In my final Florida Supercon post, check out some of my favorite cosplays that I saw showcased on the exhibit floor. There were some pretty killer ones this year – from families all the way to pets! Everyone seemed to want to get in on the action this time around!
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.
I promise my next style post will be something other than what I put together for a Geek Girl Brunch event. Promise.
But until then, I did put together a pretty easy casual cosplay for our most recent Videogame themed brunch. I grew up a Nintendo kid, and that never really changed as I became an adult. My husband (then boyfriend) bought me a GameCube to take with me to grad school when I moved away to Pensacola, and it literally became my best friend. I felt really isolated when I moved to a new city, and spent most of my nights either studying, typing away at another emo Livejournal post, binge watching TV shows, reading Harry Potter or playing games on my GameCube with the volume on mute and my music of choice blaring (it was usually 30 Seconds to Mars at that time). When we moved in together, we were one of those freaks that stood in line forever and bum rushed a Toy R Us to get our hands on a Wii console. We still have it and I refuse to get rid of it. Nintendo has been with me always, and I’m pretty sure that’s never going to change. That’s why I decided I had to be one of my beloved Mario Kart characters. I always played either as Princess Peach, Luigi or Toad, so I chose the Princess (naturally). 😉
You know those DC Bombshell figures that are absolutely adorable? Well, being a Marvel girl myself, I wanted to embody that beautiful pin up vibe when putting together my casual cosplay ensemble for our most recent Geek Girl Brunch event. I knew we were going to be outside in the South Florida humidity, so it was important to dress as cool and comfortable as I could while still looking cute. It was tough to settle on a character, but I finally decided on Black Widow. At first, her character was not what it could be in the films, but after watching Civil War, I was so happy to see her flashing her badassery without abandon. Girl freaking power.
Our most recent Geek Girl Brunch was held at Earls in Dadeland Mall and it was Game of Thrones themed. The season 6 premiere is upon us (so, so excited) and I wanted to pay homage to my favorite character, Daenerys Targaryen. I knew I didn’t want to go full cosplay, but rather casually by emboding her vibe in something more wearable. I found such a perfect dress from Forever 21 – I don’t think I could have done better! What I love the most is that the pale blue maxi is absolutely on trend for upcoming summer days, so I see myself getting a lot of use out of it.
