While petticoats and ribbons might not be our personal style, we got a little excited when we stumbled across these Batman dresses and corsets at The Vintage Doctor, particularly given the general lack of comic book-oriented clothing for ladies outside of the occasional logo tee. There are also tons of other geek-oriented designs available, including Star Wars, Pac-Man, Invader Zim, Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Mario Bros, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Not to mention some Spider-Man, Superman and X-Men dresses available for order, although they don't have any pics of completed garments, so you'll have to use fabric samples and your imagination. The dresses are available with optional corset lacing in the back, and the corsets themselves are made with steel-tipped boning. And as I'm sure our lady readers know, stiff boning is incredibly important.
