It's no secret that mainstream fashion has welcomed retro scifi with open arms. So why doesn't that love get reciprocated, so we can get some style going in the biggest genre blockbusters?
Recently, sci-fi has come under fire in certain circles for its lack of innovation in costume design. But meanwhile, the fashion world is eating up scifi frills. Just the other night at the BET awards, I was struck by the sheer amount of crazy buckles and unnecessary straps of sparkle, metal and nylon gracing the red carpet. We've noted before that retro robots seem to be dominating the catwalks nowadays.
