Han Solo Bound for Galaxy’s Edge

OK, so we got a reservation for Galaxy’s Edge coming up, and cannot be more excited!

Our first thoughts go to, “What to wear?”, naturally.

My closet shopping expedition was very fruitful, but unfortunately, none of my Star Wars pieces are available any more.  So, I took on the challenge for you guys.  Find a women’s and a men’s (size inclusive) Han Solo bound completely from Amazon on on Prime.  That way you can get it quickly and free shipping!  So, doing a little online shopping, here’s what I found.  Click on each link to buy each item.  Happy Shopping!

Let’s Get Building!

The Leader

The Leader for any Han Solo cosplay or bound are the blood-stripe pants.

I found this skirt and pants on Amazon.  You can add red felt stripes to the skirt.

The Brick

The Brick would be the vest and shirt.

I found this vest, and this one.   I found this shirt and this one.

The Scientist

The Scientist would be his boots.  However, tall boots would get pretty hot and uncomfortable, not to mention terrible for theme park walking, so I found these sneakers and these walking boots.

 

The Exotic

I found a couple of fun accessories for The Exotic.  A Millenium Falcon necklace and a Han Solo belt.

The Blaster

There really isn’t any special Blaster items or make-up for a Han Solo bound, but just try to not be too scruffy-lookin!

Until next time…

Outfit of the Day: Pin-up Wand Dress from Unique Vintage

For our latest outfit of the day, I have my pin-up wand dress from Unique Vintage.

This dress, to be honest, I thought was “too much” when I first saw it in photos.  However, once I saw the dress in person, I really liked it.

I also chose to tie the neck tie in a Windsor knot instead of a bow.  I think it gives the dress a little nice edge.

Fashion Alert- “Grandpa” Sneakers

One of the big trends right now is the chunky or “Grandpa” sneaker.

FaceApp_1558763276279 (1)

This look is great for several reasons.  One, they are super comfy!  Two, they come in a variety of colors so you can match any outfit.  Three, they look great with everything, dresses, skirts, pants or shorts.  Finally, they come in all price points, so everyone can enjoy this trend!

 

For example, I bought a couple of pair from Amazon, which were inexpensive.  I also bought a couple of pair on sale at Skechers, which after the markdown, were also inexpensive.  See below for some examples of some sneakers with shopping links.  I’ve started with the designer sneakers with the price to match and down to inexpensive.  To be honest, since this trend may not last, I would go with the inexpensive ones.  So far, I’ve worn them frequently and they still look great.

Fila Disruptor II Sneaker– Costs around $100 bucks

Skechers D’Lites Sneakers– About $65 bucks

DIY: Make Your Own Teseract

I recently began building a screen accurate Captain Marvel cosplay (by build, I mean ordering various items, but I digress…).  Part of this cosplay is going to be the “The Fonz” lunchbox and teseract.  There are several teseracts available on Etsy, but I wanted to save a little money and make my own.

It is so easy, I wanted to share the DIY with you.  Shopping links below.

What you Need:

  • Acrylic box
  • Clear craft glue
  • Blue twinkle lights, battery operated
  • White parchment paper for cooking

Steps:

  • Take your parchment paper and cut into squares that fit inside each side of the acrylic box
  • Take a small amount of glue and attach each piece of paper into the inside of the box
  • Insert the twinkle lights and turn them on
  • Boom!  You’re done!

This is literally the easiest project ever.  It took me mere minutes for finish and now I have a great prop for various cosplays.  The great thing is that the little box has a swing lid, so you just open it, turn off the lights when you aren’t using them.

Outfit of the Day: Dragon Dress by Retrolicious

Our next outfit of the day is my new dragon dress by Retrolicious.

FaceApp_1558495490532

Recently, Retrolicious had a warehouse super sale, and I cleaned up.  I really like their take on the “new look” with interesting fabrics.  They do have some great mid-century staples, like polka dots and bold colors, but to have a swing dress with dragons all over it, or witches or dinosaurs, really opens up your creativity.
