A Snoopy Thanksgiving

Peanuts Gap Snoopy Sweater

Marcy may have said it best when she said –

But Thanksgiving is more than eating, Chuck… We should just be thankful for being together. I think that’s what they mean by Thanksgiving, Charlie Brown.

Captain America Varsity Jacket

I’m sure it comes to no surprise to find out that I was definitely not a cheerleader type in high school nor would I have ever even come close to wearing someone’s varsity jacket. Maybe that wasn’t even a “thing” in my high school, but I’ve definitely seen enough teen movies to stereotype the scenario in my head. I may have been as far as possible from the cheerleading world, but perhaps my inner cheerleader was just waiting for her own team to root for? I love that this Captain America varsity jacket finally merges the jocks with the geeks, at least in my version. Having made it through my first round of chemo and finally recovered (yay!), I’m feeling peppy, great, and ready to rally on to the next round!

Round 1 – Fight!

Chun Li every day cosplayDon’t let the Street Fighter shout out fool you, because today is a very big day. I thought I was done with the hard part, but I think my fight is just beginning. Waiting for the results of my surgery (on top of just healing itself) has been a long journey, but not knowing whether or not I would need chemo was the next big thing I was waiting for. I wish I had better news to share, but I will in fact be going through 4 rounds of chemo in the next few months. Even though I tried to prepare myself for the worst, it was still hard to hear. The decision even came down to percentages. 12% to be exact. I was basically told the difference between going through chemo or not going through chemo was 12%. But what’s really 12%? Continue reading

The Darker Side

Sovrin Tank Top with Zipper Mini SkirtI never thought of myself as an optimistic person. In fact I’m the total opposite being both skeptical and pessimistic. But as expected, the big “C” changes you. I’ve found myself becoming strangely optimistic – like finding meaning in small conversations with random strangers or feeling extremely grateful when I’m having a great day. But of course I have major highs and major lows, sometimes feeling free as a bird or wanting to wear nothing but black. Before my surgery, I actually came upon a small boutique that sold all black clothes and in there, I discovered this amazing brand, Sovrin. The designer had shirts that made me feel like my insides were reflected on the outside (and btw, check out her amazing sword leggings!!). I ordered a few pieces on Etsy and when they arrived, I was ironically incredibly happy to wear them. Oh! And on a side note, they go perfectly with my Force Awakens dark side lipstick!

Cosplay For a Cure – Last Week to Order!


Just a quick heads up that this is the last week that you can order prints! They are just about ready to be printed and I hope to send them out soon. This is the first time I’m doing this so I hope I get all the orders right! ;) And if you don’t want a print, but still want to support the cause, I also have a fundraiser page set up here. Anything helps and thanks so much for your support! <3

Cosplay for a Cure – Store Now Open!

storeenvy_bannerThank you everyone who shared, commented, and took my poll! Everyone has been super supportive through all of this and I’m happy to announce that my cosplay print store is officially OPEN! I spent all weekend researching and figuring out how exactly to run one of these things and I’m super excited to get started! Again, all proceeds will be going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. While I do also believe in supporting early detection, I wanted the main purpose of my donation to be research. Considering 1 in 8 women will get it, don’t you think it’s about time we found a cure?

Prints will only be available to order for 2 weeks only so order soon! And if you want to help the cause, but maybe don’t want a print, feel free to donate directly to my fundraiser. Thank you everyone for the support!
