Dresses and Skirts

skellington skater

I officially envy anyone who can wear skater dresses because this new The Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington cosplay skater dress from Hot Topic is just adorable.

I’m also guessing you could wear a pair of dress pants with it, which lets you NBX cosplay for just about any occasion.

It comes in sizes XS to 3X and is in stock now.

elsa wedding gown

We’ve recently seen Queen Elsa’s blue dress turned into a Quinceañera gown, and now it’s inspired a wedding dress. Designer Alfred Angelo already offers a collection of Disney Fairy Tale gowns so it was only a matter of time before Frozen made an appearance. The above illustration is a sketch of the wedding dress. According to Disney Style, the final product will be blue:

The dress is an ice-blue, softly flared sheath gown with a sweetheart neckline made with layers of satin, tulle, organza and glitter net. Beading in swirling patterns cover the gown, so it shines just as bright as Elsa’s icy dress. As a nod to her snowflake embellished cape, the Watteau train of the wedding dress drapes from the shoulders to the floor for a regal finish.

Brides will be able to skate down the aisle in this design as of January 2015.

captain marvel dress 1

The Carol Danvers version of Captain Marvel is beyond awesome, and it’s been amazing to watch the Carol Corps grow over the last couple of years. I see more and more cosplayers wear the red, blue, and yellow, and Tumblr user pineapplesquid made a fancy dress version of Captain Marvel’s outfit. This design is much cooler than any of the poufy dresses I wore to high school dances; in fact, I think it would make a pretty rad wedding dress.

sally cosplay dress main

If you want to put together a quick but fun NBX cosplay, Hot Topic has this The Nightmare Before Christmas Sally Cosplay Dress and a pair of The Nightmare Before Christmas Sally Tights that should do nicely.

Whether you want to wear it as is for an NBX inspired look or go the extra mile with the make up and hair, it’s a pretty good deal and great for someone who doesn’t sew or wants something they can cosplay in and also wear casually.

These beautiful Harry Potter dresses let you relive your glory days at Hogwarts. Each features fabric patterned with the crest of the house of your choosing. Since they’re custom made, you’ve also got a little room to customize choosing either a tank or skater style and the option of short sleeves or even longer or shorter hems.

frozen Quinceañera 1

If Anna and Elsa were younger and went to the Arendelle High School prom, their dresses might look like these Quinceañera gowns. They’re poufy and sparkly, and I would happily wear one. I especially love all the ruffles on the purple and blue dress inspired by Anna. The Frozen dresses are part of the Disney Royal Ball line for spring 2015 and are priced at $530 and up.

With Halloween right around the corner, it looks like Black Milk’s Pulp Horror clothing collection is debuting at the perfect time. Starting on September 23, 2014 (for a limited time) you can pick up some items like this Cthulhu vs. Haunted House Inside Out dress, or the Mecha Leggings (which you can check out after the break).

comic con bag dress 1

What do you do with your giant swag bags after San Diego Comic-Con is over? Mine live in a closet and occasionally get used for storage, but io9 commenter stellastar42 turned her collection of bags into a lovely dress and hat. It took her five years to gather enough bags for the project – now that’s patience! She showed off the finished design at Comic-Con this year.

Check out more photos of the dress and matching hat after the break.

goodwill dalek dress

I don’t know about you, but I already feel like I scored a deal when I find clothes at a thrift shop that are in my size, perfect for my needs and less than 10 bucks, so I can’t even imagine the amount of happiness Reddit user Sarkany_Gyongyi must have felt when she found this home made Dalek dress in her size for 8 dollars.

Granted, it could be a really clever way for a Dalek to disguise itself for an invasion, but at that price, I think it’s worth the risk.

Rodarte debuted its Fall/Winter line back in February and it featured high fashion clothing adorned with Star Wars images that everyone loved. Now they’ve done an official photo shoot out at Skywalker Ranch with some of the characters in attendance. Who knew Threepio could strike a pose?
