For anyone who loves creating cosplay or fashion for geeks, Her Universe has just announced the contest for you. They are going to be creating the first ever Geek Couture fashion show at this year's San Diego Comic Con, and they are seeking to support geek talent from across the world. If you are the sort of person who looks at Chewbacca and thinks about creating a full length fur gown complete with bandolier, you are definitely their type of people.
Any designer over the age of 18 can submit designs to the contest between now and April 4th. Winners will be selected April 18th after which their designs will be walking in the show. Two prizes will be awarded: one prize to be chosen by a panel of judges which will feature experts from the world of fashion and the second prize to be chosen by the show audience.
The Her Universe Fashion Show itself will be a first-come first-serve free event at SDCC hosted by Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein and sponsored by Nerdist Industries. "Fangirls are already using the halls of San Diego Comic-Con International as their runway to showcase custom fashions. We wanted to give these designers a bigger stage to share their talent and also provide an educational experience in the fashion industry," said Eckstein. If this sounds like you, then head on over to the contest page and sign up. We could be buying your clothes from Hot Topic next year!
