Geek Fashion DIY Roundup

Summer is well and upon us here in Montreal and I’m slowly unchaining myself from my laptop to get out and about a bit more. However, now that I’m not hiding out with nobody to impress but my cat, I’m starting to feel a little dissatisfied with my current wardrobe.

But what’s a humble (and broke) Gamerwife to do? To the internets! Where a myriad of geek fashion DIY tutorials can be found. Here are some of my favourites.

DIY Comic Book T-Shirt
Set To Stunning featured this excellent comic themed t-shirt redo, but you could easily change it to incorporate a video game motif. I’d probably try it with a DIY silk screen.

Lego Barette DIY Being Geek Chic
Lizzie over at Being Geek Chic shared this super simple DIY for making a Lego barette. Subtle, yet geeky.

Nerdy DIY Fashion comic book heels
I would probably break my neck trying to walk in these amaze-balls comic book decoupage stiletos, but the technique could easily be applied to something of a more reasonable height for a klutz like me. Where’s that stack of old Nintendo Powers hiding, again? via So Geek Chic

And finally, the Suicide Girls (I know) has teamed up with American Apparel (I know), Bubble Punch, and Meltdown Comics to bring you a whole series of tutorial videos on how to transform American Apparel pieces into awesome nerdy costumes, just in time for ComicCon. via The Geeky Hostess
