Marrying the two things I enjoy the most, fashion and geek, is always something I’m on the hunt for. I prefer subtle geek homages in the clothes I wear over the more obvious references to them in a graphic T-shirt or bag. Most of these clothes are a little hard to come by, but places like BioWare has started creating their own line of clothes for the geek who want functional styles that can be worn almost any where, instead of outside of work or at conventions. When I stumbled upon the online store Musterbrand, it’s the answer I’ve been looking for to satiate my subtle geek fashion craving.
I don’t proclaim myself to be a fashion expert, but I have an appreciation for well put together styles, color combinations, and tasteful accessorizing. Everyone’s personal style will be different and we all have our own idea of what fashion means to us. It’s a form of creative expression and the first impression we get when we meet someone. I have mentioned it many times before that while I’m a geek at heart, my fashion choices don’t outwardly show my geeky enthusiasm. I may admire a Lara Croft T-shirt worn by a friend, but I won’t wear one myself. I may think a piece of geeky jewelry looks cool, but still not feel compelled to wear them with my clothes. My style is simple, classic, and extremely feminine with dashes of floral prints paired with comfy leather boots. When Bioware hosted a fashion show at this year’s PAX Prime in Seattle to reveal a new line of geek clothes, I fell in love at first sight.
