Outfit of the Day: Hogwarts House Robes by Our Universe

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.

The other pieces I have on include a very old Target dress that is no longer available, but I found a similar one here.  My bat belt is from Kreepsville 666.  The button and necklace are from Wish.  The light-up wand is from Amazon.

Happy Shopping!

Outfit of the Day: Captain Marvel Leggings

Our next outfit of the day is my new pair of Captain Marvel leggings from Etsy.

20190913_115504I love these so much!  They are screen accurate, nice thick spandex that passes the bend-over test and has a nice bright print printed on them.

20190910_154216My only complaint is that they are a little short-waisted.  I wish that I could hoist them up a smidge higher.  They would stay in place a bit better.

20190910_154305These are size-inclusive, going up to a 5xl.

20190910_154241My shirt is from Lane Bryant, my boots from Amazon and necklace from Hot Topic.  Barbie from Target.

Outfit of the Day: Hogwarts House Dresses from Her Universe

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.

The dress is available for each house in standard and plus sizes.  Get your own by clicking on this link.  Dresses are also available at Hot Topic.

We took these latest outfits out for a day at Hogsmeade Village during the holiday celebration at Universal Studios Hollywood.

This is a simple stylized cosplay that you can wear everyday if you want.  I wear the pieces separately depending on where I’m headed.  Ladies, you can add a bandana to your hair-do to add to the look.

Jackets are from Hot TopicPencil skirt and scarf are from Amazon.  Scout’s bandana is from Amazon.

This is really an easy cosplay to do.  If you want to get started cosplaying, I always say that a good mash-up or stylized cosplay is a great way to get going.

Please send us your own ideas for stylized cosplays.  We love to hear from you.

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.
