Back to School Guide

As I take Benji to register for the 8th grade today, in addition to coming to grips with the fact that I have an 8th grader, I thought that I would post some great items for back to school.  Click on the links to buy.

Backpacks

Benji’s favorite band is Panic! At the Disco, so I found a new Panic! backpack from Hot Topic.  The Loki backpack is also from Hot Topic by Loungefly.  Finally, love this new Cap backpack!  Also from Hot Topic.

Woven Button Down Shirts

Benji loves to rock a good woven button down!  Here are a few I found:

The Lion King and Nightmare Before Christmas shirts are from Box Lunch.  The Harry Potter prisoner shirt is from Hot Topic.

Hoodie and Shoes

Her Universe just released a whole Harry Potter line that really knocked it out of the park!  Most items are also available on Hot Topic’s and Torrid’s websites as well.  The prisoner shirt above is also from this collection.

The hoodies are available for each house and…. WAND POCKET!  Click here for shoesClick here for hoodies.

Dresses

Last, but certainly not least, are the dresses.

The Harry Potter dress is available at Her Universe and Hot Topic.  Same for the Spiderman dress.  The plaid dress is from Hot Topic as an online exclusive.

Happy Shopping and have a great new school year!

Love, Kim and Benji

Captain Marvel Cosplay

I recently received my new Captain Marvel cosplay from Sim Cosplay.  I spent the extra money for a custom fit, and I’m so glad I did.  It is a bit roomy in places, but better too big than too small.  All the pieces, including the boots, are included.  The quality is great, so I highly recommend working with them when you want to build a new cosplay.  Click here for their website.

I’ll do a photoshoot when the heat dies down a bit, as this cosplay is warm to say the least, but until then, enjoy these quick pics!

Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland

We recently got a coveted reservation for Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland.  We had a great time, and when you can, I highly recommend taking a trip there.

Here are some pics from the day.  Enjoy!

Before you ride the Smuggler’s Run ride, you get to enter the Falcon, which was a dream-come-true for these nerds.

We did get a reservation time to build our own lightsabers, which was a great experience.

We sampled blue milk, which is delicious…

We finished our trip to Batuu with some shopping.  I got this adorable Lando doll!

We finished our trip the next day by going to Disney’s California Adventure.  We got lucky and got into a character brunch and met Spidey!

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…

Love, Kim and Benji
