Five Fandom Friday: Favorite Stores To Get Geeky Wears/Wares

Five Fandom Friday is a thing that was started by Megan and Kristin! You can read more about it at their respective blogs but it's pretty much a list of 5 things from a pre-determined topic! Today's theme is favorite stores to buy geeky items!!

It was tough when I was a kid, teenager, young adult when it came to finding geeky items may it be clothing, jewelry, house wares... it was hard but now a lot more companies have stepped up and started making items for me! Here are five of my favorites!

1. JORDANDENE!

I discovered Jordandene through the Geek Girls Blogger group on Google +. I got the chance to review the amazing Sherlock t-shirt and it has been down hill since - in a good way! There are shirts, sweaters, tank tops, and even tote bags! You can find quotes from Sherlock, Doctor Who, Star Wars, and Agent Carter. The fonts that are chosen for the shirts/tanks are amazing & beautiful. I love a good quote and if you are looking for one to wear, check out their shop. They are also having a very nice sale and I got more tanks!

She held a contest for new designs and I entered "Never tell me the odds" and it got made!! #STARWARSTRASH over here!!

2. Her Universe

I am in love with everything Her Universe has created. They have Doctor Who, Marvel, and Star Wars. I do have sizing issues when it comes to their made for Hot Topic collection which don't seem to match their normal sizing but I will figure out a way to make it work. I have so many of their Star Wars items; the Han Solo dress, BB-8 jacket, lightsaber skirt and I just finally tracked down the dress with the vintage bed sheet pattern. It's clothing I can wear on a daily basis. Some of it is in your face "HELLO THIS IS MY FANDOM" and some of it so subtle that I can wear it to work!

They teamed up with Kohl's to release work out clothing from Captain America: Civil War and I now have awesome clothes to run in! I will also be wearing it to the Super Heroes Marathon at Disneyland later this year!

3. ThinkGeek

ThinkGeek has always carried geeky items but they have started creating geeky pandora style charms!! I discovered these charms at Disneyland because they have a collection with Pandora but I wanted more than just Mickey, Minnie, and Elsa. (I'm so sick of Frozen) While googling, I found ThinkGeek had their own collection and I started buying charms. Now they are pretty expensive so I wait for when they have them on sale but I'm loving them. I have Star Wars, Marvel, Controller, some official Disney ones, but I am so excited to be able to build my own geeky bracelet. ThinkGeek has a lot more in terms of jewelry but I go to them for my charms.

4. Espionage Cosmetics

I'm not a big make up person but I love nail art!! Espionage Cosmetics has helped me fill that void with their geeky nail wraps. I love doing my own nail art but sometimes I need something quick and easy. I discovered them through their first kickstarter for Nailed It and I have been a big fan since. They also offer  everything shadows and lip serums all themed around different fandoms. I actually own their clear lip venom and mix some everything shadow to create my own colored lip gloss!

5. TeeFury

TeeFury sells shirts designed by fans! Most of them are sold for on day only but some of the popular ones head into the gallery but they cost more. I'm not sure how I found them but I'm glad I did. They use really great shirts both in woman and man cut, printed really well, and before the move they shipped out quick. Each day they have a new design for sale and it's always something for everybody!

So there you have it, my list of favorite places to get some cool geeky stuff! Now I'm off to see everyone's list and discover new places.

Have a great weekend!
