Welcome back to another month’s-worth of geek fashion picks. Below are some of the coolest ways to wear your fandom that arrived in stores and online in April. And be sure to scroll all the way through so you don’t miss the latest in geek fashion news and a spotlight on some fashion creations by fans.

The Picks

MARVEL / CAPTAIN MARVEL / AVENGERS: ENDGAME

Originally a Wonder Con exclusive, you can now find the Captain Marvel Exclusive Fashion Tee ($24.99) on Hero Within’s website.

For the latest movie release Hero Within has also added Endgame vintage-style t-shirts – sales of which will benefit foster teen preventative programs or assist those at risk for homelessness thanks to a partnership with Framewerk Imaging. Each shirt features a Marvel M with a character symbol inside and retails for $24.99. There are 4 designs right now but Hero Within says more are on the way. My favorite of the first set is the Thor: Avengers Endgame Vintage Tee.

Avengers Endgame Quantum Hat

Her Universe released their Sisters of the Force collection at the show as well as online. The Episode VIII Rose Tico Jacket ($74.90) (plus sizing ($84.90) looks comfy. It’s cool to see a Rebels Sabine Wren Moto Jacket ($89.90) (plus sizing $99.90). And the Rebels Hera Syndulla Sweatshirt ($49.90) from their Our Universe label has a cool design.

Torrid continues to have cool designs. I love the print on the Her Universe Star Wars Galaxy Blue Strappy Sports Bra ($46.90) and Her Universe Star Wars Galaxy Blue Crop Legging ($60.90) as well as the one on the Her Universe Star Wars Galaxy Black Jumpsuit ($74.90).

In adorable news, there’s a R2-D2 Hooded Romper Tank for Baby and Toddler by Rags ($46.95) and this Star Wars Field Jacket for Kids ($39.95) that has the Max Rebo Band on the back over at Shop Disney.

Highlights include: Her Universe Disney Jasmine Purple Maxi Dress ($88.90), Her Universe Jasmine Peacock Green Dress ($88.90), Her Universe Jafar Fringe Kimono ($58.90), and Her Universe Genie Print Kimono ($58.90). Rounding out this month’s Aladdin picks is this golden Aladdin Drawstring Bag ($34.95) found at Shop Disney.

I feel like I’d have to see it in person to make the call as to whether it’s for me but it’s cool that Shop Disney has an Epcot Dress ($128). Yay for Spaceship Earth.
