Ok, let me be the first to admit that I don’t regularly play Overwatch. However, I did play it for about 6 hours and know that almost every character is like a cosplayer’s dream! D.Va is definitely one of those characters that’s so cute and easy fall in love with (personally I liked playing her and Black Widow), so when my friend at Cake Shop Couture came out with these amazing D.Va jackets, I knew I had to have one. I love the whole high school varsity team look and love everything about this jacket from the color to the bunny patch. If you’re looking for a last minute casual Halloween look, maybe this is the one for you! Awww yeah! Continue reading →
With Halloween only one week away, I’m starting to feel like I’m behind in all my Halloween activities! I haven’t carved my pumpkin, haven’t put up any decorations, and definitely have not had enough pumpkin spiced treats. But at least I have one thing ready – something orange and black! I’ve been on a ’90s fashion kick lately and have especially been into Asian inspired clothing and prints so this dress was practically calling to me. Sure, this dress may not be meant for Halloween, but it sure would go well with some zombie or vampire makeup, don’t you think?
When I first became obsessed with Star Wars, I had exactly one friend who was also a fan. Finding other Star Wars fans felt so rare that it was like hitting the jackpot whenever I met another person who shared my love – to the point that I even started a Star Wars club in high school! As I grew older and Star Wars became more and more mainstream, I’m happy to say that now I have lots of friends who like Star wars – probably more who do than don’t to be honest. And thanks to those friends, this past Friday I got to head up to Lucasfilm in SF to watch the first 3 episodes of Star Wars Rebels season 4! I never thought I would be so lucky and while I’m super excited about this season, I’m also really grateful for great friends and better yet, great Star Wars friends. Today I’m celebrating the season 4 premier with one of my new favorite Star Wars tees – this concept art of the Ahsoka and Vader duel, drawn by the awesome Dave Filoni! It’s a 3 donut day for sure!
Have you ever looked in the mirror and realized that you’re unintentionally cosplaying? Well, the other day I had one of those moments. I was wearing my favorite striped dress and decided I needed a light jacket to wear over it. Fall is all about layering so I put on an army shirt with a light hoodie underneath. I was halfway through my day when I suddenly realized who I resembled – Ramona Flowers. Granted, Ramona Flowers has SO many looks in not only the comic and the movie, but something about my outfit totally reminded me of her or even a version of a cosplay that I had seen before. Perhaps it was a combination of the blue hair, the military shirt over a hoodie, the stripes, or the stars on my bag, but I’m sure deep down I was ready to save the world.
Happy October!! It’s officially time for pumpkin flavored treats, ghoulish attire, and of course costumes! But hey, it’s not like I really need an excuse for any of those things the rest of the year, right? Not only do I love all the fun stuff that goes on during this time of year, but I also love the fact that Halloween themed fabrics and clothes are so readily available! I just picked up this adorably fun top from Modcloth and I don’t think I’ve never seen a skull look any cuter than on the collar of this top. Be sure to check out all the other great spooktacular items on their site and stock up while you can!
I’ve always been fascinated with Japanese culture ever since I can remember – from cosplay to lolita fashion, the Harajuku to Shibuya districts, Japanese toys and goodies, and of course all things cute. One of my first obsessions with Japanese culture came from Sailor Moon. I remember it clearly – my parents had gone on a trip to Japan and my dad brought me back one of these book “guides” to Sailor Moon when it must have been on TV in Japan. I had never even watched or heard of this show, but I poured over the material inside the book like I was studying it. Inside was all sorts of cool artwork, screenshots from TV episodes, character descriptions, and basically everything you wanted to know about that season. Of course I couldn’t read a single word of it because it was in Japanese, but regardless, Continue reading →
My posts may always seem like sunshine and rainbows, but I assure you that it’s not always that way. The last couple of weeks have been a bit rough to say the least – multiple doctor appointments plus some annual exams to make sure I’m still in remission, which definitely put me on an emotional roller coaster. Surviving cancer is a triumphant thing, but people often forget once you’ve survived, it’s never really the end. It’s really just a journey where often times the first couple years are still filled with doctor appointments, blood draws, and constant check ups. You think a lot about the percentages, making it to your yearly milestone, and worries about things that may potentially cause a recurrence. I still have my days where I feel sorry for myself and wish my life wasn’t the way it is, but I also have days where I feel great and just want to be a rainbow. Continue reading →
