Dresses and Skirts

Here’s something that made me say WANT rather loudly. Elhoffer Design has done black versions of her Galactic Fighter and Galactic Knight Star Wars-inspired dresses.

Basically, this is a black dress for any occasion that can double as a cosplay. Plus, some of us don’t look great in orange in white, so a black fighter dress is doubly welcome.

Black Galactic Knight Dress $145.00 / Black Galactic Fighter Dress $145.00

Back in January, Japan’s No. S Project released skirts that are tailored in such a way as to make it seem like the wearer has the small waisted, long legged look of an anime heroine. Now they’re following up on that concept with a line of “Retro Knit One-Piece” dresses.

It’s all an illusion, but I’ll be dammed if these dresses aren’t cute as hell. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

She asked her friend, Redditor i_just_wanna_learn_, to get photos of her in her wedding gown.

It’s lovely. Truly.

Though, even if it wasn’t I would say that is because a firebreathing bride doesn’t seem like the kind of person you should piss off.

Apparently, more photos of this badassery will be posted on the Sam O. Photo Facebook page in the near future so stay tuned.

Two things ThinkGeek. First off, make this Twinkling Stars Skirt in plus sizes. Second—make it in shorts because I’m very jealous right now.

We guarantee this skirt will put a twinkle in your step. Equipped with over 250 tiny LEDs, this midi-length skirt flatters many body types. You can set the lights to off (or wear it without the battery pack), and you’ll have a stellar ombre skirt featuring an actual star chart sure to spark conversation. But the real magic happens when you set the lights to On or Twinkle. Over 45 feet of LED wire lights sparkle inside the layers, looking like little fairy lights shining through the fabric.

Anovos has expanded beyond their line of ridiculously accurate costumes and props by teaming up with Gold Bubble Clothing on a new Star Trek fashion dress line. You can get dresses in A-Line, asymmetrical, bodycon, and classic sleeveless styles in four awesome designs.

I like the variety in both cut and style in the initial release and I appreciate that they’ve included pictures with both regular and plus-sized models. Take a closer look at the designs below. [click to continue…]

dip dye top

If you’re looking for a way to make your wedding dress both unique and beautiful, what about dip dyeing it? It’s a way to do something dramatic without spending a ton of money for a custom dress. Plus, it looks really cool.

UPDATE: It has come to our attention that this particular example was airbrushed, not dip dyed. Either way, it probably isn’t a good idea to alter your expensive dress unless you know what you’re doing. Check out some additional pics below along with a link to a tutorial on the dip dyeing process. [click to continue…]
