GeekiesCollage

On Sunday the second annual Geekie Awards took place in Los Angeles, celebrating geek culture with 12 different categories. This year a new category was added that focused on the growing area of geek fashion. The Fashion and Armor category, presented by Vanichi Magazine, was added after awards creator and showrunner Kristen Nedopak saw the fashions people wore on the red carpet at last year’s event.

“As a female geek, I’ve never hidden the side of me that embraces being a woman, and that means dressing up or down when I please. ‘Geek Couture’ has grown tremendously in the last few years, and more women are realizing they can still be geeks and look beautiful too!” Nedopak told Fashionably Geek. “We’re seeing designers getting creative with the art of fashion in these genres, and we wanted to honor that in this year’s show.”

There were five nominees in the category specializing in armor, steampunk, corsetry, and more. The winner will receive a full feature fashion spread in an issue of Vanichi Magazine.

Find out who won and get a glimpse of all the nominees’ stylish, geeky products after the break!

batman harley earrings

Harley meets Batman for this fun pair of earrings from Hot Topic. The harlequin diamonds on the bat logo really do kind of work. I wonder what Mistah J would have to say about that?

nintendo belly warmer

Ever heard of belly warmers? I’m guessing most of us haven’t. The accessory, also called a haramaki, looks like a corset, but it’s design is intended to keep your stomach warm. It used to be worn under clothes, but Japanese company Hobonichi has been treating the garment as a fashionable piece of clothing. And now, they’ve gone geeky with them! They’ve teamed up with Nintendo to make belly warmers featuring Super Mario Bros. and Mr. Saturn. I think they look cozy.

Check out more photos of the belly warmers after the break.

FF_BeltBuckle-2_450x360

When it comes to fashionable shinies for Browncoats, QMx really has some of the best. This time, they’re holding up your pants (no expectation that they’ll be brown) with their new Engineered By Firefly belt buckle.

This molded pewter-finish belt buckle sports an exact replica of Serenity’s builder plaque, measures 4 inches across and 2.5 inches high, is made of a strong, lightweight metal alloy, and fits belts up to 1.75 inches (4.45 cm) wide.

QMx currently has a waiting list for the item and you’ll be notified once it’s available for ordering. Y’know, for those days when you’re not up for wearing suspenders.

You can see more pictures after the break.

We’ve previously featured console war medals from Supermandolini and now there are desktop war medals for those who prefer bashing the keys on a keyboard over a controller. There’s even one for handheld games, so no matter how you game, you’ve earned a medal for your efforts.

stormtrooper undies

We’ve heard many different recruitment calls to join the Galactic Empire over the years, but these panties might be among the most effective.

These hipster style custom made undies are only available in Stormtrooper and Vader styles, but you may be able to ask Etsy shop Licorice and Cream if they can make you a Rebel Alliance version. Considering the various other geek styles in her store, I’m thinking you’ll find something fun to fulfill your lingerie needs.

Check out the Vader version after the break.

If you’re planning on doing some Naruto Uzumaki cosplay, you’re going to need his iconic jacket (well, that and his gnarly spiked hair). If you’re pressed for time and can’t make your own, then you should try picking up this Naruto Track Jacket, which looks just like the track suit  Naruto wears in the Naruto: Shippuden anime series. It features a zipper in the front, zippered pockets and the crucial Uzumaki Clan symbol.
