Black Milk Clothing led the charge into the world of geek themed spandex that many companies have enthusiastically taken up the call to arms to follow. One such company is Los Angeles based clothing company, Poprageous! Ranging from prints featuring fandoms like Doctor Who and Game of Thrones, to collaborating with artists like JSalvador of Super Emo Friends genius, Poprageous is definitely one of those companies whose garments should be a part of any geek chic girl’s wardrobe!
While we love to create various DIY projects, sometimes it’s great to look at what others are making when it comes to all things geek chic. I think, in part due to my desire to spring clean, I’ve been looking for ways to update my own home decor, so I gathered some great Etsy inspiration. Being that I’m big into retro gaming, I used that as my jumping off point, and here’s what I found!
Every now and then we like to check our favorite websites for any new shirts or geek gear to add to our closets. Here’s what is currently out there.
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.
As we’ve discussed before, adding a little something to your nails is a great way to show off your geeky pride. While we’ve covered nail polish in a few posts, like this one or this one, we haven’t taken a good look at what’s available in terms of nail decals or fake nail sets. What’s great about these is they’re pretty quick to apply and an easy way to dress up your outfit. Check out our finds below!
We’ll start off with two designs currently available at Thinkgeek. Click photos for direct product links.
Since my wedding is this week and has some geeky 8 bit elements, I decided the outfit for this week should also match that theme!
This Tetris swimsuit was my main inspiration, and the rest came together from stuff I either had, made, or got from Etsy.
One of my first loves was video games so I was looking for something to make that would be fun and 8-bit. Pacman seemed like the perfect game to base something off of, and I came up with a great idea for an easy craft. The great thing about this headband is that you can switch it around depending on your mood!\
