Everyday Cosplay: Peggy Carter

ec_agentcarter1
blouse: ModCloth // skirt: ModCloth // clutch: ModCloth
necklace: Le Fancy Geek Boutique // belt: Fossil // shoes: Bait Footwear

I adored Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger, so of course I’m completely obsessed with¬†Agent Carter! It’s so awesome that Marvel created a show focusing on such a strong, badass mamajama.¬†Are any of you fangirling over it too? Do you want to elbow¬†Agent Chad Michael Murray in the face as much as I do? Did you watch last night’s episode?!?!?! Because OMG OMG OMG.

Putting together an Everyday Cosplay for Peggy was a bit of a challenge at first because I kept flip flopping between different outfits she wore on the show and in the Captain America movie. Do I stick with her neutral military ensembles, or her sharp blue suit and red fedora number¬†from Agent Carter? I gravitated towards the simple neutral pallet of her military uniform and found some items on ModCloth, such as a the cream blouse, olive skirt, and postcard clutch, to pull the look together. The postcard clutch says “Make up for last time” — it kind of reminded me of when Steve promised her a dance as his plane was plummeting, and he obviously couldn’t keep it because… well, he turned into a popsicle. I’M SORRY I WENT THERE. :'(

I also included a Steve Rogers pendant that just got added to Le Fancy Geek Boutique! I’ve also added a Peggy Carter necklace that comes in two different color ways — one features the same cream lace background as the Steve Rogers pendant, and the other has a maroon floral background.

If you’re fangirling like somethin’ fierce¬†over Agent Carter like I am, leave a comment so we can start fangirling together!

Five Fandom Friday: Geeky Clothing Items I Need in My Closet Immediately

Screen-Shot-2014-09-25-at-7.48.24-AM

Megan of The Nerdy Girlie and Kristin of Super Space Chick started a really great series called Fandom Friday where they, and other geeky bloggers, list 5¬†things they’re geeky for. This Friday’s theme is fashion! I love all the fandoms I’m part of (derp) and I always draw fashion inspiration from all of them, so this feels like a good day to jump on the 5 Fandom Friday wagon ūüôā

Pumpkin Coach Sweater by Cakeworthy x Disneybound

I love how Cakeworthy took the old Coach logo and put a Disney twist on it with Cinderella’s pumpkin carriage. And the subtle touches they did with what year it was established (1950, as in the the year Cinderella was released) and that they’re form “A land far, far away” is just so clever.

The Hiddleston bow by Dulce Calaveritas

Tom Hiddleston counts as a fandom, right? Duh, of course he does! So I totally feel justified in putting this adorable hair bow by Dulce Calaveritas on this list! As you can see it features Mr. Hiddleston’s handsome mug all over it. If you check out her shop, she also has a Benedict Cumberbatch bow and tons of other fun designs!

Doctor Who “Goodbye Raggedy Man” tank by Her Universe

The 11th Doctor holds a special place in my heart and I think this tank by Her Universe is such a fun a piece with it’s water color doodle print. I remember seeing it on Doctor Who’s Facebook page after the last day of¬†San Diego Comic-Con and was sooo bummed that I didn’t get to buy it while I was there. If I made time to walk by the BBC America booth I would’ve gotten it in a heartbeat!¬†At least I know it’s there on the internet when I have the monies to finally buy it! I think it would look so cute with an eggplant cardigan, skinny jeans, and some boots. ūüôā

Star Wars x Vans Shoes

I’ve been drooling over these Journeys exclusive Star Wars shoes by Vans since they came out during the summer. They’re my favorite of the ones that have been released… I think that may be because Han Solo’s on them though.¬†But¬†let’s be honest: he’s the sh!t and super dreamy!

Sherlock “Bored” A-line Dress by Gold Bubble

This skater dress features Sherlock’s wallpaper complete with the spray painted happy face. How could I not add this onto my list of geeky clothing items I need?! I actually got to see this dress in person on none other than Victoria Schmidt a.k.a. Scruffy Rebel at Stockton-Con back in August and it’s too… what do the Brits say? Brilliant! It’s too bloody brilliant! The attention to detail on it is great because it has this faint blue line that goes throughout it just like the wallpaper on BBC’s Sherlock.

What’s on your geeky clothing wish list?

Cheers,
Nina

Unicorn Crafts

Hey ponies!¬†The Unicorn Crafts giveaway I’m hosting was supposed to end tonight at midnight, but I decided to extend it until this Saturday, the 23rd at midnight PST to give you all a bit more time to enter for a chance to win it. Yaaaay!

Be sure to go –>¬†here¬†<– in order to enter the giveaway.¬†

Anywho, I want to showcase some of the other cute little trinkets that can be found at Unicorn Crafts as well so you can all get a sense of just how awesome Faheema’s shop is! Though it may be called Unicorn Crafts, there is certainly more to it than just adorable little unicorns — you can also find necklaces, rings, earrings, and pins with narwhals (technically the unicorn of the sea… oops), Totoro, Doctor Who, R2-D2, kawaii looking snacks like bacon, donuts, cookies, avocados, macarons, (etc) with little smiley faces, and many, many, MANY more things!

Besides the necklace I got at AnimeExpo, I also picked up a Game of Thrones pin with House Stark’s sigil of a dire wolf and motto “Winter is coming” for my sister since she’s a huge GoT¬†fan. This was a few weeks before I started watching the show, so now I’m bummed that I didn’t watch it any sooner. * le sigh *

Your teeth are totally throbbing from all the sweetness that is Unicorn Crafts now, aren’t they?¬†Sorry I’m not sorry about that. ‚ėļ

Be sure to check out Unicorn Craft’s online shop for more goodies, and, ¬†of course, don’t forget to enter the giveaway!

Cheers,
Nina

Unicorn Crafts Review & Giveaway!

{ Giveaway now closed }

Hey my little ponies!

Last month I got to meet Faheema Chaudhury, the mastermind behind Unicorn Crafts, at AnimeExpo and picked up a couple of things¬†— one being a¬†purple resin necklace with an adorable little unicorn and bright colored sprinkles that I’m wearing in the picture above. I don’t exactly remember how I came across Unicorn Crafts… like, I don’t know if it was through another blogger’s post or a hashtag search on Instagram — all I know is that¬†I fell in love with with all the accessories with cute unicorns and nerdy illustrations (R2D2, Doctor Who, Sailor Moon, macarons with smiley faces, etc) on them, so it was only natural for me to start stalking¬†following Unicorn Crafts on Instagram¬†to keep up with all the kawaiiness. You can’t imagine how excited I was to see that there’d¬†be a Unicorn Crafts booth at AnimeExpo while I was there too! Or maybe you can imagine how excited I was. Who knows? ¬†ūüôā

It doesn’t really seem like it needs to be said, but I’m completely smitten with my necklace! It combines everything I love: unicorns (duh), sprinkles, and the color purple. Oh, and I can’t forget to mention that it’s all on a super fancy frame. All things that look fancy with a geeky/cute element pretty much have my name written all over it. I kind of feel like this necklace was made just for me — obviously it wasn’t, but still. Faheema illustrated the unicorn herself (all the pieces for Unicorn Crafts feature her original artwork), but what’s so awesome about it is that it’s made from Shrinky Dinks (in case you’re too young to know what that is, it’s this)!

Would you like¬†one too? Well, you’re in luck little ponies because Unicorn Crafts is graciously sponsoring a giveaway for¬†one of you lucky ponies to win the same necklace that I have! HURRAY!!!
