?Tara Reich is a fashion designer who is also a nerd. This works out pretty well, in my opinion, since she’s making genuinely classy outfits out of sci-fi themes, like the ’60s-ish Doctor Who/TARDIS dress above. Check out this profile of her over at China Shop Mag, where you can see designs for Dalek-inspired dresses, Cyberman dresses, UFO dresses, one I think might be Maria from Metropolis, and more — and then you can check out more of her work at her site here.

Oh, and guys, can you do me a favor? Let’s not get crass or mean here; there’s just no call for it. She’s a cool nerd chick who does cool nerd stuff, and that’s why I posted her on TR. I’ll be deleting comments that go, shall we say, off-topic. Much thanks to Geek Girl Diva for the tip.

About Author

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
