If you’ve ever thought about the uniforms of the Imperial Officers in the Star Wars universe (because who hasn’t), you might not be surprised to find out their designs were based on the uniforms worn by the Nazis (thanks to my friend Betty for this useful trivia!) This sometimes all black and intimidating uniform was the first thing I thought of when I got a hold of this amazing long sleeve faux leather dress. With clean lines and a futuristic cut, this is an easy day to night dress that works especially well in the colder seasons. This dress will definitely command attention, even from the dark side.
Today’s post may look like a typical outfit post (which it partially is), but I also wanted to take a second to talk a little bit about the Geek Fashion Panel that I had the pleasure of speaking on at Comikaze 2014. With all the different type of geek fashion bloggers and geek clothing designers on the panel, we had a great time discussing all sorts of topics – what we’d like to see for the future of geek fashion, what our personal geek fashion style is, and even how we decide if we’re going to purchase a piece a piece of geek clothing? We definitely touched on things I rarely thought about such as “knock off” pieces and knowing if you’re buying an original design versus a copy cat. I was even surprised to find
With Halloween only a day away, it may be a little too late to plan an elaborate costume, but that’s where I’m here to help! There are tons of ways to make pseudo costumes -Disney bounding anyone? And this WeLoveFine Princess Leia dress is just another simple way to get the gist of the character across. With a white dress, white boots, and maybe a brown cap with buns, you could easily pull off a “Star Wars bound” look! Also, American Apparel always has a ton of great ideas with their simple pieces. Good luck and Happy Halloween!
Today’s outfit reminds me of my sophomore year English teacher who used to dress like she was always in the ’70s – bell bottoms, lace, bell sleeves, and lots of crochet! I’m usually not one for jumpsuits or one piece outfits, but I love the unique crochet detail on this piece and how it seamlessly flows into the shorts portion of the onesie. With the right accessories, this could even be considered the outfit for the modern witch, don’t you think? Happy Halloween!
Usually around this time of year, you can find me carving pumpkins, decorating my house, and getting ready to hand out candy. However, this year is going to be a little different since I’ll actually be at Comikaze Expo the weekend of Halloween. I’m honestly a little sad to be missing out on all the festivities but regardless, I’m super thrilled to be going to Comikaze and debuting my latest cosplay! Since I’ll be missing out on the actual holiday, I’m definitely going to take advantage of all the days leading up to Halloween by wearing some Halloween inspired outfits! This head to toe bat print top/skirt combo is super festive and cute at the same time. Now if only I could get away with this outfit the rest of the year…
“Welcome, foolish mortals, to the Haunted Mansion. I am your host, your… ghost host.”
Disneyland may be awesome all year round, but it’s especially magical around the holidays. Halloween Time is one of my favorite times at Disneyland and as a huge fan of the Haunted Mansion ride, I especially love seeing this classic ride getting transformed with the Nightmare Before Christmas theme. I recently picked up this Haunted Mansion shirt on my last visit to the park and was excited to find that even though this may look like just your average skull face on the front, the “nose” is actually the Hat Box Ghost! I guess now we know where he mysteriously disappeared to!
It finally feels like the weather is transitioning from summer to fall, which means I can finally start wearing boots again! This may be one of the few times during the year where you can wear boots with a skirt and not have to wear tights due to the cold! I love that this mini skirt is perfect for some tall boots, but has a sheer overlay to “shield” your legs. And something about polka dots reminds me of the old fashioned way they used to print comics, which is why I thought my Marvel comics dress would be the perfect top. Let’s hope it doesn’t get too cold too soon!
