With all of the Star Wars hype surrounding every corner of the nerd world recently, ChubbyBunny Michelle and Yume Ninja teamed up with Mandie of Geeky Glamorous to create this fashion editorial shoot featuring original design created by Catherine Elhoffer of Elhoffer Designs.

Finally, the 80s mashup we didn’t know we were waiting for!
ChubbyBunny Michelle and Yume Ninja organized this group of rock star mutants for an X-Men and Jem mashup photoshoot! The same team that was behind the Sailor Moon Biker Gang Cosplay and the Gotham Playboy Bunnies group has brought together yet another group of totally outrageous cosplayers for “Jazz and the Hardlight Projections,” inspired by the art of Rage Gear Studios, and photographed again by Greg De Stefano.

We Love Fine unveiled it’s new Adventure Time Collection today by telling the story of how Princess Bubblegum invites the royalty of OO to her birthday party. Alas! Peppermint Butler has made off with the birthday pie!
Springing to life from the quirky fashion geek-torial, are the stars of this new collection, the fun and fantastic sweaters and knits.
Being giant fans of ‘Adventure Time’ we were more than honored to be asked to represent Princess Bubblegum and Marceline. We’re excited to bring you some exclusive behind the scenes footage from the entire shoot:
Labyrinth of Jareth brings the fantasy realm of the movie of the same name to guests every year, by providing a lavish setting to dress up in your whimsical best in a beautiful venue, with performances, merchants, dancing, music, and more available to create a night to remember. We are so grateful to Sypher Arts Studio, who puts on this annual event, and giving all of us nerds a chance to dress up and have the chance to experience such an amazing event!
This year, Labyrinth made a last minute venue change to the historic Millennium Biltmore hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The hotel is an architectural treat in itself, having been erected in the 1920s in a mix of Spanish-Italian Renaissance Revival, Mediterranean Revival, and Beaux Arts styles. The hotel also played host to the origins of the Academy awards, hosting the Oscars in its early years.
With this historic change in venue, Labyrinth was an even greater treat than usual for patrons this year, as guests could explore 3 floors of rooms providing different musical, dance, and other various stage entertainment. On the main stage in particular, dancers and musicians spun a fantasy tale told through a sequence of performances all night, culminating in an epic all-cast finale that even included Sparkles, the dragon!
We are so grateful to be fantasy nerds in a town like Los Angeles, where other like-minded artists can come together and experience such a magical night every year.
Below are some of our photos from the night, but they barely scratch the surface of this amazing masquerade ball. We can’t wait for next year!
Moshi Moshi Nippon Festival arrived in Los Angeles this summer for a weekend of Japanese pop culture. The event hosted popular Japanese street fashion models, including twins, AMIAYA as well as Ayumi Seto, Yuri, Rin Rin Doll, and Hiko Achiha. Both Japanese and local brands set up shop to sell clothes and accessories to fans. Plenty of Japanese food and candy were also available! Fans also got to enjoy panels, karaoke and a fashion show. Check out our video and photos below!
Redbubble.com has been making the rounds on my social media lately and I was thrilled when they offered to send me one of their products to review for Defective Geeks! Ladies and gents — this is the amazing Space Cat pouch.
First off, Redbubble carries plenty of different products and on their website, they rightfully proclaim that they are “simply the finest and most diverse creative community and marketplace on the interlink.”
Spider-Gwen fans, your prayers have been answered!
WeLoveFine debuts today with their new line of Spider-Gwen inspired apparel, ranging from hoodies, tanks, and leggings! Hallelujah, lady nerds!
For those not in the know, Spider-Gwen is one of the most innovative characters to come out of the Spider-Verse arc, coming from an alternate reality where Gwen Stacy is the one who gets bitten by the radioactive spider instead of Peter Parker. Jason Latour & Robbi Rodriguez created her iconic costume, which is just one of the many reasons fans have fallen in love with Spider-Gwen.
I (ChubbyBunny Michelle!) was so pleased to be able to be one of the Spider-Gwens for this shoot, and had a blast jumping all over town to create that web slinger feel for the pics!
So hold on to your spider-pants, ladies, here comes some fashion suitable for any aspiring superhero!
