Geek fashion can have many different faces. Getting a Geek Punk look can be easy or difficult depending on colors and fandoms. Since I wanted to feel stronger than usual, in a playful way, I went the punk way. Geek fashion helps to explain how you feel in the inside. Choosing your favorite fandoms helps to send a subliminal message of how you’re getting along with yourself. It also makes a self-esteem bust in the right direction. To go out and rock a punk style mixed with geek items can be somewhat tricky.
This weekend I decided to choose a great outfit. I’ve been on the punk side of fashion for a while now, and it feels great. But you don’t need to spend millions to get a great feel. So, here is my list of items with some links (I cannot remember all of them, sorry).
Blue leather jacket: from somewhere in Candem, London. I bought it last winter because it was great. It was a bargain! I don’t remember exactly how the whole thing went. I just remember that I loved it and bought it for future use. (If you haven’t noticed it yet, I like blue!)
Marvel Tee: this Avengers tee is from Primark. I bought it last year. I can’t remember when exactly, but it was super cheap. Plus, it has the golden Marvel letters that make it super cool. I love it! (If you have a Primark nearby, I recommend you to check it often because you can find great tees sometimes!)
Heart Choker: I bought this using Wish. You can certainly find it on Amazon and in shops. The prizes vary a lot depending on when you buy it. If you use Wish, it might take a month to get to your door. But, if you don’t mind waiting, then you can use Wish.
Lipstick & other Makeup: mostly everything is from ManicPanic. They have these strong and punk-ish colors that I love. You cannot see it on the pic, but I wear black nails too, which is my favorite color for them. I do have other two colors (pink and purple), but for some reason, I end up with black most of the time.
Banned Tartan Bag: the bag is from Banned, a brand that makes a lot of punk and goth clothing. It has a plain color, which is perfect if you want to add badges and pins as I did. Otherwise, you can choose the other colors. I saw red tartan and purple tartan online. It all depends on how you want to decorate it.
Badges: the biggest one is from Fable & Black. It has a “night court” design (ACOMAF). The other badges are Gwenpool, Slytherin, Thor, and LGBTQ+ related. Then there are some pins. Most of them come from Punky Pins, including a “cuterus.” You can see most of these merchandise on my Instagram account. I tend to share it there when I get them.
The rest: I think that the jeans are from Primark and the shoes from some other bargain I got time ago. Jewelry has been with me for ages, including a Star Trek silver ring. My earrings all come from Feral Strumpet. I’ve been buying earrings from her for years now. I can’t have enough of them!
And I think I don’t forget anything else. Probably the socks are also from Primark, but I’m not sure. As you can see, you can come up with a super badass outfit just digging here and there. You don’t need to spend tons of money (except for leather jackets, to be honest).
So, what do I do? If I buy online, I create lists on my favorite shops of the items I’d like to have. If it’s a shop nearby, I tend to go often to see if there are any deals or cute stuff that I might like. So, that’s it!
So, what does the outfit say about me? That I roar!!
