With COVID cases finally declining, our Governor lifted stay-at-home orders and the ban on outside dining recently.
Boyfriend Bill and I took advantage of that and took a day off to go to Downtown Disney.
In addition, Disney has opened the main street and Hollywood section of Disney’s California Adventure for shopping.
I did make note of the fact that work has resumed on Avenger’s Campus, which makes me more happy than I could ever express. To celebrate that, I wore my Black Widow Disney Dress Shop dress by Her Universe.
I picked up one of the new Nuimos. Nuimos were a huge hit in Japan, and now they have made their way to the USA. They are fully posable with a variety of fashionable looks to choose from. I chose Daisy, cause, duck. I bought her a cute ensemble that makes her super stylish I think! Shop for Nuimos online here. It is also important to note that Her Universe will be designing everyday cosplay looks for Nuimos. So, your toys can bound too! Feel free to use a Team Build Checklist for them as well (wink)! Maybe I should make some tiny Team Build Checklists…
As always, the Disney Dress Shop dresses look amazing and are super comfortable. I love the design on this dress as well. And yes, there are pockets! Get your own dress here.
I love the vibrant color and the fabric is a super stretchy and comfy scuba, so it keeps its shape. I also love the length, which is just below the knee. You can turn it into a move vintage look by adding a petticoat.
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.
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.
The next day we hit the floor and I picked up some of the pieces I saw at the show, including the Loki dress below.
Dress is available at Her Universe. Click on the link to buy. Shrug is from Torrid ages and ages ago.
And I got this cool pic with a Cookie Monster replica…
During the Marvel panel in Hall H (which we weren’t willing to sleep on the sidewalk to wait for…), Marvel revealed some details on the Black Widow film and Jane Foster will be The Mighty Thor in the next Thor film!
Then we had to hit the road and bid SDCC good-bye for another year.
I recently got to take part in my first ever Disneyland After Dark event, Heroes Assemble.
It was an amazing time! The event took place at Disney’s California Adventure park in Anaheim. All the heroes, ALL of them, were there for photo ops, which was just great. Star Lord and the Guardians had a DJ’d dance party going on. Ashley Eckstein from Her Universe was also there for a meet and greet. The park had special themed food and drinks, including infinity churros! I had a lovely boozy lemonade with red, white and blue stars sprinkled on top. Yummy!
I became a part of the collector’s collection…
BF and I got to meet Doctor Strange…
And I met Carol Danvers!!!!
Now, let’s break down the fashion, shall we!
I did a basic pin-up style Captain Marvel bound for the event. Here are the pieces:
