Black Milk continues to dominate as a leader in geek chic fashion with their newest upcoming release – a HARRY POTTER collection.
Honestly, I think the internet is going to explode when the collection goes live on Tuesday, September 3rd at 9am (AEST). Why? Because this collection is bigger than Madame Maxime!
While fandoms like Star Wars, Marvel and DC are fairly abundant in their styling options, we’ve only just begun with everyone’s beloved Time Lord and his big blue box. It’s only in recent years thanks to companies like Black Milk, Her Universe, and Harlequin Goldsmiths that chic Doctor Who fashion is even a possibility!
This week’s look is all about showing off your Gallifreyan side, in true bold, geeky style.
This week I’m on my way to Georgia for Dragon*con, which I like to refer to as a four day party con in costume. It’s pretty great! For a convention like Dragon*con where it’s possible (and probable) that you’ll spend most of your time hanging out and socializing, chic geek outfits are just the thing to change it up a little when you still want to be dressed up, without being in a full costume.
I’ve worn this Wonder Woman-themed ensemble out and about to a few evening gatherings and it’s been a pretty big hit. While it’s a bit on the bold side with the iconic Wonder Woman boots and eye-catching starred spandex leggings, the simple black top helps to keep it from being an over-the-top look.
