Hopefully by now you’ve all seen the Rogue One trailer and liked it as much as I did. I can’t wait for this movie to come out, especially because it’s the first standalone movie and not a direct prequel or sequel of any of the other films. It’s pretty crazy to think that there will be a new Star Wars movie out every single year until 2020 and on top of that a new Star Wars Land opening up at Disneyland! And here’s a tip – if you look closely while riding Thunder Mountain, you can actually see some of the construction going on for it! But back to Rogue One.. Continue reading
Today’s look is brought to you all the way from the Ice Kingdom! The Ice King is one of the more interesting characters in Adventure Time and you can’t help but like him and at the same time feel bad for and sometimes grossed out by him. Plus his back story with Marceline just gets me every time. :( This was another fun top I picked up from the We Love Fine booth at SDCC (now available on their website) and I thought they did a great job turning the Ice King and Gunther into a fun Hawaiian print. I’m going from work to weekend in today’s post and honestly love both looks. Which one is your favorite?
SDCC might have been two weeks ago, but it’s definitely still on my mind. It almost feels like it was all a dream – the anticipation leading up to preview night, the anxiety of trying to get those special tickets in order to buy exclusive toys, and the major FOMO of everything on the con floor. I spent numerous years going to SDCC with a couple of friends and sometimes just my husband (boyfriend at the time), but it’s only in the past 2-3 years that I’ve really started to appreciate having like minded friends there with me.

I still can’t believe San Diego Comic-Con is over (yes, I have major con depression and con withdrawal) and I don’t even know where to begin in order to sum up the fun time I had there so let’s start with the obvious – the Her Universe Fashion Show. Obviously I love geek fashion so this is a must-see event for me. I even told some friends that this event is like New York Fashion Week for geeks, am I right? The competition was seriously fierce this year and as someone who participated in the show last year, I know how much incredible detail and work went into every garment that walked down the runway – from every bead, every appliqué, every hand made accessory – even down to the shoes. I know how much blood, sweat, and tears went into every stitch so hats off too all the amazing designers. There’s not much else to say, so on with the photos!
It’s that crazy time of year again where your first world problems consist of things like “My feet hurt from comic-con” or “The food in Hall H is terrible” or maybe “There aren’t enough pokestops around the convention!” This may be my 17th-ish SDCC, but it feels just as new and exciting as the first. Unlike other cons where I might spend most of my time cosplaying, this is the con where my focus is about exclusives, panels, checking out what’s new on the floor, and just having a great time with friends. Of course, there will still be cosplay. With all that’s happened this year, I’m in a very “YOLO” mood these days and decided to finally cosplay a character I have always wanted to be, but never had the guts to – Psylocke. I’ll be wearing the X-Men Apocalypse version, which I love because of the added armor. And with my recent hair cut, I also threw in a last minute Jubilee, roughly based on the Kotobukiya figure, but with some ’80s elements. It’s gonna be a fun time so I hope to see you there!
Today’s post marks an inaugural occasion as I just got my very first Star Trek shirt! I may be a die hard Star Wars fan, but that doesn’t mean I can’t show some love for Star Trek. I actually spent some of my teen years falling in love with the original Star Trek TV show and instead of having teen heartthrob posters on my wall, I had photos of a young Captain Kirk and Spock. <3 Some people may say Star Wars OR Star Trek, but I say both! And with Star Trek Beyond coming out next week, Star Trek’s 50th anniversary, Aliens 30th anniversary, and the new Rogue One trailer that’s coming out any moment now, it’s an awesome time to be a sci-fi fan.
I kind of wish I had gotten this tee at the time I first got my haircut because it’s pretty much the face I’ve been seeing every time someone sees my hair for the first time. I’m definitely getting really used to the cut and nowadays when someone says “OMFG YOU CUT YOUR HAIR!”, I just shrug and say, “Yup!” and then walk away. Heh. Although I’m not the biggest watcher of anime (my favorites are some oldies like Cowboy Bebop and Escaflowne), I thought this shirt from Pimp Chimp Apparel was so adorable, I couldn’t resist. Off the shoulder tops are all the rage right now and I decided this one would be perfect for a little DIY reconstruction. It only took 2 snips to modify this shirt and it was ready to wear on top of this maxi dress! So yeah, next time someone asks me about my hair, I’m just going to point to this shirt. >.<
