Anakin, You’re Breakin’ My Heart

At the beginning of the month I got to go to Dapper Day at Disneyland! I knew for sure that I wanted to throw together a fancy looking Star Wars Disneybound, so I decided to seek inspiration from Queen Amidala. She is by far the most dapper character from the Star Wars universe as far as I’m concerned. I mean, the lady has tons of ensembles to choose from! For my Dapper Day outfit I decided to go for her most iconic look: the red and gold outfit we first see her in in Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

When brainstorming outfit ideas, I looked up pictures of it online and paid close attention to certain details as noted below:

If you’ve been a reader of my blog for awhile, you know I’m a stickler for details.

To emulate her headdress, I purchased maroon flower clips to stand in for the maroon lace and garnet gem, and I got these really pretty gold flowers at the Dapper Day Expo the night before. Thank goodness too, because I originally had a bunch of small gold flowers that I was going to put on bobby pins. What a nightmare that would’ve been to frantically make the night before! #ProfessionalProcrastinator 

For the fur trimming, I took off the detachable brown fur collar of an old blazer I have and used it as a stole. As you can see in the pictures below, I put a Queen Amidala brooch I made on it along with a heart shaped Vader pin since Anakin’s her boo. I also used my little Darth Vader purse by Loungefly 😀

Other little details include a vintage orange ring that matches the orange bulbs along the hem of Amidala’s dress, a Princess Leia bracelet, and gold chandelier earrings that replicate the ornate gold embroidered details on her dress (or robe?).

It was so much fun seeing so many people dressed all fancy at the park! Hopefully I’ll be able to go to the next Dapper Day event in November, but plans have been made to go next spring 🙂 My friends and I are going to do dapper Marvel Disneybounds. I’m still trying to figure out if I want to do a Loki, Captain America, or Agent Carter inspired outfit. I have a year to decide though, so I’ll let Future Nina deal with that.

Were you at Dapper Day? If so, how’d you dress up? And if you weren’t, what kind of outfit would you like to put together if you did go? Let’s talk aboot it in the comments section!

Dark Side of the Garden

le-fancy-geek-heart-of-haute-vintage-style-dress-loungefly-darth-vader-purse-fashion-blogger

Hey my little, ponies! I archived these outfit pics I took a few months ago and think now is a good time to bust them out. It is Leap Day, after all! This is the outfit I was supposed to wear to my cousin’s wedding in Hawaii back in September, but the material of my dress and shoes didn’t mesh very well with the tropical climate. Thank goodness I packed another dress that worked out well! And how perfect does my little Darth Vader purse go with it? 🙂

Tomorrow I’m supposed to start another Whole 30 again. Either that or I might start during the weekend so I have more time to prep for it. Either way, I’m going to be doing a more modified version because you’re not supposed to have breath mints or gum since it contains added sugar. I refuse to walk around with travel sized mouth wash or just suffer with stinky breath. I’m gonna keep on poppin’ my Altoids, thank you very much! I’m going to continue to drink all my teas too. I got some new ones from Riddles Tea Shoppe that are absolutely delicious, but they contain some ingredients that are Whole30 no-nos. Nothing too crazy though, so I think I should be okay.

Happy Leap Day, y’all! Hope you found yourself making the most of the extra day we got this year. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to try and figure out what book I want to read next!

They See BB Rollin’, Darth Hatin’

le fancy geek her universe hot topic bb-8 jacket star wars poe dameron geek fashion

‘ello, my little ponies! Like I said in my last post, I have more awkward moments with Darth Vader to share with you all 🙂

The day before my birthday I decided to wear my BB-8 bomber jacket and scarf, and Darth Vader wasn’t too thrilled by it. When we went, he had us line up and examined each of us. He saw my sister’s jacket said “Boba Fett” and said, “Good” to show his approval. Ryan’s Chewbacca tee was covered by his sweater, so Darth was kinda like I-don’t-know-about-this-one. And then when he got to me he said that he sensed that my allegiance was not with the Empire, which absolutely flabbergasted me! I mean, HOW DARE HE. How many times have I said on this very blog that I’m all about the dark side??? And it’s not like I could point out my Stormtrooper purse to him because I set it on the floor across the way. So I giggle nervously as he tells me that I can either align myself with the Empire or join the Rebellion and be crushed. You can see him telling me that I will be crushed in the picture below.

And then we got to meet Chewie! This was actually my first time meeting him since I only met Darth when I went to the meet & greets back in November when they launched Season of the Force. I met Chewie for a second time on my actual birthday. Anywho, it’s a good thing I wore my BB-8 jacket because when he was about to hug my sister he stopped when he noticed her jacket said Boba Fett. Then he began to guide her towards the exit. It was so funny! My sister said she’d like him win if he let her stay, but as we left he looked at Ryan and growled in a way that said, “Watch out for that one.” 😀

[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!

cheers
