Are you ready for the best month of the year? That’s right, it’s time for #NERDVEMBER! We had such an amazing turnout last year, that we just had to do it again this year.
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.
WonderCon is finally here! Lindz and I are looking forward to the chic geek outfits we’re sure to find some of your wearing over the weekend, and of fashionable merchandise to be found in the dealer’s hall. What we’re most excited about though, are the geek fashion related panels occurring over the weekend, and we’re sure you are too! Check below the cut for our list of the geek fashion related panels to be found at this year’s WonderCon:
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.
It’s that time of year again ladies! Last year we decided to challenge ourselves and you with a month-long geek fashion contest we dubbed #NERDVEMBER. It was such a success that we couldn’t wait to run it again this year, bigger and better than before!
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!
There’s only one week left to enter the ground-breaking Her Universe Geek Couture Fashion Show Design Competition! This is definitely an event you will NOT want to miss being a part of, whether you take a stab at submitting your designs and/or eagerly sit in the audience to see the show at San Diego Comic Con in July.
Still unsure whether you can, or should, enter? Read on!
Happy New Year fellow geek fashionistas!
It wouldn’t be fashion if we didn’t change our look, and our blog is no exception! It’s been months in the planning, but we’re very excited to start the new year off with a new logo and general overhaul of the look of our blog. We love the upgrade, and hope you do too.
In the year and half since we started this blog, geek chic fashion has increased at a whirlwind pace. We say it a lot, but it’s true – it has never been a better time to be a stylish geek!
As you might know, we’re big fans of 1928 Jewelry’s Marvel pieces around these parts as seen here, and here. Which is why, when I talked to them at Comikaze, I was extremely sad to hear they would not be renewing their Marvel license after the end of this year. Perhaps the only good to come out of this news is they’re now offering their pieces at 50% discount!
To refresh your memory, here are just a few of our favorites that they carry:
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?
