One of the things I love best about fashion these days is just how many companies have geek couture. Once upon a time, if you wanted to show your love for Star Wars, you had the option of a t-shirt or halloween costume, but it wasn’t the sort of thing you could wear if you wanted to dress up a bit.

Luckily, companies like We Love Fine are committed to making fashionable geekwear, and now they’ve teamed up with Goldie to create a Star Wars boutique collection.

My personal favorites are the Princess Leia Dress (complete with a hair buns hoodie), a very chic Empire Strikes Back skirt, and the Dark Side Glamour dress, but they have other great styles as well in sizes small to extra large.

doc

The 12th Doctor is just days away from taking the stage, and now you can look just like him with this costume t-shirt. It’s time to move on from the fez and embrace the new Doctor and his black coat with snazzy red lining. Preorder now for shipping on August 23rd.

501st ice bucket

The 501st Legion is no stranger to combining charity and Star Wars, so they really rose to the occasion when J.J. Abrams nominated them for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Many members participated, and they edited a sampling of doused Stormtroopers, Tusken Raiders, and more together in a video. Some of them even use their helmets, a.k.a. buckets, to dump icy water over themselves.

Don’t forget to visit the ALS website to donate and learn more about the Ice Bucket Challenge.

sith elsa

Never one to rest on her laurels, cosplayer Amanda Dawn, who we’ve featured here before, has created a Sith Elsa cosplay based on the Sith Disney Princess art by Ralph Sevelius.

If you’ll be at DragonCon, keep an eye out for her. Just try to stay on her good side.

ThinkGeek has updated their exclusive Steampunk t-shirt line to include Batman and Thundercats, or as they’re calling them, Batpunk and Thunderchaps.

Like the other tees in the line, these are black 100% cotton unisex tees and come in sizes S – 3XL.

As far as robot-smashy-bang-bang video games go, Titanfall is one of the best. It has a pretty intense following, and it’s becoming a new cosplaying favorite. Case in point: Malaysian cosplayer Craft Access pulled out all the stops and made an incredibly detailed Titanfall pilot costume. All of the details are absolutely perfect, and I’m honestly pretty stunned. You can actually check out a view from the inside of the helmet (it’s a little claustrophobic in there!) after the break.

Kei Yuki cosplay 1

Kei Yuki is a navigator and science officer in the manga series Space Pirate Captain Harlock. Nikita Cosplay made a costume based on the character for the recent Nippon Nation anime convention in Vienna, and she pretty much nailed the costume.

metal

As complex and amazing as this Metal Gear REX cosplay looks, the most challenging thing about it was getting into the costume. It was designed by Pro Voltage Cosplay who showcased the effort at Otakon 2014. There’s one person inside the costume, but it took three people to put it all together. The person inside had to walk up a ramp, half-costumed, and sit on a bicycle seat before it was all complete!

Shark

Max-Arthur is a cat that likes to ride around on a Roomba. Today, he’s doing it while dressed as a shark. He’s also entertaining a baby who is also dressed like a shark. Both of them look thoroughly amused in this adorable way to celebrate Shark Week.
