I'm constantly shocked by how many people don't know the basics of dressing for warmth in the outdoors. Even more people aren't equipped with the basics for sleeping warmly on a cold night. It's all simple and cheap, read this and make no more excuses.
Other than lasers and Elon Musk, magnets might be the most superhuman objects we have on this dear Earth of ours. They can make things fly, they can make things stick, they can demolish laptops, they can make you squeal and scream and feel like a kid. Another thing magnets can do? Make clothes. The two dresses above…
Somehow, I don't think I'll ever get tired of Tron-inspired outfits that really light up. Cosplayer Victoria Schmidt, also known as Scruffy Rebel, teamed up with fellow cosplayer Jinyo (who helped with the wiring and programing) to create this glowing gown. The Quorra hairdo is perfect, but this dress would still look…
This robotic spider dress made by Dutch designer Anouk Wipprecht and Austrian software developer Daniel Schatzmayr is creeping me out but also turning me on at the same exact time. I don't know what to think—if those crawling spindly robot legs are scary or if they're just sexy.
Put your little one in this knit Dalek jumper and make sure that her first word is "exterminate," and she'll be on the road to Doctor Who fandom or becoming a murderous cyborg. Either way, she'll look adorable during those formative early years.
Should the wearer of this dress suddenly find herself in Middle Earth, she'll at least have a map handy. This piece of Tolkien-inspire couture was spotted at Dragon*Con 2012, and we love all the small touches: the traveling cloak collar, the Tengwar script along the belt and hem, and the matching clutch.
First we saw an Iron Man dress with its own glowing Arc Reactor, now Kelsey Michele's gorgeous Captain America gown design has been spotted in the fabric. We grabbed this photo of a San Diego convention-goer who stitched up her own version of the red, white, and blue number. Maybe we'll eventually see the whole line…
The Friday schedule for Comic-Con is out — and it's jam-packed with so much awesome, we can't take it. There's Community, ParaNorman, Venture Bros., Dredd, the Firefly reunion, The Walking Dead, Game Of Thrones, Looper, and a first look at Neill Blomkamp's crazy new futuristic movie Elysium, starring Matt Damon.
What has Lady GaGa done to the world? It seems all anyone wants to wear is meat clothes or bubble dresses. Now there's this admittedly kind of flattering dress that dispenses milk and alcohol for playing truth or dare.
Sure, this girl certainly looks happy in her frilly dress made of recycled VHS tapes, but don't forget that a precious collection of movies may have been destroyed to create the garment.
Looking for the perfect accoutrement that can also charge your iPhone? Channel your inner Lady Gaga with this this portable, electricity-generating windmill. It won't work indoors, but looking like a cybernetic wood nymph is rad enough.
Being one of only two laydees on Gizmodo, I feel justified in saying this dress is hot. Though not as hot as we'll be if global warming gets its way, unless more people pay attention to eco-friendly inventions like this.
Created in collaboration with British fashion designer Gareth Pugh, this dress has been fitted with PolyPhotonix OLED lighting panels creating that very on-trend AW09/10 look. Or something.
24,000 full-color, super-thin LEDs, 4,000 Swarovski crystals, and enough iPod batteries to keep everything glowing for about an hour. This picture doesn't do the Galaxy Dress justice, but the video comes close.
