You may have been hearing a lot of buzz around “everyday cosplay” and “Disney bounding” lately and wondered what that was. To explain, this is basically a casual take on cosplay where your outfit isn’t a full on costume, but something inspired by that character in either the color scheme, style of clothing, or even a certain prop. Even clothing companies have jumped on this idea by printing what looks like a costume onto a shirt, hoodie, or maybe leggings. Remember those giant T-shirts that had hot bikini bodies printed on them back in the ’80s and ’90s? Well, you get the idea. And then there’s also “Disney bounding” where you are essentially dressing up like Disney characters, but not in full costume. For example, Continue reading
When Her Universe announced the pre-order for their new Avengers line for Hot Topic, I immediately knew I had better grab these fast. Not only were they incredibly designed, but they were also designed in collaboration with last year’s winners of the SDCC 2014 Her Universe Fashion Show! I love the retro pin-up style of the pieces and not only do they look amazing, but they have exceptional quality for the prices. I immediately fell in love with this Loki dress as I have always had a fondness for retro sweetheart halter style dresses. The green and black keep it pretty classy and the gold design on the bottom is a nice subtle nod to everyone’s favorite Marvel villain. And on that note, I wanted to officially share that Continue reading
I know, I know… You’re thinking, “Another Star Wars outfit??” Well, like it or not, right now is a great time to be a Star Wars fan. Not only is there so much excitement over The Force Awakens, but Celebration VII just happened and that came with so much cool merchandise, including some very awesome new apparel from one of my favorite geeky brands, We Love Fine. I love how fashion forward they are and that especially shows in some of the new stuff that came out at Celebration. I was dying over this Luke Skywalker Landspeeder tank at their booth, but wasn’t able to get my hands on one until they got released online the other week. It’s definitely a little bit of a throwback to the ’80s (you know I love the ’80s) and this time I decided to pair it with a pair of white skinny jeans and big hoop earrings to compliment the era.
Everyone has a bad day once in a while and it’s days like today that I rely on fashion to perk up my mood. This X-Wing tank by Fifth Sun easily did the trick with it’s fun rainbow graphics and slight ’80s throwback. I decided to go even more ’80s by pairing it with this denim vest, which I am loving as an alternative piece to wear with my geeky tees. And don’t forget you can get your own X-Wing tank by entering my giveaway with Fifth Sun on Instagram! 3 lucky people will get their choice of tee or tank from Fifth Sun, so don’t miss out!

People always ask me how I’m able to maintain this blog, have a full time job, make cosplays, and not go insane. And I always tell them the same thing – it’s really a labor of love. This weekend took my “labor of love” to the next level as I got the opportunity to film with Nerdist for an entire day! I’m still trying to figure out how this all happened and I’m incredibly humbled that they even reached out to me in the first place. The whole experience was amazing and one that I’ll never forget! Of course, filming for over 9 hours was extremely exhausting and this morning I woke up feeling like I couldn’t move – well, barely enough to turn on my phone and watch an episode of The Clone Wars. However, once I dragged myself out of bed, I quickly realized it was May 4th and was super excited to celebrate Star Wars once again! I’m not sure how one is supposed to celebrate Star Wars Day these days, but all I know is that the force was definitely with me this weekend and especially today. Happy Star Wars Day and May the Force Be With You!
As most ’80s kids remember, there were a few staple cartoons that everyone watched back in the day – G.I.Joe, Transformers, Thunder Cats, and definitely He-Man just to name a few. I was obsessed with He-Man (and She-Ra) back in the day and I especially remember the shocking soap opera moment when you first found out that She-Ra was He-Man’s sister! O-M-G. My life was forever changed. :) So you can see why I was super excited to find this simple, but not so simple He-Man vs. Skeleton shirt (bonus points that it’s in Lucha Libre style!) It quickly reminded me of summer days, the beach, and the good ol’ care free days.
