Disney Boutique Mickey Floral tee outfit

It’s back to school season and even though I am long beyond ever going back to school, today I felt like a kid again in my Disney tee, jeans, and sneakers. I don’t often wear Mickey stuff outside of Disneyland, but I loved the design on this one so much that I made an exception. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always felt that a lot of the women’s apparel at the Disney parks could use a bit of a makeover – in fact, even for this tee, I decided to remove the polka dot pocket because I thought it was a little too much. No matter how much I love being there, I’ve always felt that much of their women’s clothing could use a bit of sprucing up for the contemporary Disney fan girl. What do you think?

Galactic Heroines

Elhoffer Design Galactic Rey Scavenger DressHopefully by now you’ve all seen the Rogue One trailer and liked it as much as I did. I can’t wait for this movie to come out, especially because it’s the first standalone movie and not a direct prequel or sequel of any of the other films. It’s pretty crazy to think that there will be a new Star Wars movie out every single year until 2020 and on top of that a new Star Wars Land opening up at Disneyland! And here’s a tip – if you look closely while riding Thunder Mountain, you can actually see some of the construction going on for it! But back to Rogue One.. Continue reading

King of Summer

We Love Fine Ice King Tropical Blouse

Today’s look is brought to you all the way from the Ice Kingdom! The Ice King is one of the more interesting characters in Adventure Time and you can’t help but like him and at the same time feel bad for and sometimes grossed out by him. Plus his back story with Marceline just gets me every time. :( This was another fun top I picked up from the We Love Fine booth at SDCC (now available on their website) and I thought they did a great job turning the Ice King and Gunther into a fun Hawaiian print. I’m going from work to weekend in today’s post and honestly love both looks. Which one is your favorite?

Pool of Friends

We Love Fine Deadpool DressSDCC might have been two weeks ago, but it’s definitely still on my mind. It almost feels like it was all a dream – the anticipation leading up to preview night, the anxiety of trying to get those special tickets in order to buy exclusive toys, and the major FOMO of everything on the con floor. I spent numerous years going to SDCC with a couple of friends and sometimes just my husband (boyfriend at the time), but it’s only in the past 2-3 years that I’ve really started to appreciate having like minded friends there with me.

Her Universe Fashion Show 2016

Her Universe Lego Dress

Can you believe it? A dress made of Legos!! Designed by Andrew MacLaine and Nathan Sawaya.

I still can’t believe San Diego Comic-Con is over (yes, I have major con depression and con withdrawal) and I don’t even know where to begin in order to sum up the fun time I had there so let’s start with the obvious – the Her Universe Fashion Show. Obviously I love geek fashion so this is a must-see event for me. I even told some friends that this event is like New York Fashion Week for geeks, am I right? The competition was seriously fierce this year and as someone who participated in the show last year, I know how much incredible detail and work went into every garment that walked down the runway – from every bead, every appliqué, every hand made accessory – even down to the shoes. I know how much blood, sweat, and tears went into every stitch so hats off too all the amazing designers. There’s not much else to say, so on with the photos!

See You at San Diego Comic-Con!

 
 
It’s that crazy time of year again where your first world problems consist of things like “My feet hurt from comic-con” or “The food in Hall H is terrible” or maybe “There aren’t enough pokestops around the convention!” This may be my 17th-ish SDCC, but it feels just as new and exciting as the first. Unlike other cons where I might spend most of my time cosplaying, this is the con where my focus is about exclusives, panels, checking out what’s new on the floor, and just having a great time with friends. Of course, there will still be cosplay. With all that’s happened this year, I’m in a very “YOLO” mood these days and decided to finally cosplay a character I have always wanted to be, but never had the guts to – Psylocke. I’ll be wearing the X-Men Apocalypse version, which I love because of the added armor. And with my recent hair cut, I also threw in a last minute Jubilee, roughly based on the Kotobukiya figure, but with some ’80s elements. It’s gonna be a fun time so I hope to see you there! 

Space and Beyond

Star Trek Tee and Skirt Outfit

Today’s post marks an inaugural occasion as I just got my very first Star Trek shirt! I may be a die hard Star Wars fan, but that doesn’t mean I can’t show some love for Star Trek. I actually spent some of my teen years falling in love with the original Star Trek TV show and  instead of having teen heartthrob posters on my wall, I had photos of a young Captain Kirk and Spock. <3 Some people may say Star Wars OR Star Trek, but I say both! And with Star Trek Beyond coming out next week, Star Trek’s 50th anniversary, Aliens 30th anniversary, and the new Rogue One trailer that’s coming out any moment now, it’s an awesome time to be a sci-fi fan.
