Pencil Skirts of the Geek Persuasion


Since it’s Friday, let’s have another post! While we were at San Diego Comic Con this year, we had the opportunity to attend a geek fashion panel (post next week) where Ashley Eckstein (Her Universe) hinted at the fact that we may start seeing skirts of the geek persuasion at Hot Topic. Well, it looks like that time has finally come, because they’re here!

Right now it looks like they only have a few designs, but I’m sure if they’re popular enough, we’ll be seeing more in the future. Maybe they’ll release some a-line versions too!

My biggest concern with this style of skirt is that they tend to ride up a bit if you look at them funny, so I’m interested to see how they hold up to normal wear. If Scruffy or I do pick up one, or at least try one on, we’ll let you know how it goes. OR if one of you have picked up a skirt, we’d love to hear how you like it!

    While I haven’t bought any of the above mentioned skirts, I did try on the exploding Tardis skirt the other day. I love the concept of pencil skirts with geek designs, but I didn’t buy the skirt because it tends to ride up due to the garment’s length and material. Also, because the fabric tends to be rather clinging, you would need to go up a size to wear it with leggings or hose.

      Thanks for the feedback! I was afraid that might be the case. I definitely think length could remedy the issue, or maybe a different material/style could help.

    I bought the Marvel skirt and it’s been my favorite skirt to wear. I actually plan on wearing and planning a whole outfit around it for the midnight premiere of the new Thor movie.(:
