With Wondercon just around the corner, today’s “outfit” features some very interesting accessories. For example, a girl’s gotta have her gloves…
I recently had the opportunity to sit down and chat with Henry from The Geek Speak Show and discuss the upcoming panel that I’ll be in this weekend at Wondercon - The Battle For Multicultural Heroes. Check out my interview below! For the full podcast (“The Warm-up to Wondercon 2014″, listen to it here). It’s going to be a great discussion with Tony Kim (Crazy4ComicCon), Andre Meadows (Black Nerd Comedy), and clinical psychologist Dr. Andrea Letamendi (Under the Mask) so hope to see you there!
You know those college street fairs where they sell all sorts of stuff you don’t need? Especially the people who sell every kind of poster that you can think of? Well, when I saw this poster in college, I instantly fell in love with the art, the concept, and yes, it was probably weird that I had some naked backsides on my wall… but oh well! I didn’t really care. Strangely enough, I only knew one Pink Floyd song at the time, so you can call me a poser if you want, but for some weird reason, that poster stayed with me for years to come. And with LST&FND partnering with American Eagle Outfitters to make some cool vintage style tanks, I knew this one Pink Floyd tank top would fit perfectly into my wardrobe.
It’s been a while since I last felt the rush of getting a new cosplay done in time for a con and this week has been one of those weeks. With me trying to find time to work on my cosplay (while my deliveries go missing) and at the same time dealing with SDCC hotel madness, it’s no wonder that by Friday, I’m pretty wiped out and just want to curl up with my controller and Dark Souls. With little energy left to put into an outfit, today’s outfit embodies the simplicity and laziness of a Friday with this Free People maxi dress. And now I’m off to bury myself in lots of cosplay making craziness! Have a great (and productive) weekend!
Ah, Wonder Woman. One of my favorite heroines, but one I will probably never cosplay. Sure, I could be a lanky version of this Amazonian princess, but I think I’m more suited for Wonder Girl to be honest, which I’m especially fond of after buying the Lauren Faust designed Super Best Friends figurines last year at SDCC. You may not see me in a Wonder Woman cosplay anytime soon, but in the meantime, this shirt will have to do. Today I’m wearing it with some tribal shorts, which I think is pretty fitting, given her origins – don’t you think? And luckily Wonder Woman is iconic enough that you should have no problem finding a shirt to suit your own personal style. Have a WONDERful day!
It may be the rainy weather or the fact that I was just passed out and sick for days, but there’s something about a comfy sweatshirt that just makes me feel good. On top of that, this sweatshirt is very Bret McKenzie a la Flight of the Conchords, making it 20% cooler. ;) If you were a fan of the show like I was, Bret was almost always wearing a shirt, sweatshirt, or jumper with an animal on it and I think he would have approved of this one. Happy Friday, people!

Apologies for the lack of posts lately, but unfortunately I’ve been sick all week. :( However, now that the Wondercon schedule has been released, I had to write a quick post since I am super excited (and very nervous) to announce that I will be participating in my very first panel at Wondercon this year, titled “The Battle for Multicultural Heroes”!! Join me and fellow panelists Tony Kim (Crazy4ComicCon), Andre Meadows (Black Nerd Comedy), and clinical psychologist Dr. Andrea Letamendi (Under the Mask) as we talk about what it means for us as as a group of multicultural geeks. Panel starts at 10:30AM on Saturday so hope to see you there!
