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.

This beautiful The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time dress is just the thing to wear through the hot summer months. It’s got an allover design featuring images from the game on an 86% polyester 14% spandex blend for a snug fit. And guys, you don’t have to feel left out because there’s also a t-shirt version with the same design. The dress is on pre-order with delivery in about 3-4 weeks, but the shirt is ready to ship.

UPDATE: It’s come to our attention that this design was created by tumblr user purplekecleon and Poprageous used it for their dress without permission from the artist. The dress has since been removed from sale.

Get stylish with just about every Pokémon creature in the Pokédex by wearing this skater dress from Poprageous. It’s covered with pocket monsters, but you don’t have to be a trainer to rein them in. You do have to be prepared to deal with an intense amount of cuteness though.

Hatsune Miku is a hugely popular Japanese pop star who technically doesn’t exist. She’s actually a hologram that has been programmed to sing, but not being real doesn’t stop her from performing to sold out concerts throughout the country. Now you can turn yourself into a holographic pop star with this cosplay dress that’s perfect for the warm summer weather.

she-ra-skater-dress.1

She-Ra, AKA the Princess of Power, is no push-over. She wields an indestructible sword, occasionally hangs with He-Man and throughly enjoys kicking butt. Sure, her outfit might not be the most practical for battle, but she beats up Skeletor on a regular basis without breaking a sweat, so she can pretty much do and wear whatever she wants. I can’t promise that you’ll have the strength to tear down mountains if you don this She-Ra skater dress, but you’ll at least look the part.

Maleficent dress

In Disney’s live-action Maleficent, the fairy mostly wore dark and earthy colors. In Sleeping Beauty though, she wore a black cape lined with purple. This A-line dress from ThinkGeek emulates that pattern. The comfortable looking dress is so subtle that most people won’t get the connection unless you add the character’s signature horns. However, you’ll know you’re dressed like Maleficent, and that’s all that matters.

Castiel dress 1

Castiel is a fan favorite on Supernatural, and I constantly see cosplay of the angel at conventions. It’s usually female fans doing genderswapped cosplay, and this dress by Etsy seller Lameasaurus would be perfect for that purpose. The dress features Castiel’s suit, tie, and iconic trench coat and would work as a costume or everyday outfit. It’s made to order and ready to ship in 2-3 weeks.

Just in time for summer, Her Universe has debuted two new Doctor Who aline dresses and a tank shirt. The first dress is all about the villains with daleks, cybermen, and weeping angels everywhere. The second dress is for having a little cosplay fun and turns you into the 11th Doctor. And if dresses aren’t you’re thing, there’s always the “I Never Know Why, I Only Know Who.” tank t-shirt.

See more pictures after the break (including a close up of the pattern on the villains dress).

Bad Password dress

Want to get an idea of what passwords not to use? You simply have to look at Lorrie Cranor’s bad password dress. She gathered information on the weakest and most commonly used passwords, used a word cloud tool, and edited the design to create a dress showing off a whole bunch of password no-nos. Some examples from the print: 12345, password, princess, and abc123. There are a ton more that might make you rethink your current choices.

Want to make a dress or tote out of the bad password fabric? You can buy it on Spoonflower.

cos

This dress is made entirely out of several years worth of the bags they hand out to Comic-Con attendees. It’s the creation of DeviantArtist Bandoodie who is, unsurprisingly, a huge fan of the convention. She made it using a Butterick dress pattern and then wore the creation to the con that served as inspiration.
