Since we posted about various bags on Monday, I figured having a bag theme for Friday’s DIY would be the perfect way to wrap things up this week. I’ve been seeing a lot of ruffled bags lately, so I figured why not transform a regular tote into something a little more frilly and geeky?
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.
One thing that can make any outfit instantly geeky is a great accessory. Handbags are one of our favorites because there are so many different options available. We’ve compiled a list of great geek chic purses that we’ve found from both Etsy and around the web. Take a look!

Today’s DIY is easy but pretty time consuming. I recommend this as a weekend project, or week long project if you work full time or go to school full time. Without further ado, I give you the Tetris pillow cover!
Next week I’m headed to PAX Prime for the first time and I’m already contemplating what video game inspired outfits I should wear.
This week’s outfit is heavily inspired by the character Chell from the game Portal. Featuring both licensed and handmade items, it’s the perfect outfit for a convention or a warm summer day!
Even though it’s been a few years since I’ve been in school, I still love back to school sales since that often means awesome clothes or home items for great prices! Luckily for me, a friend of mine contacted me to let me know about a sale on graphic tees going on at Kohl’s. I decided to go check it out and see what I could find.
When I walked over toward the graphic tee section, I was immediately greeted by this display. I love how they paired this superman tee with a fitted jacket and red pants.
Last week when I was at the Star Trek convention in Vegas, I was playing around figuring out a Star Trek headband when, unknowingly to me, my partner Lindz was whipping up a Star Wars headband for last Friday’s DIY!
Clearly great minds think alike. Even better, Lindz showed one way to do a no-sew headband, and today I’m illustrating another way you can do a no-sew headband.
While a lot of our focus is often fashion based, we do, from time to time, sneak in some items geared at sprucing up your home. With many stores carrying college items, I’ve gotten a slight case of nesting. (Speaking of, although not geeky, I picked up these pillows from Target and LOVE THEM!) So on that note, I wanted to write a post that’s geared at making your home a little more geek chic!
