Dresses and Skirts

marriott carpet dresses

Remember that Marriott carpet camo cosplay from last year’s Dragon Con? The one that caused all the legal hubbub? Looks like it was reimagined this year with a more stylish option.

These simply beautiful shirts, skirts and dresses are the work of Etsy seller Frockasuarus (who we featured recently with her Game Of Thrones dress). She makes each piece by hand and they are made to order so there’s a lead time of anywhere from 4-10 weeks depending on the product. That’s a long wait, but if these pictures are any indication, it’ll be worth it. She’s got a wonderful range of products representing Star Trek,  The Hobbit, Legend of Zelda and more.

She’s temporarily shutdown her Etsy shop due to a flood of orders, but you can still head over there and sign up to be notified as soon as she’s ready to take on more work.

GoT dress 4

We’ve seen a lovely Game of Thrones skirt from Etsy shop Frockasaurus, but the store has also listed this attractive dress design featuring the same house sigils fabric. You can represent houses Targaryen, Greyjoy, Lannister, and many more with this black and white print. Dark gray cotton compliments the house sigils, and there’s plenty of pretty satin binding trim. This is going on my wish list.

The dress is made to order, and turnaround time is currently 8-10 weeks.

book of life la ombre

Guillermo Del Toro and Diego Luna’s upcoming film The Book Of Life has been translated into an exclusive clothing line by Hot Topic.

The collection of skirts, dresses, jewelry, cardigans and more takes inspiration from both the characters and the stunning visuals from the movie itself, creating some really lovely fashion you can wear almost anywhere.

Head after the break to see some of our favorites.

tardis dress 1

Doctor Who is back on television, and we’re in the mood for time travel. Nothing could be more perfect for that than this TARDIS dress by Etsy seller Smarmy Clothes. The strapless dress is made from printed TARDIS fabric exclusive to the Etsy store – there’s even a reflection of Big Ben in the TARDIS window panes.

The flared skirt dress is made to order, and the seamstress is happy to add spaghetti or halter-style straps if you’d prefer a little more support. Current turnaround time is 4-5 weeks.

tesla dress

Fashion incorporates electronics into designs more and more these days, but Anouk Wipprecht and ArcAttack took that to the next level with their plate metal, chainmail dress that serves as a Faraday cage. Wipprecht stood on a stage between two giant Tesla coils and withstood zaps of raw electricity. The dress is made from 600 rings of chainmail, a spiky metal helmet, toy plasma balls (they add yet another impressive touch), and plate mail.

See the dress in electrifying action after the break.

The Ninth Doctor wasn’t around for long, but he’s still got a place in our hearts. This dress is a subtle tribute to him that only the most die-hard Whovians will recognize. It’s a 95/5 cotton/spandex blend that will make you look like a Time Lord.

map dress 1

Tumblr user permetstu decided to make a Marauder’s Map dress for LeakyCon. However, she didn’t try to get the iconic imagery from Harry Potter printed onto a dress. Instead, she made the dress and drew the map on by hand with fine point Sharpies. I’m not even kidding. All those tiny lines, all those letters – it’s all done by hand. Just the text on the front of the dress took three and a half hours. I’d love to see the pile of used Sharpies it took to complete this project.

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.
