Ah, Spring time! The blooming flowers, the cleansing rain, the outdoor concerts…..the Comic Conventions? For the curvaceous fangirl this time of the year means comic conventions and meet-ups. I’m constantly blown away by all the creativity in this small community. The work that is put into making costumes and clothing for social gatherings such as this takes dedication and time.
Unfortunately, the only thing I’ve ever sewn was in arts and crafts, using yellow yarn with some felt-shaped star. For those who are not creative seamstresses or do not have the time, I’ve taken the liberty of narrowing it down to the top 11 geekalicious fangirl items for the curvy girl.
Get your life!!!
11 Fashion Finds For Nerdy & Curvy Fangirls
Star Trek TOS Two-Piece Swimsuit, at Torrid.com
Here's an important question for Star Trek: The Original Series fans: if you beam down onto a beach, are you part of a Sanding Party? *rimshot*

This beautiful asymmetrical dress will make others green with envy. Inspired by Poison Ivy, the dress is adorned with a scalloped lace skirt, ivory embroidered straps and neckline. This is an online exclusive item, but may be shipped to your nearest Torrid store. I find this piece to be very versatile, as it can be worn to conventions or any formal gathering.

KMK Designs Gothic Lolita Lace Choker Necklace, at Etsy.com
This beautiful lace choker is handmade by designers Kaitlyn and Sheridyn McClain, a mother and daughter team from St. Paul, Minnesota. Along with their talented team of makers and in-house sewers, they create fanciful designs catered to the Steampunk, Goth and Victorian nerds alike. I love all of their designs, but this is one of my favorites because the choker can also be converted into a headband. The Satin bow underneath is a deep wine, while the Venise lace and the bow itself are black. They even include free shipping if you enter the code FREESHIPKMK. Edwardian ball, here I come!
