Outfit of the Day: Godzilla Graphic Tee

Share This Post

Our latest outfit of the day celebrates the King of the Monsters, Godzilla, and his new film, “Godzilla v. Kong”.

Obviously, we are 100% team ‘Zilla over here, but we do love Kong as well. I just hope those boys learn to get along already 🙂

Enough about that, on to the fashion!

I paired my favorite Goldzilla tee (from Torrid about a decade ago) with this cute velvet skirt from Hot Topic. I added a hot pink stretch belt from Amazon and knotted the tee to define my waist.

Then I paired this with some Snag tights in opaque black and my favorite tall boots from Forever 21.

You can create this look with any of your favorite graphic tees. It can be a nice change from the usual tee and jeans or leggings look.

New Liquid Lipsticks!

Share This Post

I’m proud and pleased to launch the first two products in my cosmetics line.

I have two beautiful liquid lipsticks. One in a classic red. I named the shade, “Darcy”.

The other is a bubblegum pink. The shade assigned by the manufacturer, MS Make-up, is number 13, so I named this shade “Agent 13”.

Both lipsticks are a velvety liquid formula, with a matte finish. Both are mask-proof and transfer-proof. They aren’t drying or sticky. I have been road-testing them for a while, and they are fantastic.

These essential shades go well with any bounding or cosplay builds.

If you guys like them, I’ll offer more shades in the future. Click here to buy.

I have a special bundle of both shades as well.

Happy shopping!

Fashion Alert- WandaVision Make-up from Ulta

Share This Post

WandaVision the series might be done, but not the fantastic products!

I’ve got lots of Wanda goodies coming up, the first of which is a new make-up line from Ulta.

There are a pile of goodies to choose from. I chose the brush set, make-up bag and eyeshadow palettes.

The Brush Set

These brushes are fantastic! Besides being very lush and gorgeous to look at, they are great brushes. I especially love the flat-ended highlighter brush. Made my highlighter go on perfectly. The case comes with the set and it is a great size to tuck into your bag for on-the-go touch-ups.

The Make-Up Bag

I absolutely love this make-up bag! Pretty much my favorite from the collection. It is a perfect size to pack your stuff for a trip. The Wanda logo is beautiful, and I’m in love with the color.

The Eyeshadow Palettes

Lastly, I got the eyeshadow palettes from the “vault”. There is a small palette for the 50’s and 60’s, the 70’s and the 80’s and 90’s. The colors are super pigmented and great to mix and match to create your own look. There was a little fall-out in the pan and on my face, so put down some powder for that. Other than that, for $20, you can’t go wrong with them. The colors are really nice and wearable for day and/or night.

Buy your own pieces from Ulta here. Happy shopping!

A Trip to Knott’s Boysenberry Festival

Share This Post

With restrictions easing everywhere, most theme parks have started or in the case of Knott’s, restarted, their food festival programs. These “Taste of…” events are a lot of fun and a safe way to get out of the house for a bit.

Besides that, a chance to enjoy some great food!

I’ve never been to the Knott’s Boysenberry Festival before, but I can say that I will never miss one again. The food was amazing, honestly, beyond amazing. I’m no foodie, but I had such an amazing time!

Everything was outside and no rides operating, but the Ghost Town residents of Calico were socially distant and out and about to interact with the guests. There were also some Peanuts characters available for socially distant, but still great, photos.

There may be some tickets still available here. If you can go, I highly recommend it.

Now, for the wardrobe. I went with a nice springtime 50’s look from Rosegal. I added purple accessories, cause, boysenberries, from Amazon.

Click on these links to buy the dress, the beret, the belt and the petticoat. Pins are from Wish. I also have some great enamel pins available in the store. Just click here. Shoes are an old DIY on this blog. Click here to revisit.

Happy Shopping!

Product Launch: InPlainSight.style Sunglasses

Share This Post

Sunglasses are a great way to accessorize any outfit. There are so many types and shapes of sunglasses, but what are the wardrobe staples that any nerd should have when building a bound or everyday cosplay?

Cat Eye

Cat The first shape is the cat eye. This is the shape I prefer, and I feel looks good on any shaped face. Cat eye shaped sunglasses are a great addition to any vintage, retro, pin-up or rockabilly look that you are building.

I am proud to launch a new product in the InPlainSight.style store, cat eye sunglasses. These sunglasses are a cat eye shape with a black matte finish. They feature the ducky logo in white.

I’ve been road-testing these for a couple of months now. The logo has proven to be water and sweat proof, non-fading and it is staying put.

Our sunglasses are only $14.95 and available today in the store. Just click the shop tab at the top of the page or click here.

But, what if you aren’t building a 50’s-era look? Or, if you want a more traditionally masculine frame? Well, here are a couple of additional shapes for sunglasses that work for any gender identity and in additional eras.

Wayfair Style

This shape is truly timeless. I’ve also found that they look great with any shape face. The added bonus is that you can find them in any color or print you can imagine. Click here to shop some.

Aviator Style

This shape is also timeless. Invented for aviators (hence, the name), they can be a little masculine-looking, but they look great on any gender identity or face shape. The color choice is a bit limited, but they are very lightweight and comfy. Click here for some nice ones.

Regardless of what shape you go with, you cannot go wrong with a pair of sunglasses to accessorize your new look. I hope that you’ll give our InPlainSight.style shades a try!

Happy Shopping!

Wardrobe Solutions: Tube/Pencil Skirt

Share This Post

Our latest outfit of the day also features a great wardrobe solution- the tube or pencil skirt.

This skirt can be an excellent addition to your wardrobe as a staple. How to wear it?

Well, the new trend of cropped shirts is a great way to wear this skirt. As you can see from the pictures, I took an awesome graphic tee from Forever 21 Plus and paired it with a tube skirt, also from Forever 21 Plus.

I have a couple of tees that I purchased recently that are cropped. While I like the fit, I also don’t really like to bare my midriff. This skirt is super high-waisted, so that solves the problem nicely.

This skirt is a staple of both rockabilly looks as well as 80’s inspired looks.

Click on links above to shop this look.

The sunglasses are coming to the store this Thursday, the 25th! These shades are a great cat-eye shape with a matte finish and feature our ducky logo. I’ve been road-testing these for the past couple months and the logo has proven to be water/sweat proof, has not faded at all and has stayed put.

Get your own pair this Thursday for only $14.95! Just click on the shop link at the top of the page.

Happy Shopping!

Thrifting Trip and Outfit of the Day

Share This Post

For the kiddo’s (well, he’s 15, so not REALLY a kiddo), birthday, I took him on a thrifting trip to King Richard’s Antiques in Whittier, CA. Whittier is east of downtown LA.

King Richard’s is three floors of amazing finds, and we had an amazing time.

Benji got a new denim jacket and some other chotkes.

For our trip, my outfit of the day is from Hot Topic. I love this Tarot Card dress so much!

Like most Hot Topic pieces, it is size-inclusive and super comfy and a great print.

My belt is from Torrid. The boots are from Forever 21. Click on links to buy.

Did You Know We Have a Store?!

Share This Post

You probably do know we have a store, but we have a store.

I just wanted to give you a head’s up about it just in case you weren’t aware.

The InPlainSight.style store is where you can get a copy of the book, “In Plain Sight”, which is the ultimate workbook for cosplay, bounds, nerdy looks and everyday cosplays of all fandoms.

I also have some enamel pins. I designed one pin for the accessory pack (also available in the store), and I now have inspiration to design more. So far, there are two- the ducky logo and gelatinous cube pin.

I’ve also put the ducky logo on some cute berets. We have low stock on these pale pink berets, so grab one today. More colors coming in the Fall.

You can reach the store at the top of this page by clicking the “shop” icon.

Enjoy!

Outfit of the Day: Star Wars Cakeworthy Dresses

Share This Post

Our latest outfit of the day, or should I say, outfits of the day, are from Cakeworthy.

Cakeworthy is a cute brand that makes size-inclusive dresses for nerds from all fandoms.

They are sold on their website as well as ShopDisney.

Our first dress is a Grogu print. I posed with my own Grogu. He’s become my travel buddy as of late.

The next dress is a Star Wars icon print. Both dresses are not only super cute, but super comfy. Click on the links above to buy your own.

Please note that they do run a little small, so even though they have stretch, I’d recommend going a size up.

Happy Shopping!
