Today’s prompt is all about our favorite places to buy geek items. I love trying to incorporate geek clothing into my lifestyle and I have random action figures around my room. I love being a geek and expressing what I love on a daily basis. So here are my favorite places to buy geeky clothing and/or items.
I love Hot Topic. I can find really comfy t-shirts that have cool designs. I bought my Daredevil t-shirt there last year after the Netflix show premiered and it’s my favorite. They sell different kinds of designers including Welovefine and HerUniverse which are both favorites of mine. It allows me to find these items in a store versus ordering online which is very mixed for me. I also bought my Tardis dress from Hot Topic when I found out I was going to console room. This store is really great.
River Quest Games
It’s so important to find a local store that you absolutely love. This store is what I love about being a geek. The owner is a good friend of mine and he’s the nicest person I have met in this area. He is constantly trying to create a safe environment for geeks and I appreciate that. There is a wide selection of board games which is what I’m there for. I actually just got a t-shirt from here after interviewing him for an article I’m writing. I love it. It’s great to support a local business
This is similar to Hot Topic since Hot Topic does sell their collection. I love Ashley’s devotion to inspiring young girls to like whatever they want. I was once nominated for her Fangirl of the Day and I was so proud. Plus they are planning some active wear sometime soon and I couldn’t be more excited. Death Star workout pants would be so comfy.
Barnes & Noble
Barnes & Noble has becoming much more geek trendy lately. In the summer they usually have weekly themes that highlight fandoms. They did a week on comics, manga and Wizard of Oz. I actually just ordered some comic books a couple days ago from here and I can’t wait to post the haul online. I always have to restrict my shopping when I go here, but it’s so worth it.
Design By Humans
I discovered this site on accident, but I love it. It’s really cool t-shirt and tank top designs but designed by artists. So you end up buying support an artist instead of a site. I think this idea is super cool. I actually found this by reading a fashion blog called Geek Pinata. She advertised about the batman and superman shirts she found. I checked out the site and found this cool Bioshock tank top. I had to really resist to not purchase it, but the artwork is really intriguing. I’m not artistic whatsoever, but I love supporting someone else’s talent.
Have a Happy Easter weekend! 🙂
