For the longest time, girls who were both stylish and geeky couldn’t express themselves without sacrificing one of those things, but that’s no longer a problem thanks to Ashley Mertz. The owner of Etsy store GoChaseRabbits, Mertz specializes in crafting stylish skirts with nerd-centric prints. For instance, you’re currently staring at her creation inspired by the periodic table. Customers get to choose their favorite elements and Mertz will sew a personalized skirt for them, complete with atomic number and atomic mass. These skirts are as brainy as it gets.

Among the other bizarre things Ashley Mertz has turned into skirt prints are Hot Wheels cars, Transformers characters, computer keys, Star Trek Enterprise blueprints, Marvel Comics images, the Delorean car from Back to the Future and Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street.
