Full disclosure, I’ve recently become OBSESSED with the dresses made by Hardley Dangerous. I originally bought one of their Strapless Cherrybomb dresses in the hopes of one day using it as Scarlett Overkill Cosplay. However when it arrived I immediately ordered another one in black with cap sleeves. All the orders are handmade from when you order them. The craftsmanship is amazing, and the packaging is adorable. And every interaction I’ve had with the shop owners Claire and Chase has been nothing but wonderful.

I can not even begin to count how many compliments I got when I wore the dress to our office holiday party. Seriously, go check them out.

12 Days of Nerdy Entrepreneurs – Her Universe

There is no greater collection of nerdy lady clothing than Her Universe. And what an appropriate name for it. Her Universe is the vision of Ashley Eckstein. She founded the company in 2009 and suddenly lady nerds had something more than female-cut tees to wear to flaunt their nerd and flaunt it proud.

With licensing from franchises such at Star Wars, Star Trek, Marvel, Doctor Who and Transformers, Her Universe creates amazing apparel and accessories for the nerd girl in your life. Recently, the ladies of Its All Geek To Me sported the famed Iron Man Bomber Jacket at NYCC 2015 as Howard’s Angels. The jacket is both amazingly comfortable and such a fabulous nerd piece.

A dream of mine is to be able to be part of the Her Universe Fashion Show that happens San Diego Comic Con. The jackets that we are wearing above were designed by one of the winners in collaboration with Her Universe an Hot Topic. Several amazingly talented cosplayers and fashion designers have been showcased in this fashion show. Consider it added to the bucket list!

Men’s Fashion a la Marvel

Marvel has their finger on the pulse of the fandom and, apparently, now they have a needle in their hand. We girls have wonderful places like We Love Fine and Her Universe to get our geek fashion on, but what are the men left with? Unisex t-shirts and, if they are lucky enough to have a sewer in the life or have the money to burn, the get something one-of-a-kind. Well, seems Marvel heard you, men! You’re getting your own fashion line!
