direwolf leggings

We have another entrant in the “makers of very cool leggings” department. These Game Of Thrones inspired leggings by Poprageous are made in Los Angeles and “sweatshop free” according to their site. Poprageous owner Cher also says they’re constantly on the look out for new designs inspired by art and pop culture.

Head after the break for more of the legging designs.

Maleficent  batwing pullover

There was a point there when I began to despair for Hot Topic because there was absolutely nothing I wanted, but now I’m worried because they have so much stuff I want that they’re going to make me broke!

They’ve already created some gorgeous Disney items, but this time they’ve partnered with Disney on a Maleficent clothing line that is more about fashion inspired by the movie than branded merchandise and, I have to say, I like it. Especially the Batwing pullover hoodie.

Lots of pictures after the break.

super mario shirt main

While the fashion world has definitely opened up to a variety of geek fashion, there are still lots of clothes we may wish we had but can’t buy off the rack.

Say, for instance, this stylish Super Mario shirt.

Instructables contributor mactothefuture not only made it, but has given the world a tutorial on how to make you own, right down to custom printing the fabric, which opens up the possibility to anything you can imagine.

For now, you admire the keen style and epic nature of this Super Mario shirt in more pictures after the break.

Her Universe will be presenting the first-ever geek couture fashion show and design competition at San Diego Comic-Con this year, and if you’re an aspiring designer then your fashions could appear in the show. Initially, there will be thirty contestants chosen from the pool of submissions. Anyone can win by entering a design at Her Universe. These have to be clothing designs, not cosplay costumes, and they can come from any fandom, but must be submitted by April 4th.

Thirty winners will be chosen by April 18th and they’ll have their fashions featured at the show. Designers can choose to have a model wear their work or they can choose to strut down the runway in their own design. Those thirty contestants will then be whittled down to two grand prize winners at the show with one being chosen by an expert panel of judges and the other being selected by the audience.

Grand prize winners will each get the chance to co-design a Her Universe fashion collection for Hot Topic along with Ashley Eckstein (who happens to look fantastic in this Darth Vader couture piece).

You might see folks with tattoos and denim vests covered in buttons and pins and patches wandering around Disneyland and think they’re in a gang. The reality is that Neverlanders SC is actually a social club of hardcore Disney fans who have regularly scheduled gatherings at the park. They have an active community of 60 members that even includes kids.

Check out more on Vice who spent one afternoon with the group and shares their wonderful story.

This may well be one of the best examples of fashionably geek that we’ve ever seen.

Betabrand recently put out a casting call for new models and looked for a very specific type of woman to model their new Spring clothing line; women who have doctorates or are doctoral candidates. Bravo, Betabrand.

firefly quotes dress

Browncoats get a lot of different Firefly apparel, but usually dresses tend to fall into the Kaylee Shindig dress category.

That sort of frilliness is great for cosplay, but not so much for daily wear or any kind of activity, which is why we like this Gorram Skater Dress by Complicated Spoon Clothing.

The dress has a Firefly quote pattern with many favorite sayings from our Big Damn Heroes and it looks really comfortable.

See more after the break, including a close up of the pattern.

paper dresses 5

Meet 4-year old fashion designer Mayhem. Well, okay, Mayhem’s not her real name – it’s the name her mom Angie gave her daughter once she started posting pictures of the paper dresses she and her daughter started creating.

This all started when Angie noticed Mayhem wasn’t all that into princess dresses, but she was all excited about wrapping herself in scarves and bedsheets to create dresses for herself. Which must have led to a serious increase in laundry and ultimately led to a new construction material.

Paper.

Wrapping paper, construction paper, tissue paper, even plastic bags depending on what they wanted to make. Angie says that the designs are a 50/50 split, and Mayhem helps as much as possible with the taping and gluing. Even when Angie’s doing some of the outfit building, Mayhem’s right there, watching and learning.

The results are pretty amazing.

Between their website and Instagram, Angie and Mayhem sure have a lot of fans and I’m pretty sure they’re inspiring all sorts of budding fashionistas all over the world.

Check out more of Mayhem’s killer fashion after the break.

The latest designs from deviantArtist Sasha feature high-fashion looks based on The Avengers, Studio Ghibli and Rise of the Guardians. She previously made a series of Disney designs that are equally as drool-worthy.

Here’s some high fashion that nerds can understand. It’s Rodarte’s Fall/Winter line and it features dresses with images of Yoda, Luke, C-3PO and the Death Star. The internet, predictably, went absolutely crazy over the designs and tweeted their enthusiastic approval.
