robe harley quinn 1

The options for nightwear just keep getting geekier. There are enough costume robes these days that you could curl up in a different one every day for a month. Kinda cool, no? ThinkGeek has three new options for your closet: Batman, Harley Quinn, and a Walking Dead sheriff robe. Each design features appropriate touches: Batman ears, Harley Quinn’s jester hat, and fake gashes. Plus, they’re all made from polyester.

See the Batman and Walking Dead robes after the break.

renaissance batman

Photographer Sacha Goldberger recently took part in a photo exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris. He created positively stunning portraits of comic book superheroes and villains, Star Wars, and Disney characters as they would appear in 16th century art. He spent two years creating his Super Flemish series (inspired by Flemish paintings) and worked with a team of twelve people to get the makeup, hair, and special effects just right. Five costume designers made the outfits for the characters in the series including: Batman, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, R2-D2, Darth Vader, Hulk, and many more.

The photos have been retouched, but even without that, this series is absolutely magical. The art looks like paintings rather than photographs. Plus, the likenesses to actors like Christopher Reeve and Lynda Carter (an effect created with makeup and lighting) is uncanny at times.

Check out more of Goldberger’s amazing images after the break.

1cc5_harley_quinn_ladies_pajama_set

After a long day of robbing banks and beating up Gotham’s finest with a certain Mr. J, you’d probably like to head back home and slip into a comfy pair of pjs, right? If so, I’d recommend trying out this Harley Quinn Ladies’ Pajama Set. They feature an elastic waistband and cuffs along with glittery diamonds. I’m not sure if they fit the asylum dress code, so that might be an issue.

1cb6_batman_flipeez_kids_hat

The weather is going to get cold soon and this hat will keep your kids warm and have them looking fantastic. It’s a Batman laplander with wings on the sides and when you squeeze the left tassel it activates a pump that makes the wings flap! There’s also one with Michelangelo of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with swinging nunchuks.

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.
