Fandom Five: geeky wardrobe takeover!

10 October 2014

AdorkableMe: fandom five

Last week was a lot of fun! Reminiscing over our varied, but oh-so-similar, geeky childhoods! It was a really good introductory topic for this and a great way to get to know people even more.

This week our topic is:
Geeky Clothing Items I Need in My Closet Immediately!

I’ve been slowly going through my wardrobe over the last year to finally get rid of things I’m not wearing any more for whatever reason. I’m sadly a clothing hoarder. When I moved into this cozy studio, I had to get rid of a lot of my stash of clothing and shoes. And in that, I managed to get rid of 14 bags. Yes. 14. And yes, after that is when I started going through stuff again. Because I still have too many clothes that I either don’t wear or don’t fit properly any more.

All that to say… I would love a wardrobe overhaul. And while, yes, I do need work appropriate clothes and such… I can’t help but want to let my geek flag fly loud and proud and emblazoned on my clothing. How I’m going to limit this to just 5 things is beyond comprehension.

fightin' words gloves

1. Fightin’ Words fingerless gloves » These are fantastic. And with the weathering taking a turn for the chill, as it does in Fall, these would be the perfect accessory! The pattern for these is available here. I think I might have to get it and see if my gram can make these for me…

ThinkGeek: Curiouser and Curiouser

2. Curiouser & Curiouser tee » I’ve been eyeing this shirt from ThinkGeek for a while now. In fact, I’m always afraid it’s going to go out of stock before I can actually get it. I love that it’s a relaxed fit, and even more the focal point: the line from Alice in Wonderland.

Dino My Gosh dress from ModCloth

3. Dino My Gosh dress » Not only do these colors look great on me… This dino dress is super super cute! The cut is classy enough to make the dino print not feel too immature. And the colors. Sadly, though, ModCloth does not have it in my size right now.

Suckers Apparel: Marvel Dress

4. Marvel Dress » I’ve got B to thank for finding this dress by Suckers Apparel. I have to admit, though, no, I have not read any Captain Marvel comics. I just love this dress. It’s loud and graphic and fun.

Red Panda Kigurumi Onesie

5. Red Panda Kigurumi » I mean. How could I not include a Kigurumi? And I would look ridiculously cute in this Red Panda one. I think I have a special bond with Red Pandas. Most likely due to getting to hold one at the Panda Breeding Center in Chengdu, Sichuan. They’re adorable. And fluffy. But not in a soft way. Anyway. It’d just be so fun to have one of these and to dance around and shake that little tail.

    My BFF has that dino dress and it’s even cuter in person! And I love the fingerless gloves!

    • That’s so good to hear! Once it’s back in stock in my size, soooo snatching it up! 🙂

  • Yes! Suckers Apparel is one of my favorite designers!!

    • I’ve just recently gotten introduced to Suckers Apparel. Loving their work! Just gotta save up so I can get some of my own!

  • Ahhh! I love the dinosaur dress! Everything is pointing to the fact that I really need to check out ModCloth more often. I’m hopeless at this fashion thing, lol.

    • ModCloth has some ridiculously cute stuff. However, I will say, the first dress I bought for them not only fit terribly but just felt like design school work which was not worth $70. It wasn’t even lined. 🙁 BUT… they’ve got an AMAZING community, so definitely read the reviews!

      And my fashion this past month: sweats. 100%. And completely covered in cat hair. lol

    Those gloves are perfect! Such a fan!

    • I know! I should scour etsy to see if anyone has made them so I can have them now… and not in the random colors my gram will ultimately use.

  • That Dino dress is GORG!!! I love it and it’s subtle! The Marvel dress is also super cute, I love the boldness of it!

    • I know! I love it! I really really hope they bring back my size! And I’d like to think that if the Marvel dress was in my wardrobe, I wouldn’t be too chicken to wear it. 99.9% of my current wardrobe is no where near as bold as that dress!

    The dinosaur dress is perfect, and that cut always looks good! I’m so glad you added a Kigurumi…everyone needs one!

    • I’m pretty sure if I had a Kigurumi right now, I’d probably wear it every single day. 🙂

  • That Dino Dress! The Red Panda Kigurumi! So freakin’ awesome. Great finds!

    • Thanks!! 🙂 I had fun putting this together!

  • I WANT A KIGURUMI SO BADLY! Either fox or red panda. x.x

    • Their fox one is cute too! It’s hard to choose just one kigurumi. 😉

  • I’ve always been a clothing hoarder too, so getting rid of a ton of clothes last month was such a relief.

    I need that dino print dress in my closet now. I would also love to own a Kigurumi! It would be so fun to lounge in.

  • Dino dress!! Also, I’ve been considering getting a new kigu and red panda is on my list. I’ve bought from Kigurumi.ca before and I think they are just a fabulous company, so I am glad you linked to them. <3

  • MeghanSara

    WOAH THOSE GLOVES! I love them! I recently bought a unicorn kigurumi on Amazon and I highly recommend it! Take the plunge!

    • I’m keeping my fingers crossed for those gloves for Christmas from my Gram. I sent the pattern to my mom to send her… but not sure that’ll happen but I’m hopeful! 🙂
