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.
Recently, we went to a couple of horror-themed shows and conventions in the LA area.
The first was Son of Monsterpalooza in Burbank. This was a first for both of us. The kiddo and I have never been to a horror-themed convention before. I enjoyed this show a lot. I was impressed with the celebrity meet and greets offered by the show. Furthermore, the celebrities are at their tables and you just walk up and chat, get autographs and photos. No lines, no lotteries, no fuss.
I made a couple of nice purchases on the floor. This purse from Rock Rebel and this cat dress by Kreepsville 666. Click on links to peruse their sites.
The second show was Spookshow at Halloween Club in Orange County. This show was an outside horror-themed flea market in their parking lot and the huge Halloween Store had almost everything marked down.
This show had free admission, which was nice, but there were far fewer vendors and the store was pretty junky and crowded.
Here are some photos from the show floor and the lot at Spookshow.
I did get these sunnies at the show, but the vendor doesn’t have a website for you to check out, unfortunately.
But, most importantly, me and the kiddo had a lovely day out, which is why we do what we do!
The google eye figures, cauldron and witch hat light are from Target. The glitter pumpkins and velvet pumpkin are both from Michael’s.
Not all items are available anymore, so our shopping links are to each store’s Halloween Store pages so you can go from there. If I find specific links, I will put them in the picture descriptions above for you.
For part 2 of our Hogwarts Bound outfits of the day, we went in two different gender directions, but stayed in the dapper bound family for each look. All photos taken by Justin Davidson Photography. Book him here. You’ll be glad you did!
My dress is from CowCow. I really love this site. They have several different cuts and any kind of print you can imagine. You pick the print and the cut, and they make the dress for you. The delivery time is not very long (a couple of weeks) and the price is more than reasonable. Also, size inclusive! I’m wearing a size 3XL in the Cap Sleeve Front Wrap Midi Dress in Yellow Stars Print. Click on the link above to order your own.
This dress is so comfortable and versatile. I wear it to work, to Universal and out all the time. I love it! The print is perfect for a Hufflepuff like me or really any witch, to be honest. Regardless of your House.
Our latest cosplays, Hogwarts students, debuted at Los Angeles Comic Con.
Unfortunately, LACC was pretty lackluster this year, so we don’t really have any new from it to share. I think with Stan Lee stepping down and taking his name off the con, it is having a bit of an identity crisis.
But our latest cosplays were a big hit, so we will be rolling these out again very soon. Hopefully at Universal to get some pictures.
This outfit also works as a great outfit of the day. Ties are from Spirit Halloween. Vests from Goodwill and shirts from Amazon.
We finished the day as all witches should, with a witches’ brew frap!
