Happy Luke Cage Day! As much as we wish we could be sitting at home right now marathoning the Season 1 of what will undoubtedly will be another awesome Marvel show, we’re stuck doing that work thing. Our method of coping is through a Luke Cage inspired look. Obviously.
What’s that? Star Wars: Dark Disciple starring Asajj Ventress comes out tomorrow? Seems like a perfect time to take some style inspo from everyone’s favorite sharp tongued Sith.
We can’t all be one of the seven fierce Sand Snakes, the bastard daughters of Oberyn Martell, but we can certainly all accessorize like one! Gold is the metal of choice in Dorne. The Sand Snakes are fiercely proud both of being their father’s daughters and of their collective name so snake motifs and snake skin fabrics and textures are the name of the game here.
Gold Medusa Pendant + Gold Ice Snake Necklace + Cobra Triad Strand + Onxy Wana Bib

Stock up your Batcave with some Batgear around the web! (Everything sounds cooler than you add Bat to the front of it, am I right?)
Leggings are fun way to spice up an outfit especially with all the retailers out there diving excitedly into this trend to offer shoppers tons of options. Romwe offers both the traditional Bat Symbol leggings along with a pair that feature the covers of various Batman comics over the years. Hot Topic also has a pair of leggings coming out on June 10th featuring the Dark Knight himself.
You can never go wrong with a t-shirt especially when it’s got the bat symbol on it. Again, Hot Topic has you covered with this grey striped tank and a gold foil t-shirt while Forever 21 has a distressed muscle tank.
If you’re more inclined towards something long-sleeve, ASOS has a long-sleeved crop shirt by River Island with a fun print. Top Shop has white sweatshirt with a Bat symbol pattern. To round things out, Forever 21 has a Heather Grey Raglan top, again with the Bat symbol.
Not feeling like wearing your Batlove on your body? You can always opt for a Batman (or a Wonder Woman) wallet from ThinkGeek!
Of course, if Batman’s not your thing, you can always pick up one of our Great At Boats shirts.
In shocking news, Iron Man 3 came out on Friday. If you’re like us, you saw it already and now you have Iron Man on the brain. For our brains, that often translates to Iron Man looks on the body. (What’d you expect from a geek fashion blog?) We’re going to look at this from two ways: the more obvious and the more subtle.
If you want to wear your loyalty to Iron Man on your sleeve or rather your body. If so, Etsy and ThinkGeek have you covered!
On the other hand, maybe you want to keep your geek more on the downlow but still want to give yourself that Tony Stark mental vibe. Colours are the easiest thing to adhere to for an Iron Man look but so is a look that’s either sleek and chic or that has a bit of a harder edge to it. (Tony Stark is a man with many sides.)
