Welcome to Geek Fashion Fix, my weekly spotlight on cool nerdy clothes and accessories from around the web, the high street and more!
Black Candy Alternative Fashion is an online store that specialises in jewellery, wigs, corsets and other accessories. I first came across Black Candy at one of Sheffield’s Alternative-Burlesque Fairs, which are held every three months. As a fan of alternative fashion and burlesque shows, it was right up my alley! So, my friend Gina and I went, and the Black Candy store was one of the stand out stalls for me. There, I picked up my Arwen Evenstar necklace (You’ve probably noticed me wearing it in a few photos– it’s my go-to for formal wear/interviews!) and some super cute bat earrings, while Gina bought a gorgeous corset. The necklace is absolutely stunning, and in all the time I’ve had it, I’ve only had one problem- one of the gems came off the other day when I was taking my jumper off. Admittedly, it’s my fault, but it’s lasted a lot longer than I thought it would have. I have quite a few items from Black Candy (A Game of Thrones Stark necklace, a cute dragon locket, and a pair of kitty earrings) and I’d strongly recommend the shop. The seller herself is lovely and such a pleasure to deal with!
Black Candy has a pretty big selection of jewellery and wigs, and they ship all over the world. There’s a fair amount of alternative-style stuff, but also quite a lot of fandom necklaces, including a Hunger Games one and another LOTR necklace. Everything is a super-reasonable price, and shipping is extremely prompt, and comes well packaged. The Facebook page often has giveaways and teasers for new items, as well as some gorgeous photo shoots and is always active. If you’re looking to treat yourself to a reasonably priced, high-quality necklace or item of jewellery, I’d strongly recommend Black Candy items.
Here’s a selection of some of my favourite items:
Yeah, I have a bit of a thing for purple. Sue me.
