I realize that though I often talk about my geekiness, I rarely have been incorporating aspects of the geek into my wardrobe. I recently made this felt X-men pin to wear as if it was my own personal communications link. And I've also made some to pin onto my purse and wear as a clip on my hair. I'm not selling them in the shop yet, but if you're interested in purchasing them for yourself or for a die-hard X-men fan, email me. They're $6 apiece or 2 for $10, + shipping.

I've always been a hardcore X-men lover, ever since I watched the animated TV series back in the early 90s. I'm drawn not only to the mutant plight of human acceptance vs superiority, but also the complex and continuity-heavy relationships among the characters. I always get a kick whenever I can recognize references to decades-old events or mini factoids.  

To pay homage to the bright and bold color combinations of my favorite mutants, I stuck to a very simple color scheme for this outfit. I brought out this dress, which I think looks like a girl version of a super scientist speed suit, ala Rusty Venture. Then I applied a bright red lippie, because all superheroines wear bright red lips, right?

  1. Love this! Kayla is really into things like this, but me not so much. Either way I think your X-men pin is adorable paired with the blue dress and red shoes! Heather

  4. OH MY GOD BEST POST EVER!

    I also love X-Men and that pin is so fantastic!
    I recently made myself a similar style pok├ęball pin which I like to pin on my belts.
    I love your fantastically geeky nod to X-Men heroines.

    I'm still sort of convinced that Gambit is going to stroll into my world some day, all red-eyed and sexy.

    I probably shouldn't admit that...

  5. YES. BRIGHT RED LIPS. ;) I loved X-men as a child, though I only watched the cartoons and didn't read any of the comics or anything like that.

  19. I love a blue/red combination like you have going on here. It's one of my favorites when I'm dealing with color. I think it's so fun to incorporate subtle geek touches into fashion. I hope you continue to do it in such a chic way.
