Our latest outfit of the day is inspired by “WandaVision”, which starts streaming tomorrow on Disney+. I cannot be more excited for this show! We’ve waited almost two years for new Marvel content, and the time has finally come.
I took my inspiration from Wanda’s uniform colors or red and black and gave them a 50’s bend with a “new look” silhouette.
Once I got the color story together with the look itself, I added brooches to accessorize.
But, not just any brooches, I added witch-themed brooches to tie the whole look together. I also threw in a couple of 50’s themed pins for fun.
Loungefly continues to create amazing, well-made bags in a variety of fandoms. The small backpacks are my favorite for adventuring out. They hold all your gear for the day without being too heavy. Because they are on your back, they free your hands up as well.
My other favorites are the cosplay style cross-body bag. These are perfect for everyday and again, available in a variety of fandoms.
We got to go to our second Dapper Day at Disneyland recently. We spent a day in the parks and a day at the Dapper Day Expo. For our parks day, I wore my new Captain America Stealth dress to both parks.
For my latest cosplay, I put together a look for Dapper Day of my favorite Captain America suit, the stealth suit.
The dress is pretty easy to put together. I found some iron-on transfer paper at a craft store. With that, a star-shaped cookie cutter and a straight edge, I was able to create the stealth dress.
When choosing your star, make sure you choose one that is good scale to your body. Then you will need three stripes on each side, again, keep an eye on the scale. The stripes end at the arms at a 90 degree angle, but are diagonally cut to fit close to the star. The lengths also vary, with two shorter stripes on the top and bottom and the longest in the middle.
The kiddo and I recently hosted our very first (first of many, I hope) couture meet-up at The Federal in North Hollywood.
We had a great time! I was recently inspired by the Lolita tea houses all over the world where Lolitas can meet up with each other in their favorite looks and hang out, inspire each other, take fun pictures, etc.
I wanted to widen the scope of the invite to include all kinds of geekery, so we put in the invite that there were no dress-code rules; wear whatever you want. As you can see, we had some great looks sported by some awesome ladies:
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.
