My Entry into the Fabric 8 Geek Chic Contest.
Fabric repeat at 8 by 8 inches.
I find "Geek Chic" to be a difficult category to pin down. A lot of people seem to think of it as more "Nerd Chic", or perhaps some mix of sixties fashion and The Big Bang Theory. To me, a geek is just a person who has a great interest in something. That thing might be quite mainstream, or very esoteric. I ended up thinking about Anime and Manga Otaku, people who are interested in Japanese culture. Japanese dolls, cherry blossoms, and yukata are all ubiquitous symbols from Japanese culture. The glasses on the dolls are a tongue-and-cheek poke at the entire category of geek chic, with its nerdy overtones.
