Radioactive Nerd

Radioactive Nerd was founded in 2012 as a way for Jackie to marry her passion for fandom, and fashion with a coping mechanism for her PTSD. Since then, it has blossomed into an amazing artisan design company, helping to ensure that nerdy femes can wear their passions with them everywhere they go.

Radioactive Nerd offers outfits and accessories for any occasion, from black tie events, to the yoga studio, and even traversing the cosmos in a Police Callbox. All our designs are manufactured in Canada to ensure good looking outfits with ethics stitched into every seam.

The design team has grown over the past few years. Jackie is the head designer, primary seamstress, and owner of Radioactive Nerd, bringing you cocktail dresses, skirts, sweaters, and everything in between. Her favourite fandom, if she had to choose, is a close toss-up between Harry Potter, and Mass Effect.

Claire has been helping Jackie since day one, but started designing fabrics in 2014 for Sailor Moon. She has since released a series of leggings perfect for femes of all sizes, and fandoms. Her favorite fandom is Sailor Moon, although she wouldn’t be opposed to playing through the Persona franchise over and over again.

Laura was supplying Radioactive Nerd with her custom plugs and cameos since 2012 . It wasn’t until 2013 that she took a full roll on the design team, but since then, she has come out with an amazing array of Jewelry and Buttons. She is obsessed with Disney, but she has been known to enjoy fantasy and sci fi of all stripes.

Susan is our newest team member. She came on as the secondary seamstress in the autumn of 2017, and was quickly brought on to the design team. Her human-sized designs are still in the manufacturing stage, but in the meantime you can find her amazing work at Wardrobe Whimseys on Instagram. Her fandom is Steven Universe.

Radioactive Nerd is dedicated to creating beautiful, ethical designs every femme can feel alive in. We believe that everyone should be able to wear their passion on their sleeves.That is why we use the standard sizing system instead of the fashion/junior sizing used by most brands. This way we make sure that we can clothe all body types.
