Formal Attire


Karen and Charles Kent (yes Kent!) have a thing for Superman—Smallville in particular. The couple’s wedding was inspired by the long running series about Clark Kent, with the event actually taking place at Hatley Castle in British Columbia. You may recognize it as the Lex Luthor mansion from the series. It’s also been featured in the X-Men films and on Arrow. It’s the superhero/villain estate of choice.

Their wedding featured red, blue, and yellow colors in the classiest way possible, and the groom donned a Superman cape for parts of the event. They even explored Smallville filming locations during their honeymoon.

As you’ll see in the pictures and video after the break, it’s a nerdy dream wedding done right.

If you’re planning to get Dad a tie this holiday, hold up. Binary Winter has designs that are interesting, a little bit nerdy, and artistic at the same time.

The designs are created and illustrated by Cody and Shea, who silk screen every item by hand and who are committed to keeping it vegan and eco-friendly.

You also don’t pay a lot for that extra homemade love. The ties run $24 and are just some of the things you can find at their Etsy shop.

Head after the break to see more designs.

It’s no fun having to wear a tie, unless it’s one of these silk space shuttle console neckties. They’re available in either narrow or standard widths in a variety of colors. Each has communications systems diagrams of the space shuttle and will put you in the company of real astronauts. From the product page:

Our spacecraft schematic and blueprint neckties have thus far graced the necks of the following astronauts: Scott Carpenter, Mercury-Atlas 7; Thomas Stafford Apollo 10; Neil Armstrong Apollo 11; Dick Gordon & Al Bean, Apollo 12; Al Worden, Apollo 15; and Charlie Duke, Apollo 16. (Really! We even have pictures!)

Just think, should you be called upon to fly a shuttle, all you;ll have to do is look at your tie and you’ll be good to go.

Prom season is drawing to a close, but if you’re still looking for inspiration for a dress to wear, we suggest looking to a classic pop culture institution: Disney. Between princesses and villains it’s no surprise that a number of prom gowns have been created with certain Disney characters in mind. We found dresses specifically inspired by Disney that might be the perfect fit for your magical night.

Of course it’s not just the dress you need for prom, but the cosmetics to match. If your dress is already Disney-inspired, then why not continue the pop culture theme with some geeky cosmetics? Have some fun matching your makeup colors to your gown for an extraordinary, stunning look.

After the break discover eight pairings of Disney-inspired dresses with some beautifully geeky cosmetics that will make you the nerdy belle of the ball!

Show your love for gaming and look snazzy at the same time with High Roller ties from Etsy seller Binary Winter Press. The cool design is slik-screened by hand with black or silver ink on a microfiber satin tie. You can choose from Rogue Red, Paladin Purple, Tiamat Teal, or Black Magic. Or, you could just buy one of each color to ensure you’ll have a tie to go with each of your shirts and suits.

I’m thinking the only person that could afford this suit is Tony Stark, and likely he could make good use of it if caught without his armor. It’s made by a company called SuitArt based out of Switzerland and keeps you safe with Diamond Armor that involves actual diamonds.

Furthermore, the lapels and buttons contain 880 tiny black diamonds to give you a little sparkle as you go about your day. It’s also waterproof and air-conditioned, because if you’re springing for a bulletproof, diamond encrusted suit, it’s simply ridiculous not to have it air conditioned. Each suit is custom fitted to the purchaser and includes a matching 24-carat gold silk tie.

We all know bow ties are cool, but when they’ve got Doctor Who designs they’re even cooler. Each of these bow ties features elements from the world of Doctor Who like the seal of Rassilon, the TARDIS and even Gallifreyan symbols.

Shailey and John DeBroeck’s wedding looks like it incorporated elements from several fandoms. The part that amazes me is that it all looks subtle and classy instead of over the top! You can spot touches including Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Batman, and other superheroes from both DC and Marvel. And, at least one of their rings was made from dinosaur bone (probably similar to these). I really enjoy the way they worked their various fandoms into their big day, and I think you will, too.

triforce silk tie 1

Add another heart on the life bar of your day by wearing the Triforce. This beautifully printed silk tie from Level Up Studios is geeky but still subtle enough to blend into a corporate setting. It would look great with gray or even pale yellow button-ups. Wearing this tie would make any suit a power suit.
