Burdened With Dapper Purpose

dapper-day-disneyland-loki-marvel-disneybound-disneybounding

Fall Dapper Day at Disneyland is happening today and I am having a major case of fomo. I love going to Dapper Day because it’s so fun to see everyone decked out to the nines. I got to go to the Spring Dapper Day event back in April; my friends and I coordinated with Marvel themed Disneybound outfits. I was torn between putting together a Captain America outfit or a Loki one, but Loki’s got way more swag and I have more green, black, and gold in my closet than red, white, and blue. Spring Dapper Day took place a few days after my sister’s wedding, so Shanice helped me keep my victory rolls intact because I thought they’d go perfect with my pinup inspired Loki ensemble. My hair was so crunchy and flaky from all the hairspray I used, but that’s what happens when you’re burdened with dapper purpose ūüėõ

Since Thor Ragnarok hit theaters I’ve got both of Odin’s boys on the brain, and I saw that guests can now meet both Thor AND Loki at California Adventure!! And BTW – how AMAZING was Thor Ragnarok?! Captain America will forever be my fictional husband, but Thor is legit the best Avenger, and I’m so happy with the direction this film went in. Taika Waititi for all the things, please!!

If you’re wondering, “If these are from April, why it she only posting about this outfit now?” Y’all… it’s been a busy year. I’ve got a back catalog of outfit pics and other things that have yet to be posted on here. I’m trying to catch up, I swear!

Espionage Cosmetics: Nexus Literary Wrap Battle

I’m excited to officially announce that I am now a Nerd Makeup Ambassador for Espionage Cosmetics!

EC offers a couple of neat subscriptions called¬†Boom!Box and Nexus. With Boom!Box, subscribers get a new makeup item, a set of nail wraps, and other fun goodies. Nexus subscribers get advanced access to two¬†different nail wraps based on a theme, and they get to vote for which one they like best. Whichever design wins will be made available for everyone on their website, while the other nail wrap becomes an exclusive just for the subscriber. And for just $15 a month, that’s a steal considering that one nail wrap set retails between $10-$12!

I received August’s Nexus subscription which was literary themed and involved two of my favorite stories: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz. Okay, I have to be honest… I’ve never actually read the Alice in Wonderland books. – hides face in shame – I KNOW! I know! Buuuut, I just downloaded an audiobook with Christopher Plummer narrating both stories, so I’m looking forward to reading along with Captain Von Hot Damn Captain Von Trapp. If it’s any consolation, I know most of “The Jabberwocky” by heart. ūüėõ

Both designs were really cute, but at the end of the day I gravitated a bit more to “Paint the Roses Red,” which pays¬†homage to the cards painting the white roses in the Queen of Hearts’ garden. That one was actually the winner, so you can pick up a set for yourself on EC’s website now! I haven’t used either set yet because I’m waiting for the perfect occasion, especially with the “Emerald City Attire” since I’ll never be able to buy another set again. O__O

If you’d like to get¬†Nexus or Boom!Box, click here to subscribe. And don’t forget to watch my¬†unpacking video to get a peek of the Boom!Box exclusive item that EC was kind enough to send to me too! ūüôā

cheers le fancy geek fashion blogger

PS: You’ll most likely have leftovers or scraps after you use your nail wraps, but you don’t have to let them¬†go to waste! I upcycled¬†some extras from the “Computing” wraps I got at SDCC by cutting out hearts and sticking them on top of my painted nails. There was also enough left from the pinky wraps to place over my whole pinky nail again; all I had to do was trim it so it would fit the lining of my cuticle. Waste not, want not!
