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:
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!
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.

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!
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!
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!

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.
