So here’s the thing: I have a KOTOR problem by which I mean that I have been desperately in love with the Knights of the Old Republic games since I first played them back in 2014 and I still love the hell out of them. In particular, I fell for Revan who I firmly believe is definitely a woman of color and not the bland, dark haired dude that seems to be the default for so many games.
POINT IS I love Revan and when I saw some of the looks from the Valentino Spring 2016 collection, they definitely made me think of her and what she might wear from the high-fashion fancy looks on our world. Without further ado… the dresses!
I know, you’re shocked: it’s Bria doing a Black Widow outfit and not Lin but it had to happen eventually! But hey: when you get a cute new cardigan and you wear it as a part of your work outfit on a day when it’s really nice, taking pictures for a geek fashion blog seems mandatory.
Bonus: I was reading Black Widow: Red Vengeance on the metro on the day I wore this to work and it was COMPLETELY BY ACCIDENT

We don’t usually cover men’s fashion here but for these ThinkGeek jackets, we had to make an exception! Check out their brand new Hero Within collection. While there is also an okay Flash sweatshirt and a decent enough Green Lantern jacket, the real standouts are the Batman pieces. All three jackets (a blazer and two peacoats) have the bat logo cleverly hidden on the back via the seam lines as you can see below:
The inside lining is yellow with a far less Batman logo but as far as the outside is concerned, this is a perfect subtly nerdy piece! While we haven’t gotten our hands on any of these and can’t say for certain, the higher price point is a promising sign regarding the quality and it would definitely be worth ordering to see for sure if you’re interested.
You can see all three of the Batman offerings below and shop the entire Hero Within collection over at ThinkGeek.com!
If this skirt looks somewhat familiar… that’s because it totally is! Her Universe recently partnered with ModCloth to offer their Lightsaber skirt, Bespin Dress, and Hoth Dress in a revamped style. They’re now available as slightly shorter skirts in (if my Hoth skirt is any indication) in a more lightweight fabric. They hit a little above the knee instead of below. We’ll talk more about the skirts via a WAYW post at some point but for now… lightsaber skirt outfit!
Yep. I’m First Order trash forever now. But heyyyy as long as I can keep rocking this sort of style, I’m cool with it. (And yes, that is my jacket from when we did our punk trash First Order fashion.)
