Tech inspired look with Future Cities Leggings by Bombsheller

I've featured these rad "Future Cities" leggings from Bombsheller before, but wanted to remind you that the discount code for Geeky Glamorous readers has been renewed! You can save 10% on your Bombsheller order with code:
GEEKYGLAMOROUS

I've washed these leggings multiple times now (air drying) and they've held up super! No loss of stretch or color on these bad boys. These aren't cheapy, thin leggings. The spandex is thick, never sheer, and really pulls you in making them very flattering. They've got a huge array of designs available and even have an artist program where you can design and sell your own pairs!

I went for a more techy, cyber look with the Future Cities leggings this go round. The Daft Punk tee was a custom birthday gift from my girl szmoon at Lunar Descent. ♥

Leggings: Bombsheller
Top: Lunar Descent
Shoes: Dr. Martens

Thor inspired look with Mjolnir necklace from Level Up Crafts

Don't get me wrong, I love a good geek logo or symbol on some of my apparel but my favorite geek chic items are those that are subtle. Kudos to designers who create items that require a double take to figure out their origin fandom. My friend April over at Level Up Crafts gifted me this adorable Mjolnir inspired necklace or "Mew Mew" as Thor film fans may know it by.

The necklace is strung on a copper color chain which is appropriate. I think of brushed metals in muted tones for Viking jewelry. The hammer portion has specs of glitter in it and the handle is painted to mimic a real, leather wrapped hilt. Nice detailing April!

I took inspiration from the Icelandic wilderness and forests of Valhalla for this woodsy, earthy outfit.

Necklace: Level Up Crafts
Dress: LIFE Clothing 
Faux Fur Collar: H&M
Tights: Target 
Cuff: Wet Seal
Boots: Steve Madden 









April takes such care into each and every item she makes. She's shown me her work space and she's even made a bunch of custom molds for her resin pieces, the hammer included!. Her layering ability and attention to detail is superb. You know you're getting a thoughtfully, well-made piece when purchasing. Make sure to like Level Up Crafts on Facebook and Etsy. Thanks April!

OOTD - Sci-Fi inspired look with Circuit Dress from Shenova

A huge thank you to all of who attended the Geek Fashion Panel at Comikaze Expo over Halloween weekend! I am so grateful to have been a part of it. Thanks to the lovely Crystal of Geek Pinata for asking me to participate again this year.

If you attended the panel you would have caught me in this fantastic circuitry bodycon dress from Shenova. Thank you so much to the creator, Holly for sending me this. I've worn it twice already since the panel, haha!

Shenova specializes in geek chic but not in the licensed super hero kind of way. All her pieces incorporate rad science or tech themed prints such as the below Little Black Circuit Dress, this stunning Earthrise Maxi, or Moon Phases Dress.

Make sure you give her a favorite on Etsy! All her items can be custom tailored to fit your specific size. The material is super soft, stretchy, and great quality (not that gross, turns sheer when it stretches kind of spandex). Thanks for being such a pleasure to work with, Holly!

Dress: Shenova
Jacket: Ross
Optimus Prime Pin: Universal Studios
Necklace: GameStop
Purse: Jefferey Campbell
Boots: UNIF

Blade Runner inspired look with leggings from Bombsheller

Let me preface by saying I am so sorry for the long hiatus on blog posts friends! I've been bogged down with work and other obligations but not to fret, Geeky Glamorous will be returning gung-ho very soon! In the meantime, I am very excited to post about these AMAZING new leggings I received from the lovelies over at Bombsheller! Bookmark it babes, this is one spandex company you'll want on your tight pants radar.

Have you ever wanted to create your own design to feature on leggings? Bombsheller has got you covered! You can submit your own design and after some approvals (making sure the art is the correct size and adapting it for printing) you can see your design on leggings for sale! All Bombsheller leggings start at $69 and you set your own royalty on top of that, so there's no stolen artwork here, artists are credited and PAID for their designs.

The possibilities here are endless and the current design offerings on Bombsheller are astounding. It was -really- difficult for me to pick just one pair. Here's how my leggings arrived,

The logo, washing instructions and size are all printed onto the garment. What this means? NO ITCHY TAGS, AW YISS. The package included a washing instructions card and my invoice.

What I was most impressed with? The artist and designer are both credited and printed into the fabric as well the design's official hashtag.

The sci-fi nerd in me just had to go with the Future Cities leggings with artwork by Diliff and design by Mandroid. If you couldn't already tell, these are inspired by Blade Runner and feature a gritty, futuristic Los Angeles cityscape.

The fabric quality is super fab, really pulls you in without feeling constricting. These are high-quality leggings I assure you, no snags or pilling! I am wearing a size medium for reference and am 5'8". I typically wear a size 7/8 pant.


Want to get your own pair? Visit the Bombsheller shop and make sure to give them some Instagram and Facebook love!

April O'Neil inspired look sponsored by Sammy Dress

Despite the reservations about the new live-action Teenage Mutant Turtle Movie, I am thrilled to see a revival in TMNT toys, collectibles, and fans! I grew up watching TMNT and always "played" April O'Neil on the playground as a kid. When Sammy Dress contacted me about a reviewing an item from their site I knew I had to go with this awesome clutch bag! I thought the pattern mimicked a turtle shell and this look was born.

The clutch arrived in a dust bag (always appreciated) and was much larger than I expected! A pleasant surprise really, you could likely store a small laptop or tablet in this. The bag is made of some sort of faux leather and is soft to the touch.

Inside lining is brown (keeping with the turtle theme here, heh) with a side pocket and optional chain strap! The bag zips closed and features all gold hardware. Both the wrist strap and chain attach with lobster clasps making the transition from shoulder bag to clutch a breeze.


I styled my turtle clutch with a yellow jumpsuit, leather boots from Steve Madden, thigh high socks from Target, and a matching green hair bow. If I had just had a microphone...hehe.


Overall, I am quite pleased with the quality of this bag. For just $9.57 you can pick this bag which is also available in metallic silver or gold. Make sure to check out SammyDress for more affordable fashion buys!
