Catch this video of our Halloween decor at the LA Sanctum!
I recently got into cottagecore (once I realized that it is just a small step from goth). I really love the comfort and flowiness of it.
But, as a plus-size woman, how do you wear this without it looking too tent-like?
Well, the key is the accessories. I have three looks here that are a goth/cottagecore, but with accessories, I have drawn the eye away from the more voluminous areas so people take in the whole look. That way it doesn’t look just “baggy”.
Now, to the dresses. The one below is from Target.
This one is from Walmart, yep, Walmart.
And, this last one is from Amazon.
All three are affordable, so you can create a micro-wardrobe of cottagecore in no time! Perfect for Fall and the spooky season to come!
Hello fashion nerds! I am super excited to add to my creative portfolio with a virtual store at cowcow.com!
So far, I have three designs on the site that you can put on anything, and I mean anything (I made them available on all products, so no, really, everything!)
First up is my Witch Goth Pastel print:
Here is a screen-shot of a dress in the print:
Next up is my 50s print:
Here is a screen-shot of a dress in that print:
Lastly, I have my Friggin Bats pattern:
Here is a screen-shot of a dress in that pattern:
However, you are not limited to just dresses and girly-style clothing. They print on demand home goods, and even phone covers.
Check out the store here.
Being able to design patterns and get them put on actual garments and items is a real dream come true moment for me. Thank you all for your support!
Recently, the BF and I went to Disneyland, and I took advantage of my time in Orange County to visit the At Home store for the first time.
Several YouTubers I watch had shown that At Home had started stocking Halloween items early, so since I do not have an At Home near me, but Disneyland does… well, I had to go!
This store did not disappoint!
I got the cute items you see in these pictures. I enjoyed shopping in person, but they do have a website here so you can start your decorating early as well.
Happy shopping and Code Orange!!!
In addition to writing this blog and my first book offering, I’ve also been designing some vinyl pins and lately gotten into designing notebooks with a nerdy flair!
I’ve also designed a lefthanded version for each design for my fellow lefties out there. No more smudges on the arms and no more lines on your arms, Huzzah!
Here are some pics of the covers. All of them come in the aforementioned lefthanded version, but they also all have a sketchbook, ruled paper, graph paper and dot paper version to choose from.
Well, I did it. I finally got to Avengers Campus at Disney’s California Adventure. After a year’s delay due to COVID, the Campus is up and running!
A few things to note before you go. You have to have a ticket to DCA and a reservation for DCA for the day you want to go. Next, getting onto the Campus will take a few hours. There is a stand-by line, but you will get in. If you get a boarding pass for the Web Slingers ride (you get that online if you are lucky at 7 am and again at noon), you can by-pass the line, but getting a boarding pass is tricky.
Now, once you get there, it is simply amazing! It was everything I hoped it would be.
The Avengers are walking around regularly doing meet and greets (socially distant for now). There are regular battles going on at the Avengers main building.
You can also find the Guardians of the Galaxy having a dance-off party to save the Universe in front of Mission Breakout.
Bill the boyfriend and I had such an amazing time! On top of everything, the food at the Pym Test Kitchen is all amazing as well!
Until next time…
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.
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.
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.
