I finally got around to editing and adding pics of my Nathan Drake and Zombie Princess Bubblegum cosplay! I have such great memories wearing both of these to Wondercon. With Drake, it meant so much to me when people noticed my leather craftsmanship and shared their love of Uncharted with me. For PB, I loved that kids would point to me and say “It’s Princess Bubblegum!!” and sometimes get a little scared once seeing that I had a zombie face. Hope you enjoy these as much as I did wearing them!
I knew that Big Wow Comic Fest was going to be pretty fun, but I have to say I had a blast. Like Yoda says, “Size matters not” and even though Big Wow is a smaller con, they really brought it this year with some awesome guests and fun panels. Seriously, how often do you get to meet people like J.Scott Campbell and Stan Lee, but without the enormous lines? Or even sit front row to watch Adam Hughes or Frank Cho draw right before your eyes? It definitely beats having to watch them on a big screen in a 5,000 person room, that’s for sure. I mean, places like SDCC may bring the movie stars, but I’m starting to realize that you have to do 10xs the waiting in order to see maybe a guest that’s only a little bit cooler.
Since the con was just a car ride away, I decided to bring one of my most treasured art pieces Continue reading →
Wedding season is upon us! Even though I have been to a ton of weddings, every time I go to one, I still have to ask myself, “What should I wear?” When it comes to attending weddings, there are definitely some rules to follow – you want to look nice, but not outshine the bride. You want to dress for warm weather, but not be too skimpy. And then there are unsaid rules such as “never wear white to a wedding” (unless your white dress doesn’t really look white) and what about black? What’s the rule on wearing black? I don’t have the answer to all of these, but I will be providing some ideas so that hopefully it will make your decision easier next time you’re wondering, “What should I wear?”
I wanted to title this post something cheesy like “Darth Helmut”, but given that the world of Helmut Lang and Darth Vader don’t cross over too often, I decided not to. I recently got this Helmut Lang wrap skirt and fell in love the moment I put it on. It’s one of those skirts that you can dress up or down and way it’s draped in a way that would flatter anyone’s figure. Oh, and did I mention how comfortable and soft it is?
I know the weekend just passed, but if you don’t have any plans NEXT weekend, definitely check out Big Wow Comic Fest down in San Jose. I went for the first time last year and this year is already looking to be even better than the last, with more cosplay panels, lots of special guests such as J.Scott Campbell, Frank Cho, Travis Charest, Adam Hughes, and even Stan Lee! And Big Wow is doing something that I’ve never witnessed before – a geek fashion show! It’s right up my alley and I can’t wait to see what some of the designers come up with! Hope to see you there! I may (or may not be) in disguise, so stay tuned!
Happy Friday! Wearing one of my favorite tanks that just came back in stock – the “I Only Date Super Heroes” tank top! And coincidentally enough, I’m also wearing almost all Forever 21 clothes in this post. I may not be 21 anymore, but their clothes are seriously fun and soo affordable that I’d be surprised if there are any women out there who don’t own something from that store! But buyers be warned – you definitely have to be picky about what you buy there. T-shirts and tanks, definitely. Leggings, definitely. Jackets and pants, depends on the fabric and quality. Shoes? Maybe not. Unlike many stories I hear, I personally have never had anything “fall apart” on me or get “destroyed” in the wash, but then again, I am very picky about what I buy from there, so definitely be careful! That’s why they say, “you get what you pay for”!
Last week was practically a heat wave in the Bay Area! And even though I’ve been living in dresses, skirts, and floral for the past few weeks, it looks like it’s getting chilly again so it’s a perfect time to wear some of my lightweight sweaters. I’ve been loving this Joie Aimee sweater since it’s not only thin and lightweight, but it’s also made of Alpaca, which is warm like wool, but without the itch factor. If you have never tried on an Alpaca sweater, I highly recommend it as a great alternative to wool and cashmere!
