Happy Halloween! If there’s one dress you might want to own for this time of year, it’s the basics black dress with a Peter Pan collar. You can dress it up goth, cutesy, or even become Wednesday Addams in an instant. It looks cute with heels and tights or even some long socks and military boots. And to accessorize, you can even put a cute pin on the chest or collar like I did. Hot Topic seems to come out with a version of this dress all the time so grab one while you can!
Ok, let me be the first to admit that I don’t regularly play Overwatch. However, I did play it for about 6 hours and know that almost every character is like a cosplayer’s dream! D.Va is definitely one of those characters that’s so cute and easy fall in love with (personally I liked playing her and Black Widow), so when my friend at Cake Shop Couture came out with these amazing D.Va jackets, I knew I had to have one. I love the whole high school varsity team look and love everything about this jacket from the color to the bunny patch. If you’re looking for a last minute casual Halloween look, maybe this is the one for you! Awww yeah!
With Halloween only one week away, I’m starting to feel like I’m behind in all my Halloween activities! I haven’t carved my pumpkin, haven’t put up any decorations, and definitely have not had enough pumpkin spiced treats. But at least I have one thing ready – something orange and black! I’ve been on a ’90s fashion kick lately and have especially been into Asian inspired clothing and prints so this dress was practically calling to me. Sure, this dress may not be meant for Halloween, but it sure would go well with some zombie or vampire makeup, don’t you think?
I’ve always been fascinated with Japanese culture ever since I can remember – from cosplay to lolita fashion, the Harajuku to Shibuya districts, Japanese toys and goodies, and of course all things cute. One of my first obsessions with Japanese culture came from Sailor Moon. I remember it clearly – my parents had gone on a trip to Japan and my dad brought me back one of these book “guides” to Sailor Moon when it must have been on TV in Japan. I had never even watched or heard of this show, but I poured over the material inside the book like I was studying it. Inside was all sorts of cool artwork, screenshots from TV episodes, character descriptions, and basically everything you wanted to know about that season. Of course I couldn’t read a single word of it because it was in Japanese, but regardless, Continue reading
My posts may always seem like sunshine and rainbows, but I assure you that it’s not always that way. The last couple of weeks have been a bit rough to say the least – multiple doctor appointments plus some annual exams to make sure I’m still in remission, which definitely put me on an emotional roller coaster. Surviving cancer is a triumphant thing, but people often forget once you’ve survived, it’s never really the end. It’s really just a journey where often times the first couple years are still filled with doctor appointments, blood draws, and constant check ups. You think a lot about the percentages, making it to your yearly milestone, and worries about things that may potentially cause a recurrence. I still have my days where I feel sorry for myself and wish my life wasn’t the way it is, but I also have days where I feel great and just want to be a rainbow. Continue reading
Hopefully everyone got to pause for at least a few minutes for Monday’s eclipse because it was definitely a site to see! As a former astronomy nerd who used to keep posters of the solar system and star charts on my bedroom walls, this will definitely go down as a very memorable event. Even though California was only about 80% dark, it was still pretty awesome getting to witness this natural phenomenon of our universe. Seeing stuff like this definitely makes you appreciate the universe just a little bit more and makes you realize just how small we are, doesn’t it? In celebration of such an big event, I thought it was the perfect time to wear my galaxy print shirt, complete with this minty pastel circle skirt that I made (link to tutorial below). I am basically obsessed with anything printed with stars, moons, and the like so this shirt was right up my alley. Now we only have to wait another 28 years for the next full solar eclipse of 2045!!
SDCC is finally here and if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you can probably tell I’m super excited. These past few weeks have been a bit crazy, finishing my season 3 Sabine cosplay, reading all about upcoming Comic-Con exclusives, and of course planning what to see and what events I want to go to! With constant news being released, my plans are constantly changing! And of course, there’s the big question of “What am I going to wear??” In fact, I was thinking so much about this that I ended up going through my blog and looking at some of my older posts for inspiration! So if you’re stuck packing like I have been, here are some ideas – click on any of the photos to see the full post. Hope to see you guys at Comic-Con!!
