Our latest outfit of the day is my new Creature From the Black Lagoon from Unique Vintage. There is also a men’s button-down shirt version, but unfortunately Benji’s is on backorder so we can’t show it to you in this post.
The dress and shirt are made from a super soft stretch taffeta. The print on the fabric is super bright and really beautiful.
Taffeta holds its shape really well, so I actually did not even wear a petticoat with the dress in these photos. I wore it to Son of Monsterpalooza in Burbank, and the day was pretty warm, so I was grateful to leave the crinoline at home!
I also was lucky enough to pick up the classic monster handbag in the photos from Rock Rebel at Son of Monsterpalooza.
Lastly, a quick bonus look is this cute cat pinafore from Kreepsville 666.

The kiddo and I recently got to go back to Universal Studios Hollywood to check out the new Jurassic World section on the lower lot.
We had a fantastic time! The area was packed! Packed! So, Benji couldn’t even ride the updated ride. Even with the single-rider line (I’m too chicken to go on it), the wait was over an hour and a half! So, next time. Also, the triceratops wasn’t out and about. So, also next time. Now we have an excuse to go back, not that we really needed one.
But, we DID get to pet Tango, the baby raptor…
We also got to meet Blue and give her a command. It was awesome!
I know we looked scared at a dude in a suit, but once you are face to face with Blue, let’s just say it’s a little nerve-wracking!
For our day at the park, I wore my Alan Grant bound.
The bandana is from Dollar Tree. The shirt is from Amazon. The skirt is from Retrolicious. The shoes are from Converse. Click on each link to buy.
The Team Build is as follows:
- The Leader is the blue shirt and bandana combo
- The Brick is the skirt
- The Scientist are the Chuck Taylors
- The Exotic is also the bandana and the aviator sunglasses
- The Blaster doesn’t really apply, but a nice natural make-up works

This bound was super comfy, even with the super hot day. I really love the skirt so much. Retrolicious pieces are size-inclusive and reasonably priced. Check out their website here.
Until next time…
Love, Kim and Benji
