I’ve been listening to Galactic Fashion, the monthly podcast dedicated to Star Wars and geek fashion, since Johnamarie Macias started it in August of 2015. Not only is it a topic I have a lot of interest in, but the show is also structured really well and a fun listen.
Within each episode you can hear about the latest releases in geek fashion and what hosts Johna and Teresa think about some of their recent purchases. You may even learn some fashion terminology.
And each episode features an interview with people who like to merge their fandoms with their apparel and accessories. If Lucasfilm licensees in these categories don’t already listen to Galactic Fashion, they should consider it. All these interviews together aren’t that far off from a geek fashion focus group.
I had the honor of being interviewed for Episode 16, which is out today. It was fun to get to talk to these two ladies about how we connect to Star Wars, fashion influences, and the idea of bringing your fandom into your everyday outfits –– aka Everyday Cosplay. As mentioned in the episode, my new #geekfashion Instagram is @geekfashiongalaxy. I’ll be writing more here about some of the topics I brought up on the podcast so listen in to get a head-start.
If you’re looking for the Everyday Cosplay looks I put together for The Force Awakens that we referred to, you’ll find them here.
And I’m not kidding, licensees – I’m a life-long Star Wars fan with a background in marketing and a hobby of fashion and costume-making. Reviewing products? Feedback? A consult? Let’s talk.
