It’s always a little extra stressful, but exciting this time of year, as SDCC is right around the corner! There’s the anticipation of getting into panels (Hall H anyone?), buying exclusives, finishing up cosplay or in my case, finishing up my garment for the Her Universe Geek Couture Fashion Show. And on top of all of that, I still have to figure out what to wear! If you’re a little stuck like I always am on what to wear, my friends at Set To Stunning are doing a special series on being “SDCChic” so check it out! While I’m still figuring out what to wear myself to SDCC, I wanted to post another “everyday cosplay” look that you may have seen me wear on my Nerdist episode the other month. Since I had spent quite some time photoshopping Honey Lemon’s periodic table to make her bag, I figured why not also print it onto a shirt? I’ve actually gotten a few requests to maybe sell this tank top, so stay tuned! There may be a “stylish geek” Etsy store coming soon! With the rise in geek fashion, I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot of everyday cosplay at SDCC this year. What are YOU going to wear?
Happy Friday!! I know what you’re thinking. “Another floral outfit??” Well, I’m not just talking about your typical floral dress here. I’ve been seeing a lot of creative floral tops (with stripes for example) and this Stormtrooper tank from Fifth Sun is yet another fun spin on the use of florals. It’s also girly, fun, and perfect with a flowy pastel colored skirt. Wear it on a hot summer day or even pair it with a blazer or moto jacket for a nighttime look!
EEEEEK!! I’m especially excited today because I can finally share what I was filming with Nerdist the other week! I was contacted a while ago to be in their new web series – Totino’s Adventure People and am so incredibly honored to be in their segment on geek fashion. It was such a pleasure working with them and on top of that, I had the perfect excuse to do more shopping. Hehe. I’m still kinda of freaking out inside that it’s finally out and part of me just wants to crawl into my turtle shell and hide! Anyhow, check out the episode here and let me know what you think!
You may have been hearing a lot of buzz around “everyday cosplay” and “Disney bounding” lately and wondered what that was. To explain, this is basically a casual take on cosplay where your outfit isn’t a full on costume, but something inspired by that character in either the color scheme, style of clothing, or even a certain prop. Even clothing companies have jumped on this idea by printing what looks like a costume onto a shirt, hoodie, or maybe leggings. Remember those giant T-shirts that had hot bikini bodies printed on them back in the ’80s and ’90s? Well, you get the idea. And then there’s also “Disney bounding” where you are essentially dressing up like Disney characters, but not in full costume. For example, Continue reading
When Her Universe announced the pre-order for their new Avengers line for Hot Topic, I immediately knew I had better grab these fast. Not only were they incredibly designed, but they were also designed in collaboration with last year’s winners of the SDCC 2014 Her Universe Fashion Show! I love the retro pin-up style of the pieces and not only do they look amazing, but they have exceptional quality for the prices. I immediately fell in love with this Loki dress as I have always had a fondness for retro sweetheart halter style dresses. The green and black keep it pretty classy and the gold design on the bottom is a nice subtle nod to everyone’s favorite Marvel villain. And on that note, I wanted to officially share that Continue reading
I know, I know… You’re thinking, “Another Star Wars outfit??” Well, like it or not, right now is a great time to be a Star Wars fan. Not only is there so much excitement over The Force Awakens, but Celebration VII just happened and that came with so much cool merchandise, including some very awesome new apparel from one of my favorite geeky brands, We Love Fine. I love how fashion forward they are and that especially shows in some of the new stuff that came out at Celebration. I was dying over this Luke Skywalker Landspeeder tank at their booth, but wasn’t able to get my hands on one until they got released online the other week. It’s definitely a little bit of a throwback to the ’80s (you know I love the ’80s) and this time I decided to pair it with a pair of white skinny jeans and big hoop earrings to compliment the era.
Everyone has a bad day once in a while and it’s days like today that I rely on fashion to perk up my mood. This X-Wing tank by Fifth Sun easily did the trick with it’s fun rainbow graphics and slight ’80s throwback. I decided to go even more ’80s by pairing it with this denim vest, which I am loving as an alternative piece to wear with my geeky tees. And don’t forget you can get your own X-Wing tank by entering my giveaway with Fifth Sun on Instagram! 3 lucky people will get their choice of tee or tank from Fifth Sun, so don’t miss out!
