cosplay couture 1

Courtney Coulson and Luke Milton are taking costume photography to a new level. Their Cosplay Couture project merges cosplay and fashion photography with stunning results. They focus more on the “couture construction technique” rather than one hundred percent accuracy, and the effort means they’ve come up with designs that are both creative and impressive.

They’ve tackled costumes from comic books, shows such as Doctor Who, and movies like The Lone Ranger. They offer insight on the costume and the shoot with each of their posts, and I highly recommend following them on Tumblr.

See more of our favorites after the break.

selfie hat

If you thought the selfie hairbrush we posted the other day was silly, wait till you get a load of this Selfie-Hat by Acer UK and fashion designer Christian Cowan-Sanluis for London Fashion Week.

The Selfie-Hat spins 360 degrees to let you find you “best angle” and has an integrated Acer Iconia A-1 840 tablet. Acer explains:

“Whilst slowly moving the screen from left to right, not only does the selfie sombrero help the user finding their best angle, but also how to understand lighting, how various expressions can change your face and ultimately create the perfect social media moment”.

“Users can access any apps such as Facebook or Instagram whilst wearing the hat – being on social media never looked so glamorous,” Acer added.

Um…yeah…I got nothing.

Believe it or not, this hat can actually be purchased by appointment. Interested parties can contact “Hans” at the Acer press office for more info.

Rodarte debuted its Fall/Winter line back in February and it featured high fashion clothing adorned with Star Wars images that everyone loved. Now they’ve done an official photo shoot out at Skywalker Ranch with some of the characters in attendance. Who knew Threepio could strike a pose?

One of the things I love best about fashion these days is just how many companies have geek couture. Once upon a time, if you wanted to show your love for Star Wars, you had the option of a t-shirt or halloween costume, but it wasn’t the sort of thing you could wear if you wanted to dress up a bit.

Luckily, companies like We Love Fine are committed to making fashionable geekwear, and now they’ve teamed up with Goldie to create a Star Wars boutique collection.

My personal favorites are the Princess Leia Dress (complete with a hair buns hoodie), a very chic Empire Strikes Back skirt, and the Dark Side Glamour dress, but they have other great styles as well in sizes small to extra large.

Check out more pictures after the break.

guardians HPC POST

Guardians of the Galaxy has only been in theaters for a few days, but even before it hit the big screen, people were cosplaying the characters. Designer Sara Richard was inspired to create some very high fashion versions of both Groot and Rocket Raccoon, and she gave them yet another twist by making them women. The results are beautiful. Somebody, go cosplay these!

Check out Sara’s site for more amazing pop culture fashion designs.

BRITAIN-FASHION-MEN-MAN-BOBBY ABLEY

People of all ages and genders like Disney, so it only makes sense that there would be clothing for men inspired by Ariel and her friends. British designer Bobby Abley has come up with an entire collection for dudes featuring characters from The Little Mermaid. The sweatshirts and t-shirts in the line feature the likes of Sebastian, Ursula, and yes, even Ariel’s seashells. Abley used iridescent fabrics to keep the under the sea vibe. The collection will be out in 2015.

See more Little Mermaid-inspired attire (and a skateboard) after the break.

jem yoga pants

I’m not sure if these go in the “want!” or “NEED!” category, but they definitely go in the “awesome yoga pants” category and will showcase your love for Jem while you’re rocking a Feathered Peacock pose.

They’re in stock now and come in sizes small to 2XL.

nano block lego glasses

If you like building and you want something more than your everyday kind of boring sunglasses, these Nanaoblock sunglasses may be your ticket to cool, fun, playable fashion.

These sunglasses are compatible with Nanoblocks and have pegs all over them for lots of building opportunities.

We found a pretty good variety of sunglasses on Amazon for approximately $45.

Kirsten Dunst won all the geek fashion awards by wearing this beautiful Rodarte Star Wars dress to the Met Gala over the weekend.

You may remember seeing this dress on the runway recently as part of Rodarte’s Fall/Winter collection and, judging by the tweets, Kirsten’s dress was a huge hit.
