(Top Left) my heaviest right after chemo and (Right) taken a few weeks ago

It’s always tough to talk about one’s body image regardless of your size. I know the minute I complain about my body, I’m going to hear things like, “Why are you complaining? You’re so thin!” and “Why do you need to eat healthy?” But I always tell people just because I’m thin doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be eating right and exercising. Even as a thin person, I too suffer from body insecurities and have been experiencing this more than ever these past 6 months. Finishing chemo may have seemed like “the end”, but dealing with weight gain, losing all of my eyelashes and most of my eyebrows, and a handful of other physical side effects have not been fun. Contrary to popular belief, many people actually gain weight during chemo due to all the drugs (especially steroids) that they give you and for me, that was definitely one of the most challenging parts to deal with post-treatment, both physically and mentally.  Continue reading

Game of Fashion

Game of Thrones inspired outfit

With Game of Thrones season 6 in full swing and last week’s episode having some “tears of joy” worthy moments, it’s only fitting that today’s post be a fun tribute to the show. I’m not going full on medieval or anything, but I found that when I was putting together this outfit, each piece I chose became more and more themed. For example, I love that this high slit tunic reminds me of Brienne of Tarth or that these leggings could belong in the realm of the Three-eyed-raven. And doesn’t this cuff remind you of our favorite Mother of Dragons?? Anyhow, I’m super excited about this season so far and can’t wait to see what happens! Hopefully more good than bad, but then again you never know with this show… And if you’re itching for more Game of Thrones fashion, check out Valentino’s fall show, which almost looks straight out of the show!

Cosplay Tutorial: Bombshell Batwoman

DC Bombshell Batwoman Cosplay Tutorial

It’s unfortunate that with more complicated cosplays comes less time and as a result, I find myself doing less and less write-ups when it comes to how I made a costume. However, with all the complicated projects I’ve been working on lately, it’s nice to once in a while make something “easy” such as Bombshell Batwoman. This costume took me about 2 days to make and I had a blast wearing it. Read on to see how to make your own version!

Whose Side Are You On?

Captain America Varsity Jacket

With Marvel churning out so many super hero movies these days, I have to admit, it’s been a while since I’ve been this excited to see one. To be honest, I was actually starting to lose interest on the Iron Man, Thor, Avengers, and Captain America fronts. Sad, I know! Hands down, my favorite Marvel movie is still Guardians of the Galaxy, followed by almost anything X-Men (so excited for Age of Apocalypse!!). However, word has been getting around and I’ve been hearing nothing but great things about Captain America: Civil War. Hopefully it lives up to the hype and I can’t wait to see it this weekend! Seeing as I’ve got both sides covered on the fashion front, it’s time to decide – whose side will I be on??

Get Your Bounty on Star Wars Day!

Boba Fett Jacket and Floral Romper

You know what today is… it’s Star Wars Day! Sure, you could celebrate like I am here by wearing your favorite Star Wars item, but with Star Wars practically everywhere these days, you’re bound to find something new to buy or else something fun to do in order to take today to the next level. Lucky for you, I’ve been keeping my eye out for worthy Star Wars events and put a list together just for the occasion. May the 4th be with you!  Continue reading

Lady Ren

Kylo Ren Tank and Leather Skirt

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

Batty for Accessories


I’ve been in the mood for geeky accessories these days and the timing couldn’t be more perfect with Loot Crate’s last bundle of Level Up goodies. In their “versus” crate was this awesome Batman vs. Superman necklace (I’m just wearing the Batman one here) and it couldn’t go better with this floral Batman cap I picked up from Wondercon. Caps have kind of become a staple to me, especially on the weekends when I can dress super casual, so I’m looking forward to growing my collection! Also, be sure to use my code (after the jump) to save 10% on your own geeky clothing crate!
