Christmas is just around the corner and I’ve been trying to enjoy every moment leading up to it. I’ve already watched Home Alone, had tons of peppermint flavored everything, put up my Christmas lights, my Christmas tree, finished my Christmas shopping, and have been listening to Christmas music all month long! And, I’ve even picked up some new Christmas sweaters! “Ugly” Christmas sweaters are all the craze these days and there’s nothing more festive than a good Christmas sweater, or better yet a geeky Christmas sweater! I not only love the design of this Batman sweater (Gotham city on your sleeves? YES!), but I was really impressed at the overall quality of the knit. There are a lot of cheap-o sweaters out there so I love that this is not itchy, soft, and doesn’t look 10 years old just after one wear! So, what are some of your favorite geeky Christmas sweaters? I would love to see!
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!
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 Stan Lee Comic Con just around the corner and me being in “cosplay mode“, it just dawned on me over the weekend how close Halloween is! Not that I need an excuse to wear black, but I was definitely in the mood to pull out some black lace, black boots, and black knee highs. But to be honest, the real reason I wore this outfit was really to go with my bat print nails!! I’ve been using Espionage Cosmetics nail wraps for a couple years now and they have really become my go-to brand for nail art, given that these are nail stickers and much less toxic than nail polish, last way longer, and are mistake-free. Of course they have tons of great nerdy prints to choose from, but the best thing about these particular bat print wraps are that they glow in the dark!! Yes, you heard that right. How cool is that?? Halloween may be around the corner, but I know for a fact that I’ll be wearing these all year round!
Ever since I went pastel, I’ve found myself being a lot more conscious of the colors I’m wearing. Suddenly I’m not sure if I should be wearing red plaid shirts or a mustard yellow sweater! On the flip side, when I had red hair, I found myself never wearing pastel colors and wearing tons of black. And now it seems like I’m back to wearing light spring colors as well as lots of blacks and whites. It may be way past the season for wearing springtime pastels, but it looks like it’s going to be a colorful winter! I swear I wasn’t trying to match my hair today, but I’m loving this light purple/grey pleated skirt from Uniqlo (and it’s at a great price!) Also, I’m especially loving Uniqlo these days because of their awesome Disney line. I totally went crazy stocking up on their Disney tees so if you’re a Disney fan, be prepared!
I guess I’m a little late to the party, but it’s officially October!! If you ask cosplayers how they feel about October and Halloween, I know a lot of them say it’s no big deal and that “every day is Halloween to a cosplayer”. However, I feel the exact opposite and still love October, love Halloween, and love the whole vibe around the start of fall. Sure, I don’t do anything big in terms of costumes for Halloween, but handing out candy to kids, decorating our house, and carving crazy pumpkins are still some of my favorite fall activities. And so, I’m officially kicking off this month with this appropriate bat skirt (and cute matching necklace from Loot Wear)! And for the rest of the cosplayers out there, how do you guys feel about Halloween?
