Ooh! 11 Fashion Finds For Nerdy & Curvy Fangirls!

Curvy AND Nerdy? Looking for some inspiration and a few places to score your plus size cosplay gear? Hit the con circuit this season with these fun & fashionable plus size finds!

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

We hope that this quick guide proves that even in a plus size, you can surely represent your respective fandoms with pride and a whole lot of style. How about that R2D2 Apron? Adorbs, no? And that T.A.R.D.I.S. sweater has been swiftly added to my wish list!!!

Did our nerdy necessities for curvy geeks make you excited? Or did you say “EXTERMINATE!“?

Do you have any go-to favorites as a fangirl? Which one of these finds would you wear? Let’s geekily gab about it in the comments, shall we?

    I always find these articles so disappointing. There’s nothing special in that list of 10.

      Thank you for your feedback, sorry I couldn’t make it special for you. Though I agree, what are you looking for? I found that while some are already accessible in commercial stores, those in the Etsy shops are not. They are hand made by people who are as passionate as their audience; I feel that in itself is special. The choker, for example, is by a team that actively participates in conventions like the TeslaCon – they live what they sell. They offer more than just that necklace, but this is something I would buy myself; as it’s in my price range and something I’d wear on the daily. Let me know what you would like to see. What makes Fangirl clothing and accessories special to you?

    I live in Torrid and Hot Topic Plus… they have the best clothes. Good pricing and great quality. My closet is nothing but awesome nerdy dresses from these two places.

      OOh I’d love to that!!!

    I love the idea of this list, but I know from experience and a friend who works at Hot Topic… The DC formal wear line and most of the Her Universe lines were poorly made and fell apart quickly. Especially the Poison Ivy dress, which had the problem of fraying open at the seams because the serging on the seams was done poorly for the type of fabric that was used.
    I do a lot of shopping at HT, but I can admit that I end up reserging 90% of the clothing items I buy.

    Personally, I find that the clothes from Think Geek tend to be more well made and are comparable, and often cheaper, in price.

      Hi Thistle! I LOOOVE your name, btw.

      This is just a preview of things that I found. I am actually going more in depth with my finds and will hopefully be able to get some items and do unboxing and try ons and will give my feedback on them.

      I believe the Ivy dress is from Torrid, which has been a go-to of mine as the quality has been really great throughout the years. I have some pretty old dresses and they’ve held up for quite some time.

      I’m a thrifty but quality driven girl. I will pay for the price if it’s something I REALLY want (which in turn is most things, haha). However, I do reach out to the customer service if I find there may be something wrong with the product – and for the most part, I’ve always gotten a great response and they appreciate my feedback. This helps all businesses and manufacturers!

      I love Think Geek, too! I’m all for that twinkly skirt – you best believe I’m saving up for that lol.

      Do you have any other stores that you shop at that I could take a look into? 🙂

      Thanks for your feedback! STAY TUNED – There’s more coming from me 😀

      Hi Thistle! I love your name BTW <3

      Thank you so much for your feedback! I have been a ThinkGeek Girl since their launch. Though the plus size is a new addition, it's growing rapidly – I love their shirts and am excited to wear them for the science marches in my area! That twinkly shirt tho – You best believe I'll be saving for that!

      As I've not purchased some of these items; I am curious and would love to try these on and see for myself how the quality is. Though it certainly isn't something you'd find on a regular in any store. I'll keep everyone posted when I try these babies on.

      Do you have any places that you go to when it comes to fangirl stuff? Aside from HT, TG and Torrid? I'd LOVE to know more.

      The sequined Wonder Woman dress is actually remarkably well made. I went to school for design and have ten+ years of alterations experience and I wa very pleasantly surprised.

        Ah thanks for letting me know! Does this mean you have it?! Would LOVE pics, Shawn!

      hehe I’m getting this response a lot. What did you think you’d see? What excites you when you think of Fangirl stuff? I would LOVE to give you more of what you want 🙂 I also want you to give me more of what I want (shopaholics anonymous here I come)

    I love the sequined Wonder Woman dress, I was wearing it last weekend. Be advised though, those sequins are SHARP. The insides of my arms where they were resting against the bodice were raw after the first couple of hours. I’m going to try opera gloves to protect them next time.

    The Victoria Beckham for Target black dress with long sleeves and white collar/cuffs makes a perfect dress for a Wednesday Addams costume.
