Skull print fashion seems to be everywhere these days. Alexander McQueen’s popular skull print scarves, skull prints in “couture” clothing, and even in some of the jewelry from Disney Couture. When did skull jewelry, skull accessories, and even skull prints go from being seen as “goth” or “rebellious” to just plain trendy? I’ve enjoyed skull print stuff for a long time now and it’s good and bad that there are so many options these days. 5 years ago, I would have never found a feminine skull print dress like this one from Royal Bones, but on the downside, it’s getting to be just as common as any other print. I guess the hard part is weeding out the trendy items from the quality items. My tip for that is to definitely go with the more unique pieces since they are more likely to be timeless!
When I first read this Forbes article on what to wear for E3, I was pretty disappointed. I admit that the outfit with the blazer plus company/gaming/geek tee was a great idea, though not the exact pieces I might have chosen. But going sort of “punk” to a S.T.E.A.M. Punk (Science.Technology. Engineering, Art, Math) E3 party was ridiculous. The writer obviously didn’t do her research (probably because she didn’t know steampunk was a “thing”) and it was offensive to geeks everywhere. Note that this part of the article has since been removed due to all the negative comments, but can be seen here. The easiest way to offend geeky people is to misuse something that is near and dear to them – for eg, using a Vulcan Salute at a Star Wars convention or saying something like “Aren’t Star Wars and Star Trek the same thing?”.
I have been to plenty of E3s and from a fashion standpoint, you really get a wide variety of people- Continue reading
I’m finally back and recovered from Disneyland! I’m also sadly one year older. Sigh! Attempting 24 hours at Disneyland was crazy. I think we ended up spending something like 16 hours there, and even though we didn’t survive the entire 24 hours (we only made it until 3am), I had a blast! Parades at midnight, breakfast burritos, dance parties, TV crews, and people dressed up in costumes and even in their pajamas! It was an amazing experience, but I will probably never do it again! I definitely felt like a zombie once midnight passed and the drive home was torture. But with that, I wanted to share my Disneyland outfit of the day! Happy Friday!
For someone who lives a 6 hour drive away from LA, I am pretty sure I frequent Disneyland more than the average person in the Bay Area. Estimating something like 2 times a year for the past 10+ years, I’d say I’ve been there quite a lot, almost to the point where I must go at least once a year. And for the first time in my life, I am an annual pass holder, which means Disneyland all year round!! Woo hoo! Some of you may wonder if one would just get sick of Disneyland after a while, but if you’ve been there enough, you’ll come to realize that there is a whole ‘nother dimension of Disneyland - Disneyana.

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”!
The title says it all. Happy Star Wars Day! I love May 4th because it just gives you an excuse to re-watch your favorite Star Wars episode and wear your favorite Star Wars tee. Wait, I guess I do that every once in a while anyways. I guess it also gives you reasoning to be able to talk about Star Wars all day long and force your friends to listen to it. How about that? On top of that, what could be better than Star Wars day except that it happens to also be the same day as Free Comic Book Day! Amazing! The stars have aligned today and all is right in the universe. Of course I got my fix of both. What about you guys?
If there’s one thing about geeks, it’s that they love their fan art. One of my favorite things to check out at cons is the Artist Alley and you can guarantee that I will always come home with at least one new piece of art. But it doesn’t stop there. I was recently exploring Society6.com only to find that they now make printed pillow cases! So not only can you hang your geeky art, but you can cozy up to it on the couch. With that, I wanted to share a few of my favorite pieces of art that I’ve picked up from cons over the years as well as some fun ways to make your home more geeky!
