A couple of weeks ago, Miami welcomed Florida Supercon to Miami Beach during 4th of July weekend. I hadn’t been to a con in a year (!!!), so it was nice to be back in my element socializing with fellow geeks! I also had the opportunity to sit on my first panel that I organized myself with some ladies I really admire, which can now be crossed off the bucket list. All in all, it was a great weekend and look out for more posts detailing my experience coming up next week on the blog!
For now, check out the outfits I put together for each day I attended the con:
Kylo Tee; Jordan Dene
Detachable Peter Pan collar; eBay
High waist jeans; Forever 21
Internet pin; Tumblr
I Rebel pin; Geek Girl Gang
Nail polish; Essie’s No More Film
Lipstick; Colourpop’s Bootie
Friday was my day to wander the Con all by my lonesome, check out the exhibit floor and get my first convention-based tattoo! I knew I wanted to be comfortable, but also show my geek side. As usual, my immediate go-to was a Jordan Dene tee, because what else is there?? I threw on my favorite of my extensive collection and made it chic by adding my favorite peter pan collar paired with fun pins.
Saturday is always the day where attendance peaks, so I knew it had to be the day I cosplayed to get maximum exposure (did you really cosplay if no one saw??). Again, I would be working interviewing and chatting people up for the blog, so I knew I couldn’t do anything too over the top. I still had to be comfortable. This Her Universe Storm Trooper dress was absolutely perfect because it’s so comfy, has pockets (!!!) and looks great paired with a simple kids mask. Although it was difficult to engage people with the mask on, I still adored this simple cosplay.
Sunday was the big day: panel day! I knew I wanted to embody my personal style that I share with you all here, but still be comfortable (can you sense a theme?) since I’d be nervous and fidgety. I wanted to be authentically me. Thankfully, I was able to do so while also supporting another geek mama like myself! Little Bear Butt sent me an amazing package full of goodies to share with all of you here and one of them was this amazing Avengers skirt. I loved it and so did everyone else. It also couldn’t be more “me,” with its feminine and almost pin-up-y vibe. Success!
I hope you guys enjoyed these looks and I hope to see you all at future conventions – I am gearing up to have a very busy end of 2016 and 2017 on the con scene (hopefully). See you all soon!
