Merchandise related to the Star Wars prequels is rare nowadays, especially since there is a strong focus on the sequel trilogy and the standalone films. That's what makes this exclusive Jar Jar Binks T-shirt from BoxLunch a welcome sight. Even though he may not have the biggest fanbase, there are fans out there who’ll be more than happy to express their love of the prequels with this unique item.
Defender of the Universe
Voltron is one of my favorite shows on Netflix, and at New York Comic Con 2017, Han Cholo released an exclusive set of enamel pins featuring all five lions and Voltron itself. Enamel pins, whether they’re fan-made or officially licensed, are the perfect way to show off your geeky side.
The Crystal Fox
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is finally out in theaters, and while there is a strong legion of porg supporters, there are also fans of the crystal critter known as the vulptex. These adorable creatures act as a source of hope during times of darkness, so it’s no wonder this Crystal Fox T-shirt from TeeTurtle has captured the attention and hearts of fans everywhere.
Fastest Woman Alive
Enter the Speed Force with Hero Within’s Flash crop cardigan for women. This chic sweater is officially licensed by DC and designed in collaboration with Elhoffer Design. It’s the perfect gift for the geek who wants to avoid wearing the standard graphic tee and who’s looking to wear subtle clothing instead.
Queens of Winter
Speaking of Elhoffer Design, the geek chic fashion brand has several collections inspired by some of my favorite franchises, including Game of Thrones. I know we’re all craving for the final season, but in the meantime, make sure to check out the Queen of Fire wrap dress. It comes in black and burgundy and both look flattering on any figure.
Part of Your World
The Little Mermaid was one of my favorite movies growing up and it still sits near the top of my favorites list. If you ever want to flaunt your geek pride with out-of-this-world accessories, then Danielle Nicole’s collection of geek chic Disney bags is the way to go. The Ariel crossbody bag is perfect for carrying around your whosits and whatsits.
Best Jewelry Ever
While I adore Ariel, Rapunzel is my favorite Disney princess, so it pleased me greatly to find out that Couture Kingdom released a new Tangled inspired jewelry collection. My favorite piece is the silver charm bracelet that goes with just about anything. Instead of getting a generic piece of jewelry for the holidays, get one that has the magical Disney touch.
Nail wraps are another excellent way to express your geek pride. For a time, there weren’t many options for Star Wars fans, but Jamberry came to the rescue and released a variety of nail wraps, including some inspired by Star Wars: The Last Jedi. So if you’re looking for stocking stuffers, Jamberry’s nail wraps are one of the many ideas to consider this holiday season.
Harry Potter was one of those books that changed my life, so I naturally have a deep connection with the franchise. Finding Harry Potter inspired apparel that is both chic and sophisticated is tough, but Black Milk Clothing did something special with the Harry Potter license and created a beautiful Invisibility Cloak drape top that’ll make you feel all kinds of magical.
Stargate will always have a special place in my heart, and even though the franchise has been somewhat quiet over the past couple years, RockLove Jewelry has some of the most carefully crafted jewelry that every Stargate fan should own. The sterling spinner ring, for example, is a must-have item because it spins! And like General Hammond said in the 200th episode of Stargate SG-1, “spinning is so much cooler than not spinning.”
