An all ages geek/nerd fashion, mash-up cosplay, bounding and lifestyle blog with an emphasis on body positivity and confidence.
Kim Henderson McAndrew is a mom, legal assistant for Discovery networks, author of the book "In Plain Sight: Using Everyday Cosplay To Express Your Inner Superhero" and a huge nerd. She loves nerdy fashion, everyday cosplay in particular. Her main fandoms are Marvel, Star Wars and Disney.
Our latest outfit of the day is to help you get ready for the spooky season.
This skirt from Torrid features the classic movie monsters of Universal Studios. I love how companies have been re-embracing the classics when it comes to Halloween. I grew up watching these movies on “Sci Fi Theatre” back in Arkansas in the olden times, and I absolutely love them.
The skirt is made from scuba, so it holds it shape nicely while being stretchy and comfy. The sweatshirt is from Target. I absolutely love the puffy sleeves on this shirt. It gives this very casual shirt a very fancy feel to it. Click on the links to buy.
Just as an fyi, Unique Vintage also has classic movie monster wear for this Halloween.
Both sites run very, VERY small. So, please check the sizing with your body measurements and not what size you usually wear. Example is that both of these dresses I got in a 5xl. I usually wear a 2xl or 3xl, depending on the brand.
This front-knot style dress and shirts have been spotted everywhere lately! In addition to being on-trend, this dress is a comfy t-shirt dress that can be dressed up and down, depending on the function you are wearing it to.
I also love the color! However, if you don’t like the color, it is available in 12 different colors!
When the book, “In Plain Sight” was published, I sent copies to various YouTubers and bloggers I admire. I was thrilled to see that Ordinary Adventures unboxed the book and really like it!
Please enjoy the whole video, but In Plain Sight content starts at 23:30.
Ordinary Adventures is a great YouTube channel to follow for fun nerdy content. I have been enjoying their videos for a year or so, and I highly recommend. They have positive and celebratory videos for tons of different fandoms. Click here to go directly to their channel.
As most of you have figured out, we are holding off on new posts while the COVID pandemic is still in full-on mode. We know that we provide an escape, but right now we both feel that posting about adventures and such is not tasteful. We originally planned to start up again in July, but the COVID cases have taken a large upturn here in the USA. So, we are going to hold for now on new posts, but WE WILL BE BACK!
As soon as cases finally begin to decline in the USA, we will begin posting again.
In the meantime, I do have a new book that is soon to publish! It is based on articles written here on this site and acts as a workbook/organizational tool for your wardrobe and cosplays. I will post when it is available for sale.
We are sending everyone good thoughts at this difficult time. Please stay safe and healthy and wear those masks!
