Can we just take a quick second to talk about some of the awesome geek fashion that has been out lately? Take for example this Batmanga Souvenir Jacket. I admit I was a little unsure about how good the quality seeing as how a lot of con clothing can be a little bit on the cheap side, but I was completely reassured once I saw it in person. Not only was the embroidery fantastic, but the jacket itself (the fabric, the lining, the material) was everything I hoped for. Also, what about all the cool workout gear from Her Universe/Kohls?

Hello! You may have noticed that it’s been a little quiet on the blog front, but I’m back! Believe it or not, I’ve had this blog for almost 5 years and this past month is probably the first time in 5 years that I’ve really taken a break from writing! In fact, I’m sort of taking a break from a lot of things this year to focus on myself and my marriage. I just got back from Hawaii a couple of weeks ago after some much needed R&R and have a couple more fun trips planned this year. Because of that, I won’t be going to as many cons as I typically do (not that I go that much), but it’s starting to look like my next con might just be SDCC! So what does that all mean?
Hopefully everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving and/or is still getting ready for more holiday dinners this weekend (I know I am!). When it comes to holiday dinners, I’ve always felt that you can’t go wrong with a sweater. Whether it be an ugly Christmas sweater, an itchy wool sweater, or even a cardigan, a sweater is always appropriate attire for that family/friends dinner. And this Spider-Gwen sweater couldn’t have arrived at a better time! Continue reading
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
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. >.<
It’s officially summer! I wanted to ring in the start of summer with a fun outfit, wearing one of my favorite comic book tops (although technically a bodysuit). This is also fitting since I’ve been working on my Psylocke cosplay for San Diego Comic-Con, but more to come on that later. I’m definitely excited to be an X-Men and especially a Marvel fan right now with all the upcoming movies going on and especially with James Gunn announcing Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will have a presence at SDCC this year! I haven’t decided if I will be camping out two nights in a row, assuming Game of Thrones is on a Friday again, so I may have to enjoy the panel vicariously through my friends. Only 3 more weeks to go!!
Every year I get asked what I want to do for my birthday and every year, I completely dread that day. I hate the attention, the pressure of having a “great day” and I have never enjoyed being sung to. Usually I go into hiding around this time and thank goodness for Memorial Day because my birthday usually falls over that 3 day period, but this year I decided to really get away from things by spending my bday at Disneyland! With all I have to celebrate, I was feeling incredible grateful to be present, healthy, and I couldn’t wait to just go there and do whatever, eat whatever, and have a good time.
