Just a quick heads up that this is the last week that you can order prints! They are just about ready to be printed and I hope to send them out soon. This is the first time I’m doing this so I hope I get all the orders right! ;) And if you don’t want a print, but still want to support the cause, I also have a fundraiser page set up here. Anything helps and thanks so much for your support! <3
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!
*UPDATE! Thanks to your votes, the store is now open here! Order away!!*
If there’s anything “good” about having cancer or being sick, it’s realizing how many people care about you. Just when I was feeling very accepting of my situation and feeling like I was ready to share my situation with the internets, in came a flood of responses to my last post. Many of you shared your own personal struggles with your health as well as experiences caring for loved ones and I thank you for that. I was and still am overwhelmed with all the kindness and love that has come my way. Many of your responses brought tears to my eyes and I can’t help but feel so inspired and encouraged through all of the kind words from friends and family (that includes you!).
With that, I started thinking about this month being Breast Cancer Awareness month and how that might apply to me. Continue reading →
If you’ve ever been to a comic convention, then you’ll know that corsets and geeky girls seem to go hand in hand. I’m not sure if it’s the love of cosplay, steampunk, or pirate obsessions, but if we’re talking about geek girl wardrobe staples, a corset is not a bad thing to own. I never thought I would be able to wear one as a “casual” accessory until I found this one from The Violet Vixen. I may have been summoning my inner pirate here, but I just though it looked great with this striped tee and flared skirt! Also, I couldn’t help but go for a more steampunk style since I loved the straps, buckles, zipper, and well, everything about it. They have so many styles that it’s so hard to choose from! Be sure to check out their shop as well as this interview I did with them!
We’ve all heard the phrase “When life gives you lemons… you make lemonade!” Well, for me, I’ve been given some lemons lately. Without getting too much into it, I’ve hit a few bumps in the road with health stuff and even though I was pretty down for a few days, I decided to pick myself back up and do something fun to get my mind off things. So when life gives me lemons, I cosplay! Parappa the Rappa is still one of my favorite games from the Playstation 1 and also one of the few games that I haven’t been able to beat! >:( Continue reading →
I’m excited to announce that I have not one, but TWO s tores opening! I’ve always wanted to try commissioning cosplay projects and recently started getting a ton of interest in making Han Solo shirts. Well, I’ve decided to finally try it out and you can now order your own custom Han Solo shirt here! Hopefully there’s more products to come in the future, but I would love to hear what kind of things you would like to see there!
Also, if you’ve ever been curious about my closet, you can now purchase items seen on my blog in The Stylish Geek’s Closet! To be honest, I’m a little nervous about running TWO stores, but we’ll see how it goes!
