comic con bag dress 1

What do you do with your giant swag bags after San Diego Comic-Con is over? Mine live in a closet and occasionally get used for storage, but io9 commenter stellastar42 turned her collection of bags into a lovely dress and hat. It took her five years to gather enough bags for the project – now that’s patience! She showed off the finished design at Comic-Con this year.

Check out more photos of the dress and matching hat after the break.

Capture

Lots of people get started cosplaying as kids, and the ones that show up for SDCC are often some of the best of the bunch. Filmmaker Patrick Willems and Kendra Pettis roamed the halls of the convention and stopped to ask the kids who they were cosplaying and why. Their answers are possibly more adorable than their costumes.

sdcc cosplay

San Diego Comic-Con may be a celebration of all things geeky, but our favorite part here at Fashionably Geek is definitely the cosplay. Aggressive Comix put together this epic cosplay montage that proves cosplayers are some of the most creative and talented people around.

Keep in mind that Jules of this incredible Pulp Fiction cosplay opens the video with some very Jules (and there by NSFW) language. So you may want to use your headphones.

Check out the video after the break.

adam savage alien

Adam Savage has made it a habit to walk around conventions in costumes that disguise his identity while being totally awesome. This year he went big and dressed in an exact replica of a space suit from Alien. Savage told Tested he’s been working on the ensemble for ten years, and it’s a lot of fun to watch him talk about the project because he’s clearly excited about it.

Get a look at the costume in the video after the break.

HU fashion show 12

Her Universe brought geeky haute couture to San Diego Comic-Con last night with its first ever fashion show. Hosted at a room in the Hyatt by Her Universe, Hot Topic, and Nerdist, the event showcased work from both amateur and professional designers and took a moment to show off new items in the Her Universe collection – including a peek at apparel from their Studio Ghibli partnership.

The designers entered a contest online with a chance to participate in the fashion show and win the opportunity to work with Her Universe and Hot Topic to design a line of geek chic apparel. There were 36 designers, and they didn’t kid around. There were dresses and ensembles based on characters such as Marty McFly, Doctor Doom, Death, Kara Thrace, Loki, and so many more. Some outfits incorporated LEDs and impressive transformations, and more than a few of them included dangerous looking high heels. I was floored by the creativity on display.

There were a dazzling array of haute couture designs, and it was lovely to see geek apparel get fashion week treatment. I’ve never been to a show like this, but the runway and sea of blinking flashes from cameras looked just like what I’ve seen on television. I think these designs were much cooler than most (with the possible exception of the Rodarte Star Wars dresses).

The Evil Queen and Marty McFly took home top prizes. Designer Andrew MacLaine created a look based on Regina Mills from Once Upon a Time. The dress changed from an everyday look to a stunning black ensemble. The transformation made the crowd go wild. Amy Beth Christenson came up with a rocking design that captured the essence of Back to the Future; it looked futuristic and awesome – the crowd oohed and aahed when the ensemble made its entrance onto the runway.

See several hot looks from the runway after the break.

During the Her Universe Fashion Show at San Diego Comic-Con, Ashley Eckstein of Her Universe revealed a new line of clothing featuring characters from Studio Ghibli! She teased the team-up on Instagram recently and confirmed it by donning a haute couture Totoro dress at the fashion show.

Models wore items from the new Ghibli including tank tops and a Totoro cosplay dress. The Studio Ghibli items will be available exclusively at Hot Topic beginning this holiday season, and there will be designs for both men and women. My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki’s Delivery Service will be the first titles in the collection, but others will follow.
