Anime NYC 2022 – Blerd™

Blerds on a mission!

Blerd™ is real, honest, and powerful. Forging a community out of the people that many like to pretend weren’t always present in comic book shops, game stores, and conventions, Blerd™ is the reality that black nerds aren’t new, and we love it.

Blerd™ is a brand that features collaborative pieces with artwork from black artists, spreading their work through fun pieces you can wear during your day out or at the convention. They work with black artists by reaching out at events to collaborate on new styles, apparel, and accessories.

We love their Sailor Blerd Collection!

Spotlighting the works of black creators across the spectrum, not just artists, they also work with cosplayers, writers, gamers, podcasters, and beyond! Blerd is building a positive community of black nerds supporting black excellence.
