eyes! And to this day, that hoodie still remains one of my favorite Star Wars hoodies that I own. Since then, Her Universe has gone from just a store on the con floor to a very well known brand and today’s outfit post features one of their incredible dresses!
With today being the last day of September (and maybe me still trying to hold on to the warm California weather), today’s outfit features yet another favorite piece from Junk Food Clothing. Although you can find Junk Food shirts here and there online, I have a tip to share with you. One of the best places to find some really unique Star Wars pieces from Junk Food is actually in Disneyland! Both the Star Trader store in Disneyland and the D Street store in Downtown Disney carry a variety of unique Star Wars tees, hoodies, and tanks that most of the time are not sold anywhere else. This unfortunately means that the one I’m wearing is not sold online, but maybe now you’ll have an excuse to hit up Disneyland!
I’m not sure about you, but the first thing I thought of when I saw this dress was Wednesday Addams. I may have been way too young to remember, but I still have distant yet fond memories of seeing The Addams Family re-runs on TV. I had even more appreciation for the show after the movie remake, especially since Christina Ricci fit the role of Wednesday Addams perfectly! Hence why I was so drawn to this particular dress. However, upon further Google search, it appears that this dress is actually now associated and was made famous when Kate Middleton wore it (with baby bump too)! I honestly had no idea, but I guess that explains why the dress flew off the shelves quickly. Well, even if you’re a Wednesday Addams or a Kate Middleton type – I guess it just proves that this dress could look great on anyone!
Following my Adventure Time leggings post, I thought it was fitting that my next post be about these amazing Batman leggings. I’ve seen a few comic book leggings here and there, but none that have been a must-have. However, that all changed when I saw these. Given that I have been following Jim Lee’s work for almost 20 years now and that Jim Lee’s art got me into comics in the first place, I know Jim Lee art when I see it. So you can imagine how excited I was when I recognized this signature Batman art on this pair of leggings. I never imagined that I could wear Jim Lee’s work in such a fun piece of fashion and now I can take it with me wherever I go!
