A month ago both Scruffy and I had the pleasure of meeting with the folks over at Dweebcast to talk about geek fashion and how it’s influence has grown in over the last few years. In addition to speaking with us, they do a great job of getting a behind the scenes look at companies like Her Universe and Castle Corsetry. We’ve been eagerly anticipating the release of the video.
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 even remotely interested in geek fashion, then you definitely wont want to miss the fourth annual Comikaze Expo this Halloween weekend at the Los Angeles Convention Center! From numerous geek fashion related panels, to the aptly named Geek Fashion Show on Friday, there are loads of events and vendors you’ll definitely want to check out.
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?
