Cosplayers may have been out in force this year at Comic-Con 2015, but the geeky fashionistas gave them a run for their money. Geek fashion was on the minds of many this year with the 2nd Annual Her Universe Fashion Show on Thursday night, two panels dedicated to the business and styling of geek fashion, and a standing-room only happy hour hosted by Fashionably Nerdy on Friday night. Walking the exhibit floor, I saw dozens of vendors featuring dresses, jewelry, purses, and more. Geeks of all shapes, sizes, ages and genders were celebrating their fandoms with original fashion ensembles. Here’s a few of the best trends seen on the floor.
The fashion and geek communities are in love with the 1940s and this retro trend showed up in outfits celebrating superheroes, villains, killer plants, and even Ghostbusters. These dresses showed off these geeks’ curves and fandoms.
Geeky leggings have been trending for several years now, but these fans really added their own unique style to the look by pairing them with creative pieces.
Geeky fashionistas have been celebrating a new trend where you channel your favorite characters into your fashion. None of these ensembles would look out of place walking down the street, but each is a nod to a personal geek favorite.
These creative fans created these custom pieces either from licensed fabrics or by constructing them completely from scratch. These geeks can do it all!
Hair and Accessories
Fashion isn’t all about clothing and these geeky ladies showed off their style with creative accessories and gorgeous hair color.
Last, but certainly not least, the men showed off their own style with vintage fashion, handmade pieces and everyday cosplay looks. After all, fashion isn’t just for female fans.
There are many ways to wear your heart and sometimes fandom on your sleeve. While you were at Comic-Con this year, what were some of the geeky fashions that turned your head?
