Now that one big event is over, it’s on to the next big event – Rogue One! Hopefully everyone got their Rogue One tickets the other day – if not, you better hurry! I haven’t actually decided what I’ll be wearing when I go camp out in line, but isn’t it great to have so many options? I mean, I could wear a full on costume or just wear a regular Star Wars shirt. Or I could even do a casual cosplay with this cool Finn jacket (formerly Poe’s)! Throw on a black tee, black jeans, and boots and you’re pretty much good to go! And even if you don’t go the casual route, you can easily dress this jacket up with a frilly skirt, heels, and some shiny jewelry for your next holiday party! I am actually thrilled that this jacket came back in stock since I missed it the first time (I was waiting for the sale!) and the quality, fit, and design is everything I thought it would be. So whether you go casual or dressy, this jacket is fit for any rebel.
Hopefully everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving and/or is still getting ready for more holiday dinners this weekend (I know I am!). When it comes to holiday dinners, I’ve always felt that you can’t go wrong with a sweater. Whether it be an ugly Christmas sweater, an itchy wool sweater, or even a cardigan, a sweater is always appropriate attire for that family/friends dinner. And this Spider-Gwen sweater couldn’t have arrived at a better time! Continue reading
It’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but Black Friday deals have already started! While I love a good deal, I’m also trying the Marie Kondo idea where I only buy stuff I absolutely love. At the same time, I’m also trying not to feel guilty for all the stuff I already bought! Serious first world problems, I know. :) So with that, on to this year’s Black Friday deals! Try to contain yourself!
If you asked me who my idol was when I was 6 years old, the answer would have enthusiastically been “Mickey Mouse!!”. Back then, I easily obsessed over Mickey Mouse and the golden age of cartoons like The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Pocahontas, and so on. It was definitely an amazing time to be a Disney fan and as an adult, I never thought I might become an even bigger fan of everything Disney. Disney has really grown the past couple of years, especially with the acquisition of Star Wars, and it’s no surprise that they’ve even collaborated with big brands like Uniqlo for a line of cool Disney gear. I absolutely love this shirt I’m wearing (bonus points because there’s an angry Mickey) and thought it was especially fitting today since it’s Mickey’s 88th birthday! Happy Birthday, Mickey, and thanks for bringing so much joy into my life!
You may be thinking, “What’s a men’s blazer doing on a women’s geek fashion blog??”. Well, this is no ordinary blazer. It’s a BATMAN BLAZER!! I’ve been friends with Tony Kim (aka Crazy4ComicCon) for many years now and besides being a super fan of comic con, bringing awareness to multi-ethnic geek culture, and being a panel host extraordinaire, he’s now taking his fandom to even greater heights by starting his own clothing line, appropriately titled “Hero Within“. I have to admit – I had no idea Tony had such a passion for men’s clothing! But then I remembered seeing his Comic-Con Bag Blazer and it all made sense. :) Us geek girls have gotten a lot of love the past few years with more and more geeky women’s clothing so it’s a nice change to finally see some love for geeky menswear too!
With sandal season over, I’ve sort of been on a sneaker buying binge lately. I can’t help it – they’re comfortable, cute, and did I mention affordable? Well, unless you’re buying ones like this $480 pair. :P Anyhow, I recently came across these Adidas kicks that gave me the warm fuzzies of not only the ’80s but a tiny bit of Marty’s shoes from Back to the Future 2. Seeing as how the replica pair is not going to be affordable any time soon, these are a pretty nice back up! Plus they were perfect to wear with my BTTF pins that I picked up from the BAIT booth at SDCC! I’ve been a Disney pin collector for about 3 years now and I love that pins are the latest craze these days. They’re an easy way to throw in your favorite fandom to your daily outfit, backpack, purse, and really anything!
Happy November! I just got back from Stan Lee Comic Con (aka Los Angeles Comic Con aka Comikaze) and I’m sad to admit that this may be the end of my cosplay season for the year! My next big con will probably be Wondercon 2017 so until then, I’ll probably be working on my Etsy store orders, organizing my cosplay/craft area and going down the list of sewing projects that I’ve racked up over the years. I have a few fun projects up my sleeve so hopefully those will keep me busy over the next few months. As for Comikaze, I had such a great time this weekend, hung out with some great con friends and of course had a great time cosplaying. Continue reading
