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?
You may be thinking, “What’s a men’s blazer doing on a women’s geek fashion blog??”. Well, this is no ordinary blazer. It’s a BATMAN BLAZER!! I’ve been friends with Tony Kim (aka Crazy4ComicCon) for many years now and besides being a super fan of comic con, bringing awareness to multi-ethnic geek culture, and being a panel host extraordinaire, he’s now taking his fandom to even greater heights by starting his own clothing line, appropriately titled “Hero Within“. I have to admit – I had no idea Tony had such a passion for men’s clothing! But then I remembered seeing his Comic-Con Bag Blazer and it all made sense. :) Us geek girls have gotten a lot of love the past few years with more and more geeky women’s clothing so it’s a nice change to finally see some love for geeky menswear too!
Happy November! I just got back from Stan Lee Comic Con (aka Los Angeles Comic Con aka Comikaze) and I’m sad to admit that this may be the end of my cosplay season for the year! My next big con will probably be Wondercon 2017 so until then, I’ll probably be working on my Etsy store orders, organizing my cosplay/craft area and going down the list of sewing projects that I’ve racked up over the years. I have a few fun projects up my sleeve so hopefully those will keep me busy over the next few months. As for Comikaze, I had such a great time this weekend, hung out with some great con friends and of course had a great time cosplaying. Continue reading
We all know that cons can range from super big like SDCC to super small and everything in between. With all the hype over mega comic cons these days, there’s times where I do miss the small cons I used to go to as a kid – where the content was good, the crowds were minimal, and the fans were all there for the same reasons. Well, this Saturday, I’ll have the opportunity to attend one of those small cons as a cosplay guest at the Santa Clara City Library Comic Con! Yes, you heard it right – this is a library comic con and I’m super excited since it will be really kid friendly, has some top notch panels and guests (like Executive Producer Dave Filoni from Avatar, Clone Wars, and Star Wars Rebels!), and did I mention tickets are free?? I’ll be wandering around and catching Pokemon as Honey Lemon, so please come say hi!
Today’s look is brought to you all the way from the Ice Kingdom! The Ice King is one of the more interesting characters in Adventure Time and you can’t help but like him and at the same time feel bad for and sometimes grossed out by him. Plus his back story with Marceline just gets me every time. :( This was another fun top I picked up from the We Love Fine booth at SDCC (now available on their website) and I thought they did a great job turning the Ice King and Gunther into a fun Hawaiian print. I’m going from work to weekend in today’s post and honestly love both looks. Which one is your favorite?
