Last weekend, Scruffy and I had the pleasure of attending Comikaze both as panelists and as fans of the con. For us, the highlight of the con had to be the Geek Fashion Show. Seven designers had the opportunity to showcase their geek chic designs which ranged from dresses, to swim wear, and even shoes!
If you’re looking for that perfect blend of vintage chic silhouette with that classy geek flair, look no further than Australian fashion label Seams Nostalgic! Their newly released line, Alter Ego Geeky Couture, pairs vintage style with geek inspiration in the form of skirts that are sure to please DC and Marvel fans alike.
There’s something to be said about the fact that I’m currently writing this post during a heat wave in Southern California. However, for the rest of you, fall weather is right around the corner. For this post, we’re putting together some great geeky finds that you can incorporate into your wardrobe as the weather cools.
It’s been awhile since we’ve posted about new geeky licensed fabrics, ranging from Disney designs to some great female DC heroes, we’ve rounded up some great new designs that are sure to wow in all your DIY creations.
It’s that time of year again. The weather is getting warmer, days are getting longer, and of course, new geeky swimsuits are being released! I’m always excited to see what new looks companies have come up with, and what styles are going to be popular. If these are any indication, it’s going to be a summer full of comics and Disney.
Black Milk’s Ammo releases may only contain a few pieces (like the highly desired Bad Kitty gear), but it’s just enough – they know just where to aim to get your attention! After launching their main Batman collection at the beginning of February, they teased at another release of more DC items to come, hence Heroes Ammo. While only containing a mere 4 DC licensed pieces, Black Milk proved why they continue to be a beloved and major guiding force in geek/pop culture clothing. One word: Watchmen.
Spencer’s, what I like to think of as the adult, more novelty-driven, version of Hot Topic, may be a shop you overlook, but these days it’s brimming with some really choice geek wares. I’m especially loving their wallet and clutch selections!
There were so many things to highlight that I’ve split this up into two posts today, one focusing on accessories, and the other on clothing – so be sure to check out the other post a little later.
Australia is home to not one, but two, awesome clothing companies ready to dress the geeks of the world! Launched in 2012, Living Dead Clothing is one of the many companies to have started in their wake, making their unique mark on the spandex clothing world with their design motif of chibi and zombiefied character artwork. Featuring mashups of fandoms, from Disney Princesses dressed as the Doctors to Batman characters as kitties, their designs and artwork set them, and your wardrobe, apart!
Being geek chic isn’t only limited to when you’re awake, but can be flaunted even when you’re cozy in bed. Check out this selection of great pajama sets, sleepwear separates, and fun underwear.
