Home Geekonomics is a series that features the best in geeky home decor, food and DIY. Each week will focus on a specific fandom and highlight the best of geek for your home and everyday life.
Avengers: Age of Ultron finally hits theaters this week and whether you plan on seeing it once or multiple times, there’s no better way to get into the spirit than by dressing up. Perhaps you’re not ready for a full hand-made cosplay ensemble, but you want to show your allegiance with more than an off-the-shelf tee.
No problem, these everyday cosplay pieces show off your fandom and yet remain unique in every way. Fandom-bounding (dressing up as your favorite character in more casual, contemporary fashion) is a great way to support Team Avengers but more importantly, allows you to remain comfortable.
Avengers Scarf by The Burly Knitter
This fuzzy sweater assembles Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Iron Man, Captain America and the Hulk, all represented in this 6-foot scarf. Ideal if you live in the colder part of the country. Of course here in Los Angeles, we’d just wear it with a tank top.
Avengers Shoes by Tom Hiddlestunned
These cool Avengers shoes aren’t even a reality, they’re just photoshop mock-ups. It’s some sort of Asagardian trick, by tumblr user Tom Hiddlestunned. In any case, they’re simple enough to DIY on your own with some acrylic paint and a few stencils.
DIY Superhero Tee by IAmMomma
Be unique when showing off your fandom by stenciling your very own superhero tee. Subtle silhouettes are easy to pull off with freezer paper and fabric paint using this simple step-by-step DIY.
Scarlet Witch Hoodie by Regal Tees
This Scarlet Witch hoodie is an homage to one of the newest members of the Avengers team. Pair it with Quicksilver earrings and you’ve got the twins represented from head to toe.
Avengers Glasses by PoppinCustom
Custom hand-painted glasses are gorgeous with just the right mix of chibi characters and bright colors. A fun, flashy way to show off your fandom AND see the movie clearly.
