Have You Seen This Girl?

Ramona Flowers casual cosplay outfit

Have you ever looked in the mirror and realized that you’re unintentionally cosplaying? Well, the other day I had one of those moments. I was wearing my favorite striped dress and decided I needed a light jacket to wear over it. Fall is all about layering so I put on an army shirt with a light hoodie underneath. I was halfway through my day when I suddenly realized who I resembled – Ramona Flowers. Granted, Ramona Flowers has SO many looks in not only the comic and the movie, but something about my outfit totally reminded me of her or even a version of a cosplay that I had seen before. Perhaps it was a combination of the blue hair, the military shirt over a hoodie, the stripes, or the stars on my bag, but I’m sure deep down I was ready to save the world.

Ghoulish Girl

Cute Skull Collar Top Ghoulish October OutfitHappy October!! It’s officially time for pumpkin flavored treats, ghoulish attire, and of course costumes! But hey, it’s not like I really need an excuse for any of those things the rest of the year, right? Not only do I love all the fun stuff that goes on during this time of year, but I also love the fact that Halloween themed fabrics and clothes are so readily available! I just picked up this adorably fun top from Modcloth and I don’t think I’ve never seen a skull look any cuter than on the collar of this top. Be sure to check out all the other great spooktacular items on their site and stock up while you can!

In the Name of the Moon

GU Uniqlo Sailor Moon shirt outfit

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

Force Friday Everyday

AT-ST Tropics Her Universe Tank Top Outfit

Happy Force Friday! I am actually extremely proud of myself because believe it or not, I did not buy one thing for Force Friday. The only thing I got was actually this very cool tee that Toys R Us was giving away at midnight! It probably helped that I spent last night cleaning my garage for 3 hours and organizing close to 5 giant tupperware bins of old Star Wars toys. Cleaning can definitely make you realize Continue reading

Lust in Space

Galaxy print shirt and mint green skirt

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!!

Smells Like Trash Panda

Rocket Raccoon Nirvana Tee 90s Grunge Outfit When it comes to buying stuff at cons, especially San Diego Comic-Con, it’s all about lots of swag, exclusives, and cool merch, right?? Wrong!! For someone who already has way too much stuff and is constantly trying to declutter (keyword being “trying”), shopping at cons is such a challenge for me. As a collector, I want everything! But on the other hand, I’m trying to only buy stuff I really really love (suggests Mari Kondo). Even though I am a victim of having way too many geeky shirts, I did happen to pick up a few good ones at SDCC this year – one of my favorites being this trash panda one reminiscent of Nirvana’s classic smiley face band shirt. It definitely screams ’90s to me and of course any excuse to go ’90s grunge is a good one to me.

What to Wear – The San Diego Comic-Con 2017 Edition

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!!
