Comic-Con’s Geek Couture Fashion Show Featuring Wearables! #WearableWednesday
POPSUGAR Tech has a great post on some of the most awesome Geek Couture from comic-con and there are plenty of cool wearables projects mixed in! Seen above is a couture iteration of Iron Man.
Here in San Diego, the devil wears Divergent. We attended the first ever Comic-Con geek couture fashion show on July 24 — and we were absolutely blown away. Fandom fashion retailer Her Universe called upon the galaxy’s most stylish designers, both professional and amateur, to present their original, handmade creations on the runway.
What we saw was not cosplay. Oh no, these gowns could have belonged on the pages of Vogue or at New York Fashion Week. As one of the designers put it: for those who aren’t geeks, the clothing would just seem cute and unique, but for those who are geeks and can recognize the reference, the garment has a special twist.
Check out this awesome Battlestar Galactica Cylon dress! Super cool.
And a gorgeous light-changing Euhedral Crystal dress with tiara!

I’m so happy that I got added to the blog! Fangirl moment. I did want to shout out because the Euhedral Crystal dress was mine, and was made using Ada Fruit neopixels and Neopixel rings and the tiara was from the tutorial!
