I’m back from SDCC, and when I wasn’t having in-depth conversations on comics or dancing with Joss Whedon(!), I was soaking up all of the awesome in panels. This panel was my absolute favorite: 25 ladies showed off their homemade geek-inspired outfits to a panel of geek fashion experts. The panel left me so inspired, I’m already thinking up designs and ideas for my own geeky dresses!
Take a look at the top 6 contestants along with geek fashion advice from the panelists. Want to see more fashion? Pics of every single contestant are over on Facebook.
