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!
Around here, we’re big fans of Espionage Cosmetics, especially their nail wraps. Last year they launched a highly successful Kickstarter campaign to create geeky nail wraps inspired by Tetris, Dr. Who, Star Trek, and more. Well, they’re not done yet! Today is the start of their new Kickstarter Campaign Nailed It: But Wait There’s Moar!
In the beginning of this year, Sherlockology teased out info about U.K. jewelry company, Honeybourne Jewellery, working on Sherlock themed jewelry. Many a Sherlock fan woke up to exciting news this morning, as the collection has launched today, and is available exclusively on Sherlockology’s store, Sherlockabilia!
Looking for the card that speaks to that extra special geek bond between you and your love? Look no further! We’ve waded through Etsy to bring you some of of our favorite geek-themed Valentine’s Day cards in today’s post. Hopefully they’re just what you’ve been looking for, or will inspire you to create something yourself!
In another couple of hours, it will be January 22nd over in England, and for countries like theirs where they write dates with the day first, then month, that means it’s 22.1 – as in 221B, Sherlock Holmes Day! In celebration of this, Gold Bubble Clothing is offering another limited release of the two Sherlock-inspired pieces they had available when they first launched, PLUS two never before available pieces!

A few years ago, you’d be lucky if you could find a geek-themed shirt in a woman’s style t-shirt. Now we’ve got all sorts of dresses, skirts, leggings, and more to choose from this holiday season! We’ve picked out some of our top favs that are sure to start, or add to, a chic geek girl’s wardrobe.
New company Gold Bubble Clothing has been teasing the launch of their brand since they debuted a few of their pieces at Comikaze Expo earlier this month. Thankfully the wait is over for those loving their Alphonse Mucha and Camilla d’Errico printed pieces, and they’ll be officially launching tomorrow, Black Friday, at 10 AM PST!
But, we’re obviously a geek chic style blog, and while artist Camilla d’Errico is a familiar face at cons and a comic book artist, there’s obviously more than meets the eye with Gold Bubble Clothing when it comes to geek chic wear…
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.
