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 comes from Her Universe.
Recently, Her Universe released a brand new Harry Potter collection with items for all the houses. There were also a couple of items part of their Our Universe collection as well, including lightweight house robes that are way more comfortable than the ones sold at Universal parks.
It is difficult to find pretty Hufflepuff wear, so I snagged this dress when I saw it. The yellow isn’t too mustard-y (not a word, but well it is now). The length is also fantastic!
I also love the house patches on each dress. The fabric is nice and stretchy, but still holds its shape.
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.
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:
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.
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.
For our first post of the year, we present our new Hogwarts Bound outfits of the day!
As you can see, these outfits are unisex. They can be as feminine or as masculine as you want. They can both be worn everyday. This is actually one of my favorite work outfits right now.

Ties from Spirit Halloween. Vests from Goodwill. Button-downs from Amazon. My skirt is also from Amazon. Scout’s coat is actually my Deathly Hallows coat from Hot Topic. I’m wearing a size 3XL and wear a size 20 for reference. My shoes are a DIY that I will show you how in a separate post. Wands and my bag from Universal Studios as was the location for the shoot.
A special shout-out to the Cast Members at Universal for being so accomodating for all of us bloggers and cosplayers shooting at the park!
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!
