In the Name of the Moon: Sailor Moon Inspired Finds

August 5th, 2014 | Posted in Geekery, TV by Meli

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I was heavily into Sailor Moon growing up. It was my first taste of anime, and I couldn’t get enough of the Magical Girl genre. I didn’t stop with the anime series though, I also watched the movies and the live-action series (don’t judge). Unfortunately, since I have such a terrible memory, I don’t remember details and am a little rusty on my canon. However, Hulu has helped me refresh by re-releasing all 200 episodes (2 at a time every Monday)! I’ve been torturing anyone I can find by having them watch with me, and twice a month, you can also find me glued to the newest series, Sailor Moon Crystal, which is also being aired by Hulu (this one is based on the manga). Basically, it is all Sailor Moon, all the time at my house and I couldn’t be happier.

With this seemingly being the summer of Moonies, I, of course, find it completely necessary to stock up on all things Sailor Senshi. Here are some of my favorite finds;

Top Row; Artemis Tee (x), Luna/Artemis Sleep Masks (x), What Would Luna Do Sweater (x) | Middle Row; Sailor Moon Inspired Stickers (x), Moon Crisis Compact (x), Sailor Moon Tee (x) | Bottom Row; I am Sailor Moon Tank Dress (x), Luna Crop Top (x), Sailor Moon Patches (x)

ReBrand in Process: Let’s Geek Out!

August 4th, 2014 | Posted in Blog, Geekery by Meli

Really really happy to announce that I will be rebranding the blog for the next few months. I’m sure you’ve all seen a gradual change to include all things geeky in pop culture, but I am going to take it one step further. From now on, Melificent will be a geeky fashion and lifestyle blog. That’s right. All geek, all the time. Don’t worry – outfit posts will continue to be featured, but they will center around how to rock your favorite fandoms in a chic way. All other content will center around how to live a geek chic lifestyle (fashion, beauty, home decor, DIY, conventions/events, cosplay, etc).

Of course, that means a new layout, new business cards, new promotional images and all sorts of fun stuff. But that will come with time. I don’t want to overwhelm the poor hubs! I hope you all are as excited about this as I am – I love my blog, but saw it slowly drifting into unknown and unfamiliar territory. I wanted to bring it back to something I know, and love.

SDCC 2014 Photo Diary

July 31st, 2014 | Posted in Geekery by Meli

Let’s face it. San Diego Comic Con is the most epic time of year. In fact, I may even refer to it as my favorite holiday (who needs Christmas?). For these reasons, I find it hard putting together a highlights post with just words because it may end up looking a little something like this: aldksfnboierjaqeorwanv!!!!!!a;odifja?!?! And who really wants to read an entire post of that nonsense? So I figured a photo diary would be the way to go.

However, before I get to the photos, I want to thank everyone that made my 5th trip to Comic Con such a memorable one. I can’t wait to continue living the convention life and sharing it with all of you. Next up? I’ve got my sights on you, New York Comic Con!

Geek Out: Time Lord Love

July 29th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Geekery by Meli

Yes, I am back from San Diego Comic Con. Yes, it was magical. Yes, I am exhausted. Yes, it was worth every sleepless night. I have so much to share with you all, but I’ll start with one of my favorite outfits from the Con. Sure, it was simple, but I love that I was able to customize the shirt myself. That means I did not run into anyone else with the same tee (happens on the regular), and got a ton of compliments (even on the plane ride there)!

I always say that The Doctor is every woman’s fantasy: an attractive man that promises to take you away from your reality and on amazing adventures that make you reach your max potential. I mean, who wouldn‘t want that? And thus, I like Time Lords (sorry husband).

Tee; c/o HiCustom
Shorts; Old Navy
Sneaks; Forever 21
Flower Crown; Headbuds
Necklace; Snake & Fawn
Nail Art; I Heart Nail Art
