These are a few of my favorite trends…

Greetings glorious readers! So as you know, Mark and I get married in only 26 days… and hop onto a big fancy cruise ship in only 28 days. You know I need stuff to wear on that boat, and that means… cute clothes! Here are some of my favorite trends, and a few items I recently bought to up my kawaii geek style game.

1. Lace shorts. As long as they don’t look too much like underwear, they are the perfect combination of feminine and comfortable. • 2. 2D bags. Yes! I have always wanted to live in a cartoon, and now my dreams are slowly coming true… and in so many choices! • 3. Mock thigh highs. They come in an insane amount of adorable styles, including kitties, bows, and more. • 4. All over prints… like this awesome Adventure Time one from Mighty Fine! I’ve seen rad ones of Bart Simpson, hamburgers, and so much more nonsense. I love it! • 5. Pinafores. Whimsical, childlike, and comfy. Need I say more? • 6. It’s a cat head purse. Yup! • 7. Big round bug-eye sunglasses. These ones are slightly creepy, and I just adore them! • 8. Kawaii tanks. I prefer tanks over tees in general, but this one is just spot on Totoro-tastic. • 9. Comfy, vintage, oversized tees, like this Star Wars one from Junk Food Clothing. • 10. Patterned flats, like these lamby ones from Iron Fist Clothing.

If my blog was an outfit, Dude Edish

If I were a boy … I think I could understand … How it feels to love a girl – wait no! Sometimes I wonder if I was a man, how would I dress differently? I doubt I’d wear as many dresses as I tend to wear now, but I bet I’d be a trendy dude. This post was originally inspired by the beautiful Girl Gone Geek when I saw her post on it, and it’s since been traced back to A Geek and Her Oven, The Nerdy Girlie, and even the IGGPPC. And here you have it, the “If my blog was an outfit,” Dude Edish!

Sexy Yellow Bumblebee

Sexy Yellow Bumblebee

I LOVE yellow. Just love it. Like a hot modern day Charlie Brown, it just calls to me. This trendy combo of black and yellow is like a super metrosexual bumble bee of awesome. I would definitely be prancing around the campus an art school wearing this entire outfit.

Time Traveller

Time Traveller

Something tells me I like man purses. I would definitely be able to find my companion in this awesome Doctor Who inspired outfit. The lighter is probably because I would be a dude who smokes an epic pipe… and check out my awesome pocket watch! Classic!

Colorful Comic Book Geek

Colorful Comic Book Geek

I love colors!!! It’s one of my most favorite things! I also love the whole California skater look too! As a guy, I’d have impeccable taste in funky sunglasses, watches, and yes, more man purses. I’d rock lots of colorful comic book tees too!

The “If my blog was an outfit” idea has been great fun to bring to life. Special thanks to Jamila for being the original mama to introduce me to this FUN idea! Be sure to post your “If my blog was an outfit” post here, and let me know so I can see what YOU would rock if your blog was an outfit! More specifically, a dude’s outfit!

Geeky pixel and video game inspired resume!

Annoyance #47 about being engaged to a graphic designer: They always want to try to “fix up” your resume. My hubby-to-be is applying for programmer jobs, and I was concerned the design of his resume might have been a little lackluster. Of course, I may have also read this Mashable article about a girl who applied to an agency with a unique Lego resume. How original and creative! So then I put on the Frozen soundtrack, had a glass of wine, and I just “let it go” on his resume. Hehe.

This is a low quality version but I will be posting the original high quality version in a few hours. I left it at home on my other computer. Stay tuned ;)

Have you ever seen any creative and unique resumes that you loved? Post a comment!

Top 5 Cosplays on my Cosplay Bucket List

I’m getting the itch… to cosplay! So for 2014 and 2015 I am going to try to knock out as many of these as possible. The costumes for my chosen 5 are simple enough, so I can see this goal being completely attainable. Plus the world totally needs more cosplaying… and I need to do my part if we’re going to make the world a more colorful place <3

annie-league-of-legends

Annie from League of Legends

Annie is one I’ve dreamt of ever since Mark began playing League of Legends religiously. She’s adorable and evil, a combination that I’m a huge fan of. She has this epic bear named Tibbers that she can summon… he is her faithful bear slave and destroyer of worlds. Annie has a really cute purple dress, adorable bear backpack, random cat ears, and adorable 80′s leg warmers. In short, she’s a cute fireball of purpley goodness.

kiss-the-girl-ariel

Kiss the Girl Ariel from Disney’s The Little Mermaid

Ariel cosplays can be tricky, considering she’s a freaking fish. And I don’t see myself laying around a pool with my big green fin any time soon, so I’ve chosen to do “Kiss the girl” Ariel, or Kingdom dress Ariel. It’s recognizable enough, but I’ll actually get to use legs! The wig is key for this costume, for sure.

lydia-deetz

Lydia from Beetlejuice the cartoon

One of my absolutely favorite cartoons as a kid was Beetlejuice. Lydia wore a fantastic spiderweb poncho, pink and purple eyeshadow, and a crazy ponytail that just don’t quit. It not only seems extremely comfortable, but recognizable as well. My hope is that I could get a Beetlejuice to cosplay with me, but I think this one can be recognizable alone as well.

peter-pan

Disney’s Peter Pan

Peter Pan was a childhood idol of mine. He’s one of those androgynous cosplays that guys and girls can typically pull off. Peter is a young boy, and that makes girls the perfect choice to portray his youthful clean shaven look. We all know in the musical, he is usually played by a woman. And Peter represents a large part of my childhood and that notion of staying young forever. He’s adventurous, brave, charming and super cute! I gotta crow!

tina-belcher

Tina Belcher from Bob’s Burgers

BRB, writing erotic friend fiction. Tina Belcher was not my first choice for a Bob’s Burgers cosplay – it has always been Louise. But the more hilarious character development I see of Tina, the more I absolutely love her. She totally represents all of our awkward selves in our teen years, whether we like it or not. And again, it’s a simple costume that will be easy to put together. The key with this cosplay is that I believe it’s a must-do-as-a-group cosplay, which is why I am hoping me and my friends can do a Bob’s Burger group at New York Comic Con this year! So don’t be such a boob punch, and come hang out with me and Comic Con!
