In keeping with the Supercon posts, I figure I would share with you all the great finds I was able to snag while attending a couple of weeks back. I’m always impressed with the immense talent I find hidden right under my nose at local conventions, and love supporting small businesses and independent artists. My home is full of fanart made by some amazing artists and I hope to just continue that trend. I can’t wait to further feature some of these goodies, but for now, I’m just too excited to not share.
1. Sailor Moon Stick; I could not believe the amazing quality and price of this beautiful wooden moon stick! Altruistic sells some great cosplay weapons that can be used as props for your next convention, or just to display. I had to take this beauty with me to display in Luna’s room! It’s going to look perfect on one of her shelving units! They have so many other gorgeous props from different fandoms to choose from – so definitely check out their site.
2. Ice Cream Dress; I’ve been trying to stay away from form fitting clothes lately, mainly because I know I won’t be able to really enjoy them until after little Luna makes her appearance. However, I could not resist the temptation when I saw this adorable ice cream dress from Shop Veralu. It is so bright and fun. It just screamed Meli, so naturally it had to come home with me. I tried it on recently and it still fits (although very snug)! I’m going to try to get at least one use out of this baby before Luna grows me out of it!
3. My Little Pony Clutch; This is another stellar find from Shop Veralu! What I love the most about this shop is that it is located in The Florida Keys (which is one of my favorite spots ever) and handmade by the absolutely endearing and talented Lu Annen. I was lucky enough to chat with her both on and off camera for Fashionably Nerdy, and I can’t wait to feature her bright and fun fashions in an outfit post. Of course, I couldn’t go home with out this perfect little clutch that can be used to brighten any occasion, from wedding guest to date night.
