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!
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!
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.
