Looking for something fun to do after a long day of battling lines and buying merch?

Check out the Her Universe Fashion show!

  • Thursday, July 24th, at 6pm at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel Harbor Ballroom – a minute’s walk from the convention center.

“Geek Couture” is about to descend upon the world’s largest pop culture convention in what many are calling “The must see” event at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. In a unique partnership two years in the making, three companies who are at the forefront of fandom and fashion have joined forces to present The Her Universe Fashion Show, the brainchild of Ashley Eckstein and Her Universe.

This unique fashion show brings together 36 designers, professional and amateur, male and female – who come from all over the country and have been preparing for months to premiere their original and strikingly geeky female fashion designs. The designers will compete for two grand prizes – an opportunity for both winners to co-design a Her Universe fashion collection for Hot Topic. A panel of celebrity judges will choose one winner while the audience will choose the other. The designs can embrace anything that is celebrated at Comic-Con – from sci-fi films and TV to comics, gaming, fantasy and more.

Fans who attend the Fashion Show will also be treated to the Hot Topic after party, which kicks off with a special performance by pop punk band All Time Low. This event promises to be one of the most buzzed about parties of San Diego Comic-Con 2014.

The coolest and imo the best part is that our very own fashion editor Laura is one of the incredibly talented designers showing their stuff!


Joss Whedon isn’t one to shy away from voicing his opinion, and ever since Avengers: Age of Ultron came out he’s been very clear about why he’s no longer working with Marvel and what he wishes he’d done differently. But is that fair? And is he right to complain?

Join Jessica Chobot as she explores the Joss Whedon cut of Ultron, whether his post-Marvel politics are fair, and why fandom drove one of their favorite directors off of Twitter – all on today’s Nerdist News!

Hey I don’t know if anyone else knows about this, but if you search Game Grumps on iTunes you’ll find the top result is an hour long podcast from December where these two cool people from Nerdist Industries talk with Dan and Arin about a ton of stuff and it’s really neat and free to listen to and download so if you guys ever want to hear a fun, relatively unknown interview with the Grumps just go on iTunes and search Game Grumps!
