5 Fandom Friday: 5 Favorite Places to Buy Geeky Items

5 Fandom Friday

Today’s prompt is all about our favorite places to buy geek items. I love trying to incorporate geek clothing into my lifestyle and I have random action figures around my room. I love being a geek and expressing what I love on a daily basis. So here are my favorite places to buy geeky clothing and/or items.

Hot Topic

I love Hot Topic. I can find really comfy t-shirts that have cool designs. I bought my Daredevil t-shirt there last year after the Netflix show premiered and it’s my favorite. They sell different kinds of designers including Welovefine and HerUniverse which are both my favorites of mine. It allows me to find these items in a store versus ordering online which is very mixed for me. I also bought my Tardis dress from Hot Topic when I found out I was going to the console room.

River Quest Games

It’s so important to find a local store that you absolutely love. This store is what I love about being a geek. The owner is a good friend of mine and he’s the nicest person I have met in this area. He is constantly trying to create a safe environment for geeks and I appreciate that. There is a wide selection of board games which is what I’m there for. I actually just got a t-shirt from here after interviewing him for an article I’m writing. I love it. It’s great to support a local business

Her Universe

This is similar to Hot Topic since Hot Topic does sell Her Universe. I love Ashley’s devotion to inspiring young girls to like whatever they want. I was once nominated for her Fangirl of the Day and I was so proud. Plus they are planning some activewear sometime soon and I couldn’t be more excited. Death Star workout pants would be so comfy.

Barnes & Noble

Barnes & Noble has become much more geek trendy lately. In the summer they usually have weekly themes that highlight fandoms. They did a week on comics, manga, and Wizard of Oz. I actually just ordered some comic books a couple days ago from here and I can’t wait to post the haul online. I always have to restrict my shopping when I go here, but it’s so worth it.

Design By Humans

I discovered this site by accident, but I love it. It’s a really cool t-shirt and tank top design but designed by artists. So you end up buying support from an artist instead of a site. I think this idea is super cool. I actually found this by reading a fashion blog called Geek Pinata. She advertised the batman and superman shirts she found. I checked out the site and found this cool Bioshock tank top. I had to really resist not purchasing it, but the artwork is really intriguing. I’m not artistic whatsoever, but I love supporting someone else’s talent.

Have a Happy Easter weekend! 🙂

  1. YES HOT TOPIC! I wrote in my post that you’re lying if you don’t shop here because most nerds I know have shopped at that store at least once. It was the first place I ever found anything nerdy. Her Universe is also great. I find myself drooling over there stuff all the time.


  2. I think you told me on my fashion blog that we have the same TARDIS dress. Lolz! 😉 I LOVE Hot Topic and am an affiliate with them and also with Her Universe as well, because I love them too. ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ I also love WeLoveFine. ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ And B&N was always my place for manga. ❤ ❤ ❤


  3. Designed by Humans is awesome! I’m a big fan of their tees. Have you checked out TeeFury? Similar stores, both are pretty fantastic! And I love how geeky Barnes & Noble has become!


  4. I’ve been meaning to give Hot Topic a try, but the international shipping to the UK always puts me off. I should just binge it and place an uber order so that at least it’ll only hit me once for shipping. At least then I’d have some pretty geek swag from across the pond. 🙂
