16 Geeky Swimsuits

It’s summer! My favorite season has some pretty cool fashion. Geek swimwear! Embrace it guys, because my philosophy on bikinis is the same as my philosophy on cosplay. If you love it, wear it!

There is no wrong shape for a bathing suit. That’s ridiculous! The only thing that matters is that you’re comfortable, that you’re around people you love, and that you’re having fun. To prove it I’m posting (Gulp.) two unedited photos of me at the end of this article. I’ve got the ruler body type so I’m pretty much devoid of curves. There is no bathing suit that magically gives you a waist that isn’t there and I’ve given up looking for it.

Instead of worrying about something silly, let’s do something fun! Embrace summer and its bikinis with these adorable bathing suits!

il_570xN.601014997_6da6I love the athletic cut of this Deadpool inspired bikini. Be the merc with the mouth! Suit by SciFeyeCandy. They have tons of superhero styles on Etsy and can be found on Facebook here.

il_570xN.463824053_3ue6Assassin’s Creed inspired hooded bikini by Fit2btiedclothing. The hood is detachable! Visit their Facebook page for new style announcements, cosplays, and swimwear.

22f604b246e85d7803bb97a0adbbaa2aThis Little Mermaid inspired bikini is by Geek La Chic. It’s made to order and is built to fit and flatter curves. Sizing starts at size 8! Find them on Facebook for goodies and sales!

Cover_18Never miss a cosplay opportunity! This is Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder in the James Bond movie Dr. No. Guys, this bikini is an icon! While I can’t find an exact replica you can come close with a white tie front bikini like this one and a military canvas pistol belt in white. Rock your curves for less than $30! Ursala Andress sure did!

By the way, swap this look to black and you’re dangerously close to the Tomb Raider bikini Angelina Jolie wore as Lara Croft! (This cosplay writer just hooked you up this summer!)

image-swmwwwrsktbk-primary-shsnowatermarkWANT! Wonder Woman Underwire Skirt Bikini by Superhero Stuff. I love the bustier top and bombshell look. That underwire bikini top is so flattering. Small busts like mine look fantastic and curvy girls are secure and comfortable as well. One suit, all body types!

They keep introducing new suits and summer gear so like their Facebook page so you don’t miss one. The Batman designs are just as adorable. Grab some friends and wear a few!

1228748_10201009889902451_1419347747_oIt took a while, but I tracked down the original source of the shark cut out one piece! It’s by Bad Aby Designs and lookit how cute! Forget about tans lines and give this one shoulder design a shot! Want more? Find them on Facebook here!

il_570xN.597202090_k3lsWant everything to stay put? Then you’ll love this Batman pin up style swimsuit by The Geek Garden. Their Etsy store is cosplay heavy but it’s the bikinis and one pieces I adore. My favorites are Batman, the Riddler, Rogue, and Link. Find them on Facebook for sale codes, updates, and that purple galaxy plus size bikini that broke the internet!

image-swmsupgbndlcbk-primary-shsnowatermarkAdorable Supergirl Bandeau Lace-Up Bottom Bikini by Superhero Stuff. I love the braided halter strap! Need that link again? Find this superhero bikini on Facebook here!

il_570xN.583680247_tdztLUMPY Space Princess Shout Swimsuit by Modest Luxury. It’s printed on the front and back! These suits are super affordable so I was surprised by their current deal. Buy 2, get one free! So much geek!

il_570xN.505123186_sbcnLove a gothic or horror look? There’s no reason to give it up for the beach! Bring your sense of style with you with a suit by Bloodlust Productions. Each bikini is one of a kind and handcrafted out of silicone. You’ll turn heads, but not for the wrong reasons. A silicone bikini has an added bonus. Grip! This suit is not moving so dance, hoop, and swim without worrying about malfunction mortification. Win!

07a364561b51265b64ecf2b65fe389fa Mighty Morphin Pink Power Ranger bikini by Hot Topic. Go pink this summer! Sales run often so like their Facebook page to stay updated.

batman-logo-bandeau-string-bikini-swimsuit-6Batman logo bandeau bikini by Stylin Online. While they don’t have a ton of styles, this online store has some cute bathing suits. I like this uncluttered Batman design!

il_570xN.472847690_ig86Rock a TARDIS in this Doctor Who bikini! It’s…”Fantastic!” Again, this is by Fit2btiedclothing and you can find them on Facebook here.

And like I promised, this is me! I told you I was built like a stick and these unedited shots are just me enjoying summer. Sorry for the poor photo quality. I leave my Nikon at home when I’m on the water because I want IN!
Gillian JumpsJump! The only editing done to this photo was a crop to remove a family member. Here I am visiting my family for Father’s Day. Our tradition is barbeque, visiting, and a river swim and it’s amazing. See the pool noodle I’m gripping? There’s something pretty cool about sitting on a pool noodle like a chair, swinging your feet underwater, and talking to your father about everything that’s been going on since you last chatted. It’s a perfect day and I look forward to it every year.

unnamedMy last secret of the day! Did you guys know geeky me has another hobby? I’m nautical! Here I am on my boat when we spent a weekend anchored out off some islands in Florida. This was taken first thing in the morning on day 3 which explains that battle face. I rolled out of bed, grabbed a bikini, and was surveying the damage the wind did to some fellow boater’s tents when a buddy came outside and offered me breakfast. She handed me a Bushwacker. (Google it!) Also, there is that no waist thing again.

My point is this. Look at the amazing models in this article and look at me. There is no such thing as a perfect person so don’t let that stop you from having fun, and having a Bushwacker for breakfast. Get some sun, get sandy, get salty, and enjoy the skin you’re in!

  • I think part of my weakness for 1940s hair is how *neat and pretty* it is at the same time as it's *securely stowed.* Pin these styles well enough (and maybe even pomade them a little, I don't know), and you don't have to be terrified of wind. You can go on about your business without forever worrying about your hair. And that's. ~relieved sigh~ That's worth somethin'.

  • I hate victory rolls, beehives, and a lot of pin-up hair styles for this day and age, but some of these are JUST low-key enough to be used on occasion

  • If you don't have bobby pins, try it with two hair ties. Start by pulling the back half of your hair into a high ponytail using one tie. Then, pull the rest of your hair into a larger ponytail around the first. This will give you the height and pop you are looking for!
