Flower Power

Lush Floral Tunic Dress

With fall just around the corner, it’s about time to pull out some transitional pieces of clothing. By “transitional”, I’m talking about pieces of clothing that can be worn in between seasons. For example, I love dresses like this one where you could wear them with sandals in the summer and tights and boots in the winter. Plus they are not only comfortable, but super easy to accessorize. Today I’m wearing my Millennium Falcon “potato chip” necklace made by my favorite laser cut jewelry makers, Unpossible Cuts. Last time I wore it, everyone thought it was a potato chip (at least in this photo). I guess I’ve been mistaken for a space slug! Happy Friday and have an awesome long weekend!

To Bead or Not To Bead

Super 7 Star Wars Arcade Shirt and Nasty Gal Beaded Skirt

I must still have armor on the mind because today’s skirt definitely has an “armor” feel to it. I’m loving these gold and silver intricate beads on this skirt that make it way more metallic looking than it really is. Paired with one of my favorite shirts that combines Star Wars and a classic arcade game, it’s just a win-win situation. Even though this is a men’s shirt,  tucking it in and rolling up the sleeves a tad bit really makes a difference to the fit, don’t you think?

Armored Apparel

Sheer Lace dress - wedding outfitI just realized it’s nearly the end of summer and I haven’t done my typical yearly wedding outfit post! Even if wedding season is almost over, this year I’ve been pretty inspired by armor (both seeing it in person in Paris and making armor for my Dragonslayer Ornstein cosplay) and with that, you’ll understand why I am loving this lace dress. The front lace designs remind me of something that might be on a shield or some medieval wear and the long sleeves make this dress something you could wear all year round. With so many weddings and so many dresses, it’s always nice to find something a little different. So, what is your go-to wedding outfit?

Let’s Jam!

Tee Fury Cowboy Bebop shirtIf you’ve ever watched Cowboy Bebop, then you were probably thinking what I was thinking when I saw this shirt. “3, 2, 1, LET’S JAM!” and then followed by Yoko Kanno’s popular theme song for Cowboy Bebop.  Although I don’t watch too much anime anymore, Cowboy Bebop still remains one of my all time favorites.  Tee Fury was kind enough to send me one of their shirts and I didn’t even have to think twice before requesting this one. And even though they do carry girl versions of the shirt designs, I actually opted for a men’s shirt so that I could do a little DIY and transform it into a muscle tank. Keep reading to see how I transformed this men’s tee into a cute tank!

I Am Groot (Making of Baby Groot)

Baby Groot StatueLike many, I loved the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. And I knew it was love when I heard “I’m Not in Love” start playing in the first few minutes. GOTG incorporated everything I enjoyed in a movie – the ’80s, an awesome soundtrack, great characters, and a quirky sense of humor. The moment the movie ended, I was already itching to make some sort of fan art. I just didn’t know what – until I came across one of Funko’s toy posts where they showed this custom Baby Groot! I was so inspired to make my own version of Baby Groot and here’s what I came up with.

Purrfect Prints

Cat Print Dress and Leggings

So if you haven’t noticed yet, there are a couple of crazy things going on in today’s post – all over cat print, shiny leggings, a neon bag, and my “new” red hair! A while ago, I spray painted my hair for the “plume” of my Ornstein cosplay at SDCC. I ended up really liking the way my hair looked all red – plus it was definitely time for a change. With a little help from youtube, I was able to dye my hair red (and not use bleach!) Science is truly amazing! Having red hair definitely made me want to wear something fun and what’s more fun than a bunch of crazy cats all over you?

Peachy for DC

Batman tank with skirt

With all the hype and camping out at Hall H this year, I was a little nervous about getting in to the big WB/DC screening at SDCC for Gotham and The Flash, two new shows airing on WB this Fall 2014.  Surprisingly enough, we were able to show up 10 minutes after the panel started and still get in Hall H with plenty of seats to spare (plus awesome swag bags!). While Gotham was dark and mysterious with glimpses of famous future Gotham villains, The Flash had the feel of one of those great teen angst/origin stories where you can already tell the main character is destined for greatness. Getting to watch these pilots were definitely one of the highlights of SDCC and I’m super excited to see them both on TV this fall. I never thought I would be watching so many DC themed shows on TV and it’s only getting better!
