SDCC has finally released their programming schedule, and with a little more than a week until the geek extravaganza of the year, we’ve put together a list of great fashion events that you just can’t miss.
While we’ve seen companies and blogs make use of the term “geek fashion week” in the last year or two to celebrate specific products or geek fashion in general, this year we finally see an actual Geek Fashion Week event! How exciting! Hosted simultaneously online and in L.A. the week of March 23rd – 29th, Geek Fashion Week is the brainchild of friend and fellow geek fashionista Dina Kampmeyer, along with a team of other fashionably amazing geeks. It’s time to level up your fashion.
It’s been quiet around here lately, and today’s post will explain just the reason! As many of you know, San Diego Comic Con happened recently, and with it came the first ever Geek Couture Fashion show. Scruffy and I were both lucky enough to be chosen to participate along with 34 other designers from around the country. I have to say, the competition was fierce!
Something Her Universe had mentioned to us last year was the possibility of a geek fashion show happening at San Diego Comic Con in 2014, and we’re thrilled to see that it’s totally happening! Not only that, but it’s up to geeks like all of us to come up with some great designs for the show.
If you’re in the LA area and plan on going to Comikaze Expo this weekend there are loads of events that cater to geek fashion. Here’s what they have up their sleeve:
Tonight at 6:00pm will be a geek fashion show taking place on the Hot Topic Main Stage sponsored by Castle Corsetry and Espionage Cosmetics. There will be at least 3 different designers there, if not more! Here’s the event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/612042108841531/
On Saturday, I’ll be wandering around with my camera looking for anyone in great geek fashion. You’ll also get a chance to see my second Nerdvember outfit!
On the Hot Topic Main Stage there will be a “Year of the Fangirl” Fashion Photo Shoot sponsored by Her Universe. If you have a great outfit you’ve been wanting to show off, definitely show up. Due to the limited nature of the photo shoot, it’ll be first come first serve!
Also on Sunday at 11:00, there’s a Geek Girl Fashion panel featuring some great people like Ashley Eckstein (Her Universe), Mandie Bettencourt (www.geekyglamorous.com) and Crystal Clark (www.geekpinata.com).
You’ll also be able to check out Scruffy all weekend at booth #540. Definitely stop by and say hello!
Of course, there will be plenty of vendors there to whet your geeky appetite. I’m hoping I can find some great items to add to my wardrobe. Anyone else plan on attending? What panels are you hoping to checkout?
We had the opportunity this weekend to attend an event held by a fellow geeky blogger, Mandie of Geeky Glamorous fame. The event was located at Japan L.A. and featured art celebrating all that’s geeky, and girly! In addition to the artwork, there was even a contest for outfits that were fashionably geek along with some equally fashionably and geeky prizes.
