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!
Call me old or call me uncool, but I’m completely not in tune with the music scene. I guess at some point in your adult life, you stop listening to new music, start saying stuff like “I can’t believe kids are listening to this stuff” and stick to music you listened to when you were younger. All things considered, I still somehow knew (thanks to social media) that Coachella was happening this past weekend. My friends have told me that Coachella is like the San Diego Comic Con of music – a huge festival, lots of exhibitors, and just like how people make the craziest costumes for SDCC, so is the fashion scene of Coachella.

It’s obvious that I love clothes, but I really love clothes that awaken a sense of nostalgia or emotions. So when I first saw this shirt, I was immediately taken back to the ’90s à la Saved by the Bell. For some reason, it reminded me of what a stereotypical geek might have worn in the ’90s and when I thought about it even more, I realized why! This was basically a Screech shirt! Ok, so maybe it’s not as crazy as something Screech might have worn, but I loved the patterns enough to pair it with this tweed skirt (one with suspenders no less!). We geeks may not have been cool back then, but we sure got style now!
No matter how many cons I have been to, I still never get tired of roaming the exhibit floor and checking out new booths. Wondercon had some great independent booths and as a huge Disney nerd, I was immediately drawn to Whosits and Whatsits. Yes, they have an awesome store name and yes, they have amazingly cute Disney inspired shirts! Robin Hood was actually one of my favorite Disney cartoons growing up and I have to admit I had a tiny crush on him too (can you have a crush on a fox?). I love the cleverness of this tee, especially the reference to the “oo-de-lally” song, which will now be stuck in my head all day. So if you’re a fan of this type of stuff like I am, be sure to keep an eye on their store as I’m sure they’ll be coming out with even more cool stuff in the future!
Given that corgi bodies are so strangely proportioned, I’ve always thought there was a need to make custom clothes for corgis. Well, I recently got the perfect chance to do so with Tee Fury and their “Pup Culture” tee collection. I chose one of their awesome corgi designs and converted it to fit my extra long, short legged girl, Daisy. Head over to their blog to check out my step by step tutorial for making your own doggie tee! I love how silly we look together and never thought I would have so much fun wearing matching outfits. Of course you can do this with any tee, but if you want one of their adorable pup ones, today is actually the last day to grab one, so hurry!
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
