You may have been hearing a lot of buzz around “everyday cosplay” and “Disney bounding” lately and wondered what that was. To explain, this is basically a casual take on cosplay where your outfit isn’t a full on costume, but something inspired by that character in either the color scheme, style of clothing, or even a certain prop. Even clothing companies have jumped on this idea by printing what looks like a costume onto a shirt, hoodie, or maybe leggings. Remember those giant T-shirts that had hot bikini bodies printed on them back in the ’80s and ’90s? Well, you get the idea. And then there’s also “Disney bounding” where you are essentially dressing up like Disney characters, but not in full costume. For example, Continue reading
When Her Universe announced the pre-order for their new Avengers line for Hot Topic, I immediately knew I had better grab these fast. Not only were they incredibly designed, but they were also designed in collaboration with last year’s winners of the SDCC 2014 Her Universe Fashion Show! I love the retro pin-up style of the pieces and not only do they look amazing, but they have exceptional quality for the prices. I immediately fell in love with this Loki dress as I have always had a fondness for retro sweetheart halter style dresses. The green and black keep it pretty classy and the gold design on the bottom is a nice subtle nod to everyone’s favorite Marvel villain. And on that note, I wanted to officially share that Continue reading
I know, I know… You’re thinking, “Another Star Wars outfit??” Well, like it or not, right now is a great time to be a Star Wars fan. Not only is there so much excitement over The Force Awakens, but Celebration VII just happened and that came with so much cool merchandise, including some very awesome new apparel from one of my favorite geeky brands, We Love Fine. I love how fashion forward they are and that especially shows in some of the new stuff that came out at Celebration. I was dying over this Luke Skywalker Landspeeder tank at their booth, but wasn’t able to get my hands on one until they got released online the other week. It’s definitely a little bit of a throwback to the ’80s (you know I love the ’80s) and this time I decided to pair it with a pair of white skinny jeans and big hoop earrings to compliment the era.
Everyone has a bad day once in a while and it’s days like today that I rely on fashion to perk up my mood. This X-Wing tank by Fifth Sun easily did the trick with it’s fun rainbow graphics and slight ’80s throwback. I decided to go even more ’80s by pairing it with this denim vest, which I am loving as an alternative piece to wear with my geeky tees. And don’t forget you can get your own X-Wing tank by entering my giveaway with Fifth Sun on Instagram! 3 lucky people will get their choice of tee or tank from Fifth Sun, so don’t miss out!
Star Wars Celebration just kicked off and even though I am dying to be there, I’m just going to have to be there in spirit. I mean, how awesome was it that they live streamed the Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel with JJ Abrams and showed us the new trailer? I don’t know about you, but watching the panel, seeing more on set photos, being introduced to BB8 and then seeing the second trailer just made my day literally brought tears to my eyes. I’ve actually been pretty torn about this movie since I’m one of those fans who is trying to avoid spoilers, but at the same time, is dying to see more, but after seeing the new trailer, I can’t wait. How awesome was that intro scene? And what is that chrome Stormtrooper?? So many questions, yet I don’t want any answers. Anyhow, Star Wars Celebration is kicking off, spring is almost here, and there’s just a lot of Star Wars love all around this week! I can’t wait!
I’m on a roll with fun skirts and it’s been much too long since I’ve worn this Star Wars skirt, made out of the original vintage bed sheets! I made this skirt a few years back and it’s been gathering way too much dust! Although there are quite a few licensed Star Wars fabrics, this is still by far my favorite one since it looks more like a painting and a little less “cartoony”. However, being a very eye-catching print, I still wanted to keep this outfit balanced and not wear anything too busy on top. Paired with a cute crop sweater or even a basic white tee, it’s all about bringing balance to the force. :D
Despite the outfits that I post on this blog, I don’t always like to wear super eye-catching things on a regular basis. Take for example this fabulous “Kaboom” skirt from Top Shop. Since I’ve had it, I’ve probably only worn it 3-4 times (sadly decreasing the “value per wear”, but that’s another story). I also have to admit that I have not even mustered up the courage to wear this to work yet! Maybe one day, but for now, this will have to be one of those inspirational pieces that I’m saving for a braver day.
