I hope everyone had an amazing time over the holidays. We had a great time, and now we are looking forward to a new year of fashion! There are some great new things coming up this year that we need to get ready for. WonderCon, Spring Dapper Day and the opening of the Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure.
Until then, here’s a quick recap of my holiday trip to Disneyland (Benji had theatre and couldn’t make it. Just want you all to know I’m not a jerk that went to Disneyland without my kid!)
I wore my Disney Dress Shop dress and silver holo ears.
This dress is no longer available at shopdisney.com, but you can still get it on Amazon. Same goes for the ears.
I had a great time enjoying the holiday decor, not to mention the treats.
So, here is our first outfit of the day for the year. A year with tons of fashion adventures ahead. So, stay tuned…
Our latest outfit of the day comes from Our Universe, the unisex branch of Her Universe.
They recently began producing pieces for their Harry Potter collection. They started with dress, then moved on to these great casual cosplay robes/hoodies.
The robes are available by clicking on this link. I linked the Harry Potter page so you can pick the Hogwarts house you want.
The hoodies are super comfy and soft. They are not heavy and cumbersome like the robes sold in the park, but they do include the crest for your house, the house colors and a pointy hood and most importantly, a wand pocket!
My boyfriend also got one and loves his, so they are great for guys as well.
I’m so glad that Her Universe keeps fulfilling the desires of geeks everywhere. I also applaud calling this line Our Universe rather than, His Universe. When the company was started, remember this was before women and girl geeks had any choices in geek wear, so for now the name “Her Universe” is very important. However, I believe that eventually the whole company will be called Our Universe and do away with traditional gendered labels.
Our latest outfit of the day is my new Creature From the Black Lagoon from Unique Vintage. There is also a men’s button-down shirt version, but unfortunately Benji’s is on backorder so we can’t show it to you in this post.
The dress and shirt are made from a super soft stretch taffeta. The print on the fabric is super bright and really beautiful.
Taffeta holds its shape really well, so I actually did not even wear a petticoat with the dress in these photos. I wore it to Son of Monsterpalooza in Burbank, and the day was pretty warm, so I was grateful to leave the crinoline at home!
I also was lucky enough to pick up the classic monster handbag in the photos from Rock Rebel at Son of Monsterpalooza.
We recently had a free afternoon, so we took our annual passes out for a spin and went to Disneyland.
The day was super duper hot, so I had to make a quick wardrobe change from what I had planned. I had planned on wearing my Red the Pirate dress from The Dress Shop, but I’ll have to take it out on the town, or land, later.
Instead, I wore my BB8 dress by Her Universe for Torrid.
This dress is perfect for going to parks for a day. I got tons of compliments on it, and even got hassled by Storm Troopers in Batuu.
Then we ran into some of our closest friends, and watched the Electrical Light Parade together.
It was a great day!
The dress is by Her Universe for Torrid. While it is not readily available, you can still find it online on Ebay. The cropped white tee is from Target and my trusty Chucks by Converse.
The kiddo and I recently hosted our very first (first of many, I hope) couture meet-up at The Federal in North Hollywood.
We had a great time! I was recently inspired by the Lolita tea houses all over the world where Lolitas can meet up with each other in their favorite looks and hang out, inspire each other, take fun pictures, etc.
I wanted to widen the scope of the invite to include all kinds of geekery, so we put in the invite that there were no dress-code rules; wear whatever you want. As you can see, we had some great looks sported by some awesome ladies:
The kiddo and I recently got to go back to Universal Studios Hollywood to check out the new Jurassic World section on the lower lot.
We had a fantastic time! The area was packed! Packed! So, Benji couldn’t even ride the updated ride. Even with the single-rider line (I’m too chicken to go on it), the wait was over an hour and a half! So, next time. Also, the triceratops wasn’t out and about. So, also next time. Now we have an excuse to go back, not that we really needed one.
But, we DID get to pet Tango, the baby raptor…
We also got to meet Blue and give her a command. It was awesome!
I know we looked scared at a dude in a suit, but once you are face to face with Blue, let’s just say it’s a little nerve-wracking!
For our day at the park, I wore my Alan Grant bound.
