You’re My Only Hope!

WeLoveFine Princess Leia Dress

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!

Gone Batty

Bat Print Top and Skirt DressUsually 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…

The Force is Greener on the Other Side

Garden Vader Threadless tee and Zara Maxi Skirt

The thing with awesome shirts is that they get worn, get old, and you keep them for a lifetime. When I bought this “Darkside of the Garden” tee a long time ago from a little place online called Threadless, I knew it was one of those shirt designs that I liked enough to keep forever. How can you resist the domesticated Darth Vader architecting the latest Death Star bush? Fast forward over 10 years later and I’m still finding new ways to wear it!

Welcome to October

Easy Halloween CostumesIt’s officially October, which for me means some crazy pumpkin project, lots of candy, and of course costumes. Sadly, I won’t actually be at home this year for Halloween since I will be spending the weekend at COMIKAZE!! More on that later, but in the spirit of October and making homemade costumes, here are some of my many tutorials that I’ve written up over the past 7 years or so that will hopefully inspire some easy Halloween costume ideas. So if you’re looking for ideas or not sure how to get started on a costume, definitely check these out!

Next Stop, Star Tours

Star Tours Ladies Tee with Skirt

When Disneyland announced that they were renovating Star Tours a few years ago, I knew from that point on that Star Tours was going to be one of my new favorite rides at the park. Even though I can’t ride it over and over like I would like to due to my motion sickness, I’ve still been able to ride it enough to experience all of my favorite Star Wars destinations. I nabbed this shirt shortly after the ride opened and although I love the art and design of the shirt, it is definitely one of my more challenging geeky shirts to wear as it looks more like a “souvenir/vacation” shirt than something I could wear out. However, instead of only wearing this at Disneyland or on weekends, I took it upon myself to try to dress this one up a little. Adding this gold collar necklace is not only a great accessory, but can easily make any T-shirt a little more dressy. And with a skirt and some heels, this easily goes from casual weekend wear to a fun night out!

Phasing Through

Brandy Melville Moon Phase Tank and Skirt

Summer always goes by way too fast. Luckily, living in the warmer part of the Bay Area allows me to wear tanks and skirts even up till October sometimes! Brandy Melville may be every teeny bopper’s dream store, but I’m a fan due to it’s ’90s-meets-modern-day style. I’m especially a fan of their graphic tops, skirts, and basic tees that are super soft and comfy. You might say this moon phase tank totally has me “phasing” out of summer. :D
