Red 5… Standing By

Her Universe X-Wing Embroidered Cardigan Sweater with 1138 Circle SkirtI wore my Warriors T-shirt to work yesterday (Go Warriors!) and someone said to me, “Wow! No Star Wars or comic shirt today?”. I was a bit surprised and thought, “Wow, do I really wear that much geeky stuff?” Don’t get me wrong – I definitely have a lot of geeky shirts, but I do wear non-geeky stuff too! Sometimes a girl needs a good blouse or dress, you know? Which also got me into thinking how unavailable “nice” geeky clothing is for women who do want more than just a T-shirt. Even with the growth of geeky clothing, it’s still pretty rare to find professional looking geeky pieces.  Continue reading

Party On

Marvel X-Men bodysuit with Hot Pink Scuba Skirt Outfit

It’s sadly that time of year where I get another year older and hopefully another year wiser. Sigh! I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been one of those people who likes birthdays. It’s partially just the weird attention, followed by unsettling expectations, and of course just getting older. However, just like the saying goes – “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have”, I also sometimes think that you should dress for the way you want to feel, not the way you actually feel. This hot pink scuba skirt is definitely helping and will for sure help me get my party on this weekend – even if it is reluctantly!

Celebrating Star Wars

Junk Food Clothing Star Wars Tank with Quilted Floral skirt

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!

Casual Lady Vader

Junk Food Vader tee with hi-low skirtEven when I’m not dressed up as Lady Vader, sometimes I still feel like I’m channeling my inner Vader. I actually wore this outfit the other day to work and someone commented that my skirt looked like a cape. That may sound a little strange, but it actually felt like the perfect compliment considering Vader’s cape is a big part of his dark and looming presence. Even though this skirt is far from terrifying, maybe it’s enough to bring you to the dark side? :D

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…”
