Thank you everyone who shared, commented, and took my poll! Everyone has been super supportive through all of this and I’m happy to announce that my cosplay print store is officially OPEN! I spent all weekend researching and figuring out how exactly to run one of these things and I’m super excited to get started! Again, all proceeds will be going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. While I do also believe in supporting early detection, I wanted the main purpose of my donation to be research. Considering 1 in 8 women will get it, don’t you think it’s about time we found a cure?
Prints will only be available to order for 2 weeks only so order soon! And if you want to help the cause, but maybe don’t want a print, feel free to donate directly to my fundraiser. Thank you everyone for the support!
So of course you can’t go to Comic-Con without buying some cool stuff. I may have way too many geeky tees, but that doesn’t stop me from buying more! The Tokidoki and Peanuts brands have always been popular items at SDCC, so it just makes sense that a Tokidoki x Peanuts crossover was bound to happen! This isn’t the first time they’ve collaborated, however, this is the first time that I’ve actually been able to get something since they are always sold out! I’ve been really interested in clothes made of neoprene lately (basically scuba fabric if you think about it) and love the feel and structure that the fabric creates. This neoprene “mesh” adds a whole new dimension to the look and I thought it would be the perfect compliment to Tokidoki’s “alternative” style!
In my expert opinion, it takes about 8 days to get over SDCC. You spend about 2-3 days being dead tired and pretty depressed. You’ve not only walked 10 times more than you normally do, but you’ve left this place of stimulation overload and gone back to sitting at a desk trying to figure out how to do your job again. This is also known as “con depression”. Continue reading →
If you really think about it, I’ve spent the past 2 months preparing for a one minute walk down the runway. It’s crazy, but true. Now that the Her Universe Fashion Show is over, I can finally relax and post the progress photos that I’ve been dying to share these past couple of months! As you know, I absolutely loved Guardians of the Galaxy – as seen in my handmade baby Groot statue and my Rocket Raccoon cosplay. So when I saw the news about the Her Universe Fashion Show submissions, the first thing that came to mind was a Groot gown. Continue reading →
Today I’m partnering with Lindz and Victoria (Scruffy Rebel), the stylish ladies at Set To Stunning for a special San Diego Comic-Con post! They’re doing a special series on being “SDCChic” and today’s outfits are styled by me. There’s day to night outfits as well as everyday cosplay so check them out here!
It’s always a little extra stressful, but exciting this time of year, as SDCC is right around the corner! There’s the anticipation of getting into panels (Hall H anyone?), buying exclusives, finishing up cosplay or in my case, finishing up my garment for the Her Universe Geek Couture Fashion Show. And on top of all of that, I still have to figure out what to wear! If you’re a little stuck like I always am on what to wear, my friends at Set To Stunning are doing a special series on being “SDCChic” so check it out! While I’m still figuring out what to wear myself to SDCC, I wanted to post another “everyday cosplay” look that you may have seen me wear on my Nerdist episode the other month. Since I had spent quite some time photoshopping Honey Lemon’s periodic table to make her bag, I figured why not also print it onto a shirt? I’ve actually gotten a few requests to maybe sell this tank top, so stay tuned! There may be a “stylish geek” Etsy store coming soon! With the rise in geek fashion, I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot of everyday cosplay at SDCC this year. What are YOU going to wear?
EEEEEK!! I’m especially excited today because I can finally share what I was filming with Nerdist the other week! I was contacted a while ago to be in their new web series – Totino’s Adventure People and am so incredibly honored to be in their segment on geek fashion. It was such a pleasure working with them and on top of that, I had the perfect excuse to do more shopping. Hehe. I’m still kinda of freaking out inside that it’s finally out and part of me just wants to crawl into my turtle shell and hide! Anyhow, check out the episode here and let me know what you think!
