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!

Going to a convention with nothing to wear

Comic Fest Outfit - Superman shirt and Wonder Woman socks

So you’re going to a comic convention and don’t have a cosplay. What’s a girl to do? Grab your [insert comic, game, movie theme here] shirt, throw on some shorts, long socks, and a pair of converses and you have an outfit. That’s exactly what I did. This weekend was the Big Wow Comic Fest and I found myself with no time to make a cosplay. And instead of throwing on my typical Star Wars shirt, i decided to mix it up!

Wearing Dresses with Sneakers

Ever since the “Stingray incident” from my trip to San Diego Comic Con, I’ve been having issues with my foot. And last week my doc recommended that I wear sneakers at least for 1 week to see if my foot felt better. Well, I did, but at the same time I had to make my outfit revolve around wearing sneakers. For the first few days, I wore running shoe style sneakers w/wide leg jeans, but as the week got hotter and I got tired of dressing super casual, I migrated to my Converses (yes, less support, but I swear my foot was getting better!). And as you know, I do like my dresses, so one of the challenges I faced was how to wear sneakers with dresses. Here’s what I came up with.
