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.

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.

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.

These simply beautiful shirts, skirts and dresses are the work of Etsy seller Frockasuarus (who we featured recently with her Game Of Thrones dress). She makes each piece by hand and they are made to order so there’s a lead time of anywhere from 4-10 weeks depending on the product. That’s a long wait, but if these pictures are any indication, it’ll be worth it. She’s got a wonderful range of products representing Star Trek,  The Hobbit, Legend of Zelda and more.

She’s temporarily shutdown her Etsy shop due to a flood of orders, but you can still head over there and sign up to be notified as soon as she’s ready to take on more work.

GoT dress 4

We’ve seen a lovely Game of Thrones skirt from Etsy shop Frockasaurus, but the store has also listed this attractive dress design featuring the same house sigils fabric. You can represent houses Targaryen, Greyjoy, Lannister, and many more with this black and white print. Dark gray cotton compliments the house sigils, and there’s plenty of pretty satin binding trim. This is going on my wish list.

The dress is made to order, and turnaround time is currently 8-10 weeks.

tardis dress 1

Doctor Who is back on television, and we’re in the mood for time travel. Nothing could be more perfect for that than this TARDIS dress by Etsy seller Smarmy Clothes. The strapless dress is made from printed TARDIS fabric exclusive to the Etsy store – there’s even a reflection of Big Ben in the TARDIS window panes.

The flared skirt dress is made to order, and the seamstress is happy to add spaghetti or halter-style straps if you’d prefer a little more support. Current turnaround time is 4-5 weeks.

tesla dress

Fashion incorporates electronics into designs more and more these days, but Anouk Wipprecht and ArcAttack took that to the next level with their plate metal, chainmail dress that serves as a Faraday cage. Wipprecht stood on a stage between two giant Tesla coils and withstood zaps of raw electricity. The dress is made from 600 rings of chainmail, a spiky metal helmet, toy plasma balls (they add yet another impressive touch), and plate mail.

See the dress in electrifying action after the break.

map dress 1

Tumblr user permetstu decided to make a Marauder’s Map dress for LeakyCon. However, she didn’t try to get the iconic imagery from Harry Potter printed onto a dress. Instead, she made the dress and drew the map on by hand with fine point Sharpies. I’m not even kidding. All those tiny lines, all those letters – it’s all done by hand. Just the text on the front of the dress took three and a half hours. I’d love to see the pile of used Sharpies it took to complete this project.

4th doctor dress

The 4th Doctor’s iconic scarf just got an upgrade. DeviantArt user RebelATS transformed it into a crocheted dress. She was inspired by seeing all the TARDIS and Dalek dresses and wanted to make something unique. She didn’t state how long it took to craft the ensemble, but since it’s 48 inches long, I imagine it was a lot of time with a crochet hook.

She plans to make a halter-top with this pattern and also to turn other items – like Jayne’s cunning hat from Firefly - into crocheted dresses.
