Fictional fashion for your Friday enjoyment

Happy Friday! Today's post isn't heavy on the deals, so please forgive me. But, it does have fashion, of a sort.

I stumbled across the website for Black Milk, a clothing company based in Australia, a few months ago and haven't been able to forget about it.

In particular, I can't get the Hogwarts line out of my head. Yes, most of the items are made of lycra and a bit on the skimpy side, but it's Harry Potter, people!

I'm swooning over the Daily Prophet leggings and First-Year swimsuit. I'm also trying to rationalize spending more than $80 on each and sporting that much stretch material.

My current inner-monologue is going something like this: I would totally be able to wear those leggings under a cute tunic! And that swimsuit with Harry Potter's head smack dab in the middle of the torso, so practical for swimming laps!

Obviously, these clothes, which are oozing with what I'll call nerdish sex appeal, are aimed at adult fans of the works of fiction. In fact, the whole company seems to be built on nerd fandom, featuring lines based on Star Wars and Lord of the Rings.

Plus, the company recently debuted its Halloween line, which is a bit scary looking. But, pretty cool if you're into that sort of thing. It seems that plenty of people are, by the looks of how many of the items are sold out.

What do you guys think? Is this fictional fashion something you could work into your daily wardrobe or should we just move on?
