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.
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 for any Han Solo cosplay or bound are the blood-stripe pants.
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!
A couple of weeks ago, the kiddo and I were lucky enough to attend our first Dapper Day at Disneyland!
Dapper Day is something I’ve always wanted to attend, but just never had the opportunity to do so.
A little background on Dapper Day. Two times a year at Disneyland, WDW and Disneyland Paris, Disney hosts a Dapper Day event. This event has an Expo, where you can purchase dresses, shoes, gloves, sunglasses, hats, bowling shirts, parasols, etc. and then it is off to the parks to enjoy your day in your dapper finery. Visit their website here for more information.
Here are some wonderful pictures from our Dapper Day. If you got a chance to attend, what were your thoughts? Please comment and let us know. We love to hear from you!
We decided this is the first of many Dapper Days to come for us. We were super inspired. As a matter of fact, we are going to focus on more dapper inspired mash-ups with our cosplay and bounding for everyday in the coming year on our blog. So stay tuned for that!
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!
