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!!
Happy 7th Birthday, Her Universe! I can’t believe it’s already been 7 years! To think that when I first started this blog 5 years ago, I only had a handful of women’s geeky shirts and now I could put together a full on head to toe ensembles of different fandoms! I mean, check out one of my earlier blog posts here, centered around a very basic fitted Star Wars tee, which I was soo excited for at the time because it was such a rare find! Looking back on these old blog posts, it’s amazing to see how far geek fashion has come and I can’t help but think Her Universe had a huge part in all this. Continue reading
“The owls are not what they seem”. If you’ve heard this line before, then you obviously know what I’m talking about. Yup, the ’90s cult TV show known as Twin Peaks. To sum it up, this show was all sorts of weird – in fact, the mystery of “Who Killed Laura Palmer?” is probably the most normal thing about the show. It’s really the creepy imagery, the backwards talking dwarf, the giant that appears in dreams, and the snappy slow music that made this show as great as it was. And yes, it’s back.
There was a time in my life where I might have considered myself a hardcore gamer – I played on a professional team, we played in tournaments, had daily practice and played like it was our job (in actuality, it was). Nowadays, I only devote time to games that I really really want to play (Uncharted, Last of Us, Dark Souls, for example). And when it comes to new console releases, I’ve become the type to wait until the reviews come out before even considering the purchase. However, if there’s one thing I regret, it’s not pre-ordering the Nintendo Switch. Continue reading
The holiday force is strong in my house and even though it’s easy to get caught up in all the holiday bustle (only 2 more weeks to shop!!!), the sugary sweets, and the non-stop Christmas music, it’s sometimes good to sit back and think about presents. Except not Christmas presents, but more like “being present” in the now. Once in a while, I like to just take a moment to sit, have a cup of hot cocoa, and cuddle up with my loved ones while wearing my favorite kigurumi. I seriously don’t know what took me so long to get one of these. I mean, I have this Pikachu hoodie that is almost a kigurumi, but not quite. And now that I have not just one, but two, I feel like I can’t live without it! For people like me who love being in a nice warm blanket, you will absolutely love these. Kigurumi.com makes the most authentic ones and their designs are freakishly cute. Whether you get one for yourself, your significant other, or even your parents, there’s definitely a kigurumi for everyone!
No, I’m not wearing a dress covered in loaves of bread. Those short blobs of cuteness are in fact corgis! Made by Kira Kira Doodles, I picked up this dress during Stan Lee Comic Con the other month and I have to say, it’s had quite a journey. I had purchased the dress on the first night of the con and stored it away (or so I thought) for the rest of the weekend. A few days later while unpacking from my trip, I could not for the life of me find that dress! I contacted Uber (maybe I left it in the car?) and harassed my Airbnb host to keep checking his apartment, to the point where he started to ignore my messages. Then I remembered that the last time I saw it was on the night I purchased it while eating dinner at a Korean restaurant! Could I have left my dress there?
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!
