5 Fandom Friday // Favorite Stores To Get Geeky Wears

If this 5 Fandom Friday prompt wasn't actually made for me I'd be shocked. Shopping and fandoms are a match made in heaven. It's fair to say that I spend a good amount of time (and money) buying nerd-related merch online. I pride myself however, on unique or slightly more subtle nods to nerd. Below are just five of my favorite stores to get geeky wears.

1. Jordandené
The queen of subtle fandom, Jordanden√© shirts are gorgeous, comfy, and often quite cheeky. I've started to assemble quite the collection of Jordanden√© tanks and I adore wearing them. Keep an eye out for an upcoming post featuring one! They are so easy to layer & mix-and-match while giving just the slightest shoutout to the tag-lines of your fav heroes...or in some cases, anti-heroes.

2. Whosits and Whatsits
While Whosits and Whatsits makes many adorable Disney related apparel items, my favorites from them are their hats! From beanies to snapbacks, Whosits has gots you covered. I recently caved and bought the Zootopia Police Officer hat and I don't regret it one bit. I'm going to protect the herd by telling you to go shop. Don't be a dumb bunny!

3. Cakeworthy
I have two words for you: Cakeworthy Flannels. If you have never seen a Cakeworthy flannel, you should probably go look now. Okay, are you back? Do you want like, ten? Understandable. These babies hardly ever last more than a day before they sell out. I'm lucky to have been able to grab two: the Hitchhiking Ghost and Wizard's. They are so soft but sturdy and absolutely worth every penny.

4. Hot Topic
I know, I know...Hot Topic, really? Hear me out for a minute. I have found some real diamonds in the rough perusing Hot Topic online (much more comfortable than trying the survive in store, believe me). Among my favorite finds at Hot Topic are their socks. Seriously, their knee-highs are some of the comfiest I've ever tried. These Fair Isle Deathly Hallows socks are my favorites. The one who possesses them is the Master of Warmth.

5. Etsy
Obviously Etsy is a great place to go for slightly more obscure items. I could easily spend hours clicking around various shops and appreciating the craftiness of others. Some of my favorite Etsy sellers are: Femme De Bloom, who creates wonderful vintage inspired brooches and collar-clips. Gabby Zapata, a visual artist for Disney who sells prints of original pieces, and Modern Mouse Boutique my preferred out-of-park Mouse Ear maker!

  1. Hot Topic is on my list too. They really do have some great stuff if you really search.

    I've never heard of Cakeworthy before but taking a peak, it looks awesome. I would love to get my hands on the Pull the Lever flannel.
