Caught in a Web (of Cosplay)

Spider-Man Tank top and peplum skirt

Happy Friday! It’s been a long week and I’m so ready for some fun in the sun. Well, that is if I can drag myself away from cosplay making to get some sun! San Diego Comic Con is only 4 weeks away, which means crunch time for cosplay making. It’s definitely a challenge to stay motivated, not procrastinate, and not feel discouraged when you face difficulties. To anyone else out there working hard on their cosplays – best of luck and as I would say in Chinese, “jia you!”, which literally means “add oil”, but translates to something like “Let’s GO!”.

The Feminine Side of Star Wars

Star Wars Crop Top and BCBGMaxazria Skirt

Star Wars has no problem making headlines, but when Kirsten Dunst recently appeared at the Met Gala in the Rodarte Death Star gown, it definitely made people rethink their view on Star Wars, geek fashion, and that maybe geek really is the new “chic”. Although the Rodarte Star Wars gowns aren’t exactly my favorites in terms of the dress style and even how the graphics are used, the fact that geek fashion is getting so much attention is still a plus in my book. So what do you guys think of all this Star Wars fashion and celebs wearing them? With all this Star Wars on the mind, today’s outfit is a more feminine take on something that can easily be more masculine. Get ready for lots of pink!

Stormy Days

Stormtrooper tank top and mini skirt outfit

I always get some sort of con-withdrawal after attending a big con, especially since this year’s Wondercon was so much fun. With me missing the con scene and being in cosplay, I decided today’s outfit should be something a little more “costume-y”. With this Stormtrooper tank mimicking the boxy structure of a Stormtrooper uniform, I wanted to pair it with something more structured or geometric. And this peplum skirt is definitely “the skirt I’m looking for…”

Fully Operational Outfit

Black Milk Star Wars Death Star Dress Outfit

As a fan of Black Milk’s entire line of Star Wars items, I’ve had this Death Star dress for a while now. And I’m not sure about you, but I’ve always found it a little challenging when it comes to how to wear something so eye-catching outside of the convention halls and into the “normal” public. With the way the dresses are shown on the Black Milk site, it’s hard to get ideas on what to wear with them. Well, I took that as a challenge and here’s what I came up with. What do you wear with your BM dresses? Comment below and share your favorite things to wear with BM stuff!

Fun & Flirty in Star Wars

Star Wars Crop top and floral skirt outfit

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, I decided today’s outfit had to be a bit fun and flirty! I’m not really one to show much skin, but I suddenly didn’t seem to care when I saw this amazing R2-D2 centered crop top. And as for the flirty part, you can’t go wrong with a floral skirt, especially one with a little bit of poof underneath.  Hope your v-day is filled with love!

My Inner Mary Jane

Marvel spiderman sweatshirt outfit

I’ve had my fair share of dressy posts in this blog, but once in a while I just have to throw on a comfy sweatshirt (like this Spider-Man one), basic jeans, and Converse sneakers. I think every nerd needs their Chuck Taylors (which is perfect timing since I’m in the middle of a Chuck marathon). And if you’re wondering what’s going on with the pose in the above photo? Hopefully you might recognize it as a little mini tribute to one of my favorite comic book artists, J. Scott Campbell, and his amazing Mary Jane statue that came out this month!

Asteroids meets Star Wars in Basic Blacks and Whites

Super7 Star Wars Asteroids Shirt

First of all, I have to give a huge THANKS to the folks who have been coming to my blog ever since this cross dressing couples shot of my Han Solo cosplay made it’s way around the internet. I really did not think people would enjoy this cosplay as much as they did, but the reception has been great and I’m truly flattered.

Going to comic con and coming back to real life is always a difficult transition. You go from this place of sensory overload, being star struck, and being surrounded by people dressed in costumes, back to normal life and honestly… it just seems boring! I’m sure many people probably experience the same high that I’m talking about and it’s almost like we’re trying to hold on to that experience as long as we can. I think that’s probably what I’ve been doing this week by wearing one of my new favorite shirts to the office. This Super7 shirt that I got at their booth at SDCC is basically Asteroids meets Star Wars. I love the little easter eggs in this shirt – from the 1138 “score” and the Tie Bomber, to the Space Slug. Talk about mixing the best of both worlds! And since this is such a fun arcade shirt, I wanted these pictures to reflect that so… enjoy!
