Dresses and Skirts

dalek dresses

We’ve seen plenty of Dalek dresses over the years, but nothing like this version from Etsy seller Kaotichandbag. It’s not what you would call subtle.

It’s available in both black and gold versions.

disney quote dress front

Y’know, I like this Disney Princess Quotes dress. Somehow, it’s both classic and cute. This simple ivory dress has Disney princess silhouettes and quotes. It actually reminds me a bit of the Disney Silhouettes you see at the park.

Dress

This dress features the famous Battle of Endor complete with Death Star and TIE fighters swooping across space. Most of the action is happening on the front but the design does carry through to a starry pattern across the back of the dress.

In the world of fashion designers, Anouk Wipprecht is anything but typical. One of the last creations we saw from her was a chainmail dress that was also a Faraday cage, and the robotic Spider Dress that we featured earlier this year has definitely evolved.

The Spider Dress is an extension of the wearer and uses sensors to detect anyone or anything that encroaches upon their personal space. If someone approaches the person wearing the dress, the animatronic limbs move into attack position. Or, as Wipprecht explains:

Approach the system under calmer circumstance and the dress just might beckon you to come closer with smooth, suggestive gestures.

The dress was 3D printed and runs on Intel Edison. It’s still in the testing phase, but Wipprecht will display the Spider Dress at CES in January.

May-Britt Moser is a co-founder of the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience and Centre for the Biology of Memory at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). She’s also a winner of the 2014 Nobel prize for Physiology and Medicine along with colleague John O’Keefe and husband Edward Moser for discovering grid cells that make up the brain’s positioning system.

London based designer Matthew Hubble, who designs some pretty gorgeous science-inspired clothing for women, made a dress for Moser to wear at the ceremony that features the neuron grid she helped discover in the design. The precision, detail, and thought that went into the design are both inspiring and remarkable in their dedication.

Hubble also designed a grid cell scarf to match the dress design.

One of the things that makes Guardians Of The Galaxy such a great movie, in my opinion, is just how visual it is. Even if you put aside the characters, action, music, and story, it would still be an amazing movie to just…look at.

Maybe that’s why this new Guardians collection from Living Dead is so eyecatching. They’ve taken iconic imagery and turned it into fashion that’s sleek and sexy. From the Star-Lord leggings, to the Groot skater dress, there’s a little something here for everyone to enjoy.

Head after the break to see more of this stunning collection.
