Women’s Apparel

valar morghulis

One of the many memorable phrases we’ve learned from Game of Thrones is “Valar morghulis.” The High Valyrian words translate to “All men must die.” This shirt takes the quote and mashes it with a healthy dose of feminism by adding, “Yes, all men.” I think both Daenerys Targaryen and Arya Stark would wear this sweatshirt with pride.

It’s fall, but if you’re a superheroine or supervillainess there’s still time to wear a light and comfy dress. This Wonder Woman dress is perfect for cruising around in an invisible jet on a warm day. If you’re looking for something a bit more evil, there are also Joker and Harley Quinn-themed dresses to choose from. You can check those out after the break.

Women in Japan are going to have one more choice in sanitary napkins this November with the introduction of a whole line inspired by Sailor Moon Crystal. According to Sailor Moon Collectibles:

Ultra Guard Safe Until Morning (navy blue packaging): these are made for wear overnight when you’re asleep, they are thicker for quick absortion and have fitted leak guards. 330: 33cm, 16 pieces per pack, 360: 36cm, 14 pieces per pack, 400: 40cm, 12 pieces per pack.
Ultra Guard Gokusui (white packaging): these are made for wear during the daytime when you’re active, they are slim and comfortable. Pink: 20.5cm, 26 pieces per pack, Orange: 24cm, 21 pieces per pack, Green: 27cm, 16 pieces per pack.

This is an officially licensed product, too, not just some weird knockoff although it really seems like it should be a joke.

dc oh noes

Female geek friendly apparel has come such a long way that it almost hurts my neck from whiplash when I see something this…bad.

The Superman version first came to my attention thanks to a tweet by fellow Fashionably Geek contributor Alan Kistler (thank you Alan!) which cut pretty much to the heart of why they were so…icky. Apparently,  Wonder Woman is a thing to win and girls can only grow up to be Batman’s wife. Amazingly, someone at DC approved these designs.

It’s a bummer because there are a lot of licensed tees out there that empower women to BE the superhero instead of belonging to one.

In this day and age, it’s too bad that these these regressions still happen. However, I content myself with the knowledge that, overall, things are better than they used to be and that we’re making strides all the time.

Anovos is a high-end prop and costuming company that specializes in producing top-notch replicas of classic outfits from Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek and Star Wars. In the past, the company only carried costumes for women from BSG and Star Trek, but it looks like things are about to change. This month, Anovos released a survey asking customers what kinds of Star Wars outfits they would like to see–especially costumes worn by female characters in the films!

The survey asks for some key info, including gender, size requirements,  and details on the specific outfits from the films (that includes generic uniforms and special costumes) that you would like to see become a reality. There are a lot of outfits listed (Mon Mothma’s dress is even in there), so here’s hoping that some of it actually gets made. After completing the survey, you’ll receive a discount code as a bit of thanks for being involved.

Kaylee’s fancy party dress from the episode “Shindig” has seen a lot of action. It’s a popular choice for Firefly cosplayers and, if this comic is any indication, it’s managed to sneak its way into the wardrobes of geeks everywhere.

Ever wonder what it would be like to have a clone of yourself? Well, with the DOTA 2 Meepo Cowl you can finally clone up to four versions of yourself! Eh… just kidding. This Cowl doesn’t have any special cloning powers. Still, it’s made from a comfy jersey knit/cotton blend, and the ears are made from something called Velboa, with is a very soft acrylic fabric. So, no on the cloning and teleporting, but yes in regards to the cowl being extremely comfortable. At least that’s something, right?

Check out another picture of the cowl after the break…

The Elsa one is blue trimmed with white, lighter blue and crystal accents. The Anna corset is currently on sale and features warmer colors and lovely embroidered flowers. They could be worked into costumes or worn as part of an everyday ensemble.
