What I Wore: The Last Unicorn

img_2502

As usual, Geek Girl Brunch days are my favorite days. It provides a creative outlet for my mind, and allows for some very coveted “me” time. Being an officer has been so fulfilling, and I can’t wait to continue planning some killer events with my bestie. With that said, I knew exactly what I was going to go for when we started planning for a Fantastic Beasts-themed brunch. I had gotten this incredible unicorn headpiece as part of a SDCC swag bag from The Fashionably Nerdy party. The minute I saw it, I was obsessed but had never had the opportunity to use it. Achievement: unlocked.

I challenged myself to find the rest of the outfit in my own closet, which turned out to be a cinch. I love my two tulle skirts so that was a given, and paired with my favorite basic crop top and pointy flats, I was ready to channel¬†those dark + mystical unicorn vibes. I had extra fun with my makeup and realized hot pink eyeshadow can be a great every day look (I’m totally serious).

Not going to lie, I may attempt to rock this look on the daily in hopes that I may actually magically transform into a unicorn, so you have been warned.

MegaCon Tampa Bay 2016 Cosplays

I’ve shared all my outfit and cosplay posts from MegaCon Tampa Bay, but now it’s time for everyone else! There was seriously so many amazing cosplays at this con. At times, I would just park myself in a certain spot so I could check out everyone’s amazing work. Some made me gasp, some laugh and others wish I had a different skill set. Overall, I’m pretty stoked I attended this con, and good news! It’ll be back in Tampa next Sept. 29-Oct. 1st. Too early to start planning? Can David Tennant be invited again? Until next time, here are some of my favorite cosplays of the weekend!

Halloween: Gotta Catch ‘Em All!

img_9835

This year was the first year Luna was old enough to actually trick or treat. Last year she was a fresh-out-of-the-oven newborn, so we just took pictures at home and called it a night. However, this time Luna was able to drunkenly totter around my friend’s neighborhood, and it was so much fun! Although it was still a short night for us (strict baby schedules and all that jazz), we made sure to make it worth it and went all out with our family costumes!

Cosplay: SnotGirl

As most of you know by now, I attended MegaCon Tampa Bay last weekend and it was ridiculously fun! It was the first time I was away (overnight) from Luna, so I’m not going to lie: I cried as we drove away from my house, but I was proud of myself for enjoying a little bit of “me time.” ¬†I knew I wanted to cosplay, but when I travel, I don’t like to do anything too elaborate.

I recently got very obsessed with the new comic from Image, SnotGirl. If you aren’t familiar, it’s about a fashion blogger that portrays herself as being totally put together and fabulous, but really has raging allergies and zero self confidence. Of course, there is a lot more to the story, but I don’t want to spoil it for you all because I totally recommend you all start reading it RIGHT NOW. But, anyways, the second I started reading this comic, I knew I wanted to cosplay as Lottie. I mean, a fashion blogger? DUH.

This had to be my easiest cosplay to date. I had everything I needed in my closet, except for the wig, which I scored through Amazon Prime and a box of Kleenex, that I picked up that very morning. Sure, not a lot of people knew who I was (shout out to the two guys that got super jazzed to see it), but I absolutely loved it. I’ll probably rock this cosplay again, and try to feature her other outfits. Thanks to everyone that showed me love about it on Instagram!

What I Wore: Murder Boyfriend

img_1124

One thing is for certain in this crazy world: there will never be a shortage of fun at Geek Girl Brunch Miami. Getting to plan geeky events all over Miami with my best friend is really the best stress relief possible, and this month’s brunch was a blast! Since it was October, we decided to make the theme Murder Boyfriends, a term coined from the depths of Tumblr to describe Hannibal Lecter and Will Graham’s relationship on Fuller’s Hannibal. Naturally, I had to casually cosplay as my favorite cannibal.
