[Self-Rescuing] Birthday Princess

le fancy geek her universe disneyland season of the force star wars geek fashion

A long time ago (30 years exactly) in galaxy far, far away, I was born on the 12th of January.

OH MY GOD, YOU GUYS. I’M 30 NOW.

Like I mentioned in previous posts, I kicked off this brand new decade of life at the Happiest Place on Earth! I went from the 10th-12th, so I also got to celebrate my last day as a 20-something there too. When one celebrates their birthday, they should dress for the occasion — at least that’s what I believe. Since I knew I was heading to Disney, it only felt right to channel some princess vibes. Princess Leia was the obvious choice for my birthday outfit inspiration because Star Wars has taken over my life for the past few months. Duuuuh. How perfect is Her Universe‘s Leia inspired dress?! I also accessorized with a Han Solo necklace I made, a Chewbacca ring, a heart shaped pin with Darth Vader, and bracelets that say mine and Rory’s name in Aurebesh (which you can get made in Tomorrowland).

I got to meet Darth Vader when I went to Disneyland in November, but this time around I also got to meet Chewbacca too! And Boba Fett… who is a dick… so I shall not speak of him. We went to the Star Wars Launchbay where Darth and Chewie are the day before my birthday too, but I wanted to go back because I couldn’t miss the opportunity to take pictures with them in my Leia outfit! Meeting Darth Vader is scary as hell, you guys. When I went in he paced in front of me and sized me up, and then said that he sensed my allegiance to the Empire was very strong (because he saw my heart shaped Vader pin), but said to not let my judgement misguide me as he gestured towards the Han Solo necklace I was wearing. AH!! He’s so intimidating. As I was walking away the cast member said, “Congratulations, you have officially joined the Empire.” Weee! But then I got to go see Chewie and he gives hugs! He probably wouldn’t have hugged me if I wore my Vader pin, so I took it off. And the cast members on the Rebels side are much cheerier — they wished me a happy sun cycle while the Empire congratulated me on my anniversary of life and asked what my serial number was. Anyhow, wookiee hugs are fantastic because it’s like you’re hugging a really big dog on its hind legs. Chewie was also super stoked when I showed him my big ring with his face one it 😀 At first he gestured for me to stand on his right side, but I asked if I could stand on his left since that’s my good side (gotta know your good angles!), and the cast member told him that I want to show off my flower and then he looked at me and patted the flower on my head. HE’S SO CUTE OMG. ♥♥♥

Nerdy 30 Birthday Wish List

nerdy geeky birthday wish list star wars her universe funko harry potter

Star Wars leggings | Star Wars: Aftermath | The Force Awakens novelization
Admiral Ackbar pin | Dumbledore Funko Pop! figure | Hufflepuff HP book set
Spider-Gwen v.0 | Ms. Marvel v.4 | Silk v.0 | Her Universe Loki pullover

My 30th birthday is in 2 days! AAAHHHH!!! Some people call it the “dirty 30.” Others call it the “flirty 30.” Since I am neither (well, maybe more dirty than flirty regarding my sense of humor), I am calling this birthday my “nerdy 30” because it makes so much more sense. And I’ll be at Disneyland to celebrate, because what better place to kick off 30th anniversary of life? 🙂

I threw a little birthday wish list together and as you can see, all I want are Star Wars, Marvel, and Harry Potter things (mainly books)! I’m not expecting to get any of these things, but y’know… it’s just a wish list.

Who else has a birthday in January that’s coming up or has passed? Lemme know what’s on your wish list or what you’ve gotten for your birthday in the comments section!

I’m off to SoCal to spend Christmas with my dad’s side of the family — everyone is packing up things last minute as I type this — so this is gonna be brief.

Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, I hope you have an amazing day and a happy new year!! And don’t tell me you don’t celebrate the new year because that happens to all of us. 😛

Wookiee Wednesday: Season of the Force (Part II)

THE FORCE AWAKENS COMES OUT THIS FRIDAY, YOU GUYS!

LIKE, OMG.

WTFF?!

I. CAN’T. EVEN.

I have to wait until 1:30 am to watch it on Thursday night (technically Friday) and I’m just aching because I know that there are people out there who have already seen it! Uuugggggghhh. #SoImpatient

Anyhow, as some of you might remember I was at Disneyland when they kicked off Season of the Force last month and I made a little post about it (which you can find here), and then I said I’d post more pics, but never did because work and life have been craycray… buuuut with The Force Awakens coming out so soon, I thought it was about damn time I make part II. So here it is!

Hope you all enjoyed my pictures! Are you planning on watching The Force Awakens tomorrow night or this weekend? Lemme know in the comments section so we can geek out together! 😀

cheers

Walkin’ in a Wampa Wonderland

I think it’s so cute whenever families put out personalized holiday greeting cards with a nice family photo on them during this time of the year. My family’s never really put them out — not that we never wanted to, I think we’re just lazy. Mother, if you’re reading this, sorry I’m not sorry! You know it’s true. 😛

Even though I’m a perpetually single dog mother, I don’t see why my relationship status should hinder me from putting out one of my own. So this year, after wanting to ever since Rory came into my life 4 years ago, I FINALLY made a holiday greeting card to send out to friends and family with just me and Rory!

But, as you know, I’m a fancy geek, so I couldn’t just make it a “traditional” card with the Christmas tree and usual red & green color scheme. Nuh-uh, honey. As soon as I realized Rory’s not an albino ewok, but a mini wampa, I immediately searched for doggy wampa costumes and once I found one, I knew that the theme of my very first single-dog-mama holiday card would be “Happy HOTHiday!” Next year we’re probably gonna roll with “Merry Sithmas,” since we have matching Vader sweaters, but who knows? I might want to go with another fandom theme next year. But “Merry Sithmas” is obviously in the lead.

I’m going to be sending out my cards tomorrow, and I don’t want to share what they look like quite yet, but I’m really excited about them! So I thought I’d share a couple of pictures from the informal photo shoot my mom did for me and Rory. 🙂

Nerdvember: The Final Week!

Whoooops, I’ve been so busy with work and trying to finish up inventory for Whimsic Alley’s Geeky Faire (which is happening TOMORROW!) that I totally forgot to make a post about my outfits for the final week of Set to Stunning’s Nerdvember challenge/contest! Mah bad.

Day 22: Winter is Coming

My sister and I headed to San Francisco so she could check out the ModCloth Fit Shop and meet up with our friend Brooke. I decided to wear my Lulu Tops Westeros Map dress (I do believe it’s a faux version of the Black Milk Clothing one, but whatever), a pair of earrings by Nerdy Buy Still Girly with Jon Snow and Ghost, and my Robb Stark necklace. We found the perfect snowflake backdrop at the mall to take pictures in front of too! 😀

Day 23: You Can’t Sith With Us

I layered my favorite Darth Vader pullover over my black and white tartan dress and paired it with my faux leather pink motorcycle jacket, Darth Vader brooch, and plushie Vader backpack. Kind of felt very Mean Girls x Clueless.

Day 24: Where the Wild Things Are

I layered my Where the Wild Things Are pullover by Out of Print Clothing over the Old Navy dress I wore for my cousin’s wedding, but totally didn’t realize how wrinkled it was until my friend Norma took my picture after we got out of class. Whoops!

Day 25: BB-8

You guys, I seriously love Utinni Bikini. I have a problem. I bought this BB-8 dress when they were having a special sale during Halloween, so I immediately placed an order. Haha! Even though I love the Dark Side, I do love some of the “good guys” too. And y’all know BB-8 has stolen my heart. ♥

Day 26: Happy Sithsgiving!

Basically a variation of Day 23’s outfit. Haha! My mom also happened to wear a Star Wars sweater for Thanksgiving too. We didn’t even plan to match, it just happened. The Force must be strong in my family! 🙂

Day 27: Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey

The folks at Level Up sent me a package full of some timey-wimey goodness! I paired the TARDIS belt and pendant that came in the package with my Her Universe dress featuring all the baddies from Doctor Who, along with a pendant I made with my companion, Rory, and a hair bow by my friend Jen (Walrus of the Sea). GERONIMO!

I’ll be making a special, more detailed post about the goodies I got, so be on the lookout for that!

Day 28: You Can’t Sith With Us: Part Deux

In case you’re wondering, yes. That is ANOTHER dress by Utinni Bikini. It has AT-ATs and Stormtroopers all over it! After I placed my order for the BB-8 dress, I got a message saying that I could get another dress for a super cheap price plus free shipping, soooo I caved in. Also, I’m feelin’ this bowler hat, you guys. Not sure if you can tell since it’s popped up in quite a few of my Nerdvember photos. 😛

Day 29: BB-8: Part Deux

BB-8 FOREVER AND EVER!! I ordered this BB-8 bomber by Her Universe while my sister drove us to Disneyland for Season of the Force a few weeks ago, and it finally came in on the 25th (unbeknowst to be since my email notification was buried in my inbox). I was also feeling particularly lazy this day and couldn’t be bothered to brush my hair. But I took a picture anyway because I was very determined to get all 30 days of November documented. 😛

Day 30: Girly Looking Nerfherder

For my final outfit of Nerdvember I paired this velvet black dress with Han and Leia pins I got at Disneyland, my Millennium Falcon belt, and Darth Vader purse. On my Instagram my description was:

Han Solo vibes today because sometimes I need a reminder to be a scruffy looking badass nerfherder. And self rescuing princess, and sometimes Sith Lord… I’m complicated.

So that’s a wrap on Nerdvember! I hope you all enjoyed my geek inspired outfits throughout the month. 😀

cheers

Nerdvember: Week Three

I nearly didn’t make it all 7 days for week three of Set To Stunning’s Nerdvember challenge/contest, but somehow I managed! Well… day 19 hardly counts, but whatever. I still wore something geeky and documented it. 😛 And you’ll notice I wore something Star Wars inspired for all but one day during week three!

Day 14: Darkside/Hoth

I got picked up from my Airbnb in Anaheim by my aunt, and just hung out at her place. This was the day before Season of the Force kicked off at Disneyland, so I packed my Utinni Bikini Hoth AT-AT dress because I needed something to mark the occasion! Oddly enough, that day was extremely cold. Not like Hoth cold, but cold enough to make me bust out with my parody of Nelly’s “Hot in Herre” — mine goes: it’s gettin’ Hoth in hurr (so Hoth!) / so put on some more clothes / I am gettin’ so cold / I’m gonna slice a tauntaun. 😀 I also paired my outfit with tons of Darkside accessories, including the Princess Leia Alex & Ani bracelet I picked up at the park and the Darth Vader brooch I made.

Day 15: First Order

I planned on wearing my First Order dress by Utinni Bikini weeks in advance for Season of the Force. Darkside swag, all day, err’day. Or, maybe not everyday, but MOST days. 😀

Day 17: Darth Vader

This day felt sooo long! I flew from San Diego to Sacramento and my dad picked me up to head home to Stockton. By the time I got home, I didn’t want to do a damn thing. But I did wear my favorite Vader pullover all day.

Day 18: R2-D2

I’ve been obsessing over this dress ever since I caught a glance of it on Her Universe’s Instagram page about a month ago. It’s too cute!! It’s only available at Disneyland, so I made it a point to track it down ASAP when I went to the park. I wore this for Wookiee Wednesday and when my friend Brianna passed by me she stopped and said, “Oh my God, I bought that dress at Disneyland too and I almost wore it today!” She even has the same cardigan as me, so we’re gonna plan a day to be super twins!

Day 19: Lazy Star Wars Pajama Day

I woke up with a headache, a sore throat, and a stuffy nose, so I called in sick and stayed home in my Star Wars jammies all day long.

Day 20: Firefly/Serenity

This was a more subtle geeky look since the only geeky thing I’m wearing is my Firefly necklace, by Quantum Mechanix and I also added my Serenity keychain on a purse, also by Quantum Mechanix. Shiny!

Day 21: Star Wars Baddies

This skirt is also by Her Universe and exclusive to Disney parks. It was also an impulse buy because I had no plans to buy it. I just wanted to get an R2 tank at Star Trader and then this skirt just lured me in! It’s really cool, because from afar it looks like a jungle print, but when you give it a closer look, it has silouhettes of Darth Vader, AT-ATs, Tie Fighters, Interceptors, Boba Fett, Jabba the Hutt, etc.

I can’t believe Nerdvember is almost over! So far it’s showed me that I have way more geeky clothes in my closet than I thought I did. 🙂

cheers
