With all that’s happened to me these past 6 months or so, it’s crazy to think about what I was doing just one year ago. I was definitely at a high, having just gotten accepted into the Her Universe Fashion Show and I had just started material shopping for my “She is Groot” dress. Finishing that dress was quite a milestone for me and it’s crazy to think how much has happened since then. This past weekend was coincidentally the deadline to submit designs for the 2016 Her Universe Fashion Show and a lot of people have asked me if I submitted another design. Well, the short answer is no, BUT that doesn’t mean that I won’t be making something fun to wear to the show anyways! This week also marks the release of Her Universe’s new Force Awakens collection, Continue reading
I have to admit I was a little disappointed when I found out Wondercon would be at the LA Convention Center this year. No more familiarity, no more big fountain in front, and no more post con trips to Disneyland. However, after spending 3 days at Wondercon, the LA Convention Center really did start to grow on me. True, the exhibit hall was a bit too dim, giving all cosplayers even more reason to stay out in the entrance lobby, but that was a blessing in disguise since it made it a lot easier to cosplay watch, take photos, and catch up with friends! As you know, I had an unintentional Bat-themed cosplay weekend planned and I couldn’t have been happier with how everything turned out.
Wondercon is just around the corner and for those who have had trouble finding me in the past, I’ll try to make this easy for you! Continue reading
Ever since Wondercon went away nearly 4 years ago, the Bay Area has felt a gaping comic con hole in it’s heart that wishes it could be filled. When Silicon Valley Comic Con was announced last year, I wondered if this could be it – could this be the con that would bring balance to the force? Could “the Woz” really bring together the culture of comics and the technology of the Silicon Valley all in one show and attract the right kind of audience? Silicon Valley definitely had a lot of promise – a decent line up of guests, lots of vendors, and a good location. However, like most first time cons, there were some ups and downs.
If you’ve been following me over Facebook, Instagram or even Tumblr, you may have seen the plethora of cosplay progress photos I’ve been posting. I feel like I’ve been doing one of two things in my spare time these days – working out and working on costumes. Maybe I’ve just been in hibernation too long, but it feels like it’s been forever since I made a new costume and WAY too long since I’ve been to a con! Well, this weekend, I’ll finally get a bit of con fix since there’s a new con coming right to my neighborhood – Silicon Valley Comic Con. Continue reading
As a long time Star Wars nut, you can imagine how excited I was when a Refinery29 contacted me for an interview about my favorite topic – Star Wars. They initially wanted to know about my collection of Star Wars stuff, which I was happy to share. Over the past 20 years or so, I have ended up with some pretty strange stuff – from an oozing Jabba the Hutt toy, vintage Star Wars records, and most currently, some amazing Star Wars loafers. Although much of my collection didn’t make the final cut, I wanted to post a few here since as any collector will tell you, they’re pretty proud of their collection. Check out the article here and click to see some of my favorite pieces from my collection!
I can’t believe we are only days away from The Force Awakens, which means Star Wars all week! With the cold weather in full force, I’m so excited for the variety of Star Wars jackets that have been coming out, especially this BB-8 one! I wore this casually last weekend at The Force Awakens pin event in Hollywood and today I’m trying it out a little more dressed up. Get ready for lots of Star Wars this week!!
