Geek Fashion: Comicon Outfit

ECCC Outfit

You don’t have to cosplay or wear a t-shirt to rock a comicon-appropriate outfit (although those are perfectly awesome things to do as well). For those times when you want to dress up a bit for a panel or a party,  I recommend an outfit like the one I wore on Friday of Emerald City Comicon. Prefer a bit more color? You can pair the skirt and necklace with a comic shirt of your choice or a bright red, yellow, or blue top.

I made the skirt out of this fabric from Joann and some simple elastic. I haven’t sewn in a while, and I started and finished the project with time to spare while watching a movie. Use this tutorial, and you can make your own skirt too! (Seriously. It’s SUPER easy.) Not loving the elastic waist? Just put a belt over it, like I did here.

My Pow necklace was from Hot Topic, but Amazon and Etsy both have some great options.

Boots are a great way to add a bit of heel (or Superhero kick) to your outfit without hurting your feet too much. But flats would look just as nice!

I look forward to wearing the skirt to other functions like parties, ladies’ nights, and some events at other cons. I may even try my hand at sewing a few more before SDCC!

What’s your go-to comicon outfit?
