Find It Here: Halloween Decor

It is finally, FINALLY Halloween decorating time!

photogrid_1569276804382

Well, to be honest, I decorated the last weekend in September, but for most normal people, it is time to decorate for Halloween.

Here are some great pictures of our Halloween decor and some shopping links to peruse and buy some great decor for your own lair.

The moon “wreath” is from Spirit Halloween.  The black dragon is from Big Lots.  The little green one is from Michael’s.  The cauldrons, broom and doormat are also from Spirit Halloween.  The funkins are from Michael’s.

The items on the mantel are mostly from Target, but some are from Michael’s and Dollar Tree.  The ghost light, bat light and reaper figure are from Target.

The google eye figures, cauldron and witch hat light are from Target.  The glitter pumpkins and velvet pumpkin are both from Michael’s.

Not all items are available anymore, so our shopping links are to each store’s Halloween Store pages so you can go from there.  If I find specific links, I will put them in the picture descriptions above for you.

Happy Shopping!

Love, Kim and Benji

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.

Outfit of the Day: Pin-up Wand Dress from Unique Vintage

For our latest outfit of the day, I have my pin-up wand dress from Unique Vintage.

This dress, to be honest, I thought was “too much” when I first saw it in photos.  However, once I saw the dress in person, I really liked it.

I also chose to tie the neck tie in a Windsor knot instead of a bow.  I think it gives the dress a little nice edge.

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.
